Growing up in Mary Kay
I remember last year I read an article about a Mary Kay Family.
True enough it was in Mary Kay’s very own Applause Magazine,
But I was impressed at how one family could use Mary Kay as it’s form of income.
The Nelson Family may have seen some extremely rough times,
Losing a business and serious health concerns,
But the Mary Kay opportunity stepped in to help them.
Each in their own time mind you, daughter, then mother, then daughter joined Mary Kay.
Each are now pursuing their individual dreams of becoming Mary Kay Independent National Sales Directors!
How exciting is that.
But it all started with a first small step of signing a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement.
You’re probably sitting there reading this post are probably wondering well how to do I get there?
What do I have to do to become a Mary Kay Independent Future Executive Senior Sales Director?
How do I get to the Mary Kay Independent National Sales Director status?
What was true in this Mary Kay family is also true with you.
You have to have a Why that will make you cry.
You have to have a WHY that will make you become so laser focused that nothing will deter you.
In the Nelson family – it was a father with cancer.
Your why may be different.
My WHY’s name is Olivia
But no matter what or WHO your why is you still have to start somewhere.
The Mary Kay Career Path
When I read the Nelson family’s story I thought,
“Boy did they need Mary Kay”
I’ll tell you from my own experience, no one “needs” Mary Kay.
They just DO and BE Mary Kay.
