Description: Mary Kay Ash, one of America's most dynamic businesswomen, lived her life with simple and timeless principles. Through her uncomplicated formula for success -- God first, family second and career third -- she achieved her dream.She inspired. She motivated. She cared. Mary Kay often said that if you expect great things, great things will happen. So expect results. Expect success. Miracles happen. Mary Kay Ash knew when she created her dream company that its success would largely depend on the principles upon which it was founded. In her wisdom, she realized that by building a solid foundation, and never wavering from it, she would distinguish her company and set the stage for women to succeed for decades to come. Mary Kay herself said, "The Company bears my name, but it has a life of its own. The true success is the lives that have changed for the better." Today, the independent sales force wholeheartedly embraces Mary Kay's vision of enriching women's lives. Because she believed that women would understand and support her mission, her legacy will continue to grow, inspiring generations of women around the world to believe that miracles happen.

Mary Kay Ash is world-famous for her successful line of skin care products and cosmetics. She was born in Hot Wells, Texas, on May 12, 1928. As a young person, she provided care for her invalid father. Unable to afford college, she married and soon began direct sales of books, cooking utensils, and other items. After her first marriage ended in divorce, Mary Kay supported herself and her three young children on her salary as a salesperson. In 1963, Mary Kay retired from sales, but without work, she soon grew restless. She soon realized she had knowledge of business, developed a powerful marketing plan, and chose a cosmetics line as her product. However, shortly before she was to launch her business, Mary Kay's second husband died of a heart attack. Ignoring well-meaning advice to cancel her new career, she premiered the Mary Kay line on September 13, 1963 with a staff of nine salespersons. Today, her company, Mary Kay Cosmetics, is the largest direct seller of cosmetics and skin care products in the U.S., with annual sales of over 1.5 billion. Mary Kay has shared much of her success story in several books including Mary Kay, From My Heart and Mary Kay: You Can Have it All. She has received numerous awards, including the Dale Carnegie Leader Award and the Horatio Alger Distinguished American Citizen Award.
