Mary Kay Ash: Queen of Sales
by Daniel Alef
Mary Kay Ash is the quintessential example of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. After 10 years at World Gift Co. a direct sales organization Ash resigned when an underling she had trained was promoted ahead of her--because he was a male. Ash a 45-year-old unemployed divorcee with three children was at her nadir. But a few months later she formed what is now known as Mary Kay Inc. a cosmetics company that grew into a behemoth with current annual revenues in excess of 2.4 billion. And she did it with verve panache tenacity hard work and endless faith in her ability to succeed. She was a master saleswoman. Mary Kay was independent as a child and never faltered despite setbacks and tragedies. The story of Mary Kay Ash is as colorful as the pink Cadillacs she gave to her most successful "independent consultants." [3169-word Titans of Fortune article].
