Pink Truth is So Hateful

We know there are plenty of hidden agendas in Mary Kay and plenty of truths that aren’t told until long after you’re sucked into the pink vortex. But this happy Mary Kay consultant wants us to quit saying bad things about the company, because anything that happened to us in Mary Kay is our own fault…

I just feel so sad that there are so many sick people out there…they couldn’t control themselves or discipline themselves, so all they do is blame others and spread slander and libel…talk about Go-Give: how would they feel if they were disparged like that in public?

I have realized that the most important reasons why the people on your site didn’t succeed in MK wasn’t because they didn’t treat their businesses like businesses (or their lives–or they wouldn’t have charged so much on their credit cards with no plan to sell the inventory), but the reasons are that NOTHING good can happen for people who are so evil, mean-spirited, venomous, whiney, hateful, etc.

They complain that a few directors may have misled them…but yet the way they talk about other people is atrocious!!

Most of the “facts” that they talk about are NOT facts…everything in Mary Kay is spelled out if they took the time to read…

Most of the Consultants and Directors DO sell the product…I personally sell about $300/week just on my website…I sold $200 in one day last week…quite a return on my $50/year!! Except for one of my sisters and one of my daughters, NONE of my 500+ customers is family or friends!! I guess all of those people are stupid, too…

But your people don’t believe in learning how to sell to anyone but their families or friends; they don’t believe in investing in sales aids or marketing; if they maxed out their credit cards or did anything else they thought they shouldn’t do because someone “told” them to…they have more problems than MK or anything could fix!!

If they were foolish enough to order, order, order and not sell or develop a customer base, that’s on THEM!!

Anything that is ordered has a shipping charge attached to it (shipping costs are even wrapped into what is bought at a store)…but according to YOUR people, a shipping charge is WRONG when MK does it!! That’s the kind of illogical, childish thinking that your people engage in.

In our unit and area, we have SALES contests…booking rallies, etc. We SELL the product…people I don’t even know wouldn’t order and pay for $150+ on my website if they didn’t like the product…unless, of course, they are as clueless as the people on your site are…that’s what the people on YOUR site would say…

no one put a gun to their heads to do anything, buy anything, attend anything…are they that weak-kneed?

The FDA/US government sued many companies that made false claims about one thing or another…if everything Mary Kay has said has been such lies, why hasn’t the Company been sued?

Well…you talke about us being in the “Pink Fog”…you people are wallowing in self-pity and self-hatred that you then try to blame others for YOUR failings. Most people in MK—like most people in the world, period–are good, hard-working, honest people.

I teach all of my people how to market and sell the product…those who really want to learn, that is. I have some people like some of the people here…they actually think that all they had to do was order the starter kit and then sit down and eat bon-bons and money would fall from the sky.

If people think they got “financially ruined” by Mary Kay…that’s THEIR fault…they should have had more common sense and not spent money they didn’t have with no plan to make money or daily discipline to wiork consistently. If they were too cheap to even invest in business cards and complained about putting their customers on PCP–knowing that there is competition out there no matter what the product–no wonder what ever customers they had didn’t stay.

Like I said before, it’s like spending a lot of money to set up a brick and mortar store, then rarely opening for business, or doing any advertising or marketing (they are NOT the same…); and then wondering why their store failed.

Well, I really feel sorry for people like you who have to build themselves up by pulling others down…I know that what goes around, comes around…and those of you who feel that you have to be so foul-mouthed, hateful, catty, etc….will have all of that come back to you one way or another…no matter how “cheerful” you say you are…

But you all are SO hateful…nothing anyone says to you will ever get through…

God bless you anyway…

    And what car are you in? I’m assuming you’re a Director because you said “my people”, so I’m betting you’re not in a Cadillac. $300 weeks, huh? That’s what I, as a Cadillac Director used to teach my people to sell just to get a ribbon and Star prize. It’s not a lot, actually, because it’s only $600/month gross profit. Then, sweet lady, you’ve got to subtract the Section 2 you bought for bags and samples, your website fee, your PCP gifts, your PCP mailings, and much more. So, really, you’re boasting about less than $600/month.

    Yes, there are users on here that have never been in MK, but the majority of us have been and worked VERY hard. Keep your rose colored glasses on, and we’ll catch up when we’re retirement age and see who’s doing better financially.

