It’s unusual for me to promote a direct sales company on my blog, but I recently learned of a relatively young direct sales company: Scentsy.
Direct sales isn’t quite my thing, but that doesn’t mean direct sales isn’t right for you. I personally know several very successful women who earned the “company” car, and were able to retire their husbands. So I know firsthand that it is a doable business!
So then, why am I promoting Scentsy? Simple–I like the products and the 0verall concept. Like I previously said, Scentsy is a young company. They are just celebrating their five-year anniversary this month (I like that too, because the market is still wide open and provides plenty of opportunity for potential consultants).
Their concept is simple too: A candle with no wick. How’s that for a safety feature? OK, there’s more to it than that so I’ll let Scentsy Consultant Director, Sherri Burton, provide her story and the Scentsy story in her own words below. And if you’re a guy reading this post–don’t be so fast to exit out of here. There are plenty of Scentsy male consultants! But if you’re not interested in this, maybe you know someone that could be!
One more thing…make sure you read all the way to the bottom where I announce Sherri’s contest for MyMochaMoney.com readers!
What is a candle that has no wick? It’s a Scentsy candle!
Before I share Scentsy with you. I would like to introduce myself. I’m Sherri Burton a Scentsy Consultant Director for a home-based company that offers its’ scent bars and ceramic warmers at in-home parties and through business displays.
I’ve been with Scentsy for 22 months. The Safety of the Scentsy products was a “WOW” Factor for me. My daughter and I were notorious for leaving the house and forgetting to blow out the candles and finding ourselves having to turn around and come back to the house to make sure we blew them out. I also love that I don’t have hundreds of products in my catalog that I have to remember, or a lot of products to have to lug around to do parties or events. Scentsy is simple and our price points are perfect.
My family has been very supportive with my Scentsy business. My kids love to help me label and get the customer orders together and their favorite part is going to events with me. My husband, Phil, has been my best supportive coach, always cheering me on and knowing just the right things to say to give me the motivation and determination to succeed in my goals and challenges with my Scentsy business!
It took me about a year to reach the Director level. I shared my passion and enthusiasm about Scentsy to everyone, I stayed focused on recruiting and building my team and I offer the Scentsy opportunity to everyone I meet. Scentsy has been a blessing for me and my family. It has given us the extra income to pay our bills, and actually have a real savings account for all those unexpected break downs you have with owning a home and car–without wiping out your bank account.
My long term goals with Scentsy are staying focused on Recruiting and Setting Goals. Being a great Team leader, Mentor and keep challenging and motivating my Team.
My biggest lesson that I‘ve learned in Direct Sales, is “Be who you are, share your passion, and your enthusiasm will be contagious. Those who are drawn to you will want to know you more. Don’t sacrifice YOU to get somewhere. “Sales is simply a conversation of sharing your passions with others.”
So I’m sure your curious now about Scentsy. Scentsy is a safe alternative to burning candles – flameless candles. A move away from the smoky, sooty candles of today to safe, healthy, fun and creative ways to bring the scents that make us happy into our lives.
Scentsy offers over 45 beautiful Deluxe Warmers, 12 Plug In Warmers and over 80 ‘sent’sational scents available in room sprays, car candles and our high quality flameless fragrances we call our Authentic Scentsy Bar, an impressively fragrant wickless candle bar that is warmed in a warmer rather than burned with a flame. Scentsy wax is safe around your children and pets, because the wax doesn’t get any hotter than your body temperature.
If you’re saying to yourself, “I would love to be a Consultant with Scentsy but I’m not really the sales-y kind of person,” at Scentsy, it’s all about relationships, not hard sell tactics. If you enjoy socializing and sharing Scentsy products with friends and family, you have all the qualifications you need to succeed. In fact, the complete lack of sales pressure and the simplicity of our products are the main reasons so many Scentsy customers decide to become Consultants. They find themselves enjoying a party experience instead of having to sit through a typical sales presentation and suddenly realize, “Hey–I can do this!” Even brand new Consultants feel comfortable and confident right from the start.
With Scentsy you have the freedom of being your own boss, the flexibility to set your own schedule and work as many (or as few) hours as you choose.
Sounds good to me!
