Comments:I have been an IBO for the past few years, have achieved the platinum level thus far and have been able to successfully maintain this status for the past three years. Based on the solidity of my business I am on my way to achieving my next goal which is emerald in the next fiscal year. As for me, being a single mom with six kids the Quixtar busines fit perfectly into my lifestyle. I am very fortunate to have my five older children who are all over the age of eighteen be in business with me. For us it is truly a family business because we are able to work together to achieve our dreams, the American Dream that we migrated to the USA for. This business has afforded me the time to spend with my youngest daughter who is in elementary school and needs alot of attention. The same way I was introduced and informed before making a decision befor registering is the same opportunity I extend to my prospects. My prospects totally understand before registering that the Quixtar Business is an opportunity to generate income but hard work is required and it is not a "get rich quick" plan. My prospects typically spend about $200.00 to get registered and all of it is backed up by Quixtar's 100% money back guarantee. If my prospects have to wait seven days before registering, this will limit how many people can be added to my business in a given month an will difinitely slow down momentum and productivity of my business and therefore negatively affect my income. Prospects should be able to start whenever they are ready to spend their own money and not be limited by FTC's waiting period. It is almost impossible to ask a new IBO to provide 10 references since references are based on relationships which can take some time to develop. We also run a serious risk of violating people's privacy by giving out their personal information. Propects have the opportunity to meet other IBOs and learn from their experiences at events such as information seminars and team meetings. A person's income and finances is personal to them and will be an invasion of privacy and extremely inappropriate to be required by the FTC to offer prospects. And besides, Quixtar already provides approved income earnings disclosures such as the average monthly gross income of each IBO level which I discuss with my propects so they know exactly what kind of income they can potentially generate. Thanks for reading my concerns since your final decisions can affect my house hold....negatively or positively. I am hoping for the latter. Have a great day!
