Motives and Me Program for Teens

Teens under 18 years of age can now turn their love of makeup into cash!

The Motives & Me program is perfect for teens that are looking to earn the cash they want, while having fun selling one of the hottest makeup lines in the country. It gives teenagers the opportunity to run their own business while being mentored and coached by a Motives Customer Manager. Customer Managers sign up a teen associate and assign the teen their own Motives® mini‐website.  The young entrepreneur can then refer customers to this website to purchase Motives products. With each sale the Motives Customer Manager will give the retail profit from that sale to the teenager.

  1. On your websites it states that a teen the age 18 and under can do your cosmetic sales and when you get towards the end of reading on how you can start the sales it says you have to be 14-18 years old. You are sending mix messages on which age you can be to sale these products.

    Thank You
