How were you recruited?
I was asked to attend the Model Search Contest, and since my daughter is a model, I thought it would be a hoot. Learned about Leadership and was very interested.
What about Mary Kay appealed to you most?
I liked the concept of the company, the Golden Rule, being able to invest in myself, and being able to help other women in a variety of ways.
Tell us about one of your most memorable or embarassing situations while in Mary Kay
I was very nervous about bothering people – I meet new people easily and find it easy to talk with them, but I didn’t want to take up their time or make them feel like I was only interested in them for a sale. Instead, I have received thank you notes from women saying I made their day, even if they elected not to attend an event.
What did you learn from your Mary Kay experience?
I wish the world was not plagued with greedy and selfish people of low integrity, who will lie to get ahead. But the world is also full of honest, lovely people who truly want to help others. When I recruit, I disclose all the things I would want to know ahead of time if it were me. My Director goes with me anytime I need help, and I in turn accompany my team members and teach them how to deal with people in a genuine way. I’ve learned about my own potential and affirmed my own sense of values and I am having FUN every day.
What are you doing now? Working full or part time? Working from home? etc. I teach preschool in the mornings – which I love – and work my MK business in the afternoons.
I would advise someone thinking about signing up, to get to know their potential Director and make sure it’s a good fit. That relationship can be critical in your growth.
