Pink Truth is Misguided

I received an email asking who put Pink Truth together and whether it was one former sales director with Mary Kay. I asked why it would matter, and got this in response:

It would matter because IF that is the case then that means I being one person, who is also a previous sales director and been raised in the company could orchestrate information next to the “pink truth” to set the record straight….

Because it’s obvious that someone misguided whom ever is in charge of the pink truth site AND if this is truly the feelings and concerns THEN obviously there is a cry for someone to set the record straight….

Being felt led to do so, I can and I will, gladly… I’m sorry whomever is responsible for the mid representation of Mary Kay Ash’s business, but I can assure you it is not all according to as the pink truth says so.. There is a legitimate Godly business unfortunately not every woman who joins the company represents it as so…

The good news is, that one day each one of us Will stand before our maker, whether we believe this truth or not, and answer to what we did in this life.

I apologize for the misrepresentation of this company but I am a firm believer of Mary Kay Ash’s God given dream to be utilized as a tool in hopes of changing women’s lives with confidence but more so upholding her image…what image? It Should be the image of Christ.. But to ruin and bash every Mary Kay representative is a little harsh… To set the record straight, might be just as much of a challenge but I promise you, IF priorities are lined up accordingly as God first, family second and career third, there would not be an issue..

Unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world.

I challenge you to look beyond your hurt of this misrepresentation and open up your spiritual eyes as to seeing that Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.

I could present a Biblical solution to all of this, honest. And I intend to do so..

That is why it matters, because to Jesus, a hurt and wounded heart, matters. He loves us all and He cares about the concerns of people. He sees the hearts and lives and He is taking note, even at this very hour. I challenge you to open up your heart to Him. If you listen, and draw near to Him, it is a promise that He will draw near to you….

The pink truth may be about some pretty harsh statements and may be true according to the representation of whomever gave the wrong example, But the only perfect man was Jesus and lead this email message to you, because He cares for you that much. I challenge you to listen to His voice, that He wants to bring you healing. I challenge you not to keep your heart hardened and listen to His small still voice. There is only one Truth and with it comes deception, yes. There is biblical truth, it is a responsibility to search for it, if you do, you will find it.

I am due to write a book on how God made Himself known to me. I was an atheist and the Spirit of God came to me and spoke to me and how to hear the difference in the voice of the world verses His voice, and Has been leading me ever since and has lead me to you.

There is no need for any confrontation about details, the only thing that really matters is, Do you know Jesus Christ as your Best Friend? There may be an area that has caused you pain and He is right there waiting for you to give it to Him, to show you the way, the truth and life. There is nothing else besides this truth. Everything else comes from it OR goes against it.

The pink truth is a loud voice with no solution; Here is your solution.

I don’t know you but I see your name is Tracy and I leave you with a prayer, because the Bible says we either speak blessings OR curses and I speak a blessing over your life. I was challenged to share Jesus with someone today and that person is you.

I don’t know what you believe, but All you have to know is that Jesus loves you and He died for you and He wants to fill your life and change you from the inside out if you let him.

You see, this is not about pink truth. This is a matter of your life.

I would advise a solution NoT just a problem. The world wants and needs answers. Here lies your answer….Or the beginning at least.

Take Care Tracy, I will continue to utilize the Truth that is within and expose the powers of darkness because this is what we as children of God are called to do. And greater love has no man than to lay down his life for his friends…… Hope you find some sincerity here. In the name of Jesus, I bind up your hurt and loose freedom in Christ. Today, for you. Repent and obey, the only way to begin your spiritual freedom is to forgive. Forgiveness is a powerful thing, when you loose forgiveness, you are in turn forgiven and all that has you bound is loosed. I pray that this will be so for you and maybe one day I will meet you in faith and know that God truly did a miracle for you today. So be it.

If all this seems crazy to you, Good… God is trying to get your attention. He Loves you that much… I will pray with you any time. I love Jesus more than anything in this life, honest. And He has set me free. I know He is real.

