Lisa Carlson of St. James, joined nearly 50,000 Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants at the company’s annual Seminar held in Dallas from July 21- Aug. 7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
Mary Kay Inc.’s annual Seminar brings together Independent Beauty Consultants from across the country and around the world to celebrate their business achievements, the company’s 50th anniversary and provide education, motivation and recognition.
Carlson began her Mary Kay business in 1989 and is currently an Independent Star Recruiter. At Seminar, Carlson was recognized for Queen of Sales for her unit of around 250 women.
“It was so fun celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Mary Kay Cosmetics with my sister consultants,” said Carlson. “Listening to the stories of the top people in Mary Kay was so inspirational and motivational. Helping women feel good about themselves through skin care and cosmetics and through the opportunity to be their own boss is what Mary Kay is all about. I love this business and learned many new things to share with my customers.”
This year, as part of The Mary Kay FoundationSM and Mary Kay Inc.’s longstanding commitment to prevent and end domestic violence, Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants were encouraged to bring gently-used professional attire to donate to domestic violence shelters as part of the annual Mary Kay “Suits for Shelters” program. Last year’s “Suits for Shelters” effort resulted in the donation of more than 2,500 gently-used outfits for domestic violence survivors seeking jobs.
Mary Kay’s 50th anniversary played a prominent role at this year’s Seminar. The theme “One Woman Can” pays tribute to company founder Mary Kay Ash and idea that one woman can change the world.
