Mary Kay

Beauty magnate Mary Kay Ash spent the first 25 years of her career training men who got promoted over her.  In 1963 she’d had enough and struck out on her own to build her ideal company – one that existed to help women succeed. Mary Kay donated scads of cash to prevent domestic violence, and her company is stronger than ever now, raking in over $2.2 billion a year in sales. Harvard even teaches her business model.  Perhaps it was Mary Kay’s motto of faith first, family second, and career third that won her such success. And pink Cadillacs don’t hurt!  Photo:
