It has been a busy few weeks for myself and some of my team mates, in the run up to launching products in Germany, SIX brand new Younique products, and new catalogs, collections/sets and kudos too! Phew. Where to start…?
6 New Younique Products
There has been a lot of excitement that has been building in the run-up to the new products being released today. Last week, I wrote a blog about the six, new Younique products launching today. You can see that I was pretty excited about a few of them – in particular the lip sticks, liquid foundation and the new palette of eye shadows (3 options). If you check out the post you can see videos about all six Younique products.
New Younique Collections & Sets
Also very exciting Younique wise, is that with every new product launch there are new collections to be had. Yippeee!
Younique Collections are a great value and way to save some real money. I, personally, get very excited when collections get released and I always buy at least one!
This time there is one called Cloud Nine Collection (pictured) – which features all six new products. So that will be my firs investment I suspect 🙂

More Team Challenges – This is SERIOUS
Here’s where I get down to the nitty gritty and tell you some cold, hard truths, from my own perspective…and I say this practically every My Week in Younique update, but in case you’re new to my blog, let me just reiterate this business is not for everyone.
Each month new people #jointheAteam – while others drop out of my company. It can feel like a case of one step forward and three steps back, but I forge ahead.
I love this business and the products, so I am grateful to now have a handful of people who seem to love it as well. I guess the real challenge is getting everybody having an awesome month at the same time.
My August was pretty darn awesome (thanks mostly to strangers who stumble upon this blog! MWAH!), and my friend Fiona in Australia (she my first order to Oz – friend or otherwise! Exciting!)
Also my newest company rock star, Lucy W in England, also had a stellar month. She did amazingly-well. Like her upline, Kelly, She’s taken to Younique like a duck to water.
Whereas others before her have seemed to struggle with it. They struggle with getting sales, or maybe to find the time to actually “work the business” or whatever. So again this business is not for everyone.
For me to promote up the ladder with Younique – I need to have me, and all of my rock stars, to be doing very well in the same month, and that simply hasn’t happened. I have a good month – the team doesn’t. Or they do and I don’t. We just need to get in sync and we’d be laughing up the ladder!
While I do feel like I have a handful of women that love the business, (some of them even as much as I do), you need 10 or 20 women who are working the business seriously, in order to really promote anywhere with Younique. I promoted to Pink – only once and it’s been a challenge to even reach that ever since! S
There is no I in Team
Younique’s all about the team. Without it, you’re practically nothing! (NOTE: I mean if you’re hoping to do it as a proper business. You don’t need a team to recruit or sell – if you just want to be a hobbyist.)
Though I have recruited nearly a couple of dozen or so people this year, (since joining last October), about half of them have dropped off, or who do just enough to keep active status (approximately selling FOUR mascaras in 90 days).
This is why it is a challenging business and not for the weak, fainthearted or easily distracted or discouraged. In fact, from my perspective, Younique, is almost a textbook definition of a discouraging challenge. By that I mean this business will test you in so many ways – with your own commitment, your friends (lack of support or even criticising or avoiding you), customers (unhappy, not paying, being fickle), team mates, other presenters online habits, postal issues – etc. It can feel like it’s full time work for a part time wage sometimes.
If it’s not one thing, it’s another. So you have to have an inner strength and inner belief – particularly on those days when self-doubt is plaguing your brain and you feel like packing-it-in. And believe me we all have moments of self-doubt in this business. It’s par for the course. The trick is to persevere and carry on regardless.
I am and I am glad I am because it’s building slow and steady. There are some Younique presenters who are the hare whereas I am the tortoise. In it for the long haul, building slowly slowly. Slow and steady wins the race! There is little that beats the excitement of either sleeping or being out somewhere and seeing an order has come in, and three hours later being paid. That, rocks!
