Pam Shaw, Senior Gift Director
Hi!  I'm Pam Shaw from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm many things to different people: caregiver for my mother, doting aunt to twenty-five nieces and nephews, and an entrepreneur. As a Gift Consultant with La Bella Baskets,  I work from home with a flexible schedule that allows me more time to spend with family and friends. My La Bella Baskets business enables me  to give more money to my church and other charities.  And I live the life of my dreams. Most of all, I get to help others to do the same.

Lisa Martinez, Senior Gift Director
I  have  two  wonderful children, and have a great husband. I am currently working outside the home but my dream is to work at home full time and  eventually make us set for life financially.    I've committed myself to consistently learning and working La Bella Baskets EVERY day. I have a sign on my desk that says: "Small actions done consistently can yield big results." I'm proud and grateful for every paycheck.    I marvel at how much fun I'm having and how well I'm getting paid to help others even on a part-time basis!

When Mia called me about La Bella Baskets, I knew this was very different.  The concept is so simple and there are no quotas nor hard sell.  I had NEVER worked at home before but the gift basket and flower concept was very appealing because I know so many people that buy flowers and gift baskets every month.   While La Bella Baskets sounded great, I wondered if I could really make it work for me. Fortunately, I listened to that clear voice inside of me that said, "You can do it." I simply couldn't find a REAL reason to NOT get started. So, I signed up, and never looked back.  I am now working on my dream.  I want to be able to build a large customer base and work at home full-time. 

La Bella Baskets can help ANYONE who is willing to learn and work to achieve their dreams. They have a tremendous support team. Jump in...the water's great! This quote by Henry David Thoreau sums it up beautifully: "...if you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."

Sonia Vergel
I'm a 36 year old Stay at home mom of a 3. I've tried other work at home businesses or jobs, but it either cost to much, or I was left by myself, with no support or training, so I got discouraged. I want to work at home because I do want to continue staying home with my boys;  I want to see them grow, their only this little once. I'm also looking for more financial freedom, so I can help others more.

I joined La Bella Baskets because I've always been interested in gift baskets business but never did it for one reason or another. When I saw La Bella Baskets, I jumped on the opportunity to work for myself, and also doing something that I've always wanted to do.

Cindy Cornelius
My name is Cindy Cornelius.  I live in Knoxville, TN with my husband and two teenage daughters.  I enjoy being a wife and mother, but wanted to earn some extra income to help with family expenses.  I found an ad from another consultant and was sold immediately on the idea of working from home, having a great product I can promote and earn a commission on all my sales.  I chose La Bella Baskets, simply because there was no inventory to buy and deliver, the products are beautiful and I felt they offer a product for everyone on any gift list.  I had previously worked in Real Estate and when I saw the dinner in a basket, I knew I wanted to promote this to other Realtors.  For a closing gift, I would often put together my own basket, then deliver to the client.  How easy and how much time & money I could have saved by ordering off the web site the Taste of Italy Basket.  I will certainly be contacting all my friends who are still selling real estate about this basket!  I'm looking forward to getting started with La Bella Baskets and achieving my goals for my two girls to attend the college of their choice.

Tanya  Rick
Hello-My name is Tanya and I am a very excited bride-to-be who has a destination wedding set for January, 2011. I had been trying to think of how to make a little extra income to help pay for my wedding when I cam across the La Bella Baskets opportunity. This opportunity allows me to work from home, have fun, make people happy, and make a lot of extra income!! Some work at home opportunities require you to host parties or shows in others' homes which I was never a fan of so I would shy away from those opportunities, but La Bella Baskets is different which sets them apart. I am very excited about the opportunities and possibilties that La Bella Baskets makes possible!!

Lynn Kemp, Senior Gift Director
My name is Lynn Kemp. I am a wife and mother of two. I have always enjoyed helping others and investing my life in people. I have had experience with marketing and have enjoyed learning much about home based businesses. 

With so many opportunities to choose from, a few things are key.  Number 1, look for a company with integrity. Number 2, find a market for things people need and want. Number 3, be willing to learn and invest your lives in others. That is why I am with La Bella Baskets!

When you are genuine, you draw people to you. Having had several years of teaching and coaching experience, I consider it my honor to help you in anyway I can.  Let me know what I can do for you and your family.

