Comments:As a Quixtar IBO, I know the people in my organization, and I have no idea who may be in any other organization - requiring that I provide references who live in my area who belong to a different organization would not provide useful information to a prospect because they may operate in a different manner with regard to income claims and business support provided. Requiring me to substantiate my earnings bears no relevance on the income that they may create for themselves. Our income is based on the work that we do and if they do more, they earn more. Requiring me to provide info on how many people quit does not seem to be relevant - people quit their jobs for any number of reasons which those companies are not required to keep track of or disclose - why should we have to? If the opportunity is not for the one who quit, it does not mean that it would be "wrong" for the person I am recruiting now. Disclosing litigation against someone who is a Quixtar IBO in a different organization from me is also irrelevant since I have no control over their presentation and practices. Only litigation relevant to me or my direct line of sponsorship would have any relevance to a prospect as it could indicate a lack of integrity in our organization. However, I don't know how I would keep track of the list since I don't believe there is any clearinghouse list that I can browse. Also, how often would I be required to update the list?
