As part of BOND Small Business Group’s first-ever Virtual Beauty & Fashion Showcase, we sat down with #TeamBOND member and Mary Kay Independent Consultant Nicole Hill to talk about her business.
Mary Kay Inc. is an American privately owned multi-level marketing company. In 2018, Mary Kay was named the sixth largest network marketing company in the world. The company was founded by Mary Kay Ash in 1963 in Addison, Texas.
BOND: How long have you been in business?
Hill: I started my Mary Kay business on May 31, 2020.
BOND: What got you interested in Mary Kay?
Hill: When I was a teenager, my grandmother used to order Mary Kay products for my skin. I used Mary Kay for years. One day, I was thinking about how dry my skin felt and look and I needed to find a Mary Kay Consultant to start back using TimeWise Skincare Products. I started searching for my previous Mary Kay Consultant to order my mom and me some skincare products. After searching for over months without any luck locating my previous Mary Kay Consultant, I decided to become a Mary Kay Consultant in order for me to start using Mary Kay again.
BOND: What’s your favorite part of having your business?
Hill: My favorite part of my business is networking and meeting new faces to tell about Mary Kay. Mary Kay is not just a business, we are a FAMILY.
BOND: How did you start your business?
Hill: I started my business by researching the Mary Kay website for several days. After several days, I found a Mary Kay Consultant located in my area and signed up under her.
BOND: What advice do you have for other aspiring boutique owners?
Hill: My advice to other aspiring boutique owners is never to give up on your business. Always set goals to help increase success.
BOND: What is your favorite product and why?
Hill: My favorite product is the TimeWise Miracle Set 3D and the Gel Mask. The TimeWise Miracle set helps with decreasing skin aging and promotes healthy skin. The Gel Mask helps hydrate and moisturizes your skin.
