Meet your Host


Betsy Detlefs

Joined Creative Memories: 1995 With the OldCM, Consultant, Unit Leader and Sr. Unit Leader

NewCM, Advisor

Consultant/Advisor Creative Memories - 26 years.

I signed up with OldCM in September of 1995, one month before my first child, Rachel, was born.  I had no intentions of doing CM as a business.  I attended a Home Show with one of my friends and started working on my first Baby Album.  Originally I planned to just help my friends and I, get a discount.  Little did I know at that time, what huge impact this Company would make on my life.  Originally, I was hoping to lose money so that I could use my CM business as a tax write off, and counteract my husband's income. Within a couple of years, it had rolled into a business, with little effort on my part.  Shortly after my third child, Erica was born, I quit my full time Corporate job.  Because of CM, I was able to stay at home, contribute to the household and be a stay-at-home Mom. 

The benefits of being a CM Advisor has been unmeasurable.  I have met people that I would have never met and have friends that I would have never had, without Creative Memories.  I have been able to travel the world, through incentive trips. I have been places that would have remained on my bucket list, possibly forever.  I say that my blood is CM blue, because I am not sure what my life would have been, without CM, or would be now.  It is a HUGE part of my life. I have no sappy stories to tell, but I can say, that without CM, I would not be the person I am.  It has taught me to grow as a person, given me life long friendships, and has introduced me to some really amazing people! 

I have been married to my husband Peter, for 32 years, and we have 3 beautiful daughters, Rachel, who is 25 years old, Madison, who is 23 years old and Erica, who is 21 years old.
