This WILL get at the base of the issue of why I started this site. It must be discussed.
Should we (anyone involved with Mary Kay) ignore the negative things that have happened and are happening?
Should we just focus on the positive and hope the negative goes away?
Do we need to defend ourselves against accusations leveled at us?
When bad experiences occur, the people that experienced them will naturally "make noise" about it. With the advent of the internet and blogs, their voice is more easily heard. With the anonymity and lack of fact checking prevalent, combined with a mission like vendetta, is there any chance of "fixing" the problems that are being brought up?
This will most likely be a Pandora's box of sorts, I am sure. But throw your coins in the mix. I will be the first to admit that I do not know the "right" answers...
I do know that people who have had bad experiences deserve acknowledgment. I do not think that people who were not successful with Mary Kay were not necessarily lazy or incompetent.
The experiences of both successful and unsuccessful have validity and importance. Someone considering joining Mary Kay should have access to both of these sources.
So what am I asking? Well, this goes with the question from the other day. Is this an anti-PT site?
Are we trying to steer people away from PT? Or do they have a useful purpose?
One thing is clear. People posting on PT believe that their mission is helping people. Equally, people in MK believe that they are helping people.
Some have joined MK believing they were helping people,
then joined PT believing they were helping people,
then joined DUH's site... realizing that neither of the aforementioned causes were truly beneficial.
This tells me:
1. Extreme views tend to not help anyone.
2. Your definition of helping people will vary based on what you believe to be true.
3. As such, you should be sure to verify the truth of your belief before declaring it absolute!
4. It is possible to be wrong and right at the same time.
So, who is right?
