Canadian Hate Mail – June 7
« on: Yesterday at 03:23 PM » Quote

—————————————————–
This one hails from north of the border. Canadians love Pink Truth too!

Ladies it’s true that misery loves company…this site is proof of that. If only you would have put this kind of desire into your businesses that you are putting on this site, perhaps you wouldn’t feel so “hard done by”. I’m a director and yes I actually SELL the product and yes my 12%commission cheques are on average $500-$700 (sometimes more) a month. I feel terrible that you feel wronged by the company, and there are days where I feel the same way you do; it’s only human nature. Isn’t it true that when we feel like quitting we should do one more class? Try it. No I don’t agree with directors pushing large inventory orders. I believe we should do what’s right for consultants and love them where they want to be. It’s up to each individual person to keep their business going, not rely on their teams.

I got some good advice the other day, when I was feeling a bit low, as we all do sometimes. Look yourself in the mirror and call yourself a coward. @*&%*$@!! Ok I heard that. Get over yourself and get back on the wagon or simply recognize that this business isn’t for you.

Sincerest best wishes to you all. I hope you find what’s missing in your lives.

On a positive note, at least she was civil. She didn’t call us all a bunch of LOOSERS. She actually reiterated something that ALL kaybots need to embrace – “simply recognize that this business isn’t for [everyone].” If all kaybots everywhere would come to that understanding, instead of trying to recruit anything with a pulse and instead sell their product as a first-line income source, then MK might be tolerable (I said *might*, but that’s still debatable).

Ok, ducking now

Ummm…hello! Miss Director, don’t you realize that you are not making any money? If I made $100 a week at McDonald’s, I’d make almost as much as you—of course not less your unit deductions. Stop spending your time and energy on something so wasteful as MK. The Company doesn’t give a rat’s ___ about you, because you are not making them enough cash. Look what they did to RDB and she makes far more than you. Seriously, I hope you find a new position, that will appreciate you far more than MK will.

Is this 5-700 us or canadian dollars? Yes, she was a little civil but her comments about cowards did not get past my kaybot buster eyes! Her light but oh so sweet digs at us didn’t go unnoticed either. We are not miserable, happier now since we left mk, we did put the same if not more desire to succeed into our business, we did sell the products, get over yourself lady. You know, I could go on and on and on about her little sticky digs, but let it suffice to say—she is sooo new.

“Misery loves company”
We are not miserable… we are so perfectly happy without MK that we feel the need to “pay it forward” and help others get out of the company as well, so they can lead better lives financially, and be able to spend more time with their families as we do. We are doing a good deed here by trying to get people out of the scam, out of debt, and out of the deceit.
Thank you for being honest about your income. Have you stopped to think about how pitiful it is? Really, it isn’t worth it. You could be making so much more money, and spending more time with your family at the same time (or doing other productive things with your life if you don’t have a family).

Civil, sure, but also boring! Her hate mail lacks the usual punch and confrontation. Methinks if she puts the same amount of effort into her business as she does her hate mail, we could be seeing her in PT pretty soon…

Um – $500-$700/month (BEFORE expenses) for what I know is more than 40 hours a week and living in constant panic/dread about production. Also, having to think that MK is IN you and it is what you are – therefore you are thinking about it 24/7. You never get to turn off.

Thank goodness I never achieved this prestigious position.

For the amount of work that you have to put in as a director, $500-$700 CDN a month ($450-$660 US) is NOT a lot of money.

Well, at least she had to cajones to tell us how much her checks are.

Um, my 17-year-old son is making $625/month working PART-TIME this summer at a clothing store in the mall. He doesn’t have to carry inventory, make deliveries, or drum up business by stalking every person he comes into contact with. He just shows up, folds a few t-shirts, unlocks a dressing room, stocks some shelves and collects a paycheck. I think I’d rather have HIS job!!

$500-700 a month, eh?
What are your expenses each month?
How much money is left after you pay your expenses, including taxes?
And how many hours a month do you “work your business”? Please include phone time, conference calls, party prep, delivery, meetings, etc.

How much per hour do you really bring home?

So, is she trying to convince us that $500-700 a month is excellent income? OK, she also said she SELLS the product. Even if she has a bunch of customers and sells $2,000 a month (which I HIGHLY doubt she does) that would still only be an extra 1,000 in her pocket. Add that to the $700 she claims she gets in her commission check and that’s whopping $1,700 a month. Woo Hoo – is THAT supposed to be some kind of executive income?

Ok, but does your MK career make you happy? If you had to survive on your check alone, could you?

Methinks this is a part-time opportunity for you or your husband supports your family entirely. I’m sure to you this $700.00 is just some extra money that you don’t have to account to hubby for. As a director, do you ever offer your consultants prizes to meet a specific wholesale goal each month. Because if you do, you know that you are encouraging your consultants to purchase inventory that is not selling. A better reward would be to offer a prize to the consultant who has the most sales. Ask her to bring you actual sales receipts. Call the customer and see if she is happy with the product that she bought. Yeah. That’s what I thought. Too much trouble to do all that. Easier by far to reward them for inventory purchased. It’s an MLM. It behooves you to not have their purchases up. Because if their purchases go down, then you are going to have to ask hubby for that extra money and then you’re gonna have a lotta espainin to do Lucy!

