Today has been such a great day! I went out for coffee with a girl friend, went Christmas shopping and bought a bunch of ornaments for my very own girly Christmas tree (so excited about this), and oh yeah, I hit Orange status in Younique. Orange! Ahhh! A Younique Elite Presenter. 🙂
You know that famous Zig Ziglar quote “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Holy moly, is that ever true?! I’m not sure if it ever really hit home like it has today. When I hit the Younique Elite Green status on November 1st, I was over the moon. Seriously, I was so elated and so proud of my team for what everyone accomplished on the 1st of the month. But today was something different. A lot different.
The Push To Younique Orange Status
There are some team members that really hoped to hit Green this month, so I’ve been working with them to help however I can. One friend in particular has been really, really close for a few days now. We’ve gone back and forth over Facebook and today was the day that it happened!
You see, in order for me to hit Younique’s Elite Orange status, I have to have one elite Green status or higher. The volume for Orange status was there, but I didn’t have an Elite. I knew that this particular person would hit it; I just didn’t know when. And that’s the beauty of this industry. It’s not all about me. It’s about helping your team members get to where they want to be and, in turn, you help yourself advance. What other business can you say that about?
Anyways, back to my story-telling…
She messaged me that she was only $89 away from Green. Then $18 away from Green. Then BOOM, she was Green! I have never felt the happiness that I felt for her in that moment when I learned that she hit green.
A little background on her – She was at the top of her previous company and left it all for Younique. I’ve felt a little pressure this whole time just because I’ve wanted her to blow it out of the water and I knew deep down, like she did, that she would. Her hitting Green status was the best part of my day. Reading that she was crying over it was amazing and I’ve never been so happy for someone.
Oh. And it’s only November 10th. Can you even imagine what’s going to happen by the end of this month?
A Team Of Younique Elite Presenters
Watching my team grow is the coolest thing ever! Just today alone, there have been so many promotions. Like someone said, “It’s like a rainbow”, which is so true. Yellows, Pinks, and Blues popping up all over the place. Like-minded women working towards a goal. An awesome team that has a positive and happy place to go to so that they can brag about their own team members. It’s so cool to be a part of! And no doubt we will be a large team full of Younique Elite Presenters.
I’m just so stinkin’ happy. Happy for everyone. Happy that I’ve met so many amazing women. Happy that sharing makeup is our “job”. Happy that we get to make other women feel great about themselves. Happy that we have a team that works together and motivates one another, while cheering each other on. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of and I sit back in awe so many times throughout the day. And now it is time to push to become an Exclusive Black Younique Presenter.
I’m so blessed to have found Younique. It’s so much more rewarding than I could have ever imagined and so much more than just selling 3D fiber lashes mascara!
And it seems appropriate to end this post with how I ended my Facebook status update earlier: #pinchmenow.