Kristen L. Cisco
I am on an EMT and a Unit Secretary as well as a single mom of three. I had worked from home years ago creating
and selling candy bar wrappers when it was the "in thing" at the time.

I decided to start working from home again, to create and independence for myself, where I can be available to my children when needed.
I can also control my own hours and income.

I chose La Bella Baskets because I was impressed with the introduction to their business, the dedication, the fact that I did not have to worry about the over heard,
chasing customers for money or delivering the products. That it's a TRUE HOME BUSINESS where I do not have to "Press 1" to find out that I have to speak
to a representative to ask a question and to not even get the answer till maybe 2 days later if I am lucky,
as a consultant we are able to go right to the owners of La Bella Baskets if we have any questions.

My dream is to grow my business to where I am 100% financially stable because of my business alone.
I will no longer have to wake up at 5:50 am every morning, work on Holidays or weekends instead I will be available to spend those days that are
most important with my children. And to be honest, I will have more time to continue
doing what I enjoy doing and that is volunteering as an EMT for my local ambulance.

I take pride in being in a position to make a difference in someone's life. I love baking, gardening, decorating, jazz and classical music, anything really of the arts, and my passion is writing.

Debra Taylor
My name is Debra Taylor, I'm from Brooklyn, NY and I'm a work at home mom! I have tried quite a few home opportunities that just didn't produce enough income for me. When I heard about LaBella I said this is right up my alley, don't have do anything but promote and earn how awesome is that!  With many Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Holidays, or just for that special occasion there is always someone to buy a gift for and this is the best opportunity to provide it. I also look forward to sharing this wonderful opportunity with others with the same desire as myself.

Laurie Cole
I worked at home for 12 years while my boys were little.  I am now working as a legal receptionist but have always wanted to get back to having my own business. I would love to be back home again working full time at home. I like the feeling of being part of something, especially when it is for a good cause.  I love arts and crafts and did a lot of things on the side for people as gifts. This business is perfect because I can still see the joy when someone gets the gift as well as still being involved in the gift giving process.

Lynette Jenkins
Hello my name is Lynette Jenkins. I am a proud mother of seven. I have worked at home in the real estate market for six years. I enjoy real estate, however, it has not given me the true reward in finance and flexibility that I am desiring. I decide to join Labella for that very reason, to regain that flexibility and control over my finances. I also joined out of my passion to bring a smile to others and the possibility of being the part of the process of changing the life of someone else. Having experienced the hardship and struggles of being a single mother, my dream is to one day open a home for displaced women and children and I believe that Labella can be a huge stepping stone in reaching that goal.

Juliet Bolling
Hello, I am a single mother of a 15 year old daughter, her name is Jillian. I like to be at home for her when she gets out of school. My husband passed away in 2004 of cancer. After he passed away , my daughter and I opened up a floral shop. With the economy being in the ruts , I had to close it down. I have been looking for something to do at home and in my spare time. I can not wait to contact all my old customers and send them to my new website.
Now when people ask me where I work I can truly say, " I own an internet business , I 'm still doing flowers and gift baskets but from my own website". I am looking forward to staying with La Bella for a long time.

I am from Long Beach located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast right in the heart of where hurricane Katrina hit.
About 20 minutes along the beach from Biloxi.There has been very few floral shops that have rebuilt since the hurricane.  I want to thank La Bella for giving me this business opportunity to re-connect with my customers and
make some extra money. I am seriously going to promote my business to the best of my ability. I look forward
to reading the newsletters and getting to know others whom own their own La Bella stores.

Apphia Webster
I decided that I wanted to bring extra income in my household for my kids and spend more time with them.

I decided to join La Bella Baskets because it seems like such a simple service to sell.  It isn’t a complicated service or product.  It is very simple.          

I am a single mother of 2 kids and I do not want to be making someone else rich while I am living paycheck to paycheck.  I want to maintain a great lifestyle for my kids and myself.  I feel that by owning a business I can do that.  I want to help others reach their goals and obtain freedom for themselves and their family.  I look forward to reading more success stories as La Bella continues to grow!

Greg Collins
Hello, my Name is Greg, and I am not a single mother, but a single Dad. I have three wonderful sons, and have been struggling with unemployment over the last year, and have been trying to start my own business, and of course with limited income, it was impossible.

