What Is Up With That?

I have noticed a few things about Amway/Quixtar IBO's.

If they are interested in prospecting you, they will tell you all kinds of things and be completely fascinated by you. Once you indicate you are not at all interested in their pie in the sky rinky dink outfit, they change.

You never see them anymore, and when you do, they tell you how successful they are becoming, how the business is exploding, and how they are working their way to Platinum, which will happen any day now.

At seminars, the people that weren't interested in building a Quixtar business are spoken about like they are something somebody dug out of their ear. Terms like, "broke loser, He just doesn't get it" are thrown hither and yon in a contemptuous way.

I find that the Quixtar "leaders" and IBO's speak of non-Quixtar people in a disrespectful and demeaning way. In fact, they get upset when people make fun of them.

Non IBO's are referred to as dream stealers, losers, broke, closed minded, weak, non acvhievers, etc...etc...etc... Could that be considered disrespectful? Abso-posi-lutely.

IBO's are referred to as Bots (a df creation I believe), sheep, schleps, brainwashed, etc...etc...etc...

My opinion is at least the arguments vary from one non-IBO to another. The Quixtar folks seem to recite from material directly when defending their business.

Non IBO's seem to "win" their point based on facts. I haven't really seen an IBO win a decent argument yet.

Tony-Bot allegedly has produced some sort of check from his upline. Good for him. I have a couple thoughts on that, since it seems to be the best effort shown by an Ambot yet.

1. The check is not Tony's. So why is that important to Tony? Does a General's check matter to a Corporal?

2. The circumstances under which the check was paid are unknown. I'm sure they will never be known. How much did the upline actaully keep? For what? I won't be putting too much stock in that unless I got to see the books. It's not a true indicater of profit. If you make $125,000 for 6 months work, but spent $115,000 to get it, is that so good? Not to me it's not.

3. How many people actually get a significant payout by their Quixtar involvement?

So how does an IBO prove they are profitable?

Better question, should they have to?

Should an IBO prove they are profitable?

Absolutely. If you are telling someone they can make money by joining your "business" and you claim that you are making money, then the "prospect" has a right to know. All else is equivocation at best and downright deception at worst.

Yet IBOs are reoutinely taught to do just that - always give the impression they are making money, even if they are suffering losses of thousands of dollars a year.

Facts do count.

The non IBO's only ask for proof because the IBO's make such outrageous claims based on what their upline told them. Then when cornered with no proof, they resort to personal attacks or ask you to show them your paystubs fro your job. It's a pretty typical response from a lot of the "bots".
