My Scentsy Story

So, this is my very first blog post EVER!! I thought I would start this thing off by posting my Scentsy story. So here goes...

My husband, my daughter and I have lived in Northwest Arkansas for our entire relationship. I grew up here and, although I have lived in many other states, I'm always drawn back here. This is my home. We moved to FL for a couple of years, but decided it just wasn't for us so we moved back here to NWA in 2010. While we were in FL, I went to college and got a degree as a CMA. I love the medical field and found my job as a Cardio nurse very rewarding! But when we moved, I had trouble finding a job here in AR, and my husband got an amazing position with a HUGE corporation which requires him to travel a lot. Our daughter was about to start school and I needed to find a job with some flexibility in the hours, which just isn't available in the medical field. So I began opening my mind up to other possibilities. In the meantime, Spring was in the air and there were lots of craft fairs and festivals going on in our area. One Saturday, we all decided to go to a Spring festival and that day changed my life! At this festival there were lots of vendors set up selling their handmade crafts and products. I walked by them scanning what they had, but we were there to have fun and play games, so I wasn't really interested in buying anything....UNTIL an amazing smell filled my nose! I LOVE things that smell good! I have always been a candle and room spray person. I just love to walk in to my house and smell fresh, clean fragrances! So, I followed my nose and it lead me to a little tiny booth at the very end of the vendor tents. There was a lady there with a variety of boxes that had the name "Scentsy" on them. She walked over and introduced herself and her products. I had never heard of Scentsy before, so I had no idea how it worked. She did a quick demonstration and gave me some of her scent samples along with a catalog. I ended up buying a warmer and a bar from her, and when we got home I plugged it in right away and started warming my candle bar. Needless to say, I was in love!! I still have that warmer and use it everyday. I had never considered this as a business opportunity until a few months later when I saw a friend of mine on Facebook talking about her new Scentsy business. I sent her a message about it and after chatting for a while, I decided that this might just be exactly the opportunity that I was looking for! So, I went online and signed up under her! That was February 21, 2011. I have now been with Scentsy for a little over a year and never dreamed that I could be so blessed and rewarded from a JOB! I thank God everyday for all of my blessings! I know this has all been from Him because I could never have come up with this on my own. I love my "job" and I have the most amazing customers in the world! My daughter gets to help me run my business and my husband is my biggest fan and supporter! Life is good... :)
