SCENTSY CONSULTANTS!?

I am going to be eighteen in January, and am not cut out for working in retail or restaurants – I want to work one on one with individuals and build relationships with my own customer base. I have thought about thirty one, i have thought about mary kay and avon, but i really think that Scentsy is something that I don’t see hundreds of bumper stickers for in my area, and it has such a wide variety of products!!! I am graduating high school right after my birthday, and taking a semester off, so I am looking for something that I can really dive into after graduation, where I will be my own boss and make a profit. But I have a few questions…

1. what questions do i ask when trying to find a consultant to start up with?
2. what EXACTLY comes in the start up kit?
3. what are your favorite sales techniques? parties? business cards and ads? social networking?
4. how much can i actually make? i am looking for immediate profit (or as immediate as possible)
5. can you think of any consultant/sales companies that are out there that might yield more profit/customers than scentsy? i live in a fairly affluent area, and there are a lot of make up consultants and thirty one gifts is becoming more and more popular, so i’m trying to stay away from those. i’d like to be one of few in my area, so i can draw more customers.

Thank you!!!

    call scentsy and ask them all these questions. Its a sales item sold just like Avon, Tupperware… where you have a group of friends over to see the product and buy it. Also good item at craft fairs and home shows. Not an easy item for a young person to sell. You don’t know anyone at 18 and those you do know don’t have money to blow.

    Why are you pursuing retail sales when you say you are not cut out for it?

    I’m also not sure taking the contrarian point-of-view is the wisest either. It seems odd that instead of selling a product you KNOW people are buying, you would choose to invest in a product that has no customer base.

    As far as how I like to buy my cosmetic products go…I’m like most people. I buy them at the store or online. I hate those stupid parties, I hate it when my friends hit me up to buy their stuff just because they’re selling it, I hate when my neighbors or strangers knock on my door trying to sell me stuff. I like to shop AT MY CONVENIENCE, not someone else’s, and without being pressured.

    If you want immediate positive cash flow, go get a job where you get paid every two weeks for the hours you put in.

    P.S. My coworker tried to sell Avon for years and her entire inventory ended up in a basket in the staff lounge with a free sign on it. It literally sat there and sat there…she couldn’t GIVE it away.

    I would advise against investing in multi-level marketing schemes. See following links, but there are many more websites online that advise against this as well: http://www.falseprofits.com/MLM%20Lies.html, http://onpoint.wbur.org/2012/07/23/mary-kay. People very rarely make money in these schemes. The way they work is you are encouraged to buy a great deal of product – all out of your own pocket – you are rarely reimbursed for this product if you decide to quit, or if you are given a refund, people use peer pressure to prevent you from returning the product. The money isn’t made through sales; it’s made in how many people you can sign up to be underneath you to “sell” the products. In order to be successful, you end up working more hours than any full time job you could get, and you can end up alienating your friends and family. I would stay far away from these schemes. Do your research very thoroughly. Good luck!
