How were you recruited?
Newport Beach Mary Kay meeting. My 17 year old daughter wanted to sell Mary Kay, but couldn’t. The director explained that I should join then my daughter could take over the business when she turned 18. So, without talking to my husband and not praying about it, I foolishly joined Mary Kay again.
What about Mary Kay appealed to you most?
I was a consultant in 1987, and had to quit because of a move. I still used the product because I LOVE IT. I just hate selling anything, but thought it would be a step for my daughter.
Tell us about one of your most memorable or embarassing situations while in Mary
I really have none that is either embarassing or memorable. I have had nothing but grief.
What did you learn from your Mary Kay experience?
I learned the new products are wonderful, and I will still use Mary Kay products. However, I learned that I am not a “sales person”. I don’t like script-read presentations done to me and therefore following the Mary Kay Golden Rule I will not do that to others. Also Too much HYPE at the meetings.
What are you doing now? Working full or part time? Working from home? etc.
I am a stay at home mom. I will be going back to doing the things I love to do such as my writing, sewing, and volunteering.
I would like to caution on the “Risk-Free” opportunity. I am finding out that there is a risk to everything. I failed to do the most important step and that was to PRAY. When I told my director that I didn’t take time to pray about signing up, she informed me that Mary Kay is a Christian based company. Hmm, again, just because a company makes such a claim, things aren’t always the way it appears.
