How were you recruited?
I went to a pedicure class last summer and then was invited to attend a meeting later on for a facial. I went to several meetings before deciding that I wanted to join. My recruiter has become one of my closest friends.
What about Mary Kay appealed to you most?
I had never tried the product until September of 2006. My skin had been very tempermental – MK was the only thing that seemed to actually help my skin. The product appealed to me – but also the women in my unit are fantastic!
Tell us about one of your most memorable or embarassing situations while in Mary Kay
My most memorable memory thus far was attending my first event, which was Career Conference. The speakers we had were phenominal and very powerful. Some of the women in this business have overcome some amazing odds to become the leaders they are today.
What did you learn from your Mary Kay experience?
I am still learning. I have become a better person, more confident and self sufficent. I have learned the value of wonderful girlfriends.
What are you doing now? Working full or part time? Working from home? etc.
I work part time during the day and I work my MK business in the evening.
This business is what you make it. Some of the comments on here are very disheartening. Just like a job, if you want to work this busniess – you have to sacrifice some personal time. I have 2 small children who think what I do is fun – they are proud that their mother is happy in her life and business. It is what you make it. My director is very supportive – as is everyone in our unit. Is that the case with other directors/units? No, maybe not. But one’s negative experience shouldn’t be used to batter others choices. If you truly have a good director, then she will explain EVERYTHING to you before you sign your agreement. I purchased my inventory AFTER my debut – I used the money I made from that for inventory – I didn’t have to go into debt. Everyone’s story is different.
