Join My Team!

Becoming a Close to my Heart Consultant was one of the best decisions I ever made! I would love for you to join my team, but before you do, I am sure you have lots of questions. Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about signing up with Close to my Heart.
In addition to questions about me and my team, I have also been asked a lot questions about the requirements of being a Close to my Heart Consultant and why someone should sign up.
If you'd like to know why you should sign up to become a CTMH Consultant, hopefully this post will clarify some of your questions.

1.  How much does the New Consultant Kit cost?
The New Consultant Kit is $99 (plus tax and shipping) and is valued at approximately $309. (You have the opportunity to earn the $99 back with our "Straight to the Top" program.)  No tax for Oregon Consultants!

2.  What comes in the New Consultant Kits? 
You get a ton of great products and business items in the kit. You can see exactly what is in the kit below.

3.  Is there an opportunity for new Consultants to earn free products?
Absolutely! With the “Straight to the Top” program and a little extra incentive from me, you can earn up to $200 in FREE product! If you have $300 in orders in your first 30 days, you will get $25 in select product credit from CTMH. Then if you have $1,200 in orders (including the $300 you already had), you will not only get another $75 in select product credit from CTMH, but I will personally give you another $100 in ANY products of your choice...yes, even the new Artiste Cricut Collection!

4.  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.

5.  What if I don’t want to build a business and I just want to get the discount for myself on future orders?
That’s great! A majority of 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.

6.  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!

7.  What are the sales requirements?
The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) per calendar quarter to stay an active Consultant.

8.  What if I don’t place $300 in a quarter or place any orders at all?
Once you sign up, you have a full quarter to make your sales minimum which means that if you sign up today, you have until the end of June 2014 to enjoy the full discount if you choose. Then if you do not have a total of $300 in orders from April - June, you simply drop and are no longer a Consultant.

9.  How long will I be a Consultant if I order the kit and then do nothing?
If you sign up today, you will be active until June 30, 2014. Then on July 1st  you will no longer be considered a Consultant. But the new 2014 Autumn/Winter  catalog comes out in August (July for Consultants) and you just may be surprised at all of the great new products and will probably be VERY excited that you are a Consultant and are able to order the new products at a discount.

10.  Do I need to give the Kit back if I drop?
Nope. Everything is yours to keep! No strings attached.

11.  Are you 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 for 1 item or 1000 items, so there is really no need to keep an inventory.

12.  Does the company offer Hostess gifts? If so, who pays for them?
Yes! CTMH pays for the hostess rewards. And as a Consultant, you are welcome to be your own Hostess and earn more free goodies!

13.  Does CTMH offer any training or events?
Ummm....a great big YES! There are so many different training options available including an entire Online Training Academy where you can take free online creative, business, and personal development classes. You can even earn your CTMH Bachelors, Masters, and PhD degrees! There is an entire listening library of recorded conference calls, bulletin boards for artwork, business, templates, Studio J, Swaps, Mentoring, and more. They have pre-designed projects and workshops for us to use. There are annual events such as Leadershare and Convention. There is even an 800# that you can call if you have questions. And a ton more! You will never be without help.

14.  How much is it to have a website?
All Consultants, even Junior Consultants, now have FREE websites, so your friends and customers can place orders online, 24 hours a day!
15.  Can Consultants send out newsletters?
You bet! CTMH also provides all Consultants with free monthly newsletters, making it easier than ever to communicate with your customers.

16.  How do you sign up?
You can sign up at my website here. It will only take you about 5 minutes. The hardest part will be choosing which kit you want.

17.  How long will it take to receive my kit?
They have been shipping them out very quickly. But it will depend on where you live - usually 3-5 days.

18.  Can I contact you if I have questions after I sign up?
Of course. I am available via phone, email, and Facebook. I am more than happy to help you get started building a business, or just encourage you if you would simply like to be a Personal Use Consultant .

Whatever your reason for signing up, there really is no risk! You have nothing to lose!
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I’d be more than happy to chat with you.
