The meeting I had tonight was with the Star Recruiter. My consultant is trying to become a Senior Consultant. Her main goal is to have 12 months of consecutive orders and so far she's been able to do it for 6 months. Becoming a Senior Consultant is her next goal. The meeting really was to review and polish the recruiting speech of the Star Recruiter. And of course I was asked to be a consultant. I declined. I did learn that Mary Kay tries to keep the product line at 200 items. If I had to haul around stuff and try to sell more than that it might get confusing. So the deal is that if I wanted to become one I'd get my starter kit for $100 (which has enough product to do a demo with 30 women and is the equivalent of $400) and only have to place a single order of $200 a year to keep the consultant status. Commission is 50% on anything you sell unless you discount your product. (Let's say I gave a 10% discount on all orders - that means my commission is only 40%.) The product you buy for yourself or to refill your kit only costs half price. When a consultant gets to the Senior Consultant on up, the person also gets a personal team commission paid by the company.
Afterwards I went straight to my hair appointment. Yes, it's even shorter. It's a little bit like Mia Farrow's hair in Rosemary's Baby only the bangs and sides are down straight instead of wavy like hers.
At home I found my NaNoWriMo t-shirt waiting for me. I made salmon and a baked potato for dinner. I can't remember the last time I made salmon. It was so fresh! Each bite was like butter melting in my mouth. Yummy! I watched Survivor while eating dinner. For whatever reason, the dog sounds like a whoopee cushion.
Time to write the novel!
