    Sales advice with religious counsel

    Let the pink Cadillac ladies jumpstart your sales career. When Mary Kay cosmetics salespeople succeed, they drive off with a big pink car. Mary Kay executive Gillian Hennessy-Ortega, one of those drivers, offers tips about goal setting, customer development and personal growth in an excellent career manual with an insightful mix of advice and examples. The book excels when delivering inspiration about setting goals. Hennessy-Ortega provides a spirited discussion about finding the right balance among home, work and spiritual growth. The author does make a heavy push for Christianity, so if you¿d rather get sales advice without religious counsel, this may not be for you. But if old-time inspiration is part of your motivational package, we believe this book can serve as a productive tool for personal and career growth.
