Get to know Mary Kay the woman
Mary Kay is best known as a brand to most people, but it's a brand that's named after a real person: its founder, Mary Kay. She's done some pretty amazing stuff, like growing a tiny one location beauty supply store into one of the biggest cosmetics sellers in the world. So, let's get to know Ms. Kay a little better.
She was actually a successful direct salesperson herself. It was only after retiring from this that she opened up her beauty supply store. Using her knowledge from her career, she wrote a book that helped women succeed in the world of business, which was extremely male-dominated back then.
She opened her first store with the help of her son, Richard Rogers. Richard was just 20 years old at the time. She spent her $5,000 life savings on it. It opened on what might have been an unlucky day for some - Friday the 13th in September of 1963.
