Mrs. Cab Short Version



This is a great new Mrs Cab flier to use ( thanks to NSD Martha Railes and my friend Dir Karen Kurst)... especially if you are new or never did many interviews. ( there is the interview sheet and also a study sheet on what to say for each part of the MRS CAB) I double dog dare you to sit down with 10 women and go through this  even if you think they couldn't possibly be interested.  Have them do it as a favor and give them a little thank you gift.  I will never forget the day 20+ years ago when I set down with a double masters degreed Dr. who absolutely adored our products because my Director challenged me to interview 5 women who intimidated the do-wha out of me.  SHE RECRUITED on the spot.  I know my mouth must have viably hung open.   From those 5 interviews I got one recruit and referrals from a aeronautic engineer,  A state senators wife, and a dean of students at Central Florida College that eventually resulted in 3 strong, excited team members.  You never know where someone is in their life.  Some of the most successful women in business are miserable doing what they do and just need a new vehicle to accomplish great things in a new career.    You could be interviewing a National Sales Director by doing this challenge.

    Top Signs You Need a Mary Kay Career






The Oprah Winfrey Show      

Working Moms vs Stay-at-home Moms:
Oprah's show 1/23/07 talked about statistics
These statistics make me think of all the possibilities - I think that this proves (what we already know) that a good portion of the women we are encountering would be possibly 'open' to the idea of having a business like Mary Kay to be able to quit work or start working outside the home!!!!
Who will YOU interview today?
Your 'courage' to ask them could change their life forever!
Here's the information from
It's an issue that strikes at the hearts of millions of American women:
Can you be a great mother and a successful career woman?
Is it possible for women to have it all?

In an poll, more than 15,000 women?both stay-at-home and working moms?opened up about their feelings on motherhood.

Two-thirds (66%) of the working moms who responded said they would quit work and stay home with their kids if they could. More than 90 percent said they work for financial reasons.

Among the stay-at-home moms, more than one-third (36%) wished they worked outside the home.
We have an opportunity that they are looking for (Full-time income with part-time hours & flexibility)
Who do you know that your can contact TODAY and let her in on the Mary Kay secret........shhhh!



NSD 2006
TEAM BUILDING - How to have TONS of Interviews

As you're closing the class and doing the individual consultations with each guest present.Total her sale and offer her $10 off of her purchase @ that sale in exchange for her time. 

Tell her : " I am in a challenge to share company information with 10 women this week . Just for listening you would be helping me reach my goal and I would like to give you $10 off tonight because I appreciate your ears and your time. Now I know that Mary Kay is something that you probably would never consider-and that's OK. I'm not trying to recruit you. (smile) I will just share info.  and let you make that informed decision after you've heard the facts. Now-for $10 off tonight-will you help me? (smile and HUSH!) " (You could also do this with phone orders from current customers.)

They always say yes-because this is exactly how I finished my DIQ! Now when she says "YES"- I say " Thank you so much for helping me-now what is your schedule for tomorrow-could I meet you for breakfast or would lunch be better for you? " (Or you could schedule a phone interview with your director 2 or 3-way!!) 

We then schedule breakfast or lunch on the next day and then I give her $10 off right then and there. I have found that by giving her $10 off prior to her appt. with me-she has an obligation to meet with me-so she won't back out. And if she does-it has only cost me $5!!!!! No biggie! However-I have not had ONE person to back out on the next day appt. -at the lunch on the next day-

The FIRST thing that I do is ask questions about her and her life/family. I don't immediately use "sentence/sentence/sentence"
about the company. I let her know that SHE is my interest today and would never want her to feel that I am there to "recruit" her.  I take the Something More Brochure and tear out my part-give her her part. I read word for word and she follows along in her part. 

I then explain the start up cost for the showcase and all that is included for $100. I do explain the profit / commission levels. I just present her with the Career Path program (the one with the picture of the cars on the front).

I also ask what they are making at their current JOB. I explain that it is a personal question- I know- but I would like to show them how Mary Kay could make her $ faster and with a lot less stress. They always provide me with bring home pay info and I compare hour-to-hour-then I explain that realistically-they would not work Mary Kay 8 hours straight every day-because they DON"T HAVE TO!!!!! YEAH! The whole process takes me about 30 minutes. 

I just compare money to money/hour to hour stress level to stress level and @ home time with their family. The difference is usually HUGE and so they see why Mary Kay could be great for them.  After all-they just came to listen-right?????? HA!

I have my $5 shimmer tote bag with a current Look Book in the front window with her date book, car window decal, a rose, recruiting info, and a full size retail set of Satin Hands ready for her to take home when she signs and gives me the check.

The tote bag is powerful! You can decorate them more and add colored tissue paper and a Mary Kay pin on the rose. They are beautiful.

When she signs-I then give her the extra set of Career Essentials so she can start training and learning right away. I have 4 extras in stock on the Career Essentials-they just replace mine when they get their showcase. (Actually, I would give her a copy of Mary Kay's autobiography to read - Carolyn) 

That's pretty much it! Really laid back and relaxed. Once I have her check-if time, I then explain the benefits of stocking inventory -I pull out the Inventory Options brochure and show all levels beginning @ $3600 Wholesale down to $600. NEVER mention a $200 at all.

If there is not time today, leave the brochure with her and you or your director can call her once she has had a change to look at it.  If she is hesitant on inventory-I send her home with "Ready, Set, Sell" audiocassette and meet with her within the next 24-36 hours for another little while. Usually-that closes them out and they fully understand the value of inventory-then it is just a personal decision as to what she plans to do with her personal business.

I tell her that is not pressure-I am just informing her about ALL that she can get for FREE  on her initial order-I used to be terrified of opening my mouth about inventory-for fear of being pushy or having them think that I was after their money- then I grew up and became a businesswoman and realized that through Mary Kay I am offering a lifestyle change and the decision is up to them-NOT ME!

I am loving the recruiting part of my business. It just feels so good to work with women at this level and know you're giving them an opportunity to change their lives.
