To be honest with you, I did start my Mary Kay business for the money. It was my sole motivation! But what I discovered was that it was SO MUCH MORE! Mary Kay Ash founded this company based on the Golden Rule and the principles of God first, Family second and Career third. She wanted to establish a career opportunity that would enrich women’s lives. And that it does! Here are just a few of the benefits that you will enjoy as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant:
When you become a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, you own your own business. That means you get to set your own hours! You work when you want to work. I started my Mary Kay business on 3-5 hours a week that I squeezed in around a full-time job and 2 small children. Because I was able to decide when I could fit Mary Kay in, I was able to control my schedule. And it has definitely paid off! Now, because of Mary Kay, I don’t have that constricting job, and I still work when I want to work. There’s nothing better than being the homeroom mom ever year, and waking your children every morning for school and being home every day after school …
Making friends was the last thing on my mind when I started my business! But the friendships I’ve made with my Mary Kay girlfriends will be with me my whole life! Imagine this: You get to choose who you work with! But when you love what you do, and you do it with your closest friends, wouldn’t you agree that you never work another day in your life???
The joy that comes from helping other women enrich their lives and realize their dreams is too great to put into words! Can you believe that you can earn an executive income while reaching out to others? Wow!
There are countless stories of consultants who have developed personally in ways that they would have never believed possible! From increased self-confidence to developing leadership skills to spiritual growth, the Mary Kay way of praising people to success fuels all types of personal growth!
“God didn’t have time to make a nobody, only a somebody. I believe that each of us has
God-given talents within us waiting to be brought to fruition.” — Mary Kay Ash
Our government wants to encourage small business growth, so as small business owners, we get great benefits because we run home-based businesses. This means that you will pay less in taxes because of the tax deductions you get. There are WAY too many to mention here, but they include deducting a portion of your housing expenses (including maintenance expenses & housekeeping!), automobile expenses, and even dining out!
