Mary Kay really works, but a recruiter is blaming her recruits for causing her to file bankruptcy. Does Mary Kay really work?
I find it ironic that the critics of Pink Truth say we shouldn’t blame any of our Mary Kay experiences on anyone else. That we were completely in control of everything, and if we believed all the lies we were told, too bad!
This email exchange shows a fully brainwashed Kaybot doing exactly that… blaming someone else for her problems.
Now, I don’t really care who this woman does or doesn’t blame for her problems in general. But I do have a problem with the guilt trip she is trying to lay on consultants to stop them from returning their products from Mary Kay. They’re “costing” her too much money! But I bet she didn’t mind when those commission checks were on their way in the door!
Witness this email exchange…
The consultant, writing to Pink Truth:
This is probably not the type of email you were expecting (it’s not hilarous training emails from my director) But it’s the sad few emails we wrote to each other. She actually stepped down from being a director a few months ago. From advice from PT friends I have cut off all contact with her. I understand that she is hurt and I pray that maybe she will find the truth. She already knows about PT so that is why I didn’t write her about it. Thanks for reading! If you have time that is! I am still healing, I had no idea she would be so agressive and it still hurts a lot, since she was my best friend here (it’s my husband’s hometown) I have no ther friends. but I know I will find a few! Thanks!
The email from consultant to recruiter (who lost directorship a couple of months before this email):
I know that you were saying that you guys were struggling financially, well, so are we. So after much turmoil and heartache, since I feel terrible that you will get chargebacks, I decided I would send last year’s product back, I wasn’t sure how much of it I had left, but it’s so significant it will help us out hugely. We had very little to our name the day I called the company to see how much we could send, and it worried me that we had so little in the bank. I had not paid back the company the couple hundred I still owed them from [my recruit’s] chargebacks. I was so relieved that we will now be okay! So I thought I’d let you know once I made my definit decision of what I would do. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend and for understanding our situation.
Recruiter’s email back:
I thought you couldn’t send product back once you had been in Mary Kay a full year??? Honestly [consultant], you are the third consultant to tell me this, this week alone. I can not afford all the chargebacks you guys are costing me, we are trying desparately to sell our house, but if we can’t, we may have to claim bankruptcy.
With your product sent back , it will add to owing in the thousands, can you not run a sale, hold some classes, and maybe think about a part time job? I definitely understand what it is like to be in a hard place financially, but this will devatate us, and I just want you to know the truth,
Consultant’s response to recruiter:
My husband and I prayed about it, and we realized that taking advantage of the 90% buyback guarantee from Mary Kay was in our family’s best interest. If it is so devastating it might be a good idea to possibly send your product back to the company too, that way you won’t have to pay for the chargebacks and you’ll get some money back. Also, I researched and found out that you won’t actually get chargebacks till april. You could probably recruit someone before then and if she gets inventory then the problem is solved!
Go for it, I would never send back my product. I love the discount I get personally, plus all I have to do is go hold a skin care class or run a sale.. l will owe thousands once you return product, so I guess I am going to have to hold lots of skin care classes just to pay the bills off. You are the third consultant telling me this week, and I can’t expect you to understand what it feels like really. [Husband] and I are finished crying over this though! I feel betrayed, honestly, and I would never ever ever do this to [upline] or [upline].
I will never recruit again, this has hurt me too badly, and I don’t ever want to deal with it again. I am continuing to sell because I enjoy making 50% for not putting much effort in. April huh? Only two months before the baby is born, what a great gift,
I hope life deals you many blessings.
Wow! Even a sarcastic wish about life “dealing” her “blessings.” Mary Kay is such a con game, full of manipulation like I have never, ever seen before. Things like this just take the cake.
