Join My Team

Melinda Everitt, Sr. Executive Manager
I became a Close to My Heart Consultant 8 years ago when my son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and needed me to stay home with him.  After working at a job that I loved, Medical Technology, I found that I was bored staying at home and needed a new outlet.  That is where Close to My Heart fit into my life.

I had been "crafty" my entire life but I had never papercrafted.  Close to My Heart opened up a whole new world for me.  I love the product and I love the people I have met while working my business.  I signed up originally for the discount.  But once my son started improving, I have continued it as a business.  I now have a fairly large team that keeps expanding and I love it!  We hold large Team crops and are active in our Community.  I have team members all over the world.  I became a Director at Close to My Heart 3 years ago. 

Being a "retired" military wife, I recognize the importance of a business that you can take with you when your family gets orders to move to another part of the world.  I love how Close to My Heart fits into my family.  I don't have to "clock in" and work a certain number of hours.  My family comes first and it has expanded.  We are now raising two of our grandkids so I really need a job that grows with me and gives me the freedom to work when I have time.

Don't want to work a business?  There is a place for you as well on my team.  My team is very active and many of the Consultants are hobbyists.  We have many fun, creative get-togethers and retreats.  I started out as a hobbyist and I love the discount I receive from being a Close to My Heart Consultant.

I would love to extend the opportunity for you to join my team.  I am sure that you have questions about becoming a Consultant, so I will answer some of the questions I am asked most often.

3.  After I purchase the kit, what are my obligations?
     Absolutely nothing.  You never have to sell or purchase anything again.  Many Consultants 
     purchase the kit for their own use and many just want the discount they receive for being 
     active Consultants.  Those Consultants are known as Hobbyists.  No matter what, you get 
     to keep your kit!

4.  What is the discount?
      Close to My Heart offers a discount of 22% - 35% dependent upon your purchases/sales.  
     They also offer you an opportunity to earn FREE product each month.

5.  How much do I have to sell or purchase to remain an active Consultant?
     Our quarterly minimums are the lowest in the industry.  You only have to sell or purchase 
     $300 each quarter.

6.  I have never run a business.  What does Close to My Heart offer to help?
      Each Consultant gets a free website where their customers can place their orders.  You will 
     find tons of training on our fantastic website.  I will help you with additional training and will 
     answer your questions.  You will have access to a free monthly newsletter brimming full of our  
     latest promotions and news to send to your friends and customers. You will be invited to attend
     our annual Convention and our Regional Celebrations.

     As an active Consultant, you will be able to place your orders a full month before our customers                  can for most promotions and new catalogs. Close to My Heart's fantastic Customer Service is only a            phone call or email away and I am available to answer any of your questions as they come up.

7.  So as an Active Consultant, I will receive 22% Commission and free product as compensation.  Is there        anything else I can get?
    We have a new Straight to the Top Program.  If you meet the required sales for each tier, you will                 receive free product and get another medium organizer full of product.  This will get you off to a                   great start and help you become a successful Close to My Heart Consultant.

    Also, with any gathering or orders you collect, you can list youself as a Hostess (if there isn't one                     already) and you will receive the Hostess rewards for that order.  That can amount to quite a bit
    of Free product.  I will help you figure out how to maximize your savings.

8.  How can I sign up?
     You can sign up on my website.  Your kit will be delivered to you in about 5 days.

I hope I answered all of your questions, but if not, I would love to talk to you about becoming a Close to My Heart Consultant.  You can reach me at or (901) 218-1847.  Or if you are ready to sign up now, here is the link to become a Close to My Heart Consultant.
