You should check out the one I chose.  I can usually find a reason to not do these business plans, but with this one, I couldn't say no.  It is 100% free to try, with no purchasing required, so people have nothing to lose to try it.  You only get one customer, then sign up other affiliates and help them do the same.  A simple plan, that builds you residual income from your organization.  My group is building this quickly.  Hopefully this will be something you would like to try.  Thanks in advance for taking a look at my website for more information.

    I am in the same boat as you. I have two sons and a daughter who was born in March. My husband is the "bread winner". I found Scentsy after talking with a lady on facebook.


    Monetary Investment:
    When you sign up to sell Scentsy you will invest $99 for the Starter Kit. After shipping and tax it comes to about $119. I received my kit in 3 days. You get your website within minutes and can actually start making sales right then and there. After this initial investment, you will no longer be charged for shipping on 'business supplies' over $30.  Business supplies can be any random add-ons such as additional order forms, catalogs, etc.  Some consultants also choose to buy things like the basket testers right off the bat. 

    Personal Investment:
    This is up to you. You are running YOUR business, so you make it fit your life, your world, and your needs. Your only sales responsibility to Scentsy is to sell $150 in ONE month within 3 consecutive months in order to stay active as a consultant. Going above and beyond this is your call. If you don't make the minimum goal, Scentsy's policies require termination.

    If you decide selling Scentsy is for you, I will be your 'Sponsor', Kathy Bandy (who you will LOVE) will be your director. Aspen Calhoun will be your Star Director, therefore in your Upline, as well. All of us, and anyone else in our group or our team, can answer questions, give tips, and be there to support you as you see fit.

    I will send you an email after you sign up and will offer news and events of Scentsy on a regular basis. I will be your 'go-to' person to whom you ask questions as the occasion arises. This is why you sign up under someone. So they can be a direct support.  In addition to these supports, you will also receive a monthly newsletter via email, New Consultant training, AND have the opportunity to join our monthly Team Meetings via conference call. 

    I will give you support from the start by emailing you helpful things like "Getting Started", "Organizing your Scentsy", "How to Place an Order", and much more. It's up to you whether you use or trash emails or tips that come your way. Why? Because it's YOUR business, so do what you decide fits you!

    We have a wonderful team on Facebook so if you decide to join Scentsy you will be able to join us on Facebook and have support from a TON of people.

    The compensation plan can be read in the back of your Scentsy Catalog. It can be overwhelming when you look at the chart at first. Here is what you need to know when starting out. You get paid according to your rank. Rank means the different levels you can reach as you sell. When you sign up, you are an "Escential Consultant" and move up from that title according to sales and recruits you sponsor.  As an "Escential Consultant" you get 20% of YOUR retail sales.

    Once you have sold $1,000 (in your career; not ONE month), you move up to "Certified Consultant" and will be paid 25% of YOUR retail sales. Then, if you sponsor someone, you can become "Lead Consultant" and will be paid 25% of YOUR retail sales, 2% of YOUR personal wholesale volume, and 2% of your RECRUIT's wholesale volume. The percentages go up as you move up in rank. Again, the chart in the catalog diagrams this. I would only worry about what you make up front...20%. It just gives me a headache past that. 

    Everyone wants to hear 'numbers'. Since Scentsy success depends on what works for you, it can be misleading to say how much I make or how much other consultants make.  Success is also dependent on what your own personal goals are.  My personal goal was to go in and make this fun.  Making money has been the perk of it all.  It is part of Scentsy's Policies & Procedures, however, to not disclose exact numbers or income to potential consultants.  Doing so would just be too misleading.  I will share though, that no matter what the amount is on that check each's wonderful to get paid to do something that is so much fun!!

    Discounts & Paychecks:
    You will receive commission via a paycard from Scentsy by the 10th of each month. Scentsy does not give their consultants anything OFF of their purchases. Instead, you get your applicable percentage BACK the next month. Please consider this if you are signing up in hopes of receiving special prices on their products. You don't get discounts but anything you buy for yourself (outside of ‘business supplies') counts towards your sales. Also, remember your commission checks are all pretax so you will need to withhold a percentage for your 1099. Scentsy will send you a 1099 next year during tax season. 

    Starter Kit:
    Your starter kit has A LOT of goodies. In fact, you will find that you really don't need to buy anything else if you so choose. Because I knew the majority of my sales were going to be from basket parties* (see below), I chose to buy a $25 mini- tester kit soon after I received my Starter Kit.  

    Your new Starter Kit will include the following:
    Large Party Testers (80)
    Catalogs (50)
    Order Forms (100)
    Invitations (100)
    Business Cards (100)
    Hostess Packet: Guest List, Hostess Rewards, 5 Hostess Envelopes
    Yearly Planner Scentsy Buddy Scent Pak
    1 Room Spray
    1 Scentsy Bar
    1 Car Candle
    1 Warmer (it will vary and be according to what they have a lot of in stock at that time)
    4 Lightbulbs
    5 Clear Bags
    Scentsy Binder
    Welcome Sheet 

    Resources & Website:
    You will be given a free website via Scentsy for 3 months. After that it is $10 each month. This will be your work station. You will have a Consultant ID and a password you choose. Each person's website is distinct by ONE word they will choose to add at the end of You can use your name, or find a word that represents Scentsy to you - smellies, loving, get some... (Jessica Bolin) I used Gifts

    Throughout your work station there are helpful tabs, links, handouts, and plenty of information to help grow your business.  You'll find updates, announcements, and resources to access independently and learn from daily. There is even a Forum that has been established to help you trade tips, ideas, and find out what other consultants are doing!  Endless resources to help make YOUR business successful and fun.  All of this is at your fingertips when logged into your work station through your website. 

    There is so much information to give about Scentsy. Many things you just learn as you go. If you decide you want to become a Scentsy Consultant, I would love to have an active role in helping you make this as successful as you see fit.  Scentsy is a growing company right now, and it's such a great fit for so many people. It sounds wild to say, but it really makes people giddy. It's a new adventure with tons of potential. The best part is it's YOURS. So you call the shots... 

    I haven't had to find my inner salesman to make this work. That's just not me, and it wouldn't be fun if I had to. I am not a salesperson; I never want to be a salesperson.  I decided from the start that being a Scentsy Consultant would be fun. Not work, just fun. It's worked for me so far, and I'll keep doing it as long as does.  

    That being said, I think it's important for you to decide what YOU want out of Scentsy before you begin. Otherwise, you might find yourself putting unrealistic expectations on what Scentsy can do for you. It's fun. So just have fun...and smell good things while doing it :)

    I hope this helps and would love hear any feedback or what else you would like to know!!... If you know you are READY to become a Scentsy Consultant, just go to my website ( and click on  START A BUSINESS.

    From there, you will order your STARTER KIT and become a Scentsy Consultant!

    I know that it is difficult to find something as there are so many out there to try from.  I know I had tried at least 4 or 5 in the past and spent a lot of money and wasted a lot of time.  I finally did find one a few months ago that gave me peace and encouragment, and it saved me money.  I don't have to worry about wasting money because it is risk free, I don't have to worry about inventory or doing parties or selling anything.  It's great, not to mention that this provides a residual income, I work around my busy schedule a few hours a week, and my first paycheck was pretty sweet.

    I know there are plenty of things out there and the trick is to find one before you find all the wrong ones, which I didn't do.  So if you are interested I would love to share with you how this is helping my family and saving me money on things I have to buy anyway.

    you can email me at if you want some more information and another option.  This is a green company and very little investment.

    you can also go to and view a 40min presentation and see if this works for you.
