I love seeing people step out of their comfort zone to create opportunity for themselves. Esteban Garcia has become an "M Word Consultant" and works with his 7 year old daughter. For men the learning curve takes more time than for a woman. I love the fact that he is including Mia in this adventure because it gives her an early start with entrepreneurship. Esteban seems like a very loving and dedicated parent! Good luck to both of them!

Colorado Springs Man and his Daughter, 7, Work as a Team in the Sales World of Mary Kay
The veteran salesman saw an opportunity to work at home and spend even more time with his daughter in Mary Kay, the cosmetics company responsible for launching fleets of pink Cadillacs onto the nation's roads. Pioneering Dallas businesswoman Mary Kay Ash started the company, built on "enriching women's lives," in 1963, with only $5,000. Today, it brings in more than $3 billion annually and has 3 million independent salespeople in 35 countries. As of 2012, fewer than 1 percent of those salespeople were men.
"I've done sales since I was 18. I've sold men's suits and sold jewelry," Esteban says. Makeup, however, wasn't exactly in his wheelhouse. "I had to learn quite a bit about skin care and makeup. In the future, it will pay off. For proms or homecomings, I can do her makeup and as she grows older I can help her keep her skin healthy."
Let's not forget the pink car, awarded to the company's top earners.
"We could definitely use a new car. They could paint it plaid, I'd be good," he says.
When Esteban started the business in February, he didn't think about involving Mia - at least not in a real sense. But then he realized he was missing a perfect opportunity to teach his daughter about responsibility, as well as the other basic skills that go into running a business.
