Follow the Yellow Brick Road

The Wizard of Oz has always been one of my favorite movies. Its annual airing on TV was highly anticipated in my household growing up. Kansas was always shown in black and white. But in OZ …everything was in bright vivid color. Especially that yellow brick road.


Red, White and YOU!

Mary Kay’s national lobbing for good program is a critical part of the company’s efforts to stand on the front lines of the domestic violence issue and provide our independent sales force members with the opportunity to be part of positive change in their home state.

Catching the Dream with Luis Casco

Earlier this month, I was able to meet with the inspiring group of Consultants and Directors from Mary Kay’s Asia Pacific market. Despite long travel hours, the group was packed with energy and that energy was contagious. I was still on "cloud nine" as I flew back home to Los Angeles.


A Century-Long Legacy: Mary Kay Ash’s 100th Birthday

It’s a special day for our Mary Kay family!  May 12th marks what would have been my grandmother’s 100th birthday. What I know for sure as we celebrate her century-long legacy is that Mary Kay Ash was a woman ahead of her time, all the time. She stepped out into a man’s world in the 1960’s to blaze a new path for women and in doing so, she built a company with the progressive purpose of empowering women.

National Small Business Week: 3 Ways To Support Entrepreneurship 

For nearly 55 years now, entrepreneurship has been at the heart of our business.  Our founder, Mary Kay Ash, is one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time and we are proud to carry on her legacy. During National Small Business Week, we celebrate our Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants who embrace entrepreneurship and build successful businesses with the support of our loyal Mary Kay brand lovers!


Happy Friday the 13th!

While in many countries Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day, Mary Kay Ash never bought into those superstitions. In fact, she spent her life savings to start her Mary Kay business on Friday, Sept. 13, 1963.

It's a New Year - Let's Get into Gear! Part 2

It's a New Year - Let's Get into Gear! Part 1
