Scentsy’s mission, “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.”
Simplicity, Authenticity, and Generosity
The basis for Scentsy’s business philosophy comes from a quote by Albert Einstein -a quote that so inspired Orville as young man, he kept it posted on his bedroom wall:
“Try not to become a man of success. Rather, become a man of value. A successful man takes out of life more that he puts in. A man of value will give more that he receives.”
When they launched Scentsy in July of 2004, Orville and Heidi determined from the beginning to build their business around core values of Simplicity, Authenticity, and Generosity.
Scentsy intentionally keeps its product line and pricing structure simple so customers and Consultants alike can focus on sharing the party experience. Because the product and process are so easy to understand, it really does seem as if Scentsy products sell themselves. With no specialized experience required and no need to memorize complex features or costs, even new Consultants feel comfortable and confident in their ability right from the start.
Scentsy Consultants are encouraged to express their individuality and operate their businesses in ways that work best for their families and their lifestyles. Some Consultants focus on building local teams while others become experts in fundraisers or basket parties.
Scentsy has fostered an atmosphere in which there is no right or wrong way to grow a business, provided Consultants are giving more than they take to their customers, their teams, and to Scentsy.
The commitment to Authenticity resonates with Scentsy customers and party Hosts as well. And when they learn about Scentsy’s commitment to the DSA Code of Ethics, they know they’re doing business with a company they can trust.
From executives to employees to Consultants to vendors and suppliers, everyone at Scentsy activity practices contributing more that they take
In the early days when the entire company was run from an ocean shipping container on the family sheep farm, Scentsy’ first Consultants showed up to help pack and ship not only their own orders, but also the orders of other Consultants, volunteering to help each other and the Thompson’s in any way they could. The Thompsons were so moved by this selflessness, they were determined to make Scentsy succeed to make sure the Consultants succeeded.
Thus was born the secret to Scentsy’s amazing growth-and to becoming a successful Director (then Star Director, then SuperStar Director): the surest way to become successful with Scentsy is to do all you can to help everyone around you become successful.
Scentsy Touching Lives
What began as a simple idea has since become a thriving international business. Orville and Heidi -along with thousands of Scentsy Consultants and customers -have created something extraordinary that touches thousands of lives each day in profound ways.
Orville Thompson says it best:
“Through the power of our fragrances, the simplicity of our product line, and a deep sense of family at home and work, we find hope, vision, and an appetite for working hard as a team that binds us together. With Scentsy, we have each found something that speaks to and encourages the best in ourselves and each other.
