Comments:We have been IBOs for 20years and are proud of this opportunity. We provide prospects with info to help them make informed decisions, helping them to understand this is an opportunity requiring hard work and not a get rich quick scheme and there is no guarantee of income. We use printed literature (SA4400) FTC approved to explain this opportunity(average monthly gross income etc). We introduce prospects to other IBOs affiliated with our business and encourage them to talk with these people to find out about their personal experiences with the business. We encourage prospects to read and study the business opportunity before making a decision, never letting them be sponsored immediately. Personally we feel it would be inappropriate to give out personal information of other IBOs and a violation of our privacy for our information to be given to prospects that we do not know. We feel it would be inappropriate to give prospects financial records (again a violation of our privacy) to substantiate income. Income is directly related to work ethic and would vary for each prospect. This is explained in detail as we work with each prospect. IBO income and the impact of the business on our lifestyle are talked about with each prospect as we are giving them information to help them make an informed decision. Please reconsider rules that violate privacy and create hardships in sponsoring others into a proven business opportunity that we are proud to be affiliated with.
