Your Name: Amy
Date Joined MK (mm/yyyy): May 2006
When Left MK or Still Active?: December 2006
Initial Inventory Purchased: $1800.00
How were you recruited?:
My neighbour had a “party” where her director sat around and wanted to learn what we knew about MK. In other words she was there to “educate” (recruit) us. I said no that night. Then I went to one of those dinner and a makeover event…once again they tried to recruit me, I still said no. Then greed got the best of me when my neighbour’s director (soon to be my director) said “but why wouldn’t you want to get your own products at half price?” Boom, signed up and with in two weeks the brilliant con artist of a director had convinced me that I would be “great in sales” (Gag!)
Memorable experience you had in MK:
I did have some fun and meet some lovely people…however it all seems so tainted now that I know it was all so fake!
My ah ha moment was while I was at a fall retreat. I was standing in a room full of women singing retarded songs while being preached at to buy more inventory! The retreat was my last MK event. I had seen the light!
What did you learn from MK?:
The best part of my MK experience was finding this website. Sharing stories and learning that I wasn’t the only smart woman that was duped by MK. I also learned more about myself…..I learned that I don’t need a pile of makeup on my face everyday to feel good and proud of myself. I also learned that I don’t need the approval of a bunch of fake-happy women cheering that I once again opened my wallet! I learned some humility and self worth to the core, not just on the outside!
What are you doing now? :
I’ve continued with my career as an R.N. in an acute care setting part-time.
I’m so happy to not have any further dealings with MK! The “fake it til you make it” phrase is so abrasive to my being. I am so happy to be real, honest and genuine! I have found many others her on the PLH forum that are just that; happy, genuine and relaxed! They are a joy to know and it’s a pleasure reading their posts!
