During the course of my time in Mary Kay, I never missed being a star consultant. I believed that I deserved those nice gifts they were giving away each quarter, and I managed to accumulate quite a few. It wasn’t until I resigned as a director and returned my products that I came to realize how little those prizes really were worth.
My statement indicated that for the entire year my star gifts were valued at a whopping $49.00!!! Wow…. that said a lot right there. I had been a consistent Emerald that year which means I did a LOT of ordering. I earned the pink blender….which broke within two months and rusted out at the base. I had earned a voice recorder which would take an electronic genius to operate and did not work well even when it did operate. In short, the gifts were cheap.
