@kristen.aldridge : It’s never too late to start. . In 1963, a middle aged Mary Kay Ash was alone, depressed, and jobless. After 25 years in the direct-selling business, she had resigned from her position when a man she had trained was promoted above her - at twice her salary. . Recently widowed (her husband had suddenly died of a heart attack) and alienated from a male dominated workplace, the experience left her in shambles. “I lived across the street from a mortuary and I began to wonder if I should call them up and tell them to ‘come on over,’” she would later say. But her strength and resilience was extraordinary. . Sitting at her kitchen table, she made two lists on a yellow legal pad. One list contained the good things she had seen in companies. The other featured things she thought could be improved. When reviewing the lists, she realized she had created a marketing plan for a dream business. . So, that same year, 45-year-old Ash put her plan into action with just $5,000 in savings and Mary Kay Cosmetics was born. It was a first - a company dedicated to making life more beautiful for women founded on not the competitive rule, but on the golden rule: praising people to success on the principle of faith first, family second, and career third. It was a company - as Ash would say - “with heart.” . In 2015, total annual sales for Mary Kay soared past 4 billion dollars with more than 800,000 independent beauty consultants in 37 countries. Never underestimate the power of a woman with a mission.