I happened to come across Labella Baskets, when searching for a job. I have been doing contract work this past year while searching for employment, which included, Banquets, Set Designs, Weddings, and some local Floral Design work. When I saw this opportunity, I thought this would be perfect for me to pursue. With the background I have in Marketing and Advertising, plus dealing with the Entertaining and Floral Industry, this was a match made just for me.

I am excited about the opportunity to be able to work from home, and still be a Dad that can be with my children as much as possible, without having to work weird hours, and weekends.  Thank you so much for this exciting adventure, and I am looking forward to where it will lead me in the future!

Lisa Garner

Although I have been an elementary school teacher and freelance writer for over twenty years, I was recently diagnosed with a degenerative eye disorder which eventually causes blindness. As a result, I have been researching home based business opportunities and found LaBella Baskets to be a perfect fit. My career with LeBella Baskets will afford me the opportunity to continue working outside of the home, and it will bring me comfort in knowing I'll still have a career once I begin transitioning back to home based employment. The positive energy and support provided by the company's staff and the Baskets for Hope program are what really sealed the deal for me!

I was looking for ways to supplement my income and came across La Bella Baskets.

Tessa White
Hello! My name is Tessa White and am from Fort Worth, TX. I’ve tried working at home before but found that it was never a product I truly liked. So I figured I’d give it one more shot. I work at a low-income job and I love what I do, but I figure I need to make a supplemental income. When I heard about La Bella Baskets, I thought it sounded like a nice idea but wasn’t sure if it was for me. Then I read the testimonials(both on your site and from others on others site) and decided to go for it. Ideally, my dream is to not worry about when I’ll be able to have groceries in the house. With La Bella, I hope to be able to work on something that is enjoyable and profitable at the same time.

Barbara Petersen
Hello!  My name is Barbara Petersen and I am so excited to find an easy way to get started in a home based business.  Previously, I have sold on the large internet auction sites, but never felt like I had the right product.  In the end, it became extremely time consuming with not much to show for it.  I was still trying to keep my head above water financially.  LaBella Baskets is a product that can be marketed with simply the motivation and initiative. There are always special occasions and holidays that need to be celebrated!  And I can't think of a better way to do that!

Bobbi Hurst
I'm Bobbi Hurst and currently live in Lenexa, KS, which is a suburb of Kansas City.  I am actually a Florida native but relocated here with my job in 1997.  I have two great daughters, Katie (22) and Melissa (19).  I'm divorced and have been a single mom for a long time and really know what hard times are like!  That is one of the things that attracted me to this business!  I wish this opportunity was around about 15 years ago!

I've been in the telecommunications industry for over 30 years and my job will be phasing out by the end of the year.  I've worked various part-time jobs over the years for extra $ but was looking for something that I can do full-time from home when my job ends.  I was also looking for something that I can do from anywhere, so that I can travel and go to Florida during the winter months and work whatever hours I want.

Well, I've decided . . . this is IT!!  I found my "dream" business.  I enrolled on 2/28 and spent the first the two weeks getting organized and reading through the Training website.  TONS of great information!!   I know it's not a "get rich quick business", but with some hard work NOW, I'm hoping that I won't have to go to another full-time job next year!  I turned 55 in January and who at that age wants to go out and find a new career!  Thank you, Sarah Madderra for placing that ad!!

So team, it's totally up to YOU!!  Work this business NOW!!  Put everything you've got into now and you will benefit during the Holiday season at the end of year and months to come!  Especially with the new compensation plan . . .I'm working both sides of the business!  And, I'm really enjoying meeting and talking with people and building new friendships!

We are off to a WONDERFUL adventure!  Hats off to Mia and Janis for starting this business for us and for their support!!

Sharon Pace
Hi my name is Sharon Pace and I live in Los Angeles, California.  I started as consultant in the beginning of May 2010.
I was happily married to my huband Edward for close to 15yrs, but suddenly my life changed when I lost my best friend and soulmate due to unforeseen circumstances. It was truly a shock for me. Then later, I lost all my family one by one till I became totally alone. Trying to start my life all over again.

