Comments:I am responding about the proposed FTC Ruling. My husband and I have been business owners for 20 years. Besides the money that we've made the association with the people of highest character and highest business values, I can't put a price on that. The opportunity has been one of the best things that has happened to our family. The success of the business is based on the way we prospect and show the plan, and your proposed ruling is of concern. Having a prospect wait 7 days before registering takes away the excitement they experience in starting a new endevor and the information they are given after seeing the plan does not take 7 days to review or answer any of their questions. We offer money back if they are not satisfied, so I feel Quixtar has addressed this issue. The next concern is providing a list of 10 references, names, addresses and phone numbers of other IBOs in the area. Everywhere you go today is the Privacy act Wouldn't this be an invasion of privacy of each business owner and also having to disclose your income. If the income is an issue do an overall average income ( average monthly income) when showing the opportunity. Everyones income varies depending on their work ethic. Giving a prospect a list of all lawsuits,arbitrations, or other claims for the past 10 years involving Quixtar or IBOs, whether or not the accusations are true. This is like going on the web and reading everyones opinions on Quixtar whether they are true or not. The company has rules and ethics set up for us that we follow. Thank you for the opportunity to offer my opinion and views.
