Claire Danielle Cowan has been a Younique Rep since the company first launched in the UK. I interviewed her nearly 18 months ago when she had just been presented with a giant novelty sized cheque for $10,000 but did the Multi Level Marketing dream continue after that or did it vanish into thin air.
It’s been 18 months since we last spoke and you had just been given a giant cheque for $10,000 from Younique! What’s happened in the time since?
It’s been a whirlwind ! I still pinch myself everyday . We now have a team of over 24,000 women and a few men. Not only my life has changed but I’m now seeing lots of lives change . From people being able to leave their full time employed jobs to be able to stay at home with their kids , new houses , new cars , holidays , our team are achieving great things . The growth is incredible , Younique just keeps going from strength to strength.
For me it’s not about what I earn . It’s about the freedom I now have.
Every MLM seems to claim that it is the next ‘big thing’ but what is it that you think has made Younique connect so well with the female population?
Youniques mission is to Uplift , empower and validate people. This is exactly what we do. We don’t just sell incredible products. We give women (and men!) confidence, hope, and belief in themselves.
We teach them how to become the very best version of themselves and to work on their mindset. When they get to that point – it’s then they see their business really take off . It’s all about confidence.
Have you found any negative backlash at all in the MLM world? Perhaps those jealous of how well you are doing?
If there has been any , I don’t take an interest in it . I have no time for negativity in my life.
How have you family and friends been with you regarding your new found wealth?
Everyone has been very supportive . And those who haven’t been are no longer a part of my life . The first main lesson I learned was cut out any negativity around me in order to live a positive happy life
How do you feel about claims that the UK market for Younique is actually over saturated?
There’s around 64 million people in the UK. We have approximately 50,000 presenters, plus not all of these presenters are active. So the numbers speak for themselves, over saturated we most definitely are not.
I speak to people everyday who have not even heard of Younique. We are just getting started . Also bear in mind that we are a social media based business which means we are not limited to where we can sell to / sponsor from. Currently we are open in the UK , North America, Canada , Australia , New Zealand , Germany , Mexico , France and soon to be Spain.
What sort of opportunities have you been able to have since you joined Younique that you NEVER thought you would be able to do?
I was able to quit my full time job last October. Something I never thought would be possible.
I’m now at home to see my son off to school and here when he comes home.
Travel was also one of my main objectives. I’ve been able to travel a lot ! Including Utah 3 times, Poland, Iceland, Spain, Thailand, Germany, Miami, Jamaica, France.
This month alone I’ve been to Thailand on a 2 week family holiday, Spain for 3 days as a treat for my leaders and as I write this I’m sat on a plane on my way to Las Vegas to The Most Powerful Women in Network Marketing Event.
I’ve traveled more in the last 18 months than I had in my whole life previously !
The future looks very bright. I have lots of plans.
