I never realized that Scentsy could fast becoming the next big thing to Nintendo and Wii. Scentsy is quickly making our home the "Scentsy house instead of the "Kool Aid" house. In fact, instead of the "Kool Aid" Mom," my name is quickly becoming the "Scentsy Lady."
When I pick my daughter up from school, I over hear the other kids tell their friends "that's the Scentsy Lady." Also, I have many kids on a daily basis approach me and tell me how much they love Scentsy.
When the neighbor kids come over, their attention always turns to Scentsy. I see them sitting around the table smelling my Scentsy Testers, putting them into piles of which one's they like, sort of like and don't like. Instead of watching TV I see them sitting on the couch browsing my latest Scentsy catalog and commenting on which Scentsy Warmers they like best. Best of all, I over hear them deciding which warmer and scents they want to give to their friends, family and teachers for Chrismas gifts.
Also, when I am need of a little help with my Scentsy business, such as labeling catalogs or products, I find that bribing the kids with Scentsy products works much better than cash. They can't wait to chip in and go home with a FREE Scentsy Car Candle or Scentsy Bar.
My daughter who is surrounding by Scentsy on a daily basis, just doesn't seem to understand her friends fascination with Scentsy but she eventually joins in on sampling and commenting on her favorite scents too. In fact, she is still struggling with the fact the Strawberry Sweetie has been discontinued.
When they grow up and begin their journey into those high school years, my hopes are that they will consider Scentsy their positive addiction of choice instead of the other negative influences they will be subjected to. I also hope they won't be too cool to continue calling me the "Scentsy Lady" and will still want to hang out at the "Scentsy House." These are titles I consider an honor and hope to carry with me for many years to come.
