Lots of times, we get visitors who have decided that they are going to reject a lot of the Mary Kay hype and hoopla and do Mary Kay “their way.”
Usually, what doing it “their way” means is not giving in to pressure to buy lots of inventory every time new products come out; not trying to recruit everyone they come in contact with; not pressuring people to hold appointments or classes.
But can you be successful if you do things your way, rather than following the prescribed Mary Kay business plan? After all, I was always told over and over that as Consultants we shouldn’t “reinvent the wheel:” Mary Kay Ash had outlined how the business should be “worked” and following that plan was your best route to success.
Of course, every individual defines success differently.
However, if your goal is moving up in the “ladder of success,” that means you need to recruit. And those recruits need to place some serious inventory orders.
So what do you think? Can you do Mary Kay your way? Is it worth the time? Does deviating from the Mary Kay plan make sense if you want to make any money doing it?
