If you have ever worked for a big corporate company (other than Mary Kay), then you may have noticed that its very competitive. There always seems to be someone “out” for you or your position.

Mary Kay understood that, and she knew that she did not want to run a business that way. She knew that you could have a great product and it would not matter if you did not take care of your most valuable asset, and that asset is YOU.

In fact, she said:

“People are definitely a company’s greatest asset. It doesn’t make any difference whether the product is cars or cosmetics.  A company is only as good as the people it keeps.”

If you have ever read Mary Kay’s biography you will know that she faced the fabled “glass ceiling” when she was passed over for a promotion (the person SHE trained got the promotion instead!). She did not want this to happen because it’s not fair for someone else to get rewarded for YOUR hard work.

Because of this experience, she built a business based on training and unlimited opportunity. Your weekly meeting is designed to be uplifting and educational.  What other company tries to build its people like Mary Kay does? If you have a story demonstrating how Mary Kay has put people first, please share it in the comments below.
