A former director’s story of her work never being good enough for success, and her realization that she is a lazy loser who just gives up.
I started Mary Kay as a SAHM with two babies, aged 18 months and 2 weeks. My husband made $7 per hour as a restaurant dishwasher. We lived on food stamps, WIC checks, and state insurance. With $742 in our savings account, I followed my Mary Kay director’s advice and ordered a $200 inventory. It was all I could afford; although I felt guilty for not bee-lieving in my business enough to wipe out the savings account with a $600 order.
I was excited to be a part of an opportunity that would bring me the financial freedom we needed. I was told to make a poster with pictures of my goals, I remember pasting pictures of my dream house, plentiful food, the Pink Cadillac, nice clothes etc. I set deadlines for my goals and got to work.
