Comments:To whom it may concern, My wife and I have been quixtar IBO's for quite some time now, when we registered we were given plenty of information to make an intelligent decision to become IBO's also they gave us a copy of the SA-4400 which states the profit of past IBO's, and which we give out to each person before they are sponsored, we also make it very clear that this is not a get rich quick scheme and that it will take some hard work and some time and their success is not guaranteed this is told to them right up front. If the prospect is required to wait seven days it will cause most prospects to say no, because what gets them interested is the excitement of the moment, so if everybody had to wait that long it would be a hardship to them as well. When a person registers they buy a kit which consists of some products, and some information CD's and literature and there is a money back guarantee if this is not for them.They are also invited to a seminar where they get to meet other IBO'sand are generally introduced to people with like backgrounds. As far as giving the prospect references of IBO's it would be unfair to have total strangers calling these people to get their opinion of the business, not to mention the possibility of them possibly stealing the prospect away because they like their personality better, and we wouldn't like total strangers calling us interupting our privacy. It would be very inapropiate to carry around and disclose to a prospect a document about how much we are making in the business, One of the questions we always get is how much do you make in this business, and what we have learned is no matter how you answer the question, it can be a negative because if you are just getting started you haven't made anything and if you have been in awhile and you are making money they would feel intimidated about them being able to make that much, So what we do is we refer them to the SA-4400 which we are told is approved by the FTC.
