I am the soon to be ex-husband of a beautiful senior sales director. Her Mary Kay career was to be the primary support for our family. Believing this, I quit my job to work part time and raise our daughter.
Mary Kay soon consumed her life and there was no time to spend either with me or our daughter. Soon the money started to run short month after month and we soon had to make a$680 a MONTH PAYMENT ON A CADILLAC WE DIDN’T NEED. She continued to try and recruit and promised women a “free car”.
Soon I was to blame for her failures and our marriage quickly deteriorated. Working 65-70 hours per week for an after expenses income of about $10,000 per year just didn’t make much sense to me. Her relationship with our 2yr old daughter is not much better. Because of her schedule, when she does find a few minutes to spend with our daughter she is miserable for her. I wish I had seen the truth in this “business” long ago.
