Comments:I have been an active IBO for 15 years. I have reached the level of Ruby and receive income monthly based on my ability to create volume. Quixtar fits into my lifestyle nicely. I retired from the Marine Corps and truly believe I helped many young Marines to be better in my 23 years service. However, in the time I have been involved with Quixtar I believe I have been able to assist more people in becoming successful in Quixtar. Plus, the skills taught have helped many people to become better in any endeavor they pursued. The training programs available are second to none and help people believe in themselves and become more productive members of society. I registered as an IBO and never felt pressured. All figures used to quote potential earnings were and still are on all literature provided to prospects. I understood it required work, just like everything else in life, and have always ensured prospects clearly understood it took WORK. The only get rich quick thing I'm aware of is the lottery. I got involved because it made financial sense. I believe if I had been told I'd have to wait 7 days I would never have registered. I would have had too much time to second guess whether it was the right thing to do for me. I believe most people get involved because they are looking for a financial opportunity to better themselves and logically it makes sense. If prospects have to wait 7 days to register it also slows down considerably their opporunity to create income quickly. I believe the simpler the process is to get started it benefits all parties concerned. I believe it would be an invasion of privacy to provide other IBO's personal information to potential prospects. It's entirely possible prospects could be getting involved just to access that kind of information. It seems there are enough challenges protecting everybody's personal information without making it more complex. I have always encouraged prospects to talk with other IBO's because they are exposed to the diversity of the people involved. It also gives them a sense of is this real or just a pipe dream. It's essential to ensure prospects are given exposure to others to help them realize that they too can be successful with Quixtar. When we sit down with a prospect they are provided with a SA4400 which clearly shows the average monthly gross income. All literature provided has the same information in bold letters. I don't believe any individual should have to provide proof of their Quixtar income. I could show them my 1099 but that's not a true picture of my net income because it doesn't reflect anything about business expenses, etc. Anyone involved less than a year wouldn't have a 1099. I also believe that providing everyone with copies of my financial records could pose a threat to one's personal security.
