I did it again. I've signed up with one of the home based sales companies. I know that some people hate the idea of these sales, while other people think they're fun.
This time I've signed up to be Scentsy Independent Consultant.
You would have thought I'd learned my lesson already from the past few experience I've had with stuff like this, right? As soon as I signed up, panic rushed through me. I was immediately concerned that I had made a mistake.
But I feel like there are a couple things that make this different. First and foremost, I really like the products. I enjoy having a clean smelling home, a fresh scent in the car, and the smell of clean laundry. Scentsy products fit in with my life, and are things I use daily even if I weren't selling them. I like that the scents are warmed without burning. Plus you are capable of changing the scent frequently without much expense. And there is a whole new line of products coming out next month that I'm excited to try.
The second aspect that really made me decide to become an independent consultant was the flexibility that Scentsy provides. Unlike most sales companies, did you know that with Scentsy there are not quotas that have to be met? You only have to place one order (any amount) during the 6 month period from July 1-Dec 31. So at least I won't end up throwing money away. If I sell stuff great, if not at least I can buy my own items.
Before you all start worrying that my blog is going to become a giant sales pitch, it's not. This is my personal blog, and it will remain that way. I'm only sharing this with you because it is part of my personal life. I know these types of things aren't for everyone and that is fine with me. I just wanted to share my apprehension and excitement with all of you.
If you would like to shop Scentsy products, you will find a button that links to my personal website in the sidebar. If you want to ignore everything in this post, you can do that too.