    I am a Christian. I believe in spreading the message of Jesus. And that message should not be tainted by implying that a make up company is somehow the way to Jesus. Talking about what your company did for you, fine. If you work for a christian company and enjoy it, fine. But do not ever send someone the message of salvation with an implication that if they’re a true Christian they’ll buy stuff. Reminds me of how Jesus got angry when he saw people using the church to buy and sell.

    Wow, just another example of the heavy abuse of God in MK. It’s disgusting. This is not at ALL what MK Ash intended when she founded it and allowed the philosophy of “God first” to be quoted. If she didn’t care about net profits, she never would’ve bought the company back to be privately held. Anyone who paints her as lighting candles and kneeling before God all day long does NOT get MK Ash at all, nor are they appealing to the masses.

    NSDs, if you’re reading this, please stop quoting the Bible at Seminar and every workshop you hold. Please stop guilting Directors with how much more they need to pray. You lost a Director (me) because of this, and we know more are leaving every month. Stop it!

    So if you criticize Mary Kay you are literally bullying God, who is surely omnipotent and could easily sort things out without an army of makeup huns and their slashy fingernails to defend him/her/it.

    Sure, Karen.

  4. Char

    Two words: Prove. It. And show us your Mary Kay Schedule C while you’re at it, and what the “work” entailed to earn what you did – if any was earned. You weren’t repeating lies were you? Are you sure?

    To quote someone in the news, “ I have a problem when people USE religion to harm/judge others.”

    Mary Kay is a financial scam. Stop using religion to perpetrate and defend it.

    The other problem regarding religion. You effectively alienate, judge, and essentially condemn 70% of the other humans on earth. That’s a ridiculous notion especially since you are in the minority. You are absolutely entitled to your own unproven faith, but proclaiming out loud in absolute fashion a mere belief, and not being mindful of the majority of others is Christian Supremacy. You might as well be a white supremacist at a loud but peaceful rally. Same principle!

    Supremacism –
    is an ideology which holds that particular people are superior to others, and that they should dominate, control, and subjugate others, or are entitled to do so. The supposed superior people can be an age, race (classification of human beings) species, ethnicity, religion, gender (social construct), sexuality, language, social class, ideology, nation, or culture, or any other part of a population.

    OK, so I’m disappointed. In the first two paragraphs the OP was talking about giving “information” to set the record straight. I had a glimmer of hope that she would show a Sched C or some other real, factual information. (sorry, I’m a bit of an optimistic cynic). But boy did that post fall down the rabbit hole quickly.

    However, she made three main points:

    First:
    “I’m sorry whomever is responsible for the mid representation of Mary Kay Ash’s business, but I can assure you it is not all according to as the pink truth says so..”
    This is just the “few bad apples” argument.

    Second:
    “You see, this is not about pink truth. This is a matter of your life.”
    This is probably the most arrogant thing I’ve read from a Kaybot on this site. To imply that in order for Tracy to save her life she needs to give up PT just smacks of the self-serving bs favored by unhinged religious zealots. But it translates into the mother of all “You’re just bitter that it didn’t work for you.” arguments that we’ve heard from Kaybots

    Third:
    “I would advise a solution NoT just a problem. The world wants and needs answers.”
    PT does offer the solution to MK: Don’t join. If you have joined, quit. If you’re stuck with inventory, please look at the tabs above on how to return your inventory.
    Just because you don’t like the solution to the problem, doesn’t mean it is not a solution.

    Basically this was the same Kaybot talking points hiding under christian fanaticism.

    1. TRACY

      LOL – THey never give actual information. Nor do they ever get specific about their points. They will tell us we are wrong and/or lying. Then when pressed on a specific lie or error, they often won’t answer. If they do give a specific point, when asked to prove what they are saying, they won’t do that.

