Firstly, you need to operate in a large market that is expanding. You could be the best in the business, but if that business is contracting or is just going out of vogue, you are going to have to work really hard to attract new customers in order to maintain your level of business, let alone to increase your turnover.
Orville Thompson was first introduced to Scentsy at a home show in Salt Lake City Utah in 2004. He took home some testers and his family was intrigued by the different scents. Within months Orville and his wife purchased Scentsy from Collette. The Company was brought to Idaho. In 2009 the Direct Selling Association awarded Scentsy its highest honor available to a young company. The Rising Star Award for its growth and commitment to ethical business practices.
My very good (and handsome, smart, and fun-loving) friend was 37 when his 15-year relationship ended. After a reasonable mourning period, he dated a 41-year-old woman steadily and happily for at least two years. That relationship ended when she relocated to another state for her career. About six months later, he began dating a woman just one year his junior (instead of a 20-year-old with a belly ring) and eventually proposed to her. They remain very happily married three years later.

2) Forbid yourself from making the following statements (I know women who started at 25): “I can’t do that because I’m older now,” “Well, it comes with age, I guess,” “I always wanted to be a __________, but it’s too late.” In other words, refuse to let your age stop you from doing anything.
As you can see, owning a versatile piece of furniture can save you time, money and space. That special summer camp trunk may one day travel with your child off to college, and the cedar trunk in your living room may one day grace the living room of your grandchildren chalk full of memories.
