When I was home on Christmas break I had the chance to meet up with a Younique presenter named Simone Proctor. Simone was so sweet and we talked for a while a cute coffee house in town. Simone describes herself as “a Network Marketing Professional with Younique.” She states, “our mission is to uplift, empower, validate and ultimately help build the self-esteem of women around the world. Through high-quality products that encourage these core values – along with spiritual enlightenment – we’re enabling opportunities for personal growth and financial reward to women everywhere.”
-Why did you become a Younique presenter?
“I loved the opportunity. Their mission is to uplift and empower women, which is important to me. My goal is to someday start a nonprofit that brings women closer to their relationship with God and Younque provides me with the unique opportunity to stay home with my children while still providing for my family. My family is my main priority and it’s so nice to have a job that works so well around that. One thing about being a Younique presenter is that to be able to sell and make money, you have to love the product. Not only do I love the product, I love the company behind it. If you have a suggestion they will make changes because it is still such a young company. There are just so many opportunities to succeed!”
-How does Younique work exactly?
“Younique is a direct sales network marketing profession and is unique in that it works with social media. A lot of it is done virtually on Facebook, Instagram etc. You can literally run your entire business online if you want to but I feel personal relationships are important, so I focus on both. I meet with and/or skype with my team regularly to check in and help team members set goals to succeed. I am a Younique presenter because I want to uplift women and form lasting relationships. As soon as I noticed my Younique comapany was taking off I decided to quite my day job. To be succesful you haver to work hard at it. I like marketing and talking to people so it works well for me.”
-What kinds of products do you sell through Younique?
“We sell all natural based skincare and cosmetics. We are still such a young company so the product line is slightly limited but they are coming out with a new catalogue for the spring and I am hoping for some new amazing products. My favorite product, if I had to choose, would be the primer. I love it!”
-I have heard great things about the Younique 3d Fiber Lash Mascara…how do you like it?
“I like it a lot because it is very light weight, has no fillers and is all natural. Also, it increases the length of your eyelashes up to 300%.”
-What are the benefits of being a Younique presenter vs. direct sales at other companies?
“It only cost $99 to join and the webiste and starter kit (pictured above) are included. You must sell/purchase $125 every three months or you become inactive but once you reach the quota you become active again. Another nice thing is that you even get your own bank account and get paid daily onto your Younique debit card. They also just announced an incentive trip to the Bermudas (discussed on her blog here). There is very low risk when joining and selling Younique because you do not have to stock up on inventory. I sell Younique as a full time profession and I love it.”
I learned a lot and was definitly captivated by Simone as a person, the product and the company she worked for. Simone is hoping in the future to start her own nonprofit to uplift women and help them in today’s society to have a life that is in a close relationship with God. She wants to help women lead a balanced life and pick them up when they are struggling. I think she will be amazing at it!!!
I can tell she is going to be extremely successful and I wish her the best in her Younique endevors and starting her non-profit!
