It’s in the Bag: Becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant is AWESOME!

We’ve talked before about why being a Close To My Heart Consultant is the greatest opportunity ever, and in October we’re rewarding those who decide to join our Close To My Heart family by giving them this very cute bag FREE when they sign up:

New Consultant bag CTMH

You can travel in style with this trendy and eye-catching cross body bag, perfectly sized for carrying layouts, paper packets, and projects that are in-progress. Along with the items found in the newly revamped New Consultant Kit, this bag will help New Consultants start their business with confidence and flair!

And really, that’s just the beginning of the rewards New Consultants can earn! All New Consultants are automatically enrolled in our Straight To The Top program, which we’ve recently redesigned to shower them with rewards for reaching certain performance goals in their first 90 days. Just take a look at the fun stuff you can get:

Business Builder stamp setsFirst up are these exclusive My Acrylix® Business Builder stamp sets. These three stamp sets were specifically designed to help New Consultants with various business activities, from planning events and sharing the business opportunity, to showing appreciation to hostesses and customers and expressing enthusiasm for their profession. Aren’t they adorable?

On The Go Bag and Heart DangleWe call this the On The Go Bag, which makes it easy to take compact crafting projects with you wherever you go. It comes with an adorable Heart Dangle, too, which makes a great accessory for this or any other bag.STTT t-shirtThis stylish and comfortable Close To My Heart T-Shirt was designed exclusively for the Straight To The Top program.

After all, the only thing better than having crafting supplies is having MORE crafting supplies to share!

If all these rewards have you excited, then signing up to become a Close To My Heart Consultant sounds like a good move. While our Straight To The Top rewards are available to every New Consultant who earns them, the adorable shoulder bag is only available for those who enroll during the month of October! For more information, contact your local Close To My Heart Consultant. You can also visit our website and select “Be a Consultant” under the “What We Do” tab.

So what do you say? Care to join us? 🙂

From Jeanette: Life Is Worth Sharing

With the reveal of our new idea books, I’ve been feeling especially sentimental toward this company and all it stands for. My wish is that these books will become something you cherish and return to again and again throughout the coming year. As we do with all of our products, we’ve put our hearts and souls into these books, and I hope you can feel it. I know that when I flip through these crisp, colorful pages, I’m filled with a resurgence of why I work so hard to do what I do.

Why am I so passionate about what I do? I know I’ve been asked that question on more than one occasion, and I’m sure our Consultants have as well. To answer it, we released a video that explains the “why” of Close To My Heart. Please take a moment to watch this video that has become so very dear to me.

Isn’t that beautiful? I also believe life is worth sharing—the laughter and the tears that make up life’s cherished moments and become precious memories. And what better way to share these beautiful bits of life than through memory keeping?

I know that this video will resonate with many of you who share my passion for preserving memories. If it does, I invite you to join me in my mission to promote this wonderful method of memory keeping by becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant. Now is a great time to take that leap! As of August 1, all new Consultants will receive a beautiful, redesigned New Consultant Kit*, which you can see below. This kit will give you all the necessities to get your Close To My Heart business up and running. You already have the passion and the skill for making and preserving memories—now it’s time to put it to work in a new way by becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant! Becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant is more than choosing a career path. When you join our wonderful company, you join a family.

New Consultant Kit

For those of you who are already with us, thank you for making this company extraordinary. Thank you for the years of dedication you’ve already given and the years of dedication to come.

I hope that each of you who share my love for beautiful artwork and memory keeping will share this touching video. Email it to your family, tweet it to your followers, post it to Facebook, Instagram, and your blog. Let them know why you are passionate about what you do.

I can’t wait to see what this next chapter at Close To My Heart holds for all of us!

With love,

Jeanette
