Why NOW Is the Best Time to Become a Close To My Heart Consultant

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant, now is a great time to take that leap of faith and sign up! Why? Well, during the month of October, you can get a deep discount on your New Consultant Kit—or even get it for free! Your New Consultant Kit includes several key business-building supplies as well as credit for purchasing additional supplies that you need to start your business off strong.

But signing up is more than just getting a kit: We know you’ll love being a Consultant. Just think—you’ll get to be your own boss, set your own schedule, make new friends, all while earning extra income to help your family (or to buy more crafting supplies! 🙂 ). And then there are the opportunities to earn even bigger rewards like free, all-inclusive trips for two to places like Mexico, Hawaii, and even Thailand!

We could talk all day about why being a Consultant is awesome, but you don’t have to take our word for it! We’ve asked two new Consultants to share their thoughts on the blog today.

Who are these two ladies? None other than our two newest Rising Star award recipients: Terry Holland and Brittany Rask! These two women have demonstrated incredible dedication and skill in their short time as Consultants, and we can’t wait to share their thoughts with you today. Take it away, ladies!

What did you accomplish in your first year as a Consultant?
I have accomplished so much more than I ever imagined. I originally signed up to get a discount on my products, and now I have a monthly cropping group, a monthly card buffet, 1–2 Gatherings a month, but most importantly, I have met many wonderful new friends because of this fun, creative, giving company that I love being a part of.

What did you accomplish in your first year as a Consultant?
When I joined Close To My Heart, I’ll be honest, I was a “kit-naper.” As a perk for signing up as a Consultant, I received several product lines that caught my eye. With more access to the materials, I learned more about the company. The products and atmosphere made me want to be a part of it. Previously, I had taught and sold at a scrapbook store, which I loved. I felt like this was a great opportunity to rekindle that passion and Close To My Heart would be the right fit.

In my first year, I hosted several crops and classes. In order to inspire business, I hosted a free monthly class at the local library. These classes included adults and children, first timers and frequent papercrafters. Another successful approach was vending at numerous events like craft fairs. Staying connected was a top priority. I followed up with Upline leads, established a Facebook business page, started a craft blog, and also sent out a monthly newsletter. Some of my favorite events included teaching a Valentine’s Day treat class to children and making Halloween bags with a group of disabled adults. My teammates also helped me literally reach new heights and overcome my fears this year by getting me on Tower of Terror during Convention.

I’m not sure how I fit it all in on top of a full-time job, part-time job, and planning a wedding, but I guess where there’s a will there’s a way.

How has your success as a new Consultant impacted your life? What has it meant to you?
Friends and family would joke about my obsession for scrapbooking and cardmaking.  But after winning Rising Star, individuals started to see my name in the community. They are intrigued with what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. It means so much having my hard work be recognized.

What advice would you give to new Consultants?
Try, try again. If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Unfortunately not every event is going to be a success, but take it as an opportunity to learn what you can do differently. Follow your Upline’s lead. They’ve been there, done that. They can help teach you about their successes and heartache so you don’t make the same mistakes. Sometimes you will find that the simplest things can create success, such as making a gift or card for another individual.

Aren’t these ladies incredible? They are proof of how life-changing it can be to become a Consultant. Thank you so much, Terry and Brittany, for sharing your thoughts. We are so grateful for you and your examples!
