Comments:I appreciate the fact that the FTC is trying to protect the public from "fly by night" or less than honest companies. However, I feel the proposed rulings would destroy my prospecting business. Much of my business building has occurred while I was "on a roll". The excitement and momentum are what make this business grow. People don't get in based on information, they get in based on the enthusiasm shown by those already in. A 7 day waiting period would not only slow my business to a halt, but prevent a lot of people from getting in. If I had 6 people from one meeting want to sign up, it sounds as though it would take me 6 weeks to do that. By then, their excitement is gone, and the chances of them doing anything with the business have lessened drastically. And the thought of making two trips, when some trips are a long distance?? Crippling. Why would I want to give my prospect a list of other ibo's and give those other ibo's a chance to connect with MY prospect. That isn't fair, to basically hand my prospect over to another person who is looking for prospects?? I always introduce my prospects to other ibo's who are ON MY TEAM. I want them to be able to ask questions from others. I don't feel I should have to tell anyone what my income is. That is private information. I understand some people may inflate the dollars, and flat out lie. But I don't intend to give out my personal information. I always tell my prospects it is NOT a get rich quick, overnight thing. Just like anything else in life, it will all depend on how hard they are willing to work. The money is there...but I never promise anything. I only tell them what is possible. If I have to tell every prospect about every legal action ever initiated, that is going to hurt my business just from the stand point of giving them negative information that may affect their decision just because of some disgruntled person who is lawsuit happy, and expected everything to be handed to them, instead of doing any work themselves. I am worried about the proposals, and if they come to pass, feel I may as well kiss my future in internet marketing goodbye. Because all of these rules would cripple me. I have been an ibo for over 2 years now, with 15 under me. Quixtar is a wonderful opportunity to not only make additonal income, and possibly enough to replace your current income, but also an opportunity to grow as a person, due to their educational program. It has changed my life, and I am trying to help other people see the possibilities, too. It is Quixtar policy to give the prospect sufficient information to make their own minds up. We don't mislead or promise anything. I was given plenty of information, and told where to go to get more, if I needed it. No one promised me anything. I don't know of any business that can offer so much for approximately $50. And that money can be returned if they aren't happy. Don't mess up a good thing! Please!
