Upcoming Program:

Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Speaker:  Jeanie Martin

National Sales Director, Mary Kay

Presentation: "You Have to Have Grit!"
What garners success? Is it intelligence, personality, appearance, social standing? What's the difference between average and great performance? Who makes it despite challenges? Let's GET GRITTY with Jeanie Martin and find out.

When Jeanie Martin taught commas and Shakespeare, she also taught high school kids how to stand up in front of their peers, overcome their fears and be their best. When Jeanie taught skin care and make up artistry, she also introduced women to an opportunity to build their own business by developing relationships and improving their own self esteem.

Jeanie has degrees in English and Speech, and a Masters in Reading, and taught high school Speech and English.  She has been building her MK business since 1988. She has been in a leadership position with Mary Kay Cosmetics for over 25 years and has grown an organization of over 1500 women in 26 states. Some think she left teaching to sell lipstick. In truth she found a venue in MK that put her in front of thousands more "grown up kids" to teach and influence. 

In 2010 she reached the highest level of Mary Kay Leadership when she was appointed to the National Sales Director position. In that capacity she has worked with leaders all over the country who own their own business.  "I coach, mentor and lead women to tap out their full potential through the avenue of a business." As a National Sales Director she's taught and spoken at conferences all over the country.  She's specialized in sales training and image development as well as leadership and motivation. She's committed and passionate about working with winners to actualize their full potential.

Jeanie’s mission in life is to teach others how to live richer, more abundant lives. An opportunity to speak gives her a platform for fulfilling this purpose.
