Absolutely! Whether you want to be a hobbyist and just receive a discount on your own purchases, sell to your friends, want to make some extra money or want to sell CTMH full time -- everyone is welcome on my team.
What are the quarterly minimums?
You just need to purchase and/or sell $300. per quarter to be an active consultant. Sound easy? I think so. You can easily gather $300. in orders with one or two crops or gatherings per quarter. Quarters are: Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep, Oct-Dec.
Can I earn extra incentives?
Absolutely! There are many ways:
Straight to the Top: Take advantage of this generous incentive to get off to a great start. You can earn up to $100 in Select Product Credit (SPC) during the first 90 days based on your sales. Even if you sign up as a hobbyist, I can show you how easy it is to earn this incentive.
My Straight to the Top Incentive: When you join my team and hit both levels of Straight to the Top, I will also give you $50. in SPC! That's incredible!
Incentive Trips: Everyone is eligible to earn incentive trips offered by CTMH. When you earn the trip points, you and a guest can enjoy a fabulous paid vacation each year! I've personally earned the last 10 trips CTMH has offered. Touring New Zealand, and cruises to Alaska, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean have been among my favorites.
Other Incentives: I offer various incentives thru team challenges throughout the year. CTMH offers extra incentives based on your sales -- see commission info below.
How much commission can I earn as an active consultant?
Our generous commission structure is unparalleled in the industry!
Base Commissions: You'll earn 22% commission starting with your first order. Your base commission is earned immediately upon entering your order. For example: if you sold and collected payment on items totaling $250., you would remit $195. to Close to My Heart, and keep $55. for your compensation (excluding sales tax and shipping/handling).
Override Commissions: As your monthly sales increase, so do your commissions! The more you sell in a month, the higher your override commission will be for that month. Override commissions are paid on the 15th of the following month.
Select Product Credit Commissions: You can also earn SPC commissions based on your monthly sales starting at just $150. in sales.
Can I earn additional commission from people who sign up to be a consultant with me?
Yes! Starting with the first person who signs up with you, you'll receive extra commissions based on their personal sales. Minimum sales requirements apply. You can receive extra team commissions on up to four levels of team members.
Do I have to keep a product inventory?
No, CTMH believes strongly that a consultant should not have to go into debt by carrying an inventory.
Is training available?
Yes! We have awesome online training on our consultant website. We also have GATHERINGS AND WORKSHOPS ON THE GO -- projects and kits pre-designed for you to use at your gatherings and clubs. Annual conventions are not only fun-filled, but provide both creative and business training.
Who provides the free hostess gifts for my hostesses?
CTMH pays for the hostess gifts and shipping costs. Your hostess is required by law to pay the sales tax on their free hostess gifts.
Sounds great, how do I sign up?
