Their Special Day Was Just as Special to Her
In honor of Mary Kay's birthday on May 12, it's fitting to remember that she always wanted to make others feel even more important than herself. Especially on their birthday! The following is a reminiscence from long-time Mary Kay Museum Director Jennifer Cook and Mary Kay Inc. retiree Erma Thompson.

"We had a little system back in the 1960s. When a new Independent Beauty Consultant started her Mary Kay business, her name was entered into a notebook. The date of the Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement and her birth date were entered, and the person received a card every year from Mary Kay, for her anniversary and her birthday. Over the years, we moved to another building to accommodate our growing Company, and the independent sales force continued to expand as well. One day one of the executives said to Mary Kay, 'Mary Kay, you know we'll have to quit doing these birthdays. We have too many.' And she just said, 'Oh no we won't.' There was no arguing with her, as she would just smile sweetly. Mary Kay wanted every woman to have a birthday card because 'some don't get many cards.' When she was a salesperson herself, she had customers who told her she was the only person who sent them a card on their birthdays, and some Independent Beauty Consultants wrote to thank her and said the same thing. That touched her deeply. She didn't want anyone to feel less than special on their birthday."

A Mary Kay Thanksgiving Dinner
The Table
represents the support for the entire meal.   This is similar to unit meetings, education and the support you receive from your Sales Director and sister Consultants.

The Silverware and Utensils
are the tools for successfully completing the feast.  In Mary Kay, your Beauty Kit, brochures, CDs and ideas are the tools for your success!

The Turkey
is the main event!  Everything is built around the turkey.  In Mary Kay, this is the skin care class where everything takes place --- booking, coaching, selling and team building!  The turkey must be prepared correctly and thoroughly, and in a skin care class this is done by coaching the hostess and pre-profiling the guests.

The Stuffing
is having the right attitude and having your priorities in order --- God first, family second, and career third!

The Gravy
is, of course, the money and financial rewards you can earn in your Mary Kay business.  The turkey must be prepared before the gravy can be made.  In other words, everything comes from the skin care class!

The Vegetables
represent all of the personal growth in Mary Kay.  There are a variety of personal benefits you can receive from your business.  You decide which of those benefits you would like to have.  You might not have tried some of the vegetables before, but you will love them.  They taste great.

The Cranberry Salad
is the tartness.  Its the challenges that make you step out of your comfort zone.  It gives you a new perspective that makes everything taste sweeter.

The Relishes
are the friends you meet and cherish throughout your Mary Kay career.  The variety of the relishes is plentiful!  In Mary Kay you get to choose those you want to work with!

All the choices
on the table represent the flexibility in Mary Kay!  You can take everything and have a great big plate, or you can pick and choose and have a little plate.  You get to be your own boss!

The Pumpkin Pie
is the recognition you receive when meal is is served and enjoyed!  This is the sweet taste of success for a job well done!  Praise and recognition surround you.  The sweet feeling you have about yourself after you have accomplished a goal is irreplaceable!

The Dirty Dishes
must be cleaned and put away for future meals.  This is the final step and it prepares you for the first step again --- another delicious meal! Adding up the sales, filling out the weekly accomplishment sheet, cleaning the mirrors and trays, and putting everything away gets you ready for the next class.

The Leftovers
are the bookings leftover from your class.  They are so easy to just heat up in the microwave.  You dont have to do any shopping or a lot of preparation for them.  The leftovers are the BEST!

The Nap
is long awaited and much appreciated!  Enjoy!  You deserve it!
