A little "today on pink truth" from your "fearless leader"!
"For 1.1 million American women, Mary Kay will not be great in 2008" reads one of todays headlines.
With no credit given to anyone else (yet), I can only subscribe the following math to Tracy.
Approximately 700,000 in MK currently - check
Approximately 40,000/month added for a total of 480,000 for the year - check
Total new and original MK reps 1.18 million - check
Total making an "executive income" 600 - check (but this is thin ice because a definition of executive income WILL vary)
Total making a living (or small income) of 10k to 20k - 13,000 - (not sure where this number comes from but) check
Number of consultants making a "small profit" - 10,000 - ummmm what?
Out of 700,000 no wait, 1.18 million consultants in MK this year (less the aforementioned directors and NSD's) you think that only 10,000 are going to make a profit? Where do you get that number? That is a ridiculously arbitrary number.
Accounting profit is the difference between retail sales price and the costs of acquisition (whether by harvest, extraction, manufacture, or purchase). A key difficulty in measuring either definition of profit is in defining costs. Accounting profit may be positive even in competitive equilibrium when pure economic profits are zero.
I find 10,000 people a might small and unlikely number for people who have drawn some profit from Mary Kay.
That aside, "making money" is not the only thing that women look to in making Mary Kay "great in '08". There are many that sign up as "personal use". Judi, here on this site, is one of those people. She has no intention of making money and shares the expense of the resigning fee, the shipping, and the 50% discount. Because she may not order more than $200 this year, she may also fall on that list of "women that Mary Kay 'churned' through and spit out".
Judi, may I ask, at this point in your experience with Mary Kay, would you say that you feel you are being "used and abused" or offered a product you like and found a way to get it at a price that you like?
I am sure I don't have to tell you, you are safe to answer honestly here!
Sorry, I am one of those that "like" math, and when I see it being butchered the way it was today on PT, I have to say something.
