Haha...That was my bruhaha with Mary Kay back in 1991. Most of these companies avoid the "P" word (pyramid) like the plague. They insist they are anything and everyting other than a pyramid. I worked for the US Small Business Administration out of the Springfield, Missouri Branch Office, recieved a loan application, and made a determination that Mary Kay was a pyramid business, despite their protestations to the contrary, and pyramid businesses are not eligible for SBA loans. Up to that point, Mary Kay "consultants" had gotten a ton of small SBA loans all over the country. Anyway, Mary Kay called me up and gave me a tongue lashing and pretty much went ballistic - she was a tough lady. She appealed my decision, which ended up going to Washington for review by the agency legal staff. They concurred with my analysis, and SBA loans to Mary Kay folks stopped...
