Operation Mary Kay – Women of Valor

Soldiers’ Angels

Last year many Mary Kay consultants partnered with a non-profit charity called Soldiers’ Angels. Operation Mary Kay’s mission is to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families and to improve the lives of a growing veteran population.

This year one of the many programs Soldiers’ Angels is promoting is called “Women of Valor”. 

Women of Valor provides support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members… While the focus is often times on the wounded, ill and injured member, this team focuses solely on the female caregiver to ensure they are pampered, loved, and receive the necessary supportive materials to help them along this journey.

As our female caregivers register for the program, they are vetted to ensure eligibility and then approved for adoption. Each female caregiver will be matched with a Verified Angel on this team. The matched Angel will provide year round support to their assigned caregiver, with an emphasis on major holidays that might be major stressors for caregivers – Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, their anniversary and birthday. Our caregivers are often so busy caring for their wounded loved one that they often don’t take care of themselves.

Angels will provide packages containing wonderful items to pamper our caregivers, but will also be providing educational and other materials provided to the volunteers by Soldiers’ Angels. Educational materials are selected by experts in the field. The Women of Valor team is led by two inspirational women who both have PhDs in related fields and a military background.

QT Office is promoting this special program on our Seasonal Selling center because we are passionate about having an effective way for you to spread the word of Operation Mary Kay and to help raise awareness and support.We believe these women should be pampered and taken care of for all of the generous help they give our soldiers.

The donation sheet has an editable text box so it is easy for anyone to enter their information to help bring comfort and ease to the female caregivers. The information sheet is for your consultants to help them better understand how Operation Mary Kay Works and how they can help donate products to the female care givers.

Mary Kay® Class Invite Tool: 60 Guests in 6 Minutes

We created this great flyer to help your hostess brainstorm guests to invite to her class.   Of course, all 60 will not be able to make it, but over-inviting is a great way to ensure a good turn out. Plus, she can take outside orders for all those who will not be able to make it.  Many hostess plans give her an added benefit for having outside sales or it may give her more party sales which can equal greater rewards.  Always make sure there is something in it for her, and that she completely understands her hostess rewards.

60 Guests in 6 Minutes

The 60 Guests in 6 Minutes is also a great Mary Kay® class invite tool to add to new consultant packages to help your new team member quickly realize how many people she knows and can share her new business with.

We have added it to our Unit Websites in our Training Center under “Coaching” because it is a great item to add to your hostess packets, and getting a hostess packet to anyone hosting a party for you is a great step in coaching your classes.

Coaching your classes help the chances of your party succeeding as well as better attendance which will turn into better sales.  It tells your hostess what she can expect and get her excited about all the items she can earn from your hostess plan.

To learn more about hostess coaching and get great flyers like this visit one of our QT Office Unit Websites and check out our Training Center.  

Mary Kay® Silent Hostess Flyer

When you encounter someone who feels they are just too busy to have a class for you a great option is to offer them the chance to earn a silent hostess reward. QT Office has created a new and trendy Mary Kay® Silent Hostess Flyer for you to explain the benefits of being a silent hostess.

Silent Hostess Flyer

How to:

Show The Look book to friends and family and take orders with an order form. Make sure the purchasing person fills out the contact information for proper customer service and delivery.

Invite friends and family to shop on your Mary Kay® personal website. To know who to give hostess credit to make sure they enter the hostess name in the comments section.

Adding samples that your silent hostess can pass around can help to boost sales and give her a fun conversation starter. Along with this flyer you will want to be sure to include a few order forms. You could even add a few copies of The Look book to help her create excitement.

You can find this flyer and other great training material in our Unit Website Training Center in the Booking category. Mary Kay Ash always said “if you’re out of bookings you’re out of business”.

Mary Kay® Model Gift Certificate

QT Office has created this fabulous Mary Kay® model gift certificate for you to give to potential guests. It offers them $10 in free product for helping you build your professional portfolio. We have an editable text box where you can add your personal information; this keeps it professional and sharp. Hand writing on customer’s handouts just doesn’t look as sharp. We will be adding this to our Unit Websites Training Center in the Invite category.

National Sales Director Auri Hatheway said, “The more times you write in your date book is equivalent to writing inside your checkbook.” Mary Kay Ash always said “If you’re out of booking, you’re out of business.”

Booking sets the pace of everything else in your business. Before you sell you have to book it. In order to coach an appointment you have to book it. When you think about it every new team member you add probably came from a booking. She was either a guest at a unit meeting or event or you met her at a skin care class or facial. One way or another, before you can add her to your team you had to book her.

That is why we are so passionate about this category in our Training Center; nothing happens in your business until you book something.

According to the American Research Group “shoppers around the country say they are planning to spend an average of $854 for gifts this holiday season, up from $646 last year” according to their twenty-seventh annual survey on holiday spending.

As a Mary Kay beauty consultant you could fill many of these gift giving needs. I know shopping for gifts for others is one of my favorite things that I get to do during the holidays. I love buying gifts, and it’s a good thing because I do the purchasing for my entire family and my husband’s and my employees. You will have many women like this in your customer base and meet many more between now and Christmas.

Start talking about it now at all of your appointments. Hold up your gift sets and make recommendations on why this would be great for certain people in their life. For example you could show the new Mary Kay At Play products and remind them this would be great for your daughter and for her to give as a gift to her friends.

