Remember Margaret? My friend that you met in my last blog post? Well, Lauren, Margaret and I all worked together waaaayyy back in the day. Lauren is now an independent consultant for Scentsy. You've seen those cute little wax warmers, right? They have other items like bath bombs and car air fresheners and they smell delicious!
Before we get to Lauren's interview, just for fun, I'm going to throw in some flashbacks. These are circa 2009.
Lauren, tell us about your family.
I have been married 10 years and have a wonderful 9 year old son.
What are five things that bring you JOY?
My son & family
What did you dream of becoming when you were a kid?
I wanted to be a vet and a astronaut.
If money weren’t a problem, what you spend your days doing?
I'd be at the beach or traveling with my son.
Tell us about your business and how you got started with Scentsy?
I got started with Scentsy a year ago. I love the smell of fruits, floral, desserts, etc., anything good. I have 2 boys in the house and 2 dogs, so Scentsy helps make it smell amazing. They offer so many other products. I don't have many friends and since I've joined Scentsy I have made so many new friends. It help me get out of my shell and meet new people. I have friends all over the US thanks to Scentsy.
What do you enjoy most about being a Scentsy Consultant?
I really enjoy sharing the products with people. I want them to smell something that reminded them of a family memory, their childhood, grandparents, etc. It's just something to bring joy to others.
What motivates you?
My family and competition motivates me. I like to be competitive with myself and set goals each week. When given a task I go above and beyond and try and make it the best I can - like being able to provide for my son. When I make commission, it goes toward things like paying for his soccer uniforms or new shoes. The $99 I paid to sign up with Scentsy has changed my life.
What is your biggest struggle as a business owner?
Clients. I am not pushy and to make money you need to have your clients order products, but I share the samples and then I leave the ball in their court. I have not yet done a home party and that is a goal I have for myself this year.
