Following the receipt of a letter from a long-time Mary Kay sales director to her unit, the husband of a consultant sent this response.
This letter is likely representative of what so many Mary Kay husbands and boyfriends see. That they’re not being “unsupportive.” They’re being realistic and factual. They see and say that Mary Kay is not a viable business opportunity. That isn’t unsupportive. That is love… wanting the best for your partner.
My name is xxxxx, husband of xxxxxx. I am sorry to hear of you stepping down. I only wish it had happened years ago. I have no ill feelings for you, but I despise Mary Kay. I wish I could put them out of business tomorrow and return money to all the women who are in financial trouble because of Mary Kay.
I could see Mary Kay for what it was, a scam. But xxxxxx had the Mary Kay blinders on. Twice I had to bail her out of credit card debt. I could see it coming but I had to let her lose $6,000 before her mindset would change. But it took that much money because of all the crap she was fed by Mary Kay.
The sad part is Mary Kay has some really good products – but they’re too expenses! So now xxxxxx is pretty much a personal use consultant with a basement full of “product” that is worthless.
I feel lucky that she only wasted about a year and only lost the $6,000. But I would much rather have the money in our savings account. Mary Kay has a smooth operation. Xxxxxx is a pretty smart woman but she fell for all the hype. I can only imagine how many women are out there whose lives were literally destroyed by Mary Kay.
Xxxxxx is a teacher now working 50-60 hours a week for roughly $10 per hour. But she is very happy. It really is what she was put on this earth to do because she is the only Bible some kids will ever see.
This letter probably won’t mean much to you but I feel better just getting this off my chest. I wish I could tell the world what I think of Mary Kay, Inc. So if you have a plan to take Mary Kay down you can count me in.
I wish you the best in whatever direction you choose. I know you will be successful.
P.S xxxxxx hasn’t seen your letter yet, let alone know about this letter I’m writing you.
