I had heard of the CAbi clothing company and that they offered a network marketing plan selling their clothing as a home business, so thought I would check it out and write a review on it.
I first wanted to know about Carol Anderson, the designer. She has been designing clothes for over 25 years with her personal touch. She is a designer that pays a lot of attention to the details and unique styling in her line of clothing.
She started in a garage in Burbank CA in 1977. She loved designing clothes and told some of her friends that she wanted to design her own line of clothing. She was then just out of graduate school when she and her friend Jan January put their $800 together and started a workshop in her garage. They believed that their concept would sell. They focused on great fashion, excellent fit and quality.
In 2001 Carol took her clothing line out of the stores and started to market them with a MLM. She is calling her company CAbi (Carol Anderson by Invitation). The company is based in Rancho Dominguez, California. Carol Anderson’s clothing designs are sold exclusively in homes by CAbi Independent Sales Consultants. From the website I was able to gather that CAbi is enabling women the opportunity for women across the country to help them to make a career that will fit any lifestyle.
I could not find anything else on the career opportunity itself other than the consultant will host clothing shows in the homes of her customers. The consultant, from what I have read in my search, does have to come up with quite an investment to get started and it will take about 3 seasons to really start seeing a great profit. She sets up all the clothing in her inventory to allow the women to try them on. It is hard when there are women of so many different sizes and needs to have something for all of them.
There was a blog that I had come across where she had done an interview with a consultant from the company, but the company found out and made her take it off. The blog was very positive and actually was helping and bringing great advertising for the website and their company. But whether it was the company or they not wanting a consultant representing them, we don’t know. Apparently that consultant is no longer with the company.
They have a website but it runs very slow. The website really does not show anything other than a few models in a few outfits. It is done is a flash video form and takes so long to switch pages. There is only a small paragraph on the career opportunity and the main page that talks about Carol, the designer, does not even finish the line at the bottom of the page.
I came across another blog on CAbi that stated about some information regarding the number of associates being limited by zip code. It seems that Carol does not want this to grow too big, maybe to keep her line limited for the smaller market, not the masses.
Sorry to say I don’t have much more information than this. Information is pretty hard to find on the Internet. If this is the company for you, you may want to call the company directly, that may be the only way to find out anymore.
