My name is Athena and it is my honor to service your skincare needs. I often get the question ‘what is someone like you, with 2 Legal degrees doing as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant’. When this pandemic hit, I suddenly realized that my job was in jeopardy. After being let go I was left with the thought, “what next”? Since I had been a Mary Kay user for over 15 years and completely satisfied with the product, I quickly reached out to my consultant at that time. She was very kind in going over my business “start- up options” with me. I was not able to “stock my shelves with much inventory”. She then informed me that I could “do an E-Start” which only cost me $40. I thought it was to good to be true, but with no job prospects I took the $40 gamble. I was able to place my “personal use order” set up my website and the rest is history. I was also attracted to the fact that the Mary Kay Ash foundation fights against Domestic Violence. As a domestic violence survivor my heart felt very drawn to this activism. I have never looked back and take pride in helping others look and feel good abut themselves. I have found my calling and enjoy my life better than ever. I will always be my own boss and loving it. If it’s a Facebook posting party, facetime appointment or a skincare class in your home I promise to always make you feel special.
