How were you recruited?
I attended a skin care class – a friend recently joined MK.
What about Mary Kay appealed to you most?
I love and will always love the products because it is the only one that does not irritate my skin. I will keep using the product.
Tell us about one of your most memorable or embarassing situations while in Mary Kay
The most memorable thing for me was realizing that I was USED to try to reach an annual sales goal that was not even attainable.
What did you learn from your Mary Kay experience?
To do research online before I sign ALL the time. I have a habit of to google everything…but I never googled Mary Kay, until I realized that things are not as they make it seem. It is a learning experience. I think only 1 out of every 100 consultants will make the kind of money that they tell everyone is possible at class. BTW, I attended 3 classes ans never when back. I have been going the business MY way…with suggest, but I hate that I was made to think I could get rid of $3,600 in inventory in 3-6 months if I followed the script…I did…It never happened…I have sold about $1,500 retail ($750 wholesale)
What are you doing now? Working full or part time? Working from home? etc.
I have always worked full time…I just needed some extra cash to get rid of some credit card bills but ended up more in debt:), I will fix it!
MK is not for everyone…and I am happy I am still within the year so I can send my inventory back at 90%. I am having a sale to get rid of as much as I can though because I hate giving up. Whatever your position on MK, we are all free to comment. All the best to everyone and all your decisions in life.
