Comments:1. We have been and IBOs for approximately 11 years. The Quixtar business has benefited our family in so many ways and we are gracious that another person introduced us to the opportunity which it provides. More than income, the association with so many wonderful people who are at heart willing to reach out and help others, who wish to be helped as well, the overall benefit is indeed more than just income. When we initially registered, we were given adequate information to make a decision with regard to making the decision to register. All questions were answered at the time and after meeting others in the business, we were completely satisfied with our decision have never regretted it. When we have sponsored others, we also do our best to make sure that they get the equivalent solid information as we did so that they can make an informed decision for themselves as well. When sponsoring others, we make sure to tell them that this business is a business of personal growth and that their success will come in direct proportion to their commitment and that success will indeed come from their efforts, as well as being part of a team, and that true personal success can never be achieved without participation and at some point developing a leadership role for others. This is why we express the importance of joining our voluntary leadership organization which will help them achieve success through utilizing the Quixtar business opportunity. 2. With regard to prospecting others, it is extremely important that once they have made an informed decision, that they are able to immediately join the business team so that we can all work together. If prospects had to have a waiting period, especially when many others of their acquaintances and friends wanted to join along with them, this could postpone the team development significantly and stymie development growth for all involved. To immediately place informed prospects into the business is to promote growth and provide optimism. To inhibit growth through a waiting period would also suggest doubt that their informed decision is not perhaps as informed as they think it might have been. Thus, that is why adequate and accurate information be given to each prospect as they are shown the opportunity that they are given. In essence, a waiting period would be a significant detraction, suggest doubt and lack of integrity and inhibit profit for those who want to move forward quickly and responsibly. 3. When a prospect becomes an IBO, he/she/they are starting their own Independent Business in conjunction with the help of others who all benefit accordingly. There is in place, a direct line of sponsorship where all involved help each other. If it was mandated that the new prospect be given references, they could call others who may or may not be known to them and not only within their line of sponsorship. Even if they were within their line of sponsorship, it is possible that they could be sponsored out of place and not be given proper placement with respect to their original contact. As well, it would also NOT be a good idea if personal information were to be given out to prospective prospects. This would violate privacy as well as potential trouble. This is why we encourage new prospects to come to an Open meeting and meet other associates in this manner. With regard to providing a list of possible litigation from anyone within the organization, this would be unnecessary since there is oversight already in place by the corporation. If any misconduct were deemed inappropriate, they would be discharged or dealt with accordingly from within. 4. With regard to earnings, instead of telling what we make, we always show/mention the average corporate statistic which is listed on the SA-4400 form. Earnings are in accordance to your efforts. The average is essentially the fair way to mention it. This business is more than just making money.
