In Mary Kay's on-going quest to provide the products, services and business opportunities that women around the world are looking for now and for the near future, we just completed a major global research project that we called "WWW" or "What Women Want". We had learning sessions in 7 countries across the globe. In addition to the United States we also met specifically with Latina women in the US, Mexico, China, Russia, Brazil, Korea and Ukraine. Women were randomly selected from among a larger group who met the age, lifestyle and other factors that we were interested in, and each woman selected was asked to invite a good friend to attend the session with her. It was great fun getting to know these women and their friends, and hear all about their lives, their careers, how they used technology and their feelings about beauty .
Selling Mary Kay Secret
When we chatted with these women around the world our goal wasn’t selling Mary Kay make up, rather it was to find out what women really wanted in the area of beauty. One of the things they talked about to their Mary Kay representativewas how they shopped for their skin care and cosmetic products. For most of the women, it was "anything goes", meaning that they purchase their beauty products from all over — supercenters, department stores, direct sellers, specialty stores and online. It's usually about what's convenient for her. So you could say that one thing women want when shopping for beauty products is the easy access that selling Mary Kayprovides
What she also wants is control over her shopping experience. She wants it to be fun, social and casual, and sees the opportunity to browse as a part of the experience. She wants to try it before she buys it. She wants the opportunity to touch and experience it before she lays down her hard-earned money. And she is much more likely to try a new product that has been recommended by a friend or family member. “This is all about being pampered and I know what its like to want to be pampered, to have choices ” says Mary Kay beauty consultant Londa Schexnayder. “That is part of the reason I wanted to become aMary Kay representative”.
Beyond that, It wasn’t surprising to find that women also want personalized beauty advice, without pressure. She wants an advisor who is knowledgeable and is a good listener; someone who understands and knows her and her skin, and doesn't try to just sell her the latest thing that might not be right for her. Ideally, the advisor could help holistically, with everything from makeup application to the latest fashion trends, someone who will reach out to them on THEIR schedule, which is exactly what she gets when she is working with a representative selling Mary Kay.
None of this is surprising to the beauty industry, given that consumers have been in control of the buying process for quite some time now. Consumers, specifically women consumers, want to call the shots, with as many options as possible. When she has choices, she feels more in control. The only rule is that there are no rules. She gets to choose how, when, where, and how often she buys.
Beauty, control, easy access, personalized service…what every woman wants and what marketing Mary Kayis all about. ”I’m not in this just to sell make up” says Londa, “Its about empowering women to look, feel and be their best and no one does it better than Mary Kay”. What more could a woman want?
Selling Mary Kay : The Opportunity
Well, that’s a good question, and the answer is “OPPORTUNITY THEY CAN TRUST! I think this is one of those areas that's not "new" as far as women seeking out people and opportunities they trust is concerned, it's a matter of the degree of importance. There have been so many instances of things in society over the past years that have really shaken women's trust in institutions and the people behind them. That's what has brought us to this place we are today, where women just will not do business with people and companies that they don't trust.
Selling Mary Kay : Pros
Perhaps this is the reason for Mary Kay’s extraordinary success. It is a company built by woman for woman to give them opportunity on an even playing field. When asked what are the selling Mary Kay pros and cons Londa says “I get to work with extraordinary women who were looking for the same things I was…the opportunity to make as much money as I believe I’m worth, the flexibility to create my own work schedule, The freedom to live my life on my own terms”. All of these things are what makes the Mary Kay opportunity so appealing.
Selling Mary Kay Cons
And the cons? We asked…“Its’ not get rich quick” says Londa “but if you’re willing to work as hard for your self as you are for other people you can make as much money as you want; and I love the Mary Kay code of ethics…God, Family, Career in that order.”
Selling Mary Kay : Conclusion
In beauty, just as in everything else these days, those who are best at giving the women what they want will be the most loved brands. Throw in an extraordinary business opportunity and its no wonder why so many women sell Mary Kay and become a Mary Kay Representative. How about you?
No, you’re not spending your days hiding, running, and weeping, but you haven’t exactly lived up to your expectations, either.
Your blog isn’t getting nearly as much traffic as you thought it would. You still haven’t finished that product you intend to sell. In fact, months or years have gone by, and you haven’t made much progress at all. You’re beginning to wonder if you ever will.
You could rattle off a dozen reasons as to why, and most of them even sound pretty reasonable, but down deep, you know there’s only one thing really holding you back: You’re afraid.
You’re afraid of telling your family and friends to leave you alone so you can work.
You’re afraid of creating a product no one will want to buy.
You’re afraid of quitting your job and watching the bills piling up and having everyone look at you like a failure. And secretly, you’re ashamed.
You know entrepreneurs are supposed to be big and bold, laughing in the face of danger and persisting even when the whole world has turned against them. You know you have to take risks. You know you’ll never be in control of your life until you can get some time away from your friends and family and job and start working on what’s important to you.
Yet, you can’t seem to make yourself do it. You’ve been trying for so long that you’re even beginning to wonder if you’re not cut out to be an entrepreneur.
But it’s not true. To prove it to you, I’d like to take you back all the way to 1939 and reintroduce you to an unlikely hero you might have forgotten.
The Cowardly Lion
In the classic film The Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion is … well … a coward.
He’s so afraid of everything that he can’t sleep. He cries when Dorothy slaps his nose. He runs for his life when the Wizard gets angry.
And he’s ashamed of it. So ashamed, in fact, that he can’t believe Dorothy and her companions would even allow him to travel with them.
