Starting a Mary Kay Business

By Edward Dean

Starting a Mary Kay business is extremely easy, and can be an incredibly lucrative endeavor. The very first thing you would need to do would be to contact your friendly, local Mary Kay representative. This person can be found easily by logging onto the Mary Kay website – the site has a ‘Beauty Consultant’ locator that will find you the Mary Kay Representative in your area.

Once you have contacted your representative and let her know you are interested in starting a Mary Kay business, you will then meet up with her face to face to discuss all of the aspects of the Mary Kay business and start-up. There is a fee, usually only $100.00, needed to purchase all of your starter supplies. For that $100.00 you receive a very large, nice sample kit, filled with all the high quality cleansers, lotions, foundations and eye & cheek colors available through the Mary Kay Company for you to use when meeting one-on-one with your new customers. You will use these samples to demonstrate just how fabulous these products are. The start up fee is fully refundable if, once you get started; you decide the business just isn’t for you. You will need to return the kit with all of the supplies, but there is no further obligation on your part.

Another thing you may want to consider when you are starting a Mary Kay business is purchasing enough product to take with you to the facial parties you will begin scheduling. This will ensure that you have items on hand to be able to give to your customers when they make a purchase through you, rather than have them wait. This can mean the difference whether you sell your product to that person or not, so it is a great idea to make certain you have enough with you at any given time. The Mary Kay Company offers discounts on large purchases of product, and the more you buy at one time the bigger the discount you get.

Starting a Mary Kay business is also a great idea for tax purposes. Having your own business means plenty of tax write-offs at the end of the year. You can claim your gas mileage when you drive to meetings or to parties, all of your product, any items you buy to help display the cleansers and make up, postage – you are running a business, and the tax codes work allow for all of this plus home-office deductions. However, you will need to check with a tax professional for all the laws and allowable deductions.

Starting a Mary Kay business can help you bring in quite a bit of extra money, and can allow you the freedom to stay home and run your own successful business. Your success is only limited by the hours you want to work! Many women enjoy getting together at Mary Kay parties, and those are the bread and butter of any Mary Kay consultant.
