Comments:My wife and I have been an Independent business owner with Quixtar for over two years now. We have been able to generate an ongoing income that excceds any tradtional businesses. The Quixtar oppertuity has provided a source of mentorship for the both of us. If it was not for this opportunity my wife will not be able to retire in a few short months when our child will be due. When we got started the person that show the business to us provided everything to make a well educated decision to whether to get started or not. Everytime my wife and I show this opportunity to anybody we make sure to provide enough infomation to make the same decsion. All of our prospects understand that the business requies hard work and this is no get rich quick deal. At the time of initial registration the prospect usally spends about $150, which includes registration fees and $ 80 of products. If they decide to no to do the business they get 100% of their money back no questions ask. Requirement to provide references would not only hurt business owners like my wife and I, but also violate their privacy. The prospect does have a chance to meet other business owners if they choose to and we give them many opportunity to do that. I ask that the FTC to reconsider the proposed rules which are in questioned. Thankyou for opportunity to respond.
