How Do We Make Our Money

So, how do we make our money?

This is the first question I asked when I heard about Mary Kay. We all know that money can’t buy you happiness, but it can certainly help with the choices you make in life. Whether you just want a few hundred extra dollars a month, or if you would like to make over $100,000 a month as some Mary Kay National Sales Directors have been known to do, everyone in Mary Kay can earn money the same 2 ways:


Product Sales

Whether you just signed up an hour ago, or if you’ve been in Mary Kay for 40 years, everyone in Mary Kay gets a 50% discount on Mary Kay products.  We buy them direct from Mary Kay for $1 and we sell them for $2, so to speak.  This means if you hold a skin care class (our most common way to educate women about our products and produce sales) that has $400 in sales (VERY typical), you would make $200.  Pretty good for 2 hours work!  Using that math, 2 classes per week would equal $1,600 extra cash for you every month.  Can you get excited about that?  I can!



When you begin to build your team and introduce other women to the Mary Kay career opportunity, Mary Kay rewards you by paying you in cash (and prizes!) out of corporate profits.  The amounts that they pay you are based on the orders of your team.  It’s a simple plan, really!  They have this money to give you because you led the team that brought it in!  This money does not come out of the pockets or sales of anyone on your team—Mary Kay gives it to you directly as a thank you out of THEIR pocket.  Want an example?  In one month, my Mary Kay commission check was over $15,000.00.  This was in addition to my product sales that month, and I had only been in the company for TWO YEAR’s at the time!  As you can see, it doesn’t take a hundred years to make things happen!  This may sound too good to be true, but it’s not!  Like I said, this business works if you do!

In addition to the cash, I have earned some fabulous prizes!  They give away MILLIONS of dollars every year in diamonds alone, as well as luxurious vacations all around the world!  In 2003, Mary Kay took my husband and me on an all-expenses-paid trip to Rome, as well giving me a 3 carat diamond ring!  And of course there’s the Pink Cadillac, the trophy on wheels!  But that’s okay if you don’t want to drive a pink car—Mary Kay will give you $900 a month CASH instead!  Other career cars offered by Mary Kay include the Chevy Cruz, Equinox, and Fusion.  Seriously, I could go on and on here, but I think you get the picture!
