Live with Passion!

Mary Kay Ash was loved by her people. She was the Founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, and passed away not long ago at 83 years old. I heard her speak about 20 years ago, and at the end of her speech she was asked, "What is the key to success in business?"

She didn't hesitate when she said, "Make your people feel important." She truly understood that recognition is a need we all crave. There are no exceptions.

Marcy Blochowiak understands this powerful principle as much as any leader I've ever met. And, most importantly...it comes from her heart. She has built a team of thousands by using a secret weapon: "Hire more women, and love them like family."

In her beautiful book, No Glass Ceiling, Just Blue Sky, Marcy shares her story about leaving a secure job as a flight attendant to become an entrepreneur. She lays her heart on the line when she tells about overcoming fears and doubts to build a highly successful organization. She offers valuable insights on life balance, the power of choice, respecting others and removing the chains that bind you.

In the time I've spent with Marcy and members of her team I could feel the love and respect they had for each other. She truly understands the power of kindness and compassion. She understands that companies don't succeed...people do.

Today, I'd like to share a brief excerpt from Marcy's book. Enjoy and share it with friends and family.

Live with Passion,
