I hope you all had an amazing week and weekend! There are so many things coming up this next week and I am beyond excited for it! My brother and parents are coming into town for a week, SLCC begins on Thursday and I made an AMAZING Belle Cosplay from the Live Action version of Beauty and the Beast, and the next thing that is happening is in the title of this blog post. Mary Kay.
I am writing this post in the hopes of actually getting some help on making a decision with Mary Kay. To back track here, one year ago, I signed up to become a Mary Kay Consulatant along side my long time friend. I was really excited for the new opportunity, but after a month and a half, I found myself in a position where I didn’t feel like I had the time to do it. I became discouraged and frusterated quickly and would rather go back to my normal day to day life than deal with Mary Kay.
After leaving it, I felt better to an extent, I felt like a failure. I didn’t really give this a true shot. I felt pressured into buying an inventory for Mary Kay products when I couldn’t afford one. I was being pressured to convince women to try and build a team with us, when I wasn’t about that. I want to help women and even men to feel confident about their skin, or to feel good in their skin. That was the main reason I joined Mary Kay with my friend. None the less, I felt like a failure for not giving my all.
Then two weeks ago, one of my other dearest friends who is getting married in a few months won a free makeover through David’s Bridal with Mary Kay. I was invited to attend, I did. I figured that since I knew how the show is run, I wouldn’t participate. Once we got to the party, the consulant was quite rude. She knew that I had a different consultant so therefore, she didn’t see any potential dollar signs above my head. When she would ask the questions if we knew what certain products were used for or why we should use them, the other girls didn’t know why. But I did, so I answered them. The consultant was impressed with me knowing so much and said that I should be one too. I told her that I was once, but figured that it wasn’t for me. She then asked the following question, “What did you do wrong?” I told her that I tried to through together a few facial parties, but nothing ever came of it, “Well, no wonder, you weren’t doing well because you were doing everything wrong.” She refered to my voice and my attitude. This made me mad.
I thought that she was up high in the clouds, she didn’t know me. She didn’t know what I was going through when I was in Mary Kay. I thought to myself that I should join Mary Kay again to prove her wrong. I quickly changed my mind, because I didn’t want to be around such negativity. But I began to re-evaluate who I am as a person and why I joined Mary Kay in the first place. I began to do research and now I am here. I want to ask you all, whoever reads this blog.
What do you know about Mary Kay? Am I crazy to resign up with them and give it another go? Have you had any experiences with consultants? What can I do to be better and be different than other Mary Kay consultants?
I am reaching out here, becuase if I decide to do this, I want to do it right.
I appreciate you all hanging in there and reading this spill, but I really would appreciate some feedback guys. Thank you all!!!!
