Comments:I've been a Quixtar IBO for 7 years. My largest single month's income over that time period was $6,000.00. We also won a trip. It has definitely provided additional income for my husband and myself. The business plan allows me to have income that is deposited directly into our account every month. I don't mind sharing (I have shown copies of my checks in the past) that information with prospective IBO's, but being forced to show documents is an invasion of my privacy. Another invasion would be letting prospects call other IBO's in my area. They may or may not be a part of my group and could steal my prospect, therefore hurting my business. I had sufficient infomation when I joined and was invited to my upline's meetings to meet others in that same organization to have any questions answered. It was never presented as a "get rich quick" business and I never explain it to someone else in those terms. We are all well trained in the opportunity presentation which is truthful and accurate. The cost of getting registered, including publications & a product pack is under $200.00. If they change their minds, they are quareenteed their money back. There is no risk and unlimited opportunity to gain. I don't want my phone number given out to IBO's not in my organization. Companies with fraudulent practices make us good ones look bad. I just don't want to see our ethical businesses hurt because of bad ones that want to take advantage instead of helping people.
