    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management does a great job - overall a great company to work with, even though you are a independent contractor - the sky is the limit with this company - if you work hard, you will succeed

    Pros

    -Create your own schedule
    -Be your own boss
    -Make a decent income (as long as you're dicsiplined with cutting yourself a "paycheck"
    -Awesome support from other Mary Kay "sisters"
    -Make a difference in other women's lives
    -Free training which will help in all areas of life (money management, time management, emotional management, how to talk to people, how to sell and not be "pushy", etc)
    -Really, really fun corporate events on a quarterly basis (this was my favorite part)
    -Prizes (we're talkingg diamonds, trips, cars, etc...)

    Cons

    -You really have to depend on others to work in order to make money if you are recruiting
    -A lot of times, people won't hold their appt times for their facial, thus, you make no money
    -People signing up and then disappearing
    -People quitting and sending inventory back after you've poured everything into them
    -Not a guaranteed paycheck (unless you are doing it 24/7...I tried that. It's rough on your family.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, I think MK Corporate does a fabulous job!! We are independent contrators. It's up to US whether we succeed or not in this business, and they will support you 100% when you need help. They supported me imensely and I give credit to this company and opportunity for the person I am today. I have more confidence and better work ethic. I will always be a firm supporter of Mary Kay. =)
