Description: This passage is mainly focused on answering some of the questions about being a LipSense distributor as well as what the difference is between this direct sale and others.
Today I did a training for a group of 20,000 girls today, I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately which makes sense because I’ve been focusing on all of the fun stuff with LipSense a lot more lately and I realized it had been more than a year since I had answered any questions.
I always assumed that it’s obvious what I do and everybody’s already heard about it and they already know about my magical unicorn lipstick, my makeup and all of that and what I spend my life doing but when I messaged with a friend about something unrelated, I find out that they have no idea about it.
Back in April of 2016, I found this lipstick. I didn’t like lipstick because I’m a klutz and it would smeared across my face, or it would be on my teeth, it would get everywhere. But after I found this lipstick, I loved it, it makes me feel pretty and it seems very superficial and it can make a big difference for somebody. I’m still doing that, if you want LipSense, I can hook you up.
The second question I get comes from people who have watched me over the last little, they’ve heard me say it’s much different than other stuff because they know that I had tried other companies before and this is different.
Because first, it’s low investment, I personally invested nothing, no money has ever gone into my LipSense business from my personal account; two is low risk because you can get your money back plus I make sure that my clients are not into debt.
The second reason is that there’s no mandatory kit with a lot of stuff, when you sign up, you can buy what you want, you don’t have to get a big kit and especially if it’s of cosmetics things that’s like pre-picked out stuff, and I help all my people strategize, work the whole system and get all set up with what they need and not with their own money
The third reason is that there’s no monthly auto-ship which means it can also be a discount if you love LipSense. There are people that love lip and then they want to sign up for the discount, but they thought that they have done that before and it didn’t save any money because they had to place an order every month and it was hemorrhaging money to save money.
But this is different, first of all, there’s no monthly auto-ship, you have six months to place a two hundred dollar retail order to stay active to sell, but the reason that the no auto-ship / no required monthly order is so different is because when you do decide to take the plunge and sign up for like a multi-level marketing, there’s this immediate pressure, we need to sell enough to make it worth placing next month’s order.
I don’t want commission off your debt, I want you to do so awesome that you have to order which is why I help you build your business, so without monthly auto-ship, you’re not going to be hemorrhaging money every month either to save money on makeup you love and you’re not going to be under the gun and having that horrible pressure to have to do right away just so you can place the next month’s order.
The other way that it’s different is that this is not direct sales or an MLM, it is the first time I’ve ever seen either an actual true hybrid of both. So direct sales think of people selling satellite service in Walmart or Costco, phone service, they come to your door they want to sell you a water filter, that is direct sells and it’s like most pure form, they are directly selling to the customer and they make a profit off of their sales, but they’re not trying to sign you up, they don’t want you to join their team, they want to sell you something so that they make the retail profit.
With all of the products I make 50% off of everything I sell, for instance, last year I happened to sell about $35,000 worth of it personally and then all together is my team, we hustled and we sold over a million dollars worth of it, I am sixteen thousand dollars away from hitting two million dollars all together with my team.
So you can earn a great income if you happen to be great at selling the product and then you make 50% product profit. I’ve got girls that are not into signing people up, but they love LipSense, they do Facebook parties and they do home demos, they get to leave their house and their kids once a week and go hang out with girls to do wine tasting, LipSense parties and they make 50%. There’s one girl she makes $4,000 a month in sales, she’s making two grand a month doing, she’s working hard but she loves it, it’s fun. So that’s the direct sales.
And on the multi-level marketing, you can help people do what you’re doing, you can have personal use distributors and then you make commission off of what they buy. The thing is when people are trying to recruit you to an MLM, I’ll show you this plan and you just see dollar signs, you’re going to think that you will make so much money doing that because you only have to sign up three people and that’s all you have to do.
It’s the most generously paying comp plan I’ve ever seen in my life, I’m not allowed to tell you facts and share my story because I could get in big trouble, but I can say that I worked hard and have felt more than adequately compensated. I have earned a reimbursed car, Jason and I have gone to Cabo, getting ready to go to Costa Rica.
The other thing is that you can do it your way, I don’t run my business like a traditional network marketing, I have the brain, I’m an entrepreneur, so I run my business and I am building things for my team and that’s how I do it.
I’ve got girlfriends who love the home party, other girls that like to go out to vendor events and they travel, they sell tons of the product, other girls they have a life where they are doing it through the internet. I’ve never seen a company that gives you so much flexibility, there are parameters but they are very generous and clear.
Here is the last answer to the second question, there’s no actual competition for our product. So things that I’ve sold before whether it’s health related or food-related or like essential oils or anything like that, it always had direct competition. But for this lipstick, there is no other lipsticks that can stay on like that and doesn’t dry out your lips, it makes your lips softer and healthier.
