img_0013If you’re serious about starting or growing a part-time or full-time gift basket business, this is the place for you, and I’m honored that you’re here.

Since 1990, consulting with everyone from home-based entrepreneurs to small shop owners to Macy’s, I know what it takes to succeed and will work with you to achieve your dreams. However, your ultimate success depends on your own commitment, so if you are prepared, we can work together.

I have worked with thousands of people who are new to gift baskets and current designers who need support to build their businesses. Most likely, I have worked with someone just like you. However, if I haven’t (and I highly doubt that to be true), you are not at a disadvantage.

Here’s why:

You have preconceived ideas about gift baskets that I can help you with including how to design, where to buy products, how to market online and offline, where to find corporate customers, and how to avoid common mistakes that sabotage your success.

You may think that working with lots of people who make gift baskets creates a lot of repetition, but the opposite is true. What my current and former clients have found exceedingly helpful is that I bring a fresh perspective to the types of gift baskets they wish to create because each of you resides in a different location. That, in itself, makes your situation new and different from other designers.

Through me, you’ll get lots of help and access to tons of resources, and best of all, your gift baskets will stand out as unique and appealing to those who receive them even if they’ve seen gift baskets in stores or purchased gift baskets from other designers. In addition, the marketing plan we create together and you take action to complete will draw clients to you so your sales are as big as their appreciation.

How I’m different from other gift basket experts

As a gift basket expert and consultant, I ONLY work with individuals, independent gift basket business owners, and other retailers who wish to add gift basket sections to their stores. In other words, gift baskets – and only gift baskets – are my specialty.

Because my focus is an exclusive niche, what you get with me is no-nonsense, concentrated expertise on what works for you. I am the expert in this industry, and that’s why all of my clients get great results (and I add a heaping helping of enthusiasm, inspiration and encouragement, which ALWAYS helps with your success!).

Which personalities I prefer to work with, and what’s expected of you:

My program, officially known as the Golden Basket Club, is for people who are excited and serious about creating unique and elegant gift basket designs and, if desired, building a business through marketing that caters to corporations, institutions, and other buyers who purchase often.

If you’re making gift baskets for fun, expect to go through the rigors of creating professionally-styled gift baskets from the bottom up. There are no shortcuts or techniques overlooked to master this craft.

In the case of business ownership, I’m a go-getter who’s known to work best with aspiring entrepreneurs who are also high achievers, people who are ready to build on their love of making gift baskets that resemble works of art and are prepared to take the steps necessary to get clients and build a high-achieving business.

Consider what you’ll accomplish with me to be a hands-on, no excuses learning course. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action, and you will receive full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: a full-fledged, systematic and fully-operational gift basket business that brings you clients, big profits, and lots the benefits.

What type of person is NOT right for this program

After 24 years of working with many types of personalities, I’ve learned that I’m very selective in who I work with and who is chosen as my clients. There are times when I must gently turn away people who aren’t suited for my program and won’t get the results they desire or expect. It simply wouldn’t be fair to them.

If you’re making gift baskets as a serious hobby, this program is NOT for those who don’t have enough money to buy the recommended products and supplies that it takes to succeed. It’s also important to have dedicated space to turn into a studio that’s used solely for gift basket making.

My coaching help is NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. Experience has taught me that people in financial crisis do not trust my recommendations, so the tasks necessary to successfully complete the goals we identify together do not work (probably because a lot of time is spent worrying about where to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment).

If your situation is in either of these categories, it’s absolutely okay. We’ve all experienced financial problems at one point or another. Here are three things you can do right now:

1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or, at the very least, a part-time job, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide you with more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on the goals we set together. Once you begin making those beautiful gift baskets on a regular basis, you can then start reducing the hours you work at that other job and focus on your business.

2. Sign up for the free Basket Biz newsletter that you’ll receive by Email. The free information will keep you in the loop and get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one to one.

3. Read and subscribe to the weekly blog. It tells you all about gift baskets, and like the newsletter mentioned above, keeps you in the loop until you’re ready to work with me.

These three steps will help you get primed to work together. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get started. I’m here when you need me.

Another type of person I’m unable to work with (and there are no exceptions) is the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the Golden Basket Club. If you are one of these people, it’s okay. However, I respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. I don’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
