Comments:My husband Tom and I have been I.B.O.'s for 26 years. He is a practicing Dentist and our goal with the Quixtar business is to allow him to retire with dignity due to sufficient income from our Quixtar business The building of this second retirement business has had a wonderful unifying effect on our family (4 children and 6 grandchildren).When we registered in 1980 we were given all the information necessary to make a decision. We knew we could get our money back if we changed our minds. When we register others, they have the same clarity available to them. They also get to meet others that have had success with Quixtar who teach that it takes time, perserverance, and work, with no guarantees from their efforts. They can easily learn names, occupations and phone numbers of more than 10 people that they meet. To make this a requirement is childish and an invasion of personal privacy. The cost of getting started is minimal but if they are serious, we tell prospects to prepare to spend up to $300 to educate themselves adequately. Everything they purchase that is in a marketable condition is refundable within 30 days. An extra seven day waiting period is pointless. Litigation lists lend to confusion and doubt for anyone. Income potential is clear, individual effort is what is questionable. Financial substantiation is private but a good lifestyle and blessings are public enough. Requiring public records turns all prospects into IRS agents unnecessarily adding more confusion, doubt and suspicion thereby hurting our healthy business . This is only a simple, honest business opportunity, and a great one at that, not a CIA clearance check.
