(Words) Mary Kay Ash

“Don’t let the negatives of life control you. 

Rise above them. 

Use them as your stepping stones to go higher

than you ever dreamed possible!.

Mary Kay Ash

I have always had a profound fondness for Mary Kay, she was truly a pioneer for women.  She started her May Kay cosmetics business in the 60’s with a small investment, and a lot of enthusiasm.  In her first year of business, Mary Kay turned a profit of over $1,000,000.  Mary Kay’s philosophy was simple, “treat others as you want to be treated.”

Mary Kay was known for her love of the color pink, and used it in everything from her product packaging, to the pink Caddillacs she gave away to big earners in her business.  Mary sincerely loved her consultants (her term rather than sales representatives), and once said, “People are a company’s greatest asset.”

Today, I wanted to celebrate Mary Kay’s life and her many business philosophies, through her quotes!

“Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign

around his or her neck that says,

Make Me Feel Important! 

Not only will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life!”

“The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang!”

“Do not inspire to fit in.  Desire to lead!

“God didn’t have time to create a nobody…just a somebody. 

I believe that each of us has God-given talents

within us waiting to be brought into fruition!”

“Dare to grow into your dreams and

claim this as your motto. 

Let it be me!”

“A good goal is like a strenuous exercise — it makes you stretch!”

“Ideas are a dime a dozen. 

People who implement them are priceless!”

Mary Kay Ash

“Watching women achieve their dreams is the thing that keeps me inspired!”

Mary Kay Ash

“It is far better to be exhausted from success,

than to be rested from failure!”

Mary Kay Ash

“You can do anything in this world that you want to do,

if you want to do it badly enough!”

Mary Kay Ash

And that’s a wrap!

Talk soon,
