Hi, my name is Benita Conn and I am a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant. My “why” for becoming a Mary Kay consultant began many years ago as a customer. My cousin and my aunt were consultants early in the Mary Kay world and introduced me to it in my teens. Over the years, I have discovered Mary Kay has kept calling me back to the lifestyle, the product, the people.
I have tried many different areas of work creating a very diverse work background. I have taught, I have done marketing, I have worked radio, I have been a bank teller, I have worked retail, and I have even bartended. Some of those positions I was successful at, and some not so successful. I have always felt like something was missing in my life. Through those years, I remained a personal use consultant and I found I was still sharing the message of Mary Kay and the product. The message I keep hearing from Mary Kay Ash herself, “make a difference in someone’s life and make them feel special.” I have always believed in that message, and I have always lived my life trying to make a difference in people’s lives. Whereas, in my various jobs outside of Mary Kay I discovered it was more about the dollar instead of the person, with the exception of teaching. I would come home feeling unfulfilled and unhappy which made things hard at home. I was not happy and totally stressed out working with people who were only working for a paycheck, week to week. I needed to find something more fulfilling.
My “why” is more than about my happiness, it is about my family. My parents are much older now and need their children more. By doing my Mary Kay it allows me to be able to help them when needed. Then there is my sweet supporting husband, Keith. Since I have been working from home and being at home when he comes home has been very rewarding. This has helped our relationship tremendously!
Being a Mary Kay Consultant has helped my self-esteem and has allowed me to have more freedom to create and enjoy life. My attitude is more positive because I know what I do matters to others. One of the best things about being an independent beauty consultant, I get to hang out and learn new things with my girlfriends, and my hard work is acknowledged. Mary Kay grows the spirit within a person through the coaching and the support from the company and the people within my inner circle.
This is my Why.
