Chelsea’s Team Did Not Sell $602,000 of MK Products
Why do I have to expose this over and over? You’d think the Mary Kay ladies would eventually start telling the truth about their pretend businesses, but no.
One of our favorites, Chelsea Adkins, encouraged her team and customers to “crown the trip.” In other words, order enough products (whether needed or not) so that Chelsea and her husband could go on the top director trip to Barcelona this fall.
One of the gimmicks they use when they’re trying to “finish a goal” is doing “____ orders to go!” The orders are typically $100 or $200 orders from a customer. In Chelsea’s case, she was doing 50% off to entice people to order. Which means no profit for her, and likely a loss because of packaging/shipping costs, credit card interest for her maxed out credit cards, gas for deliveries, and other supplies.
As usual, Chelase weirdly brings God into this, as if somehow He is worried about MK ladies and their pretend businesses. (Remember when God told Chelsea she’d be a national sales director by January 2022?) So this time “God told her not to” look at the number she needed to get to $650k fake retail to make it on the trip.
The goal was not achieved by June 30, but Chelsea said they had a few more days to get it.
I have no idea whether the company extended deadlines because not enough directors reached the goals, or if she did something shady to buy herself a few days.
But it was not to be.
The big goal was missed (much like “million” was missed in 2021and the trip goal was missed in 2022), even after it was reduced from $1 million.
But of course… Chelsea still has to lie. She’s proud of her team for selling $602k in the past 12 months. No, they did not sell $602k. They ordered somewhere between $250k and $280k wholesale (depending on how much double credit Chelsea received throughout the year). Much of that product was never sold to a customer. A lot of Chelsea’s personal products were sold at cost. The $602k figure would assume that all products were sold at full suggested retail and that there wasn’t any double credit. Complete fiction.
Chelsea cried big tears for not making the trip.
But let’s go back to some weird business about God telling Chelsea things. Now she didn’t fail because she didn’t work hard enough. She failed because God decided she should in order to teach her a lesson. Or something.
