Episode Description

Chronicles the amazing rise to success and wealth of cosmetics queen Mary Kay Ash. As a young woman, Kay quit her job when she was regularly passed over for promotion by men and began her own cosmetics sales company. Beginning with just a $5,000 investment, her business grew into a multi-national company with over $2 billion in annual sales by the time she died in 2001, and her philosophy of "praising people to success" helped many women on her sales force to realize their own dreams of success.
