S., I read your story and feel I should respond. I am a Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics. I know that you are not looking for an investment business or anything that will take you from your daughter. I understand this. However, let me tell you what Mary Kay really has to offer. We are founded on the principle of enriching women's lives. Clearly financial soundness is enriching. Here are the nuts and bolts. Yes, it is necessary to become a Beauty Consultant. This is an expense (investment, really) of $113.00 (this total includes the tax and shipping) for a beauty kit containing enough product to introduce 30 women to it. Having inventory on hand is the easist way of working but it IS NOT NECESSARY. Clear a space at home and make this your STUDIO. Invite women to come to you. Order the product after the demonstration and sale. It is not easy for sure. But, it is not easy carrying the load you are carrying either. Mary Kay is peopled with women who began with less and needed to make it happen. So they did. Great income potential DOES EXIST. IMMEDIATELY. You do not have to wait to get your money. S., the training IS PROVIDED for you. Should you respond through me, I mentor you. I teach you how to do what needs doing to build a business. Spring is a great time to start. You are surrounded with potential customers...S., $113. could be your answer. I don't know you so I don't know whether or not something like this appeals to you. But financial pressure for sure does not appeal. This Mary Kay business works, if you do. It's starts in your normal walk in life. I KNOW the relief present in what I am presenting here. It IS really the dream job. But like anything of value, it requires effort on your part. I would be happy to share the details with you if you have an interest...it is as I said it was though...$113. to start and to begin to earn that almost $400.00 extra a week you are in need of. Please respond S., I know it can help. My name is J. Eisenberg and my phone number is ###-###-####.
