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

You Allowed Yourself to Be Deceived

A Mary Kay consultant tells us we’re wrong. Mary Kay isn’t that bad. It’s just a few bad people. And you were lied to because you ALLOWED yourself to be lied to.

Mary Kay is not as bad as you had imagined… It only reflects the kind of leadership you are in… Like anything under the sun, electricity can be bad cause I can kill you with that. In other ways, in can be good too, because with electricity I can now use my laptop to make a comment on this blog…hehehe Same with Mary Kay… Mary Kay is neutral… It can either be good or bad…

Yeah! I can see there are some bad practices Sales Directors and National Sales Directors that are creating this negative image… And it is Dishonesty…

I have been a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant for 4 years now.. I have friends who are Sales Directors already but I chose not to go for Directorship at this time of my life and I’ll tell you why… ?

It takes a whole lot of awareness to be a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and pray to God that your Sales Director has Integrity in doing business with you. ?

  • You are only deceived because you allowed the person to deceive you. Ouch! Yes, truth hurts and I realized this too… If you said No, there’s nothing they can do to you. If they insist, be persistent with your No, too.
  • Your Sales Director can only suggest that you Move Up but it is still up to you if you want to move up. In my case, my Sales Director encourages me to be one of them already but I said I am not ready yet. I only violate one of Mary Kay’s philosophy that is God First, Family Second, Career Third… My baby is still 3 months old so it’s a No No for now… My SD has nothing to do but to wait for me to decide when I am ready… Good thing, she respects my decision. ?
  • Directorship journey should not be forced. If you feel it inside you that you’re not ready yet. Tell your SD honestly like what I did. Because even if you passed the DIQ Level, once you become SD, you will be having a hard time keeping up with the target unit sales…hehehe
  • Fake it till you make it… I also disagree with this quote… You cannot fake something because someone might recognize you’re faking it. It’s my experience by the way. You need to be honest with your customers and friends. Also, realize that we have this so called Money Blueprint – this will tell you how much money can you keep inside your bank account or whatever… For ordinary person, like me, my money blueprint is only for ordinary person. This will take more years of personality development inside me to get a SD income without any faking or dishonesty along the process. Because, income or earnings is directly proportional to your personality development. That’s why managers or business owners are paid high. And don’t expect right away that you can sell easily your beloved Mary Kay products. It takes time to know the product and experience the product yourself. ?
  • That’s why it is important to choose your recruiter more importantly your SD, to what unit you belong. Because in my case, I really decide to transfer to a new SD because my old SD and his unit members are hypocrite I should say…hahaha!!!
  • Why Mary Kay after all this and actually there are more… Because, at the time when I was having depression only Mary Kay gave me income that I can still eat a decent food. If I go to work, no one will hire because of my depression.. And if they did, I cannot manage to stay long with my job…

    Your depression is about to get overwhelming. I feel sick that they will advantage of a new mom and baby. SMH. Come back here when you’re ready.

    p.s. The electricity comparison doesn’t work. It does way more good than harm (proven). Mary Kay has done way more harm than good (proven). In fact, it has helped almost no one.

      “You are only deceived because you allowed the person to deceive you.”

      Wow. Blame the victim. Is it an abuse victim’s fault also? It’s not the abusive spouse’s fault but the one who was abused. Mk has decades of experience conning women. They know how to live bomb, gaslight, divide, etc. They know what they’re doing. It’s their fault if someone is convinced with lies that they need inventory or need to join. The lies, manipulation, etc. That’s them.

      “Your Sales Director can only suggest that you Move Up but it is still up to you if you want to move up. In my case, my Sales Director encourages me to be one of them already but I said I am not ready yet.

      It doesn’t look like it’s a choice of if but when. She’s waiting for you to decide… she’s expecting you to do it. More manipulation that you think is your decision.
      Congrats on the baby… she’ll be pushing you soon to be a director in her time frame. And, this is time you lose of your family forever. And it’s mk first, second and third.

    “It takes a whole lot of awareness to be a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and pray to God that your Sales Director has Integrity in doing business with you. ?”

    If I’m having to pray that I have a sales director with integrity, my self-awareness is howling “Danger, Will Robinson”.

    I’m going to say something raw and fresh to get my point across. I guess those people in WI “allowed” that man to run them over, right? They “allowed” him because they chose to go to that Christmas parade.

    God bless their souls and the survivors’ bodies as they recover.

    Saying that we “allowed” being lied to and deceived is deflecting light away from the truth of the WRONGS that exist in MK. I personally had people quote scripture to me as they taught me deceptive practices in MK. I personally had people use illnesses like cancer as a way to lasso my trust in them. We had NSDs and top Directors lie about their income over & over.

    Shame on you for blaming us for what happened to us.

    That’s the thing about evil. It loves to downplay what it does and make others feel like they’re wrong.

    They allowed themselves be lied to, you say?
    OK, so how is someone supposed to learn they’re being lied to?
    They’re certainly going to need to consult with someone who does not lie to them…
    But whom? WHOM???

    Hey, I know! Pinktruth.com!

    Do you understand now, or should I explain this to you with smaller words?

    “electricity can be bad cause I can kill you with that”

    Lol, someone’s been watching “Deadly Women” reruns on Discovery ID, when she could have been out warm-chatting. Shame!
