A little about Mary Kay


Thanksgiving. What a glorious time of the year! It's a time to step back and take stock of how truly blessed we are. It's a time to come together around the table to enjoy good food, friends and family from near and far. Thanksgiving also is a time when we pause to remember with special fondness our Founder, Mary Kay Ash.

Of all of the holidays throughout the year, Thanksgiving was Mary Kay's favorite. She especially enjoyed preparing the Thanksgiving meal and spending meaningful time with her family. We believe it's no coincidence that Mary Kay passed away on Thanksgiving Day in 2001. What a special day to enter the gates of Heaven!

There are so many qualities that we admire about this amazing woman. But one which stands out among others was her joy in giving. There could not be a more appropriate time than now to honor Mary Kay's legacy with a tribute gift to The Mary Kay FoundationSM whose mission is to eliminate cancer and to end the epidemic of violence against women.

If you would like to join us in a special tribute to honor Mary Kay and her legacy, please click here or visit the Mary Kay Ash tribute page at

On behalf of The Mary Kay FoundationSM, may God bless you and yours this holiday season.

Warmest wishes,
Michael Lunceford
President, The Mary Kay Foundation

A Veteran's Story


This is a true story from someone I know and as I read it and the tears streamed down my face, I just had to pass it on. We often get so hung up on little things, that often important things slip by. This is not about MK - it is just about life. I hope it moves you as much as it moved me. Personally, I have one son in Afghastan now and one on the way.

and.. thank you to all our service men and woman who risk their lives every day to insure ours. God Bless you and your family.

I had a opportunity about 2 months ago to welcome back a young marine who stepped on a IED in Afghanistan. He was from Jacksonville Florida. His father picked him up from Walter Reed hospital and drove him back to his home in Jacksonville. He lost his left leg above the knee, his right leg, and his left arm. His name was Tyler Southern.

I heard about his return through the local media. As a former military veteran I felt the need to welcome this young man home. There were about 700 to 1000 motorcycles present at the Ga/ FL welcome center. Everyone at the welcome home event waved an American Flag. I had a new U.S.S FLORIDA hat that I bought from the ships store of the U.S.S Florida while it we being repaired at our repair facility here at Kings Bay Naval Base. I took off a few hours from work that day and drove to the GA/FL welcome center. It was quite a site to see. Old glory was everywhere..

His father pulled into the welcome center with Tyler. He had his wheel chair in the back of the truck. He stopped right in front of me. His windows were tinted very dark. Tyler rolled down his window and had had the biggest smile on his face. I handed him the hat from the submarine U.S.S. Florida and a small American Flag. He gave me hug saying " Thank you", I replied "no thank you for your service and god bless you" . He replied "I have one good arm for hugging ", he then gave me another hug with his one remaining limb. If anyone is fortunate to experience something like this we need to realize what our veterans really do for us.

As a veteran of our armed forces I felt it my privilege and duty to welcome home this young man who so proudly served his country. He and his family will have a tough road ahead. With all our thoughts and prayers I hope he and all have been injured will be blessed.

GOD BLESS all our Vets and Military

Interesting - Allison Lamar & Bellamora


I must admit this is pretty interesting, I guess either her vision to be a motivational speaker didn't work quite as well as she hoped or this was in the works before she left Mary Kay and that was her reason for leaving because the money must have been very attractive. Allison's title with the Company is Corporate Trainer - interestingly enough... the Company's Values & Principles sound like she just was repeating from her Mary Kay time..

From what I have looked at so far, it is a new direct sale, mlm stye skin care company but it is not cheap. and it's headquarters are in Tampa, Florida

It's November & Christmas is Coming!!


Where does the time go? It feels like we just started 2010 and here we are in November already. So.... do we have to "adjust" the way we do things this time of year? My answer is "yes". Actually if you wait too much longer, you probably find yourself not doing much Mary Kay over the holidays. Not only can we have great Holiday Open Houses, but we can be booking for Holiday Party Glamour and even booking out past the new year with a "New Look for a New Year". But if you wait until mid December, it will tougher to get the bookings.

If you are out of leads, in our area from October thru Christmas, all over there are Holiday Craft Fairs. These events very reasonably priced so it is a great place to set up a Mary Kay table and do a drawing where people can register for a complimentary skin care presentation and color appointment. When doing these events, beside a display of our products, I also put together a few gift ideas for display only (we can not sell our products at this type of event, but we can take orders if someone does not have a consultant or book them for an appointment or follow up at a later date.

It might be hard to tell how well you did at any of these events until you follow up. Two weeks ago, I did a Holiday Home Party Business Expo. The event cost me $25 for my spot and was only 4 hours long. The event coordinator had not advertised heavily enough and there were several other events going on the same day so turnout was extremely low. I only ended up with three leads, I am sure many may have been extremely disappointed with only 3 leads but.........
of the three I have held appointments with two of them and both first sales were over $100 and both started on the skin care and plan on staying with it, and one introduced me to her husband and handed him my card and told him since he never knew what to get her for Christmas, to just give me a call because I had a "VERY LONG"
Wish List and 2 days later called and ordered several more pieces that we had ried at her appointmetn). So for a few hours (and fun with the other vendors) I would say that it was certainly worth my time. And every time my new clients reorder, I will continue to be "paid" for my time.

So share with your clients how you can assist them in their holiday shopping and you can help make sure she gets items off her wish list items, and you can offer to make sure that everyone has a great look for any Holiday parties that they may be attending, and get those "New Year, New Look NEW Year" appointments on the books!!

More to come on getting thru this time of the year but hopefully this has given you a few ideas to run with!!

Stay tuned!!
