The Rundown on my Jobs

18 Mar

In case you all don’t know, I finished school and am now a working medical transcriptionist! I usually type at night when the girls go to bed, which is why I am such a stickler on bedtimes. I like routine, so you will rarely see me out and about because it will interfere with nap times and bedtimes and such.

I also started selling Scentsy…which I LOVE. And in case you don’t know what Scentsy is, it is a collection of wax and wax warmers that operate off of a low-wattage light bulb. There are over 80 scents to choose from, as well as numerous fashionable warmers to go with any decor.

I am having so much fun selling it, it’s ridiculous. Last month was my first month selling Scentsy, and I was aiming for $500 in sales. I thought that seemed a little steep, but I figured I would try it anyway. I ended the month at $2650.00!! Can you believe it?? This stuff sells itself! I am on track for this month too…I will reveal my total at the end of the month but I am hoping to surpass last month’s goal!
Anyway, I became a fan of it after I smelled it in a photography studio. I decided to host a party and I loved the stuff so much, I decided to become a consultant. I figured I didn’t have much to lose. I did not have to invest a lot to get started, just $99. I thought that if I didn’t enjoy selling it, I could just use the testers of wax that you get and burn them in my warmer. Why not?? Well, it has proved so far to be a great little business for me. I am having fun..AND making money. It’s not really like working when you get to go to parties! Truthfully though, I haven’t had to do a whole lot of home parties either. People have been having basket parties for me. A basket party is where they take the scent testers and order forms and get the orders. All I have to do is put the orders in online, and when the product comes in, I bag it up for the hostess and give it back to her to deliver. So, really, my hostesses are doing almost all of the work for me. Thank you guys! šŸ™‚

I have been working on an order tonight and here is what my house looks like on days I get a UPS shipment in.

I do have a Scentsy website www.amberbarber.scentsy.us if you are curious about the product. You can order directly online and have it sent to your house if you would like. I promise, once you smell this product, nothing else compares!

And above all, my #1 job is being a wife and mommy! It is the most rewarding out of all. I stay-at-home with my girls, so I get the joy of watching my girls grow. Macyn is getting her second tooth and just learned to crawl..although she still scoots some too. Addison is becoming less of a baby every day. I am so sad to see her grow up so fast, but I am also delighted in the progress she makes. We named her Addison Joy for a reason, she truly is a joyful little thing…and fills my heart with more joy than I could ever have hoped for!

So, I will try to make more frequent blog updates, which will probably be on the progress and activities of the girls!

    Scentsy got really big while we were in Boise. (The owners live there) Most of my friends sell it now. I have so many Scentsy items I rarely use…only when company comes.
