Comments:I was first introduced to Amway and really thought this was a way I could creat financial independence. I questioned if it was necessary to "sell" in order to achieve success and was told "No, you do not have to sell anything, but if you want to that is your choice." I expressed my concern regarding the written information that was enclosed with the "Kit" and was once again told to ignore that information because it really did not apply to building a successful business. My "up line"/sponser lied; selling was very necessary to creating a profitible business. Quixtar was supposed to be "the" way for building a great internet business. Every thing I was told was one lie after another. MLMs are really a paramid scheme. Only the "in" or "chosen" are allowed to achieve a level of monetary success. Amway and Quixtar are just another scam to create the idea that "anyone" can achieve finacial success. This opportunity is only allowed to a few chosen people. I lost a lot of money trying to buy from myself and get others to buy for themselves. Actually, it is all about selling and deceit. An honest person cannot make it in this type of business----if you can really call it a "business" rather than a "SCAM". If some one is a really good sales person, then this might be a way for them to make money. Mary Kay Cosmetics, Avon, Fuller Brush, Stanley and many other companies create a false sence of the ability of making a large amount of money; the difference between the companies I have mentioned and Amway & Quixtar is that they are up front that it is all about "sales" while that is not what many of the people who promote Amway/Quixtar tell their new prospect/victom. How sad that I believed in the "Dream" of building a business without realizing it really was all about "sales" and being chosen to be successful in this bogus business.
