Our Scentsy Story
We live just north of Seattle, Washington in a little coastal town on the Puget Sound called Mukilteo. Shawn and I have 2 great kids, Alex & Sam, 3 cats and our crazy Chihuahua Daisy
Life wasn’t so good a few years ago?
I was a recruiter for 11yrs and I just had to close my recruiting business due to the economy. Shawn has always worked but, our recruiting business was really the main source of our family’s income. We were financially devastated, lost our entire savings and went deep into debt.
In December 2008 I was PTA President of our kids Elementary School and ran a Holiday Store. That year I brought in Vendors to help make extra money for our PTA. Shawn was supposed to watch the kids and help them shop for Christmas presents while I ran the event. Well, every time I looked up I saw Shawn at the Scentsy booth. Other than booking the Scentsy Vendor, Katie, for this event, we’d never heard of it.
Shawn fell in love with the product, concept, internet and team building opportunity Scentsy offered and he thought Katie was great! Shawn knew that Scentsy was for him but we didn’t have enough money to pay the light bill so how could we even think of spending $99 to Join? Thanks to Katie, we were able to figure something out! He became a Scentsy Consultant on December18th 2008.
Our Scentsy Start did not begin auspiciously our heat and cable/internet were turned off because we couldn’t pay the bills. How do you build an online business without internet access We had creditors calling us every day all day long too. We’d head to the library daily to use their free internet and because it was warm there. We told our kids too that the heater broke and the part had to come from Europe?thank goodness they were too young to question us. For over a month I had to heat up our water for baths on the stove. It sucked but, we did what we had to do.
Meanwhile, Shawn was working furiously to build a website, blog, and everything else that you needed to do to build an online presence for yourself while working full time. One day Shawn would be depressed by our situation and I would be the one to perk him up. The next day it might be me who was upset and he was there to lift me up. We could’ve completely imploded on one another during this horribly stressful time but we sucked it up and kept working on our businesses and with each other making us stronger!
A few months later, things started picking up with Shawn’s work and on AND with his Scentsy business. Scentsy was growing rapidly and we were really starting to see the fruits of his labor.
On October 2009, Shawn came to me and asked me to run and grow our Scentsy Candle Business. He was juggling both a full-time Job and a rapidly growing Scentsy business and was just too busy to do both so he asked me to run our Candle business. Although I loved Scentsy products and used them all the time, I’d worked in corporate business-to-business jobs my entire career. Would having parties and working with a cute little candle company, be enough for me I wasn’t sure but I knew that I had to give it my best shot.
Shawn saved me and our family that day, in more ways than one. I not only fell more in love with Scentsy Products and the company, but loved working with a downline, training our team and growing our business exponentially. From October to December (before Christmas) we had grown another 33 consultants and we’ve never looked back. Shawn gave me a new career (that I LOVE) and with his vision, we’re building our dream of a debt free future!
In the years since Joining Scentsy, we’ve been able to dig ourselves out of debt; go on All-Expense paid 5 Star Trips; meet the most fantastic people AND, never have to worry about having our Power or Internet turned off or being chased by creditors ever again!
The best part of the business, for us, has been seeing the wonderful consultants in our downline achieve success. We have people from all walks of life in almost all 50 US States, 10 Canadian Provinces, Guam, Puerto Rico, Germany and the United Kingdom on our team of almost 1000 consultants. Hearing them cry from excitement over an accomplishment, award, trips earned and about how their lives are changing has been priceless.
Shawn and I work as partners. We both work the parts of the business that we each like and excel at. Our goal is to have Shawn work from home with me very soon. We’ve done it before (with my recruiting business) and loved it!
