Local Mary Kay director travels overseas to provide education

CORBIN — Special to The Times-Tribune

Mary Kay Independent National Sales Director Linda Toupin of Corydon, Indiana, is among a select group of Mary Kay business owners who provide motivation and education to her fellow Mary Kay independent sales force members in the Company’s international markets. Recently, Toupin traveled to Kazakhstan, China, and Australia to attend as a guest speaker for Mary Kay.

Toupin, a former home economics teacher, began her Mary Kay business as an Independent Beauty Consultant in April of 1982 and, as a direct result of her accomplishments, became an Independent Sales Director in October of 1993. In August of 2000, Toupin reached the pinnacle of achievement when she joined an elite set of Mary Kay business owners as an Independent National Sales Director. Independent National Sales Directors rank among the top one percentile in terms of sales and recruitment within the entire Mary Kay independent sales force worldwide. Throughout Mary Kay Inc.’s 45-year history, more than 500 women have become Independent National Sales Directors.

“It is always very humbling to be asked to represent the U.S. at any of Mary Kay’s international subsidiaries,” said Toupin. “The women of Kazakhstan, China and Australia were warm, friendly and anxious to learn more about the Mary Kay business opportunity. Women, no matter what language they speak, all want the same thing for themselves and their families: happiness, health and financial security.”

Linda lives in Corydon, Indiana with her husband David, son Neil and daughter Katie. She taught Home Economics at New Washington High School from 1976-1986.

Linda Chesnut Toupin is the daughter of Robert and Joyce Chesnut, London, KY, formerly of Whitley County. Linda graduated from Whitley County High School and Eastern Kentucky University.
