Client Love

I've always looked to a creative, reliable source for inspiration and guidance to make that inspiration into a finished product. Anna has always been the solution for that search for me, since the evening I met her. Her workshops were so organized, and the ladies I met offered their own style and inspiration. But Anna and I really clicked.

I was immediately drawn to Anna and her style. I think Anna was drawn to me, too. She mentioned one day that I'd make a great consultant! As time went on, and my schedule became too uncertain to commit to workshops, we started spending more one on one time together. I learned even more about the products and the brand, and became more and more interested in consultant "status". At the rate I was buying, and the excitement I had in all the products, I realized I was ready to make the commitment. With Anna as my upline, I knew I couldn't go wrong so I joined the team.

And in my little world, Anna IS Close To My Heart.
