This post is to counteract one I saw on another, not-so-pink, site. They claim that being a personal use consultant costs more than you think. Well, I say it doesn’t. Here is a break down of the cheapest personal use consultant…and all the benefits that come with it.
$100 for starter kit. (This is a tax write-off and you can use the Miracle set that comes inside…that alone retails for more than $100!)
$200 for initial order to recieve discount. So here is my advice if you don’t have the $200. Take books (from starter kit) to your friends/family and take orders until you get $200 retail ordered. Let them know it may be a few weeks for delivery as you are just starting out! Do NOT give them a discount. After all, that is why you signed up, they can do the same!
Then take the same $200 (other people’s money) and do an order. Use $100 of it to order what they wanted, as we pay 50% of retail to MK corporate. NOTE: You MUST place $200 wholesale order to recieve the 50% discount!! So use the other $100 to get things for yourself! Your customer pays the tax on retail, and so do you. So you may have to put in about $20 for taxes up front.
So all in all, you have paid $140 (all taxes included) for $300 retail products. That is 50% off AS PROMISED!! We never said a personal use consultant didn’t have to work for it in the beginning!
Repeat this process every 3 months to maintain your discount. Don’t need anything else yet? No problem! Just wait til you do, then repeat. Or do one skin care class to sell the $200. As long as you order within one year, you will not be terminated by the company. However, if you want to make a few extra dollars, you can do a few more classes and stay active at all times easily.
Be creative, that’s what being “thrifty” is all about!
DISCLAIMER: Be certain to tell your director that you are personal use and that you will contact her if your goals change. That way, she hopefully won’t expect more out of you! Or say you want emails only. I dunno, just be clear that you are only personal use. If you decide to start selling for profit, let her know and begin going to training.
