Comments:My name is Nicolle and I have been an IBO working with Quixtar since October 2005. Since getting in, I have used their training process heavily, and have made several regular client and members. With a bit of hard work, and by following their training courses, I will be increasing my income annually. The training system that goes along with Quixtar has helped me in other areas of my life as well. I am more self-confident and secure in who I am and what I am doing. The feeling of being part of the team and feeling that I have multiple someones that I can come to if I have a problem is a great feeling. Being able to be around such positive thinking individuals has changed my outlook on life for the better. When I was registered, I received plenty of information and plenty of information was available to me to peruse through, both through Quixtar as well as thisbiznow.com and several pamplets given out by my sponsors. There was no question in my mind that I wanted to register. The weekly meetings our team holds covered more than enough to tell me all that I needed to know. When I sponsor others, I make sure that I show them the same sites that I was given. We also have several new outlets for people to get their questions answered, and I don’t hesitate to use them. I knew from the beginning that Quixtar would require hard work and that it is not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. It requires learning discipline and leadership and a lot of people skills. We tell our prospective team members at the first meeting we take them to, as well as several times before actually signing them up. Some people do have faster success than others and others take longer to acquire what they get in for. If they are not satisfied with the speed their growing and decide to leave, after six months they have an unconditional money back guarantee that Quixtar happily honors. The areas of the proposed changes will most negatively affect me and my team’s growth is the required seven-day waiting period People now adays have short memory and having to wait seven days before getting started, will allow individuals to lose interest or forget exactly what they saw. The excited ones will want to start right away, and will likely tell their friends and family, and in those cases, when a person is excited about a new venture, friends and family are not always as excited as the individual. Even something as mundane in this day and age as opening up a new coffee shop often gets the individual bombarded with comments like “That’ll never work. You can’t do that.” And other negative responses because they did not see what the potential teammate saw and are ‘looking out for the friend/family member’s best interest’ by keeping them from an awesome business opportunity. I think it would be an unnecessary hassle if we had to provide a list of local IBOs to our prospects. When they come to the second level meeting, they have more than a chance to ask any number of IBOs right there. They are invited back to as many of these sessions – for free- as they feel they need to before registering. During that time they have more than ample time to meet the team and other teams in the area. It would be unnecessary phone time if we had to give the thumbs up to ever half-interest prospect whom we invited to join the business. The most excited individuals probably wouldn’t use the list anyway. Having to give our name and phone number to prospects also violates my privacy. It’s an absurd form of reverse telemarketing, in my opinion.
