Again, please only buy from genuine Younique presenters via the youniqueproducts.com website. If you don’t buy from me, then at least buy from a real, active, younique presenter near you, ok?
If you would consider buying from me, then I’d appreciate it! Just click on the box or that link above, and it will take you straight to buy them from the official Younique website.
Where You Can Buy 3D Lashes?
Ok so where can you buy the 3D fiber lashes (country wise)? Well, we currently sell all our Younique products to Australia, New Zealand, Germany and North America (that’s the USA, Canada to the north and Mexico to the south as well!)

We also sell to the UK, where I am, primarily based (I’m from California and spend time in both countries). So if you’re in the UK, and interested in buying a set of 3D lashes (or anything!), I can save you money on shipping costs – by buying direct from me.

Of course you can buy them direct from other Younique UK presenters too, but please just please double check that you can verify they are a true Younique presenter. In fact, ask to see their Younique website before exchanging money – to ensure they’re legit.

Well it’s high time to update you on my progress in another scintillating instalment of “My Week in Younique” (LOL!)
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 productslaunching 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 🙂
Each month Younique offers new “kudos” (which are customer perks). They might be limited edition products, or special bundles, and this month it is…and this month we have a crackin’ deal…
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!

Gentle Younique Reminder:
Please always remember to buy 3D Fiber Lash Mascara from a real Younique presenter. (If not me, then someone else on the Younique Products website). I hate to see people getting caught out by buying fakes from Craigslist, eBay or Amazon…
My Week in Younique this week covers a bit about Convention. New Products. New Shipments. New top sales people too…
Well there’s always something exciting going on with Younique. This past week was Younique Convention in Chicago (which was covered in the Chicago Tribune), and though I was stateside at the time, it was for a high school reunion, so the dates were too much to work out. So I had to follow updates and announcements on “Social” – like the other non-attendees.
What was announced recently were a bunch of new products that look terribly exciting – coming in September!
I am personally very excited by the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation as I tend to really like liquid foundations. The Moodstruck Precision Brow Gel and Brow Liner is also looking pretty interesting.
The Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette looks like it has some beautiful eye shadow shades in there, and don’t get me started on the lipsticks! We have a lot to choose from!
What’s great is that when Younique tends to launch new products, it often has a collection to get them all in it – so that should be announced this week (along with other new sets too).
Speaking of new products and lipsticks – my first ever Younique lipstick just arrived. It’s the “Exclusive Opulence Lipstick in Stuck Up”. It looks a bit browner or blander than I’d normally wear – but sometimes pictures don’t tell the whole story. I actually like it on! (Always keep an open mind).
Really excited to have now received my Younique necklace (as pictured) I’d had it sent to California some months back. You could get the necklace by buying any collection. Since I only wanted the necklace, I shared the products with my friend Kim in Ohio, and kept the necklace for myself!
Just noticed today that Kelly has now taken over as top sales person on #theateam. Also rising in the ranks is newcomer Lucy. Just need three or four more of these ladies and I’d be able to promote up the ladder too!
For every Lucy or Kelly though, there are about eight to ten who either do it just for a wee bit of fun, or part time, or who drop off completely. As I say often, this doesn’t tend to be an easy business.
For some it’s harder than others. I have no trouble getting sales through my site – but it doesn’t tend to be enough to promote me to Green or even Blue! Slowly slowly though. I’m in Younique for the long haul because it’s fun and I enjoy it. Just need to find recruits who feel the same way. That’s the key. You can’t get anywhere in Younique without your team! Want to #jointheAteam? I’d welcome you!
That is it for another ‘My Week in Younique’ where I try to give a bit of insight as to what it’s really like to be a Younique Presenter and Sponsor. Of course everyone’s experience is different but I’m just hear to share mine with you. That’s one thing I love about Younique is that we’re all carving our own path! Is it time for you to carve yours?
Well, here we are again with another instalment of ‘My Week in Younique’ – where I candidly share my experiences of being a Younique presenter and sponsor…This update covers Younique’s August Kudos, promotions (or lack thereof), and the German launch.
In July managed to get over 1000 in PRS but was aiming for 10,000 so came up a little short.
