Today I rec'd a call from my director from NY....the one that has been M.I.A for some time....well her and I were talking about my progress and what I'm doing to be consistent.

Note of consistency

  1.  Night before write the 6 things to do list (done on my datebook so I see it at all times)
  2. Those 6 times have to be business related to generate money (Booking calls, appointments, etc)
  3. Hold yourself accountable the day of the list
  4. Check them off as they are being done
This has helped me to be consistent and know in advance what things need to be done in writing!  I am also preparing myself not to fail.  When you are unclear of what you need to do you find yourself wasting away your day. 

We also spoke about things like leads and referrals

Note for leads

  1. Go to local business and ask if you can put a facial boxes in their business.  Of course once we get the referrals and call we would advertise the business in which the boxes were held.  It's a win for the local business (free advertising) the customer (complimentary facial/glamour) and you (get leads and hopefully business)
  2. Call up previous customers and tell them about your promotion for qualified referrals.
  3. Go out to the playgrounds, schools and other locations where stay at home moms are (These women love to be pampered especially after being all day with their children)
  4. Contact friends or acquintances on your social media to offer your business
We also spoke about referrals from parties.  I was having a hard time with some referrals a friend gave me so I asked what was the best way to handle that and she told me if they do not answer or return your call after several attempts (3 max) then they are not interested.  Keep moving forward.

She also suggested I write up a business plan of what I want to do with my business and where I want to go with it.

Right now my goal is to reach my Red Jacket level by June 15..... I have approximately 6 weeks to do this.  Tomorrow is my day to figure out when and how I will achieve that goal :)

Well guys that's my post for the day....hope this helps you in your business or just your daily life.  Making note of things is very important so that you don't lose what you are focused on doing. Be what it may be personal or business wise.

Good luck......

If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right.

Working to get leads

Okay so one part of succeeding in this business is to get leads for facials/glamour.
Well at each party I play the " Beauty of friendship"
This is one way to get referrals/leads. Well at my last party I was able to get 10 referrals. I called them each and was unable to book a party. Now what's wrong with this picture?!?!
Either I need to change my spiel or them ppl don't understand the meaning of free LOL.
Ok I'll just say a little bit of both. One thing about making those calls I like least is when someone keeps you on the phone and doesn't say anything about you're offer and just simply hangs up. Really I would prefer you tell me no I'm not interested then just let me talk then say you don't know the person who referred you or call me back and act like a fool.
Anyway other ways to get leads is by going to the mall and asking people to participate in a company survey.Some people are nice and help and some well I'll just plead the 5th on that.
Just remember folks next time someone offers you to participate in a survey and you want to decline do so nicely :)

Working in numbers

Hope you all had a great weekend. I was pretty busy last week. Working towards my goal to have 30 facials in 30 days.
I had two cancellations and 1 party confirmed last week. So my main focus was to be ready for that class and be prepared. Well I had 4 faces to pamper and 2 of the 4 we spanish speaking only. So I had to take out my spanish 101 card lol

Granted I am of Spanish decent and I do speak spanish but my first language is English. With that being said I had to give them some Info on the products in spanish.  I let them know that my spanish wasn't 100% but with their help it will be fun!

Gracias a Dios todo salio bien! All that parpados, microexfoliacion, ojera and stuff were a tongue twister for sure but I loved every minute of it. That helps me practice my spanish :)

Ok back to the numbers game. When you work in numbers it's easier to see what your goals are and where you want to be.

If I have 10 show x 3ppl per show =30 faces
Let's say out of the 30 ppl 20 purchase $100 each
20x$100 ea person=2000 sales<br>
2000&#247;2 = 1000 profit &amp;1000 to reinvest in your inventory*

*replace the products you sold
So that my friends is an example of working in numbers. Not bad if you asked me lol

Well my friends that was a little glimpse of my week. I promise to keep my blog updated a little more.

On to the 6 most important things to do tomorrow and create my weekly plan sheet.

Have a great day.

A reflection of being thankful and grateful on this Easter Sunday.  I took the day off from my MK power hour Sunday to spend time with family and friends.

It's was beautiful sunny day and there is nothing better than playing wiffle ball with the family. It was a fun game. We had a tumbler, a cheater and a few people who tried hard to hit the ball but it didn't happen LOL. It's those little moments we tend to treasure most.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. God is good even through the storm.

Tomorrow is a day of preparation and of working on appointments.

I want to leave you with this :

Life is short, leave behind the negative people and all the negative thoughts. Take time for your family because a job can always replace you but your family cannot. LIVE LOVE LAUGH

God first, family second and career last. ~Mary Kay Ash~

Through the storm

Its been an amazing week. I was able to book a vendor event for an elementary school fair. Yesterday I had a power hour and was able to book 3 facial classes. I had several no's but kept calling.
In the back of my head I would keep hearing my director say "if you get a no keep going eventually you will get a yes" she is so right. The first 4 calls said no, got 1 yes then 2 calls didn't even answer and then 2 more yes!
Today I was able to have a friend spread the word about our new catalog. I gave her an offer she couldn't refuse! :)
As my abundance is pouring in the enemy strikes again. My daughter's car that I have been using is over heating and I had to park it. Now I am waiting for my couson to come pick me up :/
So as I'm sitting down with my son at Panera waiting for my ride I'm thinking it's time to earn the free use of the MK car like ASAP!
I might embarrass my son but I'm getting ready to ask a few ladies here to book a complementary facial. Too bad I don't have my products with me now or I'd be the Panera facial queen lol.
Well hope you all have a good friday
And Happy Easter :)

Locked out!!!

GEEEEZZZZ.....I've been trying to get into my blog for over a week and was unable to on my PC.  Finally I'm in!!!... Have so much to catch up on!!!

Okay so last time I was on here I was getting ready for Career Conference. Before the conference I was able to confirm a fundraiser for a local HS football team.  This will not only help me get leads it will also help the HS football team with their goal to raise funds for an away uniform.

Then came the big weekend of Career Conference....wow was that an eye opener or what!  There was so much to learn in those 24 hrs that it gave me the motivation to work hard to reach my goals.

I came home and started focusing on getting my visionary board, goals and booking on my calendar.
That week I was out in the malls getting leads....(talk about motivation)

Here are a few notes/quotes from the 24 pages:

Do not limit yourself to the opportunities you have in life.

Are you willing to be inconvenienced in your career? (meaning getting out of your comfort zone)

Get the clutter out of your head and out of you life!

Make a drop dead goal and have a crystal clear vision of what you going to do.

Don't let people's rescheduling change your mind. (This really hit me because the week before conference 3 of my shows cancelled)  Remember that life happens and it has nothing to do with you.

Your attitude is so important, so be real and be who you are..... remember to smile and get excited!

Bring out a weekly plan sheet and every Sunday plan your week. (Business, family and personal)
When you fill your plan sheet you can see what your plans are. 

You are in control of your own feelings so you can change that sad mood to a good mood.


One thing I love about MK is their dedication to foundations (Research for breast cancer, end domestic violence and helping the shelters.

We are now raising funds for "Team up for Women" Challenge. Text "teamup7645rt" (all together) to 80888 ** Note there will be a $5.00 charge to your cell phone bill. (Thank you in advance if you decide to )

One last thing.... remember to always pray and thank the man up above for all your blessings. Today was another amazing day.  I was able to help another school with their band class fundraiser.  What a blessing! God is good all the time....just remember to thank him.

Have a great evening!!!
