Stories of those who have taken full advantage of the Scentura Creations Opportunity.
In 1980, I was 20 years old, had only a high school education, and worked as a busboy in Las Vegas. When first introduced to the Scentura Creations Opportunity, I was told that if I was willing to work hard and have a good attitude, I would have a chance to make a six figure income.
People tried to talk me out of it and told me it was probably a scam, "Dont do it!" Those are the same people who, today, are now believers after they saw my success materialize! If you have a strong desire to succeed, and are willing to dedicate yourself and put in the time, it can turn into a long and rewarding career.

Having three children and secure careers in the medical field, this was quite a scary risk to us. Living in New York and then packing up and moving west to Texas with U-hauls, pets and kids in 1979 was not an easy task. As it turns out it was the best gamble we ever could have taken on ourselves.
It has been 33 years and after reaching financial security we have had the opportunity to develop and pass along the business to so many young people. It's not only our success, but watching young entrepreneurs become millionaires because of the business, because of their working hard and believing in themselves has been so rewarding to us.
Larry is and always has been our best cheerleader, sometimes believing in us more than we believed in ourselves. The business has changed our lives. Go for it and it will change yours too…
Seventeen years ago I was not in a good place. Tired of school and bouncing from one dead end job to another, I found myself, at the age of twenty four, living back with my parents, in debt, depressed and severely overweight. I drove a beat up car that I prayed would start each morning. I was not really sure where to turn or what I should do next.
In desperation, I answered an ad one day in the newspaper. It was the ad that literally changed my life. The ad which led me to the Scentura Creations Opportunity. In all honesty, I was not very good at this business in the beginning and it took me waaay too long. But from the very beginning I believed that if Larry Hahn was willing to take a chance on me and all he demanded in return was hard work and a good attitude, I was going to do whatever it took.
I always dreamed of being my own boss but I had no idea how to convert that dream into a reality before I found the Scentura opportunity. In the past seventeen years my entire life has completely changed. I built up my business and started passing along the opportunity that I had discovered to others who were as desperate as me.
In the process, I have not only made but saved millions of dollars. I own a beautiful home. I presently drive a Range Rover and a Porsche 911 4S convertible. I have been on vacations all over the world. Everything I dreamed of seventeen years ago has come true. The truth is that my reality is actually better than the dream.
It definitely has not always been easy, and it took a lot of hard work and sacrifice in the beginning, but it was all definitely worth it. The best thing is that The Scentura Opportunity now is as good if not better than it has ever been.
My advice to those who are starting, or considering starting their careers, is this...if you are willing to work hard and can keep a good attitude than this is for you. It won't be easy but it will be worth it. I promise. See you all at the top.
I found this opportunity in December of 1994. I was $40,000 IN DEBT, living with my mom, and had almost died twice in the previous two months. At this point I was far from a manager, let alone a business owner. However, with the Scentura opportunity anything was possible, and I was determined to use my work ethic and positive attitude to learn how make my dreams become a reality.
Within 7 weeks I was given the keys to my own business, and now 17 years later I have a thriving business with multiple offices and a wonderful family. I have been on over 100 vacations, recieved so many awards its hard to keep track, driven the finest cars, lived in the nicest homes, and have earned over $1 million in overides and $3 million in income.
When I started with the opportunity it was the only company that gave me a shot, and now that I have the skill to do anything I wish, I still choose this opportunity. Now I am working harder than ever. Each day I spend my time working from 7am to 7pm seven days a week on faith, family, health, career and education. Needless to say the balance is paying off and I'm at a time in my life where helping others and giving back to my community is my primary objective.

I started with the company when I was 19 years old. I had no experience, mostly worked in restaurants, and no college education. I had no idea what I was going to do with my life until I found this business.
The business changed not only my life, but also changed me as a person. I started having a better attitude as well as seeing things differently. Everything changed for the better.
The money and having nice things make it easier to enjoy life, but what I like most about being a part of this business is feeling and caring for other people. I have never found people other than my family that actually looked out for me and sincerely cared.
That feeling spread to me and in-turn made me want to care for others. That's my favorite part of having this opportunity, the Family Atmosphere.
I never would have been happy with my life, or had the attitude I have now if I had not found this business. I also wouldn't have the ability to look out for others if I didn't have this. I am grateful and one of the lucky ones, and I owe it all to everyone here. Thank you to everyone.

When I started this business two years ago, I was homeless and had nowhere to go. I was walking one day and I stepped on a piece of gum and didn't even notice until a lady told me there was something on my shoe. I looked down and it was a newspaper clipping.
I got started in Signal Hill, CA in Brian Warner and Erika Daway's office, where Kerry Brunson worked out of at the time. I received the best training anyone could ask for, and I'm extremely thankful for that.
Without this company, I don't know where I would be today. Brian and Erika have given me the experience and opportunity to make something of myself. I have seen how this business works first hand, and if you do this right, you will become successful!
Scentura Creations is my family! Thank you Larry Hahn, we all love you for giving people like me a second chance at becoming somebody in the world.

I started this business in California with Brian Warner and Kerry Brunson, two special people who have changed my life by sharing with me this once and a lifetime, wonderful opportunity. It has given me hope for having an incredible life.
Before I started this business, I always thought I was going to be stuck in a regular job, being just an ordinary employee somewhere, broke and always struggling.
I've always wanted to travel and see the world, and this business has given me the opportunity to do so. I've been in over 10 different states and have seen so many different beautfiul sceneries.
Not only am I no longer a regular employee, but now I'm the boss! Who would have thought that a guy like me, who never graduated high school, would own his own business?! I'm on my way to enjoying a life of success and financial freedom that this incredible business has to offer.
A special thanks to the best divisional manager every, Kerry Brunson, for not giving up on me, and for his support and help. Thank you Kerry! I also want to thank my best promoting owner, role model, and friend Brian Warner. Thank you for being there for me when no one else would, for not giving up on me, taking me in, and guiding me to success!
I could not forget LARRY HAHN, thank you for making all this happen for me. Without you my dreams would only stay a dream, but now they are becoming a reality! I love this opportunity!

When I started with the Scentura Creations opportunity I was 24 years old. I was a single parent with a 2 year old daughter. I had been to college but never obtained my degree. I started the business with a wholesale distributor and ran with the Opportunity.
I worked in that office for 7 1/2 weeks and then helped run the location for 1 year. I found my current partner and opened our own business. We now have 2 beautiful children and we're LIVING.
We have been in the top 10 in the bulletin ever since we returned from our vacation in Maui, Hawaii. We have passed the opportunity to others to open their own business also. ("We're changin' the World Craig, the World!")
We love our Opportunity and we cannot thank Larry Hahn and the rest of Scentura Creations enough for changing our lives. Special Thanks to Donny Zinkin and Holly Jacobetz.

I have to be honest, this is the best opportunity that I have ever been given. I was 21 years old when I started this business. I have a high school education and I dropped out of college. With no were to turn, I answered an ad that changed the direction of my life.
I started with Richard Greenley's office. He taught me the business from the inside and out. This business is willing to work with you if you're honest and you have the right attitude!! I don't think I will ever leave this business.
I want to thank everyone who's supported myself and my parnter Farzad Ghiassi: Richard Greenley, Evan Salvador, Elizabeth Gelb, Donny Zinkin, Holly Jocobetz, Marc and Carol Schottenfeld, and last but not least, Mr. Larry Hahn for the opportunity!! See you at the top!!
I started in this business 9 years ago, almost to the day today as I write this. Similar story.... answered an ad. I started learning this business. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I learned how to become above average. I learned how to change my attitude.
9 years ago I was very negative. This changed everything for the better. Everything they promised me came true.
I've been running my own business in Denver with my partner Iris Flores. We both drive new cars (Audi A4, BMW x5, and Infiniti G35). We are both independent. I live in $240,000 condo. Iris is in the process of buy her first home this year.
Best of all we get to help other people with this amazing opportunity. Our promotions are buying new cars. WHAT A THRILL!!! Thanks Larry Hahn for making this opportunity all possible.

Nine years ago, before I started working for myself with the Scentura opportunity, I did what everyone else told me to do. I was told to go to school, get a degree, get an internship while in school, then get a real job with a "steady" salary and retire off of a 401k plan.
I did all those things. My first day working at a real job as a software engineer, I got laid off.
I was discouraged, upset, and felt like I wasted my time. Then I answered an ad in the paper and found an opportunity to work for myself with no investment from me. After 9 years,the Scentura opportunity has completely changed my life.
I went from being $30,000 in debt, paid off in 2 years, to now having lot of money saved and invested. I went from driving a 1994 Toyota Corolla wrapped in duct tape to having a choice each day of 'Which car should I drive... my BMW hard top convertible or my Lexus Sedan?' I went from living in a run down house where I rented a room with other college students to living in what most would call a resort community.
Every year keeps getting better and better. With hard work, commitment, and loyalty, Scentura will see to it that you get into business for yourself and never have to worry about security ever again. Thank you Larry Hahn and Scentura!

