Watch this video for the Scentsy Story:
I am an American from Seattle who lives in London England. You're probably wondering about how you would join my team if you aren't local. My Scentsy sponsor (whose a Superstar Director and one of the founding Directors of Scentsy) actually lives in the United States and through the power of technology and cheap telephone rates, its very very easy to speak regularly. I'm on the phone consistently with her weekly and when you join my team it will be the same to Canada.
Scentsy has grown over 300% in the US every year since 2004. They have recently expanded and added more products like Scentsy layers, Sincerely Scent, Velata and in August of 2012 Grace Adele. There's a lot of opportunity to grow and with about 300k consultants in the US, its far from saturated. Avon has over 6 million consultants and they are still the number 1 direct selling company out there bringing in over a billion dollars a year.

Well...you have to start getting out of your comfort zone and meeting people. There's networking meetings, events, shows, groups, church's, etc. Anywhere there's people (including the checkout line) you can talk to them about Scentsy. If I can manage with Scentsy with my limited contacts...you can do it too.
