How were you recruited? Tell us all the details.
I was recruited because I was told I could help bring in an income of 400.00 a month EASY! I’m married and have two kids and sometimes we just get by. My recruiter came by my house because I had ordered some products and I asked her some questions about how it works. She smooth talked me about the “sisterhood” the “support” – how it grew her faith. How Mary Kay says we are successful if we put our FAITH first Family second Career third. Blah blah blah! What’s funny (not really at all) is as soon as you choose your family over your “career” its all “you need to fill out a weekly plan sheet so you can see just how much time you have for Mary Kay in your life.”
Do you have a memorable experience from your time in Mary Kay? If so, please tell us about it.
Sure- Stress! How am I going to make star this quarter? How am I going to pay the sitter for watching the kids all day and all I sold was a cleanser? Not to mention the HUGE fight I got in with my director at seminar… The feeling of abandonment from my “sisterhood” when I decided to stop making MK a priority in life and started becoming the wife and mother I should have been all along!
What are you doing now?
Being a wife and mom! Trying to recover from the shame and guilt I feel for getting so caught up in this Pink lifestyle. Trying to move on with life with a renewed sense of what my true purpose is without a silver tongued snake whispering in my ear.
Feel free to include any additional comments here:
I think is abhorrent that MK seeks out and targets stay at home moms, single moms, women who have low self worth, women who are lonely. All with the promise of becoming a better person, helping people and earning a meaningful income. I know I’m not alone but when I look back at this last year and some months I’m sickened at the person I became. I let myself become swept up in these lies and full of so much hope that they would actually come to fruition if I just worked harder. If I just did better. I got caught up in the gossip. I became pushy with my team members and spread the lie that they needed to examine their time and find it was easy find the time for MK. I was ready to pay any price it cost to help earn that EASY 400.00 a month. I’m beginning to like myself again but for a while I could barely stand myself. I HATE MK. I hate what it did to me and the person I use to be. I hate that it almost destroyed my marriage and all I got were sideways glances and the silent treatment form those who were suppose to be my friends. I am thankful for websites like this were I can get it all out and not have to keep it all in anymore. I just wish I had found it a little sooner!