Most struggling entrepreneurs have exactly the same problems. They can’t sleep, they’re terrible at conflict management, and they get really skittish around authority figures.
When they fail, they move to a different city, switch careers, and sometimes even abandon their family, all because they can’t stand to have anyone look at them.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. The Cowardly Lion was able to overcome his fears, and so can you. You don’t even need The Great and Powerful Oz to give it to you.
How to conquer your fears
In the film, the Wizard hands the Cowardly Lion a medal and tells him he has just as much courage as any hero, giving the Lion’s story a sweet and satisfying ending.
The lesson is that courage isn’t about acting in the absence of fear; it’s about acting despite it.
That’s profound, but it also leaves a big question unanswered: how do you convince yourself to act when you’re scared to death?
Well, let’s take a look at the story.
1. Get disgusted with yourself. When The Cowardly Lion comes across Dorothy and her friends in the woods, he’s so overcome with shame that he can’t stop weeping. He desperately wants to be courageous, and that desperation propels him to go see the Wizard of Oz. It’s counter intuitive, but for most of us, that’s the way motivation works. If you want to do big things, stop waiting for a time when everything is perfect, and you feel comfortable. It’ll never happen. You’re far better off thinking about how crappy your situation is, getting genuinely frustrated with yourself, and then using that emotion to push yourself to make changes. Misery is a useful tool. Use it.
2. Find a mentor. The Wizard Of Oz could have given The Cowardly Lion a medal for courage the first time he came to see him, but he didn’t.
Instead, he gave him a quest, a chance to grow and to prove himself and to ultimately discover that he always had what he was looking for. That’s what good mentors do. They don’t actually give us anything; they merely guide us through discovering it for ourselves. And that’s indispensable.
3. Test your assumptions. By going on a quest to retrieve the Wicked Witch’s broomstick, The Cowardly Lion challenged his assumption that he was a coward, and he ended up proving himself wrong.
That’s what we all have to do. One of the greatest lessons from cognitive psychology is you can’t trust your own thoughts. When we’re depressed, we all become negatively biased, believing the way we see things is the way things are, and that’s not usually true. If you challenge your assumptions, you’ll usually find out things aren’t nearly so bleak as you think they are, and you can do a lot more than you think you can.
That little voice in your head is not, as it turns out, all-knowing. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
4. Fight for someone else. The Cowardly Lion would rather have run than try to protect himself, but when Dorothy was kidnapped by the Wicked Witch of the West, he stormed a castle of winged monkeys to save her. Most of us are this way. We’ll fight 10 times harder to avoid letting our friends down than we will to avoid letting ourselves down. So why not harness it? If you look into the past of almost any successful entrepreneur, you’ll find they had partners pushing them, depending on them, and cheering for them. It’s a perpetual source of motivation, and you can draw on it to do things you would’ve thought yourself incapable of doing.
5. Remind yourself of successes. When The Cowardly Lion returned triumphant, the Wizard gave him a medal for courage to remind him that he’s a hero.
Most people aren’t aware of this, but in the novels following the original The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz book, The Cowardly Lion continued doing brave deeds, and he continued to be afraid, but he reminded himself of his successes and continued anyway.
One of the best ways to build your own self-confidence is to keep a journal of your own victories over fear and to regularly reread them to give yourself courage. We all tend to get fixated on our failures, but having a record of your successes is a good way to keep yourself positive.
The sad truth about entrepreneurship
The fear never goes away.
You just get better at dealing with it.
I was just as afraid when I started my fifth company as I was when I started my first one. In fact, I was probably more afraid, because I understood how truly difficult it is to build a business from scratch.
But it didn’t stop me, and really, I think that’s what defines people we call heroes. They’re just as afraid as anyone else, but they keep going anyway.
They’re willing to lie in bed, sweating and worrying about how they’ll pay the bills.
They’re willing to do the unpopular thing and for everyone to think they’re an ass.
They’re willing to invest years of their life into a product, only to see it flop and have to start over again.
It’s not because they’re special. They just know the price, and they’re willing to pay it.
And really, that’s the secret. So many people I see trying to build businesses online invest all of their mental energy into SEO or the fine points of pay-per-click, or even writing killer content.
But all of those tactics will fail if you don’t have the right mindset
Mindset is what lets you turn tactics into an actual thriving business. It’s what lets you pay the price, to act when you’re scared out of your pants.
And you have to proactively create it. If you hang around successful people, you’ll notice they go to a lot of seminars, listen to a lot of motivational material, and surround themselves with other successful business people trying to do the same things.
It’s not a coincidence. They understand the value of mindset, and they set aside time every day to work on that mindset, to put themselves into the proper frame of mind to stand up and fight.Because at heart, we’re all cowardly lions. Everyday, we have to wake up and remind ourselves how to roar.

If you flush out all these toxins regularly and completely, then you will significantly prolong the aging process. The best way to get rid of all the unwanted and unclean elements that plague your body is through proper and frequent hydration. When you drink a lot of water, the toxins get flushed out before their negative effects start to show on your skin. Water thus helps to cleanse the body and protect the skin.
Also, being properly hydrated also helps the skin retain its moisture, thus keeping it protected from dryness and wrinkling, the first signs of aging. So make sure to hydrate a lot all the time if you want to stay young longer.
3. Obviously, how we eat and take care of ourselves plays an important role. There are lots of articles on anti-aging nutrition and exercise all over the web.
