Scentsy Consultants: 10 Reasons to Try for Can-Do Cancún

By Amanda Hammond You know you want to be there with us, and you can see yourself reclining in a lounge chair, enjoying the relaxed and beautiful setting of Cancún, Mexico. Every winter your BFFs within your close-knit, much-loved Scentsy Family come home talking about how rejuvenated they feel, how they’re taking the momentum from their sunny, fun-filled, all-expenses-paid vacation and inserting it directly into their business. (Not to mention they’re now sporting a really nice tan – in the middle of JANUARY!) Maybe you think you can’t do it and it seems impossible; you have SO MANY other things to do – the dishes, the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, feeding the kids, not to mention getting to the grocery store or bank or home improvement store. With a list that long, no wonder you’re exhausted?! Why not let Scentsy do your dishes, grocery shopping, and home improvement projects? Okay, so maybe we can’t actually refinish your kitchen floor or re-grout your ...

Scentsy Consultant Spotlight: Tammy Powell

By Mary Thompson  “I am not a salesman. I have never sold anything in my life and so far with Scentsy, I still haven’t. I tell people about the amazing product, let them test it, and it sells itself. I knew I was a Scentsy lover, I just didn’t know there were so many like me!” Tammy Powell’s Scentsy journey began as so many do: She loved the products! Wickless warmers and wax intrigued her, and she placed orders for a few years before her Scentsy Consultant encouraged her to do more. “I had no plans to become a Consultant, but then Abby told me I should if I was going to order that much product,” Tammy said. “She explained the benefits of signing up, and I agreed it was the right decision.” After signing up, Tammy’s decision was quickly confirmed when she learned more about Scentsy’s core values, especially generosity. “I knew I was doing what God had planned for me when they announced Pay-It-Forward Day. I have been an ad ...

Sharing Scentsy on Vacation

By Megan Holbrook Summer vacation doesn’t have to mean putting your business on hold as a Consultant. In fact, your next trip may be the key to expanding your geographic reach, meeting new people, and finding new Consultants or customers! These tips are also great for all you die-hard Scentsy fans who want to share the love with everyone you meet. Whether your warm-weather travels take you out of the country or just out of the house for the afternoon, here are some ideas for sharing Scentsy on summer break: ·         If you’ll be staying in a hotel, turn on a warmer and warm some wax before you leave the room for the day.

SFR2014: TEAM Day!

By Tamara Turner Another jam-packed day full of training, celebration, and fun began with a story: The ongoing saga of Barman and his search for his true love. Will he find her before Reunion ends? (Hint: That's not her.)  @kimberly_A Then Orville and Heidi reflected on the early days of Scentsy and how it all began 10 years ago. Orville first met Kara Egan and Colette Gunnell at a trade show selling wickless candles. A short time later Heidi and Orville bought the tiny company, moved it to Meridian, Idaho, and Colette and Kara became some of the first Consultants! They are two incredible women with one very wonderful idea that has changed thousands of lives.  @pixiesue80 The day was filled with lots of celebration and recognition! Scentsy Consultants who have been with Scentsy for 5 years were invited to march across the stage, along with our Directors and Star Directors.   @kickinwicks Consultants from every year were also able to add their name to their class wall!&nb ...

Scentsy’s SuperStar Director Summit: Tell Your Leader to Be There!

It’s no easy feat becoming a SuperStar Director in the Scentsy family. It takes so much dedication, hard work, and HEART to achieve! These leaders have reached the ULTIMATE in Scentsy success, and it’s all because they focused their efforts on supporting their teams and the entire Scentsy family.

Now it’s time to give back to those who give us all so much! The SuperStar Director Summit, held right at the home office in Meridian, Idaho, is a great opportunity for our SuperStars to connect with other leaders, connect with the home office team, receive new leadership training, and get a sneak peek at what’s coming for Scentsy in the following year. 

This time is so important for our leaders! But it’s also invaluable to the entire Scentsy family. Our SuperStar Directors play a pivotal role in determining the direction of the company each year. We gather their feedback and ideas each fall at the Summit, and strategize the future of the company together.


You might not be a SuperStar Director, but this event is so important for you too! Your leaders represent ALL Consultants. So you have two BIG jobs in the coming weeks to help them prepare:

1.   Encourage your SuperStar Director to attend the Summit! Registration closes on July 31, so be sure to reach out to them before then. It’s a great way to ensure your team has a voice in next year’s planning. It’s like a Scentsy democracy! Your leader’s attendance means your team is represented.

2.   Share your ideas, concerns, questions, and feedback with your SuperStar Director before the event kicks off on Sept. 8-12, 2014. Then they can present them to the group at the Summit and help make sure your needs are addressed.

Just think of all the exciting news and announcements your SuperStar Director will be able to share with you after the event! Don’t let your leader miss it! The cost is $350 to attend. That cost includes all training, hotel accommodations for four nights, three lunches and two group dinners, and a fun T-Shirt.

Thanks for your help in driving Scentsy forward in 2015!
