Retreat To Alcatraz!


Welcome to another day at the Leadership Retreat.! This day has a wild and mystical tour in store for our leaders; one that is full of legends, tall tales, eery feelings and one of a kind history. Friday morning began with an appearance from Kody, Steve and Vanessa to prepare the group for the tour of a lifetime. 

Untitled design (3)Next up, Alcatraz! That’s right… the Leadership group headed to tour the infamous Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. Often known as “The Rock” Alcatraz was  designed to house those criminal who continually and repeatedly caused issues at other penitentiaries. Although Alcatraz was only in use for 29 years it was the home to the countries most dangerous outlaws, bank robbers, mobsters and other notorious criminals.  During its 29 years of operation, the penitentiary claimed that no prisoner successfully escaped, although a total of 36 prisoners made 14 escape attempts. Alcatraz is truly a mysterious landmark and our leaders are in for a treat!

It was a humbling and somber experience touring the prison. All of the  distributors experienced incredible and insightful reflections throughout the day. “It had a somber energy but it relates back to how I want to life my life. Going back to corporate life and being in my own private prison. The contrast to SendOutCards is even more special.” Said one distributor.

The tour through Alcatraz was one unique way to reflect back on the choices that are made and the life you choose. The SendOutCards mantra includes positivity and giving back to others and in doing so we know that your life will be filled with abundance and joy.

After the memorable time at Alcatraz, the leaders headed back to the Palace Hotel for their final gathering for the day. Vanessa Hunter and Steve Schulz got the energy up and pumping for what would certainly be a unique activity for the leaders to participate in,  “CEO For A Day.”

Untitled design (6)The distributors were sectioned into specific groups. Each group was given a current topic on SendOutCards and assigned to elect a CEO and come up with a solution that would benefit both the distributors and the company. Each group was allotted time to present their topic and the solution to the room.

This activity was eye opening for many as it impacted them greatly by giving them first hand experience and the understanding of what our corporate executives go through when big decisions are made within the company.

“It reaffirmed our respect and admiration for the corporate executives.” – Bo Lowe.

Untitled design (7)The time is now to look forward, move forward and to build the greatness that is SendOutCards. The staple of this weekend has been about recruiting. Refocusing on the business, helping others to grow and to fully commit yourself to being apart of this wonderful journey together. Our SOC family is what keeps us connected, it is what keeps us strong and it is what keeps us united.

“You have to present the Business Opportunity every time. Doesn’t matter what the comp plan is, getting more people in the system the THE answer. Recruiting fixes everything!” Kody Bateman. 

This was a great reminder to all as to why they joined the business and how they can continue to lead and to grow with SendOutCards. Tune in tomorrow to see what SendOutCards has in store for this leadership group!

Untitled design-28The Leadership Retreat is off to an exciting start! Executives and above along with several leaders have all gathered together for one memorable weekend, full of adventures in beautiful downtown San Francisco. Early Thursday afternoon the leaders began to arrive in full force, ready for the retreat and excited to check in to the breath taking Palace Hotel where they will be staying for the duration of their trip.

The Palace Hotel, an historic downtown San Francisco hotel, holds a fabled past steeped in grandeur.  For over a century, the Palace Hotel has been the site of important and regal events ranging from formal political gatherings to the exclusive galas of high society and private parties.  The Palace Hotel today maintains the hotel’s tradition of excellence and sophistication. Resuming its place among elite society, the new Palace Hotel attracted dignitaries, business moguls and celebrities alike.

When the attendees arrived Thursday evening to the event, they were showered with retreat-themed items in their welcome bag. Their SendOutCards welcome bag was filled with authentic San Francisco sourdough bread, SendOutCards vinegar and oils, an exclusive themed keepsake kit and also new SendOutCards treats.

After an exclusive Executive and above meeting, our Leadership group gathered into an incredible reception room ready to find out what the weekend had in store for all of them. Welcomed by Kody Bateman, Steve Schulz and Vanessa Hunter, the attendees were ecstatic to learn about a few of the thrilling events yet to come; you could feel their anticipation growing mixed with their overwhelming excitement!

The food and drinks were flowing as our SOC family mingled throughout the evening, taking time to connect with one another and build their SOC relationships. With incredible activities still awaiting, we are sure our leaders will lose some sleep just thinking about the next big day at the SendOutCards 2014 Leadership Retreat!

 Stay tuned throughout this special weekend to see photos, highlights and a full recap of all the wonderful experiences to be had at this year’s Leadership Retreat! Take a look at all the fun SOC Distributors are already having!

The BIG Announcement!

And now the moment you have all been waiting for… your first official SendOutCards Homecoming King is…

Untitled design-19Spirit Week was so great! It’s fun to participate with people I don’t know personally, but I know them spiritually. Sendoutcards is special, and attracts special people, I always try to connect with new people in sendoutcards. Spirit week helped me do just that.

Sendoutcards is the family I never had. From Kody, Jordan, Demarr, Bob and BettyAnn and my sponsor Michelle, I feel they want my success more than myself. Working together with my downline and other lines is fun, rewarding and having testimonials of people receiving cards that change their lives touches my heart every time. I want this for the rest of my life.

Next up is your Homecoming Queen, the beautiful and lovely…

April Curtainsphoto-4“My favorite part of Spirit Week was seeing everyone posting their most memorable memories in SendOutCards over the years. It was fun and very neat to see where our company use to be and how far we have come along. 

Having a Spirit Week made me realize all of us have a common goal within the SendOutCards family to go out and help others achieve their dreams and still have fun while doing it. Seeing pictures from all of the world of us doing this on Facebook meant a lot to me in knowing we are a unique company on a mission that cannot be stopped! 

I used Homecoming week to market my business by sharing with my friends what we were doing at SendOutCards. This has created excitement and interest with those who I’ve reached out to. People are watching what we are doing on social media and when they see we are having fun they can’t help but ask what is going on with your business!” 

SendOutCards employees also joined in on the fun of Spirit Week and we have selected our first official internal Homecoming Royalty Court.
