Last Chance for 2010 Tax Write-Off!

Happy New Year's Eve! As I ponder back on this year, I've come to the conclusion that life is just better when you have a job that you love...and I LOVE being a Consultant for Heritage Makers. The fun, friendships and rewards are priceless. 2011 brings incredible new things to help clients publish their treasured stories and also help consultants create a business that brings in significant income. I can't wait to experience the most incredible year yet and I would love to share it with you!  

What better way is there to end 2010 than by starting a new business for 2011?  If you have a PASSION for photos and stories (OR you know someone that does) I invite you to find out how you can turn that passion into cash.  Sign up to work with me as a Heritage Makers consultant by Midnight on December 31st and write it off as a business expense! {Consult with your accountant.} Click Here to see everything that you receive in your Business Kit + find out how you can save $85 :)

Questions or need help getting signed up? Call me 404.729.0388 or email me. I look forward to working with you! ~ Betty
