CTMH's Friday Convention at a Glance



In this session, we were treated to the wisdom and experience of someone who's been involved in direct sales for over 25 years!! Our keynote speaker, Mary Christenson, is an inspirational speaker, a powerful trainer, and a direct-sales superstar, having signed on a team of over 1000 in her first year in the business. She guided us to embrace the key attitudes and skills needed to drive our business forward and achieve the success we've always dreamed of!!

Sales success was the theme of "Strategy + Style = Success." They helped us with all facets of selling including scripts, product knowledge, presentation style, and the all-important close. In "It's a Date!" we learned productivity boosters, time-taming tips, the power of prioritization, how to become a booking maven, and how to make our calender work for the other way around!!

There's nothing like two glorious hours of uniterrupted scrapbooking and cardmaking with friends using the newest products from the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book. Okay, they made it even better: We got two more hours of Create & Take on Saturday, too!! Our suitcases were loaded with display artwork that you will die for!!

It was our red-carpet night!! We dressed up and celebrated the achievements of fellow Consultants during the past year; hard work deserves hearty applause!! I got to stand and be recognized for achieving my Ph.D. in Close To My Heart's Training Academy!!

We also enjoyed the smooth sounds of popular pianist Jon Schmidt throughout the evening.

Upon leaving the Awards Gala, we were presented with yet another goodie...a new My Acrylix Stamp Set!!
