This has been our Scentsy journey, so far. It’s our journey, because Scentsy is our family business. My beautiful daughters, Rylee Bay 16 years old, and Emma Wade, 11 years old, are future SuperStar Directors, unless they decide to pursue their own dreams, which I hope they do. We started using Scentsy in our home in 2007. I was introduced to Scentsy by my friend, Shelly Jackson. She was a Scentsy Consultant, and I was amazed by the wonderful smell of her home. I began buying it that day.
It wasn’t until March of 2009, when both of my children were now in school, and I needed something else to do with all of that extra time! It was then that I was going to place a reorder for some Scentsy bars with Shelly, when it occurred to me that I could do this. I could sell Scentsy! I was selling it every time someone walked into our house anyways, but then I would earn the money. I thought about it, and thought, what do I have to lose? I LOVE Scentsy, and it is only $99 to join. I signed up to be a Consultant on March 14th, 2009.
14 days later, I had my Launch Party. I sold over $1,000.00 and promoted directly to Certified Consultant! I also qualified for the Shooting Star Enhancement Kit, and ordered it.
My very good friend, Angie Castillo had my first basket party. She lugged that huge basket of Scentsy party testers all over, and sold $600.00 instantly! She decided to join, and was my very first recruit and team member!!! How exciting! I was on my way, and got to share the Scentsy business opportunity with one of my dearest friends. Angie is now a Star Director!!!
Each month I had the most amazing feedback and sales. I promoted to Lead Consultant in April of 2009 and in May, I reached Scentsational Start Level 3!!! Besides the awards, I received $200.00 in Scentsy credit! I was also recognized on stage at the 2009 Scentsy Convention in Utah. It was very exciting, and embarrassing all at the same time. I could hear our group cheering for me from the back of the Convention Center.
In July, 2009, I received an email from Scentsy. I won an Alaskan Voyage for 7 days!!! I went on an amazing Alaskan Cruise that included a day in Canada. Thank you Scentsy!!! It was more beautiful than I had ever imagined. I’ve since won trips to Hawaii, Boston, Disney World, the Dominican Republic, New York, Cancun, SuperStar Director Summit at the Home Office in Idaho, St. Louis, Las Vegas, and Nashville!!! When you travel Scentsy style, you travel like royalty.
My team continued to grow, but was also very strong. It seemed that all of us were sharing the Scentsy opportunity with everyone. I promoted to Scentsy Director in October 2009! Soon after that, Angie promoted to Director, and my cousin Tina signed up and promoted to Director, all within 3 months!!! Angie and I attended Director Boot Camp at the Home Office in Idaho. What a “Willy Wonka” experience that was. We were in awe!!!
In March of 2010, I promoted to STAR DIRECTOR! I was one of the first Star Directors in California. I continued to work hard and grow a strong team. In July of 2011, I was nominated as a Scentsy Shining Star on stage at the Convention in Texas…ME!?!!? What a surprise and an honor. When I realized what was being said about me, I just couldn’t believe it. Such wonderful, and loving words from my fellow Consultants, just blew my mind. I was so shocked, and still am, every time I think about that moment. What a true honor. I am just doing my job, and being Nikki along the way. This sounds so cliché, but even though, I wasn’t chosen as the Shining Star, it was truly from all of my heart an honor to even be nominated. Not to mention, I thought it was a joke, and I was being “punked,” or something…
In October of 2011, I promoted to SuperStar Director, can you believe that? I still can’t. In January of 2012, I attended my first Leadership Retreat in Cancun, Mexico. What a wonderful trip that was for me, and my team! With this promotion came the opportunity to attend the 2nd Annual SuperStar Director Summit in Idaho, the following September. I was excited and honored to share that amazing experience with my Scentsy family. I came back a stronger and better equipped leader. Spending the week with other SuperStar Directors and the Scentsy Home Office was more than I could’ve imagined. Everyone made us feel so loved and valuable. Since then, I’ve had the chance to attend subsequent Summits. I cannot wait for the next one!!! If this is my J O B, somebody needs to pinch me, please.
Wow! What a ride so far. Today we’re into our 7th year with Scentsy. Our strong and mighty group of 992 Consultants is made up of 13 RockStar Directors and their teams! Our organization is filled with many passionate members. I believe that you get out of Scentsy what you put into it. The Scentsy career might not be what you choose. You might choose part-time. That is o.k. We are Independent Consultants, and we can run and grow our businesses as much as we want. I have chosen Scentsy as my career. I have to share this gift with everyone in some form. I would never be where I am today without Scentsy. I am so grateful for Scentsy, our team, our frequent hostesses, and our loyal customers. I can’t wait for the next stop on our amazing Scentsy journey. Won’t you join us?
