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.”

Joint lobbying effort to protect one in three teenagers who will deal with abuse in a relationship

Oklahoma City, Feb. 25, 2009 – Mary Kay Inc. and non-profit partner Break the Cycle are encouraging legislation supporting teen dating violence prevention education in Oklahoma schools. Also joining the effort are the Oklahoma Coalition to End Domestic Violence and local members of the Mary Kay independent sales force who will convene at the capitol building, meet with state legislators and discuss the importance of educating middle and high school students about healthy dating and relationships. Nationally, one in three teenagers will deal with physical, sexual, verbal or emotional abuse in a relationship and two-thirds of them will never report it to anyone (Teen Dating Abuse Survey, TRU 2005).

The organizations are lobbying Oklahoma lawmakers to introduce preemptive legislation to educate students about domestic violence and healthy relationships. Such legislation would also require schools to implement guidelines and discipline procedures for responding to incidents of teen dating violence on campus. Only Texas and Rhode Island currently have a statewide statute with such a requirement for schools.

“Mary Kay is hopeful that we can help end teen dating violence,” said Mary Kay Inc. Vice President of Government Relations Anne Crews. “Mary Kay has an ongoing commitment to ending domestic violence and we’re encouraging legislators nationwide to pass laws supporting teen dating violence education.”

“Break the Cycle, one of the nation’s leading organizations addressing teen dating violence, is launching this national effort to pass state legislation aimed at helping youth recognize that they have the right to safe and healthy relationships,” said Break the Cycle Executive Director Marjorie Gilberg. “The education system is the best vehicle to implement teen dating violence prevention and intervention programs and the greatest way to help end teen dating violence before it starts.”

As part of this effort, Mary Kay Inc. and Break the Cycle are encouraging individuals to demonstrate support for this effort by signing an online petition at http://www.enddatingviolence.com. The petition gathers electronic signatures supporting teen dating violence prevention and awareness programs in schools nationwide.

Mary Kay first partnered with Break the Cycle to sponsor Ending Violence, Break the Cycle’s latest educational tool — an innovative, interactive DVD program developed from the organization’s evidence-based curriculum. Already expected to revolutionize dating violence prevention education, the Ending Violence interactive DVD and accompanying resource package was developed to educate youth ages 12-18 about the dynamics of dating abuse, how to build healthy relationships, and their legal rights and responsibilities. The Ending Violence DVD, available to schools in Fall 2009, also allows for total flexibility so educators can focus on the most appropriate content for students.

Partner to Reach More Customers with Your Direct Sales or Home Party Plan Business

When you are running your own Direct Sales or  Home Party Plan business it can be tough reaching new customers. It can feel like there is too much competition or that you are hitting up the same people over and over and they get burned out.  One of the the things I have been seeing success with lately is partnering with other businesses that offer complementary products or services.  I am a Mary Kay consultant so I have reached out to local photographers and image consultants to do joint sessions and workshops. It has benefited both businesses and we now have a partnership.

Most Direct Sales and Home Party Plan businesses have great partnering potential.  For example I could see a “Spice up your Love Life” party featuring a Mary Kay Color Session and Passion Party Demo to give women ideas on how to pull of a new sexy look and add some spice to their relationship.   Imagine serving delicious Tastefully Simple products on gorgeous serveware from Princess House.  Be Creative, there are so many potential combinations!

Have you partnered with other businesses?
