Amber and I have been friends for several years. We spent part of our careers together in a very fast paced and stressful environment where we turned to each other to keep each other going. But this wasn’t a sustainable routine that was building the lives of our dreams. Many nights we would speak and share how drained we felt from the very long days. 

A year ago, Amber discovered she was pregnant with two beautiful, identical twin girls. This was her aha moment in life. She took the road to becoming a stay-at-home wife and mother. Now, I’ve known Amber for a bit, and let me tell you, she is a driver and a go-getter and I am absolutely am inspired by her. She is an amazing mother, wife, friend, and an all around beautiful person. We sat and spoke of her desires to find something she could do that would give her the flexibility of staying home but also something that she felt was of her own. Amber had started using Younique Beauty Products and she spoke so highly of them, it was as this had come to her at the perfect moment and place. It was such a natural process watching her start and build her business with Younique. I was really excited when I got the opportunity to chat with her about her success. (And bonus she shared some awesome Make-Up looks with us!)

Me: What are your favorite things about being an entrepreneur and running your own business? 

Amber: My favorite thing is being able to work from where I want and when I want, having the freedom to put my family first.

Me: What makes you so passionate about what you do? 

Amber: I love the products myself! I would not sell something I didn’t try, use and did not love. The products are naturally based, hypoallergenic, and are not tested on animals. Those are huge deals! Also, there’s Younique Foundation-a retreat for underage, sexually abused woman. The cause itself inspires me. With each purchase you are not just getting amazing makeup and skincare products, but you have the ability to change lives. Whether it’s a customer helping them feel more confident or someone who needs to get back on their feet.

Me: What was your biggest fear or challenge when you were getting started?

Amber: Failure! Not being good at it. I have never been the most outspoken or most forward person. I do not like having all eyes on me.

Me: But you’re doing awesome! I absolutely adore how you market your business and how you engage with everyone. You also always thank every customer every time they make a purchase and that is the sweetest, amazing customer service!

Me: And for a fun one, how did you celebrate your first business win? 

Amber: Dinner was on me! My treat since my husband is the bread winner in the family on regular basis.
