Youniqueiversary – 2 Years On

My Youniqueiversary – 2 Years On

So pleased to report that today is my two-year anniversary as a Younique presenter and sponsor. My Youniqueiversary, if you will. This post will pick up from last year’s My Year In Younique post. Over the last year, I have continued to detail the highs and lows of being a Younique Presenter*. It’s not easy to be Younique, but overall I still love presenting, as much as the day I joined, two years ago. And:

  • I’ve continued to recruit presenters – nearly 35 to date – which isn’t too bad (without trying).
  • I’ve reached another level.
  • The new products, ranges, kits, kudos, catalogues and so forth – help to keep things fresh and interesting for me.

 Low Point of the Year

Arguably, the lowest point of my year, was having someone nark on me for my unsanctioned “dedicated Younique blog”. Whoops! My bad.

I was essentially busted for not having sought approval of the blog. Hands up, that was my own fault but I’d run it for a year and a half before ever being nailed, so I can only assume that someone complained.

Being shut down killed my Younique mojo for quite some time. Months, if I am being honest. Not only mine, but it also killed the morale of some of my team mates. It really wasn’t good. I believe that I lost presenters as a result.

So please make sure if you have a dedicated Younique blog that you seek approved by compliance. Read the Presenter guide carefully and do learn from my mistake! Please.

So after some soul searching, I took some time out, regrouped and set up the more general blog that you see here today. Now, instead of only dealing with makeup company, it features my greeting cards business and any anything noteworthy that I come across. Gifts, businesses or even people who deserve some coverage! Recently I featured the lovely Anna from My Cupcake Toppers.

High Point of the Year

At the end of November 2015, I finally climbed up another rung on the ladder to reach Blue status with Younique. To reach blue you need to sell $4000 with your team. That was one of the best Thea Newcomb Blue Statusmoments of my entire business life. Seriously, it felt amazing to receive that order that pushed me to the next level – halfway up the ladder, or so.

When I joined Younique, I thought I’d be black status in a matter of months. That was my goal. Green by March and Black later in the year. To be honest, that was rather naive.

Sure, some Younique presenters have achieved the top ranks fast, but honestly, the vast majority haven’t and probably won’t. We currently have over half a million Younique presenters and just over 200 have reached Black Status levels 1, 2 ,3. Do the math.

The hardest part about sponsorship is seeing people join, often do excellent work for a while, and then they give up for whatever reason. Life gets in the way. They buckle to negative family and friend’s comments. They get frustrated that they’re not making any money it. I’ve always taken the “in it for the long haul” approach to Younique. Slow and steady. Some months I do really well and others not good at all. Generally I am pleased if it pays a bill or two. Plus I love getting discounted makeup.Join Younique - #jointheAteam

Should You Join Younique?

Well you might be wondering “Should I join Younique?” and the answer is that it depends. It’s not for everyone. I love it still. I love the products. If you’re solely looking for a way to earn quick cash then it may not be for you…It could be, but probably not. I’d rather have you join with realistic expectations.

If you like the idea of something you can run alongside something else, enjoy discounted makeup, have a bit of fun, and want to make some new friends along the way – then it probably will suit you quite well.

In the worse case scenario – you get all the makeup in the picture above for an amazing rate. The Younique Presenters Kit changes regularly. It’s always a great mix of products, regardless. So even if you join for the kit (become a “kit snatcher”) it’s probably worth it just for that.

My Week in Younique – Viva España

Hola España! Welcome and here we go with another short update My Week in Younique – talking new team mates, a new territory, si España, and the return of Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation (well, sort of…) Read on, lovely.

Younique Says “Hola Espana”

If I was a betting woman I’d have won the bet on the next territory we’d launch in. It made perfect sense as we first had Germany, then France and next up it’s Espana – or Spain for those who do not hablo espanol. Of course!
Hola Espana - Younique Launches in Spain 2016

If you’re in Spain, you’ll be able to Join Younique in a matter of weeks! How wonderful is that? España – if you are looking for a sponsor then I’d love to have you. If you want some more info on How to Find a Younique Sponsor read that first.

WELCOME TO THE ATEAM CARI

Yesterday I was delighted to welcome Cari the newest team member to #JointheAteam – from Nevada. This after welcoming Tabitha, also in America, recently too!

Welcome Cari

One of the most wonderful thing about Younique is getting to make friends around the world. Look forward to getting to know these latest recruits in the coming weeks and months and hope that they love Younique as much as I do.

