Comments:I am an active Independent Business Owner and part of the Britt World Wide system that is affiliated with Quixtar. I have been an IBO for the past few years and I am pleased to say that I was fully informed before making the decision to become a business owner. I also received very insightful information regarding the corporation and the opportunity itself. By no means and at no point was I lead to believe that this was a "get rich quick scheme" or a "pyramid scheme." I was told up front that this opportunity was for long term/future success and it made perfectly good sense. The proposed changes that the FTC has put in place are egregious and would hinder the success of all current IBO’s. I am not focusing on any one ruling, but the whole document. Quixtar is a reputable institution and you are only as successful as you work to become. There is no success in cheating, misleading, or stealing from people. You must first serve and ensure the success of others before you can ever hope to become successful. If the rest of the world worked this way, we wouldn't be involved in so many scandals or financial misrepresentations. I urge you to rethink these regulations and allow this business to continue to function as it had before. Thank you.
