This weekend I was able to attend Mary Kay Career Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina and what a fantastic event it was. I learned so much about value selling, setting goals and developing plans to achieve those goals. I was energized seeing the women AND men who have achieved outstanding business milestones and shared their stories of success with us. I also received lots of recognition for the things I have already accomplished and I am super motivated to achieve the rest of my goals by Seminar in July!
One of the highlights for me was the session on Team Building led by the the fabulous Elite Executive National Sales Director Gloria Mayfield Banks. Gloria’s training always resonates well with me because like her I come from a corporate sales background so the skills and techniques she teaches are the same solid skills and value selling techniques I trained and used in the corporate world. So often people don’t recognize that Mary Kay is a strong business built on the direct sales model and if you use proven value selling techniques you will be successful in this business just as you would in any other commission sales organization.
Once you take away the emotion that often clouds judgement and views of this business and recognize it for the skin care and cosmetic commission sales business that it is you can see the potential and benefits of being in this business for yourself and having the earning potential of 50% commission with no cap and you setting your own quotas versus the imposed quotas, lower commissions and commission caps typical of corporate sales organizations, along with the flexibility to work your business when, where and how you want. I can’t understand why any commission sales professional, especially anybody in a consultative sales role, would not jump at the opportunity to at least give it a try and see what kind of business they can build. At $100 startup costs and 90% buy-back guarantee what have you really got to lose?
I am moving my business forward and plan to be a Sales Director and earn the use of a FREE Car by the time Seminar rolls around in July. Will you be joining me? I’d love to have you!