ORDER TOUCH FOUNDATION FAST

There is a lot of controversy surrounding the Younique Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation. It was out for a few months, then it went a bit viral and sold out in every shade. I blogged that the Younique Foundation is back – already this week so I won’t go too much into that but the very good news is that for a limited time only you can order the foundation right now in the Cloud 9 Collection.

Liquid Foundation - Ltd Time Only - Cloud 9

Personally I can’t wait for my Cloud 9 collection to arrive because I was already in need of a new Dainty (one of my faves of all Younique products), the Addiction Palette number 1 because I hadn’t been able to purchase it and to replace my Ritzy lipstick because I think I had left mine in California. So all that plus the new travel-size makeup bag makes me very excited indeed.

That’s about all for this week. Don’t forget we have a “Free Shipping” offer going on this month – on orders over a certain amount. That’s February’s Younique Kudos. So happy shopping, you’re welcome!

I leave you with a happy “bienvenidos España”. Hope to see you on my team soon, chica! xo

Oh before I go, let me leave you with a new video this week “¡Younique va a España!”:

Younique Presenter Levels and Commissions

Understanding Younique Presenter Levels & Commissions

commission-chart

Younique Glossary of Terms (to help with the following post)

  • Presenter: effectively Younique’s name for a distributor or sales rep
  • Sponsor: a presenter who recruits other team members to join their Younique team
  • PRS: Personal Retail Sales (what a presenter personally sells each month)
  • Qualified First Level: A presenter who sells 125 PRS in a rolling 3 month period
  • Company Wholesale Sales (CWS): What a presenter and their entire downline sells each month
  • Circle Sales: This is a presenter’s and his or her downline’s sales – excluding any of their Green status or higher and their downlines (those people have “spun off” in essence)
  • Wholesale Sales: 75% of Retail Sales. The remaining value of the original sales amount after Retail Royalties/Commission have been deducted
  • Qualified First Generation Elite:

Younique Background

What is Younique? Launched in Utah by a sister and brother, Younique is a direct sales company that sells naturally-based makeup, skin care and beauty products – direct to its customers.

The Younique products are not sold in any stores. They are sold mostly through online channels like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Linkedin or blogs such as this one!

The presenter is paid their commissions approximately three hours after every sale through their website.

Younique’s compensation plan features a colourful-tiered-ladder of eight levels — starting with White and going all the way up to the top spot which is Black Status.

This post will outline the eight Younique presenter levels, and the commission levels of each level. Commissions range from 20% at entry level – up to a maximum of 30%.

We never earn more than 30% commissions – that’s the max for Younique presenters.

Reminder that PRS stands for “Personal Retail Sales”

Entry Presenter: Younique White status – (20% commission)

All Younique Levels - White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and BlackEvery Younique presenter starts earning 20% commission from day one. So from your very first order placed through your website (either by you or someone else), you will receive your 20% commission – approximately three hours after the sale…That’s every_single_time!!

That’s amazing isn’t it? It’s so fun to receive those payment notifications like clockwork!

Entry Presenter: Younique Yellow status – (25% commission)

Once you sell 1000 PRS (personal retail sales) which equates to $1000 or roughly £690 (depending on exchange rate), you will become a Yellow level presenter.

You reach Yellow all on your own sales – and can take as long as you need to reach it. I aimed to reach it ASAP as I wanted that pay-bump up to 25%.

Exemplary Presenter: Younique Pink status – (25% commission)

Unfortunately, you can’t move up passed Yellow until you start to build a team. So if you have no interest in recruiting team members, you will only ever get to Yellow, and never be able to go beyond that.

But if you do want to progress up the ladder, then your next stop after Yellow will be Pink.

To reach pink you have to sell 250 PRS personally – plus you and your company needs to sell 2000 PRS (you can do that all on your own or with your team), and finally you need one qualified presenter.

A qualified first level presenter is someone who has sold their 125 PRS that month. So every month that you hope to hit Pink, you need to do that PRS amount, have a qualified presenter and sell at least 2000 in company-wide sales.

Exemplary Presenter: Younique Blue status – (25% commission)

Younique Blue status is effectively double that of Pink. You need to still sell your own 250 PRS, but your sales need to be 4000 Company Wide Sales, and this time you have to have two qualified first-level presenters.

younique presenter levels

Elite Presenter: Younique Green status – (30 % commission)

Younique Green status is the next level up the Younique presenter ladder. Sadly (for me anyway), it’s not just double the Blue figures, it’s a lot more than that!

