March Product Launch!

What we have all been waiting for is finally here…..

HIGHLIGHTER PRODUCTS <3<3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was so beyond excited when the new products were released, and highlight was on the menu. Younique has done me proud by providing three different options to choose from 16299428_10100271008077488_7944107593130733305_nbased on personal preference. You can choose from 5 beautiful shades in either powder, cream, or cream to powder stick form!

I have tried iridescent in powder form, and it is absolutely stunning. I have fallen in love with the highlight, and I can’t wait to try the other kinds. If you like highlight, you need this product in your life ladies.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself – and this was when I didn’t have direct light!hl

Another really exciting segment of this launch is the setting products!

16299476_10100271010502628_4167930354003024475_n

This comes in both a powder and a spray, which again allows the user to decide based on preference.

I have tried the powder form, and it truly does finish off the look for a beautiful matte finish.

If you are looking for the perfect product to finish off your look and set your makeup in place for the day, look no further. We’ve got ya covered!

One of the beauty trends that keeps getting hotter is the art of brows! We already have two amazing brow products that I love in the brow gel and liner, but now my life has been simplified with something even better…16406420_10100271004599458_1954673227361687326_n

THAT’S RIGHT! A brow palette is now available. You get to pick from three different palettes based on skin tone and hair color, and you’ll have everything you need to give yourself some awesome brows. This product comes with different shades for filling in and highlighting your brows, and it even comes with setting wax!

This one is a must have for all the ladies out there trying to play that brow game, and the key to success will require the perfect tool…

16427407_10100271004774108_6372267265909610823_n

16299235_10100271009674288_4376925680831614557_n

The last special tool that has been added to our beauty arsenal is the new concealer brush! This brush can be used with a range of different powder products to help blend your makeup to a perfect finish! The dual ends help you to keep the product exactly where you want it in smaller areas on your face.

Younique Partners with Coty; A Billion Dollar Beauty Company

Hey folks,

I know I have been kind of absent for a little while doing some soul searching and making life changes, so I will explain that in another post to come. I just HAD to come on here and tell you all about some CRAZY thing that just happened…

Because HOLY CRAP!!

I just got an email that blew my mind. Ladies, are you familiar with brands like GUCCI, 15940715_364436983926266_1717680269005004226_nCalvin Klein, OPI, Marc Jacobs, and Cover Girl? (More in the image to the right –>)Well, all of these well-known brands are owned by one of the worlds LARGEST beauty companies – Coty – a company that has now entered into a partnership with the luxury cosmetics company that you all know I work for; Younique.

Check out a few quotes from the official press release: “Coty is one of the world’s largest beauty companies with approximately $9 billion in revenue”; “Coty is the global leader in fragrance, a strong number two in professional salon hair color & styling, and number three in color cosmetics.”

15966277_10154868611413744_4129218535815128847_n

Okay, so what does this MEAN? This essentially means that Younique has been recognized for its amazing products, value that we as presenters deliver, and the mission statement behind the entire company to UPLIFT, EMPOWER, and VALIDATE women by one of the largest corporations to the entire beauty industry around the world. This is INSANE.

This partnership holds SO much promise and is SUPER exciting for me.

  1. It means that we will be able to bring out new products more quickly
  2. Replenish supplies of existing products more quickly to reduce the chance of back orders for our awesome customers, AND
  3. We will be able to expand into new territories even faster with the help of our new backer.

If you enjoy makeup even a little bit, come and talk to me! NOW is the time to get involved with this company so that you can get settled in before all of the craziness begins when the new product and market launches start happening. If makeup isn’t your thing, that’s cool! Please share this so that it reaches more people that may actually be searching for something this awesome to fall in their lap. Every share helps my business SO much

Eeep! I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings.
(Please let it include great shimmery highlighters :P)

3 Reasons to Stop Calling Network Marketing a “Pyramid Scheme”

www.fitnessbeautytravel

“Don’t hate what you don’t understand” – John Lennon

I see posts online with people calling the Network Marketing industry a pyramid scheme all the time, and I hear it in person occasionally as well. I have to say, when this happens it takes a lot of effort to keep myself from educating the people that said it. For this reason, I have set out to hopefully educate some people about Network Marketing a little bit so that we can do away with this line of thinking. To start out, I want to provide you all with the TRUE definition of a pyramid scheme for a basic understanding in case any of you are unsure:

Pyramid Scheme: a form of investment (illegal in the US and elsewhere) in which each paying participant recruits two further participants, with returns being given to early participants using money contributed by later ones.

