Comments:I have been an IBO with Quixtar for four years. Being a part of this business has had a positive impact on me and all the active members of my team in both finance and attitude. Quixtar is a model direct selling business. As far as your proposal for requiring information to a prospect before registering I am all for that upon there request. I always encourage everyone to research as much as they want and I'm always happy to provide information. As for waiting seven days before registering, that time period should be up to the individual. I spent thirty days while researching, but that was my choice. I would hate to see a government agency try to take away our God given right to choose. Now, your proposal for ten local IBO names and numbers would cripple my business as well as every other Ibos business. This would cripple all Ibos because the prospect may be convinced by another IBO to join there group. In addition, the idea of every new IBO in the Waterbury area knowing my name, address, and phone number is an infringement on my rights for privacy. Unfortunately, some shady people get involved in this business and if there not in my group, I don't want them knowing my information. In conclusion, I think the idea of your proposal is great for getting rid of the scams out there, but it needs to be rethought so it doesn't harm the honest people trying to build a legitimate business.
