La Bella Gift Baskets scam review complaints

La Bella Gift Baskets is a business I got involved with about a month ago. I want to first explain why I decided to fork out some cash rather than make money totally free and online line. I’ve been hearing about this company for over a year now. Members of another website, some of whom have been blogging about their adventures. I’ve been watching their blogs out of curiosity on and off. So I know these people are real people with the same problems and achievements we have.  I was in the craigslist, jobs section believe it or not and found an offer saying what all the attributes were about joining.
Because this only reminded me about something I was thinking about doing I actually thanked the person who posted it for reminding me. I thought by now I really need to invest in myself. But before I tell you my reasons for spending money I have to tell you that I noticed the direction of this blog was turning out to be more like a “seek and destroy” site as time went on. In my quest to warn people about the pitfalls of online earning it turned into something very negative instead of spreading good cheer. I think that’s kind of self destructive and I don’t know how other people can do that on a daily basis! With that I hope that you understand why I have to spend some positive energy.
I consider the $20 membership fee an investment in myself.  I am not a flowery, frilly type of person so the idea of a gift basket made up by someone else to say the absolutely perfect thing got me to thinking. There’s lot more people out there who are just like me! Companies are “downsizing” their marketing and customer service depts. There are people who don’t have the kind of creativity or the time to make a creative gift and give it as a hostess gift or thank you gift. Why not ask someone to make it and ship it where ever they want it?
I spent $1.98 to take this thing for a spin “around the block”. I seriously liked what I saw. It taps everything I enjoy and leaves the choices up to me. I bought my first business cards from their recommendation for an inexpensive printer. I paid the $20 to join La Bella and then another $7 something for shipping 250 business cards of my choise. I know it will take a good year to build my business to fully operational so I won’t tell you I made my first million already.
I like talking to complete strangers. I love being out where there are lots of people enjoying themselves. To me this is the kind of community living I was accustomed to growing up. It’s where there is no stress, no tight schedules and plenty of people to have fun with. This is why it caught my eye.
Two ladies, Mia and Janet dreamed the whole thing up. It’s one year old but there are no flukes about it and looks like it will be around for a while. It’s young enough that I am considered one of its “pioneers”. They have complete training that goes with it and it comes with your very own website. You can speak directly with Mia every Tues in the company conference call. The members can communicate with each other in the forum. And Mia and Janet respond to your emails quickly.
So I’m taking my smile to the streets and doing some online advertising. I wanted to completely test this thing out before talking to you about it, because as you know I will never say just join something without trying it out myself first. I will share more with you as time goes on. For now I’m just going to concentrate on getting the program to pay me some money! I’ll be giving you full reports at least on a monthly basis in the meantime.

  1. The report is right there! I've researched this company and many others. I outlined what I looked for and how I came to the determination that it is not a scam and joined myself. I left no stone unturned that I know of.

  2. On Sunday, July 11th, at the end of your post, you said, "I will share more with you as time goes on."...

    You stated in the last sentence, "I’ll be giving you full reports at least on a monthly basis in the meantime."

    The person above asked about the monthly based reports that you said you would post.

    I believe there are more people who may be asking the same question...However, you seem to feel you've already accomplished this...but you haven't.

  3. I'm sorry. I've been temporarily out of commission by illness. After my two strokes I was surprised to have some problems with motor skills and fell in August. I am hoping to return some time this summer!

  4. Yes, REALLY! Today I can say I learned 90% I know about online marketing from Labella Baskets! I now have a new company that will compliment LaBella Baskets. I still get about a call a month about LaBella and still think they're a wonderful company. They speak the truth and give their consultants every tip they have to succeed. Meanwhile I will probably rejoin them in a couple of months. I sell my products at Art and craft shows.

    1. Hi Cathy,

      I'm currently with La Bella as well. I hope you back to 100% percent health. That's what is most important. I love this company so much and just waiting to see what is next.

  6. I'm a 62 year old woman on a fixed income living in Central CA. I see where La Bella has waived their start up fee and that for $2 I can try this for 1 week.. That is great. I also see the monthly fee which right now for me is tough. So my question here is, how long does it take to actually start earning money with La Bella.

    1. I must apologize, I just saw your comment today. How quickly you can make money working with LaBella all depends on the following you already have, if you do shows, and if you have an online presence already. Your contacts, and/or your ability to gain more contacts dictates your ability to establish an income from LaBella. Janice and Mia share everything they know about starting your way to making money, the rest depends on your ability and time to commit toward establishing any business.Please feel free to contact me again if you have more questions!

    2. I've been with LBB for over 3yrs. They are not a scam. The company is a legitimate home business that provides outstanding training and support. The co-founders truly want all consultants to achieve their goals. They have given us an amazing new compensation program with 5 areas to earn, one being monthly Residual Income, is changing many consultants lives. I for one have reached my first goal of $1,000 in monthly residual, I know my next goal will also be achieved. To succeed in this business you have to follow the suggestions on the online training site, listen to company conference calls, join our Facbook group, market consistently by getting the word out about your business and you will get results! Please watch the 5 Types of Income video if you would like to learn more about our new compensation program. http://angela.labellabaskets.com/earnincome.php I'm glad to help you if you have any questions.

  9. I understand that the answer to my question is going to be circumstantial based on the time and skills I have and put towards the business, but if I work hard and put time into the business is La Bella Baskets a good way to make living on average (I know some months will be better than other)? Is it or can it be more than just extra spending money along side your current full time job?

  10. I too took my time to research many work at home opportunities. There are too many scams out there to mention, but La Bella Baskets is a genuine company and it does work. I would be happy to share my story. Contact me at iceni.labellabaskets@gmail.com

  11. When it comes to homebase business or small business or any kind of business just starting off, the first year can be kind of slow when it comes to racking in the money for some people. It all depends on how one is marketing and getting the news out there. I think a combination of online and offline marketing is good. I just joined Labella Basket about two months ago and my goal is to bring in at lease $600.00 before the year is out. Some consultants have already reached this mark and then some. If I reach the mark before the year is out great!!!! If its slow going, that ok too. I am not throwing in the towel on the first year. So, if it is slow going for the new consultants, please hang in there and don't give up. At lease give it a year or so.

    1. so you only hope to make $600 dollars between May and end of year? You think that's good? It is pennies!!!

    2. Hi! And thanks for chiming in! For you it may just be pennies, however very often some people are selling Labella Baskets because they teach you how to run a business on line. After that you can expand on what you've learned! I did just that! Some of us are very hard at work caring for aging parents, raising children, you name it. So these people can, at the very least, make a little money and take care of their families at the same time. Believe me, the ability to learn how to run an online business and feel like a wage earner is a blessing for me. I should be feeling trapped inside my home because of my two strokes! Instead I run my business online! I also learn how to run an online business without leaving my home. My caregivers are very exited for me as they see me grow my business!
      I see growth above and beyond my expectations! Now that makes me CRY! Who knew?
