|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 437|
Comments:. Explain how the proposal would affect your independent Quixtar business. This proposal will put unnecessary regulations on my great business. (1) Begin With Your Personal Experience Start your comment with a short description of your Quixtar experience: How long have you been an IBO? Nine years. What goals have you been able to meet so far? I am able to spend more quality time with my family and be mentored by a world class leader and be trained by a world class team. What is your next goal as an IBO? To become a Britt Eagle and a 4000 pin. How does the Quixtar business fit into your overall lifestyle? I work a day job 8-4 with a fortune 50 company, my Quixtar business hours are around 20 hours a week where I share the opportunity and get around the training team. I am a better person via this association. Are there benefits other than income? World class mentor and team to provide training. If so, what are they? When you were registered, did you receive enough information to make an informed decision about whether to register? Yes, an SA 4400 form was provided. When you sponsor others, do you provide them with the same kind of information? Yes it is the teams legal responsability, I also provide cd's and sample products. Do your prospects understand that the Quixtar business opportunity is not a "get rich quick" plan, that hard work is required, and that there are no guarantees of success? Yes, we are looking for a successful team member, those looking for get rich quick, don't usually have what it takes to stick with it and accomplish the rewards. If so, how do they learn this information? It is on the end of every CD we provide them, plus it is covered in the Business presentation. How much money do your prospects typically spend to register (initial registration fee plus optional product pack)? $155 How much of that money can they get back if they decide to leave the business? $45 for processing and paperwork, the rest is products which can also be returned for 100% money back. The requirement of a 7-day waiting period: How would your independent business be affected if prospects had to wait seven days before registering? When you buy a car, you have 3 days to change your mind, If Car dealers had to have customers wait a week, they would loose a lot of sales. What benefits (if any) would a seven-day wait provide for prospects? None, it would just delay them getting started and allow them to be overcome by distractions or negative people. What costs or burdens would a seven-day waiting period impose on you as an IBO? I would not be able to get someone started within 24-48 hours when they remember alot of what I told them, later they would start forgetting what we prvided them for information. How would it affect the profitability of your business? I would have to wait on them to get signed up and getting started. This could mean they do not get in at all, due to forgetting what they were exposed to a week earlier. How would it affect the value of the Quixtar opportunity to your prospects if, after registering, they in turn had to wait seven days or more before they could register their friends and family? This would delay the growth of the team, and also result in less people getting started due to reasons already stated. Would this affect their ability to earn income with their Quixtar businesses? Yes, it would delay things and they would make less money, slower than is available now. Please listen to the Quixtar leaders, they are very wise people in the Private Franchising arena, I support them 100%. I have never met a more honest team who helps those who want to succeed to be sucessful, Our country needs more people like the Devos, VanAndel, and the Britt teams. Thank you for considering their alternatives.