  6. I just can’t take a pass on this one. If selling makeup is necessary for Tracy’s or anyone else’s redemption, why did the Almighty God allow one thousand, nine hundred and sixty three years to pass after his death before setting up such a makeup company? For one thousand, nine hundred and sixty three years, the teachings of Jesus were sufficient. To name a few:
    “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
    “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s.”
    “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God and thy neighbor as thyself.”
    AND NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT SKIN CARE OR MAKEUP.

  7. Neverpink

    This is almost completely nonsensical. Terrible grammar, run-on sentences… what exactly are you trying to say, besides “Jesus” this and “Mary Kay” that? If you’re attempting to make a point, I think you’ve missed pretty spectacularly…

    Can anyone translate this nonsense?

  8. pinkpeace

    “I challenge you to look beyond your hurt of this misrepresentation and open up your spiritual eyes as to seeing that Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.”

    Oh, that’s easy.

    Mary Kay is a problem. The solution is to SHUT IT DOWN.

  9. pink wink

    Really hoping her excuse for such terrible grammar is that she is not a Native English speaker.

    “I challenge you to look beyond your hurt of this misrepresentation and open up your spiritual eyes as to seeing that Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.”

    Can you please tell me where the bible says this? How are you supposed to find a solution unless you present it to a general audience, seek feedback, and then try solutions? This is almost as silly as the mary kayism I read the other day about not associating with anyone you wouldn’t want to trade places with. Thank God Mother Theresa didn’t follow that advice!

    OP starts talking about Mary Kay and then digresses into a whole tirade about converting Tracy to Christianity. For all she knows Tracy may even be a Christian already!

  10. I just can’t leave this alone. How about we challenge this
    kaybot to be the FIRST to publish her Schedule C and her
    tax return? We get all these letters and as far as I know
    NOT A SINGLE Schedule C or tax return has been published.

    This is horrible! Tracy is presenting the solution (don’ fall for any MLM) backed up by facts. It is arrogant of this stranger to tell Tracy, “You better repent”. Who is this gal, a fake big, bad wolf? If MK is so great, why did she quit directorship…..class? Anyone? Anyone? Probably lost her unit is why.

  12. Brooke

    Tracy I’ve recently heard the term MLM Gift Plan and when I looked it up it seemed to be a way to get people to pay for your starter kits and then you pay for theres or some thing like that. Couldn’t exactly tell but it seemed fishy. Maybe you could write an article on that because it seems like another way to rope people in and make it seem legit.

  13. Mountaineer95

    I’m not particularly well-versed with the Bible, so for argument’s sake I will assume that this:

    “Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.”

    is an actual verse and the writer somehow thinks this helps validate her stance (which I’m not entirely sure I comprehend anyway).

    Okay, let’s apply this verse to what we do here at Pink Truth:

    Let’s present one of thousands of problems with MK, and one that cannot be refuted because it is fact, and we will justify even bringing up the problem by offering a solution.

    So here’s one: unexpected commission chargebacks that hit directors when someone in their downline returns product. This figure can be huge and can make or break a director even keeping her unit. But it shouldn’t ever be a problem for any director…and here’s the solution to guarantee it’s never a problem again: the director should not spend any commission she receives from her downline’s WHOLESALE purchases until the product is confirmed by the downline that the particular product has been sold at retail (or given as a gift, or used personally). MK isn’t MLM, right, so the sale to the end consumer is the goal, so they say? Well then if directors are paid commissions on what their downlines actually sell, they shouldn’t receive (or use) the commission on any product until the product is in its final hands. So how do we control this? Easy, really, and all that’s needed to do it is the actual TRACKING OF RETAIL SALES. The IBC or above buys the wholesale product, and whenever any item she has leaves her inventory and arrives in its final hands, she logs this either with MK or with her director (whomever holds the estimated commission). At that point, the commission for that product is now released to the upline, who can then safely spend it, knowing it can never be charged back.

