EBONY Magazine is featuring beauty industry magnate and motivational speaker Dr. Gloria Mayfield Banks in the Business column of its March 2014 Edition. This edition was released on February 11th for online magazine subscribers and will be available February 15th in print, on newsstands. The feature piece will highlight how Gloria overcame dyslexia, domestic violence, and a painful divorce, to obtain a MBA from Harvard University and become a multi-millionaire entrepreneur with Mary Kay Cosmetics, recording over 8 million in earnings. She also shares her motivational blueprint for achieving success.
Dr. Gloria Mayfield Banks earned an MBA from Harvard University, and holds an honorary doctorate in Public Service & Humane Letters from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Gloria joined Mary Kay Cosmetics in 1988. As a single mother of 2, she began her record-breaking ascent to Elite Executive National Sales Director faster than anyone in the company’s 50-year history. Gloria is 1 of only 3 women who currently hold this position in the entire United States. Since January 2007, Gloria has trained thousands of career professionals, both nationally and internationally in the U.S., China, Russia, Mexico, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa, Kazakhstan, and most recently in Brazil. She has since been featured in numerous national publications such as Glamour, Black Enterprise, and Fortune Magazine. She has also been featured on several national TV shows including Good Morning America, CNBC’s THE BIG IDEA, and CNN with Soledad O’Brien.
This feature article in EBONY will be the segue to launch Gloria’s latest venture “What It Takes”, an online series of professional development classes for the aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs. This series will focus on effectively addressing key leadership skills and helping participants develop success-oriented mindsets. "I love being a role model for others because I know it can be difficult to get motivated and see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will never forget fighting to lift myself up to find my way. My goal is to give other aspiring leaders guidance and motivation, so they don't have to re-invent the wheel", says Gloria. Beginning March 1, 2014, the “What It Takes“ series will be available online at http://www.gloriamayfieldbanks.com.
