How would you describe yourself?
I am a mother of 2 sons who loves this beautiful life I’ve been given. I am a hard worker and enjoy challenge. I am positive and believe there is beauty in everything.
How long have you been involved in your business?
Since October 2017. Although Younique is a new business for me, I have been a caregiver for 18 years; therefore, Younique has allowed me to help people feel better, but in a different kind of way!
What is your why?
My why is that Younique is based on validating, empowering, and uplifting women. The products are of quality production. I began as a consumer, benefitted and loved the products so much, and decided to share what I consider to be the premier skin care and makeup line available.
Tell us a little about your family.
I am engaged. I have 2 grown sons, both in college. I have many siblings. I have many friends who are, most definitely, family, as well.
How do you prioritize family and your business?
My family comes before all else. My business allows me to have more time with my family.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself working full time with Younique. I, also, see myself with land and a home on water and married (MAYBE a grandchild!).
What keeps you motivated?
Life! Being alive! Laughter, hugs, Sunday dinners, remembering family and friends that made life great by sharing themselves with me, feeling sunshine on my face, splashing in puddles when it rains; I can’t think of one thing that wouldn’t motivate me!
Biggest life lesson learned?
To let go. Enjoy every moment.
Biggest lesson you’ve learned in business?
Thoughts become things.
What is your secret to success?
That I am a success.
All entrepreneurs encounter bad days. How do you handle yours?
I re-focus. I meditate. I spend time with my fiancé and children. I remind myself, there are always bad days, but once gone, they are gone. Poof! Moving right along…
What was your sweetest success story?
I believe my sweetest success story has yet to come.
How do you relax?
What are your most popular products?
Moodstruck Palette 1, 3D Fiber Lashes
What are your favorite business tools? What business apps, products and tools do you use daily to run your business/life efficiently? What could you not function without?
I use my phone all the time for my business, in a myriad of ways. Whether it is talking to contacts, posting to social media, or making new contacts, my phone is, almost always, involved. I, also, use Excel spreadsheets and Microsoft Word, often, via my laptop.
Any advice you have for other women who want to start their own business?
The top advice I would give anyone who is interested in starting their own business is to find what they love. Loving and believing in products or services you wish to market is a major source of success. One needs persistence and belief in oneself.
