Join Close To My Heart and my Fabulous Team
Joining Close To My Heart was one of the best decisions I ever made! I have the supplies and encouragement to make beautiful creations, supportive team members, and extra income! I would love to have you join my team. My team includes business builders as well as crafters who just want to stock up at a discount – I LOVE you all and will help and support you as much (or as little) as you want!
If you have any questions please contact me, and if you’re ready to get in on this great deal, you can join my team here.
A Bit about Why I Chose to Join Close To My Heart:
I LOVE being a Close To My Heart consultant. At first, I had no plans to make this a business. All I wanted was the consultant kit (which is an even better deal now) and the discount. As soon as I got the kit I was inspired to create, and since some of my creations were pretty awesome I decided to show them off. This “showing off” led to other sales. My friends were so impressed that they spent $700 collectively on products. These friends have since joined a club and we meet every month to create and have fun together. Since the sales went so well, I have started growing a team.
Why You Should Join Close To My Heart:
Discount: I know that many people join Close To My Heart for the discount (I did). We get at least 25% of all sales. This also means we get paid right away instead of waiting for a check from the company. We collect full retail price and pay 25% less when we enter the orders (so we get our commission immediately!). And, if we sell more during a mont, we can get up to 35% off.
Training: Another great reason to join Close To My Heart is the training. CTMH offers product training so that we are always current in stamping, scrapbooking, and card-making techniques. They also have some great training to get your business off the ground (if you choose). And, they have amazing ready to go project ideas for workshops and gatherings so you can easily teach and inspire your friends and customers.
Preview Periods: As consultants we get to see new products, and purchase or earn promotional items early (usually a month in advance). I received the anual catalog a month early and the seasonal mini catalog TWO months early! We also get the option to purchase some new items in bundles so we can save money and get goodies early!
Free Products: We often have the opportunity to earn free goodies and special items. We also earn FREE product credit along with our commissions every month. This credit can be used to stock our own craft supplies or for products to use for workshops and gatherings.
So Much More: As a consultant I get to share quality products, teach and inspire friends, family, and new friends, and share my love of crafting!
I want everyone to enjoy Close To My Heart products and the opportunity to get creative! Ready to have fun, meet people, and get creative? The answers to some frequent questions are posted below so you can get answers quickly. Of course you can also contact me through Facebook or email if with any questions.
While you are thinking about joining Close To My Heart, please head over to my Facebook group for future team members.

Let’s craft and party together!

Can consultants earn FREE stuff?
Oh yes! We have a program called “Straight to the Top” to encourage you to start strong. There are three levels and you earn FREE goodies at each level. If you reach all three levels (a total of $1,200 in your first 90 days), you will get THREE exclusive business builder stamp sets, a cute “on the go” bag, a heart dangle, a CTMH t-shirt and a CTMH organizer filled with $150 in goodies. And, you will get a Workshop kit as as a special gift from me. And, don’t forget the regular benefits of this strong start. . . you will have earned at least $260 in commission and $75 in Select Product Credit!
What’s the catch?
Other than getting a ton of wonderful products at a great deal and most likely getting addicted to them, there is no catch. You have the opportunity to build a business if you choose, but you don’t have to.
What if I don’t want to build a business?
That’s great! Many Consultants are Hobbyists or Personal Use Consultants and do not do parties or hold classes or workshops. You are welcome to simply enjoy the discount on your own orders.
What is the discount?
Active Consultants enjoy a discount of 22%-35% depending on their sales for the month in addition to earning up to $75 in FREE product credit each month. Senior Directors and above also earn an additional 5% – 15% of personal override commission ON TOP of the regular commission and free product credit! Your earning potential is unlimited!
What are the sales requirements?
The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) per calendar quarter to stay an active Consultant.
What if I don’t place $300 in my first quarter?
Once you sign up, you have a full quarter to make your sales minimum which means that if you sign up today (July, August, or September 2017), you have until the end of December 2017 to enjoy the full discount if you choose. Then if you do not have a total of $300 in orders from October – December, you simply drop and are no longer a Consultant. But, with all of the fabulous new products that will be coming out in the Annual Inspirations catalog and the Holiday Expressions catalog, you will probably be VERY excited that you are a Consultant and are able to order the new products at a discount. So, chances are you will not drop! 🙂
Do I need to give the Kit back if I drop?
Nope. Everything is yours to keep! No strings attached.
Will I be required to maintain an inventory?
Nope. There are so many different products that CTMH actually suggests that you do not maintain an inventory. You can place an order when you need an item, and they ship quickly!
Does CTMH offer Hostess gifts?
Yes! CTMH pays for the hostess rewards. And as a Consultant, you are welcome to be your own Hostess and earn more free goodies!
Does CTMH offer any training or events?
Absolutely! There are so many different training options available including lots of great videos and webinars. There is an entire listening library of recorded conference calls, bulletin boards for artwork, business, templates, Swaps, Mentoring, and more. They have pre-designed projects and workshops for us to use. There are annual events such as Local “Seasonal Expressions Launch” Events, annual Crop Weekends, and Convention. There is even an 800# that you can call if you have questions. There are also fabulous projects designed by the Home Office and other consultants to make it easy to lead workshops and gatherings! You will never be without help. PLUS, I offer all of my monthly project guides to my team members, and you will have access to my director’s fabulous monthly projects too.
How much is it to have a website?
All Close To My Heart Consultants have a FREE website, so your friends and customers can place orders online anytime!
Can Consultants send out newsletters?
Yep! CTMH also provides all Consultants with free, professionally designed monthly newsletters, making it easier than ever to communicate with your customers.