If you are one of the people that typically refers to Network Marketing companies as a pyramid scheme, I wanted to share these three reasons with you to hopefully help you understand why you should really stop.

UntitledNumber 1: It is untrue. As defined above, a pyramid scheme revolves solely around recruitment. So as an example I wanted to show you what a pyramid scheme ad looks like. I didn’t really browse that hard, I just went to a random advertising group on Facebook and scrolled for about 5 minutes. I found this gem to the left, and this is just the first I came across of what I am sure would be many to be found on the wall of that group. This isn’t an obvious pitch for a pyramid scheme, because obviously, they would get in trouble. However, I have a little insider knowledge with this $25 per referral ad because someone tried to recruit me for this kind of crap in the past. And that is exactly what it is – total bullcrap. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is a pyramid scheme. Their sole purpose is to go out and recruit people for the “company”. All they have to do to join is pay a small fee of $25+ dollars to join, and then they can start recruiting more people and earning money immediately. It is a constant return of cash from ONLY recruiting.

Do you see the difference between THIS and between legitimate Network Marketing companies? I hope you do, because it is pretty freakin’ huge… THERE ARE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES FOR SALE… If it is a company that has legitimate products for purchase, it does NOT qualify as a pyramid scheme, despite the fact that it does involve team building. In fact, when you think about a typical corporate environment, there are often bonuses for referrals. When you work at the company for so long, you are granted the opportunity to make recommendations for people that you think would be a good addition to the company. If they are hired, make it through the probationary period, and succeed in their role, you receive compensation for the recommendation. So when you think of it that way, the corporate environment has team building too! The problem here is that this industry is a relatively new concept to people, so it is difficult to grasp I guess. Think of it this way: Each person involved in Network Marketing is essentially the CEO of their own company. In order for a company to grow and become successful, they typically must have other employees and grow in size. It is the same with Network Marketing. To become truly successful, you need to build a team, and you need to nurture that team consistently to help them grow teams of their own as well. When you think of it this way, Network Marketing actually is more of an inverse pyramid. Why? Because in order for one person to be successful, they have to aid their team to be successful. You can’t just recruit a bunch of people, then sit back and rake in cash. You need to train your team, help your team to grow, and push your team to achieve new heights in their business. Nobody can simply sit back and get complacent, which appears to be a common assumption.

Number 2: It is offensive. Seriously though! If you ask anyone in the Network Marketing business what they think about people that refer to their JOB as being a pyramid scheme, chances are they will say that it drives them a little bonkers. It is just so frustrating to be so passionate about a company that you love, and to have so many people on so many different fronts constantly trying to dis what you do. We work HARD at what we do (or at least those of us trying to make this a real career) and it can be offensive and rude to have people look us in the face and call the Network Marketing industry a scam or a pyramid scheme. If you care about your friends and family involved in this industry, please do not use those terms when speaking to them about their business. Even when speaking to strangers, it is best if you just keep those words out of your vocabulary when discussing this topic. These days Network Marketing is becoming super popular for being part-time endeavors, so you seriously could be meeting tons of strangers every day that have businesses outside of their “real” jobs without your knowledge. If you want to avoid an awkward and uncomfortable conversation, just keep those little negative thoughts to yourself!

Number 3: It makes YOU look bad. I am aware that this one may offend a few people, because I am sure that there are a lot of you out there that are guilty of doing this on a fairly regular basis. However, I gotta be real… It seriously makes you look kinda silly and ignorant to those of us that actually know the true definition of a pyramid scheme. We live in a time where SO many people around the world are bringing in full-time earnings by working at home with their direct sales business. There are millionaires in many of these companies, and more and more are made all of the time. If you put the time and effort into this industry, and you are willing to learn and to grow as a person, you can be successful in this industry as well. To say that something is a scam, when it is clearly doing so much good for so many family and individuals around the world, is just ridiculous.

If you have been guilty of this, I want to encourage you to please just stop. Start thinking of Network Marketing for what it really is – a successful business opportunity not for the faint of heart.

Love Makeup and Travel? This is for YOU

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!

Anybody that knows me well knows that I have been bitten by the travel bug. I had the opportunity to go backpacking through Europe the summer after I got my B.A. degree, and ever since, it is always on my mind. I seem to always be thinking forward to the next opportunity that I will have to travel even before I finish whatever trip I happen to be taking at the time! I am so thankful that I have a business that is taking me to experience totally different and novel places. As a girl that grew up in a super small town in Eastern Canada, I didn’t really experience much of the world until a few years ago.

I can now say that I have been to Spain, France, and the UK. Technically speaking I’ve been to Germany and Ireland too, but I don’t count airports as being travel experiences lol. Within the US, I can now say that I have been to Chicago and California. Chicago was an amazing trip with a bunch of awesome ladies. I got to meet people from all over the world with a common interest: makeup and this awesome company we call Younique. It was so empowering to be around so many influential people, and I learned a lot from some of the top earning leaders within the company.

11036664_908869922499426_4636271728180098290_n

Beyond that, I also got to have a great time at the welcome party and the gala dinner. I took an extra day beyond convention because I wanted to explore the city, so I even have some great memories from just hopping on and off tour buses around the city to explore the different landmarks. I was the only one brave enough of my group of friends to go out on the sky deck, and though I was a little scared the floor would fall out underneath me, I managed to snap a few pictures before inching my wobbling legs closer to the main floor.

stlous

One of the women I met in Chicago actually happens to live in Missouri, so I am really excited to have an opportunity to truly explore the best parts of St. Louis while I am down there for the convention. I have already secured my ticket to convention, so I wanted to write to the ladies of the world that love makeup and travel and inform you of the early bird registration deadline. The deadline to purchase your convention ticket at the early bird price point was originally January 15th, 2016 – it has since been extended to February 15th! If you are a current presenter and you haven’t gotten your ticket, I strongly urge you to find the time and money to make it happen this year. You definitely won’t regret it!

If you are reading this as a fellow beauty and cosmetics-lover, and you also have a strong desire to travel, I would like to invite you to chat with me about this amazing opportunity. Younique has given me the confidence and the ability to explore new regions of the world, and I would love to have new positive people to come on this journey with me.

#1 Reason Why I Love What I do!

I was recently approached by a lady to order some products through me for Younique. She was struggling to place her order through paypal, and asked me to submit the order for her. I helped her get the order situated, and then after not speaking for a few days, I received a panicked message asking me if our products were tested on animals.

This was my response:

“Nope! Haha that is one of many reasons I love Younique. A lot of our product are gluten free as well, while some are fully natural. Mineral makeup is so much healthier for your skin. If you’re concerned about ingredients, you will find a list of all ingredients on our website. If you click on any product you’ll find an option to click so that you know exactly what is in what you are using.”
One of the amazing things about Younique is that they try to use the best possible ingredients in the products so that we can provide top-notch quality to our customers. You may not know this, but the UK actually has banned a significantly larger number of harmful chemicals and ingredients from being used in their cosmetics. Younique actually meets the UK standard of cosmetics, and has grown to be quite successful in the UK market! Additionally, they do not try to hide anything when it comes to what is in the products. Every single product on our website has a spot where you can select “ingredients” to learn about what was used in any given product!
The response that I got back after sending her this message was so positive, that I just had to share it with all of you!
“Oh wow!!! I am loving this more and more!! I have only been using the liquid mineral foundation for a week or two and my skin is already looking better with far less breakouts and I have had bad hormonal acne since I had my daughter, I see a big difference, I can’t wait for the concealer, powder and primer to come in, !!! As soon as the liquid mineral foundation is back in stock please let me know and I’ll order it right away I’m so scared to run out of it now. It’s funny you mention gluten-free I just started a gluten-free diet about a month ago. I’m so happy there’s no testing on animals that’s kind of a dealbreaker for me.”
This is the coolest thing ever!! I am so happy to receive positive feedback from my customers regarding products that they have been using and enjoying. If you have experiences with our products that you would like to share, feel free to post them in the comments! I would love to hear how others are enjoying our products as well.
If you have any questions concerning our products or you need help identifying the best products or shades for you prior to submitting an order, you are more than welcome to reach out to me at jessica@fitnessbeautytravel.com !

2016 Younique Incentive Trip Announcement!

EEK! So I found out where Younique will be sending us on our incentive trip in October of 2016 earlier today while I was at work. ALL day I was just itching to get home so that I could hop on my laptop and write about this amazing incentive!!

Are you ready for this ladies?

cozumel

Younique is sending us to Cozumel, Mexico on a FOUR-NIGHT CRUISE taking off from Miami with stops in Key West and Cozumel. That’s not all though. Last year the presenters needed to hit a second level of incentive points in order to be able to bring a guest with them on the cruise. This year – the BASIC incentive point standard will allow you AND a guest to go on a cruise paid for by Younique!!! This makes it THAT much more attainable for you to earn this trip for you and your significant other, spouse, best friend, whatever the case may be!

Who’s ready to get registered with me as a Younique Presenter NOW?

trunk

Now you should also know that even if you happen to fall a little short of collecting enough points for this cruise, there are STILL other fabulous prizes to choose from! You can earn up to $100 US in Y-Cash to spend on your own products and a phenomenal Younique-branded makeup trunk (which I have had my eye on for ages). The bonus prize for those who work extra extra hard and earn points beyond the cruise will earn themselves $150 US credit to be used on-board the cruise ship!

Now I know some of you are probably thinking you could never start now and qualify for the cruise, but that is NOT true. This trip could be earned by anyone regardless of their status, but it is going to take effort. You can earn points through sales, for advancing in status or maintaining your current status, having downline members maintain or advance in status, AND you can even earn 1000 points just for registering to go to convention this summer in St. Louis!! I went to Chicago last summer and it was so empowering and inspiring – definitely a must for all presenters that are serious about their business.

So what happens if you do earn the cruise? Well, you will get to go on a 4-day cruise with our amazing founders, Derek and Melanie, along with hundreds of fellow Younique sisters. Please note that you are responsible for getting yourself to the port in Miami where the cruise takes off. The cruise is covered by Younique, but the airfare will be up to you.

I don’t know about you, but I am FREAKING OUT over here. So excited to get my butt on that cruise and finally explore a bit of Mexico. I would LOVE for you to be on that cruise with me, so the question is, are you going to work for this with me?

Click here to register if you are prepared and willing to work for this with me!

How to get a Perfect Smokey Eye in 3 Simple Steps

NEW BLOG POST!

I have been practicing with makeup since middle school, which was before a lot of people my age at the time even wore makeup. Mind you, I was never very skilled at it back then lol. As I got older though, I got a lot better at application. I started teaching myself how to do things by watching videos on YouTube, much like many of you have done before I am sure. Through high school, and especially university, I would get a lot of compliments on my eye makeup. To this day, I still get compliments pretty regularly from people that say “Oh I could never do something like that, I have no idea how you do it”.

If this is you, well trust me when I say, YOU CAN. Honestly, my smokey eye looks are pretty freakin’ simple haha. I just use great products and apply it in a way that blends well and makes my eyes pop. It really doesn’t take that much time either, and you can literally do it in three simple steps. Now. My intention was actually to have a video to post in here with the demo photos, but I done messed up haha. I filmed the video last night after work, or at least so I thought. Come to find out, I must have missed the button when I hit record, because the only video I had from yesterday was of me cleaning up. So, when I thought I was stopping the recording, that was when it started. I’m human, so don’t judge lol. I will film another one and insert it as soon as I can. For now though, I wanted to make sure that I fulfilled my promise on social media from earlier this week to provide instructions on how to do a smokey eye.

Browns-Neutrals

Step 1: You start out with a light shade. You can do this with pretty much any eye shadow that you have, whether it be from a palette, loose pigment, cream shadow, etc. It honestly doesn’t matter what kind of shadow you’re using, it will all do the same thing just with different variations in look. This light shade should be something like beige, white, off white, or super light colors that go with the look you’re creating. Use personal preference to determine if you want something shimmer or matte – personally I go glitter all day every day! You will take whatever you have chosen for step one, and apply it directly under your brow to highlight and all over that upper part of your lid. It will be more concentrated right under the brow, and then you just blend it downward. This shade will also be applied in the inner corner of your eye, and the inner half section of your eye lid. In the photo you see to your right, I am using the second shade on the palette for this smokey eye look in neutral browns.

Step 2: This will be a medium shade. Again, you can choose the type of shadow and the Blacks-Silvers
color palette. This shade will be similar to the first shade, but a few tones darker. This part is a bit easier because the application area is far smaller. With this shade, you pretty much just need to continue where you left off with step one. You will apply the second shade to the outer area of your lid right up to the middle, which is where it will meet the lighter shade from step one. Just go over that connecting area with little swiping motions to blend it in a bit. I usually fan this second color up a little bit into the crease as well to provide a base, but that is not necessary because you will be covering it up anyway. To the right you will see me demonstrating palette 2, which is a palette that comes with shades of black, grey, and silver. Here you see me using the second shade down again for the highlighting of step one, and the fourth shade down for this second step. You can see that it is just a couple of shades darker than the highlighting color that I used, and again this one was in shimmer.

Pinks-Purples

Step 3: This is where you will be creating the smokey part of your smokey eye. You will choose a darker color for this step, and you can choose to go really dark or stay relatively toned down depending on your personal preference. For this look I was going for purples, so I chose to opt out of the black as the darkest shade for the crease and go for the second darkest, which was a royal purple. For the first step of this look I used the fourth shade down to highlight, and then the fifth shade for step two. The sixth shade was then applied as a line from the outside corner of my eye heading toward my eyebrow, but you stop about halfway there. You then shade in that v area in the outer corner of your eye, and when you don’t have a lot of product left on your brush, you fan it up and around in that crease of your eye lid. Just go over that area a few times to blend it together, and if necessary you can add a tiny amount of product to the brush to make sure that it actually is visible. If you want, you can also apply this darker shade to the lower lash line, but that comes down to personal preference.

So there ya go ladies! This is how I create super simple smokey-eye looks with different color palettes on a daily basis. The products that were used in these demos are all Younique Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palettes, but you can replicate the same kind of looks with pretty much any palettes that you have on hand! It is quick and easy once you get the hang of it, so give it a try with whatever products you have! If you’re really brave, you can even send in your attempts to jessica@fitnessbeautytravel.com. I would love to hear about your experience and see how you made out with my tip!

Thanks for reading ladies, I hope you found this useful!

For those of you that don’t recognize her or know who I am talking about, Maeghan has been with me pretty much from the beginning. She attended my very first Younique opportunity event, and joined my team that very night.

Since then, she has grown to be the biggest rock star on my team thus far. She hit her fast start (which is something even I failed to do!!) and she worked her way up to Pink status with me. We’ve done events together, and hung out together. We’ve even chatted about life and her relationship goals before, and I cannot even say how freaking excited I am that she is finally getting her wish and marrying the man of her dreams this summer!!

Congratulations Maeghan and Chris, I am so happy for you both.

Happy Birthday girl, I hope you have a wonderful day <3

3 Reasons to get involved with Younique this Month

I have had a multitude of conversations with fabulous ladies that have expressed interest in joining the Younique family in the time that I have been with the company. I have a LOT of on-the-fencers in our Information group on Facebook, so I wanted to explain a few reasons why this month right here (January 2016) is the PERFECT time for you to be getting involved with Younique. Maybe you’re one of the people I’ve spoken to in the past, or maybe you’re totally new to the idea. Regardless, this is some information that you need to have in your back pocket to be able to make that decision that could potentially change your life.

Back to the topic of on-the-fencers. It honestly kills me to see ladies rocking makeup looks in their selfies, getting tons of likes and comments from their friends, and not making money in the process. The cycle is pretty similar in a lot of these cases, so I am going to lay it out for you and I want you to be honest with yourself as to whether or not this is YOU:

Scenario 1: The initial conversation about the company and what it is like as a presenter occurs. There is interest, but you want time to think about it. You then fall off the face of the earth. I reach out a few more times, and you ignore my messages but continue to watch my posts. Sound familiar? If so, STOP! Stop watching me grow and build my business on the sidelines, and just muster up the courage to take that leap and do it with me. You’re about to learn why it is in your best interest to do it NOW.

Scenario 2: This one begins in the same way, only it ends with you saying that you will sign up as SOON as you get paid. You may even provide an exact date for when you plan to join. That day comes and goes, and you don’t take that leap. I reach out a few more times and get told the exact same thing with new dates. Those dates come and go too. Ironically, I will see photos of a new tattoo, people partying every weekend, people throwing their money away on this or that. I get it, people like to have tattoos, nice things, to party and let loose, etc. However, wouldn’t it be so much better if you had MORE money to buy and do all of those things? Instead of buying those non-essential things you could be setting aside that money to invest in yourself and a business that can then make you the money you need to invest in the things that you WANT for years to come!

Okay, so now it is time to get down to the nitty-gritty. Why is it so crucial to get involved this month, and what sets it apart from all of the other months of the year?

3 Reasons to get Involved with Younique this Month:

People are getting back on track after the holidays: December can be a really rough month for sales because people are spending all of their money on Christmas gifts and holiday necessities. January is hit or miss because some people have Christmas money they want to spend on makeup, but most people have spent all of their money on holiday stuff in December that it takes them most of January to get caught up. February is when sales can go back up for us! When you get started this month, it allows you to work on setting yourself up for an awesome month in a7f0809f7eff5bbd641fdc5d93e6529bFebruary. Just think – what to women like? A LOT of women like makeup. What holiday is coming up in February? VALENTINE’S DAY!! This is a HUGE opportunity for us to network and make connections with the men in our lives that have to consider gifts for their significant other. Plus, the ladies in our lives may want to splurge on themselves to look great for date night. Since the holiday is just 2 weeks into the month, it is important to make those connections in advance so that the orders arrive in time for the holiday!

We launch in a new market February 1st (FRANCE): Yes, you read that correctly. Younique launches in France next month!! This is honestly SO exciting for me, because for once I actually have a slight advantage in a launch haha! I speak french, so this will allow me to communicate effectively with people in France about the opportunity and be genuine. If you speak french and you love makeup, you NEED to be getting on board prior to this launch. Even if you don’t speak french, it is still a huge opportunity because a lot of french-speaking people can understand English. It is soooo important to establish yourself within the company prior to the launch so that you can work on making those connections 12345788_1716540425242166_1683075681_nwith potential customers and potential Younique presenters in France. You may not know this, but France is actually a huge fashion, style, and cosmetics industry. This means that there will be a HUGE amount of people over there that will be dying to join your team and become a part of this awesome company, or even just to try out the products. If you make connections with these people in advance, you will set yourself up for a killer month. Previous launches like this have allowed presenters the opportunity to rank advance in a single day, sometimes multiple times, simply from establishing connections with people prior to that launch. As I am sure you know, rank advancements mean MORE MONEY.

Our trip incentive points restart in February: So you may or may not know this, but every year Younique offers incentives for the presenters. You have opportunities all throughout the year to rack up points that can later be redeemed for some awesome rewards. Now you can choose to use them on the smaller prizes, OR you can work your A$$ off and work to 1917146_10153797161498744_583202665854512751_ngenerate enough points to earn yourself a spot on the cruise ship. I want to be on that cruise next year, and I am more than willing to work with you to help you earn your ticket so that you can be there right alongside me! If you get started in the month of January it allows you to get yourself trained up, fired up, and ready to hit the ground running February 1st. This way you are not missing any opportunities to collect points, and you don’t end up joining several months down the road and being behind on point collection.

So there you have it. 3 pretty freakin’ powerful reasons why it is in your best interest to get OFF of the fence and get involved with Younique RIGHT NOW. If you’ve been watching posts of Younique presenters and thinking about joining the company, stop thinking and just dive in. Things that are right and that important potentially life-changing decisions are always scary – but you rarely regret having the courage to do it once you do. Seriously though, in this case you really have NOTHING to lose. You will be getting a presenter’s kit full of awesome makeup at HUGE savings, so the worst case scenario here is that you don’t sell anything and you just end up with a kit full of epic makeup to use and love. There are no penalties or fees for quitting or failing to sell!

If you are willing to learn how to succeed in this industry I have no doubt in my mind that you WILL succeed. Why? Because I am going to help you do it. My team has been growing and improving with every passing month. I just had another lady join me this week, and already she has sold over $100 in product. I had a lady join me last month and she ALREADY got her first promotion and is well on her way to hit fast start and get a ton of Younique cash to redeem on her own purchases! You are never alone on our team. I recently invested quite a bit of money into a professional business development training program, and I fully intend to share the knowledge that I gain through that program with the ladies on my team to help them grow as well. Additionally, I have compiled notes from many webinars, podcasts, etc that I have utilized to help me learn the art of network marketing. Those are all available to the ladies on my team through my Team Training Resources section of the site. I want YOU to be successful too, not just me. We are a team, after all.

If you are ready to conquer your fear and dive in, I would LOVE for you to join my team and be a part of this amazing Younique family.

Thanks for reading ladies!
