How exciting! Jamie Taylor finally made it to NSD after finding recruits to push people through to DIQ, helping to fund initial inventory purchases to get enough production, and pushing women to pay their way to director and car driver.
And if you’re in Jamie’s area (or you’re simply a wanna-be), you can pay $50 to $100 for the privilege of attending her debut. What happens at a debut? Lots and lots of fluff. Go to a hotel or event venue, see a stage with rah rah and sales directors and national sales directors. Get hyped up to join Mary Kay or to purchase more inventory if you’re already in.
The sole purpose of an event like this is to get more women to sign up and buy more inventory, all of which benefits the upline. You will see all the fakery on display: All of the talk of big money (while the truth is that these directors are struggling to make ends meet), the lie that it’s about hard work (it’s simply about recruiting enough warm bodies with credit cards), the nonsense about NSDs being financially secure for life (when the reality is that half of the NSDs don’t even make $10k per month).
Our member Mountaineer95 had the following wise words to say about the whole ridiculous NSD debut….
This entire scenario DOES NOT EXIST in the real world. Never. Anyone OUTSIDE of MLM who gets promoted IN A LEGIT COMPANY (to an also legit, real-world title like that of ‘National Sales Director’) has truly earned a spot atop their own corporate “pyramid”, and the victory wasn’t achieved by how much of their corporation’s products they’re able to BUY themselves (and stash in their basements only to run “inventory liquidation sales” several months later) regardless of if they ever SOLD any to end consumers.
In what instance does a person get promoted and everyone below them in their corporate structure would be invited to a celebration of this promotion but at full cost to the attendees? I’ll beat the horse for a minute and remind our readers (including you, Jamie, and your followers) that this is an advertised celebration of a top-level (read; executive level) MK Director to the highest level of nsd. An EESD (what Jamie was prior I think) is already a coveted and rare title in MK, so Jamie already HAD TO HAVE BEEN earning an “executive income”; the nsd title and its benefits are icing on the cake.
SO WHY ON EARTH DOES SHE *CHARGE* HER DOWNLINE TO EVEN ATTEND HER EVENT?? She’s making the biggest bucks available in MK (a company responsible for employing the most female pa earning over 100k, per fake and lost research) but STILL expects you (as in you who placed orders to help her get there) to PAY FOR A TICKET to her “inauguration” party?
Do you not see how ridiculous that is? Beyond ridiculous, it should be HIGHLY offensive to you.
This is NOT normal in the real business world. There is NO instance (outside of other MLM) in which this would happen. And yet these newbies, who think they own a small business but in fact own NOTHING (another post for another day and has been discussed extensively here) choose to use their money (possibly their kids’ lunch money; their rent money; money that they truly needed for other things) to travel to and attend this “coronation” of sorts for a woman who will possibly make dozens of thousands of dollars per year from this “promotion”, but won’t directly share ANY of that fancy income with these people who got her into that position to begin with.
There is NOTHING regal or heroic about Jamie’s “promotion”. I can spell it out easily: she and her underlings bought enough makeup for her to move up the MLM ladder. It DOES NOT MATTER that much (if not most) of that product remains unsold; MK Corp doesn’t crown NSDs based on what the downline actually sells. All that matters to MK Corp is that the NIQ and the people who make up the pyramid layers below her ORDERED enough WHOLESALE product to elevate her to her current pedestal.
You people who are in Jamie’s area and/or direct downline: what income did you think she was making during her last year as a director? What did she allude to as her income? What do you assume she’s making now as an NSD? Regardless of what your assumptions are, WHY ON EARTH does she “need” to charge YOU a substantial ticket price just to attend the celebratory party about her huge promotion?
WHY ON EARTH WOULD AN “ELITE EXECUTIVE” WHO HAS JUST ACHIEVED THE HIGHEST PINNACLE OF HIGH SIX FIGURE EARNINGS WITHIN YOUR COMPANY NEED OR EXPECT YOU TO PAY FOR *YOUR* TICKET AND *YOUR* TRAVEL TO ATTEND THE CELEBRATION OF *her* accomplishments?
*sigh*…the people who need to read this won’t, and con will go on…