And then we have all the other cosmetics too, my foundation is waterproof, there is nothing out there does that, so there is no direct competition and it’s patented so we’re good. Next question is that is it for real for anybody?
They want to know that because they’ve done MLMs before where it looked from the outside that they were successful but they knew they weren’t actually making any money. I had that in other companies that had ranks and it looked like I was successful and in order to try to make it enticing to other people but I wasn’t making any money, I was working hard.
But with this, you can make 50% of what you sell, the other day in front of witnesses at Life Group in Starbucks, a girl that worked there stopped me and she came out from around the corner to ask if she could buy the lip stick out of my purse. So people chase you down to buy it from you, you do not have to chase people which is very refreshing.
For retail wise, there’s a lot of money, then for the team commission, everybody makes a different amount of money, there’s no guarantees but people make real money, when I say make real money, it’s on all different scales and then there are people that have doubled or replace their income, it can happen a lot faster than you plan, but it all depends.
The next question is how much money and time does it take? First of all, I didn’t invest any money at all, I didn’t plan on starting a business, I was hustling to get free lipstick because I don’t like to pay for things if I can get them for free, so I had a party and it was so big that it paid for everything for me to get started, I teach people how to do that.
How much time does it take? It depends on if you become addicted to the awesomeness or not. There are people who enjoy being the Avon lady, when you need Avon, you can call her. And there are people that they enjoy selling the LipSense. Then there are people like me who have more trouble stopping myself working than I do making myself work because I love what I do and I have to be careful and not to overdo it. So it just depends on what you want to do.
There are not so many people selling it, there are people that are talking that they have friends around who are selling the LipSense, but comparing to others, it is a small amount. I go outside of my door every day and get asked about this.
Some people are thinking that they couldn’t sell it because they have friends who sell it and they couldn’t decide who to sign up under, but the truth is that everybody’s naturally gravitate to the people that are closed to, it’s normal.
Now if you’re looking at this and you see dollar signs, you think that sounds good and you need something to like call your own, you want to start a business and learn to make money, that’s the one. I wouldn’t pick somebody random to sign up under or sign up under a friend who does it once in a while, sign up with the person that’s going to give you the best business start.
The last question is that do you like it? I have a lot of fun. It would be downplaying if I say that I make money playing with makeup, but that is definitely an element to it. I am studying and sharpening up my makeup artist skills, I’m going to be going and getting certified and then I’m looking at getting the training in all kinds of different things not because I want to go be a professional makeup artist because I love it. There is a creative and artistic streak in me and this is one medium that I happen to love.
I never feel slimy or I’m spamming people and in fact I had people tell me that I am the first of their friends to do something like this and to get to this level and they didn’t hide that. I have people come and ask me to help their friend out and talk to them because maybe they want to get going in a different company and they want some tips on how to be successful and not like drive everybody away, so I take that as a great compliment.
I like to help coach people in other companies too, so having been successful with this, a lot of people ask for tips and tricks with the industry in general. I dreamed of writing a book and being able to speak and teach an impact women’s lives, that’s what I wanted to do.
What’s amazing and one of the reasons that I love this is right now, with having grown a team, I’ve got almost 600 girls in my team and then I do trainings throughout the company, I’m actually a Texas state leader which is like a huge honor.
I am doing all those because this is funding different people’s dreams. A lot of people dream of things that provide money for. Now I did dream of being an MLM rockstar, so this is legitimately part of my dream and it does so much more than that, but this isn’t the dream for everybody.
But I get to be a part of all those other people’s dreams, getting funded, so I like what I do whether it’s selling live since I love color matching, a lot of doing parties I love talking to girls, I love connecting, I love helping see other people’s businesses take off and start in that excitement and there’s triumphs, I love coaching people through the the struggles and the low points. I work hard but it feels more like a hobby. Most of the time, I’m like a nerdy professional athlete, they work hard but like they’re doing what they love, so it’s the same for me.
If you are watching this, it has been over a year since I shared about it in this particular way and if you want to know what this is, you can message me, comment and I will message you, you can go to my website, I have books and inspiration things, so you can see all the things.
Let me know if you need help choosing colors, remember there are much more than lipstick, if you want to try it for free, I have five lipstick packs which is a starter collection of the color remover and a gloss, 5 skincare sleepover packs and 5 a makeup packs, so if you want to try the stuff for free, you book a party with me and I’m going to send you your choice of one of those three packs so that you get the brand-new stuff.
After the party, you can either buy that stuff with your discount or end up signing up, you can send replacements back to me, there’s only five of each of those though which means it is for the first 15 people that want to book a party with me.
To do that, you get to take your pick, it’s first come first serve, so if you want a skincare pack, you’d better get with me quickly. If you’re interested in the business stuff, message me, I will talk to you, I don’t harass you. I’ve got some girls who don’t want to start with signing up, it was Okay, I don’t want to chase you down, you can take your time, when the time is right, we will cooperate.
