I have a girl at work and there has been a running joke about her trying to get me to sell Mary Kay products the thing is, that I'm actually starting to consider it. I could use the extra money and think that my angle would really do well selling. I'm willing to stand up to the jokes as long as I'm making MOOONAAAY. I want to know what you all think about my proposed business venture... for you ladies would you buy Mary Kay from a male? I also think it would be a good opportunity to meet chicks, what do you think? *ducks*


ps, I'm serious

Oh, you'll probably meet a lot of chicks, but you'll never drive one of them. I think you'd meet a lot of MILF's selling pogo sticks on the side of the road and your dignity would be intact as well.

Another reason that I would do it is because the girl is one or two people (signed up under her) away from getting a free car, which she really needs as the one she drives now isn't dependable at all. I only have to order $200 worth of stuff every 6 months and my family already said that they would buy at least that much through me, I don't actually have to sell anything. They set up a web site for you and people can put orders in through it, I just check the orders and be the liason pretty much. I just think its a good way to help a friend and make a small amount of money on the side. anyone on my side under these circumstances?

The key to mackin' most successful as a Mary Kay playah is to perfectionate with the lipstick application technique.

If you learn how to deliver in a way they lips remember you can kick back high up in the Pyramid, and have your new bambi's passing out the make pretty goodies.

You askin' the inappropriate question from the jump.

This kinda reminds me of my Junior year in HS.

A friend of mine called me up one night and told me to come hang out because his parents were gone and his sister was back from college hosting a lingerie party. Something she did in school to earn extra money.

We thought this would be pretty cool. Sat around before it started and thought this kinda job would be cool. Think of all the chicks you could get. We thought some of his sisters hot friends would show up. Nope. Just a bunch of undesirable skanks.
Some a tad on the heavy side too.

Way to much cellulite. I never saw more hail damage that night than my entire life.

Needless to say we figured that would end up being a bad idea.

As to your situation. Most people would figure a guy selling that stuff is just a freak or queer. If any girls did talk to you they would probably want just that. Another friend to talk to. If they figured you as gay they would probably ask you to go shopping and get your opinion on fashion.

If your hard up for cash get a paperoute. Or pick up pop cans in your free time. Anything but this. If you decide to take this job that is OK if that's what you want.

But for the love of God don't tell anyone about it!

JMO :D
Good luck

that works too Jet, Mary Kay Pimp... MKP. get a 4% royalty on all the people up to 6 that I sign up, then it goes up to 9% if I get more than 6. then I don't even have to sell anything I just get paychecks, aside from all the jokes I don't see a downside to this. I mean I don't really wanna cruise around in a Mary K car, but my pride isn't going to get in the way, I could use the money to finish restoring my Vette, a project that has stagnated on me because I'm to broke too repaint it and do a few other things to it.

Okay I can speak as an expert on this situation.

I used to work banquets where we had ocassionally Mark K parties & let me tell ya it's not what you think.

When I 1st heard about them, I thought "cool, a bunch of hot/model types." WRONG.

Sorry buddy but unless you're into old, fat and looking to keep it however possible, then these arn't your girls. ;)

I wouldn't have any parties or anything, just sell to family and make cash on side, don't even have to go out of my way to make money on this. the meet chicks part was pretty much a joke, I've seen most of the ones that buy Mary K... but then again I've also seen some of the hottest chicks I know buy Mary K too. I don't really need something like that to meet girls. not when I have earthen tone powdered balls. :D

I don't think women want to walk around smelling like burnt gunpowder and beer. But it is an idea!

I just posted this for a laugh what you guys say really won't change my mind, I was just curious as to what the reaction would be and what I can expect at work. using you guys as a warm up for defensive strategy's :D

I still haven't gotten a response from a female. which was what I was more interested in.

I dunno cheeeefs, you don't see any men working at the Lancomme/Estee Lauder etc. counters at Dillards.

Although your set-up does sound like a win/win situation, men selling make-up makes me think of Dr. Frankenfurter or RuPaul.

But if you would seriously like a job that gets you both some extra cash and the opportunity to meet women, consider tending bar. Can't beat it on both counts. The cash is obvious. As to the women, there's something to be said for being the only sober and sensible man in the bar on a weekend night. And from behind the bar you're non-threatening, as opposed to the drunks lurching about from female to female desparately hoping for someone to go home with.

Sometimes I miss that job. Growing up sucks.

That gives me an idea for a sign at the game, you could get a pink lingerie from Victoria's Secret and put it on the sign and say "Santa is a Chiefs Fan, and he wants to give GR a pink slip for Christmas."

Ok, this might be a little embarrassing for us all, but let's be honest with ourselves, mmm'k?

1. You are a practicing Buddhist, which is no big deal - a little bit strange for the cornfed midwesterners on this BB, but we'll work through it.....
2. You are a vegetarian. Ok, sirens are blaring. What kind of All American boy from the midwest denies himself God's gift in it's rarest form, "Filet Mignon"?
3. Air Force Flyboy - ok, it's not the Navy, but it definitely ain't the Marines, either. Don't ask, can't you tell?
4. 1000 posts within a month of joining the Planet. While all your AF buddies are out chasing tail of one variety or another, you're hanging out on this board..... Yeah, I have a lot of posts, but I take 2 minute breaks - obviously.
5. Mary Kay - uh, what else is left to be said?

ok to parry

1. I am a practicing Bhuddist. I don't feel I need to defend this fact.

2. I am a vegetarian, it is linked with my faith and I also don't feel a need to defend this fact. I agree that Filet Mignon is damn good stuff, I love a big thick juicy bloody steak just as much or more then any red blooded american I've met. I've just realized the implications of my actions, where my faith is and refuse to purposely live a life of hypocricy.

3. Your right, the AF isn't the Navy or the Marines... Thank God.

4. Pot? ummm... yeah your black... yeah I have a pretty high ppd count, most of my posts come gameday when I sit at the comp and hit about 50-70 posts just during the game. I am on here quite a bit though, the tail I want isn't in my area to be chased. I know monogomy is probably foriegn to most people but its something that I hold high. I'll oggle just as much as joe nobody but there's only one girl in the world for me. Chasing isn't necassery.

5. Helping a good friend get a car, making money on the side. Its not like I'm going to be driving around the car or having femmie get togethers just putting my name to the transfer of products from a company to my mom, aunts, and other family members Via internet.

I wanted to add a thrust to the parry so you would realize the jest but I'm burnin' the midnight candle and the little wit I have has taken a vacation with the sheets, but I have to stay awake for a flip shift tomorrow night.

This is a no brainer, if you have the clientelle. (Sort of like drug dealing)

Mary Kay sells it's products to you at 50% less than you sell it to (young, non-fat by the way,) women like me. Easy money. The whole scary cult part is having to go to meetings and enlist other people to join. But thats the only way to get the car.

That being said. Unless you were gay, or had some make up related background. :P I don't think I'd take much make up advice from a dude.

Soooo I wonder if he sold.

not a bad job..just dont take the option to drive the pink explorer...take the extra cash and use your own vehicle...
