Mary Kay ended the seminar year on June 30 with 32 “million dollar units.” Nsd Rebecca Evans wrote on social media:
Our MK year just ended with 32 “$1,000,000 Directors.” That is almost triple from last year AND we broke the 1998 record of 28 Million $ Directors.
Contrary to what MK and its leaders would have you believe, a million dollar unit does not mean $1 million in product sales. This “honor” has nothing to do with sales. It has everything to do with ORDERING.
If you look hard enough, you will find that $1 million is properly called “estimated retail production” in Mary Kay. That means they look at the wholesale orders of the unit and pretend all the products were sold at full suggested retail. The orders likely totaled around $450,000, there was “contest credit” added to it (special promotions where MK pretends you ordered more, using cute names like “double credit”), and then that number was doubled (because wholesale x 2 = suggested retail).
Are you tired of the shenanigans yet?
You’ll see below how MK ladies pretend there are “millions of dollars in sales.” They know in their hearts that the vast majority of those products go unsold. Among the many lies in MK, this is one of the most obvious because everyone knows the unit clubs and the court of sales are based on orders and NOT sales….. and yet they keep talking about sales.
And the other think Rebecca Evans claimed in her social media post:
AND our #1 National Sales Director earned over $220k in June! Yes in ONE Month!
Gloria Mayfield Banks didn’t “earn” $220,000. She was PAID $220k by people in the downline. The money was transferred up the pyramid from women who can’t afford it and won’t be able to sell the products, to a woman who is a master manipulator. That’s nothing to celebrate.
For fun, I included a post by our old friend Gail Scott about the “faces of today’s Mary Kay.” Of course it features our good friends Jamie, Chelsea Claytor, and Megan Wilkes. For sure, these ladies will provide entertainment for us for years to come. (Fun fact: Back in 2006 when we got started, Gail Scott was really upset with us for existing. And now, 15 years later, she still hasn’t “promoted herself” in Mary Kay. Same old grind of trying to keep that MK car and dialing for dollars at the end of each month.)
