Happy birthday Scentsy, for today we turn sweet sixteen! That’s right, Scentsy was launched on this day in 2004 by Heidi and Orville Thompson in Idaho in the United States.
It seems almost incomprehensible how far the company has come in just 16 years. We now have consultants all over the world and every one is like family. We also have a huge customer base who all love Scentsy almost as much as us consultants do!
Obviously the covid-19 pandemic has affected the majority of businesses this year but we’ve been delighted to discover that there’s still the same appetite for Scentsy as ever and we’ve been blown away by the support from customers who have still continued to order throughout lockdown – I suppose spending all your time at home, really makes you want to keep it looking and smelling its best! We know that fragrance is very powerful and that it has helped lots of people to deal with anxiety, to work and study at home, and just make people’s environments more pleasant to spend time, so we’re delighted that we have helped make this period a little less difficult for many.
We may not be having the Sweet Sixteen birthday celebrations that we may otherwise have done this year, but every consultant will no doubt be marking the day in some small way – I know I will!
If you love Scentsy and have ordered anything over lockdown then thank you for your continued support. We may be an international company but every sale helps a small local business as well: your consultant. If you haven’t, we understand entirely that this is a difficult time for many and we look forward to things being better for you in the future. We’ll always be here when you’re able to order again.
Many people are finding that their work situation has become very uncertain over the last few months and a lot don’t know what the future will bring. While this can be a worrying time, sometimes these adversities can become opportunities. We are busier than ever here at Scentsy and we can offer fabulous new possibilities for people who love the products and fragrances that we offer. From a side hustle income stream to a whole new career path, this year could be the time to try something new and becoming a consultant could even be the positive to come out of all this difficulty? I’m here to help if you think that might be a good next step for you. Just get in touch.
So, happy birthday to Scentsy – I know I’ll be raising a glass to that today!