The good news is that now you’re earning 30% commission on sales – which is the top level a Younique presenter can make in commissions as I stated above.

To reach Green level with Younique, you need to personally sell 500 PRS, your company must sell 10,000 PRS (that’s about £6950!! at the moment) and have three qualified first level presenters.

In addition to all the above, you also have to have 2000 in circle wholesale sales*.

This is where I’ve always started to get totally confused, I’ll be honest with you.

* Wholesale amounts are calculated at 75% of the Personal Retail Volume of all commissionable sales.

Frankly, I am rather in awe that anyone can get to Green – let alone beyond it

Elite Presenter: Younique Orange Status (30% commission)

Rising up from Green level status, it’s up now to Orange level. To reach Orange level with Younique, you need sell the same 500 PRS as the previous Green stage, but as a company you need to have 20,000 in company wide sales. Again three qualified first-level presenters, 4000 circle wholesale sales and 1 first generation elites. So someone in your company needs to hit green before you can promote up.

Man that’s a doozy – in my opinion.

Exclusive Presenter: Younique Purple status (30% commission)

The penultimate level with Younique is Purple level.

You also move up to “exclusive level” from “elite” status presenter.

To reach Purple, you need to sell your 500 PRS still, and your company needs to sell 40,000. You have to have four qualified first level presenters, 6000 circle wholesale sales, and this time you have to have two first generation elites.

Oh my!

Exclusive Presenter: Younique Black status (30% commission)

Aiming for Black Status - Younique by TheaThe ultimate level to reach as a Younique Presenter is Black Status.

To become a Younique Black level presenter you have to be the ultimate rockstar. You still need to sell your personal 500 PRS. Your whole company has to sell 80,000. You need four qualified first level presenters. The circle wholesale sales need to reach 10,000, and if that weren’t enough you need to have FOUR first generation elites.

I thought it would be interesting to know exactly how many Younique women (and men) reach Black status with the company.

I suspect, as a total guess, for every one Black Status Younique Presenter, there are twenty or thirty thousand who aren’t. Don’t quote me on that. I’m sorta making it up. At the time of writing this post there are currently 371,621 presenters around the world and 69 are currently an active Black Status presenter. So yeah, only the best of the best make it that far.

To add to that, there are now three levels of Younique Black status….and you can even earn a car incentive…

Younique Black Level status - Car Incentive

Well that about covers it. I hope that answered your questions. If not feel free to message me if you have them. I’ll do my best to answer any.

Incidentally, I am currently BLUE and aiming for GREEN, but to be honest with you, I think I’d be content to remain at Green level for the foreseeable.

When I first started with Younique I was aiming for Black, thinking I’d be there in six months, but then reality sort of set in, and now I think I’d feel content with Green. At least for this year. I could always change my mind as my company grows (more than forty now!) and my teamies start promoting up too…

But for now, I’d be happy with Green. What about you?

How to Find a Younique Sponsor

How to find a Younique Sponsor - Younique by TheaWondering How to Find a Younique Sponsor?

Did you end up here because you’re wondering how to find a Younique Sponsor that suits you? Need to know how to join Younique but not really sure where to start? Have a few more questions about sponsors before taking the plunge? Let me see if I can offer some guidance by sharing some of the questions that I have been getting since joining Younique myself…

But first…

Recruiting Youniques – Peaks and Valleys

Because of the holidays, it’d been quiet in terms of my recruiting. Actually January sales were a bit dead too, I won’t lie to you…

It’d been maybe two months since I had someone join my team* – and only a few of my gals in the company have had recruits too.

But once January kicked in, properly, so did the queries about joining Younique. Hoorah!

Guess it makes sense that things are quiet over the holiday period. People are wrapped up with festivities and/or they’re strapped (financially). Once payday rolls around, let the recruiting begins!

Anyway I noticed a huge spike in many of my Younique posts about joining us, (especially on this post here that you may have seen?), and so I thought it might be a good time to answer some of these questions that I’ve been getting lately about finding a sponsor. I figure if one person has had it – there are bound to be others so here we go!

FAQs About Younique Sponsors

When the following are in quotes, they are real questions copied and pasted. In other cases, without quotes, they were paraphrased or amalgamated, from several on the same topic!

1. “Could you advise me if you require a sponsor to join Younique and if so how I go about this?”

Yes, you need to have a sponsor in order to join Younique. You can choose to find one on the map on the Yoounique products website.