Interesting that her 12% commission checks are between 500-700 per month…no mention of her total director check…charge backs or her co-pay on her car….not to mention what she orders per month to keep the “image” alive….or ANY of her unit expenses…..ok you CA-KAYBOT…come back with the “rest of the story”

Ms Canadian Kaybot, there is NOTHING missing from my life. I have it ALL including a life since I left this pink bullsh!t company that is just a pink amway. I am soooooo glad to be out! I have complete FREEDOM and don’t have to worry about perfect makeup or fashion to impress people I didn’t give a damn about in the first place. Not to mention all of the time I have on my hands, it is great! And, my finances are better by NOT being involved with the pink amway.

Oh!~ I finally figured out how to respond to this today!! Yes, that Canadian Directors NEEDS to come back and FINISH UP What she started!! $700? per month???!! My 15 year grandaughter makes more than that per month babysitting FT this summer!! That woman is lying!! She HAS GOT to be making more money that that per month!!!

If she doesn’t — no disrepect for those who work in the fast-food business or the janatorial services — but this woman must have been in that line of work B4 she signed up for MK, okay?

Her email was not “hate mail” to me — it was just “sad -sad”, :'(mail. Bless her sweet lil’ heart

We are not here because we want to complain. We are here to spread the word about what you wont face. The “system” that MK-USA employs is a complex series of manipulations designed to get woman who desire a better life,to fall head long into a multi-level marketing scheme which preys on credit card limits by front loading new recruits, and then encouraging the additional monthly purchases by peer pressure, sales program incentives, bogus contests, imaginary consistency clubs, and the like, irregardless of sales volume. It is so blatant, Mk doesnt even CARE that you will notice they do not track retail sales, while claiming to be #1 Best selling brand.

Its the #1 Best selling brand TO CONSULTANTS.

Mary Kay is the Biggest US Fraud, and you, my Canadian friend, are utterly blind…as once were we all.

I never found such negative and hateful self-talk to be very motivating. MLM is so weird in that all “negative input” is to be erased from the environment unless it comes from yourself or your SSD/NSD/Upline — then it is to be directed inward and stuffed into a desperate dark place in your soul.

That bit about belittling yourself in the mirror was a new one. I suppose if Corporate can’t be around you 24-7 to do it, they’ll get you to do the work for them!

I have never muttered, “Scrib, you stinking dork – you’re a hack and if you don’t get this or that done, you’re worthless.” Yeah. THAT’LL get me going.

“Get over yourself.”

Was that directed at me or at the Director over there who is holding a sales contest to see who’s going to sleep in the fold-out recliner at the foot of her bed? Or maybe it was for the NSD who’s charging $35 a pop (plus airfare and rental car) for women to come walk through her humble home and absorb its greatness?

Naw, probably still directed at me. Oh well; I can dream, right?

Hell. I’m a goth and I still know better than that.

She’s assuming you can FIND anyone to ATTEND one more class.

I’m a director and yes I actually SELL the product and yes my 12%commission cheques are on average $500-$700 (sometimes more) a month.

In the words of your homegirl Shania:

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’re a director
That don’t impress me much
So you got the suit and you may have a car
But 700 loonies doesn’t go very far
And a bubble won’t keep you warm in the middle of the night
That don’t impress me much

My involvement with Mary Kay Cosmetics has come full circle. I used to help women get into the business; now I help them get out and recover their lives.

BVSS – That was good

Although this woman seems civil, she ends up throwing her flash of sarcasm in at the end. Yes, it does seem to be that she has given some thought to what she is saying. However, I can’t help but feel but her words about “sometimes feeling the same way” that she too is wavering in her stance about Mary Kay. Perhaps she is actually looking for an affirmation that her doubts are well founded?!

In any event, they are certainly coming to Pink Truth and there is no doubt that what they find will always be the truth and nothing but the truth.

I can’t live on $700 a month. Can you?

No Cdn can live on $700, either. Average rent for a ONE-bedroom in my city is $941/month. A CONDO costs close to $200,000 if not more in some cases. She’s obviously being subsidized by DH. Even if she lived in the country, she’d be living in a teeny one-bedroom and even then she wouldn’t have much (if anything) left after paying for all of her living expenses.

Okay, I haven’t read all the comments yet, but I’m jumping in, anyway. I cracked up at the end of her letter. It’s glaring to me, but wouldn’t be to you b/c you’re (generally speaking) not that familiar with our culture. She wouldn’t use the word God. She switched “God bless” for “sincerest best wishes”.

Is it just me, or does every director that posts here *never* front-loads and *always* sells her product? (I sold it too, but define sell….)

