Join My Team

Melinda Everitt, Director
I became a Close to My Heart Consultant almost 11 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 continued as a business.  I now have a large team that keeps expanding and I love it!  I was recognized as one of the top Team Builders at our 2018 Convention.  I was also recognized as achieving increased personal sales, team sales, title, recruiting, Straight to the Top, and Total Compensation.  I can show you how to do it!

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 where it fits into my family life.

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 have recently expanded into online virtual meetings to accommodate my non-local team members. 

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 below that I am asked most often.

First of all, I would like to share the Close to My Heart Mission Statement with you. This is what distinguishes Close to My Heart from the other scrapbooking companies.  As a consultant and a team leader, I will show you how to use our products and how to be a consultant.

3.  After I purchase the kit, what are my obligations?
     Absolutely nothing.  You never have to sell or purchase anything.  Many Consultants purchase the               kit for their own use and want the discount they receive for being active Consultants. Those                           Consultants are known as Hobbyists.  No matter what, you get to keep your kit and for up to 6                       months you will have the discount.

4.  What is the discount?
     Close to My Heart offers a discount of 22% - 35% depending 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 consultant website.  I will help you with additional training, will                                 mentor you in your business, and will answer all your questions.  Close to My Heart will send out a free           monthly newsletter with the latest promotions and news to your customers and friends. You will be                 invited to attend our annual Convention, Album Retreats, and our Regional Celebrations.

    As an active Consultant, you will be able to place your orders a full month before our customers                  can for the new catalogs - up to 3 months early for our Promotions.  And you will get the                                Consultant discount in addition to the sale price.  Close to My Heart's fantastic  Lose to My                              Heart's 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.  You will receive special incentive rewards if you                       meet the required sales for each tier, and if you achieve all 3 levels, you will receive the bundle of               products shown below.  It is worth over $150.  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.
