Did anyone happen to see this episode at the beginning of October. It was really interesting because the show interviewed 3 cadillac directors who were quite vague about how they made their money and none of them could say for sure how much they made. It was so weird. Then there was a women (former director) who spoke about quitting her business because of guilt (she too was a cadillac director making over $9,000 a month according to Applause,)

The Secret of the Sell it was called. I did see it. It didn't paint a favorable picture of MK. I find it hard to believe than someone in business wouldn't know how much they make.

I just watched it after googling it. Wow. It really didn't make the company look good at all. How interesting that the show mentioned the website blog Pink Truth. Mary Kay Corporate's heads must be spinning around backwards! That website has been a thorn in their side for years and now it has made national television.

I felt bad in the episode for the reps that bought all that inventory. That should never be encouraged. In direct sales you have to reinvest in your business, but you can't always be your own best customer. MLM's always get a bad rap. Very misunderstood, by those on the outside, and sometimes those joining. The lure of big money potential is so appealing. But having your own business requires hard work and consistency. In the recruitment piece, the flexibility and be your own boss and work as little or as much as you want is emphasized. The realization that business is a hustle on top of all your other responsibilities comes later. If you have a passion for your company and enjoy the process, you can succeed with great rewards.
