Our Team Won a Cadillac!
Written by SuzyQ
Your director is the one who drives the Cadillac, you are not on the insurance. (You’re not even ALLOWED to drive it, since only people listed as “authorized drivers” on the MK paperwork are allowed to.) Your director gets additional recognition at events, you don’t. What you get from being a Cadillac unit is an additional name badge ribbon, 2 minutes going across the Career Conference “stage” and the ability to eat in a separate dining room at Seminar.
Doing it for the team/unit means doing it for the sales director. Period. The production must be there for the sales director to earn the Cadillac and to maintain it without a copay. She cannot do this without a big unit which means there will be a huge push on recruiting and ordering. Stars will be given extra recognition as will recruiters.
Even before the Cadillac is earned, she will introduce herself as a Future Cadillac Director (in the name of abundance, name it and claim it, and manifesting from the universe) and you will be introduced as members of a future Cadillac unit. It will be so special and may even be accompanied by tears. You may even receive postcards with a picture of the sacred car and a plea to do your part to make this dream come true. Order and recruit. Recruit and order.
And then there are the Unit Clubs and the Top Director Trip, and the honor of representing you on the Seminar Stage! Once again, this team effort nets you little, but your director will have a good time with the bling, the jealousy of the non-trip directors, and the sending of emails and postcards from the trip. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the pictures of food as these appear to be the epitome of the experience to most of the directors.
Next time you see a pink Cadillac, ask yourself a couple of questions: First, why would any adult female in her right mind be caught dead in a pink car, and second, what is the typical amount of her copay and her charge backs? Last, but not least, why doesn’t everyone realize that the pink Cadillac is a brilliant advertising ploy for MK and is used as the epitome of materialism in the MK world that values appearance over substance. The ultimate reward of selling your soul– the trophy on wheels.
Watch for consistency clubs and a huge push after Career Conference for orders and recruits. June is always deadly with new products to be introduced and “goals” to be achieved. The NSDs will hit the road for events and you will be pressured to attend with recruitable guests. You will be reminded frequently that those who show up go up, and if you are not sharing this opportunity with everyone, you are being selfish. You just may be the answer to some woman’s prayers. After all, you are doing this for the Team, and you ARE a Team player aren’t you?
