I’ve been a Scentsy consultant for 6+ years and am finally calling it done because the company is a sham. Those who got in early and shamelessly built a team in this pyramid scheme are doing fine.
Now, it’s just not possible. And ethically, what type of person would convince people to “join the family” knowing they would never make money? I didn’t do this as my only job. Good thing, too.
The products are fine but are not “needs”—they are “wants.” With so many of us cutting back our budgets, these types of products are the first to go. There are so many problems with trying to make money as a Scentsy Consultant. The high prices; the lack of environmental and community values that deter customers from supporting it (this is a Mormon-led company, and that’s who benefits). Unless someone is high up the ladder, they aren’t listed in the consultant directory.
There is such a strict set of rules and laws that no one but “the house” can benefit. Other lines are much more creative and better than Scentsy. Yankee candle has the edge on the market and Scentsy keeps trying to copy them. Pink zebra is better.
I never made even a penny in profit from Scentsy after 6+ years. But they continue to charge me $10/month for a site that they won’t list in their directory. You’ll hear from others that what i say isn’t true—that it’s not a pyramid scheme, that “hard work” is all it takes. Ha—look closer and you will find these people are 1) Mormons and/or 2) long-time beneficiaries of the Scentsy pyramid scheme.
I will no longer patronize this company and its miserly patriarchal business dealings. Their products are no longer first-class, their “creative director” is a joke and the top managers continue to get rich while the consultants don’t make anything.
Proceed at your own risk. I tell you the truth.
