Big welcomes to Richard Guest, Steve’s son, as our newest Independent Beauty Consultant.  Richard has been a customer for many years after I began shaming him for not using Satin Lips. Richard’s first class will be Monday, 6:30 at my house.  Feel free to come and bring a guest!          

Resurfacing the bathroom sink

We’re having company on Tuesday.  It’s someone I’ve never met and 2 of his friends.  They’re coming for 5 days to stay with us on their way from England to a music festival in California.  I suppose it’s a sign of the Internet times that a Facebook friend becomes a houseguest with relative ease. When I say relative ease, I

Keeping it together

Cheryl Davidson, NSD Emeritus is a great teacher.  She has a keen sense of what it means to lead and mentor her area.  Many times I hear her words floating into my coaching. Linda asked me to speak on the weekly unit call about how to get everyone moving in the same direction and it is Cheryl’s wisdom which forms

Go-Give retreat tidbits

SNSD Mary Diem paid a visit to the NW, looking younger than ever. I want to be like her when I grow up.  She anchored a superb day of training, laughing, hanging out and pantyhose.  I’d complain about the pantyhose, but she told us: Don’t complain.  When you complain, 50% of the people don’t care and 50% think you deserve

The day which works?

Team members – what day works best for you, if you were able to come to Parts of the Party?  Don’t forget to vote by replying to the email that went out earlier today! It also occurs to me there might be a better name for the get together??  Open to suggestions!

Rosacea and sensitive skin

Parts of the party on Wednesday the 29th – we’ll be working with your customers with sensitive skin.  These can include customers who would like to use Mary Kay products, but have had ‘reactions’ before, people with rosacea (if you don’t know what it is, come, because you’ll bump into it a lot) and those for whom anything more than

Follow up

This is the training I gave at the Success Center.  For a printed copy, it is under “Resources” on the main site. The biggest reason to follow-up with someone, whether a new contact, or a new customer is the sign Mary Kay taught consultants to picture around everyone’s neck, “Make me feel important.”  The respect you show someone with your

Break it down

Good Housekeeping Tip: Always keep several get well cards on the mantel.  If unexpected guests arrive, they will think you’ve been sick and unable to clean. Hm, good advice, I suppose, but here’s a better plan, at least for me.  Combine keeping my house clean with the ability to do some intensive “each part of the party” training! Consultants, find

Painting the canvas

One of the best pieces of product knowledge from Career Conference was how to use the Liquid Foundation Brush.  When mine first arrived, I put dots of foundation all over my face, like I would normally, then used the brush to blend them all together.  The result was a reminder of having discovered in my college Art 101 class, that I was

Career Conference

I’ve had my latte.  It came late, after 4:30pm, and it was my first caffeine of the day.  Regardless, I was kept awake all day by the enthusiasm exploding in the Tacoma Trade and Convention Center by the ladies who love pink. Highlights?  Michelle Sudeth.  This was her first visit to a Seattle Career Conference and her speech had elements of
