Mary Kay Ash always loved Thanksgiving.  She was known for gathering all her family together and making the traditional family dinner with all the fixings including her jalapeno dressing. “Thanksgiving is always a very special time for me.

At this time of year, my heart is always filled with gratitude.  Gratitude for my family, both near and far, for friends who are like family and for the amazing people in my life, including my clients.  I am grateful for the many blessings bestowed on me including...

Pat Danforth is an Inner Circle Senior National Sales Director who has earned over $7 million in Mary Kay!  She is a down-to-earth type person who believes in the vision Mary Kay Ash shared with this company.  I had the opportunity to attend  a training with Pat last weekend, including spending time with her during dinner with about just 12 of us.  My favorite quote from Pat:  “Don’t SPEND time.  Invest it!”   Wow.  Powerful, right?  It reminded me to value my time a little more and to invest it – and hopefully wisely. Pat is one of those people who was taught personally on many occasions by Mary Kay Ash.  She shared several personal stories that...
