Fourteen years ago, I was a young mom spending my days at home with our first child, then a toddler. Although I really enjoyed being home with my daughter, I felt the urge to do something else as well--partly to bring income into our family but also to fulfill that part of me that just needed to succeed at something. I'd been a high academic achiever in high school and college, and I just felt like I needed that "something" that I could work at and call my own, even though I was still committed to staying home with my growing family. In 1996, I attended a friend's home party. I'd never heard of the company (then called D.O.T.S.) but thought it looked kind of interesting. While at the party, I watched the Consultant stamp and create an adorable card. I was fascinated. . .I'd never even touched a rubber stamp before, and I began to see all of these fun creative possibilities. Some friends of mine at the party told me, "Christina, you'd be good at this!" so I asked the Consultant for information. Two months later, I signed up with D.O.T.S. whose company name would later become Close to My Heart.
I started out with modest goals, just trying to do a couple of parties each month. When I found out that I could do this fairly easily, I raised my goals a little higher. I found that home parties were fun, but for me, teaching workshops was even more fun! I got to spend my evenings with fun groups of ladies, teaching them how to create their very own cards, paper crafts and scrapbook pages.
One perk I never expected to get out of this business was the opportunity to travel. Not only could I go to fun places around the country for Leadership meetings and Conventions, but I could also EARN trips by doing what I loved. I've earned seven cruises from Close to My Heart, and my husband and I have sailed all around the world--what an incredible treat!!
On a personal note, being a Close to My Heart Consultant has given me an opportunity to cultivate my creative talents, to develop leadership skills and to feel proud of what I have accomplished--all while staying home and being actively involved in my children's lives. I love that I'm my own boss--that I get to decide HOW I want to work my business and when I want to work it. If I want to work hard at it for one season and then take it slow the next, it's okay. . .no one will "fire" me for setting my own goals.
