Well what can I tell you for this week’s My Week In Younique? March is in full swing, and the first person to get an order in was the lovely Marie! Well, if you don’t count my Kid in a Candy Store (pictured here) purchase for myself!…Marie sold several Lip Stains which is fantastic. Have you used a Lip Stain? I hadn’t. They are – Smudge-proof. Smooch–proof. Worry- free. Sadly, I either left my lovely Lip Stain (from the Customer Kudos back in November) in California over the holidays, or I’ve lost it between there and here somewhere.
So frankly my new collection can’t come quick enough. Actually I was sorely tempted to buy the seven Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stains set! That’s the danger of being a Younique presenter, I tell ya…I blogged about it this weekend already in “If You Love Makeup Don’t Become a Younique Presenter”. As I often say here, I was never a big makeupy person, before and, even I, am totally obsessed with Younique products. It’s crazy-addictive. You’ve been warned!
Thea A-Team Challenges
Well I promised I would be as transparent as possible as I was documenting my first foray into Direct Sales (MLM) so here goes…I am delighted to have grown a pretty big company in a fairly short space of time. Though I hear other top level presenters talking about how many recruits they have made in just a few months, I do my best to not compare myself to anyone else. I have set my target to grow a big team and all my efforts almost are placed on that. I’m 100% committed to growing my team for a few reasons…
First reason, rather obviously, is that the only way to make any real money in this business is to grow a big team. When I first joined, I heard some stories about one Younique Sponsor having recruited 200 team mates, yet had 21,000 in her downline. When I heard that, I thought, “Ok, that’s my goal”.
Another reason to recruit is because it’s a numbers game in direct sales. Even in this short space of time, I’ve already had one person “drop off” my team because they didn’t qualify. There’s still time for them to re-qualify and they may do so, but what happens is, if you don’t qualify every three months, you’re considered inactive. You still have another 3 more months to get reinstated, so you never know, they may bounce back. In addiction to that one, I have a few more who will be struck off by the end of the month if they don’t miraculously sell their 125 PRS (personal retail sales – which is only around $125 – so 5 mascaras in any 90 day period is all you need to sell really).
I think I mentioned, in a previous blog, a stat that I heard in the early weeks of joining Younique, and that was “20% of your recruits will earn you 80% of your money”. I can see how that would be true or even is true in my case. Only about 20% of my team is doing anything at all. That tells me I need to grow a bigger team and ideally find more people like me (and my 20%) who want to build a proper business. Who want to put in the time to really make a living out of this. Hungry team mates.
Younique is NOT a ‘Get Rich Quick’ Biz
If you want to join Younique to make some fast cash, it’s probably going to disappoint you. It is work for most of us and frankly quite a lot of it! Thankfully I love it so much it doesn’t feel like work, but it’s been a lot of time invested into growing my business, learning as much as I can about the company and direct sales in general, making images to share on social media, blogging, etc. I see the past few months as sowing the seeds, and they’re starting to bloom. I’ve had my first enquiries through this very blog to join my younique team. One person private messaged me on Facebook asking to join! So all my work is starting to potentially pay off. I am happy to be a Younique sponsor to anyone anywhere in the UK, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico too (Plus later this year Younique will launch in Germany too!) While I welcome absolutely anyone to #theAteam, as I say, I would specifically love to find dedicated and committed makeup lovers to join the team who want to make this a career!
To Cap Off My Week in Younique!
Well it’s about time to close for another week, but I will leave with one final, small promotional update…My two baseball hats and pink shirt arrived on Tuesday, I believe. They were made by a company down in England called the Cap Factory…
I acquired several quotes for branded baseball hats in Scotland, and they were all coming in pretty expensive for one-offs, but not the Cap Factory. I got them £14.95 (embroidered) each, so I was pretty impressed. The shirt’s so pink it could stop traffic!
One minor complaint was that the bills on the hats are a bit big and wide, but to be fair, I had opted for clearance hats! It meant the quality wasn’t 100% ideal, but as I say, I would definitely order from them again and choose better quality hates!
If you’re looking for branded one-off hats, I recommend you speak to Wendy at the Cap Factory and tell her Thea sent you!
It’s not that cheap to get them all, let me tell you, but I have been strategic in my purchases and the Younique makeup collections are a great way to go!
My Past Week in Younique
Each week (or so), I do a blog called “My Week in Younique”. The MWY blogs started here and has grown on a weekly basis – documenting my experiences of being a Younique Presenter and Sponsor of a global team,…but this post today is a little different,…It’s about my feeding what, for all intents and purposes, I’d classify is a Younique addiction!
Love Buying Younique Products!
Danger danger! As February ended, all I want to do is shop on my own website. Again. So last weekend, because the sale price of the Moodstruck Mineral Pigment set of 4 (update now called Moodstruck Pressed Shadow Refills) – was going back up to its original price (after a catalog misprint last time), I had to buy them.
No, really, I did have to.
Also, even though I already had the makeup, I wanted the cute pink glam bag in the Love it Bundle that was only available during February, well, I had to buy that too.At least I wasn’t the only one who grabbed that cute offer… Younique mailed the other day us to say we sold:
“61,448 of them! That’s more than 2,000 a day…100 per hour…more than a bundle a minute, all month long!”
Fast forward to March. As it kicked off, as you may know, we came out with six new products, and as I didn’t have them, I had to buy them too. Rather aptly named, I purchased the Kid in the Candy Store Collection (no longer available but other Younique collections are always found here:)
Do you see how being a Younique Presenter might be a challenge? As most of my friends will attest, I’ve never been a big “makeupy sort person” before joining Younique. (Frankly some old college friends at a New Year’s Eve party shared their absolute “shock” of my new venture because it was so “left field”.) Since joining Younique though. I admit, it’s become a total obsession! I guess as far as addictions go, it’s not a terrible one to have, but still…it’s an addiction none the less.
Yes the makeup’s great, and I genuinely love running my own Younique business, but it does sort of defeat the purpose when you’re running your own business, and seemingly all the money you’re making, you’re just investing back in your own company (e.g makeup collection). Or feeding your addiction! That’ what it feels like I am doing…at times!
My Younique Rationale?
Naturally, addictions aside, if you are going to run a business efficiently, you need to be knowledgable about all the products.
You have to be able to have them, show them, talk about the and, in this business, photograph them (sometimes even on yourself) so it’s pretty easy to rationalize all my makeup purchases each month.
BONUS? The fact that it’s a legitimate tax write-offonly adds to the pure joy of running my Younique company. But if you’re a total makeup addict already, this is definitely not going to cure you of your addiction. In fact, you’re probably going to be even more guilty than me of being your own top customer…and hey, if that does describe you, then I’d love for you to #jointheAteamnow! 😉
In summary, jokey blog title aside, I have no regrets at all joining Younique so far. Remember, there are much worse addictions out there, so you may as well join me now and have some healthy, empowering fun playing with, and promoting, makeup across the globe! Right? Right!
