Comments:I am an Independent Business Owner with Quixtar for nearly a year and would like to comment and provide feedback regarding the Proposed. 7 Day Waiting Period: My personal experience was outstanding at the time the business plan was explained to me and throughout the registration process. Prospects like me are not allowed to sign up the day they see the plan but they do receive written material to take home to review including the Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, and thrid party web sites who review our industry and compare us to other business etc. Now i give the same material to prospects and want them to make an iformed decision. Attached please see the material new people receive before thet can register. Informed Decision: It was made clear to me that it is not beneficial to either party to try to "sell me" on the business. It is not for everyone and it is a waste of time for us to register a new person if they are not self motivated. New people should be already looking for an opportunity to be a business owner and we only want to present an opportunity for their consideration. Money Back Guarantee: In addition our business already offers a money back guarentee if we decide not to do the business. Everyone has a year to try the business and no questions are asked if they want a refund. In fact if they are not building the business i want them and will help them get a refund because I want them to remember us as people who do not want them to have a bad experience with our business. A bad expperience only creates a bad reputation for me and other Independent Business Owners. Several times I have recommended to people that they get there money back and I have helped them do so. There is no incentitive to just "sign Up " a new person. The cost is less than $175 and they are told up front what they receive and how much is optional and what is required and why. I have never heard any complaints abut the modest start up costs. Also we give them materials at no cost to start their business. I loan them CD's and written material and the same materials are given to others who they introduce to the business. In conclusion I have been the CEo of several 25 million-35 million healthcare companies. I have worked for public companies as well private for profit companies.I am a grauate of the US Naval Academy and served in teh US Marine Corps before returning to school to earn my MBA and a degree in hosital administration. I was an owner of a start up company and grew it from 0 revenue to over 100 million company. My point is that I have had a full career and was very successful and have more experience then most people who enter this business. My experience is that the people in this company are the best i have ever worked with. They have geat character and are of the highest integrity. It is not about the money but these leaders are investing their time and money in others to help them grow and succeed in life and do it in a manner of werving others and giving back to our country and our communities. It is a honor to work and werve with these wonderful people. Attached is material given to new people. Paul and Rhonda Davis Members of Quixtar, INC References: As part of the process new prospects are introduced to others who are already in the business. Often they exchange business cards and are told to call if they have any questions. They meet the "business team" and we explain to them how others are there to assist thema nd teach them the concepts of the business. They are not allone. They learn that first noght who the leaders are and what they do outside the business such as school teacher, nurse, home maker, etc.
