The Scentsy Mission

Have you ever wondered what Scentsy really stands for? What they are wanting to accomplish? Well, here is The Scentsy Mission:

“To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family–friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul.”

What does it mean to “warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul”? Well to me here’s what it means:

Warm the heart — make someone feel good

Enliven – intensify, build

Inspire –  help you to be the best you can be

With Scentsy warmers and Scentsy bars you are creating a scent in your home. It may be a scent that reminds you of something or someone or it may to have a warm and welcoming scent to welcome your guests. Scent is meant to help you feel happy, to invoke memories, and that is exactly what Scentsy does. And the process of making you happy (enliven) your scent experience is intisified (enliven) as you remember or relax or just feel good that your home is filled with amazing Scentsy fragrance! I am so very thankful to have Scentsy in my life as it has helped me to be the best me I can be (inspire). From the home office to members on my team, people inspire me everyday to want to do more for others, to be the best me!

Are you doing something you LOVE and ENJOY? Do you wake up with the intent of helping others feel loved? Do you WARM the hearts of others, ENLIVEN and INSPIRE them? That, my friend is something I hope that I strive to do on a daily basis. Do I alway succeed? Nope! But tomorrow is always a new day and though I fall short on some days, I will start with intent every day.

LAST CHANCE to Purchase these Scentsy Products

Scentsy has a new catalog twice a year – we have a spring/summer catalog that is good from March to August and the fall/winter catalog goes from September to February.

Traditionally, Scentsy has a 10% off sale in the last month of a catalog. And that is the case this month as most everything in the Scentsy spring/summer catalog is 10% off!

But, that isn’t all. With the ending of a Scentsy catalog comes the end also to some of the Scentsy products we have come to love. The Scentsy warmers  and Layers by Scentsy products being discontinued will not be back but some of the Scentsy fragrances will be. However, there is not guarantee which of the fragrances will be back in the spring/summer 2016 catalog so if you love a scent, stock up!

There is just 2 weeks left before the end of August, the end of the 10% off sale and the dreaded saying goodbye to these Scentsy products so be sure to get them before they are gone!! And some will be gone for good. https://getascent.scentsy.us

 

Traveling Scentsy Style – Part 5

If you have been reading my blogs about my travels with Scentsy, you KNOW how much I love them! Scentsy knows how to pamper and make their consultants feel loved.

Scentsy truly is the most generous company I know. Sure, they are in business to make money (as we all are) but what they do for their consultants is spectacular. They know that taking care of those that work hard is the best motivation.

The summer Scentsy incentive trip for 2010 was “More Parties, More Prizes”. Scentsy consultants were given the opportunity to earn prizes and the top prize was a trip to Boston! There were many amazing prizes to earn like iPads, bicycles, sewing machines, and cameras, and I had many friends that had their eye on other prizes but I had my eye on Boston. Scentsy awarded the top 100 earners an all expenses paid trip to Boston for two!

In August, I received an email letting me know that my husband and I were Boston bound! Late September 2010, we were headed to Boston for an all expenses paid vacation! Scentsy took care of every detail! We experienced a dinner cruise in the Boston Harbor, breakfast at Fenway Park (and an private tour of the stadium – even got to stand in the “Green Giant” and got our picture taken down by home plate), and a city excursion. What an amazing time!

Every Scentsy trip we are blessed with we are also blessed with new friends and getting to see friends we have already met. It truly is like a family reunion every time we go on a Scentsy trip or go to a Scentsy event.

Boston was our first Scentsy incentive that included our Canadian Scentsy consultants. I was blessed to meet and become friends with them. What an wonderful opportunity Scentsy is worldwide!

Speaking of worldwide, Scentsy is now in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, France, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand! In just 11 years of being a company, Scentsy sure has come a long way!!

I have never had another job that pays me to do what I love AND sends me on vacation! Thank you Scentsy!!

Until next time….

Remembering Zach

Instead of Scentsy, this blog is personal.

Today would have been my nephew’s 21st birthday. I remember his mom coming to my house (which was closer to the hospital than her’s at 45 minutes away) to “wait to see if this was labor”. He came into this world loved by so many and left being loved by so many more.

May 26, 2007 will be a day that changed our lives forever. In a tragic accident, we lost our nephew, my brother and sister-in-law lost their oldest son and my parents lost a grandson.

Zach was a 12 year old boy full of life. Just the night before we were decorating for a niece’s high school graduation. Our community is VERY SMALL and there were just 4 seniors graduating from the school the next day. My family is VERY CLOSE and we were all out helping to decorate. Zach was using a air compressor to air up balloons. I will never forget the smile on his face as he was doing his “job”. I was “supervising” the decorating as I was playing and holding Zach’s 6 month old sister. Well, Zach accidentally popped one of the balloons and it startled his baby sister. I said, “Be careful Zach, you don’t want another to pop and scare Ella.” Well, with that mischievous smile he could have, he put another balloon on the hose and ever so slowly and with intent, he would put in a HUGE burst of air. He wasn’t be naughty – he was having fun and enjoying life. And for the record, he never popped another balloon the whole night.

My son was 10 months older than Zach and they were like brothers. They spent so much time with each other – either at our house or at my brother’s. They spent many hours playing, being mischievous, picking on their siblings, and planning. They planned – when they graduated, they were going on a road trip and when they were able to go to prom one of them would take Katie. Well, Zach went home to be with the Lord too soon to see either plan but Wesley held up his side and when he was able to go to prom, his date was Katie. There were tears of remembering but they had a fun night. The road trip I hope will come this next summer. We still have the “red van” that trip was to take place in but I think it will stay here as Wesley and his cousins go on the trip. 🙂

Zach also had a contagious laugh. Shortly after he died, his mom found a voice recording of him on her computer. She shared it with us and what a laugh. I still listen to is every once in a while just to hear his voice and laugh and to remember.

