Report answer

It costs about $120 up front to get hired as an Independent Beauty Consultant. Because it is basically your business, you have a lot of overheard to deal with so if you do not have a steady income or a credit card, I do not recommend exploring Mary Kay as an employment opportunity.

It is a quick process but you have to make initial investment for your business. Developing a customer base is a challenge. You have to be willing to do a lot of busy work and classes without being paid. I feel that Mary Kay equips you with the opportunity to be successful but you must be very engaged at all times to be successful and make necessary sacrifices to with unpaid time and efforts.

It can take as little as 1 hour to begin the career. Schedule a meeting with an Independent Beauty Consultant, discuss the career, sign a consultant contract, purchase a starter kit, and begin earning money as quickly as the starter kit is delivered to your home.
