The lies Mary Kay consultants and directors tell about how “easy” it is to earn a car in Mary Kay and how little time it takes! This is a training document which completely downplays the amount of time and effort it will take to “earn” the car. It will cost you far more than if you just went and leased a car on your own!
Out of your 168 hours week you will need to spend 12-15 hours a week in people time to earn and continue using your free company car. Suggested allotment of time:
6 hours – 3 classes per week
3 hours – 3 interviews per week
2 hours – weekly meeting
2 hours – business debut or specialized training
2 hours – reorders, follow-up phone
Car drivers are responsible for attending all local and company sponsored events such as specialized trainings, retreats, career conference, seminar, etc.
All paper work and computer work should be delegated or hired out. Approximately 204 hours a week.
This level of activity continues building your team above 12, assures a $500-$800 sales week ($200 – $320 profit) for a monthly profit of $800-$1300 and a team commission check of $500-$800 a month.
This part-time position earns you the use of the car, tags, and approx.70% of the insurance. With the suggested activity above you will earn a total of $1000-$2100 a month in commissions from sales and recruiting.
And that, my friends is what we call a FALSE EARNINGS CLAIM. You will not “earn your car” in only 12 to 15 hours per week. The time it takes to find new victims, convince those victims to hold parties, recruit from those parties, get the recruits to place inventory order… it is all very time-consuming and claims like the above regarding the time commitment and effort are flat out lies.
