Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business

Scentsy Top 10 ListThis Top 10 List to help your Scentsy business was originally developed by Superstar Director Melissa Gratz. She put it out a few years ago during the holiday season. I liked it so well I just tweaked it a bit (with her permission) to align with Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business. The fun graphic was created by Superstar Director Christina Osburn. 

I love collaborating with my peers. We all have the same goal in mind, which is our Scentsy Mission Statement: To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses, and Inspire the Soul. 

Without further ado – Top 10 Summer Tips to Help Your Scentsy Business:

10. Say these words in your head. Then say them out loud: No limited time only promotion or backordered item is going to break my business, or slow me down. So what if someone needs to make a second choice. Make THE SALE, and wear a smile on my face while doing it. Love what you do – When you do, it shows, it’s contagious, and it makes people WANT to do business with you.

9. Spray every piece of USPS mail you send with a Scentsy Room Spray. While you’re at it, spray the cash in your wallet. You will pay for your items with the best smelling money in town.

8. Start focusing on June’s Scent/Warmer of the Month – Take pre-orders – Summer Sunrise and Summer Sunset are DELICIOUS!  The Lone Star warmer is both patriotic any citizen would be proud to own as well as rustic for Father’s Day. Continue reading

Does Mother’s Day Bum You Out?

mothers dayEach holiday social media is littered with “Happy This, Happy That” type posts that seem shallow and disingenuous. Right, wrong, or indifferent, that’s my opinion on the matter. However, I do have something other than a superficial greeting that I would like to say on the subject of Mother’s Day.

This post is for the moms who no longer have a living mother.

All too often I’ve heard women say they don’t like Mother’s Day because their own mom is no longer on this earth. With the exception of the very first Mother’s Day you endure without your mom, because that one is a doozy, I would strongly encourage those who share the sadness sentiment to change your attitude about Mother’s Day.

If you’re sad on Mother’s Day I assume that means because you adored your mom immensely and miss her greatly. I get that. I lost my mom to lung cancer before I ever finished high school. That was a long time ago, but rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about her. If your mom was also special to you, that means she was a wonderful person. So answer this: Do you think your mom would want you spending your Mother’s Day being sad? I can answer that, that’s a resounding NO WAY! Continue reading

Is Your Direct Sales Biz Not Doing Well?

If your direct sales business isn’t doing well, the answer is not to quit and try a different company. The answer is to fix what isn’t working. If you don’t know how, seek counsel from your upline. If you don’t mesh well with your upline, contact that person’s upline. If you don’t know who that is, contact your corporate office to ask. Review your starter material. Visit your training center. Participate in your team training page.

Let me repeat, if you direct selling business isn’t going well, the answer is not to quit and try a different company. “These things” work … as long as you do too!

Aim Low and You’ll Achieve It



I cringe every time I hear someone say, “I don’t expect anything. That way I’ll never be disappointed.”

So many cliches come to mind. Expect nothing and that’s exactly what you will get. People will treat you the way you allow. What a ridiculous attitude. What a mediocre way to live. Ick.

Not me. I’d rather expect a miracle and believe that all things are possible. I’d rather enjoy greatness. I like to thrive, rather than merely hope to survive.

What about you?
