Decode Skin’s DNA >>> Recode Skin’s Health
Just as you can now cure diseases by understanding our unique genetics, so too can you also unlock the secrets of skin DNA to create a truly custom skin protocol. In other words, you can also now heal our skin from the inside out. While we cannot change our skin’s DNA, we can modify its expression by how we treat it and prescribe what it truly needs to stay healthy. Additional testing can also determine food sensitivities, hormone and nutrient levels which can exacerbate skin conditions.

Four Steps to Flawless Skin:
1) DETECT: know our genetic predispositions to skin photoaging, oxidative damage, inflammation, hydration and nutrient deficiency risk factors
2) PREVENT: manage skin risk factors by identifying them and responding proactively
3) TREAT: address nutrient deficiencies and hormonal imbalances
4) REVERSE: leverage skin regenerative science to combat skin aging

Weed Out the Snake Oil – How to Select Lawful and Efficacious CBD Products
This session will provide an overview of the legality of CBD and hemp infused topical products and applicable regulations. How has the regulatory landscape changed and how has the market grown? The legality of CBD and hemp infused topical products turns upon Farm Bill compliance – a dizzying endeavor resulting from a patchwork of varying state and federal laws, false claims, and a lack of standards and accountability. Where the lack of regulatory compliance may result in the trafficking of a controlled substance and product liability claims, weeding out snake oil has never been more important for distributors.

A SWOT Analysis is a comprehensive audit and competitive analysis that analyzes the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing your business. An honest SWOT analysis helps a business identify what it's doing well, where it can improve, and where it fits in the competitive landscape. For a business to maintain productivity and stay ahead of the curve, a SWOT analysis is necessary. It forces us to take a look at the bigger picture, plan for the future, and determine what the company’s competitive advantage is. Going through the SWOT process allows owners and leaders to take the time to not lose out on any lucrative opportunities. In this session we will guide you through the SWOT Analysis process and turn it into actionable strategies you can implement immediately to better your business.
