My Story – Why Did I Take The Plunge?

My Story – Why Did I Take The Plunge?

Why did I join Younique?

Let’s rewind to my high school graduation. I graduated in 2010 and I was working as a custodian at a local high school. I was 17 years old and I had a town job, not bad at all. I stayed there for a little under a year, and then I moved to a retail position where I made about $3 an hour LESS than what I made when I worked at the school. Since then, I jumped from retail position to retail position, and I was never happy with where I was. I suffered from anxiety and depression, and it made having a job where I had to leave the house constantly a nightmare.

I graduated college in 2013 with an Associate’s degree in Psychology, and I was two semesters away from a Bachelor’s degree when I dropped out. I couldn’t justify spending thousands of dollars on something that I wasn’t passionate about, I was a broke retail worker.

Fast forward to today. I have a part-time job in a bakery, but I have it as a hobby. I still have anxiety and depression, but I’m learning to manage it, I’m a lot happier at home, and I’m not miserable when I have to leave. I work my Younique business full-time and that is how I pay for most of my expenses.

I joined Younique because I wasn’t happy with the traditional retail position, I didn’t enjoy the sales quotas, the consequences for not meeting said quotas, and just not feeling appreciated by the company, the customers and sometimes my own supervisors.

So why did I join?

  1. With Younique,  you have ZERO quotas to meet. Period. You are not obligated to sell anything.
  2. You have no boss. All you have is your upline, which is full of amazing women that encourage you and support you, and they want you to succeed WITH THEM. There is no competition, just encouragement.
  3. You are not obligated to stay. Once you purchase the Presenter’s Kit, you can run with it. Keep the makeup and don’t sell anything. You don’t have to stay active and you won’t be charged a fee for going inactive. There is NOTHING TO LOSE.
  4. Sharing Younique products with other women gives them self-confidence, and that in itself is so rewarding. Of course, EVERY WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL WITH AND WITHOUT MAKEUP. I’m not saying that they aren’t. What I’m saying is that when women feel beautiful, they feel confident, and if that means throwing some mascara on or putting on a full face of makeup to feel beautiful, then good for them! I personally go days without makeup and then I’ll suddenly wear a full face for three days in a row. It’s all about what makes you feel beautiful and confident about yourself.
  5. Joining Younique means joining the mission in uplifting, empowering, and validating women around the world. When our founders created Younique, they didn’t want to make more money, they had a vision to make women feel valued and smart, and empowered through opportunities for personal growth, financial freedom, and a sisterhood dedicated to encouraging and building the self-esteem of each other.

You may have some questions. Here are a few FAQ’s, but if you have any other questions, please feel free to message me or comment them below:

– What if I don’t know anything about makeup?

  • Some of our highest presenters knew NOTHING about makeup when they started. Even I bought most of my makeup from the drugstore. You don’t need to be proficient in your makeup skills to be successful. Besides,  I WILL TEACH YOU! I will teach you everything I know through videos, messages, face-to-faces, anything you want to know that I know, I will teach you. And I’m still learning, too, so we’ll learn together!

– How will I find the time?

  • Who has time for anything? NO ONE. I have made time for this, and the best part about it, you can fit it in WHENEVER! Before work, after work, while the kids are napping, while they’re in school, in bed, ANYTIME! You work from your cell phone, anytime, anywhere, as little or as much as you want to. And let’s be honest, you’re probably on Facebook anyway right?

– What if I’m annoying?

  • Who wants to be annoying? I struggled with this one a lot. No one wants to be annoying, and there are ways of doing this without being that way. Instead, I’ll teach you how to be inspiring, and how to be someone people want to learn from and be like in their makeup skills.


Have I piqued your interest, even in the slightest?

If you’re looking for something where you can stay home in your pj’s or if you just need something for you, this is it, and you need to message me!

I’m not going to annoy you, or send you millions of messages. This is YOUR decision and I can only share my story.

But I can tell you that it has changed my life.

With the new products and everything that we’re coming out with in the next few months, which I cannot wait to talk about, this is an opportunity that you won’t want to pass up.

Worst case scenario, you got a $211 makeup kit for $99. What is there to lose?
