Pink Truth started out as “Mary Kay Sucks” way back in July 2006. It started as a place to make fun of all things Mary Kay. But as interest in the site grew quickly, I decided to turn it into a place for women to find REAL information about the Mary Kay flopportunity. In October 2006, the president of MK’s U.S. operations assured the national sales directors that Pink Truth would eventually be “rendered meaningless.” More than 11 years later, we’re stronger than ever. You’d think that over time, our numbers of visitors and page views would dwindle. But they haven’t. Each year more than a million unique visitors consult this site for information about Mary Kay and other MLMs.
We’ve often talked about doing our own version of seminar, just for those of us who believe in the fight against MK and other MLMs. We’ve never launched such an event, but we did have a get-together of sorts in New York in 2015 when several of us went there to film for ABC’s 20/20. And this week I went to Las Vegas to have some fun again with our very own SuzyQ and PinkPeace. Pictures, or it didn’t happen:
The best part was when we spent about 45 minutes spouting Mary Kay talking points including things like “get the dollar signs out of your eyes” and “Mary Kay works when you do” and “if I could teach you how to do what I do” and “it’s a very simple plan” and “you just have to work it the way Mary Kay designed it.” We could have gone on for hours. Thanks, Mary Kay Cosmetics, for bringing these women into my life! Talk about a silver lining!
