Mary Kay sales director Megan Wilkes is very invested in proving that MK is not a pyramid scheme and if you failed, it’s your own fault. Why are you focusing on the “haters,” Megan? Doesn’t sound like an “income producing activity” to me!
First she shows us how regular companies are pyramid schemes because there is a CEO at the top and an increasing number of people at each level below that. This shows her ignorance. A pyramid scheme is not called that because of what the organization looks like. It’s called a pyramid scheme because of how it operates: constant recruiting of new people into the scheme who bring money and fund the commission checks of the upline with their inventory purchases.
And Megan has to take it further, of course. The winners in MLM are there because of their hard work, and the loser are there because they didn’t work hard enough. Tell that to all of the very hard workers here who failed at MK because it’s a pyramid scheme! 99% of people will lose because there are not enough people in the world for all of us to be successful. The majority must fail due to simple math.
I am curious why Megan has to justify her participation in MK so hard. Feeling guilty for swindling women out of their hard earned money with lies about their chances for success? Questioning why you’re a part of a scam? Trying to convince yourself that this a real job and your work is honorable?
