Banks has consistently beaten the odds to achieve phenomenal success in her life and business. She defied dyslexia to earn a college degree and a Harvard MBA, left an abusive marriage and a corporate career at IBM 20 years ago to sell lipstick – quickly ascending to Elite Executive National Sales Director with Mary Kay, Inc. – ultimately being ranked as #3 in the U.S. and #1 for an African American.
One of the most important skills that helped her soar to the top is her decision making ability. Making good decisions is a positive; making bad decisions can always be fixed; but sitting immobilized and not making a decision at all is a problem. Join us while Gloria explores the art of decision making and the risks involved for avoidance and procrastinating.
