My Week in Younique – I Sold _____ of Makeup

Welcome back to ‘My Week in Younique’ where there is much to update you on. March has truly kicked off with a bang! It’s been a time of personal achievements, new products, deliveries, team mates, record breaks and territory too.

$XX,XOX PRS – YES!

I sold 10,000 PRS of Younique Makeup - Hooray!This weekend, I managed to earn a very special PRS charm – EDITED: I am not allowed to say how much I sold.

It took me over one year and four months (and ten days, but who’s counting?) Sure there will be many who do that monthly, or who did it much faster, but there are also a lot who haven’t yet and even some who will never achieve it at all.

So this month, somewhat unusually, sales came from people I know. Often they come from strangers. This month the two big spenders who helped me reach my target were actually my big sister Wendy, and best bud Brian. Some of our products are suitable for men too.

I just want to say a heart felt “thank you” to all of you who purchased anything from me.

TWO NEW TEAMIES

Welcome #theAteamThis week I welcomed two new lovelies to my team. One from the isle of Islay and the other is from England. I often get asked for tips for recruiting but I honestly I can’t say I have ever really tried.

With Younique, as with most Direct Sales companies, there is this whole “Make a list of X amount of people you know…” To “share the opportunity” with…and I have no doubt that will work for some people. But honestly? It makes my skin crawl. It’s just now how I am wired.

Will blog more about that later, but my personal tips for getting recruits would simply be – be positive, consistent and share the love of the business, the products and the benefits. And not is some scripted sort of way. (Scripts also make my skin crawl). But that’s just my opinion. You can recruit whatever way you want. I prefer strangers coming to me rather than sharing the opportunity with anyone.

NEW PRODUCTS

Friday I am pleased to say my new Younique collection – Trendsetter arrived. Like 80,00 other people in the first two days of March, I rather excitedly shopped for our new products that were launched. It was a hassle because the site was chewing up so much bandwidth with all of us clamouring to get our makeup, it kept falling over. Well eventually the order went in and just over a week later, my new products arrived.

 Here’s an unboxing video I made, using my phone, in the middle of a networking event. It’s only 90 seconds and will show some of the new products (but I did miss out the new liquid eye liner I got, oops!)…Are you a Trendsetter?

 

We have a handful of products that immediately sold out (again). Yes, I know it’s frustrating that so many of our top product’s are not in stock. We are in fact victims of our own success. The foundation the puffer brush, the new body bronzer, the kudos and collection bag all out right now.If you are really desperate can actually order the Younique Liquid Foundation if you buy this Stroke of Beauty collection

My Race to Green

So as you can probably tell, it’s been a great and exciting week…I’ve been keeping track of my “race to green” here on my blog, and I gotta be honest with you, it’s not looking hugely promising for this month.

Well, unless all of my team mates start to really kick some ass…(Some already are, thankfully). We’ll see.

I’ll keep trying until I reach Green status. I had felt like it would be this month – primarily as I’ve gotten quite a few recruits lately, and we were launching all these new products (which I assumed everyone would be buying like I did). Well, not so much…Oh well, I’ll keep praying for a miracle. I do love a good challenge anyway! See you next time lovely! x

If you love make up, do you fancy joining the Ateam? I’d love to have you!

My Week in Younique – Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies. Well, by the time you read this it may have come and gone for another year, as a guess, but wanted to say it just the same. For this My Week in Younique update, we’ll talk a bit about what’s been happening since the last update – like the new team mate Tabitha, how my new “Welcome Back Kit” arrived (and so I did a video for its unboxing), the February kudos and info on the next Younique incentive trip and a few links to blog posts about joining younique, sponsors, and frequently asked questions that you may not have seen this past week or so, too!

My Welcome Back Kit

Last month, Younique offered a sweet little incentive to welcome back lapsed presenters and they called it the Welcome Back Kit. I must admit I was a bit envious when I saw it – mostly for the bag but a few other things in it too…So imagine my joy when I learned that we were going to be able to buy it ourselves from February 1. Buy, I did. I couldn’t resist, and I even made a little video unboxing it, or rather just after I unboxed it.