You may have read on my blog that I’d hoped to hit green (10k) or blue (4k) but didn’t even manage pink (2k). Better luck this month, eh? Younique’s a challenging business – to be sure. But I still love it. In fact, earlier this week, I wrote a blog about what Younique is and what it’s not. If you’re thinking of joining it might be worth perusing it…
Younique’s August Kudos
This month’s Kudos is the “Three for Me Bundle”> Bronze. Brighten. Brag a little – which looks really nice. You can pick up a bronzer, an eye liner and for the first time ever – a lipstick called “Opulence”. Exciting times ahead me thinks (lipsticks on the horizon). I used to wear lipstick myself but ever since joining younique, I’ve only worn our lip glosses and stains so will be interesting to see the new product.
New Company Congrats
It’s not like me to not be the top seller in my company but this month the A-Team’s been rocking it – in particular the newest teamie Lucy who had the top sales and Kelly her upline. They both did fabulous. There was only one mascara between them…
Meanwhile, I came in third out of the thirteen of us…I did have a lovely last minute sale in the final hours of the month — from a stranger in Glasgow. Often my website sales are in England (and not Scotland where I live most of the year) or in various states…So it was nice to get a buyer in Glasgow for a change!
Younique’s German Launch
Yesterday we finally launched in Germany. I can’t wait to get some German recruits to #jointheAteam – hopefully soon. I did have a few emails from ladies in Germany ages ago now – but it’s been very quiet of late so will need to reach out to see if they’re still interested. In any event it’s exciting we launched in Germany now and next stop it’s Mexico in October.
Kit Snatchers Wanted
Right now, until we sell a million of our new 3D Fiber Lashes+ Mascara – you can pick up a ton of makeup with free shipping. No selling or recruiting needed. Just grab the makeup and go. Plus right now you get not one set of Younique’s Mascara but 2 sets of the 3D Lashes! How great is that? If I can get three people to grab a kit, then I can be a part of the +You movement and score myself a charm. So help me out by grabbing some makeup now! 🙂 It’s a win/win!
Younique UK Orders – Save on Shipping
Just a reminder if you’re in the UK, you can order through me directly to save yourself some money.
The 3D mascaras run £23.00, and I offer FREE local delivery in Glasgow – or else it’s £3.50 to anywhere in the UK.
As a mascara to the UK will run you £6.95 for shipping (by courier from Utah), buying through me saves you £3.45.
Please contact me direct for more info on 3DLashes @ youniquebythea dot com.
Any other questions get in touch on that same address OK?
Only July 1, 2015 Younique announced its flagship best-seller 3D Fiber Lash mascara has been totally revamped – inside and out.
That day, they went on sale to Younique presenters only, and buy, we did in droves…That day we sold over 23,000 in just one day (23,110).
Now just two days away from the official launch date of these new 3D Fiber Lashes+ (July 15) my Y-sisters and I aim to break a global record of selling a million mascaras in just one day*.
My personal goal is to sell 300 sets in the month of July. Yes, I have a long way to go (290 or so), but you set your sights and you go for it. Right?
“What the Plus”? How Lashes+ Are Better
You may be wondering what the difference is between our original 3D lash formula and the new 3D Lashes+. The answer? Almost everything from the ingredients, to the packaging, to where it is now made (in the USA!)
We’ve swapped the green tea leaves for Rayon, and they’re now enriched with our gorgeous Uplift Eye Serum to help nurture your lashes, and the packaging is now eco-friendly. They used to increase volume of lashes by up to 300% but now it’s closer to 400%.
As you may know we sell more than mascara,…we have amazing skin care products, lip glosses, stains and liners and a percentage of every purchase from a Younique presenter helps empower sexually abused women.
*The downside of being such a successful company is that I predict we’ll achieve it and then the company will be hammered with orders – which may cause some delays. I hope I am wrong.
If 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??
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 #jointheAteamso 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!

Well I am back with another update. I’d let the weekly updates lapse a little but striving to get them back onto a more regular basis. Last time was a month update (oops).
In my last blog post I talked a little about our expansion into Mexico – following a webinar that I was on the line for this week.
Younique Has “Epic” News
So it appears we have some majorly big news coming this week – July 1st. I have no idea what it is. I can’t even come up any with any possible theories of what it might be. I’m completely stumped…
What could be “Game-changing. Revolutionary. Ground-breaking”? I do love how good Younique is when teasing their news. They always seem to be hatching some interesting plans.
I hope it lives up to the hype! The email says we’ll not be disappointed and that Younique co-founder Melanie Huscroft will spare no details on the webinar in four days. Can’t wait to see what she’s got to reveal! I will let you know after the webinar.
