I've been something of a Scentsy 'Enthusiast' for just shy of 2 years now. I was basically hooked on the stuff from my very first order. The selection of scents & the quality & beauty of the warmers had me from Day 1. Scentsy really is wonderful & it didn't take me long to start thinking about signing up to sell the stuff myself. However a few apprehensions held me back.
- I am not, and never want to be 'one of those sales people'. You know the kind. The sort that you hide from when you see them in public, or have blocked Facebook altogether because they are constantly trying to sell you some useless crap that you don't want or need. They seem to lack ANY sort of social niceties or common curtesy. They are pushy, and annoying, and generally just icky. NO!
- What will people think? Will they think that I have joined some sort of Multi Level Marketing Cult? Will they think the product is stupid? Will they think that *I* am stupid? Will some people think that Scentsy is bad & toxic and awful, and will I constantly find myself backed into corners 'explaining' & apologizing for myself and the product?!
- Do I even have the time, energy, or care to make this successful? How much time & mental energy will this gobble up?
So, for over a year I held back and resisted the temptation to sign up as those worries tumbled around in my brain.
But then Scentsy released Diffusers. And you know something? That, for me, was the final straw. The diffusers (which are available Sept 1!) are absolutely STUNNING, and I really feel strongly that they are going to take Scentsy to the next level. When I saw the press release introducing the new Diffusers & Oils I knew that now was the time to get on board.
My initial apprehensions, concerns, & negative thoughts are still in the back of my mind, of course. I still have my worries. But ultimately, I figured WHY NOT?
Not doing something that you want to do because you are concerned about what people might think is ludicrous. For one, I believe that people are often kinder & more supportive than we give them credit for, and likely much few people will have any criticisms of my new venture. And two, even if there are a few people who take it upon themselves to rain on my parade-- so what? When has what anyone thought of me ever stopped me from pursuing something that I thought was fabulous? Never! And that's not about to change!
So! Here I am. A brand new Scentsy Consultant. I have so much to learn and a long way to go, but I am super excited to get started! I hope that I am able to introduce a few new people to this amazing line of fragrance products and bring a few smiles to a few faces.