You can simply Google “younique sponsor near me” (or whatever) to find one, OR you can #jointheateam now. (PS: That’s my team, Thea Team, aka The A team! Well, I had to say that, right?)

2. “Does it Matter Where Your Younique Sponsor Lives?”

This is actually a very common question

If it does to you, then yes, but realistically-speaking, not in this day and age.

Personally speaking, I have recruits in the US, Canada, Australia and England, and I am based in Glasgow (or Northern California for part of the year).

With Younique you can work your business wherever you are (as long as we are in that region) and you sign up under or have people sign up under you from anywhere! How cool is that?

Yep, I have a truly global company right now! 🙂

I signed up under a woman in the Scottish Highlands, who was a friend-of-a-friend. I had never met her but had spoken to her on the phone.

She has since left the business, so I was then placed under her sponsor who I don’t really know too well, but hey, she’s there if I need her.

3. “I am wanting to know if it is better to go under a black sponsor or white (does it matter) what kind of sponsor I have?”

Wow, this is an excellent question, which I heard today, in fact. Here’s what I told her (though slightly edited):

I personally think you should just pick whoever resonates with you…to be honest.

Once you’re in, you will gradually gravitate toward some higher ups. Find someone whose willing to mentor/coach you – if you need it!

I suppose I’d say go with someone who is ambitious, and is actively working their business, so probably not white or even yellow really. Chose Pink or above.

That said, whites and yellows have to get some recruits to promote up – so that’s not a hard and fast rule either. Follow your gut!

Welcome Sharon - she's the latest to #jointheateamOn that note, what I’ve done to help any of my recruits, who are proactively working their business, is I’ve had some recruits sign up under them*.

If I see someone starting out who’s working their business and struggling to get recruits for whatever reason, and I know they really want to promote up, I essentially give them my recruits! That’s why I’ve personally not had any new recruits for a while (until today when I welcomed Sharon my team).

I’m in the process of writing an interesting, if a little controversial, blog about sponsors and uplines. Look out for that one soon, but in the meantime, I’d say it doesn’t hugely matter who your sponsor is, as your success will ultimately be down to you.

There are so many Younique FB groups to join, a good “back office”, loads of webinars and youtube videos…

If anything, it’s like trying to drink a sip of water from a fire hydrant (there’s that much Younique stuff out there).

I believe you’ll find your path. You’ll find the people and the channels to work your business your way, if you want to.

So no you are not necessarily better off signing up under a Black vs Blue for instance.

4. Does my sponsor make money off me?

This is asked a lot in a variety of ways (so therefor not in actual quotes).

Basically I believe the question is “Do you as my sponsor benefit by me joining your team?”

The answer is a tricky one. It’s actually a yes and no response!

I don’t make any money off of someone just joining my Younique team.

  • As a sponsor, I don’t make money on you joining and simply buying your kit.
  • I only make money when I start to qualify for pink and above. So if I qualify for pink, blue, green etc…I make varying percentages on my whole downline – that’s my recruits and theirs too. (Yippee)
  • So really how you start to make any real money with Younique is, you have to sell the basic requirements for each level (e.g. for pink and blue 250 personal sales, green and orange 500 personal sales on up…) – as well as to help my team promote up too. With Younique, you can’t promote up past Yellow – without having a team, and you can’t really earn on your team until you start promoting to the higher levels.
  • I’ve had several recruits join my team and then never sell anything at all, and then drop off.

    So they didn’t benefit me at all.

Incidentally, for every ten or so who join my team – two or three seem to actually work their business.

More than a year later, I’ve finally started to get a team of women who are working Younique, and that benefits me, which is awesome.

If you hope to make some real money with Younique, then you have essentially two ways – 1) you will need to recruit well and train them to recruit too…or 2) you will need to be a rock star seller – who sells, sells, sells tons of products!

5. “My sponsor resigned, and corporate filled in the blank with another person. Can this be changed? Can I be part of your team? Do you have any idea how that would work? Can you make that happen as an up line person?”

Oh boy, I sure wish I could! My own sponsor resigned too as I said, and they simply re-assigned me to her sponsor. That is just how it works. I’ve had several people expressing dismay with their sponsors lately…I wish it were just so simple to say “move over to mine”!

Sadly it’s not.

The thing is folks, you don’t really know how your sponsor will be until you sign up with them.

To be honest, I am pretty sure I too would not have “100% approval rating”!

Not everyone will love my ways, and so they go looking for other Youniques to show them the way.

