Please help me! Here are a few of the ideas that I have thought of that we NEED, but I need help figuring out what else we need and also some researchers to come up with the TRUTH, not just what people have heard.
1. This page - Mary Kay Fact Check. Often heard facts like "Mary Kay's Business Model is taught at Harvard." Is this true? To what extent is it true? Where did it come from? This will help people that are considering Mary Kay to evaluate whether they are being fed a bunch of fantasy stories or actual facts.
2. Important Mary Kay resources - Is there an 800 number for non-consultants? Is there a way to check out a director or recruiter to see if they are as successful as they are claiming? For consultants, what does it take to stay active? (A chart or graphic would be great! I can create that, but I need the information.) How do you return product? Things like this.
3. Stuff that Mary Kay and/or your recruiter might not want you to know. What does it take to be a Director? To drive a car? To make NSD? I know this might be a little scary to put out there, but Pink Truth is putting out their distorted version of it and people will be looking for it. Spelling it out in black and white will help shut down their lies and hopefully will prevent some women from trying too hard too soon when they could wait and build a solid team.
I am tired of reading Pink Truth stories that could easily have been avoided if these women had real facts and figures to look at in an easy to follow format. I can put it together, but I need to know what the information is.
For now, I will leave this page open to comments. Please add the following types of comments:
1. What pages or information should be included? What did you wish you knew before you started Mary Kay that you couldn't find anywhere?
2. I need the answers to the questions too. mk4me, I would definitely love your input on this part - you can email me directly rather than comment if you prefer. But everyone else, please take some time to offer what you know. This needs to be facts and where the source is. "My recruiter said..." is NOT good enough. "In my experience..." isn't either. I want a copy of a Harvard syllabus or some other official document if we are going to say that Mary Kay is taught at Harvard. If you have a few minutes, please take the time to do a little research for this. Pick something you have always been curious about and look into it. Comment or E-mail the results of your research. firstname.lastname@example.org
