Michelle Schrock is a vivacious and goofy but no-nonsense mother of two; she is the quintessential military spouse and very dedicated to her United States Marine Corps husband, their family and her Scentsy business. She is the ideal entrepreneur for the Scentsy line of wickless candles and it's very clear within minutes of speaking to her that she really stands behind her business and its products.
When asked why she decided to go into business for herself, she replied quite frankly, "...I like to do things my own way. In my professional life before this I was fired 6 times in a 9 year period. I don’t like to be told how to do things. I much prefer to be given and objective and left to my own devices to get it completed. Bosses don’t like that, [but] micromanagement crushes inspiration."
Four years ago, she was a stay-at-home mom while her family was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. "My life was cooking, cleaning, the gym, toddlers, and more diapers than should be legal. I had two small children, a constantly absent husband, and a life that felt really small. I knew I needed to do something more, that I had more to offer, but had no clue what and how."
