Hello from sunny Orlando! Loving the Florida heat but this humidity is CRAZY!!!! Having a blast - arrived here yesterday after a loooong day of travelling. After a good night's rest - - enjoyed a great "Leadership Day" today - - a special part of Convention open to those with a title of "Manager" or above. Best part of the day was reuniting with fellow consultants met at Conventions past or even those I know strictly online. So much fun!
Here are the leadership day attendees this morning after our great breakfast, all ready to get started with our day:
We had a full day of lots of great business info - including a fabulous keynote speaker from the Disney Institute, a great Q&A session with the CTMH Corporate Executive team, and an afternoon of business advice from the top consultants (salespeople, recruiters, and online gurus) in the Company. Basically it was a chance to 'pick their brains', so to speak and find out how they've become so successful at what they do. Always great to hear what other people are doing and what works & what doesn't.
So . . . I'm sure you are all wondering if we got any insights into what is going to be revealed tomorrow at the big CTMH Convention General Session & "REVEAL" day! They are really keeping things under wraps at this point - - but tell us we will not be disappointed! A few things we did hear today:
- the next CTMH Incentive Trip will be a land trip to Hawaii - - a visit in February 2015 to the Disney Resort "AULANI". It truly sounds amazing and the earning period for that trip will start in October with all the details on HOW to earn that trip released at that time.
- we were told today that the new Idea Book being revealed tomorrow will reveal some product lines that are completely 'new' to Close to My Heart. They say we will never stray from our core focus of stamping and scrapbooking but they are going to introduce what sounds like a more diversified crafting product line - - so looking forward to seeing what is in store tomorrow.
- we were introduced today to the new CTMH leadership team in Australia (former Creative Memories consultants) - they are excited to opening the new CTMH Australasia officially on Monday - meaning new consultants there can join starting next week! A very exciting time for them and so interesting to hear their perspective on the recent Creative Memories events.
- for all you chocolate lovers - - the upcoming August stamp of the month is all about CHOCOLATE!!
That is all from me today -- big day tomorrow!!! Will be sure to update everyone with all the exciting announcements & reveals tomorrow.
