One of our favorite Mary Kay friends, Chelsea Claytor Adkins, has taken a social media break for the last couple of months. She’s appeared in the posts of others, but her Instagram feed has been dead for two months. Chelsea’s feed used to be a treasure trove of goodness for Pink Truth. So many lies. So much fakeness. This break is a good thing for her. (She’s still active in her Facebook group where she sells her MK products that she over-ordered for no profit, though.)
The (mostly) social media break hasn’t stopped Chelsea from lying to the general public about her activities in Mary Kay, however. She recently participated in a nonsense event put on by some MK sales directors and nationals. Events like these are nothing but a money grab by the organizers. You don’t really learn anything that helps you get ahead in your fake business. Rather, you pay money to be around “Mary Kay royalty” and have a feel-good event. (And later you feel really bad because you wonder why your hard work isn’t moving you up in the pyramid and isn’t making you a livable wage.)
Chelsea was one of the speakers at the event. Lord only knows what she “taught” everyone.
And check out this recent “news” about Chelsea in a newsletter. She says she sold $100,000 of products. Nope, she ordered enough products and got enough double credit that MK pretended she had $100k of suggested retail products in her hand that she sold for full price. The reality is that she paid about $40k for products that she sold at cost…. so no profit.
Her team didn’t have $650k in sales. They had $250k or $300k in ordering of products from MK, and double credit and other promotions put them at a fake suggested retail of $650k. 80% or more of those products are sitting in basements, garages, and landfills.
I do like the little “broken sales records” part. It sounds fantastic. What it really means is she broke her own sales records…. and they weren’t even really sales. It was all about order.
Oh, and Chelsea is also a thief. Check out how she steals from Starbucks. Really? You’re that hard up for money that you have to steal a larger drink than the one you paid for????
