Is there a minimum requirement? (The most asked question.)
There is a very easy minimum: only $300 per quarter! Most consultants can do this easily with one or two gatherings (shows). With each calendar quarter, you need to sell $300 in a three month period.

Where do I get training?
You will receive great training from many areas:
  • From CTMH: You will receive Start With Heart, a newsletter for new consultants for the first 7 weeks. This newsletter has great tips and ideas to help you get started. It gives you step by step instructions/tips and does it in a very organized fashion. There are also training courses, which offer you the ability to take free online courses in business, artwork, leadership and personal development. CTMH also offers Conference Calls on a variety of topics. Join in on one…or listen to ones that have been recorded.
  • From Me: As your upline, I am always here to help you and answer your questions. I want you to be successful and can offer you helpful tips and ideas on how to get started and beyond.
  • Events: There are events you can attend that will help you in business and creative needs. They are Unit Meetings, Regional Celebration, Leadership and Convention.
  • Websites: CTMH has a bulletin board where consultants from all over the country share tips, art, ideas and workshops! It’s a great source! Team Website: We have a great online gathering place for support from members on my team. We share art, workshops, answer questions and offer valuable support when in need. 24/7 and you can ask and you shall receive!
I’m afraid I won’t be able to create. Is there any help for me to get started?
YES! One of the best parts of being a consultant is you get creative training! We have training courses filled with artwork, workshops, cutting guides, materials needed and “how to” instructions! Workshops on the Go are posted here so you can take the information and run with it! We also have training videos to show you how!

You will also get creative training from me. I’ll be available to show you techniques and help you learn along the way.

What kind of incentives does Close To My Heart offer?

Straight to the Top is a fabulous program that helps you jump start your new adventure and rewards you:
  • Sell $1200 in your first three months and receive your Consultant Kit for FREE! (minus shipping/handling/tax)
This IS doable and many have achieved it!

Incentive Trip: If you want to get a free vacation, you can earn one fabulous cruise for TWO with CTMH! Can you picture yourself on a vacation for two? There have been cruises to Alaska, the Mediterranean, Carribean, New Zealand, Hawaii, the South Caribbean and a beautiful resort in Costa Rica and more!A new trip period starts October 1st!

Does the company offer special promotions?
ABSOLUTELY!

Constant Campaigns is a program where each month the company has something to offer to help you grow your business in sales, recruiting, hostess rewards, or for the consultant. This program has been the best and doesn’t cost you a thing! If you share the promo, you will achieve higher sales because the program is here to help YOU and your customers get the most for their purchases! I love it!

Stamp of the Month: Each month, CTMH has a special “exclusive” stamp set that is available ONLY that month. When a customer places a $50 order, they are eligible to purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5! (A savings of $12.95!) Customers can also purchase the Stamp of the Month at the full retail price of $17.95. Another fabulous program that helps you upsell and increase your sales.  AND Close To My Heart gives hints and tips for creating stunning artwork using the Stamp of the Month!

Who pays for the Hostess Rewards?
Close To My Heart pays for the hostess rewards, not you. In addition, the hostess receives free shipping on her rewards, compliments of CTMH!

When you choose me as your Upline and become a member of the Memories of the Heart Team, you will receive the following extras:

Welcome Packet
