Mary Kay unit meetings are the weekly chance to indoctrinate you with the Mary Kay Way. The way they keep you in is by constantly reinforcing the manipulation. If you step away, you start to get clarity about what a losing proposition MLM is. If you keep coming back to the weekly meetings, they can get you excited about the bogus opportunity all over again.
Mary Kay national sales director Tammy Crayk wrote this “training aid” to help convince consultants to come to meetings every week.
Why Do I Need to Attend My Weekly Unit Meetings?
What does YOUR EMPTY SEAT at SUCCESS EVENTS say? You have heard it said since you attended training that success events are very important. Have you ever really thought why? When you do not come, you’re saying…
To Yourself and your family: This is only a hobby. (Hobbies do not make money) I really don’t want to make money. My MK is only social. My business is not important and not a priority.
To Your Customers: You are not important enough for me to keep informed. I do not plan to increase my knowledge. You don’t deserve the best service I can give. Your needs are not important to me.
To Your Sister Consultants: I don’t need your encouragement and inspiration, and I assume you don’t need mine. (Remember…. if you had a great week, we need YOU ….. if you had a challenging week, you need US!)
To a Guest: The things your consultant told you about this opportunity are not really true. This is not a ‘Real Business’. If it were truly a good deal, wouldn’t there be more people here?
To Your Director: Your help is not needed. You don’t need to take time with me on the phone because it isn’t fair to those who make an effort to attend meetings consistently, support Unit functions, and truly strive to make this business a success. Special classes, recruiting help, special promotions and contests are not important to me. Have you missed someone at a Unit meeting lately? Why not give her a call today and encourage her to join you at our very next Success Event!
Wherever you live, there is a meeting for you almost every week! It is a proven fact that those consultants who SHOW UP, GO UP!!! In fact, I truly believe that my personal success as I
advanced to directorship came from NEVER MISSING A MEETING!

- BEING A PRODUCTIVE PART OF YOUR GROUP BY BEING ACTIVE, SHARING POSITIVE IDEAS AND OFFERING YOUR SUPPORT!
MISS 1 WEEK = YOU’RE SICK
MISS 2 WEEKS = YOU’RE DYING
MISS 3 WEEKS = SEND FLOWERS FOR THE DEMISE OF YOUR BUSINESS!
BESIDES…YOUR DIRECTOR NEEDS TO SEE YOUR BRIGHT AND SHINING FACE WEEKLY… SHE IS THERE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE!
If you don’t keep showing up to these meetings, you might start coming out of the pink fog and we won’t be getting any more inventory orders from you.
