Judi has raised a good question over the holiday “break”. I say that it is a good question because it has been asked me by various people in from different perspectives that I have asked for an opinion about this site.
The simple answer to that question is no.
However, as this is site does have as one of its primary goals, “clearing up misconceptions about Mary Kay” and in my opinion Pink Truth is one of the most prominent (if not THE most prominent) purveyor of Mary Kay misconceptions, it will often fall under attack here.
As I have said before, I have a limited amount of time to devote to this site, and in the coming year it looks like I may have even less. As such, I rely heavily upon and greatly appreciate all the support and ongoing commentary from everyone on this site.
By way of giving fresh direction and getting things started on the right foot for the New Year, allow me to elaborate on the overall goals of this site....
First and foremost and probably a good description of the mission of this site is, “presenting a balanced view of the Mary Kay Opportunity”.
Second, dispel misinformation about the Mary Kay Opportunity
Third, give solid, good information and tips about how to operate your Mary Kay Business, get the best service from YOUR Mary Kay Representative, or painlessly extract yourself from Mary Kay if you have found yourself in an unhealthy environment.
Fourth, to reply to and accurately answer questions or accusations leveled against Mary Kay.
And finally, and somewhat as a side goal, saving people from the cult-like atmosphere of Pink Truth. This goal is not as extreme as it may sound. I believe that most people who read/comment on Pink Truth can discern the difference between truth and the elaborate exaggerations that that site makes in its presentation of their so-called truth. However, because they are so adamant to proclaim that their entire site represents the truth that will set victims free, and because I believe so whole heartedly that their site is NOT the whole truth, nor are most people in Mary Kay victims that need saving, it is my intent that people reading that site are given the entire story, and allowed to choose for themselves what decision they should make.
As this site grows and we get more opinions and examples of the good, the bad and the ugly, I hope to create a more static site that could be called, “things we know for sure about Mary Kay”.
I also hope that I can add some other authors to this site so that readers can get closer to “up to the minute” updates about Mary Kay happenings.
Thanks again to everyone that has joined the discussion last year and thanks in advance for your contributions in 2008.
Happy New Year Everybody!
