This story was submitted by a reader of Pink Truth. If you think the part of the story about cheating is unusual, think again. Mary Kay supporters will tell you the cheaters are few and far between, and they weren’t following the Mary Kay Way. Wrong! Cheating is the rule, not the exception. I have yet to find a sales director who made it to that position without signing up friends or family who didn’t really want to be a part of Mary Kay. They all do it so they can move up the pyramid.
I thought perhaps now is the best time to tell my story as I am still sorting out the end of my MK world. I won’t lie. I have moments where I still think about being an awesome Director, and through being a good, honest person, winning that caddy, the jewelry, the huge checks. I still find myself checking out the star consultant catalog thinking, well, maybe… I even have to admit, I am curious what next years Court jewelry will be.
It started for me way back… I joined the unit of a woman that many adore. She’s been a million dollar sales director multiple times in her over 20 years. But those of us in her unit found out really quickly how just absolutely selfish she is. My inventory call came pretty fast, right behind the agreement where I was told NOTHING about inventory. I didn’t buy any.
