Comments:I have been involved as an independent IBO for several years primaraly for the purpose of saving money by purchasing products and services at wholesale prices instead of going to the store and paying retail. I have only started to build the business in the last couple of months. I love the opportunity because you are paid for the work you do not off the work of others and it doesn't matter who you are or your background. Everyone starts at the same place "zero". I believe having a waiting period for registering is not needed when even the fees to become an IBO are refundable if you are not satisified. Having to disclose your finances to a prospect is also crazy. As mentioned before, everyone starts in the same place and everyone's business is just that, their own business. Having a disclosure for every income level would also be inacurate in the sense that it also takes into account people just using the products and not just the business builders. There is a large money difference there. As far as having to give prospects the filed lawsuits...let me put it this way...does any employer have to give this info to prospective employees? Besides, all that information is available to anyone that wants to check into it and we're not out to hide anything anyway. I have been taught that when we show this opportunity we tell prospects they cannot sign anything or we are not there to sell them, just to give them information so they can make an educated decision. This is working well for me and I feel very comfortable working with people in this manner of not putting pressure on anyone. I hope this helps and is what you are needing and looking for.
