Hi, Ladies!!! I'm so excited about February! I had lots of great conversations with many of you this past month. Some of you were working on goals that were longer-term. You worked hard, and this was the PAYOFF!!! Some of you didn't quite make it to the goal you had set, but you're not willing to give up. Guess what? That's going to pay off, too! The only way you can lose in this business is if you QUIT! But, you're not a quitter, are you? I know you're not. And, that's why some of the conversations I had in February were great. They were filled with perseverance, determination, and innovative thought. I'm so proud of those of you who are stepping out of your comfort zone, or out of the box completely! Watch out for these girls at Convention!

First and foremost, I want to recognize the girls who earned a trip to
Cancun, Mexico!

this is a picture of the Aqua Resort in Cancun, where the ladies will be lounging at the Infinity Pool!

**~~~DEANNA GEIER~~~** (trip for 2)
**~~~RENEE DANG~~~**

This is the ultimate achievement in Sensaria. These ladies worked for 8 long months consistently towards this goal. WAY TO GO!!!

One thing I want to share about this: Almost all of these women said the same thing to me once they got their last PV and qualified Reps in. They all said that they were surprised at how easy it was to earn a trip. They had looked at it before as if it was a goal that was difficult to attain. But, once they got there, they said that it was actually very easy. If it doesn't seem easy to you, give one of these ladies a call and ask them to explain in more detail how they made it easier!

And, now...for the rest of our top February Achievers...

I would also like to give a shout out to Stacy Hastings, who has been with Sensaria for over 6 years, and just had her 4th baby. Judah Cole was born on February 1st! He's a true gem, and we can't wait for mom to show him off at her Spa Parties!

Judah at home in a quilt Deanna Geier made for him!
One final shout-out goes to Nicole Heller who is planning a big-ol' grand re-opening. She completed her Aesthetician training, and is now putting all her energy into her business. She had a guest list of 85 last time we talked. Her event is planned for March 24th, so we can't wait to hear how it goes!
If you have success stories, goals, or tips to share with the group, email them to me and I will post them on the next entry!

Leadership Conference--Portland, OR, January 10-12

Hi, All! We just returned a few days ago from our Leadership retreat in Portland, OR. What a time we had. One of my favorite parts of conferences is always the announcements. This year was particularly exciting because not only did we get fantastic new Spring products, we also got one of the best, most acheivable incentives Sensaria has ever offered. The trip to Cancun may be out of your reach, but the new HAVE IT ALL incentive puts everyone on equal playing ground. New Reps have the exact same chance to earn one, two, or all 5 awards this year. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, log in to your SPA site and check out the details. What will you choose??? Will it be a diamond bracelet??? How about a Cruise??? Not about the material things--think of all you could do if you chose $500 cash instead...The possibilities are endless, and this incentive is yours for the taking.
Besides all the fun annoucements of new products and incentives, the reason I go to conference is to see all of my awesome team members. If you've never been to Convention or Leadership, now is the time to start planning to come. Here are some of the reasons...

The new products smell, feel, and look unbelievable. Check them out online, or in the picture below:
So, did I give you enough reasons to want to come to Tacoma in July? That's where this year's National Convention will be held, July 17-19. Make your plans now. I want to know who's with me??? I'm so excited to see all of you!

December Recognition

YAY! December is over and we are well into the first month of a New Year! I'm so excited to see what this year brings for our team. I'm excited to see who our first promotion of the year will be.

Special Acknowledgement

This month, Jennifer Tracer gets the extra recognition for her outstanding improvement. This month, she had 10 Active lines, and personally qualified 5 new Reps!!! Excellent work, Jenn! We're impressed!

A job well done in a Holiday Month. Excellent achievements to all. Keep working towards those goals, and keep checking in often.

Just a quick suggestion: If you are feeling like you could use some improvement in your business but not sure if anything will work, or if you can even get what you want, this is the time. Trust me and my (almost) 7 years with Sensaria when I tell you that the single most effective thing you can do to help out your business is to attend a conference. Sensaria has made this possible for everyone now. Our Leadership Conference is January 10-12 in Portland, Oregon. That's just a hop skip and jump for many of us in WA, OR, CA, UT, etc. If you're not sure that's true or not, try me. Come and judge for yourself. No one leave unaffected. I'm looking forward to seeing you there!!!

Email me your class dates for December and January--I want to check in with you after your bookings to see how they are going. Need a pep talk? Have a question? Having an issue? Send me a note and we'll set up a time to talk!

I was in Anaheim, CA this past weekend at a Conference (that was not work-related). The keynote speaker was Bruce Jenner who is commonly referred to as the greatest male athelete in the world because he holds the world record in the men's decathlon event. He won the event in 1976, which is where he set the record. That was 32 years ago, and the record still stands. Many of us are either way too young to remember that, or even not even around at that time. So, it was fun to hear the account of the events straight from him.

His main message was no different than what many of us have heard before, but it was still quite inspiring. The message was basically that you can be/do/become anything you want if you just decide on it. He actually raced at the Olympics 4 years before he won. He made the American team by the skin of his teeth, then placed 10th in the Decathlon at the Olympics in 1972 at the age of 22. The day of the race that year, he was so moved by the medal ceremony that it caused him to wonder what he could do if he practiced every day for the next 4 years. He knew what he wanted, then he decided he would and could get it. So, for 4 years, he was focused. But, one thing he said caught my attention. He said he determined a slogan that encompassed a few smaller goals. The decathlon is a series of 10 events. Yes, that means he had to win 10 events. Ten. TEN! The events are all given point values, and the overall winner is the person who has the most points at the end. The Gold Medalist in 1972 (the one by whom he had been so inspired) got just over 8400 points. So, his slogan while he was practicing and focused on becoming the Gold Medalist in 1976 was "85 in '75 and 86 in '76". His goal was to acheive 8500 points in 1975, and 8600 points in 1976 at the Olympics. His story was long and detailed. We all sat on the edge of our seats to hear a story that took place over 30 years ago. But, to make a long story short, he experienced setbacks, he lost races, and he flopped at times. But, that did not stop him from maintaining focus. He did get to his "85 in '75", and at the Olympics, he scored 8634, and was the first athelete ever to score over 8600 points in the event.

How does this story apply to you? You tell me. Do you have a dream? Does it seem impossible? Are you where you want to be? If not, could you get there? What would it take? I'm guessing that becoming a Decathlon champion is not your dream. I'm guessing that your dream might not even be as difficult to acheive. My advice? Start small. Have success, then go bigger!
