My Week in Younique – Update #1

Good morning and so a new month begins! Have just finished month one, and am here to report the journey, so far, as honest as possible (while not breaching any terms of my contract!) 🙂

Younique Yellow Status

Thea Newcomb | Yellow Younique Presenter in the 1st month.The first milestone was achieving White level status. It’s pretty easy to do as it’s only selling about five of the 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras in a month. “Check!”

Towards the end of the month, I reached Yellow Level Status which, in order to do so, is a solo effort of selling 2000 points (which is effectively 2000 dollars).

I nearly hit the third level Pink – which is a team effort – but fell short a few hundred.

I will admit that it was tempting to whip out the credit card and do a round of Christmas shopping in one-fell-swoop just to reach Pink – but in the end, I resisted. 😉

It sort of defeats the purpose of running your own business when you’re the top customer – don’tchathink?

Younique December Goals

Well, I am happy I hit Yellow, but disappointed to have missed Pink, so I am evaluating the goals for the coming month. That’s gotta be Pink, maybe even Blue and to achieve “Fast Start” ASAP. I think I can do that last one in a week or so!

Incidentally ‘Fast Start’ qualifications are based off of the following two requirements that you need to meet within 90 days after signing up:

1. $2000 in Personal Retail Sales — nearly there!!
2. Sponsor at least 3 new Presenters — done!

Once this is achieved, I will receive a “Fast Start” charm to go with my White and Yellow charms, and I’ll get some free makeup too! “Merry Christmas” to me! So those are my December Goals.

#theAteam Expands

Welcome to theAteam - so far!#TheAteam (aka Team Thea!) has grown beyond just me. It took 18 days to get my first team mate (was a lonely three weeks there), but now I am pleased to report that there are now six in my team.

Five women one, straight man. Said man has recruited someone already as well – so that’s 8 people in my wee company in one month!

We’re all just learning and trying different things to see what works. What works for me may not work for each of my team.

The beauty of Younique is that it’s flexible for people to do as little or as much as they want. In addition to the above goals, my aim this month will be to recruit and develop my lovely team so they can make the most of their Younique opportunity!

So far my team is consisted of people I know (some really well) – which is awesome. Eventually though it will be filled with people who don’t know me yet…

Let’s Talk Younique Money

Ok so you may be curious about the money. How have I done? I don’t believe I am allowed to give actual figures (will need to check with compliance) – but let’s just say I’ve doubled my initial investment. Not quite enough to pay my mortgage – I don’t think – but it’s close!

Plus, again, that was without a team for 18 days. Just little ole me. So yes, lovely people, you can make money at this if you really want to. I am committed to doing so.

Get paid quicker with Younique mastercardI have had some challenges getting paid via PayQuicker, but this was more to my being an American in Britain – and not having the right “Government Issued” IDs to hand…

DVLA is sending my updated licence – so that, along with my National Insurance card, should have me sorted this week. Yippee!

Then the money will get either transferred to my bank account or it will just go onto my Younique debit card, and I’ll start spending that way. That’s going to be a fun day! Just in time for Christmas 🙂

Real Vs Fake 3D Mascara Saga Continues

So I just had a call from some woman – didn’t quite catch her name as it came through on my iPad and was muffled. Plus I was half asleep after working until 1am!

Anyway I believe she said she was from some company that was Digi Sell or DigiSale (I am not quite sure) who is trying to source the Real Vs Fake 3D Mascara claims from my last post.

Listen lovely people, I am not the one who has asserted the claims, only relaying what the Younique community has been reporting in various places on the Tinterweb.

Basically buyer beware…I have not personally seen these possible fake 3D Fiber Lash Mascaras – merely the real ones.

Unless I misunderstood, her due to the faulty connection and half-asleepedness, she points to a certain “hysteria” that has been caused to me – from my last blog. Well this so-called frenzy was going on for weeks before I decided to blog about it, Shop Younique by Theaand simply warn that there may be fakes. Scratch that, there ARE fakes all over the web – which is why I say always buy direct from a Younique presenter. If not me, then one of my “Y-sisters”

Maybe the woman in question is selling them? I am not sure. In any event, no hysteria’s been caused by me, as judging from my analytics, only about 20 people read the actual blog post in question. Hardly hysteria-inducing…

In any event, I am not saying that ALL mascaras on Ebay and Amazon are fakes – or fringing trademark or copyright – I am only saying that if they are for sale outside of youniqueproducts.com – they won’t be officially sanctioned from Younique – or sold by a legitimate presenter – as it breaks our Terms and Conditions to sell anywhere like that!!

We have a busy compliance division who are addressing such claims – so please lady, whoever you are, if you’re reading this – ASK THEM not me.

Try emailing Younique Compliance them here! And, as for the details you couldn’t seem to find for Younique, here they are right from the main website:
