Career Conference was Fantastic!

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!

Mary Kay Inc. Offers Women Compelling Solution to Economic Downturn Through Direct Selling

DALLAS – (Business Wire) After adding up nearly 600,000 jobs lost in January 2009 alone and an all-time unemployment rate high of 7.6 percent across the United States since 1992, many Americans discover a real-life question that personally counts: “How can I make ends meet right now?” Global cosmetics leader Mary Kay Inc. provides a powerful answer for any woman who wants to be her own boss and control her own destiny – becoming a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.

Based on the global economic downturn, today represents a great time for women to have their own Mary Kay business – to earn extra money and / or begin a new or second business. The Mary Kay business success equation includes popular, quality Mary Kay® skin care and color cosmetics products; motivating rewards; powerful business tools and resources; flexible schedules and inspirational networking and support among independent sales force members. Anyone can be a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant – from stay-at-home moms to Harvard MBAs and everything in between, as well as virtually all ages and ethnicities.

“Women from all backgrounds across the United States have discovered they can take their financial situation into their own hands right now, instead of worrying when they, or others in their lives, will be affected by our challenging economy,” said Yvette Franco, vice president of U.S. marketing for Mary Kay Inc. “The Mary Kay business opportunity offers women so much more than selling lipstick and our other modern products consumers need and want. Mary Kay independent sales force members can determine their own success, pace and schedule.”

Larry Chonko, the Thomas McMahon professor in business ethics at the University of Texas at Arlington, added: “Traditionally, direct selling has seen a boost during turbulent economic times. In the past, Americans have looked for an additional source of income when the economy takes a downturn, and opportunities such as having a Mary Kay business have been an attractive option for many women.”

Looking for Women who want to be Empowered!

I believe that the elements of greatness are in all of us. Some of you just haven’t discovered it yet! 2009 is a year for change, I am looking for some women that I can empower!  Could you be one of them?

Here are some of the things that I am looking for:

  1. I am looking for busy women. I have found that busy women get the most done. In today’s economy is is not uncommon to find women who work more than one job and/or business while raising a family. Busy women typically are good time managers, and prioritize well.
  2. I look for women who don’t already have a huge network of friends and family. That gives them a false sense of security in building a home business because friends and family are NOT usually the best customers. I will teach you how to grow your business using those who you haven’t met yet!
  3. I am looking for women who don’t consider themselves the sales type. Learning to sell is a skill that I have been very successful in transferring to others! If you associate a sales person with someone who is pushy, that is not what I look for. Pushy people have difficulty building customers and relationships.
  4. I am looking for women who can use some extra income to make ends meet. Although most women are not motivated by money, having the need for extra money will keep you going when times are difficult.
  5. I look for women who are family oriented. I have found that women will do so much more for their family than they ever would for themselves. (that is their WHY)
  6. I look for women who are decision makers. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Implementation is vital for success, not paralysis by analysis!

If you feel that you have at least 4 of these qualities, I would love to work with you. Maybe you are still looking for additional streams of income and haven’t decided on a direct sales company. I would love to talk to you and help you decide if my business is one that I can share with you.
