Your Name: lisa
Date Joined MK : 1980
When Left MK or Still Active?: still active
Initial Inventory Purchased: $200
How were you recruited?:
2 gals were in the restaurant i worked in – i asked about mary kay after seeing their name tags. one came over to do a facial at my apt. and i asked more questions.
Memorable experience you had in MK:
2005 3-week missions trip to uganda was totally funded by both my mary kay sales of 7 months and my unit surprising me with about $1000 or so of final monies needed.
What did you learn from MK?:
i learned i can truly make a difference in a gal’s life by showing interest and trying to meet a specific need in some area.
What are you doing now? :
very active in my church – work at bob evans restaurant part-time and sell mary kay part-time.
i wanted to share that because of reading posts on this site, i e-mailed mary kay and suggested that newbies only be allowed to order no more than $600 the first 2 times of ordering. i personally don’t think anyone even needs to start with that, but if someone wanted to, at least there might not be more stories of credit card debt. right now, for anyone signing into mary kay during the month of aug. and ordering the $100 (plus shipping/handling/tax) starter kit, and then either ordering $600 in aug. or sept., the company is issuing a rebate check of $100. you would still get the free $100 product that comes with a $600 order and if you order within 15 days of signing and ordering your starter kit, you still get the free color 101 look with the new compact. of course you pay sales tax on the $100 product and the color 101, but i think it’s a good deal.
