Goodbye, corporate world. Hello, Mary Kay!

About Me:

From: Gulf Breeze, Fla.

Married to Steve and have one daughter, Addie, 8.

I'd rather be:

In Tahiti!

Being with my family, shopping, and The Sound of Music.

Grandparents' upright piano.

"I don't have blue hair."

My customers' fave:

I heard about Mary Kay, but:

It's hard to leave a six-figure income and figure out how to replace it with your lipstick business.

Why I decided to do it:

I found myself expecting my little girl, working 60-80 hours a week and traveling 80 percent of the month as a corporate executive. Mary Kay was the only opportunity that would give me flexibility and open-ended earning potential.

Why does Mary Kay rock?

Mary Kay helped me define the priorities of my life. It showed me the value in areas other than fiscal.

 

My obstacles:

  • Finding customers
  • Having self-discipline
  • PRIDE: I was embarrassed to leave my corporate job and start a lipstick business. I'd only worked with men and didn't really like women. I thought they were too high maintenance to work with.

    Accomplishments/Strengths:

    I didn't let what others think of me hold me back from pursuing what was right for me and my family.
