Comments:We have been an IBO w/Quixtar for 6 years. We have met several of our goals, and working to show others the same. Our Quixtar Business is our lifestyle, we have met so many people that we now call family and friends since starting this business. We have encouraged, and helped others to reach goals and levels that they have set in this business. When we registered, we received all the information the we needed to start our business and we provide others with the same information because the business is duplicatible, built on accountability and integrity. We make sure that each prospect kinows that this is NOT a get rich quick scheme, that work is required, we also let them know that they can get all their money back within 180 days or 6 months time, with the exception of S&H. Registeration costs between $250, unless the prospect do not want sample packages. If prospects had to wait 7 days and we as IBO are traveling this will hold our business up and the prospects, and it will prevent the 1-on-1 time that we would be able to spend with them. If we had to provide a list of IBOs there is a chance that a prospects would sign with another IBO because of the fact that he or she did not know that the other IBO was in the business.I do believe that God has each person set where HE wants them and HE has a plan for our lives. Our businesses are duplicatible, so there are at least one other IBO present during the business plan and registration, depending on what night or day it is there could be several. Prospects meet other IBOS when showing the business, during a follow up and during opened meeting that's provide weekly. If IBOs had to provide litigation involving Quixtar, it would be UNFAIR, the information can be obtained, but it would be very hard to get it over the city, states, and other countries where we want to do business. This business is an opportunity, no guarantees, that the business will work for you.we provide copies of received checks and let prospects know how much our lifestyle has changed, testimony is allways the best way. You can not teach someone what you don't know. It would not be appropiate for IBOs with Quixtar or any other Home-Based to provide financial statements, because it's like you are punishishing the small business for wanting to do better. I would like to ask does WALMART OR KMART OR TARGET or any other franchise or IBO provide statements? I don't think so, this would be UNFAIR TO IBOs.
