Recession-proof your job as an Independent Scentsy Consultant

Direct Sales Offer the Best Job During a Recession

by Independent Scentsy Consultant Jes Russo

Unemployed and looking for work? Tired of the 9-5 cubicle life and want more from life? Still haven’t found your dream job?

If you want a recession-proof job, first think direct sales. Then think Scentsy.

Scentsy is an amazing company that continues to re-invent themselves. If you’ve ever wanted to join a direct sales company, Scentsy is your answer. Hands down.

Scentsy is a Godsend to me and my family and absolutely the best $99 I have ever spent. Yep, only $99 to get started and there is no need to keep track of (or even buy extra) inventory. I choose my own hours and work around what’s most important in my life – my family.

How did I not hear about the Scentsy business opportunity sooner?

While Scentsy is growing by leaps in bounds and have recently gone INTERNATIONAL, Independent Scentsy Consultants are not joining as fast in West Virginia as in neighboring states … And we could use your help!

And there are opportunities everywhere. has team members from several states – and we don’t have to live close for Rob & me to help you start and really grow your own business.

Check out more details about joining Scentsy as an Independent Consultant then let me know if you would like more information. Just leave a comment below with any questions or email us at

From Part-Time Fun to Full-Time Success!

Honestly, I started out to have fun and make a little extra money. As a stay-at-home mom, my kids are my top priority. Rob and I – with God’s help all along the way – are determined to make it work. But living on one modest income in today’s society can be tough. Building my own business as an Independent Scentsy Consultant is a great way to make that extra money we need.

Now, Rob is involved with the business and even our kids like to unpack the boxes, sniff the merchandise and help us with deliveries. Scentsy truly can be a family affair!

Why Find Your Why?

So if you have thought about becoming an Independent Scentsy Consultant, I encourage you to find your why before signing up.

Would you like a little extra spending money each month? Do you desire to make enough to pay off that credit card debt or cover the new family car payment? Or, like me, you might want to have a job that enables you to work when you want – how often you want – around your family’s schedule. Perhaps you want to escape the 9-5 cubicle life and want to start your own business. Or, you may be unemployed and instead of chasing another dead-end job lead you want to create your own successful career path.

Once you have your why in mind, everything else will fall into place. And when times are tough, your why will keep you going.

Once you have your why and you want to know for sure if the how answer is “Scentsy,” contact us today. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

    My ‘why’ for starting my own business, which is delightfully home based (though not Scentsy) is that coaching people was the best way to use my gifts of encouragement to help others achieve something great AND be free to see/help my kids grow up!

    I am assuming that Scentsy products are a line of perfume? Home based businesses are great and require less start up fees than a brick and mortor type of business.

      Thanks for your comment, Joyce. Scentsy started with wickless wax warmers, a safe alternative to candles. But they have grown rapidly, taking the love for fine fragrance and expanding to solid perfume, room sprays, lotions and other personal care products, laundry products, scented greeting cards and more!

      But your initial question reminds us that many still haven’t heard about Scentsy and confirms the need for a basic “what is Scentsy” section on this site. Look for it soon!

    Thanks for sharing. I live in Idaho where Scentsy is located and absolutely love it!

    Being your own boss certainly has its pros. I’ve wanted to be an entrepreneur for the exact reasons you described since I was in high school and have finally made that happen. Good luck with Scensty!

    Never heard of Scensty till reading your posts. I believe we can control our own income and this sounds like a great opportunity for those who are ready for this product.

    Direct sales gives an opportunity if you believe in the product which it sounds like you do. I had not heard of Scentsy either but am involved in direct sales in the health and wellness industry. For me it was a matter of quality of life and why I chose the company I did. My Why had to do with my health and lack thereof and makes all the difference in how I will move forward. Now I’m healthier and have no regrets.

    Sounds lie a wonderful opportunity, Jes! Thanks for sharing the information and how it has become part of your family!

    I have a specific way that I want to live my life, where I have the freedom to be with my family and in my community as much as possible. Being in a 9-5 wouldn’t allow that!

    Great post Jes and what great encouragement for all of us! I love how companies like Scentsy are helping families reach their dreams, all the while being able to work around what is most important to them, their families! Thanks for sharing!

    You make such great points, Jes. Having your own business is the only way to go, especially if you have kids at home. Even if you were okay with leaving your kids, it’s hard to work, pay a sitter, and still have any money or quality time left at the end of the day. Scentsy looks like a great company and they have very nice looking products. I’m glad you’ve found something that helps you live the dream!
