10 Things You Should Know Before Starting Your MK Business

1. The Mary Kay Way

Mary Kay Ash founded her company based on the golden ideology of “God first, family second, career third.” This model is what makes MK so different from other organizations that put profit and success above all else. She adamantly believed in this golden principle, and for almost 55 years it has been followed by her company.

2. Safety First

When it comes to makeup and skincare, MK has always been top of the line—mostly because of the tireless safety testing the company performs. On average MK conducts about 300,000 tests on products every year to ensure safety. Be prepared when you work with MK to work with the best makeup line out there.

3. Understand Your Income

The first thing most people think about when starting a new career is their personal success. Luckily for you, your possibilities are endless with MK. What you put into your career is what you will get out of it when it comes to this company. What other company can tell you that you can make as much money as you want to?

4. A Global Phenomenon

MK’s ethics and quality of products have allowed it to be sold in over 35 countries worldwide. In almost all the Americas and even into Asia, MK has left a pink footprint all over the map.

5. You Are Not Joining a Company But a Family

Prepare to be welcomed into the MK family. And with over 3.5 million Independent Beauty Consultants, 39,000 Directors, and 600 NSDs, it is a rather larger family. You will always be surrounded by women who support you and your accomplishments.

6. Required Work Ethic

Nothing in life comes easy and selling MK is not a get-rich-quick scheme. As Mary Kay Ash once said, “God feeds the birds, but he does not throw it into their nest.” When you join MK, it will be fun and exciting, but remember you do have to work for it. Put in a little bit of effort, and you will be amazed at where success will take you—maybe even in a pink Cadillac.

7. It is More Than Just Makeup

Sure, MK is known for its premium makeup lines, but the company is much more than that. Mary Kay Ash founded the MK Ash Charitable Foundation, which is known for donating money to help fight women’s cancer, as well as launching campaigns against domestic violence. When you become a part of MK, you become part of a larger network of people all working towards something greater. For example, the company logged about 500,000 volunteer hours during their Global Month of Service.

8. Neverending Guidance

When you join the MK community, you usually do so under the guidance of a Director—a person who once started where you were. Your Unit will be your family, your biggest supporters, and your source of encouragement. Depend on them!

9. The Best Cars are Pink

The pink Cadillac is synonymous with the MK community and business. Everyone who joins wants to one day drive in a nice, shiny pink Cadillac. And you absolutely can! What other company out there gives you a pink car that’s completely paid off for a whole year?

10. Bumble Bees Shouldn't be Able to Fly

If you did any research on Mary Kay Ash, you would know that the bumblebee is a pretty integral part of the company. And before you start working as an independent beauty consultant, you should know why. Mary Kay Ash once said that “Aerodynamically, the bumblebee should not be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyways.” Just like the bee, you too can do the impossible as long as you believe you can.
