Comments:I am writing this to answer your questions and post some concerns. I've been an Independent business owner with the Quixtar model for about 1 year. It has been the best thing that has happened to me and my family. We joined the Quixtar business being given more than enough information so I could make an intellegent decision for my family and future. Let me guide you through this information highway.I was asked to come to meeting in which I was given a presentation on the business. This information alone is more than enough to give anybody the ability to make an educated decision .I then had an oppurtunity to speak with IBO's that were there, the speaker and most importantly the other candidates of whom were just given the same informtion I was. So I was able to gain information and advantages of what the Quixtar business has to offer through the IBO's perspective. Ask the other new candidates what they saw in the oppurtunity as well, and was incouraged to do so! My wife and I were ready to sign up the next day. Along with the info that was layed out before us we were given an information pack that went over the presentation in a written form so i could scan over it at my leisure. It also contained some cd's to listen to that were heplful. The last thing that was made to our advantage was the business website that told us where the business came from and where they were going in the future.You can surely see that we recieve and give more than the ample amount of information.We even encourage the new candidate to come to our workshops and conferences to see if this is for them. The seven day waiting period is a very bad recipe in dealing with business.The stock exchange is dealt with in mere moments of time. If they were to wait seven days or even sixty seconds to act on something they could lose thier whole currency for their future. Unlike the stock exchange the Quixtar business model ,works with people at their own pace . If someone would like to join the evening they see a presentation they certainly may do that, On the same coin they may want to pray about it, or are going on vacation or may want to read every single thing in our info pack etc... My point is; we work with them and sometimes they even take longer than your seven days suggested. We are a people business working with real people that have real things that come up, and we deal with it.Most business is ran on such a fine line that they may not have that kind of understanding from a buyer,shipper,or even their boss. We do! Divulging money matters, this is a big no! no! This is something private. I'm sure Donald Trump is not forced to tell someone he's mentoring how much he's making or what he's worth. This can do 2 things .Discourage or incourage.Why even take that chance. In our presentation we give out some financial numbers to show any candidate the potential that we offer. These numbers are also minimums so we aren't blowing our candidates out of the water.It works! Dicussing exact money with a candidate (might) hurt there belief level . It may make them think they couldn't possibly make that much money. In time as they become close with a big money earner they may feel like telling them exactly what they make but, that should be entirely their decision. My ending statement is this the Quixtar model is the best business to be in. It gives the best information to allow an intellegent decision to be made.It's a people business that deals with everyone on their level. It shouldn't be pigeon hold to have to wait 7 days when other business is run on split decision. We should be alowed the same courtesy. Money is made and lost everyday around the world but not everybody should be made privy to their wins and losses. This proposal would do far more destuction to a fantastic business avenue than it would benefit it.