Speaking of Welcomes…

Welcome to Tabitha – she is the newest recruit – and she hails from Wisconsin.

Welcome to Tabitha - the latest to #jointheAteam

February Kudos

To be honest with you I’d have hoped for something a bit more, ahem, romantic for February Kudos (last year was great) but this year it’s merely “Free shipping” over a certain amount. Basically if you buy some lashes and just about anything else you get Free shipping so from that standpoint it’s pretty decent…but like I say I’d have hoped they’d have thought a bit more out of the box for the Valentine Kudos…Maybe a pink lip stick or stain with a liner. Something….

Younique February 2016 Kudos - FREE SHIPPING

I think something a bit more cute and creative would have helped me reach my goal of 10,000 PRS which I am inching my way toward (and had hoped I’d reach this month). But hey ho, we got FREE SHIPPING. Better luck with March’s Kudos….or hopefully some new products.

I’ve heard there will be new Younique Products for March 2016 but have yet to see an official update on that. I await that news with baited breath. It’s always so very exciting when we launch new products, collections, kudos all at once! If it does happen in March – I will receive that new 10k charm – mark my words.

So anyway it’s a great time to join Younique. If you’re looking for a Younique sponsor then this, one of my latest posts, “How to Find a Younique Sponsor” may be helpful to you. That’s of course if you’re not interested in joining my team right now…or even if you are it’s some “food for thought”. I also just blogged another Younique FAQs post so if you have some questions before joining then why not have a look at them?

Younique’s Cruise

Younique has announced another incentive trip – this time to Mexico. I am not a huge fan of the idea of cruises to be honest with you (would rather a resort trip) but I have to say I kind of like the idea of this one so I am gonna go for it.

Follow @youniquedad on twitter | #youniquebythea

If I can earn it maybe I’ll take Younique Dad along. Don’t old folks love cruises?

That’s about all for another update of My Week in Younique. If there’s anything I can do to help you…please feel free to reach out. Details are up in the header here.

My Week in Younique – Hello February, Allo France

My Week in Younique – by Thea

Here we are, it’s just two minutes until February now, and so time to share another My Week in Younique! As we leave January behind (praise Buddha), we kick off another month and launch in another country – France! This post sees three lovely additions to my team. Let’s wrap Jan before we talk about Feb!

Younique January Blues

January was dismal, I’ll be honest with you. There were no sales and no recruits for me – the whole month until this weekend. At least I got a last minute mascara sale in, but that was it! Ugh!

I know I shouldn’t admit to such things but sometimes Younique is like that. Heck, sometimes life is like that. Highs and Lows. Ebb and Flow. January was just low, end of story. Not just for me but many of my team mates too. Few of us did anything this month. Newcomer Annabelle rocked it right out of the ballpark. You should totally check out Annabelle’s videos on her FB group as she’s fantastic!

Yesterday, Saturday, I a lovely person called Sharon joined the team. I’d had several equiries this week about joining younique so it was great one finally did. Then later in the afternoon another joined – Jay in the USA. Later that night while I was out at the movies a third person joined the team – Gillian just outside Glasgow. So three is in fact a charm and my personal best for Younique recruits! I celebrated by writing a blog last night “How to Find a Younique Sponsor” which may prove helpful to some!

Welcome to #theAteam - Sharon, Jay and Gillian - Younique by Thea

Anyway so yes, January was less than stellar for myself and the Ateam…but it sure ended on a high note.

Fab February France – Bonjour

Younique France - Launch Fevrier 1, 2016So again, as I said previously, we launch in France in a matter of hours. Tout le monde semble très excité! j’espere trouver beaucoup de gens se joindre à moi – avec Younique.

Well OK, so my French is a tad rusty. I’ll work on that and go back to English for now.

