If you wanted to just sell Mary Kay products and not recruit anyone, could you make a living doing so?
You might be able to make a living just sellng Mary Kay products, but it’s going to be difficult.
Suppose you sold $1,000 per week, EVERY week. Now remember… there are very, very few women in Mary Kay who sell $1,000 per week. There are very, very few who even sell $500 of Mary Kay products each week. But let’s just assume that you can and do sell $1,000 per week, every week, with 2 weeks a year off.
How much would you make????
Retail sales = $50,000
Less cost of product = $25,000
Less estimated discounts 5% = $5,000
GROSS PROFIT = $20,000
Sec 2 supplies 5% = $5,000
Auto 50 mi/week @ $0.40 = $1,000
Postage/Shipping $10/week = $500
Loan/CC interest = $500
Insurance on product = $75
Office supplies = $150
Other misc. supplies = $500
Total other expenses = $7,725
NET PROFIT from sales = $12,275
This net profit includes all expenses on the LOW end. Experience has shown that most Mary Kay consultants offer more discounts on the products, and have higher expenses than shown here. So this calculation would represent that absolute best case scenario for a consultant.
Do you consider $12,275 a year a good living?
