Name: Andrea, are You Active or Inactive?
It was full of lots of color products in weird colors (dark brown lipstick?) and I was confused how I was going to sell it all, but she told me they were all best sellers (yeah, right).
She told me I wouldnt be active unless I placed an order, that women wouldnt wait for product that I didnt have on hand, if I didnt have product this would only be a hobby not a career, that inventory will make me a successful.
I had 80 people invited, but few said theyd come.I attended her business debut party, and her director put on the party for her.I lost a little money in MK, but its a small price to pay compared to the hours and hours of time I would have spent as a consultant trying to earn money unsuccessfully.Once I did that, I called my director back and told her I was no longer in the company.She called my director and told on me, and I got a phone call from my director.
Her director was very convincing, so convincing that I forgot about everything bad I had heard about Mary Kay, and I became entranced in the pink dream as I like to call.
Do you have a memorable experience from your time in Mary Kay?
I ignored it, and called MK headquarters to get my product repurchase sheet sent to me in the mail.When I got my inventory return check in the mail, I was so happy!Dont feel guilty, youre not a loser for quitting, youre smart for quitting.Because of snow, the debut got postponed, and even fewer people agreed to come to the rescheduled date (like 5 people, who were all family).Well, I fell for it, and order the minimum of 600.But then, the call came in: the dreaded inventory call.She ordered ford farm bureau rebate illinois my inventory for me, and once I received it, I became discouraged.Feel free to include any additional comments here: Do NOT buy inventory.
She tried to tell me that I quit before I even got started, but I didnt care.
If you decide to quit, your director/recruit will guilt you into staying, DO NOT listen!
