Do you know who Mary Kay Ash was? She worked at Stanley Home Products at one time and even though she spent many years there and trained many others, she was continually overlooked for promotion. She ended her job and wrote a book. That book was written to help women in business.
Born May 12, 1918 in Texas, she began her own cosmetic business at age 45. Her initial investment was $5,000 in 1963. The company turned a profit the first year. Today there are 1.6 million salespeople working for Mary Kay Inc. The rule she ran her company by? The Golden Rule: “Treat others as you want to be treated.” Annual sales now exceed $2.2 billion. Mary Kay once said, “One person can make a difference.”
Mary Kay believed that it was her job to make others feel important. Her life slogan was, “God first, family second, career third.” She knew that encouragement was crucial in relationship.
Who do you need to encourage today? Send them a text of encouragement. Tell them they are worth far more than they know. Tell them God had a specific design in mind when He created them. You can make a difference in the life of another today, because, “One person can make a difference.”
