Time and again, we have seen Mary Kay ruin marriages. One of the biggest reasons is that members are encouraged to lie to their husbands. Lie about how much you make. Lie about how much you work. Lie about how much you’ve spent on inventory and how much you have stockpiled. Lie about being “on target” for something, knowing you’re actually going to have to kick in hundreds or thousands of dollars of your own money to “achieve” the goal.
We’ve talked before about former MK sales director Kelly Brock and how she abruptly quit the scam, even though she was making $8,000 a month and considered a mover and shaker. (The truth is that her “business” was stagnant for years and the realistic chances of a top director actually making it to NSD are only about 50%.)
Kelly admitted in the past that her husband hated MK, although he apparently changed his mind while on the top director trip in 2019. I mean, who wouldn’t like a company that gives them a “free” trip with everything planned, paid for, and luxurious? But within a few months Kelly quit Mary Kay and started a coaching business. Recently she elaborated on how Mary Kay was hurting her marriage (see her Instagram post below):
- Buying into the “short term sacrifice for long term gain” nonsense they drill into your head
- Not communicating (likely not talking about what was really happening in MK)
The concept of Mary Kay ruining marriages is not new. We hear it a lot on Pink Truth. Yes, I know there are a lot of factors that go into a marriage ending, and it’s unfair to place the blame solely on Mary Kay. But you can’t tell me that the very nature of this “business” isn’t a huge factor for some. Very few women make money, and yet they’re told to hold on for the big payday that is coming, and to deceive their husbands to buy more time.
What’s the most insidious thing you’ve seen Mary Kay ladies encourage as it relates to deceiving husbands?
