Why I Love Being a Consultant - I'm a Better Person

I signed up 6 years ago for one reason - to get that awesome discount so I could craft and not go broke in the process. I planned everything out to build my business and reach my goal. But what I didn't plan on was this - becoming a Close To My Heart consultant made me a better person. 

I've never been a shy person - I can talk to just about anyone in any situation. So talking about our products and teaching techniques at workshops and parties was never a problem. Heck, talking to random strangers about Close To My Heart was never a problem.

I may be a talker, but I rarely told people what was truly on my mind. I never reached out for help, and I kept myself pretty isolated. There's a difference between talking and connecting. I rarely let myself connect.

But, scrapbooking is all about telling your story. And creating is a very emotional process. I found myself opening up and really talking to people. I found myself connecting.

Most of my customers have become my friends. They've seen me through good and bad times in my life. They listen to me when I talk, and they comfort me when things aren't going well. In turn, I've made sure to listen and be there for them.

When I was upset, I used to just keep it in, or sometimes let my husband or best friend know what was going on. But recently, when I had a problem, I realized I had so many more people I could go to - and they're all people I met because I became a consultant. 

I don't close myself off the way I used to. If something is bothering me, I talk about it instead of holding it inside. And when someone opens up to me, I open up to them (sometimes, I even open up first!)

I think we've all had jobs that made us better at what we do. But how often can you say you've had a job that made you a better person? My Close To My Heart business has helped me grow as a person - and it's the only job I've ever had that's done that.
