As I think about my business and the blessings that have come from it, I remember how reluctant I was to get on board with Direct Sales. As most of you know I was very hesitant to Scentsy and skeptical that it had any potential to be anything more than a little money to feed my candle obsession.
There are two things I hear when people mention selling Scentsy. The first thing I hear is “I want to sell so I can stay at home like you. I want to take my family on vacations and enjoy making money” the other thing I hear is “I would love to be a part of Scentsy, but I know too many people who sell. I could never be as successful as you, you were the first in the area.” Now, there are truths to both things said. You can create a work environment that allows you to make enough to pay bills and love what you do. The second truth is there are consultants out there and I was the first to my area.
People think having a lot of consultants in an area is a bad thing. Well I disagree. It says it is a company with enough demand and a reputation that allows growth. It says it is changing lives so often that people can’t wait to be a part of it! I am so thankful for the 50 girls in my local area. I love driving down the street and seeing their logos on the back of their cars. There are about 311,000,000 people in America, and about 150,000 active consultants. I would say there is definitely room for growth.
In this business there are a few things that are crucial for success. Consistency, discipline, passion. Anyone could sign up today and sky rocket to the top of the company, it just depends on what drives them. If they are trying to provide food, vehicles, or shelter for their family you may work harder. If you are trying to prove to yourself that you have self worth and can make something out of nothing, you may work harder. If you are willing to think outside of the box and step out of your comfort zone, you will find more success. If you can look at it as a marathon and not a sprint, your success will be so much greater. This business could and will change your life. In order to see that happen you have to have a desire to grow to new heights, conquer great fears, and face some lofty goals. If you can do this with passion, discipline, and consistency, then you will sky rocket to the top.
Your journey will not look like mine. My journey will not look like yours. I started selling Scentsy to make some extra money. It turned into making ends meet and making new friends. Making new friends and making ends meet tuned into making lifetime friendships, and working our way out of all debt. Which then turned into a growth in self confidence and self worth that I never thought I would experience. Yours might be to afford a car payment or pay for your kids to play sports. It could be to pay medical bills or get out of the house. No story looks the same. What I do know is that I work for a company that is constantly growing and creating new ways for me to stay successful. Their morals and values are not only in line with mine, but are a huge reason for their success. They are all about giving back, loving on their consultants, and allowing me to stay home with my children. Join me in changing your families life on this great scentsy journey! You won’t regret it!!!
