Pink Truth critics love to tell us about the executive income that is made in Mary Kay. They know MANY women who have made tons of money with MK. Women making six figures!
And women believe the hype that Mary Kay sales directors are making big money.
But how many are REALLY making big money?
When you become a national sales director, you are at the top of the pyramid. Almost no one gets there. Not because they don’t work hard enough, but because the system is rigged against them.
But if you can get there, you will make the big money. Or so they say.
Numbers don’t lie. There are about 220 NSDs. (Give or take. With the various “retirements” to become motivational speakers or shill for other MLMs, it’s impossible to tell how accurate MK’s listing is.)
The December 2018 Applause shows that 106 NSDs made $10,000 or more in August. What about the other 100+ NSDs? Can you imagine getting to the absolute TOP of the Mary Kay pyramid, only to make less than $10,000 a month (before any expenses)?
What does it feel like to get to the pinnacle of the “best opportunity in the land” and still not make six figures after expenses? Do you tell yourself that you’re just not working hard enough? What about promoting yourself and making as little or as much money as you want to make? There is really nowhere left to promote yourself to when you get to NSD. Getting an offspring national area doesn’t really help much, and might even hurt your income.
Do women in Mary Kay even think about things like this and ask themselves why half of the NSDs don’t make executive income? Or is that too negative?
