    Alexandra and Scott WickfreeInternational Scentsy Team Leaders and Business Mentors, were recently revealed finalists for the Alice Kalilimoku Shining Star AwardScentsy President Heidi Thompson announced the surprise live on stage at Scentsy's first ever global convention in Anaheim, USA.  Heidi explained to the 8000 strong Scentsy Audience that this was the first year the award had been given on a global scale, with the six finalist being picked from over 110,000 consultants.

    Orville Thompson, CEO of Scentsy, joined Heidi on Stage and explained what the award was about.  "The Shining star is an award that goes to the person who best represents our mission to Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses and Inspire the Soul.  These leaders LIVE Scentsy!" he said "Through their hard work, versatility and heart, our Shining Stars have reimagined their lives and the lives of others with Scentsy. Every day they share their spirit and help others do the same."  Alexandra, who had to go on stage alone to collect the nomination as Scott was looking after Theia back at the hotel said, "I was so sad my partner in crime couldn't join me on stage for the nomination; then again if he had I would have cried as i was so shocked to even be nominated.  To think our peers, from inside our Emerald All Stars team and in the wider Scentsy family wrote in letters of nomination blows me away.  We love what we do and get huge joy from helping others achieve the success we enjoy in the Scentsy business so to be finalist for the company's top award is simply icing on a wonderful cake".

    Stage time for 2018 Shining Star finalists in front of 8000 Scentsy consultants

    As Shining Star Finalists, Scentsy treated The Wickfrees like royalty for the convention.  This included a back stage meeting with keynote speaker and three-time Olympic Cyclist Kristen Armstrong, a special tag for their lanyard (and for future years) and the chance to talk on stage with the other finalists in front of 8,000 consultants.  "Meeting an Olympian and holding a real Olympic Medal is one of my top Scentsy moments ever.  Kristen just walked over, handed me this Gold Medal from 2012 Rio Games and said here take some pictures with it.  ! As a sportsman myself i know the dedication, drive and sacrifices it takes to be the top of your game so i was blown away by how humble Kristen is and by the weight of that medal, it's truly something incredible to achieve" said Scott.

We want to thank everyone who took the time to write in and the awards panel for feeling we were deserving finalists.  Becca and Kallie were my choice to receive this award and embody everything this award stands for.  Congratulations to you both'

  2. Scentsy Director Boot Camp

    Posted on

     I am a Scentsy Director

    Boot Camp Graduate

    I just returned from a trip stateside where I became the first ever European director to attend and graduate from Scentsy's Director Boot Camp.  This camp aims to give Directors the tools and skills they need to become the best leaders in the company.  The training camp took place at Scentsy Commons, our purpose-built company headquarters in Boise Idaho, which i have always wanted to see.  It was the trip of a lifetime and much fun was had and friends made - we did even manage to learn a few useful things as well.

    I arrived in Boise a few days early and had the most fun hanging out with another Scentsy Star Director, Becky and her family.  We visited Table Rock Mountain and her wonderful children introduced me to Displaicble Me and White Chocolate Popcorn, Root Bear Floats and Cinnamon Roll.  Becky also threw a lovely dinner for me and the Australian Directors who were attending and we were surprised to find Orville and Heidi Thompson (Scentsy CEO and President) were there.  It felt like a great family party.

    Next day we started boot camp all dressed as super heros to mark the fact that our Boot Camp was nearly cancelled in August but we had to rescued it.  We cracked on with lessons in leadership, balancing working from home and having a life and enjoyed some talks from several succesful Scentsy Superstar Directors.  It was inspiring to here their stroies of success and to know the lifechanging incomes we could all be earning if we keep working hard.

    Day two included a visit to the place Scentsy consultants worldwide refer to as THE FARM.  This is the place the billion dollar direct sales company was born and where the first Scentsy bars were first poured by hand and wrapped in clingfilm.  We got to sit in Orville's office and see the boardroom with its car seat chairs and old door as a makeshift table.

    We enjoyed a wonderful graduation dinner and I was really excited to spend some quality time again with Elaine and Leon Thompson (Orville's mum and dad) who we met in Las Vegas and had so much fun with on our Med Cruise Incentive trip in 2013.  This picture celebrates me being the first european graduate.

    This trip was everything i had hoped for and much much more.  I have made some brilliant new friends with directors from the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia.  We are all very excited for a reunion in Cancun, Mexico when we met in January for our Leadership retreat.  I also got to star in a new Scentsy Corporate video whilst there but i will tell you more about that in the next blog ;-).

    Scentsy UK - A Home Business Success Story

    Scentsy launched into the UK, Germany and Ireland three years ago this week. Scott and I were the first Scentsy European consultants and have worked hard over the last three years to build a successful work from home business.

    Scentsy has bought so much to our lives including lots of great all expenses paid trips to Las Vegas, San Francisco, Barcelona, Roma, Florence, Cannes and Mexico, not forgetting we are off to Greece all expenses paid in two weeks time.

    We have also learnt new skills including building a succesful business working online, becoming a business mentor to our team, mastering how to present a house party, offering great customer service plus many more. We have also earned the prestigous Annual Mentor Award 2011/2012 and 2013/2014. In 2013 we also became Grace Adele consultants (Scentsy's fashion brand) and became the first Grace Adele Trendsetters for Europe.

    Thanks to being a scentsy consultant  i am a stay at home mum and can fit my home business around my five month old daughter, Theia and also help my 16 year old daughter work through her school exams. I would love to help more people become stay at home mums and leave the work a day world behind, if you are interested in becoming a stay at home mum and starting your own scentsy business CLICK HERE to contact me.
