So now that I wrote a post on Direct Sales and why people do decide to go with them, let me talk to you about why I chose Younique as a Direct Sales Company. I found my passion, and I would like to share with you the whys.
Because I love makeup:
It’s quite simple, I have always loved makeup and I was never afraid to spend some money on products. I was never a frugal shopper, often buying upper end products. I refused to go out in public without it, so why not invest in products where I’ll get a return and show amazing products for others in case they were interested in buying? If you purchase something you love and show it, your friends will keep that in mind next time they’re looking for a product. In fact, I had a friend saying she was going shopping on the Sephora Web Site, so what did I do? I mentioned Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner (because it’s amazing) and guess what I saw when she posted a picture of her purchase? That’s right, the tattoo liner. I wasn’t going to push her and say “Buy my stuff” no, that’s not my goal, my goal is to share my love of makeup, and luckily enough, most of it is from my company (that would just be awkward if I didn’t like a lot of my products)
Because my Starter Kit was Worth it:
Who doesn’t love getting a bunch of makeup at an amazing price? Ok, maybe someone who doesn’t wear makeup, but for those who do, don’t you love a deal?? Yes, Younique has an amazing Starter Kit and it is a great investment to start your own business. Or even if you just want the kit, or just want to get a whole bunch of products at a discount, so you join, get a bunch of makeup at a great price, and then order more at a discount. There are so many ways.
It is a one time investment with Younique, no other fees to keep it going. No Website Fees, no monthly fees, no activation fees (you have to reach your Personal Retail Sales every 3 months but if you don’t succeed or don’t want to sell, you’re not penalized, you just go into suspension and eventually deactivate)
Because we are our Own Boss:
Yes, like any company, you have rules to follow, you want to keep it classy. But you can decide how you want to work. You can work directly online, from anywhere, or if you work better offline, then, no problem. You do not need to have a Facebook account (although it helps to keep in contact, but Instagram, Google and Email works to join). You take selfies of YOU, you share YOUR looks, and you share YOUR favourite products. You can chose to do live videos, recorded videos, no videos, catalog parties, online parties, in-home parties, work parties, the sky is the limit. You can work full time or you can work part time. You decide your hours, and if one day you want to sleep in (or every day) so do it! You can call in sick, you can go to your children’s recitals, you don’t have to worry about losing your sick days, and you can take a vacation whenever you want. You don’t have a set salary, your income depends on the work you put. You can NOT reach the top by doing nothing, you have to work for it. But when you’re doing something you love, is it really considered work?
Because you meet Amazing People:
If you are a people person, this job is for you. If you love to help people feel good about themselves, this is for you. I’m not saying message them and tell them to put makeup on. I am saying by working on yourself, you will see that it will reach others. Also, when you join, you are added in a group where free training is provided as well as a place to ask questions. We want you to succeed in your business and mental support is provided. Also, the person whom you join with, will help you reach the top, because that is the purpose of having people join, is to take the responsibility and help them grow. You can not grow in your company if you do not help those on your team. The journey has to be done together. (Personally, I love this)
Because Younique has an Amazing Mission:
Did you know that Younique was created not only to help women in their success, but our CEO wanted to help his sister get out of debt? But also, he (yes, he) created this company with a sole purpose, that in 5 years time, he would open up the Younique Foundation. A Foundation that is purpose is to help women who have been sexually abused. It is a place for them to heal. Did you also know that he was able to open this Foundation in 2 years and not 5? And that now, his wife has started the #StartDefending Organization? Created to help spread awareness on sexual abuse in children? This organization is important to me on a personal level, and I am always in awe with how amazing these people are. I consider myself extremely lucky to be part of this company for this reason.
Because this Company is Growing!:
Younique keeps growing and expanding and getting more and more known, and yet has zero debt!! That’s right, Younique will NOT be closing its doors anytime soon, it just keeps getting better and better. When I started in 2014, we didn’t have much except for our mascara. Now? We keep expanding with new products. We are about to get an amazing skin care line that looks so gorgeous. We have products for everyone! And because we are presenters selling them, there is a satisfaction guaranteed. Are you able to return your mascara to your store if you don’t like it? You can return your mascara to the presenter you purchased from if you don’t like it. When Younique started, it was only in the United States, Then Canada, Australia, United Kingdoms, New Zealand, France, Germany, Spain, soon to be Hong Kong, and next year Italy… I might be missing a few, but it’s not stopping.
We are Spoiled and Recognized:
Younique recognizes every milestone, every step, every promotion, and all the hard work you put into the company. You receive a shout out, and you also receive charms. You may think now “whatever” but when you are with the company and receive a charm, you realize the hard work that you have put in has paid off and hasn’t gone unnoticed. If you have any questions, you can contact the company. You have Empower You that you can attend, you have Convention every year, and let me tell you, Convention is a life changer. I went to my first one this year, and not only did I learn so much, but we were so spoiled with gifts, swag, products, knowledge, you name it. When your CEO is walking out on that stage, and looks at you, with tears of joy in his eyes because he is so grateful of all the hard work you have done, it makes it hard to NOT be emotional. I don’t know how many times I cried at Convention. Oh, we also got a free concert and a free guest singer on the last day. I have met so many amazing women, women that I didn’t know, and yet, when I got there, it’s like we were best friends. At the airport, waiting for my flight, I met women. My confidence has built up, and my motivation is there. I want to keep pushing. That’s what Convention does to you.
Oh, and to say it again, there is only our Starter Kit fee, makeup at a great price… no other fees.
Because I have become a Better Person:
I remember when I started, I wasn’t sure. I hesitated, but finally decided to join, but for other reasons. It was my first Direct Sales company and I was a total newbie, still am, I’m not going to lie. but from who I was in 2014, is no longer who I am in 2015. I have become a much better person. I have become confident in myself. I have now been able to walk around WITHOUT makeup. Yes, I sell makeup, but I also sell skin care that has made me feel better about me. I have worked on myself as an individual. I have learned to become positive, and things have changed for the better. There is no more drama on my page, no more complaining (ok, sometimes, but it’s not annoying complaining, you’d understand if you saw my page – I’m still human after all) I feel good now, and I want others to feel good. I want women to know that they are beautiful and I want to make sure they can see it.
Bonus : Pay Day!:
This is a super big bonus, because I don’t know any other company that does this (if there is, that’s great! I just don’t know of them). You are paid 3 hours AFTER a sale! Yes, 3 hours!! So you can get paid many times a day. This is perfect for those who may struggle with money and would need it ASAP. You can work your behind off, and make a sale, and get your commission. How amazing is this? You also get a prepaid credit card, which counts as a regular credit card. So if you don’t have one, or can’t qualify for one, you automatically receive one with Younique. Your commissions are automatically transferred to your credit card and can be used as soon as it’s on it. You can also transfer it to your bank account if needed. Seriously, how cool is that?
And those are my reasons for why I am with Younique as a Direct Sales Company. I know there’s so much more, and I will probably think about them later, but, for now, I think it pretty much sums it up. 🙂 If you would like to know more about Younique and the benefits, you can do so by clicking here.
