Comments:My name is Mike Robinson. I have been a Quixtar IBO since the summer of 2003 when I was 21 years old. I applaud the motive behind the FTC's proposal for providing information to prospective business owners there should be rules out there that eliminate the operation of illegitamate at-home-businesses. Quixtar has had a profound impact on my life since the day I started. When I joined I was shy and did not have much direction as to where I wanted my life to go. After meeting the people on my team and working with them I began to grow in a different direction. My personality changed to a much more confident and outgoing individual. Now my direction has become more clear to me and I am excited about where my life is headed. To be honest I have not fully devoted the amount of time to my business it deserves. It has not turned a profit yet, but the interpersonal skills I have gained from the business are priceless. If I had to do it all over again I would join sooner. While building the business people have always been honest about the facts and giving me the information I need. The people have become great friends that I know I can count on for anything. (rare these days) The principles that build this business will always remain the same, if you want to be successful you have to do things the average person will not. I guess the point is if the FTC feels they need to place rules and restrictions on how I conduct my business so be it. I don't really understand the 7-day waiting period but it will slow the progress of things down quite a bit. I will always be involved in this business even if I have to jump through hoops to do it. It will all be worth it. Best of luck with your decision.
