*“What’s Holding You Back?”

Are there situations in your life that you feel are holding you back from:

  • Keeping gratifying relationships?
  • Landing the ideal opportunity?
  • Achieving the perfect self-image?
  • Enjoying inner peace?
  • Progressing in your Mary Kay career?
  • Gaining financial independence?
  • Etc…etc…

These issues and others will be addressed in some very insightful, authentic ways to help you recognize, resolve, and take your personal power back! This Mary Kay presentation is guaranteed to create a change that is more than cosmetic.


“The Journey: From Dreams to Reality”

What do you want out of life? Where do you want life to take you? What would you make happier, or give your life more meaning? This provocative, inspirational presentation will enable you to answer these questions by helping you to focus on the values of setting Mary Kay goals, establishing a Mary Kay game plan for life, with a healthy balance of family, career, and personal and emotional needs.


“How To Stay Positive In a Very Negative World”

Do you want to do things with your life as opposed to having things done to your life? This Mary Kay “Check-up from the neck up” will help prevent a “hardening of the attitudes,” and show you how to get yourself “Up” when you get “Down.” It will also help you and your Mary Kay team stop “Majoring in Minors.” This is an enjoyable and “fun” presentation!



Based on my book, this inspiring presentation is designed to change your way of thinking. In this great country of ours, you can be anything you want to be. Reflecting upon the Mary Kay philosophy, and the company’s priorities of God first, family second, and career third, this powerful presentation is will inspire women to achieve their dreams. My challenge is to have you….Dare to Dream… Dare to Create…Dare to Become the Person You Really Know You Want to be……”DARE TO BE GREAT.”

Gerry was fabulous. Please let him know that our unit enjoyed him so much. He did such a great job with all the men, and really took the time to personalize his presentation to their interests and inquires. One of my newest consultants said that if she wasn’t already a Beauty Consultant, she would have signed up on the spot after listening to Gerry!  I just hope we can get him back again!!!

Thanks a million to him and Olga for coming all the way to Bless us like that.
