Cards, Cosmetics, Etc – Update

Cards, Cosmetics, Etc – Update

Cards, Cosmetics, and…

UPDATE SUMMER 2017 – the first part of this post about the coffee – is no longer happening. Also the greeting cards has some major news too which you can read here…So feel free to skip on down to the Younique news, why don’t you?

We’re getting close lovelies…Cards, Cosmetics, Coffee are all coming together soon.

Over the last few years I’ve launched small businesses. First it was a direct sales business – Younique.

A year later I added another MLM to my bow, Phoenix Trading greeting cards.

Then a year later it was, coffee but this time my own brand of coffee – Neart.

Neart is the first ever Scottish Coffee aimed at mindfulness.

Slowly, over the past six or eight months, I’ve been putting together a sort of idea for a hamper with Cards, Cosmetics, Coffee and maybe chocolate in it too. Maybe candles?¬†Caramel? Some people have even suggested Champaign. ūüôā

Anything starting with a letter C it would seem…

Seriously though, I’ve not had as much time to focus on the makeup or greeting cards but will continue to work those two businesses as and when I can. For now it’s about getting a coffee off the ground. See what I did there? Coffee. Ground. Ha!

The 4 Coffees Are:
4 Neart Coffees

Neart Power – twice the caffeine for times when you need that boost!

Neart Energy – a medium blend from the Americas

Neart Force – a Blue Mountain, Kenya, single origin coffee

Neart Flow – a Swiss Water Decaf

There is one size, 250g bags, and four options: Whole Bean, Filter, Cafetière and Espresso grind too. Once we get up and running there will be lovely small gift sampler versions of all of four coffees in one type.

New Younique Products & Team Talk

Younique Touch Powder Foundation

I’ll be honest, Younique has been quiet the past few months for myself and my team. March broke all kinds of company records, but since then, it’s been crickets for the A-team.

I still love being a Younique Presenter and Sponsor, but life does seem to be getting in the way. My focus is drawn toward the new coffee project Neart Coffee so that has left little time to market any new makeup and skin care products from Younique. Quite excited to check out some of the new products – such as the Touch Loose Powder Foundation. If there is one thing Younique is awesome at, in my humble opinion it’s clearly Foundation.

NEW Phoenix CardsPick up some Phoenix Trading Cards - Summer 2017 - New cards

 

Slowly I’ve started to sell some more cards for 2017. Valentine’s, birthday and general cards are going at last. There is a lot of stock here at the homestead, but where it really needs to be is out and about. So I’ve taken it into the office and it’s the “Honour System” whereby if anyone needs a card, they can grab one and just put the money in the envelope or PayPal Me their card money.

Phoenix has also just released a bunch of new and exclusive products worth checking out if you’re so inclined.

UPATE AUG 2017 – Phoenix Trading is no more… ūüôĀ

So that about wraps up this latest Cards, Cosmetics, Coffee post.

It’s been a long time in the making, but sometimes life is simply like that. As ever do feel free to reach out with any questions you have about any of my three businesses.

Cards, Cosmetics and Coffee

Thea's new coffee is launching soon - Cards, Cosmetics and Coffee

UPDATE 2018: Am no longer doing Cards or Coffee but am doing Tshirts and Cosmetic still.

As if there were¬†not enough on my plate, I’m now adding yet another “C” into the repertoire with coffee. Now I’m officially a purveyor of Cards, Cosmetics and¬†Coffee. While the first two are direct sales companies I run as little sidelines – the real focus going forward for the foreseeable future will be the coffee…So how do all of my businesses tie in with each other? Is there a method to my madness? I believe there is, read on and I will explain.

Why Coffee?

That’s a good question. It’s understandable to ask why I’d launch my own brand of coffee when I really don’t know that much about it. One reason is that Coffee is the the number one most consumed drink globally. It has proven to be a mood lifter and people who drink it are often very passionate about it. When launching a business, they tend to say that you should be passionate about your product or service, and even though I don’t drink coffee, I am.

Truth be known, it’s not really about the coffee for me. Coffee¬†is simply the vehicle with which to channel my mission or message through.

It has actually occurred to me that my interest may be due to the fact that for my entire life, my dad has drank coffee as if it were his lifeblood. He is heavily involved in helping me for this company and at the time of typing these words is the only person, apart from my logo designer, who even knows the name of the company. But I digress.

Back to being on a mission…

What is My Purpose?

I believe my role in life is to change the way people think. No more so than on soyouvebeendumped.com where around 50,000 lovelorn men and women would visit from all four corners of the world every single month.

In addition to simply giving people a space to read and share stories, it’s also my intention to show these people that an ending is just the beginning.

These heartbroken people often need to be reminded that they are enough, regardless of how it may feel at the time. Someone may have chosen to walk away or they’re facing some emotional challenges but there will be a way to turn pain into gain. (Check out the video below).

For positive healing, one must make it their mission to find their gift in their challenging situation Рno matter how bad or dark it may seem at the time.

Younique’s Mission

Strangely, or not as the case may be, Younique’s mission is to Uplift, Empower & Validate. That is one of the reasons that I actually joined Younique¬†in 2014.

Their mission aligned with my own personal ethos, as well as that of So You’ve Been Dumped.

It all ties into this concept of making people feel better about themselves, because, in my experience, we all have some sort of issues about ourselves.

Most of us can feel not pretty enough, smart enough, successful enough, or what have you. This goes for men and women alike. Many of these limiting beliefs will be operating on a deep subconscious level and need to be reprogrammed. Here is where the coffee comes in.

My Coffee Mission

My new brand of¬†coffee will follow similar principles to SYBD…it’s designed specifically to empower its drinkers.

So instead of taking a time out, they will be encouraged to take a time in. What do I mean by that? They’ll be urged¬†to make their coffee, pause while they drink it, in order to check in to see how they’re feeling, note their thoughts, their energy, and take steps to shift it accordingly.

It’s an exciting concept. I can’t say too much this week, but maybe next week. I may even do my first Facebook Live. We’ll see.

Christmas is Coming
