To be fair – two of the days this week were spent traveling and unpacking after a month in California…
Earlier this week, this wee image (pictured right, on desktop version of this blog) has hinted at something BIG being announced on the 30th.
On the various FB group pages – we’re taking bets on whether it’s new products or new regions being announced. Or both.
I haven’t got any real clue, to be honest, so I am keen to see what is unveiled!
This Younique company is definitely exciting, I’ll give them that. There is always something happening. (Week before last they announced some big incentive trips – to Jamaica and the West Indies.) It’s always something new on the horizon…Definitely not boring, unlike my January…
Dull January Sales
Sales-wise it’s been a pretty dead month for both my team and myself too. One team mate, Marie, has knocked it out of the ballpark, sales wise. She’s done better than the rest of the company combined. I am so proud of her!
Currently one or two Californians have indicated that they may sign up on my team, and one gal in Scotland too. It would be so fantastic if they all did so – but I’ve found that a lot of people say they’re going to do something, and then they don’t really follow through…
It’s all a matter of timing, I guess. So in other words, just because they haven’t doesn’t mean they wont. I do my best to remain positive even though at times it’s a bit disheartening.
More Courier Hiccups
One of the earliest orders this month, placed via my Younique website, never showed. The tracking indicated it was “out for delivery” on the 14th (which is what I saw seven days later). My only thought is that it fell down the back of something and maybe got lost on that truck?
It’s unfortunate these courier issues have persisted. It’s something that could really makes us look bad – even though it’s a third party who is at fault! It’s our reputation on the line!
Thankfully, the Younique support team is super-quick at sorting things like this – and instead of the sending out a whole new set of 3D Fiber Lashes to the customer, I simply sent her down a set from my stash, and my set will be replaced. (I am happy to wait the 10 or so days, but wasn’t happy for my customer to! PS: She got hers one day later!)
Optimistic for Final Days
I try to remain optimistic for the final days – through my My Younique website, with the products I have in stock and for my team too. Leading a team is proving challenging.
On the one hand, you want to be supportive and bolster your team up, and on the other hand you don’t want to be a pain in the backside.
I’ve tried to arrange a get together for the team mates within traveling distance from Glasgow, and it’s been rather like herding cats.
So it may just be me and the aforementioned Marie – but that’s fine. I offered to buy dinner for the person who sold the most this month and it’s currently her!
My Younique Success in the Palm of My Hand
I will leave you with one bit of news (and picture). When I returned from California I returned to my Fast Start, Yellow and Pink Level Charms to add to my keychain!
The Yellow and Fast Start came with a normal letter signed by the co-founders.
The pink came in a glossy card and classy envelope. I imagine it just gets better all the way up to Black Status (when you get the $10,000 check).
Aiming for that my friends…
Watch this space.
Anyway, it’s late and time to wind this blog down. I didn’t think I had much to say but it turns out I did!