My name is Ricki Zuckert & I am a proud Business owner!
I was introduced to the company & the brilliant opportunity back in 1989. I was a young girl who had graduated high school in 1987 & was working a full time job as a dental assistant while attending a local junior college at night attempting to earn my AA degree. You might say I was following the standard encouraged path for a typical 19-20 year old.
In my pursuit to "do the right thing," I met my husband. While dating, we were introduced to an amazing Business Owner. He shared his unique business model with us & encouraged us to see it for ourselves. We created a plan to do just that by celebrating our honeymoon in the Bay area where "Mr. Hahn" resided.
While there, we were honored to have met Mr. Kerry Brunson, to view his operation & learn more. We were awe struck! Needless to say, my married life began as did my adult working life upon the return to my home town of Phoenix. We were "in."
I have been blessed to be in business now for myself, for nearly 22 years! That is a tremendous accomplishment by anyone!! I never did complete my secondary education. I instead took the path most would consider daring, less chosen, & the one that meant my success would be based on my desire, efforts, & the knowledge I would learn as I grew up. All on me!!
I was never threatened by those facts, never influenced by the skeptical & guarded. I reveled in the honor to be a small Business Owner here in the amazing US of A. I recognized free enterprise and entrepreneurship. I have freedom to determine my pay scale, & to make my own decisions & choices. I am proud to pass on the opportunity to others who have the same qualities & feelings as I. I make a difference to others every single day.
I am a positive & happy woman. I have 2 gorgeous children I am raising & a beautiful husband & partner of nearly 22 years!!! I am a role model to many. I contribute to society & share the gifts I have learned & earned from SCENTURA CREATIONS!
Thank God :)
My whole background has been Mortgages and Real Estate. I was in that industry for 11 years. I thought I had a career with what I was doing.
In 2007 the market took a turn for the worst and left many in that industry unemployed. I was sadly one of those people. After searching continuously for another position, I found nothing. Either I wasn't qualified for the position, or I was over qualified.
After looking for employment for an entire year, I ran into an ad that would give me the opportunity to become a business owner without any investment other than my time and hard work. I'm very fortunate that I was able to learn from two of the best, Evan and Liz in San Jose, CA.
I opened my first business in Houston, TX. Never once did I spend a dime to relocate to Houston. I recently moved to Arizona where I currently own my business.
I found the Scentura Creations opportunity three years ago, I love what it has given me, and I haven't looked back. I am able to provide for my two children with out ever thinking twice, and am able to pass on this opportunity to others, which is extremely rewarding!
Thank you Evan and Liz, and especially Mr. Hahn!!
Before I was fortunate enough to find this opportunity, I worked dead-end, nine-to-five jobs. In April 2002, I joined the United States Marine Corps as an Infantry Men. In my four years in the Marines, I did three combat tours to Iraq. In 2003, I was in Baghdad where I was awarded a Purple Heart medal for wounds received in action. In 2004, my unit was deployed to Fallujah and in 2005 Ramadi.
When I ended my active service in 2006, I thought with my military background I would get the best job offers. Instead, I found myself in the middle of a recession, surviving by any means necessary.
Fortunately, I stumbled upon the Scentura Creations opportunity that gave me a shot at owning my very own business. I learned from Evan and Liz in San Jose, CA... how to run and operate a business from square one, the foot work, all the way up to sitting behind the desk and making boss decisions.
I relocated, with no out-of-pocket expense, to Houston, TX to open my first business. I was then invited to a career builders seminar in Atlanta, GA and was fortunate enough to see Scentura Creations' offices where the product is manufactured and bottled.
After a full year in Houston, I relocated to Arizona where I currently own my business. Since I found this opportunity, I've been traveling all over, and I love my career.
We work hard and play even harder. The Vegas meetings are awesome! Even though I love the places I've been to with this business, nothing compares to the feeling you get when you see other people take advantage of the opportunity and grow as business people. It's like a natural high, expressing and passing on this once in a lifetime opportunity that was presented to me. Thanks Larry!