I learned to do things for myself now and not rely on anyone which has made me a stronger person. One day, I came across this ad for La Bella Baskets and at first I was skeptical about trusting some online business but I liked the way it sounded because they made it so simple and easy to follow. I always dreamed of owning my own business and this sounded like a doable business idea. So, I decided to give it a chance.  I was very impressed with the way the company was so caring and helped me get the tools i needed to run a business at a very reasonable cost. I listened to the meetings and got inspired by the others who shared their marketing ideas as well.
I have worked in telemarketing/sales, travel industry, beauty industry, retail sales, product demonstrator, and many other fields. But, doing my own home business was very new to me, something I only dreamed about but knew that most business cost a lot of money to start up . La Bella has given me an opportunity to start my own business at such a minimal cost.

Being that I am a creative and artistic person and well the idea of selling baskets that make people smile is something that I would enjoy doing so i decided to start this business. Every day I try to think of new ways
to improve my business and I plan on developing more business contacts.
I would like to congratulate all the Senior Directors who strive hard to reach their goals and have reached success and also those that are striving to meet their goals. 

I know I set goals for myself and I work at my own pace but I try to achieve those goals and put my best into all i do .
The main thing, is that you believe in yourself because no matter what anyone says, you know what you can achieve if you really try hard and not give up on yourself.  I learned to be strong after losing all my loved ones , I have to encourage myself now and if I decide to go for it I can't let obstacles get in my way, I must always move forward and never lose hope.

Thank you, La Bella for letting me be a part of your team and lets all help one another as a team and let's all reach our goals and continued success to all !!

This is my first work at home experience. I am a third generation professional florist with a dream of being a travel writer / photographer. I love the freedom that this opportunity provides me while still working, and earning an income. I came to La Bella Baskets after extensive research in similar work at home opportunities. With the training, support, products, and professionalism of everyone at La Bella it was not hard to make my decision. Thank you for providing such a unique and positive opportunity that allows me to pursue my dreams, while still being connected to my first love of providing people with high quality gift baskets, and flowers.

Crystal Vecchione
Hi my name is Crystal Vecchione and I am a mother of 2 from Philadelphia. Five months ago I gave birth to my second child and after my maternity leave had expired, I decided not to return to my full time job. I love the time I get to spend with both of my children and would dread to have to go back to working full time.

So while searching online for the right work at home opportunity and I found La Bella Baskets.  What I really liked about La Bella was that I don’t have to throw parties, keep inventory, or handle products or cash.  I’ve had such a positive experience here and I am really enjoying myself.  I know with hard work this business can generate a good source of income, and I’m excited to be a part of the La Bella team!

My name is Sheryl and I live in Irving, Texas with my 3 boys, 2 who attend college and 1 a sophmore in highschool, I have a daughter who is married and lives in Phoenix.

I have for the most part always worked at home in order to be able to stay here with the kids while they were younger. Im now spoiled and love the flexibility of working for myself putting in as many or as few hours a week that I want. La Bella baskets fits perfectly into my lifestyle, I also do eBay and have for several years as well as a couple of other home based businesses so I do stay busy all the while being able to come and go pretty much as I please and stay involved with my boys. I am excited about growing my La Bella basket business and seeing where it might go. Thank you to everyone who has been so helpful in getting me started!

I can have great gifts to give to my clients. I love gift baskets and I’m always purchasing them for clients anyways. It’s a win win situation. I love helping people, and people love getting gifts.  Thanks Janis and Mia for this awesome opportunity

Hello there, my name is Tonya Groomes.  I joined La Bella Baskets because I was looking for a real work from home company that would allow me the financial freedom and flexibility to set my own schedule and be my own boss.  I have been involved with other work from home businesses, but this is by far the best and last I will ever be involved with.   The company really does all the work for us.  All I have to do is get the word out to others and let them know about our wonderful gift baskets and flower arrangements.  I also was very impressed with the baskets of hope program which sends out gift baskets to single moms as a way of saying we care about you and all that you do.  I look forward to growing my La Bella basket business and many thanks to both Mia and Janis for this wonderful opportunity!!

