In the beginning, I didn't believe I could do anything right. My high school principal even branded me a rebel, at 15, who would never amount to anything!
I felt very insecure, but I thought I'd finally made it in 1978 when I started producing television commercials for a department store. I was eager to advance. Instead, I ran full-speed into the glass ceiling that limits women.
That's when I accepted a friend's invitation to find out about the Mary Kay business opportunity.
Success came quickly for me, thanks to a wonderful mentor. She believed in me before I believed in myself. Within a year, I earned my first Cadillac and debuted as a record-setting Sales Director.
My earnings quickly climbed and so did my confidence. I discovered my place. I provided to myself that I could not only do something -- but to it right!
And my life has been enriched tenfold by helping other women reach their own goals.
