I had an “Aha!” moment today.. I sell thirty one gifts in addition to Younique. My bestie buddy and I were at a celebrate and connect meeting and were awed by a Senior Executive Director telling her story of becoming a thirty one consultant and her path from starting as a consultant and working her way up to leadership. Her story struck home for many of us.. She started with the company 7 years ago. Thirty One (actually started here in TN!) is 10 years old.
I started thinking.. WOW to have the opportunity to start on the ground floor and grow as an individual and business woman with a new and rising star!!! What a dream come true.. then I came home and promptly took a nap. LOL (what can I say, I’m old and a girl’s day out makes me tired). When I woke up, it dawned on me.. I’ve done just that. I’ve started with Younique while it is still an infant on the market. It is estimated that Mary Kay has 2 million consultants and Avon has 5 million consultants.
When you sign up to become a consultant (or presenter as Younique calls us!) you are issued an ID number. That ID number coincides with the number you are as a consultant (for instance, I start a new company, my ID number is 1, my buddy (I’m picking on her tonight because I know she is asleep and I’m wired from my nap) signs up and she is consultant #2.. and so on.
You don’t go around telling everyone your number since that is your ID for the company, but here is what I can tell you.. I’m doing fabulous with thirty one, and my number is somewhere between 30 thousand and 40 thousand.
My presenter number for Younique is under 3000. WOW.. I’m one of the first 3000 people that stumbled on this company, tried their product and fell in love with it. I don’t think I can get much more ground floor than that!
Younique is all of the buzz words you hear.. hot, fast growing, up and coming, busting the scene, about to explode.. it is all of those things. It is the first company that I have come across that is seeing the new generation of customers for what they are.. they are tired of the chemicals, and they are busy, busy, busy.. they do their shopping online. They don’t have a lot of time for in home parties (which I LOVE doing with thirty one, don’t get me wrong). They stay connected to their friends, family and favorite products through social media. We text, we email, we tweet and we connect on facebook. That is why they encourage (yes encourage) you to have parties online.
They also understand that many of us need our commissions when we earn them. We have bills to pay and gas to buy.. so, with your first sale, you get an email from ‘payquicker’ that walks you through setting up an account. You commission money goes into that account daily, as a sales roll in, your commission rolls in. Within a few days of setting up your account, you get a Younique Debit Card in the mail. Not a credit card that is going to get you in trouble, but a debit card. Your commissions are loaded immediately, and you have access to that money immediately. No worrying about a bad check, a bad credit card, no worries, just money in your pocket. Go forth and spend my pretties!!!! Put the card away and have it as a secret savings account for that next vacation!! Hide the card from yourself and let it be your no hassle christmas fund!!! If you need your money now, you have it.. if you want to save it, you can.. and I’m not going to lie, I am in love with the purple card. Purple is my favorite color LOL!!!
So, for $99, this is what I got:
All 15 Shimmer Pigment Testers
All 15 Matte Pigment Testers
All 6 Concealer Testers
All 5 Blusher Testers
3D Fiber Lashes
Eye Brush Set
Website FREE for 3 months! ($30 value)
$10 in Younique Cash for both you and your sponsor!
Unlimited Virtual Parties
White Status Charm
$25 USD/$30 CAN in Younique Cash on your Birthday annually!
PayQuicker Younique bank account
All of this comes in the signature black leather Younique case
So this is the value of my kit (cause I have to be anal and make sure I get my money’s worth for everything LOL)
Pigments, concealers, blushers: $89
Fiber Lashes (full sized baby!!) $29
Eye Brush Set: $45
$10 Younique Cash (money you can spend in your store!!) $10
and you also get catalogs and the case and the little things in life that make you smile. So, for $99, I got over $200 in products.. and I just wish my birthday wasn’t so far away!! LOL
Anyway.. back to my nap.. I woke up and I realized, I got in on the ground floor.. what does that mean for me? Where will I be in 7 years when the Younique presenter numbers are in the tens of thousands? Better yet.. what will my instant balance on my debit card be when I pull it out of the drawer I put it in when I leave out on vacation in a month. What will I do with it when I come back?? Will I put in in a drawer and leave i there for a year.. I think I might.
The next thing I did was look and see how many presenters there were in TN.. I counted twenty five.. hmmm.. not bad odds for me to be a little bit successful with this new venture…
So, I’m going to ask you.. if you had $99 and an opportunity to jump in on the ground floor of a company, would you? Would you do it it? I bet you would!
take a chance, take a journey with me, the worst thing that can happen is that you will have the best makeup kit you will ever own. That’s the very worst thing.
