Who needs Video Games when you Have Scentsy?

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.

Scentsy Contribute 2009

I am so inspired by Scentsy's new program. Scentsy is giving us the opportunity to help our fellow businesses in our local communities and make a real difference in this slow economy. As Orville & Heidi Thompson (owners of Scentsy) said "We have been blessed with Scentsy and want to give back. We are asking you and anyone else that would like to make a difference to give back too." Your donation can make all the difference.

The business I chose to pledge is the Beehive Tea Room. I have known the owner of the Beehive Tea Room, Lisa Brady for years. I have watched her share her artistic talent with the public through her floral arrangements to designing movie sets. The movie business was quite demanding of her time. So, being a single parent she took a big leap, and paycut, and decided to use her talent to open up her own business. This would allow her to spend more time with her daughter.
Lisa's Tea Room is a like a step back in time. You feel like you have entered a Tea Room in Savannah back in the 40's. It gives locals a classy, yet laid back place to socialize, have a party, or to simply hangout and escape from the day to day grind. Lisa's sacifices, hardwork and touch of class she has brought to Salt Lake, I feel, makes her a well deserved recipient of the Scentsy "Contribute 2009" program.

Scentsy September Warmer of the Month Jack O'Latern Bringing Out those Non-believers!


I'm so excited about this new warmer. Scentsy out did itself this time. What a great way to combine not only the pleasing fragrance of Scentsy, but also to have a wonderful Halloween decoration as well.

Even my skeptical friends are ordering the Jack O'Latern Scentsy Warmer from me. They are my wonderful friends who were quite skeptical when they heard I was beginning a home based business. Having been victims of other Direct Selling businesses, they were quite leary. You know, they avoid you when the topic of Scentsy comes up because they think you are going to try to recruit them and all their friends and family. They are afraid to come over to your home because you might have the chairs in the living room in the shape of a circle. You know those old Amway horror stories.

Although, I couldn't blame them, I was skeptical myself. In fact when my husband first brought home a Scentsy Catalog, I avoided it because it was Multi Level Marketing. However, when I saw the product, I thought it was an innovative idea along with an incredible business opportunity. The more I thought about it I couldn't think of a reason why I shouldn't join. For only $99 I was able to receive everything I needed to start my own Scentsy business. I was so excited I couldn't sleep. I waited until a reasonable hour in the morning to call the name on the catalog. She was the wife of my husbands co-worker, I had briefly met once.

After that it has been a wonderful Scentsy addiction. Hence our team name "Scentaholics." There isn't a day that goes by that I don't ponder ways to seize the opportunity of being one of the pioneers of Scentsy.

With a little bit of time, my friends and family have realized I'm not a pushy person, I am in this Scentsy business because I love the product and strongly believe in the business opportunity. They are seeing my passion in what I do and are starting to come around. In fact of the 200+ members of my team, I haven't had to strong hold one of them. When the Scentsy business opportunity presented itself to them, they were smart enough to see the Scentsy vision. They didn't need any convincing.

Now, my friends and family don't avoid me when I talk about Scentsy. They realize there is more to it than they originally thought. They see this is a business I am not only enjoying, but having a lot of fun with. As one of my friends put it, "I have never seen so you passionate and enjoy your job as much as you do with Scentsy, its nice to see." In fact, my Scentsy business grew so quickly, it has been time consuming at times. I'm very grateful for my friends and family who although may have not understood, were supportive of me building my Scentsy business.

In the beginning, I think most of my acquaintances thought my candle business was a fluke and wouldn't last longer than a couple of months. Now that they have seen my business grow by over 500% this past year and watched my Scentsy team grow to over 200+ Consultants located throughout the United States, Armed Forces, Puerto Rico and soon to be entering an international market including Canada, they aren't as skeptical. They have watched my paychecks gradually increase each month. Also, when they see me take off for exotic, all expense paid vacations to Banff Canada, Alaskan Cruises, the fabulous Broadmoor Hotel and other exotic hotels for spa treatments etc., they are realizing that this is something to be taken a little more seriously. Also, when they saw the $2,000+ check I received at the Scentsy Convention for winning the Annual Sales & Mentor Award, they realize, maybe there is a little more to this Scentsy Business.
