The Mary Kay Way: Timeless Principles From America's Greatest Woman Entrepreneur

For entrepreneurs, The Mary Kay Way offers unlimited inspiration. For anyone at all who wants to succeed in business, The Mary Kay Way presents real, effective, proven success principles that are equally effective in life.
It was Mary Kay's goal in 1963 to build a company that was guided by
the Golden Rule and dedicated to giving women unlimited opportunities for success.
She considered caring and kindness to be the building blocks of a highly motivated workforce, and with 50 years of success, Mary Kay Inc. has proven her right.
Packed with timeless and proven principles, The Mary Kay Way, a Wall Street Journal bestseller, includes modern perspectives from some of the company's top independent salespeople worldwide and a new foreword by Mary Kay's grandson, also a company executive.
The original book, first published in 1984, became a legendary guide to the leadership wisdom of Mary Kay Ash. Based on her business philosophy, the book has been extensively quoted and taught in both graduate and undergraduate universities. The Mary Kay Way includes the same principles that built a global success with updates for the modern business environment and today's entrepreneurs.
