Comments:I'm so glad to have this chance to share my husband Hugh's and my experiences of the last 11 years of building an Amway/Quixtar business. I am a portrait artist, and have been so for over 40 years, my husband Hugh graduated from the Naval Academy and went on to get three masters degrees, one in mechanical engineering, one in nuclear eng., and an executive MBA from Pitt, all to better take care of our family financially. So when he first heard about this opportunity, he said it just looked too good to be true, and remained skeptical for several years. I, however, was excited from the first, being already familiar with the excellent core line products from Amway as a customer. Hugh took a few years, checking out the corporation, trying to improve on the business compensation plan, and perhaps just as importantly, getting to know our sponsors, the McLeans,and our upline, the Donovans. We went to the meetings, and listened to tapes and read books like How to Win Friends and Influence Others and Kiyosaki's book, Cashflow Quadrant,all of which helped Hugh and me change our thinking from being employees, to that of being business owners. Two years ago, Hugh was able to retire from running other people's businesses to building our own Quixtar business. Our daughter, Liz, is a physician,, and she and her husband Peter have a quixtar business with us. It is such a great life As I said, I am an artist, not into numbers, etc., like my husband, but we agree that the Quixtar Corporation is vigilant in policing fraudulent practices in our business. I believe that Quixtar has in place all the safeguards necessary to make totally unneeded the proposed rules by the FTC. We already disclose the average income of an average Independent Business Owner, we have a 30 money back guarantee on not only buying products, including shipping, but also, for the signup costs for a new IBO. Thank you for listening... I think you could use our system as a model for other multi levels on the internet.
