Comments:I have been a Quixtar I.B.O. since November of 2002. I present the business plan to prospects the same way it was shown to me, with information about the business system, answers to their questions, and a follow up contact within a few days. There is no guarantee promised - just a guarantee of an opportunity - some hard work - and the help of a team working alongside to guide and support. For $350.00 a person can register as an I.B.O. that includes the fee for one year and about $300.00 of products. The registration fee is refundable up to 6 months if the person decides the business is not for them. Regarding the proposals: 1) Since there is no pressure - no "hounding" - just the presenting of information, the 7-day waiting period should not apply to Quixtar. The small money investment also supports a position of not having a 7 - day waiting period. A person's life savings are not required to get started in this business- just a measly $350.00. 2) Requiring litigation should be the rule only if stores like Walmart or Kmart are also mandated to supply a list of the legal cases pending against them. 3) Part of the business presentation includes discussing the average monthly income for an I.B.O. 4) Providing references to a new contact would put the presenting I.B.O. in an unfavorable position - a popularity contest with other I.B.O.'s. This is a business where everyone has a chance - not just the people who "look good." This business impacts people who get involved in the educational system. Allow us the freedom to continue to build successful businesses and make a positive difference in people's lives.
