“I never wanted diamonds – those came with my Mary Kay business. I just wanted a quality of life and a chance to run the victory lap.”
A tale of two lifestyles. “I spend my weekends in the Jeep and weekdays in my Cadillac,” says Cindy Williams, a hunting enthusiast and successful Independent Senior National Sales Director. This down-to-earth mother of three loves the contrasts in her life and the flexibility her Mary Kay business allows her to follow her heart’s desire.
A natural athlete, Cindy says the Mary Kay opportunity is the perfect environment for her competitive spirit. “I never wanted diamonds – those came with my Mary Kay business. I just wanted a quality of life and a chance to run the victory lap.” When Cindy was named Queen of Unit Sales at the annual Mary Kay Seminar in 1998, she made sure her boys stood with her on the stage in Dallas. “They saw me working hard at home, but they didn’t know what it was for. It was important to me for them to experience my victory and understand that hard work pays off.”
According to Cindy, she didn’t set out to become an Independent National Sales Director, she just worked to be the best each day. “I always tell people to ‘suit up and show up, and you’ll go up’ in this business. People don’t want to do the day-to-day work – they think there is a secret formula to success. But daily discipline will get you there in spite of your fears and inadequacies. If you do the daily work that most people don’t want to do, you will be successful.”
