Those who have tried to make a true living with Mary Kay will tell you that it is anything but “less stressful.” Yet here is one sales director’s description of how easy it is.
Ever considered a less stressful way to pay the bills:
It’s great to be open minded about other options in today’s economy because of the changing job market. Plus, I believe that no knowledge is lost; it just makes us more powerful as women. This may or may not be a fit. My job is not to persuade women to change careers by any means but simply to educate them on the changes with our company and the career.
Many women are looking at their options today and investigating authentic alternative incomes and careers. I have a degree from Tulane, a masters from the University of Paris, and experience in the international marketing field; yet I knew that I had no guarantee that I would work for 30-40 years and retire with the same company. I know we all have bills and are security conscience, but what is true security if you base a mortgage on a job that is not guaranteed? You can lose the job (lay offs, mergers, etc) but you keep the mortgage, and they say we should have thousands saved up in the bank in order to weather the changes in the economy.
On top of that, only half a percent of women earn over $100,000 today, and women still make just 74 cents for every dollar a man earns. I have to say that I’m a positive person, but those are not good odds. It definitely couldn’t hurt to know how other women are earning money and perhaps get paid what you are worth rather than what a job is worth.
Our company has reached a whole new level of success with the emerging generations getting involved. We are updating our image for the new millennium, growing internet sales online, and seeing women step up into leadership to educate, mentor, and equip new generations. I have been with the company for 3 years and am a Senior Sales Director. One of my highest paychecks in one month was over $17,000 (which I only mention to let you know that this is not just part time sales and extra money).
There is a whole career here where many women are earning over $100,000 a year. It’s not the income that motivates me as much as feeling like I’m making a difference, helping other women, and being able to enjoy the journey with less stress. Have you ever wanted to maintain or increase your current income without increasing your personal stress level?
I have attached the personal story of the woman who trained me, Shannon Andrews, my National Sales Director. If you are at least open to finding out more more factual information on our updates, pay structure, and career path let me know. I would be more than happy to speak with you further. I always prefer to have first hand knowledge on anything I consider rather than hearsay which is all I’m offering. Looking forward to speaking with you further.
I am particularly moved by how she implies that a career with Mary Kay is guaranteed. Really? Why don’t you ask any sales director who had her agreement terminated or who “stepped down” how “guaranteed” the Mary Kay opportunity is. Why don’t you ask any former sales director who lost her unit.
The fact is that you can lose your livelihood with Mary Kay at the drop of a hat. Success in pyramid schemes like Mary Kay is reserved for a tiny fraction of one percent of the women who are a part of this predatory company.
And once again, this sales director references her “paycheck” with Mary Kay. Employees get paychecks, not the independent contractors for Mary Kay. Please stop misleading the masses.
