Don’t Let People Who Quit Influence You

There are some half-truths and a lot of mistruths and misinformation all rolled into one big convuluted mess on this site. Yes, sales is hard. Contacting your network of people is hard. Investing money you don’t have into a business is hard. Putting time and money into a dream for a better life for years is hard.

Conversely, working a low-paying, dead end job is hard, being broke is hard, being held back in a job due to race, sex, color or age or being let go or not getting a job due to those factors is hard too. Living a life of lack is hard. Staying in bad or dead end marriages or relationships is hard. Living with bad health due to overwhelming, long term stress is hard too.

That’s why women buy into a dream of a better life only to face ignorance, gossip, slander and non support from other women.

God forbid that you purchase products or services from a friend and help them when you can support a wealthy corporation with a CEO with his 20 cars and 7th vacation home.

Bottom line, people should do what they are willing to persist and push through. Push through critics, haters, and short-sighted fools. Keep going and don’t quit. Don’t listen to people who earn less than you. It’s better to try and fail (and get up to try again) than regret that you didn’t try at all due to letting people who quit influence you.

    “Don’t listen to people who earn less than you?”

    The majority of income statements released by MLM companies about 99.9% of people who work in a dead end/low paying job still make more than the MLM Hun…..🤔.

    Also my hh makes less than most of our friends do, yet we seem to be a bit happier than them. Maybe it just comes from being able to budget and knowing that trying to keep up with the neighbors and friends is a waste of time and causes stress.

    “God forbid that you purchase products or services from a friend and help them when you can support a wealthy corporation with a CEO with his 20 cars and 7th vacation home.”

    And from where did your friend BUY those products to sell you? Why, she bought them from a wealthy corporation with a CEO who owns 20 cars and 7 vacation homes. SHE is the one supporting THEM.

      And that friend’s ultimate goal isn’t even to resell her already bought MLM product to you, it’s to recruit you. Just ask upline and the corporation.

      Once again, some silly dupe is oblivious as to how MLM really works.

    “Investing money you don’t have“

    Do you even understand what you wrote here? Not only is doing this “hard”, it’s unwise to say the least. Yet that’s what your MK upline suggests you do. Get a loan, max out your credit cards, borrow from family, spend your spouse’s earnings (from a REAL job that you talk down).

    It’s not only hard, it’s also not smart.

    A job pays the bills. MK simply leaves you with debt and a house full of unsellable yellowing products. People should check out companies like MK to make sure they aren’t pyramid schemes. We are trying to warn women that MK creates debt. MK rarely allows women to succeed. Dreaming just brings, sadness, fear, debt and a lot of upset relatives saying I told you so.

    “Don’t listen to people who earn less than you.”

    I listened to the people who earned less than I was projected to be paid, and they told me the the real story of the company. I ended up not working there because the workplace culture sounded horrible.

    It makes far more sense in the 2020’s to fully investigate a company especially as there are so many more resources available to help. Just relying on those who are only prepared to show the good side and only the good side just makes me more suspicious of what’s happening behind the door.

    To err is human, but to remain in error is stupid. Think about it!

    I don’t regret not trying Mary Kay the same way I don’t regret not trying crack, playing in traffic, or sticking a fork in a light socket.

      I don’t regret not trying hooking to make money, and not doing initiation to join a street gang to make friends and belong.

      I thought about becoming a hooker, but a former prostitute WHO QUIT warned me about the dangers. Then there was this former gang member who did terrible things and warned me not to join. He QUIT, and now has a website educating others of the dangers of joining a gang. Their INFLUENCE saved me from that life.

      (Not really, but hopefully the point is made)

    Once again, it is assumed that PTer’s “quit” from not getting results or not working hard enough to “push through”.

    You really have not grasped the point, have you? Women here have quit Mary Kay because they found out that what they were doing was manipulative, frought with misrepresentation, and over time, proved to be abusive to women’s emotional health and financial stability. In short, we grew a conscience and refused to go quietly into the night, prefering, instead, to warn others about what we found. You have to get pretty high up on the MK food chain to express what we have written about here. Does that not inform whether we worked hard or “pushed through”?
