Rockin the Republic


Two years ago Luke and I moved into our very first home.

As a housewarming gift Luke's mom brought me a Scentsy warmer with some scents. We plugged it in and the smell of blueberry cheesecake quickly began to fill our home. It was heavenly.

After looking into the product and Scentsy company and then spending MANY conversations with Luke and MANY moments in prayer I finally decided to take the plunge and sign up to become a consultant for Scentsy.

Two years later, because of that decision, followed by hard work, setting goals, new customers, devoted customers and a growing team under me, I was able to enjoy a completely free vacation.

I'm talking absolutely free. Air fare? Free. Luggage fees? Free? Food? FREE.

Get it? FREE.

I spent $11 on a shirt for Eli but that was all I spent while enjoying the beautiful beaches of the Dominican Republic.









I got to spend my amazing and relaxing week with my mom who joined me for the fun. It was such a special week.



I started my journey as a Scentsy consultant just to make a little bit of extra money and since then it has far exceeded my expectations. And I'm not even talking about it in a monetary sort of way. I have challenged myself, developed friendships, and set goals for myself that are WAY out of my comfort zone.

When I first joined Scentsy I never for a second considered that earning a free trip could be something that was attainable for me. I figured it was for everybody else, but definitely not me.

And then one day something clicked in my mind and I decided that I COULD do it, and I would TRY my hardest to earn the trip this year. And I did it! It's amazing what setting some goals and writing them out can do for you.

I can't wait to grow as a consultant and hopefully enjoy many more trips! I am so thankful that I decided to join this company. It was a good decision.

I've been thinking about becoming a scentsy consultant, but have no clue how to start. I'm seriously terrified about getting up in front of people and speaking though! How do you even start booking parties and stuff?
