Hidden Gems: Meet Lakeisha Jeter of Spectacular.Scents

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lakeisha Jeter.

Hi Lakeisha, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I began my journey in September of 2020 due to leaving my job to assist my children with virtual schooling. I’m big on family and believe in putting my family before anything else. When I first left my job, I had no intentions or plans in starting a business. However, a friend put me in contact with someone who had a business opportunity available. From there, my home fragrance business began.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth sailing journey. Like any business, you will always experience trials and tribulations here and there. The key is what you learn from the experience and how you overcome your struggles. If I had to discuss one struggle it would be sales volume. I’m sure lots of people can relate when just starting.

Every month my sales volume is different, and that’s to be expected while still promoting myself and allowing my audience to get to know me. Although this is a rocky topic, I am still working hard to produce fruits of my labor that I would like to see come forth when the Lord sees fit.

As you know, we’re big fans of Spectacular.Scents. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
My organization has been around since the early 2000s. I’m an Independent Lead Consultant. I currently have a team of nine ladies under me. We are well known for warmers and wax. However, I’m bringing light to the other fabulous items we have available that so many had no clue existed.

These include body care, pet products, laundry items, diffusers, air purifiers, car care items, essential and natural oils. I like to think that my personality sets me apart from others. I have a loving and caring spirit that wants to see everyone win. I oftentimes see things in people that they don’t see in themselves. I’m most proud of how far I have come along the way.

Being a business owner has opened new doors, opportunities, a growth mindset, and so forth that I never knew existed within myself. It’s amazing how a passion for something changes everything. My organization as a whole is all about uplifting others while being true to ourselves. We are strong believers in giving more than we take. We are one large community of sisters and brothers cheering one another along to be all we can be while experiencing life on earth.

As part of giving more than we take, we also donate proceeds towards a charitable cause. We are truly phenomenal beyond words.

What does success mean to you?
Success to me is achieving all goals and reaching strides that you didn’t foresee in the past due to all the sticks and stones being thrown your way while trying to better yourself.
