Comments:My wife and I have been affilliated with the Quixtar business team for a little over 4 years. We were introduced to the team by some college friends. We were extremely excited about the opportunity when it was introduced and we were provided with all the information we needed and asked for before we made any decision to start our own business. We are Platinum IBO's, and are very pleased with the direction our organization is headed. The mentorship both financially and in all other areas of life have been priceless. One of the things we were told from the very beginning is that this is a business. And as such, required work to be successful (just like any venture in life). They also told us that the income we made would be in direct proportion to the amount of consistent effort that we put forth over a period of time, not some sort of "get rich quick" scheme. I believe the need to put people in contact with others who have at some point been associated with Quixtar before they are able to register would be a disservice to the new potential business owners. Unfortunately there are people out there who believe this to be an quick easy way to make a buck and are therefore upset when, without putting forth any consistent effort, they do not make large amounts of money. These people then confuse their lack of effort with the business as a whole and are disillusioned. Putting people who understand that this business requires work to be successful in touch with people who were not as ambitious would poison their own ambition level and fool them into believing that the business model was flawed instead of that person's work ethic.
