That time I started a business



In amongst many doctor appointments, med changes (aren’t they a bitch?!) and trying to find the balance that will get me on the right track to a healthy mental state, I have decided to jump on board and start my own little business as a Younique Independent Presenter.

Now, I know how crazy that sounds, especially considering all the overwhelm I’ve been talking about. But, hear me out.

I ‘attended’ a facebook party. It was so different to anything I’d been involved with before and when the presenter mentioned she was looking to add to her team, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So, I used the last of my tattoo money to purchase the new presenter kit and told James I would make it back or not get anymore tattoos.


I did have a freak out moment, wondering what I was thinking but, as I’ve learned about the products I have received, connected with my upline, hit a few of my goals and developed some strategies I am starting to think I might have known what I was doing after all.

For me, it’s not about money (although, I would like to be able to buy James a birthday present where he can’t see where and how much and figure out what it is!). It’s not even about make up (although, I am partial to fabulous lashes). It’s about giving myself an external focus, goals which are mine and achievable but my whole family life doesn’t ride on it. If that makes sense. It’s already been an amazing confidence booster, which has been greatly needed. Feeling useless had become a norm for me and finding a way to remind myself of my worth has been invaluable.


I feel excited about the prospects and to see where I can go with this. I’m thrilled about the relationships that are forming, doing things that ease that loneliness is very important to me at the moment and it’s not too draining as it’s all online.

Tomorrow, I’m officially launching through a facebook based party. I’m excited. I’m scared.


I’m ready to take this journey where ever it leads. Possibly to some type of reality show because I keep throwing the word ‘journey’ around.

I would love it if you guys would like my page and if you’d like to join in on my launch party I would so love your support. It will run for a couple of days and everyone is free to pop in and out of the group as they please, there’s no expectations, hopefully just some fun, info and a massive boost for me. Feel free to add yourself to the group!

That’s where I’m at. Doing something a little crazy.
What have you done for yourself lately?

  1. Wow, congrats on taking the plunge! I understand that feeling of uselessness all too well. I wish you all the best in your ventures!

    • Thank you Tegan!

  2. I have never heard of Younique, but if it makes you happy, go for it! We all need something. I love how party plan has evolved over the years, and these days you can attend a virtual party on Facebook or the like!

    • Thanks Janet! I am thrilled to have found that party plans can now be operated online as I am not anywhere near being able to do face-to-face! It’s awesome.

  3. I’m afraid I don’t wear makeup at all but will pop over and have a look at your page!

    Good luck with the new venture!

    • Thanks Deborah! We also do skin care 😉

  4. All the best with your new business launch! Sounds exciting!

    • Thank you Ingrid! It was all very exciting and now I need to keep the momentum up!

  5. So proud of you – however I must warn you I don’t wear make-up hardly at all – but I do support awesome people like you doing such things! GO GIRL!

    • Thanks Em! I so appreciate your support! And, I just wanted to call you sweet cheeks, so I am just going to run with it, haha!

  6. Congratulations on taking the plunge! I love the Younique products (even though I don’t get to wear makeup much). I hope you get everything you want from it.

    • Thanks for popping by Mel. I am loving the products and it’s definitely encouraging me to wear more make up (I was a none/bb cream gal before).

  7. i’m so glad you have found something for you.
    Sorry I haven’t been around the party much; it’s been such a busy few weeks in my neck of the woods.

    • Thanks Jess! Absolutely no problem at all, I know life is so busy for you!
