New Consultant Training
Satin Hands Challenge
Here's your first Challenge!! Pamper yourself with a Satin Hands treatment (instructions and Satin Hand sampler will arrive in your Showcase) and then treat 25 women with the same! Script: "I've
just opened my own business teaching skin care
with Mary Kay Cosmetics out of Dallas, Texas and as part of my initial training I need to get your opinion on our Satin hands treatment," After you've demonstrated, "The set retails at
$30 + tax. Would you like one for yourself or do you have a friend in mind to give as a gift?" Checks are made out to you. Once you've ordered, product will arrive within two weeks.
Work full-circle from the start. In other words, take it to the next step by saying
"You've been so great to give me your opinion. My director suggested I start with the 25 sharpest women I meet to get their opinion on our skin care and skin supplements and
how they compare to what you are currently using.
Is there any reason why we couldn't get together for a mini makeover? Which would be better for you this week or next? Day or night?" Book exact time, but most importantly,
you're in motion! Congratulations and Good Luck!
it's time to purchase your inventory! How much? What do I buy? The following document will help you make
a wise inventory decision to fit your business needs.

How to start BOOKING
Booking Your POWER or Perfect Start
Booking First Hostess
Overcoming Booking Objections
to your Success MEETINGS... They are a Party Planned by your director each week especially for YOU! Check out our current
calendar for details...
Dress for Success
Wear Mary KayŽ products. Keep nails
manicured, lip color fresh and hair styled. You’ll want to wear professional attire.
Share the positive and eliminate the negative.
Everyone comes to a meeting to be encouraged!
Talking, whispering and interrupting
are not a part of Mary Kay.
Enthusiastic applause adds excitement to
any meeting. We all love applause!
Talk to prospective team members in a positive
way. Make them fell special without saying you are trying to “recruit” them. Let a new team member know you are
honored that she is a member of your team, and that you believe she will really enjoy this business.
Company Promotions and Prizes
Appreciate all you receive
whether it excites you or not. To say otherwise would be unprofessional to guests and sister Consultants.
Children are wonderful, but classes and meetings
are no place for them. Please arrange for their care elsewhere.
If you must carry your cell phone into
a meeting for an emergency contact, please be certain to answer it quickly and quietly, and politely leave the room to carry
on a conversation.
Be a team player and go the extra mile
for your sister Consultants and your unit.
Thank you for abiding by the above principles that make our meetings wonderful
and a place of professionalism where you can be proud to bring your guests.

Tools for your inventory and how to get organized!! we will go over this in detail at new consultant training -but if you are in a hurry and can't wait
to get organized, the basic things you need are: a tacklebox (that's right, a tacklebox - in the fishing section at wal-mart) and a few stackable
drawers. the tacklebox will house your color cosmetics and the drawers will hold
your skin care that's NOT in your complete collection bags... when you go to a show, you will have your bags - full except for color, your tacklebox and your drawers...if
you like you can get one of those 66qt containers to carry it all - put your 3 drawers on the bottom, your bags and tacklebox
on top and you're ready to SELL, SELL, SELL! (Thank you Deni Bayer for the
Pictures of How To Pack & Set Up from FESD Jodi Even:
Thank You NSD Cindy Williams!
Cosmetic Caddy [Part #210600]
Additional Color Collection
Merchandising Bag [Part #921900]
Some consultants stream line what
they carry to their classes by replacing their big Starter Kit with the Acrylic Cosmetic Caddy
and the Color Collection Merchandising Bag. You can take the retail products you
demonstrate and place them in the caddy. Place the "pre-packed" face case mirrors on the bottom of the Color Collection Merchandising Bag
and place the filled Cosmetic Caddy on top.
To Pre-pack your Face Case Mirrors simply add your styrofoam tray, your facial cloth, your folded profile card, pen, and
headband or hair clips inside the case before you close it. In your initial shipment you only received 4 Face
Cases. You may want to purchase one additional Face Case with each order you place until you reach 10 cases
& Transporting Your Demonstrators & Products:
Thank You NSD Cindy Williams!
Color Collection Merchandising Bag holding Face Cases, Cosmetic Caddy Filled, Foundation Samplers, Hostess Gift, & Misc Papers.
Cosmetic Caddy filled with
Retail product to demo on Clients. This Caddy also includs the Day Spa set (last pocket of roll up bag) and the Velocity
Products so you are prepared for younger clients at your classes.
Quick Zip Bags (found in your Starter Kit) for
foundation demonstrators, concealers and applicators. The top left Quick Zip should hold Ivory & Beige Medium Coverage, the top
right holds the Concealors, the bottom left holds extra brushes and samples, and the bottom right holds the Full Coverage
Ivory & Beige foundations. *You will have to adjust the foundation shade that you carry based on where live and
the skintone of your clients. All four of these bags should fit comfortably along side your Filled Cosmetic Caddy in
Color Merchandising Bag #1.
I will also take one additonal Color Merchandising Bag that fits my full size Travel Roll Up Bag
inside of it along with my Glamour Brush Set as a Booking gift, my money bag, and any other additonal paper work like team
building packets and hostess packets. Then it's as easy 2 bags and that's it!
Ways to display
your products at the Grand Opening Debut...
You may want to
display your inventory this way (thanks Jamie Perkins for this awesome display of her 1800 initial order):
OR DISPLAY THIS WAY (ASHLEY SANDERS TABLE BELOW- she began with 3600 in her first month) with all Color 101 Looks displayed
around the table! Great idea! Travel Roll Up bag behind with Color 101 looks filled, ready to go - they match the color cards
you get in your starter kit! How smart! What your people try on, is here to buy and take home!