That’s the good thing about Younique – if you have a sponsor you’re not totally enamoured with you, then there are other people out there to lean on for support or learn from.

Bottom line? Your success is not down to the sponsor you choose so don’t over think it.

Yes they can be helpful and supportive, true, but if they are not, it’s your job to find your support elsewhere.

As I have said, there are masses of groups on FB, webinars and tutorials, articles, blogs and so forth.

Your sponsor really won’t be in charge of your success (or failure).

What you really ought to hope for in a sponsor is someone to lean on when you need some help, advice, or who will prop you up when you feel like giving up (and honestly there are days when all of us feel like giving up…and some actually do!)

You need to persevere in this business – it’s not an easy one. You may want to check out My Year in Younique – for more info on my personal journey.

 Do You Need a Younique Sponsor?

If you need a Younique sponsor and feel like I might be it, then go ahead and jointheateam now! You don’t have to clear it with you. If you feel led to join my team then I am super happy to have you!

If you want to ask more questions about Younique, then please feel free to get in touch here on the blog, via email 3dlashes (at) youniquebythea.com or ring me on my US (408 353 0434) or UK  (0141 416 1492) numbers – if you’re more of a phone person. Old school! You can reach out seven days. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

If you have a sponsor already and have questions please try them first! That’s what they’re there for!

A Relaxed but Supportive Younique Sponsor

As a Younique sponsor, please know that I don’t push or prod my team at all. Well, unless they tell me they want me to. 🙂

At the end of the day, when you sign up with Younique, it’s your business to work or not work. I’m not your boss. It’s not my job to make anyone work, or sell or recruit. That’s down to the individual. You do what works for you!

I do let my team know that I am here for them any time, and I can do video coaching any time eg via Google Hangouts.

If you decide you’d rather go for a black status presenter or someone more local to you – then that’s fine too!

Please just find someone who’s working their business, who you feel sells well online (in a non-spammy way!) and be prepared to do your own thing if they turn out to be disappointing in anyway!

That even holds true if you join my team too! 😉

Thanks for reading!

(More) Younique FAQs – Part 2

A long time ago (well time is relative, I suppose) I wrote a blog 5 FAQs About Joining Younique Part 1 and have been meaning to write “Part 2” ever since…So when I woke up to questions from my newest, lovely recruit in Canada, Sarah, I thought it’s a perfect chance to turn her potential recruit’s questions into another blog post of Younique FAQs to help. Here we go!

Click to #JointheAteam - Become a Younique Presenter/Sponsor

1) “Is there a membership fee?”

No, there are no membership fees for joining Younique. You do have to buy the startup Presenter Kit kit first though. (This costs: UK £69 | US $99 | CAD $119 | AUD $129 | NZD $139 | GER €107 | MXN $172  + SHIPPING)

At the moment it’s “Free shipping” but that won’t be for much longer! Once we sell one million lashes we’ll go back to having to pay for shipping, and your kit will only have one set of the 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara in it (not two).

So #jointheAteam soon 🙂

2) “Do I personally need to buy the products in order to get started?”

Make your own Younique images - Shop Younique By Thea
Buy Younique Makeup direct in UK today – from Younique by Thea

This is totally up to you! Younique is flexible on how you choose to run your business.

If you want just share links (via email or on social) and have people shop through your site (hopefully) then that’s what to do.

If you want to have products to show people locally then you’ll probably want to have some on hand.

We all do it different.

I personally set out to have every product (but not every colour) so I shopped strategically if you will (buying collections, using my credit, etc)

Also when I was first researching Younique, I was told by a Californian presenter to “always have some lashes in stock”. She actually said to have “10 sets” – which was too many for me when just starting out, so I bought five the same week I joined. Since then I’ve always tried to have the lashes in stock, as they always sell well for me! I’ve recommended my team do the same…

But no you do not “need to buy” anything after your starter kit. It’s your business to run how you want!

3) “Do I need to personally collect the money for the items?”

Further on to number two, this is down to how you choose to run your business. Some people do get the catalogs, host in-home parties, or bring them into their work (or anywhere), and then take orders/collect money that way. Kind of “Old School” like how my mother did Avon in the 70s, but Younique is generally done through digital channels, so the main theory is you share the links people shop through your links, and the order goes straight to them! Thus you never need to collect the money or distribute the makeup.

I personally do both.

Because I am in the UK (most of the year) I tend to collect orders and put them through as a bulk order to get the FREE Shipping, and then I will hand deliver or post them out throughout the UK at about 1/2 the shipping rate they’d have to pay if they ordered through my Younique website.

