There are many different types of consultants in Close to My Heart, and you choose what you want to do with this fabulous collection of products! Here are some options that might appeal to you:

1.  HOBBYIST:  By far most consultants in CTMH are hobbyists, and CTMH works hard to offer many perks to them!  Bulk products, early purchase power, a great discount (minimum of 22%, goes up with the higher your sales are), and wonderful project ideas!!  If you choose to sell more to friends and family, then you can certainly do so!  There are no limits here--sell or don't sell, it's all up to you.  Minimums are the same for all active consultants--$300 PER QUARTER.  Quarters run Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sept, and Oct-Dec.  These are the same for all consultants.  If you are generally spending about $100 a month in scrapbooking supplies, then this is a great option for you!!  

2.  CLUB LEADER:  You already host a group of your scrapper friends on a consistent basis, and you'd love a way to streamline the process so that you are not frantically trying to come up with ideas and searching for coordinating accessories.  Why not join CTMH and use our wonderful Workshop on the Go kits for your friends?  There are a number of ways to use these kits, but they sure make life so much easier and it's pretty much all done for me!  By being the consultant and offering these kits to your friends, you make commissions, they get great products, and the work is cut down to about 10% of t a time commitment! 

3.  BUSINESS BUILDER:  Stuck in a dead end job and hate answering to others?  Then Close to My Heart may be the way out of that situation!  Once you get a strong customer base and have found some venues for your business, you may find yourself with enough income to get out of that dead end job!!  Take a good look at the people you already know--do many of them scrap or make cards?  Do they stamp?  Would they be interested in holding gatherings for you so you get to know more people?  If you are nodding your head, then it seems to me that you already have a customer base just waiting for you!  And if you don't know a TON of people who scrap, ask this:  have you ASKED people if they scrap??  I didn't ask until I became a consultant, and low and behold, I DID know a lot of people who scrapped, and they introduced me to more!!  You can always start as a hobbyist and discover yourself to be a Business Builder!

4.  CROP VENDOR:  Do you go to lots of crops and there isn't a CTMH vendor there?  Why don't YOU become the CTMH vendor??  You could be the vendor for products you love and still scrap the day away.  Consultants are permitted to carry inventory with CTMH, although selling from the Idea Book is of course the recommended way.  This is ONLY because to buy inventory, you BUY it and it's YOURS until you sell it.  If you are able to invest in a few items, you can be a crop vendor.  I have slowly built my inventory (which is NOT huge) by using Hostess Rewards that I earned when ordering my club kits (oh, yes, Consultants can be hostesses!!).  

There are SO many options for what YOU want to do with your Close to My Heart consultant kit!  If you decide that you really don't want to do anything more with your kit than use it for yourself and never buy a thing, you certainly scored a GREAT deal!!!!
