Comments:I registered as an independent business owner with Quixtar in August 2005. Everything that was explained to me in my prospect stage has proven accurate with my experience with Quixtar. I have made money exactly in the exactly the way it was described to me - by directing buying power through my Quixtar web site. Quixtar has also disclosed any changes in procedures through letters mailed to my homes address. I think that it is excessive and unrealistic to require a prospective business owner to wait 7 days to begin a business opportunity. In our business, 7 days can make a big difference in a person's potential income. I believe that in our country, people should be able to begin a business at home whenever they choose without a limitation imposed by the government. I also think that as an independent business owner, it is not my responsibility to provide my prospects with a historical record of litigation. If an individual should require any legal advice on whether or not to begin a business venture, that indiviidual may seek the guidance of an attorney. The reason that our start-up costs are so low for our business owners is that Quixtar provides great services to the business owners at a price that most people can afford. If Quixtar incurs more costs to maintain adherence to government regulation, this opportunity for individuals and families would be greatly diminished. Costs would rise, and less people would take the chance on becoming financially independent from their 40-60 hour work weeks. This hindrance would be a disservice to our current business owners, as well as those whose lives would be enriched financially and otherwise by starting their own at-home business. The Internet is a wonderful tool for allowing families to earn income without spending as much time away from their families, and this effect is building our economy and our communities. To continue kindling this economic growth, the responsibility of information gathering and due diligence should lay primarily with the prospect who is considering beginning the new venture. Technology, information, accounting, and legal services are in great abundance in this country for anyone willing to spend the time or money to utilize them. I would like to see laws that empower the individual instead of laws that unfairly burden the businesses providing an alternative source of income.
