I love it when Mary Kay national sales directors make up new words. Especially when they’re so fitting for a company that wants you to load up on product and get access to as much credit as you can so that you can keep ordering. This NSD refers to the “creditability” that you get from being a star consultant in Mary Kay. I think she means she wants you to have the ability to get credit…
This document is nothing more than a simple ploy to get you to order more than you need at the beginning of the seminar year. Remember that July is a rough month for most sales directors. They’ve just squeezed every bit of life (and money) out of their consultants by begging them to order non-stop to “meet the unit’s goal.”
Who’s ready to order again in July? Probably no one. That’s why the Mary Kay sales directors and NSDs trot out the “start the year right” stuff. They might as well call it “order early, order often.” All they’re doing is trying to guilt you into ordering at the beginning of the year, suggesting that if you want to be successful all year, this is the right way to start. What a load of crap!
If you think it is not important to start the new year off as a Star Consultant, think again. It is the single most important thing you can do for your business!
“Be A Star!”
Years ago I remember reading a book where the 35 most successful people in the world shared 10 things they did that helped make them successful. I read what they said and there was only one thing that they all had on their list, only one thing that every single one of them had written down the same. And that one thing was each of them ‘Made a list of the 6 most important things to do each day.’ From that moment on I decided that was one thing I would do without fail and look at the credibility of that one thing.
On every Director’s and National Sales Director’s list, is the basic success plan – The yellow brick road to follow to be successful – and that is to be a Star Consultant. Some years back I realized that a very strange thing was happening. Some of my consultants at the beginning of the quarter were actually planning not to be a Star that quarter, instead of asking, how many faces do I need to do to complete my goal. They were actually planning on being successful.
The most important reason to be a star is the creditability in your mind that this product sells which makes it so easy to recruit. Also, your recruits need to be Star Consultants so they can make money and have people to sharing their opportunity with.
When Benjamin Franklin wanted to introduce street lighting to the people of colonial Philadelphia, he did not lobby politicians, he did not publish editorials, he did not argue with those who disagreed with him. Instead, he simply hung a brilliant lantern on a long bracket in front of his own house.
Every evening, as dusk approached, he faithfully lit the wick. People out in the dark night could see Franklin’s streetlight from blocks away and very grateful to walk in its friendly glow.
Soon Franklin’s neighbors started putting lanterns on brackets in front of their homes, and it wasn’t long before the entire city was illuminated each night with street lamps.
This is the way Jesus has influenced humankind, by example, by showing us what to do and how to do it. By letting His own light shine, He not only lighted the way for us but gave us the idea that we, too, have lights that should be shining. ~This is what is meant by the speed of the leader…. you set the example, lead by example, lead by example, lead by example! It is the key to becoming influential in the business and being able to build a team.

Is she serious? Order more because it makes others think the product really sells? Well yeah… it sells to consultants who are conned into unnecessary orders!!! And wouldn’t you know it? Jesus wants you to order too. He’d do it if he was here, so you should too!