You know, Zach wasn’t here on earth for long – only 12 years. But he left an impact on us all. He loved life, he loved his family (especially his baby sister), and he LOVED baseball.

I wonder what he would be doing if he were still here. Would he be playing baseball at a college somewhere? Would he be a fun-loving joking young man? These are questions that won’t be answered but it’s okay. The memories will never fade.

I am writing this one just to remember Zach and the special boy he was and to encourage us all to love those around us everyday. We never know what each day holds and each day is a gift.

Joining Scentsy

Joining Scentsy is one of the best decisions I have made. Back in July 2008 I had no idea that I would be where I am today. All I knew is that I loved the way Scentsy filled a room with scent.

You see, my husband and I had walked into an farm service agency office that July afternoon and a wonderful scent met us as we walked into the door. It was one of those scents that we looked at each other immediately and said, “We have to find out what that scent is!” Of course, I had no problem asking the ladies what candle they were buring. They informed me that it was no candle – it was Scentsy! What was Scentsy? I had never heard of it before. The lady who had it on her desk invited me back to see it in action. There is was, a simple Scentsy warmer on her desk and the light bulb was warming the Scentsy fragrance Fried Ice Cream. I was immediately hooked.

I left the office with a catalog in hand. I was excited to see all the Scentsy warmers and over 80 Scentsy fragrances that were available. I went home, looked Scentsy up online (isn’t the internet a great information source). The very next day I joined Scentsy to be a consultant and I didn’t even have any Scentsy in my home. 🙂 What was I, a farmer’s wife, living in the most rural area possible, doing starting a home-based business? How was I going to make a business work where I lived? You know, I really didn’t think about those questions. I just knew that Scentsy was something I wanted to have in my home and even if I purchased only for myself, I would be a happy person!

I am happy to tell you that 7 years later, I am still Scentsy strong! I don’t just sell to myself – haven’t since the first week I was a consultant. My customers are all over the United States and yes, I have had customers from Canada and Mexico. My team has grown from just me to team members from all over the world. And there is room for more! I absolutely LOVE to help guide my team members as they start and build their Scentsy business.

Why am I retelling my story? Because I am here to tell you that IT DOESN’T MATTER where you live, what obsticales may be in your path – YOU CAN BE A SCENTSY CONSULTANT! Sure, I have learned that I have to “think out of the box” a little more than someone that lives in a populated area. But, I know that when I put my mind to it and if I continue to work by Scentsy business, it can and will succeed!

Come along! Let’s work together to make your Scentsy business the next success story!

Traveling Scentsy Style – Part 4

When I say beautiful scenery, clear waters and fragrant flowers where do you think of? I think of Hawaii!

June 2010 Scentsy sent me and my husband first to San Francisco and then to Hawaii – a fun filled Cable Cars to Coconuts incentive trip!

How fun it was to fly together with the small group of us that were in San Francisco. The memories of the few days in San Francisco danced in our heads as we flew across the ocean to Hawaii’s big island. There were met up with all Scentsy incentive trip earners.

Our days in Hawaii were filled with relaxing, catching up with friends and exploring. Our excursion that Scentsy paid for was a sail and snorkel tour. We had a blast and snorkeling in the clear waters of Hawaii were amazing. Our hotel also had a small cove we could snorkel in and there were multiple sea turtles that swam with and around us. One of the most beautiful sights I loved to see daily were the sea turtles sunning themselves on the rocks just beyond the fence where we would eat our lunch.

One thing I will always remember about Hawaii besides the beautiful scenery and gorgeous sunsets is how amazing Scentsy was in their generosity to their consultants. They pampered us and took care of us to the extreme. We didn’t have to do anything but show up at the airport at the beginning of our trip – they took care of every detail from there. Even the sandals they gave us were detailed – as we walked in the sand we left “Scentsy” imprinted in the sand.

Scentsy at the County Fair

What does a County Fair with the smell of animals in the air need? It needs Scentsy of course! 🙂

And it is County Fair time in Colorado – and I am sure all around the country but Colorado is where I am. 😉

This week I have been having fun at the Sand & Sage Roundup in Lamar. It’s a hour and a half drive for me each day but, as I have said before, Lamar is where I go shopping. It’s a trip that I have taken many times so the time goes quickly!

Animals and grandstand arenas can and will be smelly. My intent this week was reconnect with customers and to bring a little bit of fresh smell to the fair. I chose one of my all time favorite scents – Coconut Lemongrass – to share! I absolutely love this scent – it has a perfect combination of creamy coconut and lemongrass. It is fresh and clean – actually reminds me of a lemon cleaner I use! And you want to know a secret? The lemongrass helps keeps the flies away from my table area!

CLICK HERE to be taken to my website to find all Scentsy products in Coconut Lemongrass. And what could be better? A SALE! For the month of August most everything is 10% off.

One of the best feelings I can ever get as a Scentsy consultant is when I have customers who are excited to see the new Scentsy products – the Scentsy Diffusers and Scentsy Oils are a hit this year! But even better than the excitement is just the fact that I get to connect with my Scentsy customers. It is a chance for me to chat and catch up on what is going on with them. You see, my customers are more than just customers, they are friends that I truly care about.

This week I also was able to meet a little guy that I had the privilege to donate some Scentsy products for a fundraiser for him. He was born early and his community wanted to help him and his family out. I am blessed to be a Scentsy consultant for such an amazing company that encourages their consultants to share their core values of Simplicity, Authenticity, and Generosity.

I head back to the fair again today and tomorrow. I am hoping that I will be able to reconnect with more of my customers and make new friends. You know, sometimes someone you don’t know is just a friend you haven’t met yet. 🙂

Have a great Friday!

See you at the fair!
