Join My Team!

Greetings Friends! Have you ever thought about Joining Close to My Heart? 

I appreciate the opportunity to provide you with information that can help you decide if joining Close to My Heart is a perfect fit for you! 


I joined Close to My Heart in April of 2009 because I fell in love with the products featured in the brand New Consultant Kit (I would have affectionately have been called a 'Kit Napper' - Grin!). I already Loved Scrapbooking and I thought I couldn't go wrong by purchasing a big box of heavily discounted paper crafting supplies AND getting a discount on all of my future purchases! 

I fell in love with Close to My Heart right away but had no desire to run a business or to sell the products to anyone else. In 2011, at the request of a local scrapbooking friend, I began hosting small informal classes (of 2 -10 attendees) once a month at our town library teaching paper crafting.  I quickly found that hosting these classes and placing orders for my friends earned me enough money to buy ALL of my own personal scrapbooking supplies! It never felt like work, it always just felt like a fun night of scrapbooking alongside my girlfriends and I found that I really enjoyed it! 

The classes I hosted featured kits of pre-cut papers for both Scrapbook pages and greeting cards. I began creating additional pre-cut kits to sell to those who couldn't attend as well as marketing them online and shipping to long distance buyers.  Before I knew it I had built up a large group of buyers and I was producing hundreds of pre-cut kits each month.  

The exposure from marketing/selling kits online opened the door for me to meet many of Close to My Heart's most successful (and top ranking) consultants! As I visited with them I learned that growing a Close to My Heart business really was not as scary as I had previous thought and it was then that I began changing my mindset! I mean, how AWESOME is doing something you love WHILE earning income?! 

It truly took a CHANGE of mindset to accomplish this! I worked full time outside my home, I was a mom to a special needs kiddo, wife to a business owner, and I lived in an itty bitty town of only 700 felt like too many obstacles! One night in late 2013 after a long talk with (who is now) one of my most cherished friends/most successful CTMH consultants, I actually began believing I could grow a business of my own!   

I began building our 'Just Crazy Blessed' Team in 2014 and over the past 4 years we have grown our CTMH family stretching across the United States! Having a team of (who are now my) BEST FRIENDS is one of the most rewarding experiences ever! 

We have both 'Hobby Crafters' and 'Business Builders' on our team and no matter 'where you fit' you are ALWAYS WELCOME to join us! We are (Just Crazy) Blessed to have the opportunity to support and encourage each other in many areas of our lives!

It would be my pleasure to visit with you regarding Close to My Heart! I am happy to share that I have recently transitioned to working my CTMH Business as my FULL TIME Income!

Join My Team!

Being a consultant is SO flexible! You get to decide how much you want to do - a little or a lot! Choose to be a Hobby Crafter or a Business Builder but the choice is YOURS!

I consider a 'Hobby Crafter' someone who loves paper crafting and is interested in receiving a discount on their own purchases! They might even enjoy placing orders for their friends, earning commissions and additional free product to further 'fund' their own love of crafting!

A 'Business Builder' is someone who - in addition to a love of paper crafting - has an interest in earning extra income with flexible working hours, earning an incentive trip, or growing a team of their own! They may enjoy hosting local events, In-home gatherings, or choose to work their business solely online! They may desire to supplement their income or turn Close to My Heart into a full time Business!

Are you unsure where you fit? Maybe you'd just like to take advantage of the heavily discounted products within the New Consultant Kit?

Even if you are unsure which direction you'd like to go with your consultant status I'd LOVE to have you join our 'Just Crazy Blessed' team!

It really is RISK FREE with absolutely NO strings attached! Even if you Join Close to My Heart by purchasing the New Consultant Kit and choose to do nothing afterward you are never required to return anything! All of the discounted products are yours to keep!

What else?! I am paying cash for leadership promotions! You got it! I'm a big incentive girl so I LOVE offering additional incentives for my own team! Right now I'm offering cash incentives in addition to the Cash bonuses that Close to My Heart Home Office is offering!

Now, if you are like me the details of Direct Sales makes you a bit dizzy! It seems like every company is a bit different from the others in structure of both Commissions as well as Title Maintenance! Don’t be overwhelmed, I am here to help you understand everything! 

Have a Look at this chart below for illustration!  

The chart above shows the number of team members you need to recruit in order to earn the reflective title promotion. And don’t forget, you can earn commissions from the sales of your team members!

So, is your head spinning?! This is JUST the beginning! THIS is why I LOVE this job! It’s the ONLY JOB that has ever given me Butterflies! I am SO EXCITED to bring Brand New Members into our ‘Just Crazy Blessed’ Family! What do ya say? Would you like to join us? We’d love to have you!
