Stevensville, MI

I provide opportunities for people to be creative. I am so glad you've decided to visit my Close to my Heart website. This company has changed my life. Since joining over eight years ago I have earned a Rising Star Award, fourth and eighth place in team building! I have earned two trips to Hawaii and three Caribbean cruises a trip to Puerta Vallarta! As wonderful as all those rewards are though, what's been even more valuable is the chance to meet the greatest people and develop my Close to my Heart home business into the best job I've ever had. I would so love to help you do the same! If you'd like to know how to do it, just contact me and I'll help you set off on the greatest adventure of your life! Please sign up for my newsletter at barbraotten.com for tips, coupons, and fun!
