This is the story of a Mary Kay sales director with a relatively short MK “career,” but very large debt when she quit. It’s so easy to quickly fall into the trap.
I started MK about 16 months ago and reached Director level. I was a Director for 6 months before I was terminated, after an extension for not meeting Quota.
I had been unemployed for 2 years when I started MK. I met a wife of one of my volunteer buddies that was on a board with me.
I haven’t totaled it all up yet. I know I depleted $20,000 from my no tax IRA paying off credit cards, I have about another $18,000 in credit card debt I am working on. I earned the Chevy Cruze in April as a consultant and debuted as a Director on Seminar stage July 1st. I sold my car that was paid off and when they pick up the Cruze at the end of this month I will have no car.
I should be able to get about half back of $17k from my inventory for the credit card.
I gave my credit card to my sales director and she placed orders under inactive consultants. I don’t think I realized what we were doing. I have watched an NSD and very high level director do unethical things in regard to recruiting and inventory purchases by the recruits.
I believe the company turns a blind eye and probably knows all this goes on but I think they are so smart as to not get caught.
