Comments:Comments on FTC's proposed "Trade Regulation Rule on Business Opportunities: We have been active independent business owners for over 30 years, which includes the past seven years with Quixtar. We have benefited personally and financially from the income derived from out business. We continue to be impressed with the integrity of Quixtar. They continue to offer a money back guarantee on all of their products and treat people with integrity and fairness. We have emphasized this is not a "get rich quick business" and have made it a point to state it takes effort. We spend considerable time on finding out what goals a person has and what their commitement is, so we can be effective in helping them achieve success. Each business owner is rewarded for the volume of products sold. We feel sharing their personal information would be an infringement and security risk. Having a seven day waiting period is not only cumbersome but unreasonable. The registration fee for an opportunity to be an independent business owner is only $125, which includes products that are refundable. We encourage people to ask any questions they may have. Quixtar requires they see a full marketing presentation and there are also business previews available to meet other Quixtar business owners. We feel many people would miss a viable, ethical business opportunity that could improve their life, if there were so many requirements. The Quixtar business opportunity should not be penalized for being ethical.
