SCINTILLATING SUPERSTARS SUPERSTARS Dear Scintillating Superstars, “You’re the Key!” The 2009 winners of this 5th Hunt for Pink September are the key! The Hunters posed on white flagstone steps, holding their pink “key” flanked by our two guests, NSD Glinda McGuire and two time Million Dollar director Kristin Myers. They were treated to a spectacular sunny day and a Cash Cab experience. When Glinda and I pulled up to a pink Cadillac whose riders had been dumped out alongside the road, we were asked what it would cost for a ride to my house. $5000 was the price. Clutching their HUNT BUCKS in their hands, they said, “We’ll walk!” and off they went in their high heels. I’m still chuckling at the picture. I know they were very pleased they saved their bucks when they realized they could “BUY” lunch with our guests. Once again, the day started with laughter and camaraderie as consultants from different units got to know each other. What happened next is a tribute to our guests who gave us a paradigm shift in our thinking about having parties on purpose because “Parties with a Purpose” can make a significant difference in how this year plays out. It’s tweaking words, it’s learning new skills at the close, it’s being more confident in booking Career Talks as well as Parties.
August 2009 Results
Vol. XIX No. 12
It’s going to take 10 Parties and 20 Career Talks a month. You’re only 16 parties away from DIQ…right? It’s going to take intentional activity. It’s going to take passionate commitment. It’s going to take unquenchable belief. I know that if you were there, you looked at the difference between a consultant check and a director check, and some of you were amazed. You wrote down how to calculate a director’s income, and you were enlightened. Some of you went home and picked up the phone and said I’m calling till I book 10 parties for September. And some of you are hoping you’re going to find a “chicken lady” at one of those parties who will lead you to a director. Whatever your role, whatever your passion, whatever your level of commitment, you are needed and appreciated. And did I ever mention that I love events? Did I ever share that I believe events move people forward? Did I ever suggest that when I announce the next challenge, you do whatever it takes to be there? September’s Growth Groups will get you primed for October’s challenge for Mon Ami Gabi. Prepare yourself!

THIS MONTHâ€™S ISSUE OF:
IF SHE CAN, I CAN! Each month I will feature a different Future Martin Area Director in our newsletter.
Director Name: Meg Arneson Former Occupation: Still Own and Operate my own Preschool City/State: Sheridan, IL Joined Mary Kay: December 1995 Debuted as a Director: July 1, 2009 # of months driving free: 4 months Highest commission check in one month: $1900 What was the sequence of events that brought you into the company (recruiting layering process)? I joined MK to get my product at cost. Everyone in my family was using the
product and it made sense for someone to join so that we would save some money. To my surprise MK got into my heart and the rest is history. Why did you join? I was looking for something for me. I knew that I would be good at
this and that it was a great way to meet new people. Why did you want to be a director? ? I wanted to share my skills with others. I know
that I have a lot to offer and teach other women. I wanted to be like all of the directors that I was around and I wanted to receive their pay. Has there been a dark season in your Mary Kay career? If so, how did you come through it?
Oh yes. I was a director in 2000. I chose to step down because of my lack of leadership and drive. It was very difficult to be a consultant when I knew that I had trained many of the new directors that had moved up. My belief in the product and the company kept me involved. I had always promised Jeanie Iâ€™d come back to help finish her National Area and I kept my word.
What is the one thing that was difficult for you or you were afraid of in this business? I
was afraid that I would fail again at being a good leader. I was also afraid that I would not be accepted by all of the other directors. I worried what theyâ€™d think of me. I didnâ€™t need to feel that way. During what time period did you have the greatest growth of income and what was the growth? My greatest growth was during DIQ. I saw myself changing in how I ran
my business and that was changing the way my consultants worked in their businesses. My check went from $600 to over $800. Now that I am a director I know that will grow to almost $2000. How fun is that. What do you attribute the growth? I attribute my consistency in doing faces and my drive to talk to everyone about this amazing opportunity. I also know that my extra office help and support at home had a great deal to do with it also. What advice would you give a consultant that wants to be a Director? Be true to yourself. DO not compare yourself to others and consistently do faces and interviews. Always ask your director for advice. She has been in your shoes and can help you the best.

My Dream Corner… I’m dreaming of how it will feel Friday night at Retreat when we go to the stage for our Future Martin Area picture. I’m dreaming that we are going to get a gasp and a WOW from the audience as they realize how many black sweatshirts are in the room. Don’t forget to wear black pants and the black sweatshirt with the heels on wheels!
