Tangible Goals are Attainable Goals

MK Rules has graciously given me the opportunity to keep this blog alive by adding me on as a guest blogger. This post comes a little late, but as we are close to beginning a new month, I think it fits. Recently, I had an epiphany in my business. The results I want and the results I have been getting are two very different things. I think I’ve figured something out that is very important to goal setting. Goal setting was always difficult for me. I think it was because the way I’ve been told to set goals seemed intangible. My director would say, make a Retail Sales goal, a Wholesale Ordering goal, a New Faces goal, etc. Now, I could easly say I want to sell $1200 retail this month and as a result, I want to order $600 wholesale. The problem I was having was I didn’t know how to go about achieving this goal. What was I going to sell? Who would I sell it to? I just had a mental block that wasn’t connecting the dots. Well, the dots have been connected! 🙂 Continue reading

Enriching Women’s Lives

Here is my take on how MK does indeed “enrich women’s lives”…

From a customer’s point of view:

1. She not only gets great products, she can earn free ones!
2. We show application techniques BEFORE you purchase anything, and still offer the 100% satisfaction guarantee.
3. We give her personal service with a smile. 🙂
4. We may be the only ones to take so much time to help her understand how she can look her best. Continue reading

Inventory: Are you getting fast food or cooking at home?

Having no inventory is like having no groceries at home. So when hubby and the kiddos get hungry, you run to McDonald’s for fast food. A great fix for now, but too costly in the long run. Continue reading

Here are some sites about cosmetics and beauty as a whole. I think it is important to keep up with trends overall, as well as those MKC suggests. Knowing what looks are currently popular will help you sell our looks or create your own for your customers.

Directors Need Love, Too…

Hey ladies! It is the season for giving! Please take some time this week to thank your director for all she has done for you over the past year. Even directors need a pat on the back once in a while.

Sending a nice card, an encouraging e-mail, or leaving a sweet voice mail can really mean a lot.

Pillow Gifts

This idea and story comes from my director who shall remain anonymous…

Can you picture this scenario? It’s Christmas Day, late at night. You are a mom who stayed up late on Christmas eve wrapping gifts, playing Santa, and even nibbling on the cookies (which you made!) that you left for “Santa”/yourself!!

Today, Christmas Day, you have cooked, cleaned, picked up toys, the kids were all hyped up on stocking candy…the list is endless. Holidays are so fun, but there is so much work involved at times, too. *Sigh*
You decide what you need is a nice hot shower or bath, so you head off to take one.

Little do you know, your hubby has gotten you one last little something special (from MK of course!) and left it on your pillow as a “Thank you” for all your hard work over the last few days! Continue reading
