Hi!!!! I'm your Sales Director, Julie Becker!! I've been in Mary Kay for 4 years and I LOVE this business. i think it is the most amazing opportunity for women to be successful business owners! It allows women to have a career AND be moms - which doesn't exist much in today's world. This business has BLESSED me and my family's life and I just love sharing it with YOU!! Congrats on making the decision to start your business with Mary Kay!!
I've been married to my amazing hubby, Scott for 6 years now and we have two beautiful kiddos - Michael who is 3 1/2 and Katelyn who is 1 year! We live in Indiana (right outside of Cincinnati!) and love the outdoors - boating, camping, hunting. Scott is a firefighter in the Cincinnati area and is truly my smoking hot man :) Michael is ALL boy - he LOVES playing outside, cars and trucks and running around being silly. Katelyn is a happy, sweet baby girl - she is walking and talking and starting to get into everything!
I started my Mary Kay business in April, 2011! My good girlfriend, Alli Allen, introduced me to the amazing products when she first started her business. I quickly fell in love with the skin care and color products, but when she asked me if I wanted to sell Mary Kay, I think I laughed! I really wasn't the most likely person to do Mary Kay - I grew up very outdoorsy - I hunt and camp and barely wore makeup (foundation and mascara). The thought of teaching someone how to apply eye shadow made me laugh - when I applied it myself I always looked like I got punched in the eye - ha!!
BUT....I quickly realized that this was a great opportunity to make some extra cash, so I decided to give it a try! I was working as a Project Manager at a Digital Marketing Agency when I started Mary Kay. I went to school for marketing, so figured I'd get a J.O.B. in the field. So I worked my job, but I always felt STUCK! The thought of having to work for someone else for the rest of my career who was in charge of my promotions, salary, time, etc made me cringe. I knew I wanted MORE - I wanted more control, more $$, more time with my kids, but we also needed my income.
In January 2013 I decided to attend January Jumpstart - one of our events and it was so exciting so in March 2013, I made the decision that I wanted to work harder with Mary Kay. I was ready to move up into a leadership role becuase I wanted to quit my corporate job. That is what I did! 7 months later I debuted as an Independent Sales Director and in March of 2014 I put in my 2 weeks at my 9-5! I've been doing Mary Kay full time now (even though I don't work full time). We earned our first of forever FREE cars in March 2014 (the black Chevy Equinox). I LOVE my business and the ability to coach and mentor other ladies to realize their full potential. I'm so excited to work with you!!!!
