How to Recruit the Next Generation

Written by The Scribbler

This document isn’t necessarily a script, but a spotty transcript of a speech given to NSDs.  It is a game plan discussing how to recruit younger people into Mary Kay.  It talks about their characteristics; critical information that will no doubt be exploited later on!

Friends, if you have daughters of any age or know teenage girls in your neighborhood, drop a few nuggets about what this company does to its women.  Young girls are not stupid – like sex education, these girls need to know from YOU before they learn the “facts” from a hot-to-recruit Mary Kay Consultant!  It is crucial that we guard the next generation of women from the prison of emotional hurt, manipulation, and credit card debt!      Continue reading “How to Recruit the Next Generation”

Sneaky Mary Kay Recruiting Tactics

pink-sneaky-mary-kayWritten by The Scribbler

I used to work with a bubbly, perky 20-something in our church nursery. She and I laughed together, chit-chatted together, and I thought it could be the beginnings of a terrific friendship. She invited me out for coffee and said she wanted to get to know me better. “How nice!” I thought.

But in the back of my brain I recalled that she was into MK. So I logged onto Pink Truth and browsed the “secret” stuff, like now MK commandos want you to sit on their right side and so forth. When I met this gal for coffee, she was decked out in full MK regalia, right down to the shiny black high heels and fashionably tied pink scarf, her bag o’ tricks spread out on the table in front of her.

Tips For a Struggling Mary Kay Husband

ImageWritten by BlessedOne

This piece was written by the husband of a former Mary Kay consultant who was involved with MK for many years. He offers his advice for other husbands, boyfriends, and family members.

This is the most important thing you can do. This is where you must invest the majority of your effort and resources. Take every opportunity to let her know she is as vital and needed by you (and your family) today as she was the day you married her. Be ready to court her all over again. She’s worth it. You be the source of her recognition. Be the loudest source of her applause. Be her number one fan club. Shower her with your affection and attention. Perhaps this MK crisis is a God sent reminder that we’ve not done this enough. Continue reading “Tips For a Struggling Mary Kay Husband”

Tripling Your Income With Mary Kay (Yeah, Right)

If you had been lucky enough to be in my Mary Kay unit, at some point you would have sat down with me one-on-one to go over the following document. I liked to do it during new consultant orientation, while you still had stars in your eyes about Mary Kay and thought that the sky was the limit in this business. I wanted to put big money potential in front of you BEFORE you experienced difficulties in recruiting, so you’d have a goal to work toward.

What I didn’t tell you was the reality behind this little document. I mean, why be negative? It was my job to be a good coach and see the potential in everyone. I didn’t want to stand in the way of your success, even though it wasn’t happening for me. This business is what you make it! Continue reading “Tripling Your Income With Mary Kay (Yeah, Right)”

But It Worked Before!

If you had success once in Mary Kay, you can have it again, right? You keep drawing on that one positive experience to tell yourself that it can be done again.

There is a joke in my family about how lousy my coffee is. I have had many years to perfect a simple pot of coffee, but there is over a 95% chance that the pot I make this morning will suck. (Sorry to shock you with my language so close to sunrise). It will make no difference to me however that this morning’s brew will make my tongue curl up and my taste buds scream. Because, I will make another pot tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow after that. Why? Continue reading “But It Worked Before!”

Mary Kay Prayer Warriors All Across the Globe

Written by Raisinberry

The Devil has come against us in the form of NEGATIVE BLOGS to destroy our Mary Kay world! Or has he? It is interesting how people have different perspectives about things.

We all know, that nobody knows everything and concerning things of faith, many thoughts abound. In fact, theologians routinely sit on opposite sides of the same coin, staunch in their positions and unbending in any way. Continue reading “Mary Kay Prayer Warriors All Across the Globe”

“Profit Level” Inventory in Mary Kay

You’ve heard this Mary Kay lie many times before: $3,600 wholesale on your shelf is considered “profit level” inventory, and until you get to that level, you shouldn’t be taking any profits for yourself out of your “business.”

Realistically speaking, there is very little profit in Mary Kay to begin with. But this “concept” twists the financial aspect even further and uses faulty logic and bad math to convince consultants to place large initial orders.

Here’s how the Mary Kay explanation goes: Continue reading ““Profit Level” Inventory in Mary Kay”

Written by MaryKayExploitsWomen

Directors feed everyone so much bologna about Mary Kay and how great it is.  But did you know that every line of every script has an underlying message?  Everything a director tells you and/or a potential recruit can be very easily translated into its true meaning within a split second.

Here are some of the most common lines and their actual meanings: Continue reading “Translating Mary Kay Director Lingo: What They Say Versus What They Mean”

My Letter to my Mary Kay National Sales Director

Written by Pink_Plunge

I wrote this letter to my nsd as I was leaving Mary Kay. I was hoping for honest answers to my questions and concerns. As you probably expected, I didn’t really get any.

I am writing this email to you to explain why I have decided to quit Mary Kay. You’ll notice an attached word document that is a letter written to my team members, customers, friends and family members to explain my story and how I’ve reached the conclusion to end my Mary Kay career. I thought I’d share the letter with you too, just to make sure that you are FULLY AWARE of how I feel and how things have changed for me! PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT!! My team members and I would really appreciate being HEARD!! Continue reading “My Letter to my Mary Kay National Sales Director”

Counting the Real Cost of Mary Kay

Written by Raisinberry

If you have been in Mary Kay for any length of time you are aware of a typical meeting involving a “scoreboard line up” of top sellers in your unit. The count up begins for what was sold, and generally anybody over $300 gets to come down front and tell their sales success. $300 a week in sales is supposedly a Sapphire Star Consultant, provided she ordered 1800.00 wholesale during the quarter.

The problem is, there are very few real business women in Mary Kay. Your Director will have you split your sales 60/40 as if that ratio has anything to do with actual accounting. You will note that even a weekly summary sheet does not track your real expenses and real profit. No, you are to record your 60/40 split as if the number remaining from the subtraction of your restocking amount reflected your actual profit. Nothing could be further from the truth.
