I submit to you that the reason women quit being independent beauty consultants for Mary Kay Cosmetics is by and large because of failure in the business.
I do understand that some may be perfectly happy in Mary Kay, but quit because of family circumstances or other reasons.
We often hear pro-Mary Kay women (and their brainwashed husbands) rave that there are millions of women who have had wonderful experiences as consultants, so the company must be fantastic. Are women quitting Mary Kay because it was everything they wanted and more, and because they were making money doing it?
Or do they quit because they are dissatisfied and are not making money?
This was similar to the 2005 reported figure of 715,000 consultants in the United States. consultants on the books at the end of the year, and we’ve got a total of 1,180,000 (yes that’s over 1 million) women in the United States who were “in” Mary Kay at some point during 2006. Or of those 700,000 on the books at the end of the year, 69% of them will quit in the following year. During 2007, Mary Kay will burn through another 500,000 American women.
This implies that at the current time, the number of consultants is staying relatively stable. For every consultant recruited, one drops out.) Mary Kay stated in its response to the FTC’s proposed Business Opportunity Rule , that there are 2,400,000 “disclosure opportunities” (meaning interviews) per year. Mary Kay Cosmetics further stated that there are 40,000 new recruits per month. a total of two million women per year who turn Mary Kay down.) At 40,000 new recruits per month… recruited 480,000 women in the United States, and 480,000 women in the United States quit.
To be in constant chase is exhausting, and to repeat it, at ’s behest, every 48 to 72 hours in six very different U. I’d estimate that 85 percent of the profiles I saw, with my radius set at 30 miles around New Bern, featured guns, military uniforms (there are two bases nearby), Confederate flags, mentions of God, or all of the above.
“I definitely assume everyone is a Republican,” Becky, a 26-year-old elementary school teacher and Democrat who dates all political persuasions, told me.
So, as suggested by a commenter last weekend, let’s take some of the mystery out of salary.

That’s the feeling that rises up in my throat whenever anyone asks me the totally non-condescending question of why I’m still single, which I’ve answered so many times in so many tones (“Just haven't met the right guy, I guess! There was the guy who kept taking calls from a number he’d labeled “Happy Happy Fun Time,” which turned out to be his drug dealer.
“I can’t limit my options here; I don’t have so many.” She’s not kidding.
New Bern was named by Market Watch as one of the top coastal towns in the country to retire to, so that leaves young, single people dating in the equivalent of a recycling bin.
