Blog: Mark McKinstry -- "Your Worst Days Are Behind You..." - 2013-04-24
This is the second in a series of "I Am Out – Life Is Good" postings. Mark was profiled on Marty's blog in 2010. He is a very smart guy who was a driving force behind Dianetics returning to the New York Times bestseller list. His story is worth reading – and his perspective of life after the Sea Org is invaluable. Mike Rinder
Hi... My name is Mark McKinstry. I was introduced to Scientology in 1975 at the Davis Mission while attending UC Davis. I joined staff shortly thereafter and later transferred to St. Hill where I worked in the Guardians Office and Mission Office Worldwide.
I joined the Sea Org in 1988 at Bridge Publications and was the National Sales manager from 1988 until 2004. I routed out of the Sea Org shortly after I completed the RPF program in Pac. I was assigned for being a "stat crasher" based on the international sales of Dianetics. Needless to say these sales continued to fall long after my removal to the point that there is virtually no LRH book presence or marketing being done to raw public. So maybe I wasnt the "why" for this.
