Make it Your New Years Resolution to Join Scentsy

untitledDowntown Frame up recommends its readers to join Scentsy in the year 2017. Despite the fact that multi level marketing strategies (sometimes called pyramid schemes) can be challenging for some of the independent sales consultants they employ, many independent sales consultants absolutely thrive in this environment and go on to make a great deal of money in the process.

The basic strategy is simple. There are two basic ways that an independent sales consultant can earn money in this process. The first is through actual sales to customers. This is often accomplished by holding Scentsy parties where the independent sales consultant will invite friends, neighbors or co-workers to attend and experience Scentsy products first hand.

Recruit New Sales Consultants to Join Scentsy

However, the second and far more lucrative method for an independent sales consultant to earn money through Scentsy is to recruit new independent sales consultants. According to the rules of a multi level marketing strategy, any independent sales consultant who recruits a new independent sales consultant will recieve a commission. These commissions can start to add up into serious money after those newly recruited independent sales consultants recruit new independent sales consultants because at that point another commission is earned. This process continues on making the people higher up the pyramid more and more money.

The reason why multi level marketing or pyramid schemes tend to get a bad reputation is that not everyone thrives in this environment. According to simple mathematics the number of new recruits needed to keep the pyramid going eventally exceeds the entire population of the earth after a few generations of recruiting. All that said, there can be no denying that some people actually do make a lot of money in the process but it definitely requires a great deal of effort and hustle.

Fellow Passengers to the Grave

In Stave One of Charles Dickens’ novella “A Christmas Carol” Ebenezer Scrooge is confronted by his nephew Fred who comes to his office on Christmas Eve to invite him to dinner at his house on Christmas Day. Mr. Scrooge rebuffs his nephew’s invitation rudely expressing his opinion that Christmas is a “humbug” or something not worthy of his attention. In reaction, Fred embarks on a diatribe expressing his opinion to the contrary. Specifically he says,

… I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round — apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that — as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.  And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!

It goes without saying that Mr. Scrooge remained unconvinced by Fred’s argument that Christmas was in fact worthy of his uncle’s attention. Scrooge would have none of it. Fred might as well have been trying to convince his uncle to join Scentsy.

After some back and forth Fred eventually left his uncle’s office unsuccessful in his attempt to get him to accept his invitation. He left, however, in a state of good humor which is of course Fred’s nature. Later, Mr. Scrooge leaves his office for his home where he will eventually have a date with destiny. No gentle reader, he does not join Scentsy but he just might end up joining the human race.
