The key to understanding MLM is to look behind the curtain. It is one big fraud being perpetrated by the owners, executives, and pyramid-toppers for their own personal benefit.
In Mary Kay, national sales director (NSD) is the highest position and is supposed to represent executive-level earnings. But as we’ve seen time and again, it’s only an illusion. Out of the 200-ish NSDs, only about 24 make $200,000 or more in gross commissions (before chargebacks and business expenses).
But in order to keep recruiting, you have to keep the illusion going with false earnings claims. Kristin Sharpe has a strong social media presence, filled with bits about her lavish life that you should envy. She’s the daughter of retired NSD Connie Kittson. So there’s lots of lifestyle on display between the two of them.
A couple of years ago, Kristin and her husband Courtney bought a piece of land next to Connie’s house with the intention of building their dream home. That fell through, allegedly due to zoning issues. They sold the land and now they’re excited to announce that they’ve bought a house: Shady Grove Cottage!
What could we possibly criticize about this? If we’re saying bad things, we must be nasty jealous people who can’t be happy for Kristin and her family. LOL
Well the truth is that Kristin and Courtney did not buy the house. Connie Kittson bought the house.
Why on earth would Connie pay $760,000 for a house for Kristin???? After all, Kristin is in the Gold Circle!
Sorry to burst your bubble. $150,000 in gross commissions isn’t enough to buy a $760,000 house. After business expenses and chargebacks, Kristin probably makes $100,000. That qualifies her to buy a $300,000 house, not a $760,000 house.
And there you have the truth, my friends. Behind the curtain, Kristin doesn’t even own a house, much less a big fancy one like Shady Grove Cottage. Here are some pictures of the house for your enjoyment:
