Team Delashious Divas is now 22 ladies strong!
Today is the first day that I have "blogged" in such a long time! - so a big massive "hello" to all those who missed me, & to all those who have just tuned in, then where the heck have you been? ;)
well as you have probably noticed, I have been rather AWOL since around September time - my bad! anyways, I am back now!! & I have so much to tell you! seriously, my life is going amazing at the moment, I finally feel like I am on the correct track & nothing & no-one can ruin this amazing journey for me! so, I best start from the beginning hadn't I? I hope you're ready for a long read?
On July 25th, 2015 I took a leap of faith & I joined a company called Younique.. I am not going to lie, I didn't know anything about it, all I knew is that one of my very close friends - now my Younique sponsor, was doing it & it looked fun! I was never really into "makeup" & all that jazz before Younique, I started off by simply just observing & watching my friend after she joined, I joined her "VIP" page, played along with a few of her raffles & before I knew it, I was hooked on Younique, the first thing I would do when I logged onto Facebook everyday would be to check her page! like I say, I wasnt a makeup kinda girl, but I slowly found myself "wanting" the products! don't get me wrong I was skeptical, & part of me kept thinking, "surely this cant be as good as it looks, can it?" & after a couple more weeks of "watching" I spoke to my friend about it & we had a long chat & she told me to have a good think... well, I couldn't stop thinking about it, & well surely that was a sign wasn't it? so then I just came to the conclusion of, you know what, "sod it" & I joined up... I mean what exactly did I have to lose? if it didn't work out, then I had still bagged myself a ton of Younique make up that I could keep! (bonus)
so after I had gone through all the sign up process, I then began my launch party... & as overwhelming & daunting as it was, I jumped in head first & did the best that I could, & thinking back now, to say I knew next to NOTHING about the company, the make up or anything, I did pretty damn good with my launch party... I ran my party for 5 days, had all my family & friends join in & when the party finished I had £385 in orders to put in! AMAZING RIGHT!!! this of course put me on a massive buzz & I couldn't wait to place my very first order, then two weeks after I joined up, my Younique presenters kit arrived, & things started to feel a little more "real" for me, I started playing with the make up & posting "selfies" all over my Facebook! I was loving it... at the end of August I qualified as a White Status presenter, & then started working towards my next goal, Yellow Status! but a few weeks into September, I hit a low with my moods (stupid manic depression) & it completely affected everything, I wasn't getting any sales & people just weren't interested in signing up with me... so then I started to think, well was my first order just a fluke? so I had a chat with my sponsor & I also had a chat with a few other "Uplines" & I was told to get some self development done... watch videos, read ect. so I did, I spent a whole week watching inspirational & mindset videos, which in turn improved my mood & made me feel more positive about how I needed to improve the way I worked my business! then on 30th September (my birthday) I hit Yellow Status presenter, & after that, things got even better, in October I got my first 3 teamies, which then qualified me for a bonus called Fast Start, by this point my self esteem & positivity about my business was now flowing through my veins faster than blood!
in November I had more people join my team & then something incredible happened, I hit a DOUBLE PROMOTION! I not only hit Pink Status, I also smashed straight through Blue Status too! in just 5 months I had gone from the bottom of the company, to over half way to the top & I cannot tell you how AMAZING that made me feel. I am always telling my team to fight through the rough patches because if you work your business everyday, good things WILL come, you just have to have patients & keep that positivity flowing! nobody else can work your business but you, so if you want it, you have to go out & GET IT!
We are now in February & I am absolutely LOVING where I am in my life, my business is blooming everyday & its all because of MY hard work, I haven't expected ANYONE to do it for me, I have done it all myself! everyday I encourage my team to do the same & because of that we are thriving as a team & soon we will become a Green Status Elite team.. I cannot wait for that day - I will definitely cry!
In May I am attending my very first Younique event, it is the very first UK training event. I will be travelling down to Telford in Shropshire, to attend what is going to be one of the BIGGEST training events, & I am so excited. I am so excited to meet my team, to meet all of the ladies that have helped to keep me up when all I wanted to do was fall, & most importantly, I am super excited to get some new skills on how to run my business! for now I am a Blue Status presenter, but watch this space, by May I WILL be a Green Elite presenter & I WILL be attending TWO events.
before I sign off, I would just like to thank my amazing sponsor Lauren Sherreard for believing in me, & for peaking my interest & supporting me every step of the way on this amazing adventure because it truly has changed my life, it has changed me completely & I am so proud to be who I am today. I am a better person, a better wife & a better mum for it.
who would have thought that all it took to get me out of my depressive state, was a new adventure & some make up!
