Yes, Mary Kay Ash was a real person, a woman who founded her own company in 1963 when society didn’t expect (or for the most part allow) women to be business owners let alone successful ones. This book is her story.
It is written in the style favored by many autobiographies, full of little vignettes of her life from her childhood and her early life, her first career, several marriages, and the founding and success of her own business.
A woman of faith, she knew that God came first in her life, so she developed the motto: “God first, family second, career third.” With these priorities Mary Kay believed that she could succeed, and her work and her words have inspired thousands of other women, and men too, to do the same.
I can’t say that reading this book will change your life, but I have met many woman who say that becoming a Mary Kay consultant changed their life.
