Louisa knows The Business Woman’s Network events very well and is one of our positive advocates. In fact she attended the very 1st BWN meeting six years ago.
We are so pleased that she has decided to join us once again at the launch of our Saturday Events with her new venture and here she is telling us her story.
What made you set up as an Independent Scentsy Consultant?
I first found out about Scentsy at a local fair where I was given a sample. I could not believe how much I wanted to keep smelling this little bag with a small wax tester! The fragrance was so addictive and heavenly. I just had to have it for myself. I really was in my element when I had my 100 testers arrive to sniff in my starter kit!
Previously I have had so much trouble trying to find a fragrance that lasts in the house without causing my breathing problems to flare up; Non-toxic Scentsy wax warmers won hands down and I’ve had no breathing problems since.
How many years have you been in business?
I started in August this year.
What do you love most about running your own business?
Scentsy is pressure free and fits alongside my 3 children while I can enjoy scents till my heart’s content. I joined Scentsy because there isn’t any competition and I can work my own hours. Since joining up I have been able to solve one of my biggest problems – not getting enough sleep. I put French lavender wax in my warmer for my daughter and myself and we have been able to fall asleep naturally very quickly!
What do you hate most about running your own business?
I find it difficult to have the confidence to introduce my business and products to people. I know that it will take practice to feel at ease and getting out meeting people will do the trick.
Could you be living in fear within your business? Seems unlikely, right? Well actually many business women fear public speaking, cold calling, networking just for starters. Others procrastinate over accounts or legal matters for fear of getting it wrong, so they do nothing instead. Follow our 4 step process here: Are you Living in Fear?
What benefits do you get from networking?
I used to network in my previous businesses and I made some great contacts and friends, but it’s not just business, it’s a real social experience and its fun!
What was the reason that you decided to exhibit at The BWN?
I attended The BWN’s 1st networking meeting 6 years ago and I was hooked. The women were just like me! Intelligent, interested in similar subjects and so sociable, it felt more relaxed and less pressurized than other networking groups. So for me the BWN is always my starting place when I start a business, the girls give me the confidence to pursue my dreams.
What do you see the future holding for your Scentsy business?
I seek just happiness because when you’re happy, everything falls into place.