    Hahahahaha, like this would ever be instituted by MK. I suppose a director could try to do it with her unit commissions, by putting aside what she’s been paid for the wholesale order commissions and then only accessing that money once the product is known to be in its final hands, or if the 1-year inventory return window on that check has passed.. But I doubt you’d ever see that happen either.

    So yes, we can justifiably bring up all sorts of problems with MK because there are so many common sense solutions available. And not one of those solutions involves covering your ears and eyes and pretending a problem doesn’t exist.

    1. Mountaineer95

      Oops, I forgot to add the TL/DR for my long post:

      The loud voice of PT does have one simple solution to solve every problem of MK: compensate/reward/promote/etc everyone on basis of verifiable final consumer sales of the product.

  14. Lily in NYC

    OP, God would like you to stop using his name to spout nonsense. He doesn’t care about your MaryKay business but he does think you need grammar lessons.

  15. Jacirene

    It’s interesting how all the kaybots who write here say that “they work hard”; “they do not lie to customers”; “they have Jesus in their hearts and they will pray for the members of the PT who are in dense darkness.”
    Frankly, I want to say a few things:
    – “To work hard in mk is to give up family life, to sleep late, to wake up early, to lose friends, to lose communion with God (this is the saddest part);
    – You lie to your customers when you say that base mk is the best in the world; You lie to your recruit when you say that mk will pay your bills and that the product will sell;
    – You should be ashamed to address God in prayer when all you do all the time is to lie and deceive everyone, including yourself, by saying that your life is wonderful.

  16. Weekended

    How is a person supposed to find a solution unless they discuss the problem?

    “I challenge you to look beyond your hurt of this misrepresentation and open up your spiritual eyes as to seeing that Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.”

    No. The writer decided to send Tracy an email. However, she apparently thinks that she’s speaking for Jesus. She comes perilously close to taking the Lord’s name in vain.

    “But the only perfect man was Jesus and lead this email message to you,”

    As for the blesssings and cursings, that applied to the ancient Israelite nation.

    The email is badly written mishmash of disconnected, spiritual sounding thoughts. The writer, for all her use of the word “Biblical”, doesn’t quote a single verse. I think that she got really annoyed by Pink Truth and felt emotionally led to “witness” to Tracy about how Jesus could cure the supposed “hurt” which led to Tracy’s repudiation of Mary Kay.

    She doesn’t actually deal with any of Pink Truth’s content.

    I loathe and despise the use of God’s name in MLM.

    “I am due to write a book…..on how God made Himself known to me. I was an atheist and the Spirit of God came to me and spoke to me and how to hear the difference in the voice of the world verses His voice, and Has been leading me ever since and has lead me to you.”

    Maybe God led you here to read all the horror stories and make you a better person, and you’re not listening to God!!!

    Or, are you saying you’re more special, he only speaks and leads you, and doesn’t care two $hits about us?

    See how easily I can twist it – just like your mumbo jumbo.

    P.S. Your copy editor is going to cost you a small fortune with all the hours he’ll need to put in with your new book.

  18. Megan H

    I can’t even decipher that email or what she was trying to imply… Mary Kay was some kind of Saint? I’m a Christian (and liberal- just throwing that out there), and in my experience when someone gets so angry and lashes out and claims they’re showing Christ’s love because you have a different view… that’s not actual love. That’s them feeling self-righteous. And probably a bit defensive and scared. She found and read things on here. And not by accident, most likely.
    I could continue, but that’s besides the point. Just what a horrifying email. Bad grammar and implying God wants you to buy, sell, and wear poor-quality makeup. Sure. I’m just in disbelief over that logic, what kind of brainwashing goes on in those meetings???

  19. KayNotMary

    “…the Spirit of God came to me and spoke to me and how to hear the difference in the voice of the world verses His voice…”

    if you’re hearing voices, go see a doctor. You might have a psychiatric dysfunction or a brain tumor or something.