I’m hoping to have some lovely makeup lover to #jointheAteam soon – and for an excuse to pop back over there later this year. Any excuse, right?

Younique Customer Kudos for Feb

You can tell that I am very excited about February. In the morning we will find out what this months customer kudos will be. Last year it was awesome. It had a super cute pink bag, with some 3D Fiber Lashes, a lip gloss and eye liner too – bundled.  I just pray that this year’s will be just as good if not better. Personally speaking, the January Kudos left a little to be desired. Eye Lash Curler? Cute as it may be, and good as it may work, it was a bit “Meh” – too hard to excited over. February will definitely top that one, right? Ask me in nine hours.

Oh and it’s a Leap Year, so apart from the obvious advantage or being able to propose to your guy, as it’s a bit longer there is an increased sales potential!

Nearly there - 10,000 PRS with Younique - Charm

Speaking of sales, my goal over the next month is to hit the 10,000 PRS – so I can earn another charm for my collection!

Then my next goal after that is to hit Green Status Elite – which feels a little impossible right now, to be honest, but surely it must be doable, as many before me have done it! So Green it is!

MWY Summary!

So that’s about it. My team update (welcoming three new recruits), the Younique France update (just hours away), my Younique goals at the moment,….and a brand new Fab Feb France Foundation and Fun party to kick of the month! Hope it’s a great one! I gotta get some sleep and when i wake up – it’s a new month with a new customer kudos and new territory! Brilliant!

My Week in Younique – Finally, Blue Status

Thea Newcomb is Blue Status - Younique by Thea

My Week in Younique – Finally, Blue Status

Welcome back to another instalment of My Week in Younique where this week I talk about my team’s achievements, how to get the 3D Fiber Lashes+ just in time for the holidays, the December Kudos (which is awesome by the way!) and my biggest news of all is that Black Friday made me BLUE status (Finally)!!!

Big High Five to Helen

Once again, my sole Aussie recruit, Helen, has kicked-ass. I’ve just noticed that two presenters signed up on my mother’s birthday and Helen was one. That has to be a great omen! Helen (pictured here with wee Amy) smashed sales in November, hitting Yellow status and outselling more than the next top selling presenter by more than double.

For that reason I’d really like to help her build her team up and reach the Fast Start promotion.

So for the next few inquiries I get here, I’ll have them sign up under her. They’ll still be a part of my team (entitled to any FREE Blogging or Social Media coaching) but they’ll signed up under Helen as their sponsor! Win/win as this gal’s going places!!

The trick I’m learning with Younique is to help your recruits build their teams. We are nothing without our teams. So it’s not just about having Younique recruits, it’s about formulating a team.

Personally speaking I’ve had lots of recruits in the first year, over 20, but 50% of whom haven’t done a thing…

Also worth mentioning is our next team presenter to promote up to Yellow since Helen was Louise. Well done girl!!

Also a big shout out to my fellow Cali Gals – Tina and Teri who are inching their way toward the Yellow promotion too! They may even make it this month collecting their pay-bump, up to 25%, just in time for Christmas.

More New Younique Product News: Buy the December Kudos!

So one of the most exciting things to happen this week is the announcement of the new December Kudos. Not only is it my fave product the Splurge Cream Eye Shadows but if you buy a set of three (and as luck would have it there are three new colours this month) – you get a FREE, brand new product – the Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eye Liner…How amazing is that? Of course I had to buy mine last night as I always aspire to have every Younique product in stock. (Any excuse right?)

3D Fiber Lashes+: One Set Left!

I currently am down to my last set of 3D Fiber Lashes in stock. Sold one this afternoon to a woman in Glasgow who phoned up last night needing a set for a present for her sister-in-law. We met, she paid me her £23 and received her 3D lashes and a FREE greeting card too.

Though I say I am down to my last set, there are five more sets (plus one from the Black Friday deal) that have been dispatched so do hope they arrive tomorrow or Saturday.

