The Big Pink Push

                                                     Photo Courtesy of CBS 11 News

The iconic Pink Cadillac that Mary Kay awards their sales directors is the ultimate symbol of success. Mary Kay offers american-made cars: Cadillac-SRX, Cadillac-CTS, Chevy Equinox, Toyota Camry, Chevy Cruze, and a Ford Mustang, as a reward for different levels of sales volume and team building. But how did this come about? Mary Kay began providing pink cars as incentive to their top independent Sales Directors in 1969. The car’s unique hue was chosen to reflect Mary Kay’s palette colors. The bright pink colored cars were replaced with a more pearlized tone in 1998. In September, 100 pink Cadillacs assembled near the Dallas headquarters to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mary Kay Inc.

Many new consultants ask themselves, “How do I achieve this iconic car?” For directors, they must sell *$48,000 in a quarter then continue to earn a total *$96,000 for two consecutive quarters. This qualifies the director to either accept a cash reward or a 2 year lease of the pink car. A director must also maintain this level of sales to keep their Cadillac.

Are you on your way to achieving a pink Cadillac? Many of UnitWise users have achieved the Pink Cadillac status (some, many times over). So, how did they achieve this goal? We interviewed Cleta Colson, Future Executive Senior Sales Director, who gave future Cadillac owners some great advice:

UW: Why did you begin to sell for Mary Kay?
CC:  I signed up right after college to make an extra $50 a month.  I had no idea how much I would enjoy my new business and how fun and easy it would be to make money.  After my first week in sales of $400 and making more than my 40 hour week job paycheck in only 3 parties, I was hooked for life!!!

UW: For how long have you been with MK?
CC: I have been in for 28 years and a Sales Director for almost 25 years.

UW: When did you receive your first pink Cadillac?
CC: I won my first Cadillac in 1992, my goal was to win one before I was 30 years old.  I made it with one month to spare!

UW: How did you achieve the required sales requirement?
CC: I set a goal for the car and actually did a huge Goal poster shared with another Director in the shape of a pink car with refrigerator boxes.  Above it we wrote THE BIG PINK PUSH. We both tracked our production each month moving a car along a track that went from the front of the car to the back.  It was fun going for it together! She (Debra Bishop) and I held ourselves accountable by keeping each other encouraged.  Working with my unit was so exciting as we got closer and closer. We did start out with Cadillac production ($16,000 wholesale) most people don't.  You work up to it and increase monthly.  I personally recruited 6 qualified to help with the bonus $600 you get for each and made sure I brought guests to my own meetings and helped my consultants move up! We debuted a Sales Director at the same time who won her first car... And that girl was my sister!!  Exciting times for sure.  The victory was sweet as Debra and I picked up our first Cadillacs and both of our offspring picked up their first car the same day!! It's worth the PINK push!!!  Now after 10 Pink Cadillacs I can't think of driving anything else.

UW: What advice would you give to new consultants?
CC: To not wait to be great! Find those first 3 power partners (team members) your first week!  It's more fun to do it with a friend! Also to do your Power Start- 30 faces in 30 days- to allow yourself time to get your skills down. DIQ DIQ Do It Quick!!!!  Also, take advantage of your Sales Director and her skills by learning and listening to her advice. Bring friends with you to every event and let your director and sister consultants help you build your team!  Never give up and keep a positive attitude no matter what!!  Welcome to a company who's main goal is to help YOU be successful!! You can do it!

Managing your Unit WAS information

It is so exciting to have a team of determined women working with you toward a common goal, but how do you know when you team is on track? UnitWise offers you the tools to manage your Weekly Accomplishments Sheet (WAS) and keep your unit on the right track.

First of all make sure that your account is linked to Intouch, by going to Settings>Preferences>MK Credentials.

When you link your Intouch account to UnitWise you can schedule the basic Intouch WAS reports, such as Unit Anniversaries and Birthdays, Circle of Achievements, Unit Production details etc. Once Scheduled your Intouch WAS reports will be imported directly into your UnitWise account Nightly or Weekly (Depending on the Report).

These reports can be exported to Excel or Printed as needed.

UnitWise Director Complete Package offers anytime Sync so you can update your consultant’s WAS info whenever you wish. This eliminates the need of having your busy consultants enter their WAS on Intouch by Saturday Night.

You can also view your entire Unit activity by clicking the Quick Glance option. Quick Glance allows you to easily find your top performers for the week.

You have the ability to export your WAS information as an Excel, PDF or CSV file to create other reports and spreadsheets such as Monthly and Yearly totals.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, the extensive array of holiday delights can cause post-holiday remorse. By implementing a few simple tips you can stay healthy through the holiday season.

Tip #1. Eat a balanced breakfast, instead of skipping your morning meal to save room for dinner. You may end up overeating in the late afternoon and your energy level will also be very low if you skip meals. 

Tip #2. Don't worry about losing weight. Just focus on maintaining your current weight until January. With all the rich homemade food and seasonal candy it is common to overindulge. Dieting in this environment can lead to misery. So forgive yourself for that extra cookie, and spread some holiday cheer.        
Tip #3. You will eat a lot less if you use a smaller plate. Avoid overindulging by sampling smaller portions on a smaller plate. You will eat less and not waste any of the delicious holiday delights.

Tip#4. To lower your chances of becoming sick, make sure you get plenty of Vitamin C to help boost your immune system. Be sure to wash your hands frequently to limit the transfer of bacteria when coming into contact with food & holiday guests. No one wants to spend the holidays sneezing and coughing.

Tip#5.     Moisturize with Mary Kay Skin Care! This time of year is when added moisture is most needed due to winter weather. Cold air & bitter winds lack humidity and dry up natural oils in your skin, causing it to lose moisture.This leads to rough cracked skin that can feel tight & uncomfortable,not to mention making your skin look dull and dry. 

Tip#6. Take a Vitamin D supplement. With all the wet, dreary, winter weather few are adventurous enough to stay outside for long. Most people become vitamin D deficient in the winter time due to less exposure to the sun. * Vitamin D is essential for the formation, growth, and repair of bones and for normal calcium absorption and immune function. Vitamin D also boosts metabolism functions helping you maintain and lose weight.

Tip#7. Prevent stress by shopping ahead of time. A frenzied trip to the department store on Christmas Eve can cause heightened stress levels, which can lead to lower cognitive function, emotional instability & physical distress.

Tip#8. For those days when you simply cannot get to the gym, try to be as active as possible. If you go shopping, park at the end of the lot. Also take the stairs instead of escalators or elevators. 

Tip#9. Keep your current bedtime. When on a break from work or school, it can be easy to stay up later since you can sleep in the next day. When you don’t get enough sleep your mental and physical health is at risk.  Avoid disrupting your sleep cycle by waking up at your regular time. 

Tip#10. Drink responsibly, this applies to caffeinated beverages as well as alcohol. A special trip to get a latte ***** may seem like a good idea, but it can actually lead to an energy crash and dehydration (not to mention extra calories). For adult beverages, drink in moderation and alternate with water and food.                      

* Information provided by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
***** There are an average of 510 calories/200 calories from fat in most 16oz latte beverages.
