Last school year I completely read through “Room at the Top: The Success Stories of Some of America’s Leading Businesswomen.” Only you won’t find women from real companies listed, just NSDs gushing their personal I-stories. As I read through the book, I noticed more than a few common threads, and I’d like to share the quotes associated with one of those threads today.
Let’s hit the button on the ol’ Wayback Machine and transport ourselves to that first encounter with Mary Kay. It could be any encounter, really; a facial, a skin care class, a 3-way call with Beezelbub. You remember asking “Why does it smell like sulfur in here?” only for the director to shrug and hold up a Yankee Candle with the words, “Hell Fire” scribbled on its label in black magic marker. It looked legit, and the tip of the director’s tail had this cute bow on it, so you didn’t pry.
