I keep seeing Facebook posts about direct sales, including Younique, that go something like this:
“Attention all women who sit at home all day, with nothing to do! Sell 3D Fiber Mascara, instead! Why sit at home, doing nothing, when you could be making money?”
Can I be blunt for a second? This p*sses me off. What women do you know that “sit at home, doing nothing”? Whether they are stay at home moms, stay at home wives, work at home moms, retired women, etc – trust me when I say they are NOT doing “nothing”.
They are chasing after kids, or grandkids, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, helping with homework, cooking, doing laundry, mopping the floor, cleaning up yet another mess that no one else seems to see, and much, much more!
Me? I’ve been a stay at home mom, a stay at home wife. You know what would have appealed to me, when that’s what I did? Something more along the lines of: “Are you tired of doing tons of work, with no credit given? Tired of hearing that you do no work, or don’t “deserve” to spend money? If so, I have an opportunity for you. Maybe you’ve heard about that crazy 3D Fiber Lash mascara, that seems to be all over the place. Maybe you’ve thought about buying it, but couldn’t justify spending money on yourself. Did you know for only $99, you not only get the mascara, but you get a whole kit full of makeup, just for you? And, when you have a spare minute, during the day (yes, I know, that might mean hiding in the bathroom for ten minutes), you can send a few texts, or make a few Facebook posts – which could let you make a little extra money. Money for bills, money for gas, or maybe money for a sitter, so you and the other half can get a few minutes alone. Sound interesting?

There, now isn’t that a bit more realistic, than trying to claim that women who stay at home, do “nothing”? I thought so.
