Law to Lipstick--Ann Martin

Episode 12

Anne Martin, Independent Senior Sales Director, Mary Kay Cosmetics.

Anne left a fifteen year legal year in 1991 to start a home based business with Mary Kay Cosmetics. Her dramatic career change “from law to lipstick” was motivated by a desire for a more balanced lifestyle and the desire to positively impact other women.
When Anne became an independent sales director in 1992, this offered her an even greater opportunity to mentor and coach other beauty consultants in starting their own businesses. She has mentored and coached hundreds of women in starting their own businesses. Her unit has been recognized nationally for their sales achievements for thirteen consecutive years. Her greatest joy is giving her job away by empowering other women to promote themselves to the position of sales director within the Mary Kay organization.

During her challenging transition from the legal profession to entrepreneurship, Anne enjoyed the wonderful support of her sister business owners in the Pittsburgh chapter of NAWBO.
She served on the board from 1993 until 1995.
When she re-joined NAWBO in 2003, she served as Chairman of the Program Committee for two years and has also been a co-chair of the Make the Connection Luncheon on two occasions.
Anne also served as a lector for several years at her church, Sacred Heart and on various parent committees in her son’s schools.

In seeking to inspire, encourage and empower other women in the community, Anne has volunteered as an image consultant with the Corporate Collection – an organization that assists women in making the transition into the work force. Anne has also reached out to a group of women who are often overlooked and stigmatized – women recovering from drug and alcohol addictions.
She has served on the board of the Pennsylvania Organization for Women in Early Recovery (POWER) for two consecutive terms including three years as Chairman of the Development and Public Relations Committee.
She also served on the Executive Committee as well as on the Power/ZOAR Merger Committee. She is currently working with the Development Committee on several future fundraising ventures.

Anne’s mission is to inspire women to discover their life’s purpose and uncover their inner greatness. She is working on a book From Law To Lipstick and offers presentations on career change, life makeovers, and relationship marketing.

She can be reached at (412) 422 7818 or acmmk@hotmail.com
