To all the powerful, strong women who keep all of us at Mary Kay inspired every day, today is your day. In honor of International Women’s Day, I would like to acknowledge all the women who are role models and mentors in communities, both large and small, all around the world.
Earlier this year, Pantone, the worldwide standard for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer, announced that Ultra Violet will be the color of the year for 2018! Pantone has long been known as the world-renowned authority on color as the key provider of technology for the accurate communication of color across the majority of industries.
Candy hearts, paper valentines, Cupid – the month of February has some iconic symbols for love and offers a boundless opportunity to spread some! But February is also National Teen Dating Violence Awareness month and an opportunity for the community to come together to rally around teens and young people. Specifically, the 1 in 3 young people who will experience abuse from a dating partner across the U.S. in this year alone.

The team at Mary Kay took a break from our usual pink on National Wear Red Day, in support of the American Heart Association in order to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease risk in women.
Before I share part 2 of “Getting into Gear”, I first want to thank all those who let me know that they found the first installment to be inspiring as they commit – or re-commit to their goals. I also appreciated some related advice folks added to the blog such as, “Know when to put the brakes on a bad situation or relationship” and “When you find that you’re lost or headed in the wrong direction, it’s okay to back up and turn around”.
As a life-long student of “Leadership”, I have always been a sponge when it comes to soaking up the wisdom of inspirational leaders, such as Mary Kay Ash. When I think about the lessons I’ve learned from many successful people shared how they elevated their game and accomplished stretch goals, they often described how they “made the shift” and the power of “making the shift”.
We’re so proud to enrich the lives of women in nearly 40 countries around the world, where consumers love our Mary Kay® products. We get to be an integral part of different cultures and traditions, and we learn from each other – in both personal and professional ways! This holiday season, we’ve asked some of our colleagues in Russia, Mexico, China and the United States to share how they celebrate the occasion in their respective countries!
Ready or not -- the holiday season is officially here! Holiday music playing in the stores, a chill in the air, holiday parties and gatherings – like the iconic song says, ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ – especially for your business!
