Facts, opinions, and the real story behind Mary Kay Cosmetics.
 

Why Badmouth Mary Kay?

I don’t know what kind of bad experience you may have had with your Mary Kay experience, but why create a site totally badmouthing about this business and the women and network marketing principle?

It may not be for everybody, but the principle of network marketing is the most humane capitalistic way to do business according to Dr. Charles King of Harvard. One is always going to run into “bad” apples in life and maybe our own failures which we are not capable of owning and place the blame on others in Mary Kay or other ventures is truly the issue at hand.

I met wonderful women in Mary Kay and although i chose to move on to another network marketing company in the health and wellness industry I would never badmouth another human being especially who offered me an opportunity to grow personally and a business to grow. The outcomes are a direct result of our own making, not someone else’s. I enjoyed my Mary Kay business and Sales Director and women very much the few years i was actively a consultant and still think it’s the best skincare in the world, but my lack of advancement was not anyone else’s fault. I learned that i let other events in my life interfere with my daily focus and so the results followed.

So your site greatly reflects on your integrity and the energy that you have put into it may certainly be more useful in creating positivity in your life and maybe instituting principles or habits that you are gifted with to blossom in your own magnificence.

I just had to respond when i stumbled on your site because there is no disgrace in any aspect of Mary Kay and sometimes keeping things that have hurt us or our own failures or better kept in our own hearts or shared privately with a trusted friend.

God bless you

    Just WOW! There is a commonality among many recent posters . . . It seems that English may be a second language. Their diatribe is laced with the typical MK infused objections and very clumsy English. Could it be that newer targets are women who are fairly recent arrivals to the US? The promise of making it in America is alluring and you can be sure the MK promise of low effort for big gains easily snares wide eyed, unknowing newbies.

    “…according to Dr. Charles King of Harvard.”

    He is an alumni of Harvard. Teaches (or did teach) Network Marketing at University of Illinois. Described as “network marketing evangelist.” Writes books, consults, leads seminars, serves as expert witness.

    https://mlmlegal.com/trialvideo.html “Kentucky v. Travelmax International.”
    “Dr. Charles King, expert witness for Travelmax. Professor, Graduate School of Business, University of Illinois at Chicago. Professor King has studied and taught on the subject of direct selling at the University-level for many years. He has published extensively in the area. He has led specialized classes on direct selling and appeared as an expert witness in federal and state cases.”

    He probably never met an MLM he didn’t like.

    “It may not be for everybody, but the principle of network marketing is the most humane capitalistic way to do business according to Dr. Charles King of Harvard.”

    So I googled Dr. King. He talks about network marketing but not about MLMs in particular.

    “Maybe Harvard doesn’t teach network marketing, but in April of 1997, Dr. Charles King gave a lecture about network marketing at Harvard to the Harvard Law School Office of Student Life Counseling, the Harvard Association of Law and Business, and the Harvard Business School Marketing Club.”

      Network marketing is just another term for MLM.

      MLM evangelists use other terms to obfuscate what they’re really espousing, because MLM has such a bad rep. Network marketing, peer marketing, social marketing, warm marketing, etc., etc.

    If it was something that affected me and me only, sure. But if it is something that continually hurts thousands of other people, no, nope, not happening. Every-one needs to know about problems in their work, social or family environment.

      Sounds like something I could pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to hear from Kelly Brock or Roya Mattis. If I don’t have that much credit available, I could probably get the low-rent version from Kimberly Perkins.

    Hold on one sec. I need to laugh my butt off. 😂

    Whew. Okay. That was funny. There is nothing “humane” about duping people to pay for a 1099 contract sales and recruiting position under the guise of it being their own small business. It’s capitalism, yeah, but humane? Please.

    And another one STUMBLES onto the site! Tracy needs to fix the internet leading here because it seems to cause a lot of stumbling and accidental arrivals.

    Publishing FACTS is not “badmouthing”. If you don’t like what we’re saying about Mary Kay and MLMs, change the way they work.

    Change happens when people open their mouths. I grew courage to leave Directorship behind when I started reading others’ stories on here and realizing I wasn’t alone. All the sacrifices I made to get where I was were also sacrificed by others.

    I guess we’re never supposed to talk about bad restaurants or movies to avoid, correct?

    I’ll wait for your prompt reply.
