My Scentsy Story
By chance, through an acquaintance, I heard about the Scentsy brand, and once I had looked into the products that were available, I knew that this was an area where not only would I be able to hopefully make my mark, but also be able to enjoy what I do.I was among the first tranche of consulants to join Scentsy in the UK and that alone was a great incentive to introduce the UK public to the wonderful home fragrance products that were so unusual and new to our country.
Upon joining I just wanted a someone to take some interest, would it be too much to hope for a sale? Maybe two? I wasnt sure what to expect – I loved the products, but would anyone else? I was posting on social media sites, getting my husband to help set up a website and then there was nothing until one day, about a week after I received my first stock order, during the up-tenth nappy change (having twins is double everything!!) of the morning, I saw a message pop up out the corner of my eye on my iPad. Nappies changed..check, vest changed….check, bottles of milk tested….check…..oh what about that message I received over an hour ago!?
That message, was from a potential customer (a patient, potential customer I may add) who was enquiring about one of the Scentsy warmers that she had seen on my website. A potential customer that turned into my first ever customer, and now is one of my most active customers to date.
Fast forward a month and after several sales, I managed to speak to a fellow mum who was showing an interest in starting her own home based business – we spoke about the products, the potential growth and before I knew it, I was not only selling a product from home, but I also had my first team member who had the same enthusiasm for the product that I had then and still have today.
Fast forward once more to the current day and my business is going from strength to strength. I have regular customers, I have new customers, I have a team of 53 members, I have met some wonderful new people, I have contributed to my family finances and most importantly my business has allowed me to still play a major part in the development of my twin girls by being a stay at home mum.
However, I am not ready to sit back and relax just yet! I have plans and targets in place to ensure that I keep developing my business, more sales (of course!), more team members (hope so!).
My Scentsy Future? In a few years time, my little twincesses will be at school, and I will have additional time to dedicate to my Scensty business. I hope to have doubled my sales and team members in that time, and in order to do that I need to stay focused – I am doing this to help pay my bills, save for that dream holiday and also to leave a legacy for my children to continue the business should they wish.This is my Scentsy story…..with flexible hours, untapped potential growth, an unsaturated market….. I think it may be time to start writing your own story, starting TODAY!
