The following is written by Speaking the Real Truth - all I did was copy and paste. :o)
Yes, I am still happy with my MK business. And, I'm not torqued at those here, but at one of the latest posts "over there".
This is what really gets my goat, is when someone over there tells their experience and thing slings it all over the rest of us.
If you want to speak for herself or first hand stories, fine, do so, but leave me and the other thousands of MK consultants and directors that you do not know out of it.
I too was a monthly Miss Go-Give. I too and well liked and respected and plan to become an NSD. But,
-No, I did not fake ANYONE to become a director and do not teach others to do so.-My first line offspring have not faked their units either.
-Yes, I have counseled consultants who I felt were ordering more than they should. I have actually told them to stop ordering until they sell some products!
-No, I have never pumped in large amounts of inventory out of my personal budget to make production...NEVER.
-Yes, I have encouraged another director that I saw doing so to step down, I told her that she wasn't saving anything. (And no, she was not mine, so I was not gaining anything).
-I have counseled my offspring that we do not buy production, we sell enough product to warrant our ordering a significant amount each month, thus taking personal responsibility for our units, setting an example of a successful consultant, and making money at the same time.
-I do not encourage consultants to start with inventory that is over their heads. It's really dumb to do that anyway because a scared, overwhelmed, woman usually does nothing, and like it has been pointed out, it can all be returned. My return rate is very low, and consultants regularly contact me to re-join my unit.
-I am happiest when I know that my consultants are making money and so am I. If you build correctly and train your people correctly, this will be the case. When you help enough women get what they want from their businesses, and they are earning money, unit production takes care of itself. REALLY. That is the way that MK is supposed to work.
Please stop blaming me/us if you and others have bastardized/hijacked the system for your own benefit and now you feel badly about it. We are not all like you. I am glad that you finally got a conscience, but those who are truly repentant, don't need to blame others or sling mud onto others undeservedly.
Fess up for your own crimes, and leave the rest of us out of it please.
My Senior is legit, as is her Sr. and our NSD. I know these women and know the intimate workings of their businesses. They are ethical and they make money, every month. I've been around and I've seen it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and there is some in MK, but please stop acting like there is no good or that all of us are bad.
Whew, I feel better now.
