I should have most of the book memorized by the end of the year I refer to it so often – LOL! It’s an excellent book and I’m so very glad I bought it. It is definitely, in my opinion, the gift basket business “bible” and no gift basket business should be without it!!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you, Shirley. How to Start a Home-Based Gift Basket Business is the ‘Bible’ for the gift basket industry! Time and again I have returned to the book (after originally reading it cover to cover) for advice, guidance and simple answers. I want to thank you for paving the way, and this is not an overstatement, I don’t know if I would have taken the plunge and started Pretty Gifted had it not been for your book.

I just wanted to thank you for giving me HOPE.

Already, I have made my business plan, had my logo designed, my website is under construction; I have ordered supplies, purchased office equipment, and decided on my client-base.

Although I have a bit of talent in making “pretty things”, I had no knowledge of how to proceed beyond that point. Your book was a plethora of information, easy to understand, full of references that I’ve already utilized. I loved the check lists. I thank the Lord for bringing you into my life and giving me hope for a bright and exciting future.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Just a brief note to thank you for a most excellent, thoughtful and detailed book on starting a home based gift basket business. Both my husband and I read it from cover to cover and since he has started 3 other companies, he was somewhat familiar with some of the requirements of business start-ups, but certainly not to the extend that you have detailed in your book. Thank you again for helping us with your most excellent book.

I came across your book, How to Start a Home-Based Gift Basket Business. I picked it up, leafed through it, and then found myself in a corner reading it. It offered good sound information, so I purchased it. Even though I have made gift baskets in the past, your book and DVD helped reinforce my training as well as offer new ideas on containers and occasions for baskets. I am thankful that you have shared your knowledge of the industry with beginners like me.

I have always dreamed of starting my own home-based business and it never occurred to me to sell gift baskets until my friend suggested it to me. I started researching on the Internet and found your book to be a God-send. It has been my roadmap in the beginning stages of my business. I’m still in the planning/researching phase and will move on to the next step soon – building my own career! THANK YOU!

Just wanted to let you know I enjoyed your book. I purchased it earlier in the week and have thoroughly digested it already. I started my business about six months ago and am really enjoying it. Your book did exactly what it said – provided a helpful resource that I think will present a lot of time consuming trial and error.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and interest of the basket industry work our class. Not only did you give us the educational “stuff,” but also the day-to-day things one needs to start in the business. Personally, you gave me the courage to explore my ideas. Thanks again.

This is the best motivation anyone has ever given me! I have just started my gift basket business and your book is really helping me make sense of all of it! I just wanted to say thanks!

About a year and a half ago, I wanted to start a gift basket business but could not find any comprehensive information in book form. I just happened into a bookstore and glanced at the business books thinking that there would be nothing there. I saw your book and began to read it. I could not get to the cash register quick enough. Your book is about as perfect a book as I have ever seen. You have everything that I need to have at my fingertips. I look at you as my gift basket guru and hope to accomplish as much as you have. Thank you for putting it together.
