It’s been a while

A great deal has happened to our Mary Kay team in the past month.  Our long time director, Linda Jordan has stepped down and the company asked me to select a new director.  I have chosen Colleen Russell and we are now part of her Russell’s Rockin’ BIDIA’s.  I’m quite delighted that everyone gets a “do over.”  No expectations, no

Nutty in Pink

Humorous, but true.

Ouch, my legs hurt

Or – what I learned while training for a half marathon. I wrote in December about having talked with Elaina about her running.  A month later and with some gentle encouragement, I found myself last Saturday in a room full of giddy people willing to put themselves out there to walk/run/cycle/swim/hike to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma research.  It

Pirating a good thing

Recently I attended a party at the home of a friend who is also a SeaFair pirate.  It’s an annual event (with some excellent rum punch) and a lot of pirate buddies and wives.  Fun, but other than Steve C and his wife, I don’t know anyone there.  I go along as the designated driver, allowing the hubby to indulge

And more tidbits from the fall retreat! Stephanie R., the #1 director at the retreat talked about motivators.  I find it interesting that so frequently when she speaks, I’m quite sure of where I fit in, but then as she elucidates, I find myself viewing my life and career in a whole different light.

You know, sometimes people have challenges with Mary Kay’s cars.  They feel, as I did, that consultants drive only loud pink extended Cadillacs with fins.  Really, that was my mental picture.  I would not have joined because of the car program.

IT and beauty

Hubby darling is a freelance IT guy.  He has had his own company for over a decade and enjoys working for small to medium sized companies  This morning I was reading an article in TechRepublic about the myths of doing freelance work, and was struck by the last paragraph. None of the prevailing myths attracted me to freelancing. The truth is,

Burning question

I have a wonderful friend with whom I was in business years ago.  She eventually abandoned it because she said she didn’t want to miss her children growing up.  It was her heartfelt belief that if there were any challenges to time with her kids, they were moments which could never be recovered. I understand her concern.  I am a

Building Passive Income

What tasks are you doing now in your business that will bring you an income for the rest of your life? That’s a heady thought. As you go about your day selling and recruiting, you are probably focused on the immediate benefit of finding the perfect customer or consultant. But the payoff is bigger than you can imagine. Most people

Formula for success

How many years ago?  I think we’re coming up on 9.  I’ll wait till the anniversary date when the company sends me a card. I’ve been running a Soap Box Derby with my business for the last few years, coasting on work done the better part of a decade ago. It’s time to rev it up.  We’re going Formula 1
