The Consultant Opportunity
There is a place for everyone at CTMH and on my team! Being a CTMH Consultant is as individual and unique as you are. People join for many different reasons; you may have goals similar to the ones listed below.

• SHORT-TERM CONSULTANT: Sells for a short period of time to earn a specified amount of money or create a specific project then stops when the goal is reached.

• HOBBYIST CONSULTANT: Likes the idea of buying lots of products for personal use at a discount and occasionally sells to friends and family. (This was me in 2006)

• TEACHING CONSULTANT: Loves doing workshops and classes and earning extra money; by holding monthly workshops or by offering crops/retreats on a quarterly base. This gives you the flexibility to stabilize a monthly work flow or concentrate your time a one particular event per quarter. You benefit from the 22% discount every step of the way. (This is me now)

• CAREER CONSULTANT: Views CTMH as a viable business with long-term career potential, start the day knowing you are your own boss! Wants to move up the career ladder, build a strong team. Regularly attends CTMH events and has developed close social relationships with other Consultants; works at her business in a consistent manner.

I’m sure you have lots more questions, before you sign-up.

What are the minimum sales requirements?
To stay active as a Consultant you will need to sell a minimum of $300 per quarter. Most Consultants find that this goal can be reached in one or two workshops per quarter. You can host a gathering “real or virtual on-line” and your own purchases count too!

What if I decide it’s not for me; will I be penalized if I stop? Do I need to return the kit?
The kit is yours to keep. Simply stop placing orders. If you don’t meet the minimum requirements, you will no longer be an active consultant. No penalties, no questions asked. And you can keep the kit; it’s yours, no strings attached.
