“Life is full of choices. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme
but a long-term business choice.”

Terrifically tenacious. “The only difference between an Independent National Sales Director and an Independent Beauty Consultant is that we never, ever, ever give up!” says Independent Senior National Sales Director Shannon Andrews. She acquired her tenacity by watching her mother, Independent Elite Executive National Sales Director Christine Peterson, rise to NSD. “My mom told me to stay focused for five years, and I’d be set for life — she was right!”

Shannon’s wisdom and insight betray her age. She is one of the youngest women to ever debut as an NSD, and she represents the new generation of Mary Kay leaders who realize that the Mary Kay opportunity is a contemporary option for the 21st century. “Today, Independent Beauty Consultants have choices that fit right into their lifestyles. We are not stuck in 1963. The Company has progressed and kept up with technology. The Internet has opened the door to the younger market, and the Company comes up with new ways for us to better communicate with our area members every day.”

One of Shannon’s greatest rewards is watching women in their 20s and 30s transform their lives before her eyes. But what she and her husband, Glenn, enjoy most is the flexible lifestyle that her Mary Kay business affords them. If they feel like soaking up the sun in the Caribbean or lounging at their lake house, they have the freedom to go at a moment’s notice. “Life is full of choices. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme but a long-term business choice. Sacrifices were definitely made early on, but I knew it would not be forever. Patience and a good work ethic will help you become successful for life in this business.”
