Once upon a time, I became a Mary Kay consultant. Yes … a person who rarely wears makeup was selling makeup! But do you know what I remember most about that time in my life?
The insistence that a woman cannot look professional unless she’s wearing a dress.
Yep, you got it. They wanted me to believe that a nice pant suit or set of trousers and matching blazer could never look professional on a woman.
Boy, did that ever rankle me. And I pretty much ignored that rule and did my own thing anyway.
So why am I telling you this?
Because it illustrates a point.