Younique launches in Mexico October 1, 2015. From that webinar, it sounds like a very exciting country to expand to – given their mobile proliferation and love of makeup there! Would love some lovely Mexicans to #jointheAteam! Maybe I should use this launch an excuse to head south of the border next time I am in California? A little sunbathing, recruiting excursion?
While we’re we are on the subject of Younique expansion into other markets, just a wee reminder, we are no longer launching in Germany in July – but rather August 1. I can’t wait as I have had interest from Germany for women to join Younique but they now have to wait one more month!
Get Thea to Green
Last month I had a cracker amount of sales. Best of the year to date. This month, June, has been a bit too quiet for my liking – to be honest.
I did sell out of the 3D mascaras, as I say, but there were few sales placed on my Younique by Thea website. I am determined to promote higher in July. Green if possible. So I plan to implement my Get Thea to Green campaign. It’s my birthday, you see, in July, and I’ve decided to say to family/friends “don’t buy anything for me – but shop for yourself or someone special” through my website.
This goes for anyone looking to buy 3D fiber lash mascaras, lip stains, eye shadows or other Younique products!
Buy in July! Win/win. They get wonderful naturally-based makeup and products, and I hopefully sell 10,000 USD (Over #£6,300) in order to promote. That said #theAteam needs to sell too (and qualify) in order for me to progress up to Green. Frankly it’s a lofty goal but I am going for it!
Pay for Younique with Paypal!
This morning I woke up to news that makes me so happy. As I am someone who runs their Younique business from both the US and the UK – I use different credit cards to purchase products. For some reason, I’ve had issues using my Californian card and details. I had to resort to sending a friend in Ohio money via Paypal so she could use her card. It was very frustrating, so much so, I actually complained and asked support to pass on my suggestion to the top man Derek, and allow PayPal payments (dated May 18)!
Anyway, around a month later, the news arrives, that we now can! Am not saying it was due to my suggestions – but regardless, I am over the moon! I look forward to trying it later to buy some new 3D Fiber Lashes because I am sold out, again!
I’ve been building websites (some of them ecommerce) for TWENTY YEARS now, so I felt confident in my suggestion to him. I’d like to give some other pointers but that’s perhaps best saved for another day and time 😉
My Upline Says “Goodbye” to Younique
On a not too terribly surprising note, my upline has decided to leave Younique. She, like many started out full of fire, shooting for Black and then it slowly petered out. She’s got other things to focus on, a book, and some other MLM type things (I think?) but like several of my own team – she’s decided it’s not for her. This business is not for everyone. I totally get it.
We in the UK are just about eight months down the line, and I still love Younique, the products and the business, and am still 100% committed – but like everything in life, it’s all “subject to change”.
For everyone who is not Mexican – Cinco De Mayo celebrates Mexico’s defeat over the France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 – so it’s only fitting that Younique celebrates it this year by launching its products in Mexico!
This is a perfect time to learn as much as you can about the business, try the products and get in early when we launch the opportunity to join as presenters.
My Younique by Thea business was in place from the day we started selling in the UK, and it felt exciting to be a part of it from its launch here. The sooner you can get on board with Younique the better.
As a result of the upcoming Younique launch to join the business in Mexico later this year, I am currently searching for any Latina and/or Spanish-speaking ladies who love makeup, and enjoy trying, applying and talking about it, who want to #jointheAteam!
If you want to work from home, a coffee shop, by the pool, at the beach, or anywhere really, then Younique is a way to do just that.
If you want to have more time to spend with your family, friends or whoever you choose, by running your own company in your own time and way, with Younique, you can.
It is a super fun business to be in! It empowers women around the globe to both – look and feel – beautiful on the inside and out.
Externally the makeup will enhance your beauty. Internally you can feel empowered for running your own business and helping other women achieve their goals too. Younique encourages us all to be our best selves. It’s a wonderful challenge. It’s always changing and so exciting. My skin feels great and that makes me feel more sexy. I think you will love it too.
If you’re in Mexico and need a Younique sponsor to sign up with – then I say “Welcome”. I’d love to hear from you by email – younique (at) theanewcomb.co.uk if you’re interested or if you have any more questions about how Younique works.
Working on a Spanish Translation for this page now!
Younique Launches in Germany Soon Too!
