Comments:I have been an IBO with the Quixtar Corporation for 1.5 years now. During this time I have learned so much about myself, my family and friends, and business in general. This has been a great outlet to help me to break out of my shell so to speak. I have always been quite and with this group I have learned what I need to do as a person to succed in life to become successful. This group fits into my life as a part time opportunity at the current moment. But, I can not wait to make this a full time venture. This group has provided so much education in regards to this business and how to work the business. They have not lead me a stray. If I have a question they answer to the best of their ability. When this opportunity was first introduced to me it was explained to me that this is not a get rich quick schem nor was it get paid for every person you sign on like other groups have been known to do. I don't have to buy products to sell them, which is a plus. They guarantee their products for 6 months where you can only return your products in the stores for at most 30 days most times so long as you have a receipt. I personally have not yet signed anyone one, but when new people show an interest I will give them all the information I have and if I don't have enough for them I will seek the help of my upline sponsors. When asked I will always tell new people that this business only works if you do, which is the truth because you only get back what you put into it. Do nothing get nothing. I regards to the proposed rule I think making someone wait seven days to sign on is a bit much. I can understand maybe a day or two but seven seems to long. When someone is introduced to this group they typically will always ask for more information before saying yes. So usually 2 days on average before hearing yes or no is to be expected. I honestly am not sure what the seven day waiting period would do for any business let alone mine but I do think that once someone has made the descion to sign on that they should be able to right away.At most I think a 2/3 day waiting period from the time the plan is shown to them would be fair. This would provide enough time to get everything they need. In regards to the showing your earnings, especially if your new, is not something I would feel comfortable with. Why in this business would you want us to have to show what we earn when you are at work the company doesn't want you to even speak about your current salary. I think it would put a negative spin on all kinds of business's. If I had to provide a list of local IBO's I am only going to provide the IBO's from my group not from someone ele's group. That is something that is simple to do because we currently are required to introduce ourselves to the newest member when we are their sponsor anyway. Plus, it is only going to inforce what our team does to help each other out. But what if your in a location that does not have any local IBO's? What then you can't sign them on? That is in turn rediculous. The litigation list is ok but what if the litigations we provide have no acutal merit to them? What if the person whom filed suite lost because they were wrong or could not produce the proper evidence? I think you also need to give greater definition into what seller means who are they? Are they the IBO or are the corporation the group is affiliated with? I think the call to come down on groups that are fake and do not have any merit is good but to wedd those out you are also hurting those whom you know are not illegal or are following the rules. I think it is great to do this but to follow a few better guidelines would be the easiest thing to do.