If you’re anywhere in the UK, for the next week, I can save you some money on shipping and you’ll receive them quicker but after next weekend I’ll be off for the holidays so act fast! To be fair if you needed some 3D lashes plus over the festive period I’m sure I’ll still sort you out. So yes, the choice is up to you whether you wish to buy direct from me (to save time and money) or order them online 24/7.

Younique Black Friday Made Me Blue

Finally, as many will know, I have been a Younique presenter since the company launched in the UK on November 1, 2014. I had not tried the products, just took a chance on the £69 kit start up cost and hoped for the best.Thea Newcomb - Officially a Blue Status Presenter with Younique

Well, as a social media trainer, Younique was a good fit for me. I already was on every channel there is (just about) and I know the basics of SEO as well.

So off I went and quickly qualified as White status, then Yellow, hit the “Fast Start” bonus and Pink…where I stalled for a year.

Younique is a fun of course, but often a very frustrating business. It’s definitely not for anyone who is just hoping to make a fast buck (or pound or euro). If I was only in it for the money I’d have quit nine months ago. It’s also not for anyone who is easily put off by other people’s negativity (family, friends, Younique haters etc). If you’re someone who isn’t of strong mind you’ll probably give up.

All Younique Levels - White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and BlackBut thankfully this week – thirteen months of tenacity paid off and I finally reached Blue Status with Younique! I’ve had a lot of people asking me what that actually means. Well for one it means I’m halfway up the Younique ladder (or so). Four more levels to go – Green, Orange, Purple and Black.

It also means I’ll make 4% on my company sales (the downline below me). Looking forward to that first Blue payment soon!

I will be honest with you – I was delighted to reach blue at 11:57pm Sunday night. It happened as I was on my weekly training call with my team – e.g. Kelly. She got to witness first hand as I almost started to cry with excitement, relief and a few other emotions. Though I have to be honest you, I’m proud of hitting Blue with its 4000 sales but right around now Green is looking impossible. Do hope it doesn’t take another thirteen months, like it did to reach blue status, to promote to the next level – GREEN!!

Only time will tell…

Don’t forget I’m now selling Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers in the UK. You buy them – and the recipient shops through me directly and I send them to the desired address! Easy peasy! Perfect for anyone who needs a last minute gift idea for the makeup lover in their life!

My Week in Younique

Welcome to another instalment of My Week in Younique where I talk about the latest news both from HQ and as per my experience as a Younique presenter and sponsor. This week we have team news and achievements, update on Kudos, and the big news Younique by Thea gift vouchers are available – just in time for the holidays! A wee bit about Black Friday too!

November Kudos is Killing It

Younique by Thea - November Kudos Eye PrimerWell the November 2015 Kudos have been so popular they’re nearly sold out. HQ wrote on our “Presenters Only” Facebook page last night to say the curtain is drawing to a close on this popular primer product for the eyes.

I managed to put through an order on Day 1 of the month so that I could make sure I got it and after selling out of all of my 3D Fiber Lashes put in a subsequent order to earn another one. Might be willing to sell or even give it away! It’s a tiny wee product to prime your eyes. I’d recommend it. As it’s been such a success it will likely be available for purchase in the near future (as a guess)?

Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers

Do you need a last minute gift? Or simply want to thank someone for something? Maybe you know someone loves makeup, but you aren’t sure what to get them? Then this is the perfect solution just for you…

Vouchers start at just £15.00 (Plus £3.30 shipping and handling). Find more over on the new Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers page. Though you can pay by Paypal just now – I’m currently looking at other potential payment providers for those who prefer not to use PayPal!

Younique Black Friday 2015

younique by thea - black fridayThe team is going fantastic this month. Many of my fabulous recruits, and their recruits, have qualified this month already – and we still have a whole week to go!

