Road Trip


I am going to be taking off here for a week or so. Urgent matters in another part of the country that I have to help deal with.

Unfortunately, I'll miss bringing in the new year with my family.

Fortunately, I'll be doing pretty well on the money end of things, and my wife and daughter are going to come up with a plan as to where we're going to go and what we're going to do with the windfall to make up for the missed New Year's.

I hope they come up with something good.

Anyways, Happy New Year, and be sure to bring in '07 safely.

Peace On Earth

Well, It's Christmas Eve. The Shopping's done, the family is all going to be together (my in-law family) and the kids are excited.

Speaking of excited, there's a new Chris/Tony type fella over at Quixtar Blog. Check out his latest feeble arguments that we've all heard before, just with the words in a different order.

It never fails to amaze me how people completely go over the dam with this "business" and the effort expended in defending it.

Enough of that for now. It won't do to fight on Christmas. Pet peeve. People who spell it XMas.

Don't be so damn lazy. Christ is what Christmas is about.

I want to wish all of you, critics, neutrals, and IBO's alike, a Merry Christmas.

I sincerely wish upon you prosperity and good times for all of you and your families in the coming year.

Merry Christmas to all.

I was on a "leader's" site today and there was a section about showing the plan. The "leader" is advising the IBO's to sort of gloss over the numbers, and to be moving quickly through the explanation of the business..

The "leader" rationalizes that the numbers are not important, its more about the concept in general.

I personally have a problem with that, simply because numbers are what make the world go 'round. I understand that and accept that, despite the fact that I'm not a numbers guy. Can you imagine a restauranteur looking over an eatery, and the actual numbers (ie. profits & losses) are just glossed over? Costs of raw matterials, labour, taxes, freight, final product, and employee benefits are not looked at critically or thouroughly? Do you think that the potential buyer would just accept that?

Can you imagine?

I have said before, half jokingly, that Quixtar is not a real business. I was half joking, obviously because it IS a business by definition.

This is the kind of thing that gets me to where I'm not's not a real business. Who the hell would not want the numbers before getting into something?

Even more importantly, what do the numbers reveal that compels you to feel that you need to gloss over the numbers? What are you hiding?

Obviously you are hiding something. You are being encouraged to hide something.

Nice ethical business you got going there.

Any IBO's (and I know you read this) that can explain this, please feel free, 'cause I don't get it.

Are you a disgruntled IBO? Do you feel that you were told things that were not true?


Are you a happy IBO? Do you feel that everything you have been told is true and accurate?

The reason I ask is because I was just on a "leader's" password protected sire, and I can see why someone would be pissed off after taking a step back and absorbing what your "leader" shared with you. I will not mention the "leadership" line so as not to cause problems for the person who gave it to me, but here's a few tidbits of wisdom when pre-defending people's research results on the net:

Sam Walton (Wal-Mart) was a success, but was considered the antichrist. So I did a google search with "Sam Walton" + "Antichrist" and got here.

Now, I got a good laugh out of that particular site, and you can take from it whatever you like. I just left it at getting in a good laugh.

My opinion is you're not very smart if you take that kind of website seriously. It's a parody, and it proves nothing.

Why a "leader" feels the need to pre-defend this fantastic opportunity is beyond me, so let's just call it what it is. Preemptive Spin Doctoring

I'll be back with more tidbits from these secret protected sites. If you are a former or current IBO who has a problem with the motivation deception, feel free to send me an email with your website and password.

I'll be back...

Back Into The Real World

And....we're back!

It has been a while since my last post, and I apologize for that, but not really.

Since my last post, the fam and I relocated to a different area, which is back in the part of the country where people actually live.

We had to negotiate a mortgage, and we found a great house with TONS of room, and a finished basement. The upstairs of the house is fairly dated so we are going to be re-doing the kitchen, bathroom, entryway and flooring throughout. Because we're doing all this, I had to get estimates from a contractor, plumber, electrician, flooring people, etc..

So it's been busy.....BUT I have high speed again.

I have, however, been keeiping an eye on Joecool's blog, which seems to be where most of the action is these days.

Insider/IBOfightback has not changed one iota. He still sounds like an idiot, and it's pretty obvious he would like more discussion on his blog than he gets. Community discussions usually involve more than 2 people there, chief. I don't think your site is what you hoped it would be, just like your "business"

In any event, I am still going to be getting back to the discussion on the useless Amway/Quixtar motivation debate.

I see that a lot of the other gung ho IBO bloggers have taken a back seat to their "I will succeed" in your face approach as of late.

I guess they're too busy succeeding.

Back soon, thanks for checking in, even if you are an IBO. (Except Dave- He be the man)
