Scentsy Wickless candles currently has over 100,000 consultants. When I started with the company, back in the olden days of 2006, there were only 500 consultants company wide. That’s such a wild concept considering my own personal group is larger now than the entire company was when I started my Scentsy journey.
As I sit here in my rocking chair, quilt on lap, reminiscing about what it was like to walk a mile to school, uphill, barefoot in the snow, I’ll share what it was like when I was a brand new Scentsy consultant.
My Starter Kit
I received a Java candle warmer as shown in the above photo, lower right image on left page of the catalog. It was brown and shaped like a small coffee pot. It’s now retired. The candle bar I received was Rum Cake. It’s similar to our current Sugar Cookie, only about ten times stronger. It’s now retired. The room spray was Flower Shop. The container was metal, not like the now plastic canister. It was very strong smelling; obviously floral and heavily rose scented. Not my favorite. It is now retired.
The party testers had metal caps on them (shown in above picture). There were no basket testers or mini testers. There was no New Consultant Start-Up Guide, no eBooks, I don’t think there was even much of a Policies and Procedures Guide. When I asked if I could have an external website, they weren’t sure how to answer that as no one had one previously. The catalog was 12 pages, approximately 8″ x 8″ in size, warmers were priced at $14.95. I think bars were $2.95 each. [Read more…] about Scentsy in the Good Old Days
