What’s the big deal about being a “Million Dollar Director” in Mary Kay? It’s all about the money and perks that you get once you hit that level.
Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? In the real world, when you hit certain sales goals, you’re rewarded. The difference is that in Mary Kay, it’s not about selling anything to a customer. All that matters is how much your unit orders. It doesn’t matter that almost everyone in the unit is losing money because the products are so hard to retail and offer so little real profit after you factor in expenses.
Nope. Once the products are in the consultants’ hands, the company and the director are paid. That’s what really matters.
Here’s what a “million $ director” in Mary Kay gets, according to the company:
You grab onto a challenge and rise to the occasion. You go the extra mile. You try harder and work smarter. And you’re always looking for the right ways and the right people to take your business to greater heights.
As a Million Dollar Director, you put the heart, the time and the extra oomph it takes to build others to success. And in return, you’re richly rewarded with relationships that last a lifetime. And if that wasn’t enough, as a Million-Dollar Sales Director, you also enjoy rewards worthy of royalty. In addition to your prize options at the Half-Million-Dollar Circle of Achievement and the Prestige and Top Sales Director Trip, you earn:
A $5,000 bonus.
Reserved seating for you and your unit members with special seat covers at Seminar.
Luxury limousine ride on Seminar Awards Night.*

Plus, you get extra rewards for your extra effort. As a $1.5 Million-Dollar Sales Director, you receive Business Class travel to the Top Sales Director Trip. And as a $2 Million-Dollar Sales Director, you receive a $10,000 bonus and First Class travel to the Top Sales Director Trip.
*Million Dollar Directors must stay in a hotel offered by Mary Kay Corporate to be eligible for the limousine ride.
As you can see, being a Million Dollar Director is like nothing else. It’s your time to really shine.
Apparently this “success” that million dollar directors help their unit members achieve doesn’t have much to do with profits.
