aylor Cameron, a reshman rom Elkhart, pays or college hersel — not with student loans — but with the money she earned while working as a BeautiControl representa-tive. Not only has she earned enough to support hersel ﬁnancially, her successul business has earned her an all-expenses paid trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in April, among other prizes. BeautiControl is a brand sim-ilar to Mary Kay and Avon that sells skin care treatment and a variety o cosmetics.“I got started with Beauti-Control afer one o my riends rom high school, who was a representative, came over and gave ree acials to my mom, grandma and I,” Cameron said. “At the end, my mom and grandma wanted to buy some o the products she had used. I saw how much she was making and was immediately interested.” Beore she began working with BeautiControl, Cam-eron worked two part-time jobs at Pizza Hut and at local convenience store, while still attending school. Working or BeautiControl gave her ﬂexible hours, better pay and allowed her to work with women who appreciated her services and treated her well. “I was working all the time and I didn’t always get treat-ed the best by customers,” she said. “It began to take a toll on my body.”Cameron started giving out complimentary acials to riends and amily members. She began to expand her clien-tele at a Fourth o July carnival in Elkhart, where she set up a vendor tent and had girls write their names down and put them in a bowl. “I called 50 to 60 girls and set up spa parties with all o them. I was doing at least one spa a day, and I was consis-tently making between $400 to $500 every day,” Cameron said. “Tat was my deﬁning moment.”Cameron says the part she enjoys the most is being able to provide stress-ree, relaxation services to women to make them happy. “It makes me eel so good when, at the end o the week, I have girls who tell me how happy I made them just by giving them acials,” Cameron said.One particular client still stands out to Cameron today. Te woman was a nurse who was divorced and lived with her three children in a small house. She worked all the time to be able to support her chil-dren. “Her house was messy be-cause she worked so much that she didn’t have time to clean it. She kept apologizing to me over and over,” Cameron said. “At the end, she just started crying and said it was the nic-est thing anyone has ever done or her, which made me start to cry too.” Te woman was living pay-check to paycheck, but really wanted to buy the BeautiCon-trol products. “I tried to oﬀer them to her at a discount because I knew she couldn’t aﬀord them, but she wouldn’t let me,” Cameron said. “She insisted on paying ull price because she said I had changed her lie. It meant so much to me to hear her say that.” Cameron doesn’t get any money rom the acial itsel. Te girls who receive the a-cial have the opportunity to purchase the products i they want. “Tat’s one thing that got me started with this company,” Cameron said.” I wasn’t rip-ping people oﬀ. I they didn’t want to buy the products, they didn’t have to.” She and Kennedie Dixon, the riend who initially recruited Cameron, travel to BeautiCon-trol conerences around the country every year. Tey’ve been to Dallas and Memphis twice in the past two years. Teir last conerence was the Celebration conerence, which was hosted in Dallas. Te ex-ecutive directors announced the opportunity to win a trip, all-expenses paid, to Punta Cana, and Cameron was im-mediately determined to win it. Cameron and her ﬁancé will be traveling to Punta Cana in April, along with Dixon and her ﬁancé. “BeautiControl really helped her get out o her shell,” Dixon said. “I think pampering wom-en and making them happy makes her really happy.” Cameron still tries to stay involved with BeautiControl now that she is attending the University, but doesn’t have as much time to commit to it as she did in high school. “I got really stressed and de-cided that I just needed to take a break and ocus on school or a little bit,” said Cameron. BeautiControl launched an-other trip promotion, this time to Paris, and Cameron wants to get back into it. “o me, it’s not just about the products or the money,” Cam-eron said. “It’s about getting the chance to meet so many diﬀerent women and having the opportunity to change their lives. I don’t know where I would be today i I hadn’t started doing this.”
