Introducing Amanda LeBleu
Amanda is another amazing entrepreneur I met thru Periscope. Her cheerful personality and energy jumped off the screen. When you met her you are graced with a fun, funny warm person who you know you would have a blast with. She is the type that could make anything fun! She has a wonderful, positive attitude and I feel the world is a brighter happier place after spending time with her. I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with her.
- What is your Direct Sales Business? What type of products do they sell?
Younique Makeup & Skincare
- How did you get involved in your Direct Sales Business and why?
My cousin started selling their products. Once I tried them I was hooked! I have been using their products for almost 2 years. I was so intrigued by the spirit of the company and the presenters. Of course the initial appeal was the product discount but since then it’s evolved into so much more.

- What is your favorite product and why?
This is a tough one! Of course I love the 3D Fiber Mascara but I also love the makeup removal cloths. I have to confess, I’m awful at washing my face at night. This makes it so easy and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I have to also mention our touch liquid foundation. It’s not heavy or streaky, provides amazing coverage and is formulated for oily skin (which is what I have)!
- What would you say to people who think Direct Sales are a scam?
I love what I do, have tremendous support from people in my company, and I’ve learned so much in a short time already! People also say sororities are bad or you pay for your friends. I didn’t let those comments affect my decision to join and as a result I met amazing women which includes my best friends for over 10 years! I’d encourage you to seek out your own truth and do what’s best for yourself!
- Do you think it is important for a woman to have a side income?
Personally I think it’s a great idea! I would encourage everyone to go after what’s important to them, even if it’s hard or makes you uncomfortable! That’s how we grow!
- What is the biggest struggle you have had with your business? How have you overcome it?
For me it’s both an outside and internal struggle. There is a stigma of direct sales that you are immediately met with regardless if you know the person or not. The idea that we only see you as currency and not a person or friend. The internal struggle is the fear I illustrate the stigma. That my true intentions are not seen which is to truly help people.
Because I grew up in a church that focused in serving others I learned from an early age how important it is to be kind and support each other. That’s what I hope to achieve and what I strive for through my business! When I feel myself struggle I remind myself to not take things personal and surround myself with other supportive people. We help boast each other up and remind each other to keep moving forward.
- What have you learned about yourself through your business?
That is imperfection is ok. To give yourself grace when you mess up or having a tough day! That there are so many inspiring people I can learn from! That I have a voice and story to share!
- What opportunity would you have not had if not for your business?
I wouldn’t have met other fantastic business owners! It’s opened my eyes to how many other people are being brave and making a name for themselves! It inspires me to keep pushing through on the hard days.
- How does your business align with your values and the person you are?
Younique’s mission statement is to uplift, empower and inspire women! I echo how important these words are!
