Why Mary Kay?

It’s not about the money.

To be honest with you, I did start my Mary Kay business for the money. It was my sole motivation! What I discovered was that it was so much more! Mary Kay Ash founded this company based on the Golden Rule and three principles: God first, family second and career third. Mary Kay Ash wanted to establish a career opportunity that would enrich women’s lives. And that it does! Here are just a few of the benefits that you will enjoy as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant.


When you become a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, you own your own business. That means you get to set your own hours! You work when you want to work.

Friends for Life

Making friends was the last thing on my mind when I started my business! But the friendships I’ve made with my Mary Kay girlfriends will be with me my whole life. Imagine this: You get to choose who you work with! But when you love what you do, and you do it with your closest friends, wouldn’t you agree that you never work another day in your life?


The joy that comes from helping other women enrich their lives and realize their dreams is too great to put into words. Can you believe that you can earn an executive income while reaching out to others? Wow!

Personal Growth

There are countless stories of consultants who have developed personally in ways that they would have never believed possible. From increased self-confidence to developing leadership skills to spiritual growth, the Mary Kay way of praising people to success fuels all types of personal growth!

God didn’t have time to make a nobody, only a somebody. I believe that each of us has God-given talents within us waiting to be brought to fruition. — Mary Kay Ash

Tax Benefits

Our government wants to encourage small business growth, so as small business owners, we get great benefits because we run home-based businesses. This means that you will pay less in taxes because of the tax deductions you get. There are WAY too many to mention here, but they include deducting a portion of your housing expenses (including maintenance expenses and housekeeping!), automobile expenses, and even dining out!

Let me guess: You’re not the sales type, right?

Before Mary Kay, I had never sold a thing in my life! Not even Girl Scout Cookies! Luckily, this business is about building relationships, providing quality products and offering valuable services. Mary Kay teaches you to be informative, not pushy. Mary Kay consultants are really more like teachers than sales people. The Mary Kay products sell themselves, we just have to educate our customers about them! If you’re teachable and trainable, you can do it!

So where do the customers come from?

Here I am, still reading your mind! Not really—this just happens to be the #1 question most people have! Mary Kay provides the education and tools necessary to build clientele who want the products and personal service you have to offer. And those customers will keep coming back to you! Did you know that the average woman spends more than $600-$700 per year on the products that you could provide her through Mary Kay? Make-up is only part of the product line Mary Kay offers. A large part of our business is skin care: moisturizers, anti-aging products, etc. Did you know that we offer other things, too? From fragrances to lotions to men’s products, Mary Kay has the products to appeal to the widest range of customers!

So who are your potential customers? People with skin! And as a Mary Kay consultant, you get all the products you use at 50% off! Many women become consultants just for personal use!
