You know how it feels to be stuck in a rut. You’re doing the same activities over and over, and you’re not happy. Maybe you feel bored with your life or burnt out on the job. Perhaps you know what would make you happy, such as a new job position or increased responsibility at work, but making that goal a reality seems insurmountable and not even worth trying. So you stay in the same situation you’re currently in, hoping that someday something will change, but it never does. Face it … you’re in a rut! Being stuck in a rut is never fun. Aside from being bored with your situation, being in a rut also makes you more prone to depression and negative thinking-the two things that will keep you in your rut for even longer. So if you want your situation to change, you must change. Instead of complaining that there’s nothing you can do to make your life better, realize that there’s actually a lot you can do. You just have to get out there, take a risk, and do something. When you are not making any progress toward a particular goal and feel completely stuck, the key to making a big change is to make little changes. Use the following six guidelines to jumpstart your life out of a rut right now. (more…)

As long as you are going to go about your day thinking anyway, you may as well “think big”. Anyone can think small, and most people do. In fact, most people keep themselves in the same place in life, doing the exact same thing, without significant growth or change because of limited or conditioned thinking.
It is probably true that many of your current and future clients are living in that place right now. Who better to support them than you? The coach who is thinking big.

This should be a great topic!! Here is my view…
Your Director is supposed to:
- Be the best Independent Beauty Consultant in her unit
- Provide an avenue of training and skill building for her consultants (some do weekly in person meetings, some do telephone training, some do one-on-one coaching, this comes in a variety of forms)
- Keep you up to date on unit & company changes
- Keep you up to date on deadlines and important dates
- Keep you up to date on your status (active, inactive, about to lose team, about to lose discount, etc.)
- Be your biggest cheer leader & fan
- Be your coach

Ok… so you had a change of heart, you went through a divorce, you hated your Director… whatever the reason, you sent your product back to the Company… but… then… one day you had this thought… “maybe I should not have closed that door forever… or did I?”
Let’s talk about it. Hey, first off, let me say that we are NOT judging people who sent their product back. Many people do and they love that day, it is a great day for them. That is GREAT! For others they regret it, we are not gonna judge you either. Life happens and we make choices at the time as best we can with the information we have. All that being said…. here is what I know: (more…)

Let’s talk Husbands! Maybe with this thread we can work backwards? Talk about all the great things MK Husbands do and fill in the blanks if we find any.
Let me say that I have seen people work this business with the support of their spouse and I have seen people work this business constantly fighting their spouse’s negativity. It is hard to do anything when the person you love is fighting against it with negative words, actions, put downs, etc. I will also say that when this is in a situation, the Mary Kay business is not usually the ONLY area a negative person will have a problem with. Sometimes Mary Kay provides nothing more than a positive outreach and positive confidence building experience for such a person and sometimes Mary Kay represents a way out of their current situation. Again, Mary Kay being there in so many different ways for various people. Ah, but I digrees… sort of…
Here is what I personally think the husbands role is and what I think my husband does GREAT at and the one thing I wish he did better (and yes… he knows it…). I can’t wait to hear your thoughts and feedback on this too!! (more…)