Before we launch the ability to Join Younique as a presenter in Mexico, we’ll be launching in Germany in July. So I’d love to speak to anyone in Germany who’s interested in joining Younique there. I’ve already got interest from German ladies in Berlin and Hamburg. So if you’re in Germany or Mexico and looking for a sponsor, I’d be happy to be that for you!
Well, I’ve been a Younique Presenter and Sponsor for over six month now. It’s been quite a ride – that’s for sure!
Honestly? It’s been filled with some pretty high highs and, truth be told, some disappointing lows.
But, do you know what? Over all, I still love it. I am still 100% committed to continuing and moving up the ladder.
This (long) blog will highlight a bit more, why and some discoveries I’ve been making along the way.
“THERE IS NO I IN TEAM”
The trick, in my opinion, with Younique is attracting the right kind of team mates. To date I’ve had about fourteen team members (I think) in total. Now there are maybe eight, including me, and three of those are marked to become “inactive” at the end of the month which is hard to witness.
Out of those three, ONE, I believe, will pull it out of the bag and continue. The others will remain to be seen. (I suspect they’ll drop off.)
That has been the biggest hurdle, for me, in running my Younique business. I don’t find sales hard. I get them regularly. Sure I could use more, but I manage to “qualify” every month, it’s not hard. (Most of my sales are strangers not family and friends.)
I don’t find recruiting hard. I have gotten new team mates every month just about. What I have found challenging is sourcing recruits who are 100% committed to making it to the top! NO MATTER WHAT!!
I thought I had some of those before, they were so excited to join. They started out so strong and so positive, but they didn’t turn out to be. They got side-tracked or just gave up. They dropped off.
So right now it appears to be just ONE out of EVERYONE I have had the pleasuring of sponsoring who seems to want it, really want it.
One A-teamer who has the time, the focus, the commitment and tenacity to truly make it happen.
One who appears to want to learn, as much as humanly possible, about the business, about the products, and to experiment with looks and social media channels.
That’s the kind of person I need on my team in order to promote up the ladder and a few more just like her, but as the saying goes…
“IT’S A NUMBERS GAME”
One video I watched last week was by US Black Status Presenter Michelle Bell (who I get to meet tomorrow here in Scotland; more on that in a minute). She talked about the numbers and odds of success in this business. The rule of thirds as it were.
If you recruit ten, maybe three will do something with it. I believe I have three who will – just like she says.
Two of the three though have jobs and kids (one grandkids) etc getting in the way, and so their focus is not on building a Younique business.
That’s ok. They still can have a pretty solid and fun business – simply achieving yellow and not promoting further up the ladder. Am still happy to have them on my team. I truly am.
But in many ways, the ideal team mate is one who is ambitious, who pushes through any negativity that may arise, or down days that come (and both do happen regularly) to keep laying foundations for a successful business in the long term. Ones who will continue to work even when seeing no results coming in. That’s the real challenge! Putting in so much time and effort and not getting cheesed off when you’re not getting immediate results.
Watching my own team from the side lines, there has been no consistency for most of them and that’s been frustrating. I can’t make them post daily, or every other day, I can’t make them love their business. I can only lead the horse to water – beyond that, it’s up to them.
I found found that consistency is the key. Posting about the business regularly. Not always sharing links but in sharing the love of the business! In fact, truth be told, I seldom post any links. My “selling” is really just through my enthusiasm! That’s infectious!
That’s where I find my Younique sales “easy” while the others find it more difficult.
One reason it’s hard for them is because they’re telling themselves it’s “hard” or that “there is so much competition now”. I’ve heard many of them say this to me.
Secondly, they’re not being consistent with talking about the business excitedly and positively DAILY.
Back to the whole “hard” thing. To me, Ford had it right. So much of our success boils down to our thinking.
There are probably hundreds of Younique presenters in Glasgow (or Central Scotland) but I never give any of them a single thought. Why would I? I have to keep my eye on my own business.
Sure, occasionally, I check out the competition on social media to see how they’re marketing their own Younique business, but really their business is just that…Their business.
Also, I know that I will appeal to some people, and not to others. The same goes for my Y-Sisters.
There are some uplines I look at who just don’t “speak to me” the way others do. I get people saying “my friend is doing Younique too” and then they go and buy from me!
I’ve probably had friends go buy from someone else. That’s the nature of the beast.
To be a success in Younique (which I am certainly striving to be), I believe you need to be positive, enthusiastic and consistent in your posting and in your attitude.
