The Mary Kay business opportunity is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s not a scam. And it’s certainly not a pyramid! It is a solid, proven business that can greatly increase your standard of living! It’s true! Mary Kay Ash (our founder) is widely known as one of the most influential and successful business people of all time. In 1963, Mary Kay took $5,000 of her own money and turned it into what is today a multi-BILLION dollar company and the nation’s leader in skin care & cosmetic sales. Why did she do it? To Enrich Women’s Lives. Mary Kay wanted to create an opportunity for women to be paid what they were worth, not what someone else thought they were worth. And I’m here to tell you, this business works if you do! I started my business in 2001, and within a year my family was enjoying a lifestyle that we may never have had otherwise.

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:
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!
BUT! It’s not all about money…
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 …
Friends for Life
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!
Let me guess: You are not the sales type, right?
Luckily, this business is about building relationships, providing quality products and offering valuable services. Mary Kay teaches you to be informative, not pushy. Mary Kay consultants are really more like teachers than sales people. The Mary Kay products sell themselves, we just have to educate our customers about them! If you’re teachable and trainable, you can do it!
So where do the customers come from?
This is the #1 question most people have! Mary Kay provides the education and tools necessary to build clientele who want the products and personal service you have to offer. And those customers will keep coming back to you! Did you know that the average woman spends more than $600-$700 per year on the products that you could provide her through Mary Kay? Make-up is only part of the product line Mary Kay offers! A large part of our business is skin care: moisturizers, anti-aging products, etc. Did you know that we offer other things, too? From fragrances to lotions to men’s products, Mary Kay has the products to appeal to the widest range of customers!
So who are your potential customers?
People with skin! And as a Mary Kay consultant, you get all the products you use at 50% off! Many women become consultants just for personal use!
So, how do I get started?
I’m glad you asked! The startup cost is only $100 + tax & shipping! I don’t know about you, but I spend a minimum of $100 every time I just drive by Wal-Mart…but seriously, the cost is EXTREMELY minimal when you compare it with what you get in your Starter Kit! You get full-sized products valued at more than $400 retail, enough supplies to facial 30 customers and a stylish black leather tote bag! Plus the intangibles that come along with your Mary Kay business are invaluable! Here are just a few of the things that I “pulled” out of my Starter Kit:
The ability to quit my full-time J.O.B.! And I’m the best boss I’ve ever had!
The personal growth that I’ve realized; it’s changed my life!
The girlfriends that are unlike any other in the whole world!
Becoming a divorce survivor, and coming out strong thru my inner strength I’ve learned in MK!
Overcoming financial disaster with Mary Kay!
Surviving a stoke, and knowing I was a victor, not a victim!
Teaching my children how to win, and lose, and the winners just get back up one more time!
So, what do you think? If you’d like to become a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, we’d be honored to welcome you to our family! All you have to do is ask your consultant for the agreement, and you’ll be on your way! If you do not have a consultant, please email me and I will take great care of you! There is so much in store for you in your new Mary Kay business! Don’t let another second go by—there’s no time like today! Remember, the definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting a different result. If you don’t make a change now, you will be standing in the same shoes one year from now. I can’t wait to welcome you to our Team!
