No such thing as Saturation

In response to a long private message about not wanting to join because she is being told that Scentsy is Saturated!! Scentsy is NOT saturated. I am here to tell you that in direct sales, unless you are servicing 100% of the people in your town, state, country, then there is room for growth. If everyone in your neighborhood already uses your product, then go to another neighborhood. If everyone in your city is using your product, then go to people in your state. But because Scentsy is a very new product (10 years in the USA and only 5 years in Canada), the market has a ton of potential for growth before it reaches anywhere near the saturation point. As an example, say there are well over 40 Scentsy consultants in a town of 10,000. Each of these consultants, are working their business in a way that is productive for them. Some are active, some only buy for themselves and family, others are working it like a full time job. I can promise you that all 10,000 people in that community are not aware or even using the Scentsy or Velata...Yet! There are people out there who would buy from you, because you are you! Only you can provide that excellent customer service. That is what makes you so special! That is why, if you are interested in selling Scentsy.... You should! The benefit of people knowing what Scentsy is, is that they want it. We do not have enough consultants to provide for the demand of customers that are out there. I run into people EVERY DAY that when asked if they have a consultant say to me.... no I NEED one, I don't know what happened to mine or mine quit or even better yet, What is Scentsy? If you allow yourself to have a mindset that you can't do the business or that everyone else is doing it for you.... then you will not get past that. But if you have a mindset that you can get around any obstacle (like I did) then you WILL succeed!!!

Meeting a Millionaire of Change

I have met and made friends with millionaires and also people strapped by the demands of everyday living. I have eaten with and shared conversations with some amazingly brilliant, loving and talented people. I have traveled to places I never dreamed of going and I have been able to help support my family right from the comforts of my own home. I can take walks in the sunshine during the day, I help others achieve their own dreams and watch them flourish ... yes it truly has been a catalyst for some amazing and incredible changes and living!! My Universe consists of love, gratefulness, abundance, sharing, achievement and yes, Scentsy!

What a day!!

I am drawn to blog today!  I don't come on here and spill my feelings often but I felt the need today.

Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement for the excitement, love and inspiration I have felt today.  Not only is this the day I was born, I turned 44... containing not only one of my lucky numbers but 2 ;) Not sure how it is that we come to have a lucky number but I chose 4 along time ago and it has stuck very well throughout the years.  So from the break of dawn this morning I have responded to over 500 wishes, blessings and fun "Happy Birthday" messages on my Facebook profile page.  I was sang to at least 4 times in different octaves and styles.  I was treated to lunch and continue to receive phone calls from my loved ones. What an amazing day... right>?  Well it gets even better... well not sure I can beat being born, but I'll try.

Today I conducted a training call through our home office to ALL of the Scentsy consultants in the company.  I trained on Facebook Parties. About a year ago, I started the process of getting this out to the masses.  I ran up against some pretty hard walls and was shot down a couple times too.  I collected the training information and put it together in a way to be presented and taught.  Finally in January of this year I was asked to present the training at our Leadership Retreat in Cancun (you all remember the trip they lost all my luggage?), I was honored and beside myself.  Well today was the final piece.  It went out to the masses in one of the most attended live training's we have had.  I have been overwhelmed with love and support and encouragement that I have inspired them to make videos, to have parties and to just step out of their comfort zone.  I couldn't feel more proud!!!  or could I?? This is where the frosting gets put on the cake.

3 years ago, I fell upon a training called The Mind Aware Series put on and hosted by Dana Wilde.  Well you all know I have studied her Train Your Brain, but did you know it started when I met her through The Mind Aware?  It was 24 hours of interviews with leading industry trainers.  I feel in love with the information I was learning and quickly learned the power that knowledge had. I told myself 3 years ago, while listening to the interviews with people like Mary Christensen, Casey Eberhart, Julie Anne Jones, Deb Bixler, Lindsey Baigent and so many more, that I could do that and even if I couldn't I would love to speak on her show.  It was a passing thought and dream that apparently I put out into the universe......  3 years later, I, yes me, am going to be a guest, interviewed by Dana Wilde on Season 5 of The Mind Aware Season.  I am not sure if Dana even knew of this dream since I don't believe I ever shared it... matter of fact I am not sure I shared it with anyone.

So not only is it my birthday and not only did I give an awesome training company wide, but I also get to launch Season 5 of The Mind Aware Series for Direct Sellers!!! I am beyond grateful, blessed, appreciative and truly feeling loved........  Thank you God for this most amazing day!!!  xoxo

Somebody Pinch Me!!!

What is BNS?

Someone asked me the other day, "Why did you pick the name Beauty n' Scents & More and what is The BNS Network?"  Well my answer is easy.  When I first started out I was selling Avon, hence the Beauty and then added Scentsy, hence the Scents and then they added Velata, hence the & More lol.....  The issue came when I decided to no longer sell Avon.  By then the name had already become known and I wasn't prepared to spend alot of money changing it on all my marketing materials and website and such.  Luckily, they came out with Layers by Scentsy which incorporated Beauty (bath & body) very well.  Now you ask about The BNS Network.  BNS stands for Beauty n' Scents, however Beauty n' Scents was only incorporating my Scentsy Family business and I have so much more than that going on.  I'm a Transformational Coach and have Direct Sales training, Vlogs and my many adventures in my own business/personal life on YouTube that my channel started taking a life of it's own.  This is when The BNS Network was born. It encompasses my world, my journey and my adventures.   I love these questions, so keep them coming!! So I founded The BNS Network and it grows bigger and better everyday.  You will find information about my Scentsy business on my Beauty n' Scents page and my coaching and inspiration on my BNS Network page.  Such fun things are happening all around.

How to make Edie's Spaghetti Sauce - Edie's Recipe

Ever wonder how I make my Spaghetti Sauce in the crock pot?  Well today is your lucky day....I am going to share with you the exact science to Edie's Secret Sauce!!!
I would like to share with you first that I am not a recipe kind of girl.  I like to throw stuff together and hope it tastes good!!!  Seriously!  LOL So for me to share a recipe is like trying to tell you how electricity works. It is however possible to at least share with you the ingredients that make it taste amazing!  

So here is a shopping list for you:
1 Large can of Diced Tomatoes with Basil
1 Large can of plain Tomato Sauce
1 Large can of Crushed Tomatoes
1 package of mini Pepperonis
1 package of crumbled sausage
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup of diced onions
1 package of meatballs

Spices include but aren't limited to:
All spice
garlic salt
onion salt
crushed peppers

I let all this cook on high in the crock pot for 4 hours then simmer on low till I serve.
Serve over al dente spaghetti  ;)
