I’ve created an amazing career with Close To My Heart! It didn’t start out this way, as I had no intention of making this a profitable business, just ask my husband. I merely signed up to get a discount on their beautiful products.
I can’t see paying full price for ANYTING (can you?), and after I placed my first order with Close To My Heart, and my entire order wouldn’t fit onto a single order form, I realized I should explore becoming a consultant. It just was more logical to sign up and give myself the discount than someone else. Plus, the consultant kit was jammed pack with tons of new product at a huge discount! 12 years later, 10 incentive trips earned there are SO many more reasons to join Close To My Heart and our Keeping Memories Alive team!
- Discount: The #1 reason why anyone should join Close To My Heart. You start out with 22% on ALL commissionable products sold. So, when you place an order for $100.00 you keep $22.00 of it (excluding shipping and tax). That means you only pay $78.00 (plus shipping and tax) to Close To My Heart. Plus, if that wasn’t an incentive enough, each month you have the opportunity to get a higher % off and earn additional FREE product (Select Product Credit), based on your monthly sales. I don’t know of any other crafting direct sales company that offers this!
- Products: The products are what attracted me to this amazing company and they still are still a very important reason why I have stayed all these years. Close To My Heart is a leader in the crafting industry. They are always up-to-date on the latest trends. Plus, with an Annual Inspirations Idea Book and TWO Seasonal Expressions Books there is always new and fresh products to choose from.
