Along the way, Mary has…
…interviewed over 3,000 guests, advised thousands of wayward business owners, emceed a drag queen show, met a whole bunch of famous people, hosted a crash course in the principles of capitalism to a delegation of Soviet women, guided thousands of wanna-be bosses to making their dreams a reality and shown professional women how to drink & enjoy brown liquor.
