My letter to my team when I decided to quit Mary Kay back in 2008.
Dear Current and Former Mary Kay Team Members,
This is a very different letter than I have ever written. I have made the difficult decision to phase out of Mary Kay. Because I recruited you into Mary Kay, it is very important for me to explain why I am leaving. I feel that I have been misled in Mary Kay, and in turn I have misled all of you.
For the past two years, I have scaled back my Mary Kay business. I found myself doing less and less Mary Kay because of changes in my personal life (mainly, by becoming a mother (!) 15 months ago!). After my daughter turned one, I considered jump-starting my Mary Kay business. I began by taking an objective look at my involvement in Mary Kay, and the things that I discovered about it were very eye-opening to me. I have learned a lot, and I want to share some of it with you.
