What I’m about to say will probably earn me a round of hisses and boos – but I’m hoping that after I explain myself, you’ll forego the rotten tomatoes.
I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, and I’ve decided to retire from Scentiments.
I believe in my products, I’ve had a ton of fun, but I’ve reached the point where my life is so full, I must cut back in order to keep everything in balance. Especially after reading Julie B. Beck’s conference address and listening to her inspired words that “mothers who know do less.” I’m doing a lot with my writing these days, with new book ideas, Families.com and helping others with their manuscripts, and that’s what I really want to be doing with my time, when I’m not being a wife and mother. I’m going to miss Scentiments but I have the ability to start the company up again at any time. A year down the road, if I decide to restart it, it’s done.
I so much appreciate all the support you’ve given me in this endeavor. You’ve truly cheered me on and made my business a success. But it’s time for me to find success in other arenas, and I know you’ll continue to cheer me on in that as well.
