How were you recruited?
A buddy diver called me. Surprise, surprise since she has never communicated with me other than when we got together for a dive. She told me she had a new baby and was doing a side line selling Mary Kay. She invited me to a make over at her house with our other dive buddies, but I didn’t go. She called me again and invited me to a “free” facial at a hotel. I went with my two older daughters. They did the sales pitch about signing up and have your own business for only $100.00, but later added there’s an extra cost for shipping.
What about Mary Kay appealed to you most?
Making the big bucks, not having a boss, and making my own hours.
Tell us about one of your most memorable or embarassing situations while in Mary Kay
Kind of showing off to the other consultants on my team of how much I spent on my inventory when I signed up and few weeks later coming to my senses and ditching MK with the shame of being suckered into their scam so easily.
What did you learn from your Mary Kay experience?
Do research to learn what I’d be getting myself into, not to trust what you hear even from people who preach the bible, and to always remember “If it sounds too good to be true, then it is just that.” Also, to trust my gut instincts when I sense there’s something not right about a situation.
What are you doing now? Working full or part time? Working from home? etc.
Going back to college and finishing my education degree to earn real money with the sparkling jewels of the earth which are “children” and not having to do any false sales pitches to people who are already in drastic financial debt like I was.
