My Week in Younique – Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies. Well, by the time you read this it may have come and gone for another year, as a guess, but wanted to say it just the same. For this My Week in Younique update, we’ll talk a bit about what’s been happening since the last update – like the new team mate Tabitha, how my new “Welcome Back Kit” arrived (and so I did a video for its unboxing), the February kudos and info on the next Younique incentive trip and a few links to blog posts about joining younique, sponsors, and frequently asked questions that you may not have seen this past week or so, too!

My Welcome Back Kit

Last month, Younique offered a sweet little incentive to welcome back lapsed presenters and they called it the Welcome Back Kit. I must admit I was a bit envious when I saw it – mostly for the bag but a few other things in it too…So imagine my joy when I learned that we were going to be able to buy it ourselves from February 1. Buy, I did. I couldn’t resist, and I even made a little video unboxing it, or rather just after I unboxed it.

Speaking of Welcomes…

Welcome to Tabitha – she is the newest recruit – and she hails from Wisconsin.

Welcome to Tabitha - the latest to #jointheAteam

February Kudos

To be honest with you I’d have hoped for something a bit more, ahem, romantic for February Kudos (last year was great) but this year it’s merely “Free shipping” over a certain amount. Basically if you buy some lashes and just about anything else you get Free shipping so from that standpoint it’s pretty decent…but like I say I’d have hoped they’d have thought a bit more out of the box for the Valentine Kudos…Maybe a pink lip stick or stain with a liner. Something….

Younique February 2016 Kudos - FREE SHIPPING

I think something a bit more cute and creative would have helped me reach my goal of 10,000 PRS which I am inching my way toward (and had hoped I’d reach this month). But hey ho, we got FREE SHIPPING. Better luck with March’s Kudos….or hopefully some new products.

I’ve heard there will be new Younique Products for March 2016 but have yet to see an official update on that. I await that news with baited breath. It’s always so very exciting when we launch new products, collections, kudos all at once! If it does happen in March – I will receive that new 10k charm – mark my words.

So anyway it’s a great time to join Younique. If you’re looking for a Younique sponsor then this, one of my latest posts, “How to Find a Younique Sponsor” may be helpful to you. That’s of course if you’re not interested in joining my team right now…or even if you are it’s some “food for thought”. I also just blogged another Younique FAQs post so if you have some questions before joining then why not have a look at them?

Younique’s Cruise

Younique has announced another incentive trip – this time to Mexico. I am not a huge fan of the idea of cruises to be honest with you (would rather a resort trip) but I have to say I kind of like the idea of this one so I am gonna go for it.

Follow @youniquedad on twitter | #youniquebythea

If I can earn it maybe I’ll take Younique Dad along. Don’t old folks love cruises?

That’s about all for another update of My Week in Younique. If there’s anything I can do to help you…please feel free to reach out. Details are up in the header here.

December Kudos – One Week In

Younique December Kudos

Do you fancy picking up a FREE brand new Liquid Eye Liner? You can’t even buy these babies yet, but you can get one if you buy a set of 3 Splurge Cream Eye Shadows in this month’s December Kudos.

Frankly this special offer is so good that I picked it up twice myself already (one for the US and one for the UK!!)

Besides as it’s so close to Christmas, I reckoned that I could give the Splurges away as gifts for family and friends. Well it makes perfect sense since Elegant (pictured top left) is just about my fave Younique product.

December Kudos - Splurge Cream Eye Shadow with Liquid Eye Liner
These Splurge Cream Eye Shadows are amazing and there are colours to suit all shades of peepers! I recommend the Elegant which is a shimmery beige and will look good on any eye lids! As my friend Heather says “It’s idiot proof – you just can’t put this stuff on wrong.” And you know what? She’s right! It is…But I also recommend Dainty.

Shop My December Kudos Party

creamebrush1You can pick up this amazing December Kudos here right now. Or if you’re getting a few of them, then I can create a party link just for you so you can potentially earn half-priced or even FREE makeup!

Oh and I’d also recommend the Cream Eye Shadow Brush – which I use every day myself.

This December Kudos will make a perfect gift for someone’s birthday, Christmas, any special occasion, or even as a pick-me-up for someone.

My Week in Younique – Finally, Blue Status

Welcome back to another instalment of My Week in Younique where this week I talk about my team’s achievements, how to get the 3D Fiber Lashes+ just in time for the holidays, the December Kudos (which is awesome by the way!) and my biggest news of all is that Black Friday made me BLUE status (Finally)!!!

Big High Five to Helen

Once again, my sole Aussie recruit, Helen, has kicked-ass. I’ve just noticed that two presenters signed up on my mother’s birthday and Helen was one. That has to be a great omen! Helen (pictured here with wee Amy) smashed sales in November, hitting Yellow status and outselling more than the next top selling presenter by more than double.

For that reason I’d really like to help her build her team up and reach the Fast Start promotion.

So for the next few inquiries I get here, I’ll have them sign up under her. They’ll still be a part of my team (entitled to any FREE Blogging or Social Media coaching) but they’ll signed up under Helen as their sponsor! Win/win as this gal’s going places!!

The trick I’m learning with Younique is to help your recruits build their teams. We are nothing without our teams. So it’s not just about having Younique recruits, it’s about formulating a team.

Personally speaking I’ve had lots of recruits in the first year, over 20, but 50% of whom haven’t done a thing…

Also worth mentioning is our next team presenter to promote up to Yellow since Helen was Louise. Well done girl!!

