The big selling point for Mary Kay or any MLM is the financial freedom you can have. Despite the fact that 99% of MLM participants lose money, they still crow about how much you can make. A tiny fraction of the participants make it to the “big money” levels. (See here how more than half of sales directors make less than $16,800 per year.)
But once you get to the NSD level… the pinnacle of success… the huge money…. haven’t you got it made? Why would you have any debts? Aren’t you living the dream and able to be debt-free because you make so much money?
No. Kristen Sharpe has been an NSD for more than 5 years. She brags about making more than $2 million in commissions with Mary Kay. And yet she still has debts and has a goal this year to become debt-free. So much for financial freedom!
