Comments:To Whom it may concern My wife and I have been an Independent Business Owner (IBO) with Quixtar for more than 6 years now and I would like to express how much the opportunity to be an IBO has impacted my life and the lives of many people all over the country. We started out as Ibo’s not having any business background or knowledge in business and the last 6 years has just been the best years of our lives. We had the opportunity to associate with some of the most positive, successful, caring and loving people. People that would love, encourage, uplift and help other regardless of color, creed, age, sex or any other situation and because of our association with these people we have been able to reach many goals in our lives. America has always been know as the land of opportunity for anyone that is willing to work hard consistently for a period of time to succeed. And after serving in the US military and attending college, I work for many years as an Engineer trying to succeed in life. I worked very hard for many different fortune 100 companies only to be laid off on many occasion for different reasons from company re-structuring; consolidation; re-organizing; company re-location; job’s moving overseas; etc. After having so many broken promises from these companies, I finally decided to exercise my right as an American citizen to explore Free Enterprise and to go into business for myself. As a result of my family and their lives has been greatly enhanced. My wife I have been able to build a successful IBO business powered by Quixtar in which we have now become a contributor to our society, rather than be a taker we have been able to be a giver. I am now a full time IBO than have been able to more than replace my job income at the same time being able to improve my marriage in many ways. Before this business my wife and I was at the verge of separation, but thanks to this business and the wonderful people and the positive environment my wife and I have been blessed with two wonderful children and will celebrate our 16 wedding anniversary this year. In the process I have learn how to become a better husband and father and my spouse a better wife and mother. When we saw this business opportunity, we had enough information to make a quality decision. Had anything been different, I would not have been in the position I am in today and the many people whom I was able to impact some ways would still be alcoholics; divorced; some not living and innocent children that have a better life they have today and the statistics of children not living with their parents would have definitely increased. Because of the impact this business opportunity and the fact that I have never been shown this opportunity since I got started, I am very careful to make sure that I present the business exactly the way it was presented to me for the fear that this may be the only opportunity the individuals many get to see the information that was shared to me. I always make sure that the folks that I shared this business opportunity to understand that this is not a “get rich quick’ plan and that it will require hard work and effort. The fact that I will have to invest my precious time and lot’s effort and resources (monetary and others), I stress this fact that this business will take hard work and there is not guarantee for success. If they are willing to learn and apply the business principles that have been shared with my wife and I and the other folks that are successful have learn and apply they have the same chance for success as I had. The prospects that gets registered in the business typically spends about $150.00 which includes the initial registration fee plus optional product pack, all of which are fully refundable for at least 90 days should they change their mind.
