My new part time job....

Whats new with me? You may ask....

Well, I started a new job. Yes, after 12 years of not working for someone else, I have decided to go back to work, part time.

     My reasons are many. Let's just start by saying that I am still a Close To My Heart consultant. I LOVE this company and always will! CTMH has helped me accomplish many things and grow in so many ways that I would have otherwise never achieved.

I started with CTMH 12 years ago when I was close to my due date with my 2nd daughter. I had worked at Red Robin for almost 10 years. I loved it there, but felt it was time to stay home with my babies. I had no desire to pay for day-care for someone else to raise my children! (Which is completely wierd, because before having babies I NEVER imagined that I would want to be a stay at home mom!) Now that my 3 girls are old enough to stay home with each other without me, it is time for them to be a little more responsible and helpful around the house. Not sure this is working just yet....

Some of you may know that one of the reasons stay at home moms may start an at home business is because they desire to add to the family income to help pay a certain bill, such as braces or dance classes. The bonus is that you can make the amount of money you need for that extra and still be able to control your schedule so you can be there for the kids' activities. Well, back then that is why I started with Close To My Heart is to be able to help out where I could. What you may not know is that:

I started in September 2000 living in a 1200 square foot home. In January 2003 we had our 3rd baby and were fastly outgrowing our 1st home.

By 2005 I was making a career income with Close To My Heart and we were able to Upgrade and we purchased a much larger home, 3400 sq feet. Well, along with more money usually more  expenses for a multiple reasons.

I have done many many wonderful things with the income from CTMH along with EARNING 6 cruises paid  for by the company for my spouse and myself. SUCH an AMAZING opportunity! FYI, the most recent incentive trip/ incentive just started and it is VERY DOABLE if you want to know more about earning a trip to Costa Rica to an ALL INCLUSIVE resort, please let me know! I would love to by you a cup of coffee!

Well, back to one of  the reasons I have gone back to work. I am excited to be out meeting new people and servicing people in the restaurant industry. I have always loved this type of work! I am still offering classes, parties and business opportunities, but being a little backwards.... I need to make that little extra for .... you guessed it! BRACES for my middle daughter! The same daughter when I decided it was time to stay home! Kind of IRONIC.

Plus, I am working on the Dave Ramsey snowball effect to pay off those bills even faster! So my first love is CTMH, and my 2nd part time job is now at :   HOP JACKS! We are located on Nevada in the Winco parking lot! come by and see me sometime! I usually work Thursday through Sunday days..Open for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday from 8 to 11.

After a month of learning to re-balance, I am starting to put class times together again. So please, come and play with me soon!

Hello Everyone! I hope you are having a Spectacular week! I know that I am! We have our Close To My Heart booth at the Spokane County Fair so if you are out there, please be sure to stop by our booth in Bay 1!

Also, I have been blessed so much with this business over the years. I wanted to thank everyone who I have ever been in contact with. This month I am celebrating 12 years with Close To My Heart! Do you know very many people who stick with 1 Direct Selling Company for so many years? That really is a rare find! I LOVE this company so much and for SOOO many reasons. Being a consultant with this company has allowed me to stay home with my 3 beautiful girls for the last 12 years, enabling me to still make a career income at home. Over the years, I have met so many wonderful people, made LOTS of NEW friends, Built a team of over 250 women, Earned 6 cruises for both my spouse and myself, lots of opportunity to travel to many conventions, leadership conferences and Regional events.

In 1988, When I graduated High School, it was my dream to be able to go to Europe. I had a friend that was a foreign exchange student at my high school and she was from Barcelona Spain. I was supposed to go and stay with her and her family and I had my passport and was ready to purchase my plain ticket. Her mom became ill and unfortunately I was unable to go. 20 years later, in 2008, I earned a Mediterrean Cruise for my husband and myself. Well, the cruise started and ended in Barcelona. I was able to hook up with my friend at the airport for just 30 minutes. But that was soooo cool! Plus, we spent 2 weeks in Europe for an AMAZING time with my Husband, lots of other couples from CTMH, the corporate staff and the owner of the company, along with her family.

It is an AMAZING things when the owner of the company personally knows you and your spouse and truly cares enough to ask about how things are with you and your family. I LOVE this company and all it stands for!

THANKS to Close To My Heart for the most AMAZING time that I have had over the last 12 years and here is to 12 more years!
