Cards, Cosmetics and Coffee

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

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 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 – no 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

In the meantime, if you have any shopping to do, you can always check out my cosmetics on the Younique by Thea shop. Or maybe head over to look at cards, stationery and wrap on my Thea’s Cards site.

Soon you’ll be able to shop for coffee for yourself or someone who needs a pick-me-up. Watch this space.

My Week in Younique – Going Global

My Week in Younique – Going Global

It’s Sunday night, my break from Glasgow is coming to an end. It’s the final hours so celebrating by watching ‘Meatballs’ from 1979. An email just came in, another order via my Younique website. More 3D Fiber Lash mascaras (hooray!) I love getting all email notifications of sales but there is something most special when it’s people I don’t know…

#TheAteam Expands to California

Welcome to #theAteam - Younique by TheaDelighted to have new Younique team member from California called Tina. I’ve known Tina since high school in the ’80s and she is going to Rock Younique – big time. She’s already done another (more pushy) cosmetic MLM – and one for handbags – so her previous experience will truly help her Younique business grow. Very excited. Another old, Californian friend whom I’ve known almost as long, called Teri, may also join #theAteam….I find it kind of funny the 3 Cali gals all have four-letter T-names. Maybe it was a trend that year? (We’re all about the same age!)

So anyway watch this space on team growth. One of my initial goals was to have a team of 10 by January. I achieved that goal. I only have one outstanding goal which is not met and is not likely to be met by the scheduled time (February). That’s going Green. Judging by current progress that will be more like March or April. But miracles can happen, and I’ll just keep pushing forward.

Spending Younique Cash

Having reached Fast Start with Younique just last month, I finally ordered some products to complete my collection. As I’ve purchased a few of the collections already, I had almost all of our products anyway…What I was lacking still – were the Refreshed Rose Water and the Moodstruck Blusher. Since I love the Lucrative Lip Glosses so much, I ordered the entire set. All 10! Yippeee. I also thought it might be a good idea to get the brushes so I have ordered the set of those too! Can’t wait to round of my Younique collection of all products. I felt in order to really runt his business – I need to try ALL of the products and be able to show them to anyone I meet who is interested. It has meant I have a surplus of products here though (duplicates) so I will need to start to sell some of them soon!

I had trouble posting this blog on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday…but we got there in the end…
