The Corporate Rationalization… Recently I have been hearing about a comparison of Mary Kay and normal American Corporations. The ones who put forth the analogy want you to see the realistic and understandable scenarios of corporate structure and how Mary Kay mirrors the same structure.
In many organizations, there are only a few at the top who make the majority of the money. Think CEO, CFO, President, Vice President, Heads of Departments. Like Mary Kay, thousands of workers make minimum wage while these leaders earn the big dough. The lesson here is that if you work hard, if luck would have it, if the stars align, you might work yourself up to Dept. Head, and someday be a Vice president. Likewise, Mary Kay tells you the same thing. Work Hard, and you will make that climb, but even better for you is, the Top positions are not already filled! You can be a NEW CEO of your own company!
