Shannon Grant is a high-energy, highly-motivated woman who started her own business so she could spend more time with her family and grew into a national award-winning business person with a sales team working for her.
“I have absolutely no experience, training, and absolutely nothing in my background that would indicate I was capable of starting and growing a team of this magnitude. I never thought in a million years I could lead a group of over 400 but the clarity of hindsight, I now see that every experience in my life has seasoned me into the woman I am now, as well as the one I aspire to be,” she said.
Shannon is a Star Director with the direct sales company, Scentsy Wickless Candles. She joined Scentsy in 2009. She has received the company’s Annual Mentor Award and Annual Sales Award for four consecutive years. Scentsy is a world-wide company best known for its decorative candles that run on a light bulb and has brached out into fragrances for home, body, laundry, car and other uses.
Scentsy markets through home parties and offers incentives to both its customers and sales representatives.
She offers this advice to women looking to start a business, whether full or part-time. “No matter how modest or audacious your goal is, your dreams belong to you and you alone have the ability as well as the responsibility to chase and achieve them. Of course, it will require work!”
Shannon was born in Goldsboro, NC and grew up in Henderson. She graduated from Ohio State in veterinary science and a minor in chemistry. She moved to Greenville in 2000 and work for a local pharmaceutical company as an analytical chemist. She left her full-time in 2005 to stay at home with her children.
“I soon ran out of rooms to paint and crafts to make. I needed a new hobby for me. I stumbled across Scentsy Wickless Candles while visiting my sister,” she recalls. She adds, “this was a blessing because this would now enable me to stay home with the children I love, homeschool and start a successful business.