Just think if from now until Christmas everyone you normally sell to purchased just one Christmas gift from you how much your sales would increase. Maybe enough to pay for you Christmas gifts to your family and friends!

Fun Mary Kay® Flyer for Fall and Halloween Bookings

Is it time to check in with your customers for their fall skin care needs? Our skin care needs change due to the weather. When it’s cold outside, and often times windy, we come inside to dry heat.

By asking the right questions you will know if your customers need a seasonal product change-up. A few great examples of questions to ask would be:

  • Does your skin feel tight? – One sign that your skin needs more moisture is that feeling of tightness. If you have a customer telling you her skin feels that is one way you know her moisturizer needs adjusting.
  • Do you have any flakiness? – This would be in more extreme cases and would be a definite way to know your skin is thirsting for moisture.

Another huge added benefit of moisture is it minimizes the look of fine lines; the dry winter skin makes them more noticeable.

Robert Jones, celebrity make-up artist and author, says “one of the most important things is making the skin as supple as possible so moisturize, moisturize, moisturize”. Robert also feels that uneven skin tone is the most aging thing on women, even more than wrinkles, so now would be a great time to check out their foundation and powder.

A new appointment for a full facial may be necessary or just a quick meeting to rematch foundation. You could also suggest the new Translucent Powder to meet your customer’s needs all year, and never mismatch their skin due to the changing of the seasons.

This is a fun flyer with an editable text box for you to fill in your information. We never want to hand write anything on our material that we give to customers; it gives an unprofessional look. We made it three to a sheet to make it affordable if you wanted to print full color.

Is something holding you back? Don’t put off finding out what it is!

Brandon Barber Coaching GroupI was first introduced to the Brandon Barber Coaching Group through my good friend Donna Lindsey of MK Virtual Office. She had been coached by Brandon and was very pleased with the results. School is never out for the pros, and I feel it is so important to always fill our minds with powerful training—so I decided to participate in a conference call. During the call Brandon kept referring to the “assessment,” a tool that he used to “uncover the subconscious sabotage that holds you back, slows you down and gets you stuck.” I had not taken mine yet, but I could still follow the call and benefit from it. It was great. I learned a lot and it was definitely worth my time.

But after I got off the call, I didn’t take the assessment. I was busy, I was doing well in business, and I really did not have time to take this assessment. To be brutally honest, I thought my assessment might be bad and I didn’t want Brandon and his team to see my results.

Looking back on it now, it really was quite crazy. I had time for the hour call but not 15 minutes for the assessment? Brandon and his team even offered a free debrief! They were willing to take the time to call me and go over my results. Despite Donna’s recommendation, I just did not do it.

Months later I got to meet Brandon and one of his coaches, Joe, at Leadership. They were in the vender’s room with Brice (my business partner and husband) and my friend Donna from MK Virtual Office. I talked with Donna more in-depth about her coaching and got to speak with Brandon as well. I was also able to see how he interacted with all the National and Sales Directors he had been working with.

My curiosity was sparked (again). I was finally ready to do this whole assessment thing. When I got back to my room, I sat down at my computer, went to Brandon’s coaching website, and clicked “take the free assessment.” I looked at the screen, but it had been a long day, and I didn’t feel like thinking about it. I told myself I will do it later.

I share this with you because we all do things like this from time to time. Put the simplest of things off, planning to do it later. It’s embarrassing really, but true.

Leadership was winding down and we only had one more day left. On the last night I finally completed the assessment. It was so short and so fast (15 minutes max) that I could not believe this is what I was putting off!

I got my report right away. It was easy enough to read and it told me a lot about myself. It was very interesting. The next day Brandon was kind enough to go over my assessment with me, and Joe did the same with Brice. It was fascinating to say the least. It really blew my mind just how much he knew about me. I didn’t tell him the information; a lot of things he just knew. It really felt like talking to a psychic. I don’t say that to be funny. It is really what it felt like to me.

The insights Brandon and Joe were able to give to us have been so helpful. As Oprah would say, the assessment was full of many “Ah Ha” moments. I have been able to make several changes in my everyday life that have been great. I was more interested in talking to Brandon about my personal life and finding “Joy in the Journey”, as Brandon would say, than talking about my business, but it is all connected, and I have seen huge improvements in both.

So for those of you interested in taking the assessment for yourself (it’s free) and having a 1:1 debrief (it’s free, too) go to www.brandonbarbercoaching.com. If you have any questions they have a great customer service team. Contact them at (801) 953-0610 or support@brandonbarbercoaching.com

Is it time to spruce up your Mary Kay® new consultant packet?

As we all know the success of a new consultant in her first few weeks can make or break her decision to stay with Mary Kay®. That’s why it’s important from time to time to ask yourself if your new consultant packet and your new consultant page on your unit website are providing what your new consultant needs.

  • Is it as sharp as the sharpest woman I want in my unit or area?
  • Does it have the most important first steps that will get her business off to a great start?
  • Does it have any unnecessary material that I should remove or add to other training for later?

There is no time like the present to take a look at the first steps you have provided. Many of you share the program created by Mary Kay Ash herself, Pearls of Sharing. Our graphic designers here at QT Office created a new and trendy printable flyer that can be added to your packet or website.

Pearls of Sharing, Mary Kay

It coordinates with the rest of our series we created for you! Pick and choose any or all of the flyers that work for you. You can find the rest of the flyers we created by visiting our blog posts below.
