Deconstruct to reconstruct

I’m recovering from a two day training session with SeneGence on social media and personal development and I am filled with ideas and information.

Recovering? Yes, there is a lot of information I need to process, things to plan out and ideas to implement.

I’ll be sketching things out to work smarter and not harder, to make the best use of my time. Time I can spend with my family, time I can spend with my knitting, and time I can spend on myself. I cannot forget myself.

I’m a firm believer in personal development, to better oneself. And our VP of Personal Development was her vivacious self. I want to bottle just a minuscule amount her energy and keep it with me. She had us dancing, laughing and enthralled with every word she spoke.

Our international guest from the USA, a fellow SeneSister and Queen (yass, we have royal ranks), spoke to us from her soul. So much of what she spoke about resonated deep within me. Tears flowed. Hugs were priceless.

We had Crown Princesses train us with invaluable information about how they have successfully used social media to build their businesses and teams.

And then there was the social media guru who made my brain melt and reform with the knowledge of how to successfully build and grow my business online.

 

ALL the notes were written. Pages and pages of them.

I have much to write out, plan and work on. It’s so exciting going forward, to feel so passionate about what I am doing. I will stretch and grow beyond my comfort zone.

Never before have I been part of a company, a sisterhood, where there is so much love, a willingness to share information, to help one another grow and develop new skills and gain self confidence.

Ultimately, I want to lead. To successfully lead and empower a team of people passionate, driven, open minded and open hearted about life and the opportunity we have been given.

I see the crown on my head.

Sunday Morning Musings

How good is coffee??!!

No, this isn’t a post about coffee haha!

It’s early on a Sunday morning and I’m hanging with my youngest kiddo, writing while she plays.

I’m tweaking my latest order, trying to decide what I want to add to my kit to get on your faces!

Multi-tasking and listening to one of my lovely local leaders tell her SeneStory and it’s absolutely inspiring. So many amazing stories I have heard in the short time I’ve been with SeneGence that have touched my soul. And stories of how SeneGence has empowered them.

I can attest to that as this company, this incredible group of women, have empowered me and made me a better person.

I’m putting myself out there not only for my business but as a friend, making new connections and empowering other women.

As I’ve mentioned previously, I have a couple of mental illnesses that are under control. In fact, my condition has improved because of my business and what I’m doing with it. My doctor is amazed.

I have reached out to other anxiety sufferers to let them know I’m here for them if they need to talk at anytime, I’m always listening. And I’m learning so much about myself and what I am capable of.

I want to empower my customers by giving them their best skin with our skincare and our makeup, putting their best face forward with confidence.

I want to empower my team by not only looking amazing but by creating their best life through SeneGence and their own business.

Aaaaaaah! I love my job!! Never in my life did I think I’d ever say that after corporate work for over 10 years.

I finally feel like I’m doing what I am meant to be doing, aside from being a mumma to my gorgeous girls.

When I get messages from my customers telling me how happy they are with their products and what it’s doing for them, it makes my spirit soar! I’m like, “yassssss girl!” SeneGratitude one might call it haha!

It starts with one customer, one recruit to empower them, to change their lives because this is life changing. This isn’t just make up and skin care. It’s about confidence. It’s about taking charge to change your life. Life is ever evolving, I believe in going with the flow but also trusting your gut and that’s how I got here. Does this resonate with any of you?

I hope that it does.

Time for more coffee 😉

 

Knowing Me, Knowing You

*gulps coffee*  Aaaaah 4th cup for the morning!

Sitting here in my comfy chair, writing, watching my Rockies play baseball, and listening to a training video via Facebook. I’m what you would call a multitasker.

The kiddos are at school and I’m making the most of this time that I’m afforded. I wrote about the opportunity and being #blessed doing what I love.

And I am, I’m living the dream. When I’m not writing, I’m knitting and like a fiend at that. I’m so passionate about knitting. And I’m no granny, thank you very much! I’m turning 38 this month, been knitting for 13 years. Self taught too. I have a crafty girl gang and we meet on a weekly basis. That circle, that connection we have through knitting is strong and necessary in this day and age.

I can’t get enough of this blue 💙💙💙

A post shared by Christina (@knitster) on

I’ve made many friends on Twitter because of my love of sports, mainly because of ice hockey and baseball. I just love connecting with them because of this mutual love of sport. Yes, an Aussie obsessed with North American sports.

I’ve talked about the SeneGence sisterhood, having that connection with other women and how vital it is to have that in your life. I’m making lifelong friends in this sisterhood, locally and overseas.

Connecting, as you can tell, is very important to me. Having grown up very disconnected from the world around me and being held back because of my mental illnesses from a young age. I have no shame telling the world that I have them; I have bipolar type 2, anxiety and I have ADHD. What a combo! But thanks to my brilliant psychiatrist, I manage all of my symptoms and can function clearly (I’m not a zombie) on a daily basis for my family.

I’m here to serve; to promote and offer what I can in life. Whether it’s about motherhood and parenting or mental health, or if it’s getting you to pick up the knitting needles and giving it a go or getting your knitting mojo back, or sharing with you about the incredible make up and skincare I am so freaking proud represent, I am here for you.

And there are my thoughts for the morning! Was there a point to any of it? For you to get to know me a bit better and what I mostly do on a daily basis haha!

 

If anyone wants to talk about anything, you’re welcome to contact me via Twitter, Facebook or email.

 

I love what I do and do what I love

I’m blessed. I don’t often say it out loud, but I truly am.

When I finally accepted the opportunity to start my own business, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

A supportive network of women, who lift each other up, regardless of rank in the company. It’s a sisterhood. We look out for each other, help one another grow as business women and as individuals.

I’m learning a lot about leadership and teaching others, it’s something I have always wanted to do. I look forward to growing my team and my business. I don’t want to rush into things without knowing about my people, products, etc. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

I believe in self development, doing something every day. Learning, growing, evolving. All to be a better person, a better distributor for my customers, and a leader for my team members. I need to lead by example.

Putting myself out there in the public is scary and freeing at the same time. I’m saying, “here I am, take me or leave me!” And I did that when I went live on Facebook when I read out My SeneGence Why. I was so vulnerable in the moment but I pushed through it. I had to get over the FOWOT (Fear Of What Others Think) and just do it.

I don’t think I could’ve done it if it wasn’t for SeneGence, (well, it is my SeneGence why after all). I’ve gained such confidence. Confidence I never thought I’d ever have. And through that and putting myself out there, I’ve been recognised by my team manager for my efforts in the month of May. I’m stunned and honoured. Never in all the years I worked a corporate job was I recognised for my efforts.

I love what I do and do what I love.

With all that said, if this sounds like it is something you want to do, to start your own business, to grow as a person, get your confidence back and are driven to create your own destiny, then please join me and my growing team and our sisterhood. I can’t wait to meet you!
