Comments:My wife and I have been IBOs(Independent Business Owners) in Quixtar for 6 yrs. We have found this to be a good thing for us. It is not a get rich quick scheme. We were told the first night,our level of success would depend on the level of effort we put into our business. We have goals to accomplish which we are striving to meet through this business. We would like to build a car museum, to be able to travel and tell others of the dangers of drinking and driving, and have money to give to ministries. We have the best character of people in our upline. They have given us the most helpful and honest information at all times in the past six years in the business. The business has also helped my wife and myself to become better, but we still have a long way to go. It has also helped me on my currrent occupation as well. Because of the system of learning, tapes, books, and seminars we have learned to become better people. We don't believe that there should be a seven day waiting period. That would discourage the new prospect on getting started. We assume that if a person wants to start their own business, they have given it much thought. We don't think we should provide them with a list of 10 additional IBOs in the area, as this would be an invasion of privacy,as well as well as losing a potential prospect for our business. We don't think it would be appropiate to bring or disclose our earnings to them as well. We are currently informing our prospects their earning potential according to current FTC rules and regulations.
