Comments:To whom it may concern. The following is in response to the FTC proposed "Business Opportunity Rule." My wife and I have been involved in the Quixtar business for a little over a year and a half. To make our story brief, although skeptical of the type of income that could be acheived in this business, we were very excited at the time that the business was presented to us. Little did we know that the biggest value or benefits of this business were ones that were not in the presentation. (giving glory to God, bringing families together and love of our great country) The information that was given to us at the initial presentation was more than adequate to make a decision on moving forward. In fact, our sponsor would not even let us register as soon as we wanted to. We had to keep asking him what we needed to do to get started. He gave us the time to make sure that this was what we wanted and for us to review all the facts on the literature provided. In turn, we go through the same process when presenting the plan to other prospects. We typically will meet with prospects several times before even letting them get involved with this business, and leave them with different formats to review. (audios, books, web sites, printed literature, etc.) Although we talk about the income they can achieve through this plan, we do emphasize the fact that success will require time, hard work, and commitment. We tell them that this is not a "get rich quick" or a "pyramid".