4) “How long before I make my first cheque?”

Thea Newcomb | Yellow Younique Presenter in the 1st month.We don’t do any checks/cheques at all. We have something that’s even better! We do instant royalties – so that means you’re paid approximately THREE hours after every sale through your website (including ones you put through yourself).

So after any order that is placed through your website, you are (almost) immediately paid 20% commission when starting out.

Once you promote up to Yellow status, you’ll get 25%, and as you promote within the company further up the ladder, you can eventually get to the top level, commissions wise which is 30%.

We will never earn more than 30%. I always urge my girls – even if they’re not working the business as a business – to shot for Yellow status so they can get their 25% commissions rate. Forever.

Get paid quicker with Younique mastercard

Once we sell $50.00 in commissions, our Younique debit card is automatically issued to us and we can then access our funds. We can choose to spend by using our debit cards, or we can download the funds straight into our bank accounts. I use that latter option more than my actual card but nice to have the card there if I need food or gas!

5) “If I don’t sell for a month, for whatever reason, does the account become inactive?”

Life does get in the way sometimes, for all of us, and that’s OK. You can have no sales for nearly three months and still remain active.

To remain an active Younique presenter, all you have to do is sell 125 PRS in a 90-day period. (That is $125 USD – so depending on exchange rates at any given time, that’s approximately £82 or $167 CAD €113 etc).

If you can, aim to sell 4-5 mascaras in 90-day period you’ll remain active. (I sell that in a month, fairly easily every month, but not everyone does). So I aim to qualify every month – no matter what and I have since starting almost one year ago. Aim high!

If you do not sell that 125 PRS amount, then you will go inactive for a further 90 days. In other words, even if you do fall inactive, you still can reactivate your account any time in the 90 days that follow, and put through a qualifying order to become active again.

In the past, I have had recruits fall in active one month and reactivate a month or even two later when they had more time to focus on their business.

It’s a Fabuluash Time to Join Younique

It's a Fabuluash Time to Join Younique

It’s a Fabuluash Time to Join Younique

IJoin Younique + Plus Youf you were to say to me a year ago I’d be running my own makeup business, I may have (rudely) laughed in your face. I’m not, as my family and friends will attest, a girlie girl or glamour puss. In fact, I am a bit of a plain Jane. I didn’t like the idea of direct sales, or know much about makeup, but man was joining Younique one of the best decisions I’ve made…

Coming into my ninth month as a Younique presenter and sponsor, I still love it as much as I did the day I joined. Maybe even more.

Why is it such a FAB time to Join Younique?

Sure, any time is the right time to join Younique, but right now the timing is positively exceptional…You may be asking “why now?”

First of all, they’re offering some nice incentives…If you join right now you’re going to receive:

  • an extra set of 3D lashes – our new 3D Fiber Lashes+ (out July 15 to the public)
  • a limited edition charm (which I totally want to add to my collection**!)
  • FREE shipping too!
  • Now you can get £202 worth of makeup for £69! For US peeps $256 for just $99.

How fantastic is that??

#JointheAteam - Younique By Thea

We Launch in Germany in Less than a Month!

Another reason it may be time to join Younique is that we’re launching in more new markets – first is Germany.

The German market is going to be an excellent one I think. I’ve already had enquiries from women in Germany hoping to #jointheAteam so hopefully that will happen on Aug 1 – or soon after.

We also can’t forget that Mexico is currently slated for October too. So by the end of 2015 that will be us in seven countries! Brilliant!

10 Reasons to Join Younique

Is it Time to Join Younique?

If you’re here it’s likely because you’ve been searching for information about joining Younique. Maybe you’re looking to find a sponsor, to work out if “Younique is a scam” or “a horrible pyramid scheme” or too good to be true? Or perhaps you stumbled across this when looking for how to get your hand on some 3D Fiber Lashes?

Well I have lots serious articles about what it’s like to be a Younique presenter, answering lots of questions in my Younique FAQs – but today I simply thought I’d share with you my 10 reasons why you should join Younique or at least to consider joining…

1) FUN

Younique is FUN
Let’s face it, of all the things you can be doing, or selling in this world, makeup is a totally FUN offering! So if you like makeup, and are looking for a sociable business that is FUN, then this is the one. You get to try, buy, and apply makeup to your heart’s content. You can party online or off. It’s totally up to you! The most important thing is to have FUN with it! I do…

 2) FAB

Younique is FAB

Younique sells fabulous, naturally-based makeup and skincare products. If you are all about your natural, mineral-based, paraben-free, makeup that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and is hypo-allergenic, then you’ll feel great selling these products every day. Many of the products are even 100% natural, some are even vegan, and all of which are cruelty-free.

