To start, I'd like to share a little bit about me and my 'journey' with Close to My Heart. I signed up as a consultant in August of 1998, so this summer I will be celebrating my 12th anniversary with the company! I signed up because I loved the products and the catalog and wanted everything in it - at a discount, of course! That's the #1 reason most people sign up! Our products can't be beat! I didn't have my first gathering until February of 1999, when a friend of mine asked if I was ever going to do anything with my new 'business'. I told her if she would host my first gathering, I would give it a go. She did and that first gathering was a great success and my business has been growing ever since!
I attended my first company convention in June of 1999 in San Antonio, Texas and I have not missed one since! I learned so much and met so many wonderful people, many of whom have become my very best friends! When they announced an incentive trip of a Hawaiian Cruise - I set my first big goal and knew that I was going to be on that ship! I earned that trip in 2002 and have been able to earn a wonderful vacation for me and my family each year since then! In addition to Hawaii, we have had the opportunity to travel to Alaska, the Caribbean, Mexico and this year to New Zealand!
In December of 2003, I was able to replace my full-time income and retire from my career as a Registered Nurse to stay home and work my Close to My Heart Business full-time! I love being able to set my own hours and the flexibility to work around my family's schedule and activities.
What a wonderful and exciting journey these last 12 years have been! I can't imagine now what my life would be like without Close to My Heart. It has truly shaped and changed my life! I hope to continue this wonderful journey for many years and hope you'll join me!