Deb Galarza
I currently reside in Appleton, Wisconsin.  Working at home has always been a wish of mine but unfortunately I have not had that opportunity.  I found La Bella Baskets and jumped at the opportunity.  I have always had a fascination with Gift Baskets.  They're pretty, fun and make great gifts.  I am looking forward to building my business so that I can replace my current income and work at home full time.  My dream is to be financially in a position to afford the lifestyle I want.  To be able to pay my bills without thinking about it.  To buy a house or some property somewhere out Southwest.  To be able to take care of my family and provide for their needs.  I look forward to the opportunity to get to know other consultants who do this business. Thank you La Bella for coming into my life.

Cherylyn Butler
Hello, My name is Cherylyn Butler -I live in Barrington, N.H. which is in the Strafford County area of N.H. ~ I am happily married to a WONDERFUL man - it took me 3 tries, but  I finally got it right !  And when they say ,"the 3rd time is the charm", they are absolutely correct!  I also have 3 fantastic boys whom I am so proud of -Ryan , 22 - PJ, (Paul-Joseph) 19, and Dylan 9 yrs old . And a great stepson Lucas 19 .  I am also excited, and looking forward to being a 1st time Grandmother in Feb. 2011!!  I found La Bella Baskets  in my email inbox , not too long ago - (2 weeks ago)  to be exact,  sent from an LBB consultant who saw my info online generated to her through a lead she had-and decided to send me an email about the business, and I have to tell you , I am so relieved she did!!  Because this is just what I have been looking for - it's as if God had answered all of my prayers! 

You see, I have been down a long road to nowhere... I  had been looking for a legitimate work -at- home opportunity with "integrity" since Jan. 2006. I had no idea how difficult  that journey was going to be. 

So - when I got that email from the LBB consultant and now my sponsor - I have to admit, at first I was a little skeptical because of all the scams I had fallen for in the past, but as I read it all over - the more excited I got!!  I showed it to my husband and as we re-read it more than 4 times...we both decided  it would be a fabulous opportunity !!  I knew this was a right fit for me -as I felt at peace with it -it gave me the impression that this business was run with integrity , that they were honest and genuine. I simply could not pass this up!  I always told myself before - "when in doubt, don't do it"  -but with La Bella Baskets, I never had any doubt in my mind!  So my husband helped me with the small start up fee to join- and now I am off and ready to start making this business work for me and my family!  I can't tell you how excited I am to begin to make new lasting friendships, and see my successful future unfold before my eyes!  The possibilities are endless!!   Thank You so much!!

Nicolette Stevens
My name is Nicolette Stevens and I am a recently married mother and step-mother to a total of four adult children, none of whom live at home.  I work a full time job for someone else and have come to the realization that while my efforts "may" be appreciated, I can be laid off or terminated in an instant.  It is my belief that everyone should have their own full time or side "gig".  With the help and encouragement of my wonderful husband Labella is now a major part of my side "gig".

I am married with 3 kids (1 girl and 2 boys) to my husband Robert going on 19 years. I live in Cary, NC and yes I have worked at home before, and it helps me to connect better with my kids to teach them the value of business ownership. I joined La Bella Baskets for what it stands: Helping Single Moms. I have several friends who are single moms and I see them struggle with parenting skills and making ends meet. If something ever happened to me and my husband I would want a friend to jump in and help me out like I do them. My dream is to teach other women how to have a business of her own so so she can be there for her family and kids.

My name is Melanie Peterson and I currently work a very stressful full time job.  I was a single mom for a long time until I met my wonderful husband.  I have children very active in sports and other activities and have been unable to be there for them like I want to.  This is a wonderful idea and I just signed up to become a consultant.  My goal is to create a great business for La Bella and myself and provide the opportunity for other people to do the same.  I also want to spend more time with my family and give them more of "ME" The examples of what one can do with the extra income are endless and thats what I like. So many great ideas.  This is right for my family and I am going to work hard to get this going. Thank You! You have a beautiful business and I strongly support single mothers because I have been there.

My name is Kelli Moore. I am from Central Iowa. I have two growing boys. I have tried other home-based businesses before but I wasn't successful in doing something that cost me more money than I could spare. I was raised by a singe parent. My Mom would have greatly benefitted from the Basket of Hope program that La Bella Baskets provides for those who
are struggling.

I love the idea of being able to spend more time at home and possibly doing something for myself as well has helping people with their gifting
needs.
The baskets are beautiful. I look forward to my new "follow the yellow-brick road" journey with La Bella Baskets. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity!
