$250 in the pocket – Moving on from Mary Kay

by Dual Income No Kids on August 16, 2006 · 0 comments

Starting a small business is always a risky proposition. In my case, I started my Mary Kay business while I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa. I happened to be the last new consultant needed to get my Aunt into a car paid for by MK, so it was worth the sacrifice.

As it turned out, I loved the product so much (being a former Oregon crunchy type girl, who you wouldn’t guess I ever was) I ended up going into business for real after some of my globe trotting adventures settled down and I found myself in one place.

To make a long story short. I learned a great deal about sales, marketing, skin care and working with people. I sold enough to become accustomed to the extra income, but also invested a great deal. I met some fabulous people and had a great time at it. I then moved out to DC and it just hasn’t been my focus. I don’t regret my experience at all and know that I’ve learned so much from it.

Now I’m finally working at closing down my business and liquidating my inventory. The good news is, I have $250 in my pocket tonight and that much less in our closet. I’ve got a long way to go, but the ball is rolling.

Wish me luck! Pink hugs!

P.S. If you want a stellar deal on MK products or know someone who might, let me know & I’ll hook you up.
