I began my Mary Kay career 5 years ago this past July. I received my 5 year pin and everything. However, I have nothing to show for it. I have a bunch of literature and supplies, but very little inventory. Why? Because I can't afford inventory. I also haven't done a class since April. I am barely receiving reorders. There are about 4 women who consistently order with me. My customer list was once over 45 people. I even had 3 team members, but they all quit. Sad, I know.
I love Mary Kay. I love everything about it. The products, the company, the philosophy, the career opportunity. Everything! I love meeting with my fellow consultants every week, but I haven't been to a meeting since July. I love going to seminar in Dallas, but I have only been twice. I miss it. A lot...
Until I get to know someone, I am a very shy and introverted person. I have a very high "C" personality. That doesn't help when you want to work your business. I have always wanted to do Mary Kay full time. Ever since I started. I wanted to move up in the company, be my own boss, and own my own business. I love every aspect of it and I want to live the life it can create. I am just too shy to get out there and do it.
You all know how I feel about phone calls. I also have a demanding job sometimes that doesn't allow me a lot of extra time. I also don't make enough to support a good inventory of product. Then, I am afraid to work the business because my customers would have to wait for me to order their products. Not good.
I really truly love and miss my Mary Kay business. I need to sit down and make a plan. "Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan". If I want to live the life Mary Kay can provide, I need to work it as a business and not a hobby. If only I can break through that shy barrier and just do it.