The company is slowly promoting – with one pink like me (Kelly Roach) and several fabulous Yellows too. The most recent promotion to Yellow is Helen Rahn in Australia who just promoted last week! Now we need to get her some recruits so she can reach Fast Start*.

I suspect we’ll be able to accrue some good sales on Friday when the Younique Black Friday offer gets posted on the morning (UK time).

Last year was a lovely offer, which I grabbed for myself and a few clients. Do hope that this one will be just as good.

In anticipation I’ve already scheduled a party for Black Friday! Hopefully my girls have been doing similar!

This is a real exciting time to join Younique – in the run up to the holidays!

Oh before I go – I did get an email yesterday asking if I was going to be having any “Cheeky wee Black Friday deals” and the answer is yes and no. I won’t be giving a way anything cheap but any mascara bought direct off me will receive FREE shipping – this weekend only! This offer is good Friday, Saturday and Sunday only!

Well this is just a short update before the big reveal on Friday. I’ll definitely write a blog as fast as I can about the Younique Black Friday deal. Check back then. In the mean time if you’re interested in joining Younique and have any questions please do reach out. I’d love to hear from you!

My Week in Younique – Nearly Pink (Again)

My Week in Younique - Nearly Pink AgainWelcome to another update of My Week in Younique. It’s been such a busy time that I’ve been a bit remiss with the updates since my latest posts about the one year anniversary two weeks ago (My Year in Younique & My Week in Younique – A Year Ago Today).

Trust me though, I’ve been working as hard as ever on the business and so has most of my company! So here’s a bit of the latest info on new products, new team achievements and some info about my upcoming Younique by Thea gift vouchers.

So on the first of the month I ordered a few extra sets of 3D Fiber Lashes+ to have on hand and in doing so qualified for the November Kudos of the brand new Eye Primer. It’s not a product you can currently buy but you can get it as a bonus purchase as this month’s Kudos.

Younique by Thea - November Kudos Eye Primer

It was much smaller than I’d expected but you really don’t need to use much. Two wee dots on your finger and you’re good to prime your eyes!

Younique Promotions

Super proud of my latest recruit Charlotte to qualify officially as a White Status presenter with over 200 PRS (Personal Retail Sales).

Congrats to Charlotte - She Qualified as White Tonight!

Throughout many of the My Week in Younique (and the aforementioned year update) I have said “Younique is not for everyone” so it really makes me happy when I see ladies in my company taking to it like a duck to water…Their love of Younique makes me truly happy.

Now if only all of my company members felt that way…Sadly, one of the recent recruits decided the products (and prices) were not for her, and so she has left in the first 90 days. I guess that’s made tonight’s achievement by Charlotte all the more pleasing to me! Way to go girl!

Not doing too bad myself thanks to my team and for my own efforts (my mascara purchases, a few direct 3D Fiber Lashes sales, and one stranger in Indiana buying the Cloud 9 kit) – I’m nearly qualified as Pink again myself and we’re only halfway through November.

Now if I could just reach Blue…(Speaking of which I created a “Blue party” link in case you want to spend a few pennies on makeup!)

New Splurges Arrived!!

Younique by Thea faves - Splurge Cream Eye ShadowsIf you have ever seen any of my other blog or social media posts you’ll know the lashes aren’t my favourite product but maybe the Splurge Cream Eye Shadows are. You can see they have my name written all over them!

Well, let’s see, in the past week or so I’ve received a number of new ones – Noble (H), Extravagant (E), Whimsical (A), Skeptical (!) and my replacement of my fave Elegant (Top left). That Elegant would suit any eye at all. Seriously it’s neutral and glorious (not to be confused with our Glorious Primer of course).

I highly recommend you check out Splurge Cream Eye Shadows. I’d never worn them before Younique but now I can’t live without it. (Well, of course I could live without it and all makeup, but I’d not want to!)

