What are YOUR new year’s resolutions???

I think I am sticking with the standard run of the mill…

  • Exercise more
  • Eat healthy
  • Drink more water
  • Powerstart every month

etc etc etc

If you could make $25,000 per year or $75,000 per year from little investment of $180, all things being equal, which would you prefer?The answer is very obvious because you would always prefer to earn more compared to less for the same amount of time or effort. To earn more therefore you must follow the principles that make higher earning possible.

DALLAS – Bruce Springsteen immortalized the pop power of pink Cadillacs.

But the luminous cars are also at the center of one of the oldest, most unusual business relationships in the auto industry – the one between Addison, Texas-based Mary Kay Inc. and General Motors Corp.

Last week, Mary Kay concluded its annual sales seminars in Dallas with the ritual rewarding of hundreds of big pink Cadillacs to the cosmetic company’s top salespeople. At a time when many companies are downsizing, cost-cutting, laying off and buying out, Mary Kay’s “trophies on wheels” continue to grow as part of one of the biggest corporate award programs in the United States.

“The cars are (more…)

I love… you know… so much of what we are taught in Mary Kay is “discounted” as non-relevant or discredited because it came from “a national” or “a Director.”  Well… I love when I come across great articles from great business sources that just VALIDATE what we already know.  (And hey… maybe add a little too….)  Enjoy the read:

What’s really holding you back from starting your own business? These 31 tips will help you face your fears and finally get the guts to become your own boss.


Most startup articles focus on the mechanics of launching a business. But the inner journey to starting a business is just as important as writing a business plan and getting financing. I learned this the hard way.

With a business plan and hard-earned savings in hand, I didn’t have the guts to leave my job. After quitting my job (more…)

Happy People
For Full Post See:

The notion of “Happy People” was tossed around in the Robert-Lost-His-Mind posts as something ridiculous at best, dangerous at worst. One blogger equated “happy people” with “vacuous”. The idea seems to be that “happy people” implies those who are oblivious to the realities of life, in a fantasy of their own creation, and without the ability to think critically. The science, however, suggests just the opposite. (more…)

These are great!  Hope they inspire you too!

 A Teen Millionaire’s 3 Principles to Success – January 09, 2007URL:

I started my first business at age nine with $50 and a home computer, and ran it from my room at home as a one-kid operation. By the time I was 19 I had started nearly a dozen profitable businesses, and for my latest venture I had received a very attractive offer of $10 million in venture capital. I turned that offer down and walked away because I didn’t feel good about the conditions that would have been imposed on me if I’d taken the money. The venture capital firm would have called the shots, told me how to run my company, and paid me a salary that would’ve been less than I’d made on my own since I was 12.

It was a lucrative offer, and who knows? Maybe with their backing and expertise (more…)

We hear it all the time in this business “Fake it ’til you make it!” is a mantra that gets repeated over and over and over again… one spouted from all levels in Mary Kay… even our founder.  What is different, I think, is that the meaning was different when it came from Mary Kay Ash.  Not that I ever had the chance to ask her personally… (more…)
