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.

Your MK Fire

Sometimes the desire to work your business can be like a roaring forest fire…you can’t wait to share MK with everyone you touch. At times, someone can put your fire out with harsh words or criticism. But then, what do you know…along comes a good Samaritan with kind words who believes in you, and your fire has been lit again! Continue reading

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

Stockings for Soldiers!

Ladies, last night I was reading Shades of Pink’s blog post about Veteran’s Day. Someone (The Myst?) mentioned you can adopt soldiers on Anysoldier.com. So I went to check it out…

Soooo many of the soldiers in Iraq requested Christmas items and personal hygiene items such as shaving cream, suncreen, and lip balm, as well as some snack type items. I have a soft spot in my heart for the soldiers who do not recieve packages while on a tour of duty, not just at Christmas, but especially during that time. My husband was stationed there for a year and the only things he recieved were from me personally, a few letters from his grandma, and a lady who had adopted him. None of his other family members even sent a letter.

So I have a plan that I am already spreading the word about at my work: Stockings for Soldiers! Stuffed with MK shaving cream, suncreen, and lipbalm! Continue reading

Holiday Glamour Portfolio


Holidays got you down? Is everyone claiming they are “too busy” to book? Do you not celebrate Christmas and therefore feel like the world is stopping for no reason and your business is suffering? Do you celebrate Christmas, but still dislike the excuses?

Try starting a Holiday Portfolio of before and after pics!

This will allow you to still focus on getting faces and bookings. You could even offer a free holiday or winter themed frame with the after pic to those who hold the party on the original date and time, and who have a certain number of guests at the party (I would say 5 for the gift). Turn that frown upside down!
