Seminar Bait: Scripts and Lines Used to Get You to Seminar

Written by Raisinberry

Well we hate to have to burst your bubble about this most exciting event of the Mary Kay year… but SEMINAR is by far the most ingeniously devised manipulation of your mind, EVER. Just to get you warmed up for the reality of this extravaganza, here will be your BAIT lines to get you caught up in the hoopla.

“You can’t go next year! Why, if you don’t go this year you may not even BEE here next year!”

This is your director’s biggest fear. She knows that if she doesn’t get you on the career path, you will fizzle. Seminar is a choreographed emotionally manipulating experience where women LIE to your face from the stage but you love their sincere delivery so much, you will never notice.

“You simply must win your car and get your keys on the SEMINAR STAGE!”

To win your car you have dumped $18,000 wholesale into her unit before June 30. At 13%, your production just paid for her trip, her airfare, her gown, her registration, and quite possibly got her into any one of luncheons or special receptions. No doubt top ten seating at Area awards night, and a nice gaudy pair of earrings from your National!

“You simply must finish Directorship and debut on stage at Seminar!”

Can you even imagine the excitement? You get to activate the last 3 or 4 recruits on your own personal credit card to hit 30, charge the trip to Dallas at $1,000, buy your director’s suit for $400, all to DEBUT on stage and get that lovely Faux Ring? Then you get to pay for DIT Week the following month in Dallas AGAIN!!! If you are planning to debut before seminar, you will need about $8,000 to pull it all off. Good luck with that.

“You can’t imagine how the whole city turns out for us at SEMINAR! 50,000 women over 4 is just have to experience it!”

Oh it’s an experience all right. This cash cow funds the projects for Dallas for the entire year! It is the LOTTERY for Dallas! They love their Mary Kay ladies! Yes Siree – to your face! Can you say CHA-CHING?

“It’s Mary Kay College! Where can you get a college education for Under $800 in 4 days?”

This one is hilarious! It’s a series of I-stories designed to get you to think you have finally heard the magic key to making it big in Mary Kay. And Class day is a crap shoot as to whether you will get a good speaker or not. You have heard it all before: Book, Sell, Book, Recruit.. but it will be wrapped up in new packaging and re-sold with quotes, gestures, and anecdotes.

You will will cry… and you will walk out with a notebook full of crap you will never read again, and this year promises to be REAL SPECIAL since PinkTruth has alerted them that SALES TRAINING is null and void in Mary Kay. So be “expecting” a pitch that involves “salesmanship” training – guess what that will be? Book Sell Book Recruit.

Yep Get Ready! This is the big push to SEMINAR. And it is all designed to make you feel GREAT about loading up your credit card for your “business” and taking your business seriously… and recognizing achievements!

Just remember this is MARCH. Career Conference’s MAIN GOAL was to get you to SEMINAR where the REAL mind control will be administered.

    It’s also interesting to note that LOTS of MLMs have events similar to seminar, all with the same goal: to get more orders from consultants and to mislead consultants into seeing the company as good/ trustworthy. My former director kept saying “Isn’t it wonderful the company does all this (lights, music, food) FOR US?” Like MK Corp was being generous or unique. What a lie.

    Where else could you wear such over the top sequined dresses? Where else could you be crammed in with total strangers in a hotel room? Where else would your SD shun you because the few fools who joined her, didn’t give her front row seating? Sadly the women in my unit were wonderful empaths preyed upon by the narcisstic NSD and her mini me narcissist my SD. I hoped to find out the real way the top NSD’s made it. I suspected a lot of it was lies but didn’t realize that ALL of it was fake. No training: No glamour, no where to advertise, no new ideas etc. NSD’s yelling across to each other about those who were ruining things with fake recruits and maxed out credit cards. No awareness that the woman from my unit sold the products out of a beauty salon and somehow got away with that for a short while. (Even though her SD knew). Then another brand new director quit immediately after seminar and I suddenly realized I had been conned and this was indeed an mlm/pyramid scheme. Dual marketing while sounding ok, was actually the same and this seminar was a pink nightmare preying on female emotions.
