Comments:I have been affiliated with Quixtar for approximately five years and, even though I completely support FTC's efforts to terminate fraudulent business opportunities, I find the proposed rules crippling to our opportunity. The primary reason individuals become involved with the Quixtar business is because it is an opportunity for them to own their own business, therefore the success of their registering Independent Business Owner (IBO) has no bearing on their success. Each IBO's success is purely performance based; if they do the work the way the organization recommends, they will succeed. Everyone has their own definition of success as well. To disclose all of the information proposed in the rules would be irrelevant to the decision-making process of each prospect. When I was first introduced to the Quixtar opportunity, I had adequate information to make a good business decision and I haven't looked back since. I think everyone deserves the same opportunity.
