Our good friend Chelsea Claytor Adkins, Mary Kay sales director, is the gift that keeps on giving. She proves that you have to be neither smart nor responsible to be a successful MK director. Last year she admitted that her credit cards were maxed out and had been for years.
Despite that, she went on to throw herself a wedding that cost $35,000. But she didn’t have the money to pay for it, so she was begging for MK orders a few weeks before the affair. She was offering a 50% discount, so there was no profit in this for her, just recovering her cost on the many thousands of dollars of products she’s put on her (maxed out) credit cards over the years to “finish” goals.
Mind you, this begging for orders happened mere days before her big bachelorette weekend in Miami. She was so broke that her fellow sales directors like Jamie Taylor were helping her beg for money from people. Venmo money to Chelsea! Her bachelorette weekend is too expensive! (Also note, she wasn’t even an bachelorette as she had already been married for over 1.5 years at that time.)
Despite being broke and begging for money, Chelsea thought it was a good idea to spend $300 on her own dinner. (Yes, just her. No one else on that tab.)
And the irresponsible antics continue after the wedding. Nearly 2 years after getting married, Chelsea is still Chelsea Claytor because she has lost her birth certificate, social security card, AND marriage certificate. (I’m sure it didn’t help when she and her husband were hastily evicted from the house they pretended to own. How does she explain being a big “successful” Mary Kay director and living in her mommy’s house for the last year?)
And now Chelsea is proud to share that she has run out of gas in her car TWICE in the last 3 months.
This is they type of woman others in MK look to for business advice and mentoring. They might want to rethink that.
