How were you recruited? Tell us all the details.
My director was a patient of mine. She asked if i have ever heard of Mary Kay. I said yes. She asked if i needed to make some extra money. I said yes, then she started with her story how she was making $175/hr in NY and she was tired of the coorporate world. Well why would she ever leave $175 an hour? I am sure she got benefits/ health insurance and paid time off. Perks of a real job that MK does not offer.I asked if the economy now has slowed her business and she said “actually i have gotten busier”. I came into this with my eyes wide open. The reason why i purchased so much initial inventory was because you got $600 worth of FREE inventory with it PLUS 55% off retail The main reason they say is that customers want their product NOW. I do agree with that in a way, but even with $3800 worth of inventory you still dont have everything. I should have just purchased maybe $1000 of the basics in hind sight.
Do you have a memorable experience from your time in Mary Kay? If so, please tell us about it.
Pro’s: If you are insecure, you need someone to cheer you on in life- join.
Cons: Don’t be suckered in to buying inventory, get the minimum build your business and only spend what you can afford. Remember, it’s your business.
I hate the scripting !! Scripting is soo fake! thats the only way they get people to get suckered in, Th only reason i wasn’t in the hole is that i did sell alot, so i broke even. But if i would have gone down that road of being Star consultant, going to seminar etc. Who knows.
What are you doing now?
I sent all my inventory back and am sooo happy for doing so. I feell bad for the ones that don’t make it.
