As I know I have mentioned before, I want out of the day to day crap that is my job. Sure, the people are fantastic, but the job is boring and I need to make more money.
So, when I began at my current job, I found out that not one, but two of my co-workers were IBCs. One invited me to her parties and whatnot, and the other seemed to keep to herself. I did order from both of them, however Only because one kept an inventory of things that I used. The other girl would place orders as needed. I saw how different the business could be.
Eventually, both ladies left the firm and I thought I was done. I didn't think it was all that big a deal, because I hadn't always used Mary Kay, so I knew I could find things that I enjoyed as much. However, about a year ago, another co-worker decided to start her own Mary Kay Biz. She is not the most social or approachable person, but she has done okay for herself. From what I can tell, anyway... I have gone to a couple of her training sessions, where we get to try new products and get mini makeovers. They are a lot of fun and there are a variety of people there! I get the feeling that if she can do it, so could it.
But then I wonder, "How?" I am not very social. I love computers, so I could get the word out via the typical social networks and whatnot, but will that be enough to justify the initial investment? The reason I am thinking about it now is because there is a huge price break on the start up kit - which could NOT have come at a better time! I have been watching and reading the testimonials on the MK site, which have been an inspiration. I am talking a lot with my co-worker - who is really excited for me! That is a surprise in itself! In what kind of business is someone happy for someone else??? Girls are supposed to be catty and annoyed when other girls want to succeed... But I don't get that from Mary Kay. Everyone I have spoken with is supportive, excited and overall happy. I want to be happy! I am still going to give it some more thought, but it's really leaning toward a 'Yes, I want to be an IBC for MK!'
My question to anyone happening across this blog post is this: Do you know anyone who sells Mary Kay? Do YOU sell it? Do you love it? Was it worth your time and money?
