From: Phoenix, Ariz.
Married; love being with friends and family, listening to music and laughing so hard I cry.
I'd rather be:
Sci-fi, cooking for friends and family, Success magazine, Legally Blonde.
Why does Mary Kay rock?
It gives you the chance to be a better person and to realistically achieve your dreams. Once you sign your Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement, the past doesn't matter. Your future is dictated by what you choose to do tomorrow. It gives you a place to do more, to be more and to inspire others.
What I love about the Mary Kay® products:
They're recession-proof. It's not just makeup; it's a way to help women embrace who they are and feel beautiful in their own skin.
Making Christmas cookies with my Grandma and eating frosting when she wasn't looking.
I really admire:
Mary Kay Ash. She's a testament that one person really can change the world.
My Plan B
When someone first asked me to become an Independent Beauty Consultant:
I was turned off. My mom asked me! I thought it was just for old people.
What changed my mind:
Seeing the bigger picture. I liked the idea of never having someone else tell me what to do, when I had to work or what he or she thought I was worth.
"Seeing the bigger picture."
Mary Kay is great for women because:
To be a success, I get to help others succeed first. There are no glass ceilings. And you don't have to be perfect before you move forward in your business.
I Love the Products
My mom is my Independent Senior Sales Director, so everyone we knew was in the business. I had to build my business with strangers. I was surprised at how excited people were – and how they told other people. It grew from there.
I was working two jobs and going to high school. I got weird looks because I wore a business suit to class. But when you want something badly enough, you're willing to do whatever it takes.
- Confidence: I was 18 and thought people wouldn't listen to me.
- The investment: I knew I had to do it, so I just had to find a way and walk through the fear.
- Learning people skills and empathy
- Being disciplined and letting go of procrastination
- Not being a people pleaser!
