A comment left on Pink Truth for me by Kaelei Johnson, Mary Kay consultant:
I have a feeling that whoever this woman is — writing in Pink Truth… probably putting down NSDs and making stuff up about Amy Dunlap or Gloria Mayfield Banks — must’ve been pretty bad at time management and sales… with her negative attitude she probably repelled all of her clients and they PROBABLY bought Mary Kay cosmetics but from another consultant. All of the team members she attracted were probably all in it only for the money rather than for pouring into women who really needed someone to love them. I’d bet on the fact that she attracted all of her failure and lack upon herself and Pint Truth is a waste of time and resources dedicated to bringing down the women who actually give it their all — not pretend to; women who give their all physically as well as emotionally and energetically. Pink Truth is dedicated to bringing down MKC because whoever designed Pink Truth failed and needs to blame someone else for her mistakes rather than owning them like a grown woman.
It’s kind of pathetic that an ENTIRE site is dedicated to bringing down one of the most successful companies in American history rather than the energy being spent on doing something positive and uplifting. Yack. *mic drop*
And my response:
Hi Kaelei! Thanks so much for participating on Pink Truth. I’m curious about how successful you’ve been with Mary Kay? And how long have you been with the company? A couple of months? How much money have you made?
Thanks for your concern about my career and my success. I’ve been fortunate enough to build a very successful forensic accounting business. It’s a real business — unlike Mary Kay which pretends to be a business for the consultants. I don’t have to lie or deceive anyone in this business, unlike Mary Kay. Sorry that I don’t fit the failure narrative that you’ve come up with. In fact, I’ve done so well that I’ve been able to fund this site personally so that we can be a resource for women looking for information on Mary Kay.
I don’t consider this site a waste of time or money. It has helped lots and lots of women avoid the bogus opportunity being sold by Mary Kay. It has helped women who got sucked in get their money back. It has helped educate lots of women about the evils of Mary Kay. That has been worth every minute and every penny.
You’re mistaken about the mission of Pink Truth. We never set out to “bring down” Mary Kay. Our only mission for the last 10+ years has been to inform women about the truth behind Mary Kay. Our purpose has always been to tell women the things their MK recruiter won’t tell them. Almost everyone fails in MLM because that’s the way the system is set up. When you experience that, we’ll be here as a resource for you.