Younique Gift Vouchers

Younique by Thea Gift Vouchers - Coming SoonThis weekend I’ve spent a lot of time working on the new Younique gift vouchers which can be purchased in the UK for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas or any special occasion or reason someone may might want to treat someone else for. You’ll be able to pay by Paypal (have just set up a new UK business account to handle the transactions in the UK – and have a separate PayPal for all USA business), cash or BACS payments. They’ll be available in a variety of increments and if someone has a special amount they want it in they can contact me for a bespoke payment link just for them.

There will be more information added to the site, about the Younique gift vouchers, in the next few days (hopefully). Will get them posted as soon as I can. That said I am about to have my busiest two weeks of the whole year so it may not go off as planned.

That’s a wrap for another My Week in Younique. If you are interested in joining Younique but have questions please reach out to me in one of the ways listed above on this site. You may find the Younique FAQs post helpful and also the 10 Reasons to Join Younique as well.

If you’re ready to #jointheAteam then do so here!

#JoinetheAteam - Younique by Thea

My Week in Younique – A Year Ago Today…

My Year in YouniqueWelcome back to another My Week In Younique. Last week, I did a pretty massive post called My Year in Younique to mark the one year anniversary of signing up as a Younique presenter and sponsor.

Today though marks the date Younique launched in the UK. We officially began selling here on November 1, 2014.

I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and we’re now heading slowly into the holiday season. Anyway it’s time to update you on this My Week in Younique – new products, new kudos, and a wee team update too.

New Younique Product

Today we launched a new Younique product called Moodstruck Minerals Eye Primer. I didn’t know a thing about that one, so it was quite a surprise when I logged on and saw it was this month’s Kudos – free (with a somewhat large purchase).

November Kudos - Moodstruck Minerals Eye Primer

The other exciting released today was the new Splurge Cream Eye Shadow colour in Skeptical. It’s a beautiful charcoal tone. I can’t wait to buy this one I have to say. One of these days I’ll work out how to do a proper smokey eye. I keep trying with very mixed results.

Love a smoky eye? Try Splurge in Skeptical from Younique

One of my teamies decided to leave Younique this week! So I’ll be honest with you, that was a bit of a bummer. But on the same day, another lapsed presenter re-activated her account and put through an order! Welcome back Tina my fellow Californian (I find it funny that the three Californians in my company, well including me, are all 4-letter Ts. Thea. Tina. Teri. But I digress)

Also this week I welcomed my first recruit from Wales, Emma-Louise. One step forward to steps back. Direct sales, Younique or otherwise, is a numbers game. (Remember – “Younique is not for everyone!”)

My Week in Younique – Some October News

Well I am behind on the My Week in Younique updates, I know, so I thought I better write an update. Also for those who have been following along with MWY, the good news is that I’m just a few weeks away from my one-year anniversary, and I will be doing a very special blog on my Younique journey – one year in. So watch out for that. 

September Accomplishments!

What an exciting month September was! Though my own personal sales were half of what they were in August, my company’s sales were more than double – so that’s rather cool. In any event, I managed to hit pink (for only the second time in a year)!

Today, as the new months begins, we start fresh with a handful of ladies who’ve joined my company in the past week alone (three lovelies have joined me, one has joined Karen’s team, and one for Lucy too).

Lucy’s recruit, in the final minutes of September, qualified her as the first one in my company to reach Fast Start. We, #theAteam, as a group, were all so proud of Lucy for achieving her goal. She worked so hard and now gets a sweet charm and a Y-cash bonus to spend on heaps of makeup as she sees fit. I was so excited to splurge when I reached it myself in December. Not only that but Kelly now joins me as Pink. These two have been putting me to shame for the past few months so I better step up my game!

So pleased to announce that though the shipping fee of £6.95 remains active now you qualify for FREE SHIPPING by spending less on Younique products. The new rate to reach FREE shipping is now anything over £75.00. How awesome is that?

Incidentally, according to the support desk this afternoon, “Mexican shipping has also changed. $1-$2,499 MXN will cost $75 to ship Anything above that is free.”

