A visitor to Pink Truth, who failed at Mary Kay twice, says we are all just angry and bitter. Mary Kay is actually wonderful, and we are apparently stopping women from experience all of its wonderfulness. (No, dear reader, I am NOT a personal use consultant. I do not support Mary Kay in any way. Its products are horrible, its practices are even worse, and I would die before giving one red cent to the company or promoting any participation in it.)
Hi Tracy, I found your blog a few days ago when trying to look up some info about MK for a couple of friends. It would surprise me if you share my thoughts but I hope you will. I watch Fox News because vs. CNN or MSNBC because I like to hear different sides. There are always 2 sides (or many more) to every story. From the posts I read it sounds as if you are angry and bitter about MK. As a reader I wonder why you are a personal use consultant. Why would you support a company you so strongly detest? Here is my story…
In 1996 I signed my agreement. My background is full time ministry. I wanted the opportunity to stay at home with my new born. I became a car driver and director within a year. With MK I never had to use day care once! This was an answer to prayer for me. My husband was transferred and we moved in 2000.
In 2000 I resigned because we were in a new town and I had a 2nd baby. I did not have a beef with MK at all, I did not want to work at all. I was not a personal use consultant and gave all of my customers to friends in MK.
In 2002 I became a consultant for the 2nd time. My motivation was my husbands decision to go into full time ministry. His new employment status changed our income. My desire was to send my children to a private school. I did this with MK. I also became a car driver and director in 2003 for the 2nd time. I also paid our home mortgage.
In 2006 I resigned because my family and I moved to NYC for church planting. This was a huge change for our family. Once again I gave all of my customers away to friends.
MK was a great experience for my family and I for many reasons. I don’t think I will list all of the reasons because from your blog posts I doubt you would believe me anyway since you indicate so many in MK are liars.
I could not find your last name or any personal info anywhere. Maybe I overlooked it. I am sharing all of my personal contact info so you and your readers can see I am a real person.
MK has no doubt helped many people. My family and friends can testify to this. I am puzzled at the amount of time you post negatives about the company. Most companies in America would not allow you to be affiliated with them after contributing to a blog like this.
I find it disappointing anytime a person invests so much effort in blasting others. Personally I don’t get it. It makes you appear to have deep rooted anger and bitterness about many things in your life.
Think about this…if a pastor makes a mistake, steps down for some type of sin, should the people in the church stop attending church?
A doctor messes up, do we stop going to doctors?
Election votes a rigged. Do we stop voting?
Have you ever had a bad restaurant experience? Did you quit eating out?
I have had many friends who felt they wanted to go into full time ministry but after doing it decided to resign.
Just because something doesn’t work for you, for whatever reason, it doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be great for another person.
I’ll close with this verse…”There are six things God hates…no, seven he detests, ….. people who spread their strife among others. A troublemaker plants seeds of strife. Wrongdoers eagerly listen to gossip and play close attention to slander. A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is a traitor. The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words. Mockers hate to be corrected, so they stay away from the wise. A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash. It is foolish to belittle another, a sensible person keeps quiet. A fool is quick tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.”
Tracy, I am so thankful I did not read your blog before working with MK. Though I am not involved with MK now, I feel sorry for anyone looking for a job who stumbles upon your blog.
Today I prayed for you, that you would seek your peace from the Lord.
I am thankful for every woman who “stumbles” on this blog, as this blog gives her a chance to hear the REAL story about Mary Kay… the one no recruiter will ever tell her. You, dear reader, were part of the problem. You deceived women, and you continue to do so. With more than 99% of participants losing money in MLM, I guarantee that there are far more women who regret their experience than who cherish it.
