Mary Kay Convention Draws 50,000 to Celebrate Company’s 50th Anniversary

Ask Me About Mary KayMary Kay Cosmetics is still a force in the cosmetics world, now a major player in Russia and China and revenues expected to top 3.5 billion in 2013.

Now read the real story behind the pink Cadillac in author Jackie Brown’s memoir Ask ME About Mary Kay. According to reviewer FW,

Jackie Brown takes the reader back to a time in the 1960’s, when women were less valued than men, and chronicles her rise to a highly successful entrepreneurship in the Mary Kay cosmetics business. Attempting to balance her family’s needs while committing her time for beauty shows and recruiting, Jackie is totally relatable as she struggles with guilt as her work hours increase and takes her away from home. Her determination and faith to follow her own guiding principles when they came into conflict with Mary Kay’s deliberate underhandedness was uplifting as she forged ahead on her own path. An ordinary woman who could make great things happen for herself during a time when women were quite repressed, inspires me to remember that all things are possible. Jackie becomes a friend throughout the book, somebody who you keep rooting for. A story of great ups and downs, and the ultimate price of achievement.
