The lies in Mary Kay are not restricted to consultants, directors, and national sales directors. The husbands regularly get in on the action, trying to add an air of legitimacy to the “business.” Sure… if the husband says it’s legit, then it must be! The following untruths come from a letter signed by the husband of a Mary Kay nsd:
- I have never run across a business opportunity such as this where someone can work part-time or full-time, depending on their own wishes, name their own hours so they can be home with children if they desire, spending $100.00 minimum to get into the business and have a 90% guarantee buy-back on all products they purchase thorugh Mary Kay, if returned within the first year of becoming a consultant.
- Customers buy their products directly from their Consultants and Directors. Mary Kay, Inc. has 10% of the skin care market. Therefore, any thoughts of saturation in your city or state is unfounded.
- This inventory is a necessary investment in building a profitable business. If a sufficient amount of inventory isn’t purchased it is like a golfer who has a set of irons but no woods.
Now I think we can all agree that the nsd supplied the substance of this letter. Surely an NSD knows that the rule isn’t “within the first year of becoming a consultant,” rather inventory can be returned for a full year after it is ordered, no matter when the consultant orders it.
And for the saturation and “necessary investment” statements… Well, I think we all know how untrue both of those are.
