Comments:I have been registered in Quixtar for 5 1/2 years. When I first heard about this opportunity I wasn't sure what I thought about listening to the business plan, but when I went to see what it was all about I was able to see that this business was different than some others that I have heard of. My life from the time I registered this business to now can not be compared. I was told in the plan that this was not a get rich quick program that it was a building wealth plan. I am not a millionaire and am not upset that I have been in this long and have not achieved that status because I understood that from the beginning that it takes time to make money. Just the same we make sure that our prospects who are investigating this business for themselves understand that same thing. We feel that the best IBO is one who is fully informed so that they can be committed to this business. But it is more than the money, I have learned important principles of managing money and leadership skills through the books that I have read and the information that we receive from our up line leaders. Over all this business is very inexpensive to get registered, it cost $360 to get started that gets you the website registration, a product pack, some education materials and tickets to the next function and it is totally money back guarantee. All of the items are optional but it is our suggested way to get registered. We have had a couple people come to a meeting who bought tickets and they didn't think it was for them and we gave their money back, no questions asked. We work in a word of mouth business so it does us no good to create negative feedback toward our business. In our profession it would be very difficult and pointless to make someone wait 7 days to register their company. By the time that they register they have normally been investigating the business for at least a week or so, that would make the getting started process very slow and redundant. I believe our business should be treated with the same respect as any other corporation. Providing our income to our prospect is well know as bad edict is the everyday work force and in corporations. When we are applying for a job we don't have the right to asked for our employer's pay and personal information so that we can do background checks to allow us to know who we are working for would be unheard of. If anything we should be doing background checks on our prospect so that we know who we are going to be working with since we invest a lot of our time and money in their business with no upfront return. I understand that there is a need to protect citizens from other business out there that might be out to get something for nothing. But I don't believe that these proposed suggestions are the way to regulate this industry, they are very extreme and in reality will end up hurting the innocent as well. We are helping people to provide and additional income into their families and in return it is helping the government by helping us as United States Citizens to become more self reliant and a wealthier country. In our registration forms we show the average IBO income to be $115 and they have to sign that they read and understood that information. We take pride in the fact that we are up front and honest about our business. We are excited about our future with Quixtar and will always run our business with the utmost integrity. We are proud to be in a country that allows such freedoms for us to be in this free enterprise system. In order to have the freedom to enterprise we must have a free enterprise system that is not bound by stifling regulations. I see these freedoms that we have been given slowly being taken away. Always with the best intentions but to no avail it will destroy all that has been fought for by those who have passed. I hope that all of these concerns will be considered and I appreciate the opportunity that I had to express myself on this matter.
