I found this article written by Dave Fennell that provides a pretty accurate look at Mary Kay and how to determine if it is the right business opportunity for you. I agree that this business will work if you are willing to put in the time and effort but I think many people come into the business with wrong expectations. Hopefully this article will help set expectations more realistically.
Mary Kay Review – Mary Kay Is Not A Scam, But Is It A Good Fit For You?
By: Dave FennellIn my Mary Kay review, I intend to take a closer look at the Mary Kay business opportunity so that you can make a decision for yourself if Mary Kay is going to be the best business for you and your family.
Mary Kay Ash founded her company, Beauty by Mary Kay, in 1963 after a long career in the direct selling industry. She established her company with the goal of making life more beautiful for women. Over the years, Mary Kay has seen tremendous growth in both products and business opportunity to provide financial freedom that many women have grasped, and taken advantage of in the past. Mary Kay has been featured in 100 Best Companies To Work For in America, and Fortune Magazine, among many others, proving their legitimacy as a company and opportunity.
If you were to join Mary Kay, your cost to do so will be $100, plus shipping and taxes, to get you off the ground. This will provide you with the basic education, and enough products and samples to host a party of 30. You will be compensated based upon your personal production and sales of Mary Kay products. A benefit of Mary Kay is that they offer a very generous commission schedule. You will receive 50% of the suggested retail price for every product that you sell.
Mary Kay is a very legitimate company, and there is an opportunity to create a substantial income source if you are hard working, outgoing, and personable.
Now, this is the part of the review where you decide if Mary Kay is right for you. Mary Kay encourages, and trains you to utilize the old fashioned methods of pursuing your family and friends to purchase your products, and join your business opportunity. You will be hosting many product shows and parties. This is not going to be as easy as they portray. The one factor in this industry that I want to make you aware of is this. Only 3% of those who engage in these efforts actually achieve success in the multi-level marketing industry as a whole. However, if you believe that you have everything that it takes to build a rewarding business using these practices, then Mary Kay is a solid company to pursue.
