How Alisa DeSaer doubled her gross wholesale value and personal retail volume with one text!
Alisa joined Scentsy in September 2017 and saw early success with vendor events and craft shows! She used those events to collect customer contacts. This process allowed her to earn incentives and her Director title after only 13 months of being a consultant. What caught my attention, with Alisa, was her recent success using Project Broadcast and how she doubled her Gross Wholesale Value (GWV) and Personal Retail Value (PRV) with one text.
Build your hobby into an income before you need the income.
Walk me through the step-by-step process that you went through to get to where you are today. What was the first thing you did? Next?
I stay consistent with (the ideas of) what gets rewarded gets repeated. I provide mentorship and training to our growing group and (continue) to be a student of the business. I understand the aspects of how to maximize commissions and make the structure work for me.
Staying consistent with what gets (me) rewarded (is what) gets repeated.
How long were you running the business before you started seeing a profit? How did you live through those first few months/years?
I am not sure I am seeing a true livable income (yet), however, an extra $600 – $1,800 per month certainly helps fix money issues and pays for the extras. I reinvested in my business and event stock/setup for the first 3 years but really only needed the first year and a half. I still work a full-time job to pay the bills, but it is mindless, so I can use all my extra time on my Scentsy business. I walked away from my part-time job about 6 months into my Scentsy business (because) I was earning enough in commissions to support what I would have earned in tips (on the weekends) working as a bartender/server.
The corporate ladder is building someone else's tree. Make sure you water your tree first.

What is your favorite Project Broadcast Campaign?
I like to simply schedule posts. It lets me stay ahead so my business hours can stay open. Scheduled texts do the work for me, so I have the flexibility to spend my time prioritizing my family, self, and business.
