“One Woman Can” was the theme for Mary Kay’s 50th Anniversary Seminar, which I attended last month in Dallas, TX. Our first motivational speaker inspired me to come up with my own “One Woman Can” phrases that embody who I am and why I love my Mary Kay business. National Sales Directors told stories upon stories about how their Mary Kay business changed their lives for the better. I took these ideas to heart.

As a Mary Kay consultant who works primarily with the trans-women community, I believe I can change women’s lives for the better. I’ve seen client after client who thanked me, hugged me, and cried in front of me after their makeovers, telling me they have never looked so beautiful or felt so good about themselves! I love seeing the huge smile on the girls’ faces as they look in the mirror after fastening their corsets, donning feminine attire, and having their makeup applied. I love coaxing them to pose for the camera and to embrace who they are including their beauty. I encourage them to see and embrace the many beautiful and positive feminine traits that they have.

Many of my makeover clients have become my friends. Yesterday, I went shopping with four girlfriends at Pentagon City Mall, including three transgender clients who have become friends. Two presented as female and the other as male. First, Kerri insisted on introducing us to Belle at Michael Kors. Belle had helped Kerri find a gorgeous pink and black dress when Kerri was in “drab” (boy mode). Then we went jeans shopping for Kerri at Macy’s, jewelry and dress shopping for Allison at Icing and Forever 21, and accessory shopping for Jasmine (in drab) at Icing.

Because of my makeover business, my team members in my Mary Kay Unit based in Lancaster, PA, have increased their awareness of transgender women. Many of my friends have increased their awareness, acceptance and inclusion my trans-women friends and hang out with my trans-friends with and without me. I will continue to share my story and business concept with others.

One woman can… live by her core values while running her own business and changing the world around her!

I seek to never have to work for someone else again while running my business and life by my core values. My core values include the following: authenticity, rewarding relationships, diversity, passion, warmth, and fun.

Authenticity: I love to be able to be honest about who I am while continuing to explore and learn more about myself. I want to create that environment for my clients as well, especially as it relates to exploring their gender identities.

Rewarding Relationships: I’m a big believer in friendships and community. I love helping girls get introduced to other trans-ladies in a comfortable environment where they can learn from each other.

Diversity: I invite people from across my social circles to parties and events, seeking to build understanding, acceptance, and inclusion across the LGBT and allied communities.

Passion, warmth and fun: These traits really make up much of who I am. I’m excited about life, my work, and people. I love bringing happiness and acceptance to my clients. I seek to be approachable so girls can feel comfortable almost immediately. I love to meet new people and make new friends.

    I love this so much! I wish I could find a way to reach out to the trans community where I live and help them all feel more beautiful, loved, and accepted.

    You are a true blessing for these women!

    This is an excellent affirmation! I’m sure the girls you help and teach feel this every time they see you!

    Beth,

    Thank you for the kind and thoughtful reply to my comments about Saturday’s initial, and first of many, trips to the mall (or anywhere else we decide to go) presenting as Kerri. You absolutely hit a home run on each of your mission statements/objectives as part of your One Woman Can initiative that was inspired by attending the conference you attended. Beth, you have been a tremendous inspiration, friend and encouragement to me in the four short months that we’ve known each other and I’m looking forward to Your support and encouragement as I work through being as passable as possible on those occasions that I can present as Kerri.

    You made me radiantly beautiful and gave me a huge confidence boost before leaving for the mall. Then when we were at the mall, the whole time I was there felt natural and I felt like the “real” me, if that makes any sense. It was a day that I’ll store away in my memory bank and reflect on when needed to get me through a less than fun day of not being Kerri. You are, without question a valuable ally to trans-women in the DC Metro area (and beyond).

    Sincerely and authentically,

    Kerri

    Yesterday was a relaxed, first class afternoon with you and your friends, Beth. It was an amazing, fun, shopping trip for me and I didn’t feel nervous at all walking into the mall, but instead I felt like “me”, confident, laid back and blessed to experience the first of many shopping trips like this. Quite honestly, I was more comfortable and natural as Kerri than I’ve ever been in my life presenting as not Kerri. I look forward to future shopping trips and going out for meals with you and other girls VERY soon.

      Kerri, I’m so thrilled that you feel and look beautiful and confident. I was so proud to go shopping with you and introduce myself as your friend.
      Til next time, Beth 🙂
