My story of how I got into direct selling. Read to the end to understand who I am with Pink Zebra.
- I have loved all types of home fragrance since I was 10 years old. I started out using candles a lot and buying beautifully designed candles just for decor in my room. Then as I got older, I started to collect different style candles as much as I was buying them to use. So throughout my life I’ve tried just about every brand there was on the market. I’ve used, candles, oils, plug-ins, you name it. I’ve spent a fortune in home fragrance in my lifetime. Then Scentsy came around and it was better than anything I’ve used. I was a faithful user of the brand for 5 years, and I decided to join for the small discount they offered at the beginning of direct sales with them. I grew a small number of customers who were a few friends & family. So after about 2 years of using Scentsy & selling to others, I noticed that the smell was declining a lot. The wax wasn’t lasting as long and I started smelling burnt wax. That’s how I would describe the smell after a day maybe 1 1/2 days.
- As a short time from that point went on, as I was walking the neighborhoods trying to hand out samples & brochures, I would come across some that would say “I don’t like Scentsy any more, it doesn’t last or smell good anymore, I want Pink Zebra”. My first thought was, “what a peculiar name”. Then they would say, if you start selling it, please come back and I will buy from you. I finished out my day handing out very few samples and asked anyone if they wanted me to place an order for them. They all declined but 3 of them, as they told me the same as I had heard from total strangers. “If I sold Pink Zebra Home Fragrance they would buy from me, that they didn’t want Scentsy any more”.
Now I’m not bashing anyone, or any company, as I once loved the products Scentsy sold, and I still like a few of them, but I no longer use them. We are all different, and like different things in this world.
With total strangers for 2 years asking me to sell Pink Zebra, that they would be a customer, and most of my friends and family asking me to sell Pink Zebra, I had to wonder why everyone loved Pink Zebra? I just knew there had to be something good about them if everyone wanted it.
So one evening I went out to pick up supper at a drive-thru, and this young man ran out to my window and asked if I had any beads. I told him no and gave him a card with my information on it, knowing full well he was wanting Pink Zebra “Sprinkles” because that’s what seemed to be what everyone was using now. I had never seen, nor heard of Pink Zebra or sprinkles before, but I was sure wondering what it was. For 2 years this went on and I did nothing about it. One reason was that I hadn’t cared about Scentsy any longer, and it put a bad taste in my mouth and my pocketbook because literally, I was just throwing my money in the trash, it just didn’t last long. So after I got my food I went home and after eating I had gotten on Facebook.
The first thing that popped up on my page was a Join special from Pink Zebra Home Fragrance & Decor! I thought to myself, this had to be a sign from God, because thinking about the last two years coming across total strangers asking for this “Pink Zebra”, I wasn’t listening. Then it was there on my page as if God said this is what I was to do. Without hesitant I Joined! I had never seen any products, never smelled any scents, I didn’t even look them up to see what I was getting myself into before I joined this company. I just felt a tug in my heart that this was a big sign from God, so I took a leap of faith and joined!
So when my join kit arrived, was I ever surprised and very excited! When I opened my box and pulled out the first item, it was an “Accent Shade”, that goes over the warmers called simmering lights. It makes a piece of home decor when you add the accent shade. “WOW”! I was so blown away and excited I have never seen anything so gorgeous and different. I saw Style, Class & Beauty right off the bat, so I’m already amazed at this company.
Then I opened the rest of the kit and started using “Sprinkles” and I could not believe one small tablespoon of their Sprinkles in their warmers lasted 7 straight days! Wow! Yes, I just couldn’t believe how long it lasted. I have my warmers on anywhere from 8 to 10 hours every day, and the scent smelled so good, so clean that the air was light and not heavy. The scent stayed consistent and I didn’t smell it heavy one day and then just melting wax the next. Or then you have to just throw it away after a day or two. I smelled the scent for all the 7 days. I was so excited about this I wanted to just scream with excitement at the world and tell them they no longer have to waste their money. I was hooked at this point. So now I am a Pink Zebra Home Fragrance & Decor Junkie, and loving every minute of it.
Stay tuned for my journey as it begins with this wonderful company that saved me.