    $300/week x 52 weeks = $15,600. Not quite an executive income. And don’t forget the expenses: website, shipping, section 2, travel, meetings. Oh, and how much time are you spending on your “business”? Not just prepping orders, but booking, begging, dialing for dollars, meetings, etc. Hun, you’re working for peanuts.

    $300/week / 500 customers = $0.60/order on average. So, not many of your customers are ordering weekly, are they hun?

    Next time you spout off some numbers, please do some real math – not MK math. Maybe you’ll come out of the Pink Fog and become a hateful, bitter, evil, foul-mouthed, lazy loser like the rest of us. 🙂

      And she didn’t disappoint with the cliches … “… no one put a gun to their heads to do anything, buy anything, attend anything…are they that weak-kneed?” No hun, they used lies and deception like all con artists.

    “…quite a return on my $50/year!! Except for one of my sisters and one of my daughters, NONE of my 500+ customers is family or friends!! I guess all of those people are stupid, too…”

    They are stupid. ANYONE, such as yourself, can sign up and pay 50% less; or buy cheaper on
    eBay. Spread the word!

    “I teach all of my people how to market and sell the product” –

    Hang on. You turn “all your people” into your own competition instead of the customers you boast about?

    So is this about you and “your” stupid double retail customers, or is it about you recruiting customers for MKC as your own sales competition? Methinks you are confused, or something.

    Your understanding of MLM is so rudimentary, that you even isolate it to MK. That is your first mistake. You are simply a kindergartner trying to preach to college professors. Or, maybe you’re one of those liars? There are contradictions in your email I noted above. Hmmmm

    “how would they feel if they were disparged like that in public?” They probably wouldn’t enjoy it… That’s why they quit MK.

    “$50/year” Wait, what? Isn’t there a $200 every two or three months just to receive a “wholesale discount”?

    “If they were foolish enough to order, order, order and not sell” Foolish to follow company rules of qualifying for “wholesale discount”, for the car, for directorship in an oversaturated market? Maybe, but how would they know how exactly saturated the market is when there are no territories and new members are recruited constantly? Foolish for wanting to have new product to demonstrate when the company changes the product line?

    “if everything Mary Kay has said has been such lies, why hasn’t the Company been sued?” Not only I’m fairly sure it has, but that’s the thing in MLMs – not just MK – the company says nothing! Sales force – the independent contractors – make all the questionable claims. That’s so the company can’t be touched while it profits from false statements.

    “they actually think that all they had to do was order the starter kit and then sit down and eat bon-bons and money would fall from the sky” Tell that to all the people trying to fend off the desperate MLM sellers.

    She doesn’t know how the website works. She might be the first name that pops up when someone goes to order anything, and that’s possibly because she is either a director or a star consultant who put out a bunch of money for inventory.
    When I started, I went to the website and put my zip code in, and I couldn’t find myself. I found at least 50 other women though.
    She talks about advertising, but you can’t. All MK allows you to is hand out business cards and catalogs.

    Lady, you are rude and a liar. Prove ONE thing you wrote, I dare you. I’ve noticed these women never come back after their “hit-and run” email. Gee, I wonder why, lol. Ms. Red Jacket, you aren’t fooling anyone (it’s obvious you are brand new and full of [email protected]). Enjoy going into debt! I’m sure one of those directors you admire so much will be happy to bail you out when you fail. Oh wait, I forgot, they will just ignore you and badmouth you behind your back.

    Ugh…Forgot all about the section two costs till PeachyNotPink mentioned the expenses. Years ago I also wasted money on those stupid catalogues, lip stick samples etc. How foolish that I thought total strangers would believe the BS that was MK. Thank goodness a decent Director helped me return product. My own SD avoided my calls and wrote me off once I got sick.

  8. Neverpink

    I love how pointing out lies and reiterating the truth somehow makes us “foul-mouthed, hateful, catty, evil, mean-spirited, venomous, whiney [sic], hateful (twice, so I guess we’re SUPER hateful), etc”. Did I miss any?

    You know, when people know they’re being called out with the truth and don’t want to admit it, they freak out and start flailing around to defend themselves, often with vitriolic statements and name-calling. Gee, kind of like you? If you don’t like the truth, keep huffing the pink fog.

    It’ll catch up to you eventually. It always does.

    By the way, if you’re “so successful”, show us your Schedule C. Thanks~
