    Hi there, if I signed up for Mary Kay for personal use and got the starter kit and did not place an order, how long would I go before I would have to reinstate? Can I be an N0 for up to 12 months?

      Well, that would depend on whether your Director is placing orders in your name to qualify for bonuses. If she orders enough using your consultant number you might even get a surprise Form 1099.

      That’s why we always recommend that you send notice to MK Corporate and cancel your consultant number.
