With things tanking for Mary Kay Inc., and more importantly, for MK consultants and directors, everyone is “revamping” their “customer page” on Facebook. I love how the language is so similar between all of these women. It must be standard content from MK Inc.
How long do you think the MK ladies can tread water with these virtual parties and tutorials? Let’s be honest. We know the money is made on initial inventory orders. How successful do you think they will be with recruiting and front loading over the next month?
I’m pretty sure they’re all under Lynnea Tate’s national area.
Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?
What are they expecting to achieve by this? I don’t get it. Are they trying to pretend to be influencers?
And, why are these scammers calling themselves a “beauty” and “fabulous”? Barf
For fun, I’ve taken the liberty to correct to more appropriate titles: “The Perilous Palace” and “A Cringed Beauty”
My reply meant for all. Hate when I do that.
This could change MK from “home party” based sales to just online sales. No need for consultants to schlep all that crap around and go into the money hole.
“Unhinged” is not a good adjective in this case, Brook. Yikes!
One of our local gals posted a big long thing about MK using their new distribution center to produce hand sanitizer and how fab they were and the obligatory “I love my company!” Did anyone else see that over the last few days and is it really true?
Yes it’s true. Sigh. I just don’t have enough time to post about all the nonsense.
“Mary Kay employees have moved into swift action”
The operative word here is EMPLOYEES.
Anheuser-Busch is doing the hand sanitizer thing as well – they announced it last week. Somehow I think they probably have much better manufacturing and distribution facilities than MK. (They’ve also canned water for disaster relief in the past. They know how it’s done.) I think I’m much rather have a bottle of sanitizer with the AB logo on it than the MK one!
Noo, I don’t want mk to be saved by the money they’ll receive for this.
how much will they charge?
they act like they will be giving it out
Hey, y’all! I’ve gone and revamped my comment to make it more about my life, my journey, and how seriously wonderful I am! Come on over and take a look and learn about me, me, ME!!! Because I know you are all as fascinated about me as I am about myself! I mean, who wouldn’t be?
Gosh, but I’m great! Kisses!
(I sure hope the sarcasm came through, there, because I was laying it on pretty thick. Stay safe, everyone.)
Ugh yes, I saw that. Do they not know that the government just signed the Defense Production Act to give the government more power to steer production by private companies and try to overcome shortages in masks, ventilators and other supplies. This is exactly why I despise this company.. why are they always praising it to others like it’s the second coming of Christ. It’s a business (shady as hell) but still they employ, you work, they pay you. Like a million others in this country.
Is there a reason that they are not mentioning MK?
This is awesome, they have to deep dive away from the company as a guise to sell and recruit. Not going to work because it swings back to be a MK consultant when you think they are your new friend. This is a death knell for MK when they can’t bring themselves to be upfront on who they are representing and then they want you to join up. Circular and swirling the drain.
PS. The gal has lovely hair and the pink tint well I thought we were supposed to rock it while we are younger, this is not it. May I suggest to her a pink beehive?
MK does have rules about how you’re allowed to use the MK trademark and such. I think, however, it’s more a choice to leave it unbranded for a) potential social media influencer purposes and b) to not turn off people who don’t like MK (get them in and interested first before they know).
Thank you for the top level operational point of view.
I love how directors always say that inventory is like having an ATM in your house. Just sell something for instant income!! With people furloughed and unemployed for the foreseeable future, I bet that “inventory ATM” is going to be turned into a blue refund check as consultants throw in the towel, ship back their inventory and use those funds for groceries and rent.
hahahahah! Inventory is an atm in your house.
i got belly laughs. thank you.

I’ll take ‘not at all’ for $500, Tracy.
