Comments:To Whom It May Concern: I've been an (IBO) Independent Business Owner with Quixtar since 2001 and I believe that all it's actions regarding prospecting and networking to be 100% truthful & responsible. I was given literature and other resources to look over and discuss with my husband prior to signing up. As a matter of fact I was given an informative CD/Tape to listen to prior to even setting an appointment for a one on one discussion Showing the Business Plan. Upon the one on one meeting and many questions being resolved there, my husband and I were invited to a team meeting. Here we met several people on the team and were able to ask questions, spoke to them individually on their success and length of ownership. I believe that a dishonest practicing person would find it very tough to survive in the honest, respected & forthcoming environment of our organization. Quixtar believes in building the family unit, by enabling families to come together in a uique business opportunity for success. I've been very blessed to be associated with some of the finest people I've ever met! I feel confident in myself due to the many life lessons and futhering education we have access to. I'm all for the regulation of those "schemes" and other "get rich quick" scams out there. Organizations like those make it hard for good people like us to be trusted. We are always up front about the work involved and that "this is NOT a get rich type of thing, it takes hard work.." We have a wonderful team of Leaders that have been successful to a qualifying position and can Show the Business Plan at a weekly Informational seminar. These meetings are open to the prospects to come and listen to proven track records and experiences from many many successful people, with many different backgrounds and areas of expertise. We as IBO's try to introduce our prospects to as many on the team as possible. This enables them to see that we are in deed, In Business For Ourselves and certainly NOT By Ourselves! As far as a grace period, I believe that people are excited about what can get them what they want and a 7 day waiting period would be unfair. We have a money back guarantee. If for any reason some one is unhappy with their decision they can get their money back. We have many different levels of registration. You can spend as little as about $40 to $300 depending on the amount of product bundle you want and if you want to subscribe to a monthly magazine and what training package you want to receive. It is all up to the independent person. They get what they want, there is no minimum or maximum. Unlike traditional jobs, there is no limit set by someone else on you. You determine what you want to do with your business and how fast or slow you will do so. Quixtar and our Britt World Wide training system helps people become responsible, noteworthy citizens. We are very much about helping others and giving back to our communities. Enriching lives with good spirited people that are honest, pay bills on time, positive role models, raising our families with up standing values and morals by getting a parent back in the home. This opportunity was so different than anything else I'd seen. That's what attracted my husband and I to the business. The most amazing group of people, friendly, warm, intelligent and willing to help you succeed. Everyone has a vested interest in the good of the TEAM as a whole. As far as divulging my financial statements for others information, I think that is rediculous. My success isn't based on what you do or have done. I determine what I can afford to do, pay and so on. I don't think that I want a prospect to have this information. I also disagree with the list of other IBO refrences. They have the opportunity to meet & speak with others at the informational weekly meetings. My personal info is private and unless I give it out, no one else should either. We go out of our way to provide our prospects with every piece of information available.