If she’s consistently earning $500- $700, her unit *cannot* be selling that hard/much, either. She has to be recruiting all the time to be consistent with her commissions, right? So I don’t believe her when she says that she doesn’t front load. Even if her recruits start out with $600 of inventory as opposed to $3600, that’s $600 in inventory more than what they need to start with to sell Mary Kay. So I DON’T BEEELIEVE YOU Cdn director. I think the only reason you’ve posted here is because Pink Truth is beginning to seep into your territory and you’re worried! That’s why you took a meagre swipe at us!

Imagine sitting in a restaurant and following a “sharp” woman to the bathroom to warm chatter her and she throws Pink Truth at you. It’ll be like a ray of sunshine hitting a vampire — forcing you to slither back to what you should’ve been doing in the first place. Enjoying your meal and dinner companion(s) (family?) as opposed to harassing the clientel.

Well you’re right to be worried. I’m the Pink Truth confetti fairy (not the only Cdn one, either) and it’s my mission to spread the word!

Dear Canadian Hate Mailer:

Take off to the great white north.
Take off. It’s beauty way to go.
Take off. You HOSER!

(No offense to all other Canadian consultants; current or former)

No offense taken. That was exxccelllent!

They are so VERY threatened by the bad press from former consultants who have come together to warn others. The silly thing they don’t realize is if they did not HAVE unhappy former consultants, then they would not be in this mess in the first place. Catch-22. MLM sucks and requires vast swaths of humanity to be processed through the career plan each year to stay afloat. It is soooo wrong.

I’m pleased this Canadian made an effort to walk the walk and talk the talk and do her best to remain positive. As for looking in the mirror and calling myself a coward – that is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. I’ve devised my own saying and I love it “if at first you don’t succeed maybe you should try something else!” Try and try again is like banging head on the wall. Why??

The point of the ‘business’ not being for everyone is true. If you have a heart and soul and conscience then it’s not for you. And the term ‘business’ is tossed around irresponsibly. It’s more of a con game.

It is too contrite to put us in little boxes and categorize us as a group of people who failed. One more skin care class? That one skin care class required twenty warm chatter attempts, five phone numbers, 1 call to a fake number, 2 calls that I could never reach, 1 call that I could not book after all and 1 person who booked a facial and then probably cancelled. The work – the UNPAID work that goes into successfully arriving at that class with 4-6 eager customers present is mind boggling. You’ve already worked days to get there, not to mention packing up your stuff, lugging that inventory in and out and drive time. And even then, the 4-6 eager people will probably not buy anything. It is funny how the poorer a person is the more inclined to take advantage of a free facial they are.

As for something missing in our lives – what the h-e-double hockey sticks is she talking about?? Because we found the MLM in Mary Kay we are now missing something? Au contraire – I have found something! My soul!

I’ll tell you why Mary Kay isn’t for me, or most people. Sales are nonexistent even with discounts and I cannot lie to a potential recruit to start a business where there isn’t any.

My advice to all MK people still fogged up: itemize every expense and income (it’s called a financial statement) and you won’t have an argument. If you want to play at MK while your hubby totes your family finances than do it but at least be honest about it.

My biggest beef is that they act all ‘aw shucks’ when we get out and talk about the MLM system and they say we didn’t work. But they purposely misled us in the interview. Not once do they tell us how many doors we’ll have to knock on to get that one class. Not once do we learn how many calls you have to make to book one facial. IN FACT in the interview it is all easy-peasy, only after you have joined and you think you want to move up in MK do they tell you – well (surprise!) Now it’s time to DO WHATEVER IT TAKES, talk to everyone – all of a sudden you need to make a big commitment – it ain’t easy!

Make up your minds directors still in the fog. I dare any of you to admit what would happen to your numbers if you were 100% honest and unbiased in the interview stage.

Remember that movie Liar Liar? Below is an imaginary day in the life of an MK Director who CANNOT TELL A LIE!

“Well Mitsy, you didn’t buy anything except a lipgloss. I had been really hoping you would at least have gotten the basic Timewise, I did drive all the way here in 90 degree heat in hose. But no worries. I know what it is like to have no money. Here is some information on the Mary Kay Opportunity. I don’t think you’ll ever get anywhere with this career choice, and I think you’re kind of dim but if you read it and feel like I might be your friend if you join than I can get you to buy a showcase and then I’m on to step two! Once you’re in, I’ll try really hard to get you to buy an inventory package by blinding you with the meagher freebies and I’ll at least make some money off of that initial purchase. Then, any time you do anything or just say you do something, we don’t really check to see if you do or not, I’ll give you a ribbon at the meeting! You’ll feel good of course, and my other team members who are questioning themselves and the business will really think there are sales out there and hold on for another week. And you never know, you could end up a director like me, but really only like .2 % of consultants signed ever do, but you could. Not likely, but possible. All you have to do is find other people who are questioning their lives (we’re going after 20 years old nowadays) or mums who feel guilty about working and having their kids in daycare and give them a spiel about how great this job is. It really isn’t, I work my behind off and hardly break even, but directors at least get some attention at various functions. You’ll find people to recruit – Single mums like you are OK – but watch out, they usually have no money. What do you say we sign you up today and get it over with. It is the 29th of the month after all. I would like to give you the inventory talk in a minute.”
