MARY KAY

16 years ago I was an elementary school teacher and coaching volleyball and cheerleading in the high school. My husband and I decided we were ready to start a family and I became pregnant with Makenzie (15 now). Both of us agreed that I would quit teaching to stay at home with our children and so I finished out the year of teaching 4th grade at Willlard. During the middle of the year Mary Kay became an opportunity for me when NSD Asenath Brock, now SNSD Emeritus, recruited me. I found that I could make some extra money and still be at home with Makenzie. I liked the idea of having some "girl time" and not having to ask Kirk for "fun money". So I started my career with Mary Kay and really started to only make an extra $50 a week and have some personal time, working only 5 hours a week. I worked my business consistently, holding 2 skin care classes each week, making more than $50 a week and loving it! It was just what the Dr. ordered. I saw my self-esteem rise, my relationship with God was stronger and I had some really great girlfriends who cared about me . . . not to mention the extra money was nice! Well, 2 years later, working only 5-10 hours each week, I picked up my first car in Mary Kay, the red Grand Am. My second daughter Madison (now 13) was born just 2 weeks earlier. Wow! How exciting! Kirk was a little skeptical and wanted to know "what the catch was". We went to the car dealership and signed my name 2x and drove away with a new car to drive for 2 years with all the license, sales tax and most of the insurance paid!  Kirk was beginning to believe in this opportunity! Just a few months later I became a new Sales Director in June 2000. During the course of the next 5 years, I learned so much . . . mostly money management and discipline! We had accumulated over $200,000. in credit card debt because of mismanaging my money and the anticipation that "next month I would get caught up"! I made bad choices that affected me in all areas of my life! Those years were very challenging both at home and with my business, but I am very thankful for the opportunity that we have of unlimited income potential and that God, my family (especially Kirk) and my friends were willing to work through these mistakes with me! We began chipping away at the debt and making better choices and in December 2007 became financially free except for our home and a loan and in May 2009 became totally financially free (except our home) and NO credit cards! Kirk sold his very successful personal training business (that he had for 15 years)  just a few years ago to seek ministry opportunities, to support our Mary Kay business and doing some personal training on the side. Kirk is now a Missionary Outfitter for Cross Trail Outfitters (www.teamcto.org), where he ministers and disciples boys in their walk with Christ through a hunting and fishing club!  I am very passionate about what this business opportunity can do for women and their families, if and when they are willing to put a little work toward building a future! I love  helping women make money and gain more self esteem through positive encouragement and spiritual mentoring. Putting our priorities of God first, family second and career third have been so important to our family. I love having the flexible schedule so that I can put my schedule in the order that I choose!  We have earned 8 new cars in Mary Kay (6 of which are the pink Cadillac), 7 diamond rings and earned an all expenses paid trip to Maui, Hawaii and Rome, Italy and used travel vouchers to take a dream vacation for 10 days to Sea World and Disney World as a family!  Wow, it Is so awesome traveling Mary Kay style! Your dreams really can come true in Mary Kay if you are willing to do the work! You can have it all and you deserve it!

My Family

Husband Kirk, Daughters Makenzie 15 and Madison 13
We love to be with our family and it is an important part of our life!  Both my family and Kirk's family spend much time together. We attend lots of volleyball and baseball games and we also love to travel together.  Some of our favorite times together are spent at "the Farm" riding  4-wheelers and walking through the woods. Kirk loves to hunt and the girls love sporting activities (especially volleyball), animals, being outside and with family. I love to run and train for 1/2 marathons, traveling, and being with family and my girlfriends .  . .  And of course my Mary Kay family is some of my favorite people to be with! 

 

 
 

 

Kirk is part of a ministry called CTO (Cross Trail Outfitters). The motto for CTO is “Building Men, Perserving our Heritage and Sharing our Faith” . CTO is a locally-based Christian youth hunting and fishing club. They pass along the great American outdoors heritage while teaching valuable lessons about life, manhood and faith. They offer year-round hunting and fishing skills training, community service, friendships, fellowship and more. 

 

We spend lots of time at the girl’s sporting activities and being an athlete myself, I know that develops discipline, healthy living and fun times.   We have a great time traveling as a family to each event and the girls love the friends they have made, setting goals for themselves and having a sense of “accomplishment” when they work hard and complete their goal. Both girls are honor roll students and in “honor” classes in school, which also takes lots of discipline!  Kenzie loves to sing at church and is in the school choir. She also loves to “act” and starred in her first musical “Camp Rock” in 2012! Madie plays the flute in band at school and has just started her acting classes this year. She will have her first role soon in her first play or musical! I am so very proud of my daughters! They are godly young ladies that work hard, treat others with respect and kindness and love to hang out with mom and dad!! That makes me happy!
