Laura Holland will recruit you into Mary Kay, but she won’t help you if you want to leave the company.
Remember when you were being recruiting into Mary Kay and they told you that if you tried it and you didn’t like it, you could return your products to MK and get 90% of your money back? They told you it was almost no risk to you!
What they didn’t tell you is that your sales director might be like Laura Hamilton Holland. She’ll be very happy to get her commission check when you buy products from Mary Kay. But if you want to return those products, you’re on your own. She’s not going to help you with that. Why should she? It doesn’t make her any money.
On this thread in a Facebook group for MK sales directors, someone asks about a consultant returning products. Several people respond, and Laura Holland‘s brilliant advice is:
“I tell them if they want to return product they have to find out how. I’m not going to spend my time helping them take lots of money from my next commission check.”
Hint to Laura: You should help her because you recruited her into this company with promises to help her. You lied about the opportunity, she found out the truth, and now she wants to return her products. A decent person would give her the information she needs, which would take about a minute of your time.
This, my friends, is the heart of the Mary Kay business. Take, take, take. Don’t let anyone tell you that this company or its representatives uplift women or help other women or empower women. It’s a selfish pyramid scheme with everyone scrambling to take something for themselves while making it appear like they are helping others.
Here’s Laura reminding us that “Mary Kay works if you do.” No, it does not.
Also, Laura wants you to invest in her family instead of shopping online. If you shop online, you “steal” from your local community. Much like Mary Kay steals from women who are recruited?
And here’s a great little piece that Laura has on her website, totally violating all of the rules against making income claims. (And pretty much guaranteeing that you’ll move up.) And no, one out of every 4 people interviewed does not join Mary Kay.
