The Scentsy story, starts out like many home based businesses. Begins with an idea and grows beyond your dreams. The people behind the story makes Scentsy unique. Orville Thompson was 10 years old when he presented an idea to his father to raise sheep. His father had enough belief in his son, and allowed him to take on this opportunity. Orville Thompson showed he was worthy of this challenge, by earning money from his flock through auctions and to youth for community programs. He was definitely a young entrepreneur with huge dreams. After high school he soon married. He went into business with his mother-in-law developing a car wax formula and selling it at various trade shows. This business plan worked well for awhile, but, Orville new there had to be a better way. He continued to pursue his dreams and found himself in debt because of a failed business venture. He did not give up, he had a strong belief that this was the path he was meant to follow. He again attempted to do direct his energy towards building a business from a dream. Many of you can relate to this, also, many quit due to lack of desire to reach their why. We are all born with the ability to dream, fear is allowed to get in the way of many of our paths. Where do you want your path to lead you, if you could remove the fear that stands in the way? Because of Orville Thompson, Scentsy has grown to be one of the most booming direct selling companies,in the industry. Scentsy is defined as a safe, wick less alternative to traditional candles, through the use of a warmer. It has been proven that particular scents evoke memories and continue to be used with elderly with Alzheimer's disease, as well as other aroma therapy techniques. Familiar scents bring fond memories of days long ago. That is what drew Orville and his family to this particular product. Orville's wife, Heidi became an integral part in launching this product line as a party plan company. Their mission statement states; "To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity, selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses, and Inspire the Soul." A great mantra to live by, for anyone in the direct selling business. Like any new business venture, it started out rocky. Also, requiring a lot of hard work and researching the best business model to suit their company. The next few years continued to be a struggle. Orville and his family, did not lose sight of his dream. In 2009, prior to the company's fifth anniversary, Scentsy was given the first Rising Star Award. This award is given to a company that has shown outstanding growth and has proven excellence following the Direct Selling Association Code of Ethics. Orville Thompson had plenty of opportunities to quit, why didn't he? Ultimately, we all find ourselves in the same situation. That crossroad, success or failure, since failure appears to be closer we opt for that road. The inner belief in self and that we ARE worth it, it difficult to imagine. In any multi-level marketing company, we are asked to define our "WHY". Your "Why" should overcome all fears, that produce themselves as stumbling blocks. If your "WHY" is greater than your fears, I would like to show you how to achieve your dreams, and help you reach your"WHY"!
