This comment was submitted by a woman who says she is a Mary Kay consultant in the Netherlands. Her arguments against the Pink Truth are really no different than those we hear from consultants based in the United States.
W.O.W…. I can hardly believe the US comments. As a consultant from the Netherlands, Europe I have not heard such bad comments in my country ever. Of course there are people in my country who find that MK is not for them. I think … there is always negative stuff to find about each and every company if you really want to. And that’s okay. It doesn’t mean that my MK experience will be the same as yours if you have not been successful in this business.
Yes, we have to invest. For the record, I never had to invest $ 1800,-. I was offered three options with different amounts and I chose the ‘cheapest’ way to start. But doesn’t every entrepreneur have to invest? Where would Apple be if they didn’t invest back than?
And what’s a piramid? I think every company can be marked as one if you want to, because every company recruits new employees. What’s wrong with that? Let’s say, if I open a fashion boutique, don’t I have to go find the clothes to sell? I don’t mind investing at all.
I am greatful for the opportunities I seize with Mary Kay. Mary Kay is a tool and a way of life for me. I don’t like worshipping; in Holland we say: ‘stay grounded and enjoy your success at the same time’. But I like the good spirit, the work relation that I have with my director is fantastic, thrustworthy and normal. She doesn’t push me at all.
And may I remind you that one cannot be pushed unless we allow them to push. I don’t mind if somebody else thinks otherwise. So many people… so many different experiences. I find it fascinating how much time and energy you all have put in being negative about a company like MK. Which company will be next? Thank you for sharing this, so I can keep up my focus. W.O.W. (with or without you)
