Comments:I have been an IBO since the beginning of Quixtar.com in September, 1999. Prior to that time, I was an Amway Distributor since 1964. I have been very successful with building a strong independent business and love every aspect of the business that I have seen down through the years. I have never been pressured to do anything I did not want to do, but have always been encouraged to set goals and strive to reach them in my own time frame that fit for me. The positive support I have received has helped me in every area of my life to be a better well-rounded person. The benefits have been much more than making an income. I have been provided with excellent materials to help me make an informed decision at each level of the business. There have been times when I was not actively involved in building the business, because of other commitments in my life, but it was always there for me to work at my own pace. The business tools are excellent, and when we sponsor others in the business, they are given the same opportunity that we were, and are offered the materials needed to fit their needs and desires. It is a wonderful business opportunity that allows each of us to grow at our own pace, even if that involvement is very minimal or very involved. In order to grow, it is up to us to work hard and smart consistently, and is definitely a business that allows us to grow at our own pace. Much different than in my fulltime regular job, where there is so much negativity and complaining, I feel that through this business I have learned to be a positive influence at my job to encourage others to be the best they can be, and to strive for excellence at all times. I would not want to see our business changed in any way, to make it more difficult for new people to get started, and I feel it would put prospects at a real disadvantage to have to wait seven days before registering. I feel that the Quixtar business is a very legitimate business and is run with the highest standards of any business I know of. I am very proud to be and Independent Business Owner and be part of the INA/Quixtar team.
