My good friend, Anne, had joined Mary Kay and invited me to her grand opening party. I went reluctantly because I didn’t know much about Mary Kay and I thought those pink Cadillac’s were very tacky. Now, it’s funny because I have earned 2 Pink Cadillacs myself and I have come to realize that they are only tacky if you don’t have one. : )
I fell in love with the products and became a great customer. I actually joined the company 3 months later. I probably would have joined sooner, but I think my friend was afraid to talk to me. You see I was the corporate snob; you may know some people like that. I looked like I had it all on the outside — great job making great money, but what she didn’t know is I had over $16,000 in student loans, I didn’t have many positive friendships, and I was searching to fill a void in my heart.
I joined Mary Kay for 3 reasons: the 50% discount, to pay off student loans, and for the tax benefits (a fabulous benefit, but also very boring).
By working my business part-time, I paid off those student loans in 2½ years. I have many wonderful, positive friendships and girlfriends that encourage me and lift me up, and through the influence of Mary Kay’s priorities of God 1st, Family 2nd, and Career 3rd, I started attending church and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I am very grateful to this company and blessed beyond words. I am also so grateful to my friend Anne who offered this business opportunity to me.
Over the 18 years with Mary Kay, I have enjoyed being full-time for 13 years. I have earned 9 free cars with Mary Kay; 2 being the famous Pink Cadillac. And I have created a dream lifestyle where I can keep my priorities of God 1st, Family 2ndand Career 3rd. My favorite part about Mary Kay is I am able to help other women live out their dreams and create a dream lifestyle of their own.