I manage to post about Younique every single day – on my various channels. Some days I do so on every channel – other days on one or two (e.g. Twitter @newthea and Google+).
But every day I am putting something positive out there about this fabulous Younique Opportunity. EVERY DAY!!
I try to blog every week – sometimes more than once. It is my hope that with this very blog, I can educate and communicate with those who are thinking about buying Younique products, like our 3D Fiber Lashes or who are considering joining Younique and needing a sponsor.
6 MONTHS DOWN – CURRENT OUTLOOK
So it’s been six months, how do I feel? Well, I already mentioned the team thing’s been a real challenge. As I said, I have no trouble recruiting team mates at all, and never have from the very start, but finding ones who want to stay in the business, who love it as much as I do, and are committed to building a team – that’s been difficult.
If you’re thinking of joining Younique, I am 100% certain you’ll experience a similar thing. The challenges and frustrations but it can teach you a lot about yourself and your own team management too! So that’s perhaps a good thing.
Remember that it’s a numbers game, but it is also important to work out who your “ideal recruit” is, and then how to attract them, by the messages you’re putting out there.
While I am happy to have team mates that just want to buy the makeup for themselves – and not sell or recruit – the real gold is in the business builders with the same dream as me.
HAVE YOU MADE MUCH MONEY?
In short? I’ll be honest with you, no, not at all. Not what you want to hear, but I vowed to be as transparent as possible from the outset of My Week in Younique posts.
To be clear….Some months I’ve done pretty well. One month it paid the mortgage. Woot Woot!
Some months I haven’t done good commission wise at all. January was paltry!
The real reason I’ve not made much money with Younique is because there is a real temptation of plowing all the earnings back into the business.
In the first few months with Younique, I made a conscious decision to ensure that I had every single Younique product. I feel it’s essential to run a good business I need to have personally tried them all. I need to be able to show the products, talk about them, and blog about them here.
So a lot of my commissions get spent. Now I don’t have every colour, but I have all Younique products.
I also use the products every day. I genuinely love the products which also probably helps me sell it. That passion comes through in everyone I speak with. Just ask them! Once I start going, I don’t shut up!! But that’s also why I don’t have a tone of “profit”.
HOW’S LIFE BETTER WITH YOUNIQUE?
Another benefit to joining Younique is that I have made some new friends through the business.
Both on my upline (r) team mates and downline too.
People I can talk to about the business, ask questions, get advice or give advice too.
I am a Social Media Trainer who trains businesses every day – so I enjoy a business that allows me to be a mentor for my team mates if they need one! (Some have asked for help and training and others don’t take me up on the offer).
I had a 4-hour video call with one of my newest recruits, Kelly, on Friday. FOUR HOURS! Can you believe that? Talking about the products, about social media best practices, and about the business challenges and the joys too.
That was a real pleasure. I think we could have kept right on talking had it not gotten to be 1am! So this business really is FUN but…
YOUNIQUE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE
I have seen, first hand, that Younique is not for everyone. Some I sponsored tried it, and got cheesed off, for one reason or another. Some had health issues come up. Some had family or job things get in the way.
But you know what? The people that had these sorts of obstacles put them off really just didn’t love the business enough to want to make it work. When you do really want something so bad, you’re 100% committed to it – in spite of the challenges.
US BLACK STATUS TRAINING
Dozens of Younique Black Status presenters do videos and training. They have groups or websites to help train their downlines to promote.
I watch them all the time. Well, tomorrow, four, US, Younique Black Status Presenters are coming to Glasgow to have a dinner and share pearls of wisdom. I have volunteered to help out by signing people in.
It should be a fabulous event, and a chance to meet these Rock Stars in the flesh. So yes, that’s a real exciting Younique Opportunity for me.

Though it’s been long, I do hope this update has given you something to think about – particularly if you’re interested in Younique as a possible “Plan Be” for yourself or even to run it as a full time business.
Though it’s not an easy business, there is no “get rich quick” opportunity here, I have absolutely loved being a presenter and sponsor to a team in the US and the UK.
I can’t wait to have people join the team from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and soon Mexico, Germany too! Oh yeah, speaking of which, I think I have my first recruit there already. She’s Iranian, the room mate of a friend, and lives in Hamburg, Germany. She seems very excited. We’ll see what happens there…I’ll certainly keep you posted!
Tomorrow, Cinco Di Mayo we launch our products in Mexico! I’ll try to write more about that and the training tomorrow night.