If you care what you wear, then wear this!

3) FLEXIBLE

Younique is Flexi
Want a Flexi-time business? Work as little or as much as you want and wherever you want. If you want to run it full time, you can, or if you just want to give it an hour or two of week, that’s ok too. Work at home, in an office, a coffee shop or when waiting to pick up your kids at school. Work on a computer, a tablet or your smart phone. Work at the beach or by the pool if you want (I’ve done it, and I love that!) Younique is a totally flexible business. Do your thing – your way, it’s all ok!

4) FAST

Younique is FAST
Are you ready to go? When you are ready to join Younique, it takes just minutes to sign up. As a Younique presenter, you can start selling within minutes. You, your family, your friends, associates, even strangers, can start shopping immediately through your own Younique web site.

Perhaps even more excitingly, you get paid your commissions (20-30%) just three hours after every sale! Now that is FAST!

5) FREE

Free goodies with Younique

With Younique, you get your own FREE website that has no annual fees. It’s also the place you sell immediately, but also you can earn FREE makeup for yourself through your own party links! How cool is that?

Other ways to get FREE goodies? You can earn a lot of it by hitting “Fast Start”. If that weren’t enough, you’ll also earn FREE Y-cash on you Birthday each year too ($25.00 USD | $30.00 CAD | $33.00 AUD | $35.00 NZD | £20.00 GPB).

So that’s cause of celebration alright! Who doesn’t love FREE stuff?

6) FREEDOM

Freedom to run a Younique Biz your way
Like I said in number 3, in your Younique business, you have the freedom to run it how and where you want.

You have freedom to choose what works best for you to be your most authentic self. If you want to host in home parties, you can. If you want to do it “old-school catalog” way, you can do it that way too. If you want to become a Youtube vlogger or normal blogger, then go for it. If you want to attend events, you can. If Instagram is your channel of choice, you can choose to only market there. Or perhaps you’re a queen pinner then take your business and pin-it to Pinterest. You may be a party girl and host tea parties or lashes and lattes lunch breaks. Younique offers you much freedom to run things your way, each day!

PS: You do not have to have a Facebook business page or host parties on FB, I’ve never done either and I do pretty good with Younique. Do what suits YOU…not your upline.

7) FASHION

Younique is in Fashion
From the latest trends like 3D Fiber Lashes, or mineral pigment powders and creamy eye shadows to luxurious lip stains – you’ll always be on trend and in fashion with Younique makeup. They’re constantly adding new products to our lines. See how your Younique sisters are shining their Younique light with various looks created by presenters. Yep, this is most-definitely not your grandma’s makeup company!

8) FACEBOOK

Younique FacebookTo be honest, I’m not sure whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing, but you need to have a Facebook account to be a Younique presenter. For many of you who are already posting on Facebook, this is great news!!

You can actually use it to promote your business and make yourself some money while “playing” on there all day anyway. Get paid to play as they say! Promote items via your Facebook business page, or through an event. Or share your Younique life through your profile (Note: FB does have Ts&Cs to prevent you using your profile as a business though – so be careful, be creative!)

For those of you who may not like FB, you don’t actually have to use it for marketing. You can simply use it to log into your account and do your promoting how, when and where you like (I refer you to numbers 3 and 6 above!)

9) FAMILY

Younique Family
If you have a family yourself, then this business will afford you the ability to spend more time with them. You can help support them by earning extra money each month.

For those of us who don’t have a family (well mine is thousands of miles away), you can become a part of a Younique Family. Your team will become a sort of “family” to you, should you wish to connect to your Y-sisters. I have found it to be a supportive sisterhood and hopefully you will too!

10) FRIENDS

Younique Friends
Similarly to number 9, my tenth reason to join Younique is all about friends. If you have lots already, you can spend more time having fun with them. You can get together with them and have play with your presenters kit filled with products.

Some of them will love it and join your team (my first half-dozen recruits were my friends and my best seller has been a long-time friend). Some friends will be your most supportive customers. Theses are good friends.

You also will likely find you make new friends. I am making friends with many of my upline and downlines alike. Young and old alike – we friends are celebrating a similar mission as business owners, and are encouraging each other along our journeys. Also we help each other on days when we feel like chucking it in, and I’ll be honest with you, those days do happen. They don’t happen for me but when they do it’s good to have a supportive network to see you through!