Also a big shout out to my fellow Cali Gals – Tina and Teri who are inching their way toward the Yellow promotion too! They may even make it this month collecting their pay-bump, up to 25%, just in time for Christmas.

More New Younique Product News: Buy the December Kudos!

So one of the most exciting things to happen this week is the announcement of the new December Kudos. Not only is it my fave product the Splurge Cream Eye Shadows but if you buy a set of three (and as luck would have it there are three new colours this month) – you get a FREE, brand new product – the Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eye Liner…How amazing is that? Of course I had to buy mine last night as I always aspire to have every Younique product in stock. (Any excuse right?)

3D Fiber Lashes+: One Set Left!

I currently am down to my last set of 3D Fiber Lashes in stock. Sold one this afternoon to a woman in Glasgow who phoned up last night needing a set for a present for her sister-in-law. We met, she paid me her £23 and received her 3D lashes and a FREE greeting card too.

Though I say I am down to my last set, there are five more sets (plus one from the Black Friday deal) that have been dispatched so do hope they arrive tomorrow or Saturday.

If you’re anywhere in the UK, for the next week, I can save you some money on shipping and you’ll receive them quicker but after next weekend I’ll be off for the holidays so act fast! To be fair if you needed some 3D lashes plus over the festive period I’m sure I’ll still sort you out. So yes, the choice is up to you whether you wish to buy direct from me (to save time and money) or order them online 24/7.

Younique Black Friday Made Me Blue

Finally, as many will know, I have been a Younique presenter since the company launched in the UK on November 1, 2014. I had not tried the products, just took a chance on the £69 kit start up cost and hoped for the best.Thea Newcomb - Officially a Blue Status Presenter with Younique

Well, as a social media trainer, Younique was a good fit for me. I already was on every channel there is (just about) and I know the basics of SEO as well.

So off I went and quickly qualified as White status, then Yellow, hit the “Fast Start” bonus and Pink…where I stalled for a year.

Younique is a fun of course, but often a very frustrating business. It’s definitely not for anyone who is just hoping to make a fast buck (or pound or euro). If I was only in it for the money I’d have quit nine months ago. It’s also not for anyone who is easily put off by other people’s negativity (family, friends, Younique haters etc). If you’re someone who isn’t of strong mind you’ll probably give up.

All Younique Levels - White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and BlackBut thankfully this week – thirteen months of tenacity paid off and I finally reached Blue Status with Younique! I’ve had a lot of people asking me what that actually means. Well for one it means I’m halfway up the Younique ladder (or so). Four more levels to go – Green, Orange, Purple and Black.

It also means I’ll make 4% on my company sales (the downline below me). Looking forward to that first Blue payment soon!

I will be honest with you – I was delighted to reach blue at 11:57pm Sunday night. It happened as I was on my weekly training call with my team – e.g. Kelly. She got to witness first hand as I almost started to cry with excitement, relief and a few other emotions. Though I have to be honest you, I’m proud of hitting Blue with its 4000 sales but right around now Green is looking impossible. Do hope it doesn’t take another thirteen months, like it did to reach blue status, to promote to the next level – GREEN!!

Only time will tell…

Don’t forget I’m now selling Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers in the UK. You buy them – and the recipient shops through me directly and I send them to the desired address! Easy peasy! Perfect for anyone who needs a last minute gift idea for the makeup lover in their life!

My Week in Younique – 3D Fiber Lashes+ & More

ANOTHER WEEK IN YOUNIQUE UPDATE

Wow it’s been a busy time with Younique so I’ve fallen a bit behind again…

So for today’s update – there are new July Kudos this month that look awesomeBuy new 3D Fiber Lashes+ from Younique by Thea, new members in my company, and of course the big news of the week (month or even year where Younique is concerned…) is that we launched our new 3D Fiber Lashes+.

EPIC NEWS FIRST

It’s been all go the past few weeks so I’ve not had time to do the My Week in Younique updates.Since July 1, 2015 it’s been all about the new mascara. I’ve already blogged quite a bit about the epic news and about how the mascara launched earlier this week. It was a crazy kind of cool and my first real, proper Younique product launch since joining last year.

JULY KUDOS

Get smitten with this Adorably Enamored Trio – this month’s kudos features two exclusive mineral pigments – Adorable and Enamored and our lovely liner/shader brush – while supplies last!
enamouredtrio
£ 25 GBP  / $32 USD / $39 CAD / $42 AUS / $45 NZD / $560 MEX

GREAT TIME TO JOIN

Right now, until we sell one million 3D Fiber Lashes, you can grab yourself a presenters kit with FREE shipping. Also until that million is sold you’re getting TWO sets of the lashes too. One to keep and one to sell or sell both…
So if you want the makeup, but have no interest in selling or recruiting, you don’t have to. Take the makeup and run.
Or become a presenter and just shop through your own link to remain active… To continue to be an active Younique presenter all you need to do is sell $125 every three months. That’s it. That equates to: £80 GBP / $170 AUD / $192 NZD / 1991 MEX / $162 CAD). In Younique we talk about things being done in mascara so that’s approximately five mascaras every ninety days.
The company is getting bigger all the time. Very proud of Kelly and Karen for recruiting Team new mates this month.

ALLO GERMANY

Younique  launches in Germany in just over one week and already we have had lots of interest from German lovelies hoping to get started as soon as we do. I’d especially love for fabulous, bi-lingual makeup lovers to #jointheAteam now.

UNTIL NEXT TIME…

That’s all I have time for but a new blog is on the way, hopefully this week about how running your Younique UK business may or may not effect your benefits if you’re claiming benefits like job seekers allowance etc. Will post as soon as I can!
