Hasni Muhamad Daud
Hasni came from an ordinary family whereby her mother was a housewife, and her father was an army. She had been independent at a very young age and always helped her mother selling curry puffs to make ends meet. After her father retired, he started a small business in the market, and during school holidays, she would help him out.
Hasni excelled in her studies and she eventually had the opportunity to further her studies in the United States. After graduated, she came back, and worked at the bank in the IT department. This is where she worked for the next 18 years of her life. Hasni was shy and did not have many friends. However, she worked hard and worked till late night. This was when she learnt about Mary Kay. At the firm, she had a colleague, Norfiza, who always invited her to the Skincare class. Hasni always rejected the invitations. However, eventually Hasni realised the only way to get her to stop was to accept the invitation.
While attending Norfiza’s Skincare class she concluded that the Mary Kay business is so easy and decided to ask her sister to join Norfiza. Unfortunately, her sister rejected her idea saying that nobody would want to buy a skincare from someone who did not take care of her own skin. However, she managed to convince her sister to join Mary Kay and she paid for her registration and first activation. She taught her sister how to do the Mary Kay business based on what was demonstrated by Norfiza. She would refer her in-laws and friends to her sister. 3 months later Hasni signed up as her sister’s first team member who wanted to move up career path as a Senior Beauty Consultant.
Even though she never planned to focus on the Mary Kay business or quitting her job, she played her role as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant well because she found that it was fun. She had skincare classes every week, consistently. She used the Hostess Program in those classes conducted at the government offices on Fridays and she usually had between 15 and 20 guests in her classes. She also travelled outstation a lot to hold the skincare classes. There were times when she was invited to hold classes for 50 to 200 guests, and she had been kind enough to share the guests with her other Mary Kay sister Directors. Along the way, she rose up the rank to be the National Sales Director she is today! Her proudest moments are when she gets to share her knowledge and change people’s lives for the better. She loves being able to mentor others who were in her position before. She was a two times mentor at both Leadership Conference and Career Conference during her 10 years as a Sales Director.
Mary Kay has transformed her from a stage fright person to a mentor in front of 750 Directors from Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Australia and New Zealand. She has also delivered her speech in front of 4000 Beauty Consultants at the 2018 Career Conference. All this started from a small goal of sharing of the Mary Kay products every day. Now her efforts have snowballed, and she is impacting the lives of so many people. This was why she decided to take the leadership route, she believes she can help even more people. Her journey was not without challenges. She failed to enter National In Qualification programme the first time and it made her lost confidence and gave up her dream. But being a responsible leader and with the support from her husband and family who always wanted to see her success, she bounced back 6 months later even stronger. Hasni proved that despite it being a pandemic, we can all succeed if we are
determined and patient in pursuing our goals. If you fall 7 times, bounce back 8 times. What attracted Hasni to the business was the values. She upholds the 4 core values dearly; the Golden rule, which tells us to treat others like how we would like to be treated; the Go-Give spirit, the spirit of giving without expectations of receiving anything; make everyone feel important; and lastly the balance priorities, where we should keep God and family prioritised over work.
