studio j free for all

Shared by Karen Barber...
Studio J Free for All - you still have a few days left on this promotion. I see seven consultants on the team who have customers that have received a free JPEG file for trying Studio J - congrats to them! But there are close to 100 consultants on our team - where are the rest of you??? I challenge you to at least get your own free JPEG! Your customers won't try it if you don't! E-mail me your free JPEG or send me a link to your blog if you have it posted and you'll receive a sample card in the mail! The consultant on the team with the most customers who get a free JPEG will receive a free Level 1 kit...if there is a tie, I'll put all those names in a hat and draw one! I have attached another one of the layouts I did in Studio J using some of the Members Only papers - enjoy!

ctmh quartly sales reminder

this shared by Janene Wawro

Just a reminder about your personal sales for the current quarter,
(April-May-June). June is the last month of the quarter, and you have 9 more days to submit sales to get (or stay) active. If you aren't sure what you've submitted so far, simply login to the CTMH website - a "Key Statistics" page will pop up, showing your personal sales activity for this month and quarter. Here's a quick reminder of how it all works:

Active Consultants: Need to have submitted at least $300 in personal sales between April 1st - June 30th to stay active, retain any downline you have, and keep your 22% discount/commission. If you fall short, you will move to Jr. Consultant Status, where you will begin receiving just a 10% discount/commission instead of 22%, and will need to submit $100 quarterly vs. $300. If you have any downline, you will lose them and they'll roll up to your upline. You will not get them back, even if you gain active status later. To move back to active status, you simply need to submit at least $300 within any sales quarter and you'll automatically be promoted back up.
(*If you joined CTMH as a new consultant between April 1st - June 30th, the above info doesn't apply to you since you joined in the middle of a quarter. Your first full quarter minimums are for the July-Aug-Sept sales quarter. Be sure you are working on your STTT and personal sales goals and reaping the benefits!)

Jr. Consultants: Need to have submitted at least $100 in personal sales between April 1st - June 30th to keep your status and 10% discount. I recommend that hobbyist, Jr. Consultants who mainly just do CTMH for their own personal use and discount, shoot for submitting at least $34 in product orders each month to reach their $100, vs. try to do $100 all at once. Easier on the budget, keeps you familiar with the order entry system, and keeps fun products in your hands every month. I know that when we go for long periods of time without creating anything, we begin losing excitement. There is something powerful in the creative process, so do keep up your hobby, and the perks that come with being part of CTMH.

If you are currently at the Jr. Consultant level and don't submit your $100 by June 30th, you will no longer be a consultant with CTMH. However, you can turn around and immediately purchase a new consultant kit, receive a new consultant number, and start fresh as a new consultant again with a 22% discount/commission. This may be a good option if you are needing a fresh start. There will be a new consultant kit in July (coming on the 15th, be watching for more details from corporate this week), filled with NEW products from the upcoming Autumn/Winter idea book, live to customers August 1st. Remember that consultant kits are packed full of amazing products at a discounted rate. You can also participate in the 'Straight to the Top' new consultant program, where you will be rewarded with free product credit for hitting sales levels. Starting over again may be a great option for consultants wanting to get active, but having a difficult time doing so at the Jr. Consultant level.

Talk to your upline if you have additional questions, and I'm always here to fill in the gaps as well. We have a strong team with great leaders, and I'm impressed with the accomplishments each of you makes, big or small, in your own business. Convention is just a few weeks away and we'll be getting new products into our hands, new programs to gain excitement, and final details on the new compensation plan that will be live on October 1st. All good things coming our way!

HERE is the original unbirthday party scene...

So I am prepping for the San Diego Expo, moving again and packing for StudioJ Boot Camp. Gesh!
Yes, I said moving again. Renting a little house in Point Loma. A tight squeeze but a great location, and moments from my parents and my Jada Rose. I can walk to the water near Shelter Island! Send me happy thoughts!

CTMH team builders conference was a gift!

Still here in Salt Lake City amidst the snow! I just have to share how lucky I am to be a part of this amazing company! I can now tell you I was selected to be on the compensation committee and feel that the proposed commission structure change will be loved and welcomed. You will soon be able to see this proposal and have input before it is into place next October. Your input will be listened to and considered before this goes live!
One huge surprise is we all received a rolling tote filled with discontinued products worth $1500!!! Can you believe it! I love these small intimate events where we get to connect with our close To My Heart sistahs. This was a one time only FREE event that included classes, meals and even more Free current items including a make n' take technique book project. We received 2 new stamp sets, the new scallop punch, embellishments and more!
I also received a one on one meeting to go over my personal business looking at how the new structure would enhance my position in this business. Did you all know we are a million dollar team??? Wahoo "The Paper Cupcakes"!
I hope you are all planning to come to convention this summer! It is sure to be worth it!
