Before starting my Mary Kay business:
I was a Field Service Technician. I wired buildings with heavy-duty electric equipment! Now I wire women for success!
Why I became an Independent Beauty Consultant:
I initially wanted the extra income to pay off credit card debt. I love anything to do with beauty and my husband told me I would do well in sales because I loved people and people loved me.
What I love most about my business:
My lifestyle has changed for the better! Now my daughter Janaya, granddaughter Amanda and great niece Lyndsi are Independent Beauty Consultants.
How this opportunity has changed me:
I'm empowering women and showing them Mary Kay is a wonderful opportunity if you choose to start a Mary Kay business. I'm proof you can create your lifestyle with a Mary Kay business!
What has surprised me most:
It was about more than makeup!
"I wire women for success."
What Mary Kay connections mean to me:
When I think of Mary Kay, sisterhood comes to mind. We are truly a family.
Why Mary Kay rocks:
I am now able to care for my mother, who is 95 years young, and my 54-year-old brother Tony. It's truly a blessing to have the freedom and income!
My biggest supporter
My husband and family believing in me means everything to me!
My advice to someone considering a Mary Kay business:
I believe every woman in the world should really do Mary Kay for one year of her life! It will enhance life in so many ways!
