Orders and turn around time


With my previous fun post I was also thinking it may be worth mentioning that any consultant that "needs" product will get it much faster if it is ordered today than waiting until July 1, simply because a very large percentage of monthly production comes in at the end of the month (I think that is called "procratination")

However, if the year is over - putting in an order just to put in an order for no reason, isn't in my opinion a good move. July 1st is the first day of a new seminar year so, why not start the year with a bang?? Be smart with your business and be smart with you..

Withthe Holiday weekend approaching be safe and have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Don't forget your sunscreen, enjoy your food and friends, don't drink and drive, and post of all have FUN!!


Well folks!! Do you know what today is?? As some will have you to believe, it is the worst day of the year. If I may be sarcastic for a minute - every mk director is imprisoned, with the ball and chain to the phone and computer. I am sure many of you have heard this (now, I am not saying there aren't some months that might be the case, but not every month but the last day of the month and the last day of the year?? Well ... hmmm..

Things to do today, pool party/birthday party for grandson and daughter. Making lasagna for a dinner party tonight, packing to get away for the weekend, and oh, yes, filling a few orders that came in on voicemail and online ordering.

Afternoon spent shopping with daughters, and after desert, movie night with wine and cheese and company. I will check intouch later just in case anyone submitted an order for me to submit because I would hate for them to wait for their order any longer than they would have to since my consultants order product when they NEED they product.

Tomorrow... working on tan by pool... vacation, fun, food, family, fireworks, water/boating... awwww.... I LOVE MY LIFE!!!!

Revisited: Fake Online Orders!


There is an original article on this topic dated: Saturday, February 20, 2010 Titled, Online Orders. We have had alot of activity lately under the comments so I wanted to bring this topic front page again. (Many of you know I hate "reruns" but this is more like a part 2.

Originally when the phony online orders were being place they were very large orders and payment terms were with money orders, cashier's checks, and were larger than the amount of the order and the consultant was instructed to keep the "extra". Now, the theives are getting more clever. The orders are reasonable and the form of payment is "secure online" payment via a credit card by way of your Mary Kay Website. Many consultant's feel secure because the card can be processed before the product is shipped - wrong!! The credit card has been stolen and eventually the consultant can be liable to repay and charges that were incurred on that card after it was stolen, of course with no recourse regaining the product.

I have heard consultants asking why the company doesn't "stake" out the addresses that these packages are being sent to because now it is an address in the States as oppossed to out of the country, but my guess is there is an address forward so it isn't being delivered to the address shown anyway and I am sure the PO Boxes change very frequently as well as the change of addresses.

I also feel that it isn't Mary Kay, the Company or the consultants being targeted but an easy way via the website to target a large volume of potential victims... if you send enough emails, you will always have some take the bait. I believe that any direct sale company probably is dealing with the same issues.

One thing I would like to point out, most of my serious new online customers, register on my website and for my newsletter, etc.... it isn't just the one online order. And certainly, if the order isn't local, why would they even bother dealing with someone so far away from them, let's be smart consultants!! If it looks to good to be true it probably is!

Weekend Humor!!


Walked into the garage and noticed a sign he had tacked to his wall. Scratched my head because I knew we were not in the market for any type of finances until I read it a second time and burst out in laughter. Pretty funny. Thought I would share and tell everyone to have a great weekend and a Very Happy Father's Day!!

What's "in" for the Summer??

I already gave my opinion on the mascara, a big thumbs up. I also like the dual end eye shadow/liner, goes on great, stays well. The eyelash curl has made a big hit with my clients. Love the light fresh scent of the Tranquil Waters Shower Gel and Perfume stick. The limited edition colors in the tinted lip balm, fill a much need whole in the color selection (hopefully, the better sellers will be added to the line as permanent colors. ( My favorite is cherry).

Glad to see the eye color bundles back because it really does help a newer consultant or one that is no confident with color provide a look for their client that will look good but is easy and ready to go. Enjoy and share the new fun summer products with your clients.

If you would like to see the products, just stop by and check them out!!

My opinion is in on our newest mascara!!


Love lashes and your product sales with this new mascara that defines, defends and delivers 4 times the volume. Lashes appear fuller, lifted and multiplied, while looking naturally flawless, soft and healthy. $15 each

I love, love, love it, it is available in black or brown. The brush separates your lashes so nicely. I have always loved the ultimate, but I think I have a new fav.
