Hi! My name is Emily and I am a former Army wife and mom of two sweet children. I recently moved to the Wichita Falls, TX, but I am originally from Ontario, Canada. I love to travel and scrapbook (when I can find the time!).
I was introduced to Scentsy in 2009 when I received my first Scentsy warmer and three bars from my sister-in-law as a gift. She had tried to explain to me over the phone what Scentsy was, but I didn’t quite get it. Once I received it in the mail, I plugged it in and turned it on and fell in love. There was just one problem – I didn’t know anyone that sold it! So I had no way of purchasing more when I needed it. After I used all of my bars (wax), I just let it collect dust on my shelf and went back to buying candles - GASP!
Then, I met the wife of a soldier my husband worked with, who sold Scentsy! I would buy a bar here and there from her when I needed it. Finally – I decided to host a party. I always host parties for the things I want. Why pay full price for something when there are better options? Between my family and friends I ended up having a $1,200.00 party! That was over $180.00 in FREE product, and 4 half priced items, and my consultant made $300 in commission!
My husband was on his second tour of duty to Afghanistan and I was raising our (then) two month old son, Sam, by myself. In addition to being a new mom, I was also volunteering as a Family Readiness Group Leader (FRG) in my husband’s battery. When I told my husband about how well my party did, he was excited for me! He asked me “Are you going to sell it?” with a twinge of expectation in his voice. I replied “Oh no, I’m too busy for that. With taking care of Sam and volunteering I don’t know how I could find the time!” He reminded me that all of the people who had ordered from my party would have no way of getting more when they needed it. Then I thought about how I FELT when it happened to me. They would come to me when they needed to order more anyway – so why not just sell it! With my husband’s support, I joined. I planned to do it as a hobby, and then get a discount on everything I wanted!
My plan backfired. As soon as I received my starter kit, I wanted to earn all of the new consultant awards that Scentsy offered! In one month, I earned my Shooting Star Award, and I had my first promotion. Less than 2 months after that, I earned Scentsational Start Level 3 and sponsored my first team member and promoted again.
Here I am, almost 6 wonderful years later. In addition to my son, I have a beautiful daughter named Cara. I am now a SuperStar Director and have a team of almost 700 people, spanning to all corners of the country including Canada, Mexico and Europe. This journey has blessed me with more than I could have ever imagined. I have made money, great friends, and have earned five all-expenses-paid vacations! Greece, the Caribbean, Cozumel Mexico, Cyprus and South Africa! I've been truly blessed, and I look forward to the years ahead - full of happiness, freedom and independence – and where I will be with Scentsy.
I look foward to having you as the next member of my team, or even helping you host your next party! If you are looking for Scentsy in North Texas, or anywhere in the US I can help! I would love just talking SCENTSY with you! I am sure you will fall for Scentsy just like I did!
Much love & many blessings,
