Comments:Thank you for examining the business practices of the many companies offering their opportunities to the general public today. We agree with you that unethical practices should be stopped before the companies involved take advantage of innocent people who are not aware of scams, fly-by-night companies, pyamid schemes, etc. In our 20 plus years of experience working first with the Amway Corporation and later Quixar.com, we have talked with a number of people who have been taken advantage of by other unethical companies/people and have tried to help them understand why our business opportunity is different, entirely ethical, and maintained by a corporation that in the 20 plus years of our working with them have done exactly what they promised to do. As a former school teacher and my husband, a former banker and CPA, we have been very pleased with the ethical practices encouraged by both corporations. We have lived on our business income for over 15 years now and have eliminated all debt because of our business and the principles we have learned. We do not give out our income numbers to others because we do not think it is necessary. We did not tell others our salaries when we were in our former occupations so we have continued that practice. We believe that the registration information offered by Quixtar is more than adequate as well as training provided both corporately and in the field. We also tell people for the modest amount (about $125) to get started, they can achieve a very good lifestyle if they do the work involved and follow the practices that provide results. We tell them there are other serendipities that include friendship, mentorship, and a good support group if they choose. We also like the goal-setting aspect, as we have achieved many of our goals and look forward to achieving future goals. We thank you for allowing input both at the corporate level and out in the field before you institute any major changes in your policies. We believe that instituting ethical practices is a great idea, but as far as our working with Quixtar, there is no need to change anything they allow, as we have found they have all the bases covered. Thank you again for helping to make the business world safer for all of us.
