Q. Will Gold Canyon offer discounts on business supplies (like name badges and business cards) since the titles are changing and we will need to get new ones?
A. We are excited to launch The Company Store's Grand Opening Preview at Convention 2011 and know you'll be thrilled with the new selection (over 120 items available!). With the changes to The Company Store, printable business cards are very reasonably priced (just US $8.00/CDN $10.25 for 200) and will therefore not be offered at a further discount. Business cards will be available at the Company Store's Grand Opening Preview at Convention. The official launch of the store to all Consultants will follow thereafter.

Q. Will it be easier to earn trips with this new Career Plan? I've noticed that the majority of trip earners are always Gold Managers and above.
A. As stated in the FAQ dated 6/29/11, this year's Annual Trip Incentive does not need to be updated because all points earned are based on your sales and that of your team. Gold Canyon set the required point minimums based on a Consultant's start date to make this incentive achievable for everyone!

There is no title requirement for this trip as in years past. So, all Consultants can earn this trip! The company also recognizes many of those Consultants who achieve the title of Gold Manager and higher will likely earn the Annual Trip Incentive because they have well-established and successful businesses.

The 2012 Annual Trip Incentive and President's Invitation will be announced at this year's Convention in August.

Q. If someone is in Associate Status effective July 1, how will the Career Plan enhancements affect them?

Q: How soon I can start using the new title of "Fragrance Consultant"? Can I print "Fragrance Consultant" rather than "Demonstrator" now?

Q. Is the Quick Start program changing?
A. It's pretty much the same only we've added a Sponsoring Bonus. New sponsors will continue to be eligible to earn $425 in free products as they achieve the three sales levels of Quick Start. The sales amounts will remain the same. Sponsoring and coaching new team members will still help an upline earn promotions and increased commissions.

Anyone who has a new personal sponsor within their first 90 days as of 9/1/11 is eligible to earn the new Quick Start Sponsor Bonus for the remainder of the new sponsors Quick Start time frame.

Q: I think I'm close to a reward from the Leadership Bonus Program. Will I be rewarded for my progress or for achieving a reward level in the Leadership Bonus Program?
A: The Leadership Bonus Program will end after 8/31/11. The new Career Plan will provide leadership rewards as part of the standard compensation plan. If you are currently in the Leadership Bonus Program, we will honor the front end and back end Leadership Bonuses as outlined in the current requirements. If you earn the front end bonus before 8/31/11 you will still be able to earn the back end bonus per the current program requirements.

Q: I'm currently working to achieve the title of Manager and earn a trip to the Manager's Retreat. Will there still be a Manager's Retreat this year and beyond?
A: There will not be a Manager's Retreat in October. Gold Canyon will be announcing a new leadership style retreat at the 2011 Convention which will replace the current Manager's Retreat Program and will occur early in 2012. If you were scheduled to come to the October Manager's Retreat because you met the requirements for the May retreat and deferred until the October retreat, you will be included in the transition to the new leadership training program. Those who earn the title of Manager by 8/31/11 and meet all the qualifying requirements of the Manager's Retreat Program will also be included in the transition to the new leadership training program.

Q. What will my title be at Convention?
A. This year you decide. Since we will be in a transition period at this year's Convention, we're empowering you to declare a new title of which you'll control on your nametag. For recognition, Gold Canyon will recognize you for your earned titles between 7/1/10 and 6/30/11.

Posted: June 29
Q. How will my title be calculated for 9/1/11?
A. To establish your title on 9/1/11, Gold Canyon will be using the new Career Plan logic to determine your title for the months of May, June and July of this year. We will use the highest title achieved during that three-month period to determine your new title on 9/1/11. This is just to establish a baseline. Your compensation for the month of September will be determined based upon the new Career Plan policies. So on 9/1/11, you may come into the plan as one title, but earn a higher title that month and be paid for such.

Posted: June 29
Q. Will there be new reports to help me understand what I need to do to be successful with the new Career Plan?
A. Yes. A whole new set of online reports has been designed to coincide with the Career Plan structure so you can more effectively manage your business and your team.

Posted: June 29
Q. When will commissions be paid?
A. Commissions will still be paid on or by the 10th of each month.

Posted: June 29
Q. What about the Annual Trip Incentive? Will it change after 9/1/11?
A. The Annual Trip Incentive does not need to be updated! The points earned are based on your sales, your team sales and the sales of your qualified new sponsors.

Posted: June 29
Q. Will my team or upline be moved on 9/1/11?
A. Absolutely not. Your upline will continue to be your upline and your downline team will continue to be your team. Now you will have more opportunities to be compensated for everyone in your downline, no matter how many levels deep they may be.

Posted: June 29
Q. Are the fundraiser requirements changing?
A. Yes, if you have $2,700 or more in commissionable sales during the previous 12 months, then you can take the certification quiz and facilitate your own fundraisers. There will no longer be a title requirement that makes you eligible to administer a fundraiser.

Posted: June 29
Q. Will I have to recertify between 9/1/11 and 12/31/11 to administer a fundraiser?
