Comments:Re: Earnings disclosure. I don't think it's necessary to show my prospects the money I made as an IBO. It's obvious that a lot of money can be made. I pass on to prospects what I have been taught; i.e. "Do the work and you'll make the money." And then we go on to teach them what to do to make the money. If they don't do what is taught, they shouldn't expect the financial rewards. My downline knows this and are honest with themselves and therefore their prospects. But, let me continue, monetary rewards are not all that is received from working with the IBOs in Quixtar. Everyone of my downline has recognized the friendships, the personal growth, the knowledge that they have gained about business and free enterprise and a list of other benefits in addition to the money. We all have reaped rewards from being associated with such an upstanding company, Quixtar and the IBOs. Re: the litigation list. I understand why you are adding this category to the list but, you'll have to think of another way to shut down the scams and companies that misrepresent who & what they are. The litigation list for Quixtar and some of the higher IBOs is, at times, absurd. Disgruntled IBOs and others out to get what they can from a company that is overflowing with integrity. I have never known of a more honest and fair company than Quixtar and it's leaders. They provide all that is needed for new prospects to understand and learn. At times the prospects are at fault. We tell them the truth and they only hear what they want to hear. We tell them that "they will need to work hard to make the money" and all they hear is "make the money". Then, they get mad that they aren't making the money. It's not Quixtar's fault or the fault of the IBO, or the fault of the material handed out to the prospects. They want to hear "get rich quick" and when they don't they sue. How absurd is that? You know as well as I what a good company Quixtar is. Re: giving our prospect a list of local IBOs. I believe that when I go through the process with someone & give him information(which is actually beginning to train him) that I should be the one to register him, if he is interested in the business. Of what purpose is it to give him the names of others not in my business nor from my support organization? Someone who is probably not building the business the way I am. I believe I am the best upline for my prospects because of my integrity & how well I will get him prepared to excel. When people in Real Estate have a client they're working with, they don't advertise it so someone else can talk the client into changing agents. This is no different. I will do my work but I will not do other people's work. Let them have that experience. It's called free enterprise. Re: 7 day wait. I will not sponsor someone unless he is excited and ready to start. This may take 2 hours or 2 weeks. But when he is ready to go, He needs to GO! Let him start when he's ready. In real estate, when a person is ready to buy, he's not told that he needs to wait 7 days. Why should a prospect have to wait 7 days to start his business? Don't take the joy and excitement away from him.
