Comments:My name is Joel Kozlowski and I have been an Independent Business Owner (IBO) for a little over three full months. So far with my business I have been able to help my family buy food and daily supplies and to save money. In my first month in business I was able to transfer what I have bought and received a check for about $230. I plan on moving on in the business, but it is not too easy to talk to people about the greatest business opportunity and for them to let me help them. Not only has the Quixtar opportunity helped my family and I in creating an added income, but as a person I feel and others have agreed with me that my outlook and attitude of life has greatly increased. Before this I got engaged to my girlfriend of almost three years. We got engaged New Years Eve but from there our relationship began to fade. When I joined I did not even include Diana with the business. After about two weeks of being around our business team I realized that I was being selfish and I was hurting my relationship with Diana by her not being there. Since then, I have introduced her to the team and our relationship could not be better. I do not think that we would even still be together if it was not for this team and just being around the great environment. We have now chosen a date to get married and we could not be happier. I am the type of guy that needed all the information about something before I would go to much into it. I was linked up to the website and I was able to look around and read all the information that I wanted to. I was really surprised when I was sponsored and join the business because I still had some questions. About a week later, I received a box with catalogs and information about this business. Let me tell you, I was in awe in the amount of information that this, what my friends called it. "get rich quick" scheme offered me. They laid out how you were to make money, all the companies that we work with, information about products, and pretty much it answered all the questions that I had. One of the things I like to do when I am sponsoring new prospects I always have with me my box of information just in case they are wanting more information right then. Most of the time I plan a seperate time and go over any questions they had and go over some of the things that I believe are important to cover before getting started. I also insure and show them how this business is not a "get rich quick" thing and I help ease them and I do not pressure them to join. I believe that if some new rules were to be put into effect the growth and expansion of my business will be greatly hurt. I think that if i had to wait for 7 days to start and get going that I would get frustrated and not want to continue with the business. Also, I am afraid that if I was to give a list of local IBO's that I would maybe lose the new prospect to an IBO that maybe that person already knew in the past but did not know was in the same business arena. I am not saying that nothing should ever change, but I do not think that this opportunity has been negetive for me in anyway. You can call Menards in Dolton and ask them about my work habit in the last three months. I am certain that they will say that I have a new hoop in my step and that my overall attitude and tolerance has changed for the better. I believe that if more rules and put into effect that it would make this great opportunity something that turned into more of a headache and not an opportunity. Thank you for your time and listening to the changes in my life because of this awesome business that this great country has allowed me to be a part of.
