TESTIMONIAL FROM ONE OF OUR CONSULTANTS... I ordered the Juicy Melon Candle Assortment for a friend of mine. When I received the basket, I could smell the candles through the wrapping. It was such a pleasant melon scent. It was a beautiful basket.
My friend loves candles. She was most pleased with this candle assortment. Thank you.

Our dream was to build a company that would give people the opportunity to start their own online gift basket and flower business without the large investment, headaches and risks. We wanted to give ordinary people to win (regardless who they are or where they come from). Dreams do come true!

Just wanted to share what I learned from my 13 year old son!
This past week my husband took our two sons windsurfing. My oldest son is very comfortable windsurfing, however, my youngest son had never wind surf before. He is my “computer guy” and not very adventurous at all!I must stay I was a little nervous letting him go and windsurf.On top of that, Iheard that the lake water was going to be a little chilly and it was a super windy day so I knew it was going to be a tough day for a “beginner”.However my husband reassured me that it was a perfect day to windsurf.He reassured me they were going to be fine so they packed up and took off that afternoon.
When they returned, my husband shared how proud he was of our youngest son.He said that there were many times our youngest son would fall down, but every time he would fall down, he would get back on the surf board and do it again.
I was so surprised how well he did and how determined he was to learn windsurfing.
As I sit her in front of my computer while, I'm working on this newsletter, I thought about how my 13 year old was a wonderful representation of anyone who wants to achieves success; he jumped on the surfboard, found it slightly uncomfortable, reset himself and then got right back in. In life, and in business, the same technique would prove useful.
Imagine how incredible your life could be if you choose to embrace the opportunities that were presented instead of analyzing every aspect of each situation. Many people choose to ‘test the water’ first and upon finding it slightly chilly will instead either procrastinate or not go in at all. Human nature is inherent to preservation; in other words we tend to protect ourselves from any form of discomfort. Unfortunately most success comes on the other side of a modicum of uneasiness.
Consider a top athlete; their physique, drive and desire to win. Any athlete who achieves success will tell you that some workouts are painful. Some training leaves them breathless, aching and unsettled however the repetition of discomfort eventually leads to a higher level of tolerance which then in turn allows the athlete to win, pushing past the pain.
The success I have achieved in the homebased industry or anything at all for that matter, has been about embracing the unknown, getting uncomfortable and diving in. Personally, I do not want to take years and years to get to the next level; I want to get there yesterday and often that means getting through the unpleasantness of learning and developing myself as a leader.
There have been many times where being uncomfortable has made me want to run and literally get out of the pool. Who wants to face rejection, deception, apathy and attrition? Who wants to be criticized? In all honesty, this is life and all of these things come with doing business, being in relationships or going for any goal. I didn’t choose to run, I choose to face these things and stay the course and in doing so continue to achieve success in many areas of my life.
Like my son, we all have the opportunity to get out for a minute to re-set before getting back on the surfboard. For many successful people meditation, exercise, reading personal development books or listening to audios for a few minutes is all it takes to get back in the game. We all require a moment or two to re-set ourselves and highly successful people get right back in the fray of things because they love the action and excitement. My son taught me that the most fun happens when we are the most uncomfortable.Yes, it may be uncomfortable at first but the sooner we dive in and get going the better the results are going to be.
I encourage you to just get in the pool. Do not wait any longer. Let go of procrastination and just get started. The life of your dreams is waiting for you and the more time you take to ‘test the water’ the more elusive your goals. Just jump in!

Free & Purchased Leads
Do you have people to talk to? Leads are the lifeblood to this business.
There are many lead source companies who advertise a business opportunity and their business is to collect their information and pass it along to someone who is offering what they are looking for. This allows us the opportunity to purchase lists of people from these lead source companies and contact them to see if they are interested in our opportunity.
Meaning, when you call them, they do not know anything about our company. They are "generic leads". So, it is best to email them information about our company and then call them for an interview. Information such as your website & the start today page. http://www.mylabellabaskets.com/starttoday.html
Note: The more qualified lead (and easiest to talk to) are ones in your warm market or responses to your own advertisement.
Go to these sites and order their free (Business Opportunity) leads!
Once you receive the leads, simply email them information about our "business opportunity" then follow up with them!