3) Younique Shipping Time 

Some of the team members have noticed that their orders are shipping faster. I had two, 3D mascara UK orders last month which were ordered just one day apart, and there was a strange situation whereby the second order got to the UK faster than the first!

In any event, am so glad they’re getting those UK orders here faster. We eagerly await at Younique European hub to improve it even more! I ordered the Cloud 9 collection for myself on September 30th which features all six of our new Younique products – plus a 3D Fiber Lashes mascara too – so I can’t wait for that to arrive! Thanks for stopping by.

October Kudos

I’ve fallen behind in my Splurge purchases and need to get the most recent three so it’s most handy that this month it’s an opportunity to buy them on special offer in the Kudos here.

My Year in Younique

Well that’s it for another My Week in Younique update. As I said earlier, I’m working on a very transparent blog post about my year as a Younique presenter and sponsor. It’s going to be a good one (if I do say so myself).

My Week in Younique – Super September Sales

As recently predicted in my new products post, it has been a busy September already, and we’re just approaching the half-way mark. So for this ‘My Week in Younique’ update I will update you on the new products, team efforts and remind you of this month’s Kudos!

Makeup Lovers Beware!

Firstly Younique is a dangerous business if you even kind of like makeup. I am not a crazy makeup fiend, and yet most of my profits get sucked back into the business. This month though I’ve refrained from buying the new collection that contains the six new Younique products (It’s called Cloud 9). I will get it, but I’ve set myself a personal target before I’ll allow myself to get it.

New Younique Collection Cloud 9 - Sept 2015

Very excited to try the new products. I believe a few of my team members have already picked it up – which has meant a solid start for the A team! Sept. On that note…

Qualified in 2 Days!

Three of my newest company members had qualified in two days this month. It’s best month-launch so far, I think. To “qualify” a Younique presenter needs to sell 125 PRS which is approximately $125 UK/£85 UK.

Each month, I aim to sell that, but we really only need to sell that in a 90-day period. The good news for us to qualify we can spend the money on ourselves – so for instance, if I were to buy the aforementioned collection, I’d qualify for 90 days. (See If you Love Makeup, Don’t Become a Younique Presenter)! Again though I aim to sell way more than that every month.

Finding Great Staff

It has taken almost a year to attract people to this business that truly love and want to work it and learn as much as they can.

For every ten or so that I’ve recruited, about three have done anything at all with it.

That’s the most challenging aspect of the business – recruiting and having them drop off.  I say this because I don’t want people to think this is a get-rich-fast business. Some people do, for sure, but they by far the minority. Younique takes effort, time, persistence, consistency, positivity, passion and resilience. So if you do #jointheAteam or someone else’s  you’ll start to see that Younique is not for everyone. So it will be better to focus the energy on the ones who aim to rock it.

Right now I am so proud of my rockstars – Lucy, Kelly and Louise – who are all kicking my @ss in sales so far. At least through the Younique site. I’m doing very well on mascara sales – to both strangers through the site and ordering direct through me.

Wow, just as I am writing this post I sold another set of the 3D Fiber Lashes! Love it when that happens! These 3D Fiber Lashes literally sell themselves. At least for me they do! 11 months on in this business and it gets easier and easier for me but it’s been a very slow build. Some Youniques are the Hare, but I am the Tortoise.

Younique September Kissable Kudos

Just a wee reminder that this month the Kudos are Kiss-tastic. You can get three lip stains and a lip gloss in a bundle as seen in the picture. I personally love the lip stains that I have, and really want the purple one – so may just treat myself. Also in case you’re wondering, my fave Lucrative Lip Gloss is Lavish.Get Lippy with Younique by Thea - September 2015 Kudos

So that wraps up another My Week in Younique I think. I joined October 16th so we’re fast approaching my one-year anniversary of being Younique and I love it more and more as days go by. As I always say “Younique’s not for everyone” but it is for me!
