3. What’s the catch? 
Other than getting a ton of wonderful products at a great deal and most likely getting addicted to them, there is no catch. You have the opportunity to build a business if you choose, but you don’t have to.

4. What if I don’t want to build a business and I just want to get the discount for myself on future orders? 
That’s great!  A majority of Consultants are Hobbyists or Personal Use Consultants and do not do parties or hold classes or workshops. You are welcome to simply enjoy the discount on your own orders.

Consultants enjoy a discount of 22%-35% depending on their sales for the month in addition to earning up to $75 in FREE Select Product Credit (SPC) each month.

The sales requirement is $300 retail (before your discount) per calendar quarter to stay an Active Consultant.

7. What if I don’t place $300 in a quarter or place any orders at all?
Once you sign up, you have a full quarter to make your sales minimum which means that you have until September 30 to enjoy the full discount if you choose. If you join in the middle of a quarter (April-June) you do not have to place an order during that initial quarter if you do not wish to.  Then if you do not have $300 in orders by –September 30, you will be dropped from the company.

8. Do I need to give the Kit back if I drop?
No. Everything is yours to keep! No strings attached.

9. Are you required to maintain an inventory?
No. There are so many different products that CTMH actually suggests that you do not maintain an inventory. You can place an order for 1 item or 1,000 items, so there is really no need to keep an inventory.

10. Does the company offer Hostess gifts? If so, who pays for them?
Yes!! CTMH pays for the hostess rewards. And as a Consultant, you are welcome to be your own Hostess and earn more FREE goodies!! We also have Hostess Rewards Stamp Sets that you can purchase at reduced prices using your Select Product Credit!!
