Comments:Thank you for taking the time to read my comment. My wife and I have been IBO through the Quixtar business opportunity for about four years and we have enjoyed our experience. The way I was approached with the business was as follows: Bob Barto met Amy and I in an airport and proceeded to contact us after nine months from the time we met. We scheduled an appointment. He and his wife (Stacey) sat down with us and showed the IBO business plan to us. It took about an hour. He left us with a packet of information and inside that info was a FTC doc disclosing all the numbers of the business opportunity. He called us back three days later to answer questions and he answered them. Then we wanted to think about it some more. So he called back two days later; Amy and I had determined that we had enough info to make a decision. Amy felt really comfortable because there was 100% money back guarantee. So we got sponsored that night and set up a game plan with our upline to make our business work. Currently, we have matched my wife's income and our current goal with our business is to exceed her income. The current process is a three-step process before someone can start his or her IBO business. 1st-Sit down for 15-20 min. interview (to find common ground and see if we might be able to work together.) 2nd-Attend an IBO class to view the Marketing Plan (at this point, they meet several other IBOs and see and gain information from them about the Business (ie. references) and they are given a packet of information with all the disclosures at the end of the class.) 3rd-Exit interview- answer questions and give additional information about how the Business works and then if they are ready to start their business, we get them started.) This is the process that I have used and what my teams of other IBOs use as well. As you can see, we give people a three-step process to make a decision if they want to pursue their own IBO business using Quixtar as the supply company. Over all, my wife and I have had an incredible experience that will positively affect my family for generations to come. Thanks!
