Comments:I wanted to voice my opinion in regards to the proposal for stricter rules regarding business opportunities. My husband and I have been involved with Quixtar for 3 years and only have positives to express about it. Both my husband and I have masters degrees in sports medicine and came to the realization shortly after grad school that there was no chance that we would be able to live the type of lifestyle we wanted to live without an additional income source. We looked into traditional business, but found that we neither had the knowledge nor capital to get one started. When we were approached about this business we realized that it was a great opportunity for us, with little risk involved. The small amount of money required to get started and the full money back guarantee made us rest easy about venturing forward. We realize that this type of business is not for everyone, but that anyone who wants to can build a business such as this. The stipulations that are trying to be imposed would severly limit the success of gaining new business owners. People once exposed to this business idea have every opportunity to find out information about what people are really making, the cost and time involved, as well as any other piece of information that they have questions about. That is one of the differences between the way Quixtar is run compared to similar businesses, in that we want prospects to gain as much information as possible before making a decision. There are no high pressure sales tactics involved when becoming a business owner, which is why the waiting 7 days before registering is not neccassary in this business as a rule. Most business owners want to show prospects that the business works prior to them even getting registered with the site. Quixtar has always gone above and beyond to make sure that this business opportunity is the best it can be for those involved. I know that you will make the best decision in regards to the proposed rules, since you hold the dreams of those who own businesses and those who want to in your hands. Thank you for your time.
