Mary Kay sales director Amie Kelly left the below comment on an article on my business website. The article is 14 years old. One wonders what kind of “income-producing activity” Amie was engaged in that led her to finding a 14 year old article and taking the time to comment on it.
Everyone who starts a Mary Kay business gets to start wherever they feel comfortable. If someone is recommending a new consultant spend huge amounts of money on inventory, that’s a problem with that person, not the company.
I started my MK business in 1999 with a very small inventory. I have grown my business with consistent work, and I have built a wonderful group of customers and a fantastic team. There is no requirement to recruit and to order, other than once a year.
If you didn’t have success with MK, then maybe consider it wasn’t a good fit for you. I’m curious about the root of your great efforts to speak negatively about the company. What is your motivation in this?
Starting MK was the best thing I’ve ever done, and it has impacted me, my family, and my relationships more than I can express. Anyone new to MK— don’t listen to the negativity. Get busy and be consistent. This is a wonderful place to be!
I wonder why Amie has been in MK for 23 years, but still isn’t even a “top director”? I wonder if she’s not working hard enough?
