step #5 - your starter kit

Review the "Start Something Beautiful" magazine. Unpack all of your new products. These showcase products are for demonstration, and they are sanitary to use for yourself and for demos (use the sample wands with the mascara, so it stays sanitary). So, start using them today and fall in love with the great products you now offer! The Magazine is packed full of great tools and resources for you  Go to InTouch (directions below) and click on the Education Tab and you will find videos that show how to conduct a complete skin care party — the before, during and after!  Keep your flip chart handy for reference.  Then let me know you watched this at least one time!

The skin care party video also includes the seamless use of key digital tools — it truly shows you how to share your business services in an updated, exciting and fun way. Presented in an easy instructional manner, it uses fun pop-ups and split screens to help you understand tools, processes or tips.  

step #6 - InTouch

Log on to with your Consultant ID and create a password. You will want to memorize your login.

To order your Business Card Kit, place cursor over “Ordering”, click on “MK Connections”, then click on “Business Marketing” (be sure to include your web site address on your cards). A $73 value for only $39.99.

To set up your ProPay Account so you are able to process debit/credit cards, place cursor over “Ordering”, click on “MK Connections”, then click on “ProPay”. It is only $39.95 for the first year.  

step #7  - earn your pearls

It's simple and fun! All we do is choose women in your life that you love, tell them about our marketing plan, they ask questions, you hear me answer and learn! We will set up times in your first two weeks to have your first trainings on the marketing plan, and earn your Pearls of Sharing! This is what you do: Have her review the Opportunity information, submit a feedback form, then we set up a quick meeting or 3-way call to answer her questions. Do this with as many girlfriends as possible, so you can learn how to share the opportunity, whether she's interested or not. When you share, you can earn great prizes:

  • First 5 sharing appointments in your 1st month = Earrings

  • Email your “I Story” to me = Bracelet  (This is what you will be saying on Page 13 of your flip chart)

  • Add 1 team member in your first 30 days = Necklace

step #8  - online training

On the Intouch Site, click on the Education Tab and the dropdown menu will show -Starter Kit/New Consultant Tools/ First Steps Online Tutorial.  Complete all the steps and text or email me that you completed them!

step #9  - money matters

You'll want to keep your business money separate from your personal money, so open up a new account. This isn't a "business checking" but a FREE personal checking account (from a bank like Wells Fargo, Bank of America or Chase) that is separate from your personal accounts. This will make tax time so much easier.  BE SURE TO GET A DEBIT CARD TO GO WITH THE ACCOUNT. Deposit your first sales funds and place your initial inventory order of $600+ wholesale to earn your checkbook cover.

step 10  - color confident

One of the most fun and exciting things you'll learn is how to be confident with color and glamour! You can earn your “Skin Care Confident” and "Advanced Color Consultant" badge from the company to proudly display on your personal website, business cards, and Facebook.  Go to Intouch, click the Education Tab and then the Skin Care Confident or Advanced Color Confident tab.

step 11  - stay plugged in

Make plans to attend success events and celebrations (yes, we love to have fun!). The company has several events each year that you will want to plug into - they are always "over the top."   Don’t miss your local weekly success meeting….those who show up, go up!  Add my contact information to your contact list
