Finding a job that you love can be hard. Sometimes the hours are awful, but the working is great. Other times the people you work with are amazing, but the work itself is less then desirable. Don’t you wish there was a way to do something you loved, set your own hours, and still get paid. This is what many direct selling companies claim to give you. There is a product that you sell (which you love), you get to work when you want to, and get paid for sharing these products with people.
Scentsy is one of those direct selling companies that seem to have it all. When you join Scentsy you not only get a discount on your product but you earn commission on everything you sell to your friends, neighbors, or people on the street. Many direct selling companies have been around for a while, and Scentsy is starting to become one of those companies. For 10 years people have been joining Scentsy and increasing their income.
What are the benefits of working for yourself through direct sales?
Like mentioned before you are able to set your own hours and work when you want to work. If something comes up in your personal life you can make arrangements and not have to ask a boss for time off. Selling a product that you love is key. If you aren’t passionate about it then it will be much harder to sell. Find something that you love and your friends love too. If it seems like all your friends use the product then it makes sense to sell the product and feed their addiction. Having passion for the product you sell is also important so that way when things get tough you will be able to pull through and keep a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude is a must have when joining Scentsy or any other direct selling company. Every company has growing pains or goes through changes and by being able to look at the bright side or finding the positive in any situation will set you apart from all the other representatives out there. Another benefit is you get to set your own pay scale. What other job lets you do that? You decide how much you want to make. If it’s enough money to pay for your groceries, you can do that in 1-2 parties a month. If it’s to pay your mortgage you can do that in 4-5 parties a month. You can work as hard as you want and your efforts are rewarded.
Some of the not so obvious benefits of working for yourself though direct sales is the relationships that you will make. The person you sign up under becomes your life line and in many cases best friend. They are there for you when you have questions, you celebrate your highs and your lows, or just need someone to talk to. You also gain relationships with your customers. Helping people find their perfect product can turn into lasting friendships. It’s even more amazing when you decide to start recruiting people yourself and become a leader to others. You get to watch them change for the better. There is nothing more rewarding then to see someone who was struggling either financially, socially, or even emotionally and through your coaching they begin to shine. That’s the beauty of direct sales. It gives a person the tools they need to take control of their life. Maybe they need money to go on a family vacation. Maybe they are shy and need help coming out of their shell. Maybe they never had close friends and need a supportive community. When you join Scentsy or another direct sales company you get all of that at more. It’s one of the best career moves you can make. The best part is you can do if part time until you make enough money to do it full time. Little steps over time will prove to be big steps in the right direction in the end.
