Check out this scheme for becoming a sales director in Mary Kay. And amazingly enough, it takes almost no time at all! Only 9.5 hours per week for six months (or less!!!). This is obviously complete fiction… have fun with it!
Another “do it fast” Mary Kay training document. Of course, if you can’t do it fast like this document demonstrates, you are likely a lazy loser who just didn’t work hard enough.
Let’s be honest. You cannot possibly build a strong selling unit in 3 months. Even in a lifetime it’s next to impossible to do. But these instructions will make it seem like “all you have to do is….”
There are so many women who wanted (and still want) to be successful with Mary Kay. They want to hold 3 classes a week. They’d love to have several women a week to legitimately interview. They’re all for “working full circle.”
Check out this blog post from a new-ish Mary Kay consultant, who is parroting all the lies that have been fed to her. She is reciting the typical list of “Mary Kay goals,” and no doubt she is telling everyone about this at the advice of her upline. You have to “name it to claim it,” right? I can only hope that she does a little Pink Truth Research and figures out the truth before she has sunk too much time and money into this losing proposition.
For a long time I was warned about this site… as many other consultants I am sure. There was actually a segment with the directors at seminar talking about it. I was in Mary Kay twice. the first time as a 18 year old part time college student/full time employee at a hospital. My mom was also a consultant twice when I was younger. Helping her in her office with the products taught me to read.
My second time in Mary Kay i came back because I wanted my discount back. When I met with my new director she laid out the inventory talk and i decided to do an 1800. Then I kept ordering because she said I needed more stuff even though I wasn’t selling anything.

This is part of my “I story” and how I became a Red Jacket.
I started out as a Mary Kay customer with a facial with my soon-to-be Sales Director. My first purchase was the Miracle Set, eye products, and Satin Lips. My SD said, “I think you would be great at this business.” A month later I had a follow-up facial and purchased Color 101. Again she said she thought I would be great in the Mary Kay.
She invited me to several breakfast events and after declining several times, I accepted her third invitation. The “MRSCAB” survey was on my plate. When I saw that I could buy my products at cost and earn a little money on the side, I signed up. Little did I know that the “rush” was about to begin.
This message was recently posted by a sales director on a board for Mary Kay directors only:
Anybody have a letter or email you send to a new DIQ’s team members? I have a new DIQ with a very weak team and I really want to encourage them to rally behind her! Thanks!
And the first thing I thought about was the ethical dilemma that this director should feel. Sending a letter to team members doesn’t make them strong. Chances are, these team members will always be weak.
This week Amy Dunlap filed an amended answer in the lawsuit Mary Kay Inc. has filed against her for alleged violations of her national sales director agreement. The most notable part of the answer and counterclaims is the portion in which Dunlap alleges that Mary Kay violates the Texas Business and Commerce Code by promoting a pyramid scheme.
Here is one Pink Truth reader’s experience with Mary Kay when she needed a job:
I joined Mary Kay because I had been one of the millions of people who had been looking for a job for two years and after many job applicat
ions and only a few interviews, I decided to join Mary Kay because I was at the end of my rope.
Well, no one actually talked me into it and I did not hear the “opportunity” story. I just went to the Mary Kay internet site and put my zip code in. Within a few hours a girl called me and invited me to a “Success Meeting” the next evening. Considering I was very vulnerable at this point (and they knew it) I probably would have signed up for the Foreign Legion.
Attention: Every person who wants to move up in Mary Kay- please read.
If you’re reading this as a consultant, please know that every word is true and meant to help you learn the other side of the MK story.
I originally started in Mary Kay Cosmetics in April of 1991 in college. What attracted me most was the dream of earning free cars, diamond rings, the glitz and glamour of Seminar. I was a very high- I, and my sales director at the time pegged me right away. She knew showing me the Seminar video tape would get me to sign right away. I did and a week later I was asking my parents fora $1,000 to get inventory. I even shared with them the line- “You can’t sell from an empty wagon” So of course, they sent me the money so I could get started.
Many recruits are snared into Mary Kay Cosmetics with the lure of executive earnings. They are told that the sky’s the limit, and the earnings are unlimited, if only you are willing to work hard enough. Sales directors tout their “highest checks” without ever mentioning all the business expenses that must be paid out of those checks, or that those are a one-time deal and don’t represent their normal commission checks.
The hard workers are the ones who make it big in Mary Kay, right? Wrong. One has to look no further than superstar Allison LaMarr, who was the fastest woman ever to make it to Mary Kay National Sales Director. Yet all of that hard work resulted in a downward spiral that culminated in Allison becoming the fastest quitter in Mary Kay history. She has flailed around since, attempting to be a personal coach, a failed participant in multi-leve marketing company MLM Bellamora, a former “executive” for multi-level marketer Seacret Direct, and is now spinning her wheels trying to build a downline as a distributor for Seacret.
