My post about Quixtar has been linked from this blog. And no, this is not my way of basking in the light of my newfound Internet fame :) I'll start basking only when people call me the Anti-Quixtar messiah :P
Actually, this person's blog attempts to be a neutral party in providing information about Quixtar and joining. I haven't read enough of the blog to say whether he's truly neutral or not. The few posts I've read seem to put him in the neutral camp. That would be the first person I've met who's neutral on the company.
Anyways, I mentioned in a comment to him that I probably come off as a Quixtar hater. I actually don't know enough about the company to care too much either way. Obviously though, I wouldn't recommend anyone to join up with Quixtar. What I am a hater of is the damned IBOs (Individual Business Owners) who keep coming up to me or who think about coming up to me in stores and see if I'm interested in a personal business.
Come to think of it, I was in Great Mall over the weekend taking a break on a bench. Behind me were 3 desi's sitting down on the adjacent bench. Two of them were talking to the third starting off with small talk. It quickly led to the personal business thing. My wife and I looked at each other, joked in Gujarati about warning the 3rd guy about what he's being pulled into. Actually, I wouldn't stop someone from joining; they can figure it out on their own. If they want to join, that's their business.
So there it is. The solictors need to be smoother with this thing because it's way too easy to predict who they are and why they're talking to you in the first place. And from what I've read today about Quixtar, you can buy a lot of training/personal improvement materials to help your business. Either those materials suck, or Quixtar's gotta hire Tony Robbins to put together a 12-step improvement process.
Ok, that's seriously enough. The company doesn't need any more of my comments. Thanks Eric Janssen for the link, you've sent a lot of hits my way and now I'm seriously on my way to internet fame :) Now I just need to make a billion dollars off this thing.
