I could rant a rave all day about the unethical practices of Mary Kay Directors, Recruiters, and Consultants, but I feel it's better to let a woman make her own decison based on facts rather than the opinion of one woman. I'm posting the following websites for you to hopefully visit. Many of these women were just like you--perhaps looking for a work-from-home job, an exective income with flexible scheduling, a free car, or just some girlfriend time. These are all things a Director, Recruiter, or Consultant will tell you that you can have with Mary Kay. Ladies, I'm here to tell you that the $100 you spend on that starter kit is just the beginning of a blood sucking venture that will leave you in debt up to your eyeballs if you are not cautious. They sell you the kit for "ONLY $100", then call the next day to help you make your inventory decision--will you buy $600, $1200, $1800, $2400, $3000. or even more to get your business up and rolling??? They will ask you "Do you want to make a little or a lot?"--which is a tactic used to guilt and excite you at the same time into buying a larger inventory package.
Ladies, contrary to popular belief--the product does not sell itself!!! Truth be told, it rarely sells at all! It is NOT cutting edge, as they will tell you, and many people do have bad reactions to the products. In my opinion, the product SUCKS!!!
So, if you are invited to an event to "Be a model for an evening", or asked by someone to help with her training by listening to a speil from her Director, or even offered a facial--RUN AWAY SCREAMING!!!
As I stated before, I don't expect you to base your career decision on my experience--but I do think you should have the facts. Visit either of these sites (listed in order of my preference, or where I post more often) and you will find an abundance of info that just might help you or someone you know save tons of debt!!!
My screen name on those sites is "Done with DIQ"--if you visit, please let me know you've been there! The women are very welcoming and just like this site, there are an abundance of topics!