My Week in Younique – It’s all New!

My Week in Younique - It's all New!My Week in Younique – It’s all New!

Another exciting week (and month) has come to an end with Younique. My week in Younique has been a case of new team mates, new products, new catalogs, new collections (new bag!), new kudos, new territories, and, quite simply, some new adventures too!

Let’s start with the adventure first – or maybe that should be lack thereof.

3D Lashes for Brides?

Younique By Thea Pink HatYesterday was my first Wedding Show in Glasgow. I will admit to you I had actually thought it was happening next weekend, so I will admit to have been ill-prepared. I have finally managed to order 2 baseball hats (my trademark) and a very bright pink Younique t-shirt. They’re due mid-week. Whoops. This is not the color of the hat, I am assured it’s just a screen shot sort of thing – not unlike the Dress that did the rounds this week! (Which, by the way, I saw as white and gold)

Anyway, back to the event, I did have some make-shift business cards, a price list, a “help wanted” sign, and all our fabulous makeup with me which would have been fine except….

It seems there was some sort of mix-up, or over-sight, or whatever, and someone else showed up who was also a a Younique presenter. In spite of the fact that I was the first in the room to arrive, and I’d unpacked all my stuff already, I was banished to Siberia – or at least the top of the building! What this meant, was that by the time the would-be-brides and their family/friends made it up to me, they’d already seen Younique downstairs. In some cases they even purchased the 3D Lashes down there! Hey-ho-thems-the-breaks-sometimes…Lesson learned.

New Recruits

It’s a case of new products (more on that in a minute), new catalogs, new kudos and I am pleased to report new team mates. My newest recruit joins me from way down there in England. Ha! She’s called Kelly and is someone who’s read this very blog and decided to join Younique.

She’s my first English person and the first recruit I don’t know to #jointheAteam. Well Sammie, also a new recruit, is not someone I’ve met either,  but is the sister of a friend, so it felt like I knew her! 🙂 Anyway super jazzed to have Kelly join the team this week, and it’s nice to see someone who seems keen to create a business and foster team, like me. The more of those the merrier!

6 New Younique Products – Out Now!

6 new Younique Products - Younique By TheaLast month I blogged about the six new products that were about to be launched, and guess what, today they were! I am honestly so excited about some of them too – namely the Lip Stains (there’s a set of 3 and a set of 7!!), the Splurge Cream Eye Shadow and the Beachfront Bronzers.

Lucky for me there’s a collection that features all of the six new products called Kid in a Candy Store – and I just happen to have some Y-cash going spare.

The danger with being a Younique presenter is that you run this risk of being your own best customer! I think I fall into that category. Oh well at least I can buy makeup and it’s a legitimate tax write off! So that’s the upside right?

I am sorely tempted by the set of 7 Stiff Upper Lip Stains but that does seem a bit excessive. What do you think?

I’ve been having a good peruse of our new catalog – getting it loaded onto my ipad so it’s always at-the-ready

If you are considering some new makeup – the Younique collections really are a smart way to go!

New Territories – Race to Start

latina400We’re now taking pre-registration for Latina presenters – how exciting is that? I am hoping to recruit some lovely bi-lingual latinas who will come and #jointheAteam over the coming months. We will be able to start selling products into Mexico from May 5, 2015.

Here is a Younique FAQ compiled regarding the race to start recruitment of Latinas and selling into Mexico!

If you’re looking for a Younique sponsor, then look no further! Wherever in the world, I’d be delighted to welcome you to my Younique team – #jointheAteam here.

Get Real 3D Fiber Lashes From Me Now!

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras - in Glasgow - Younique by TheaIt still burns me people selling Younique 3D Fiber Lash mascara on the likes of Amazon, Ebay, Craiglist or wherever.

I suspect in many of the cases they’re fake 3D mascaras as well.

There are two blogs I’ve written on this very subject – one is about the Real Vs Fake 3D lashes, and another one about transplanting gels that smell.

If you’re in the UK, and need a set of lashes fast, get in touch. I have some to hand (ones left over from yesterday’s non-event!) and will happily sell you the real 3Ds with a reduced shipping rate, and you’ll receive them in about 2 days.

Having bought a few of our collections, I also have a variety of our other products that I can sell you direct – saving you the wait and the international shipping fees! This is a limited time offer! So comment below, tweet me, call me or email me for more info!
