Consultant Spotlight: Kristen's Story

By Mary Thompson  On December 3, 2011, Kristen Anderson began her wellness journey. After reaching 488 pounds, health problems began invading her personal life and doctors told her there was no way she could lose weight on her own.   “Everything hurt, and all I wanted to do when I left the doctor’s office that day was cry,” Kristen said. “I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes and had nothing nice to wear to events. I couldn’t sit in a single airplane seat, go to baseball games, or go out with friends and have fun. I have seen how it took the lives of so many people in my family and I didn’t want to be another statistic.” In the beginning, Kristen’s weight loss goals were motivated by her desire to prove her doctors wrong, that she could do it on her own! Her direction shifted when she talked to Coach Lee and Marlo in 2012 at the Las Vegas Reunion. “I made it my goal at that point to join the committed program and try to help others ...

Goodbye, Grace Adele — Hello, BLOWOUT SALE!

It’s hard to say goodbye. A thousand tear-jerking country songs can’t be wrong. That one little word comes with a closetful of questions and baggage and emotions and memories to cherish. But it can also lead to exciting new beginnings! On July 31, Grace Adele — the big sister who has been giving us amazing style advice season after season — is saying goodbye. You might have known this for a while now, but thought you’d have plenty of time. One final summer together, right? But we all know how those summer romances go — they’re fleeting. And eventually have to come to an end. So as we get dangerously close to July 31 and share in Grace Adele’s final days, we’d like to make sure everyone has a fair shot at closure before she goes — and one more chance to stock your closets! There are still a few reasons to celebrate this week, even in the midst of our style grief. Their names are Allie. And Dylan. And Morgan and Joss and Skye! The new product ...

To celebrate this special time of year, let’s play a little game! (You are most welcome to do the same with your customers!)

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.

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 ...

Consultant Spotlight: Kristen's Story

By Mary Thompson 


On December 3, 2011, Kristen Anderson began her wellness journey. After reaching 488 pounds, health problems began invading her personal life and doctors told her there was no way she could lose weight on her own.  

“Everything hurt, and all I wanted to do when I left the doctor’s office that day was cry,” Kristen said. “I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes and had nothing nice to wear to events. I couldn’t sit in a single airplane seat, go to baseball games, or go out with friends and have fun. I have seen how it took the lives of so many people in my family and I didn’t want to be another statistic.”

In the beginning, Kristen’s weight loss goals were motivated by her desire to prove her doctors wrong, that she could do it on her own! Her direction shifted when she talked to Coach Lee and Marlo in 2012 at the Las Vegas Reunion.

“I made it my goal at that point to join the committed program and try to help others along the way to reach their goals. Now, this journey is all about motivating others to get healthy, so that we can push each other when we feel that we can’t go anymore.”

As Kristen has continued to lose weight and work towards her goals, it’s important that she helps out others along the way by encouraging them to keep going.

“This is a journey, not a diet. Make sure to remember this is forever,” She tells others. “You didn’t gain it in a day and there isn’t a quick way to remove it. You will have slip-ups and gains along the way. There will be days you want to quit and say it’s not worth the aggravation because it’s taking too long, but nothing tastes as good as healthy feels. The scale is not the only way to define your progress and the answers to your problems are not going to be found in a bag of Doritos or a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. Find what works for you.”

Since beginning her journey, Kristen now has no issues with her blood pressure, a BMI that decreased from 83.8 to 63.5, and fits in clothes that are 4 sizes smaller. Talk about hard work!

I am still 242 pounds away from my goal, so I hope you will join me in saying, “I can do this, I will do this, and I am worth it!”
