Joecool Is On The Move...

For those of you not in the know, the old Quixtar The Dream or the Scheme blog has moved. I guess his old host packed it in and he was unable to start new posts.

You can find his new blog here:

Quixtar The Dream Or The Scheme

Welcome Back Joecool.

Quixtar Lost My Cents

A blog has come to my attention, and I have added a link to Quixtar lost my Cents.

I find this blog superb in that a single mother of four breaks down what Quixtar products cost in relation to what the rest of the consumer world pays for similar products.

She is honest, forthright, and pulls no punches. I like the cut of her jib, and appreciate that she has the patience to find out true comparisons for people to view.

Here's a great quote by the blogger:

It all comes down to this.....FAIR PRICING. A fair market price for every product. When the products are so overpriced it just takes away from any chance of marketing the products."

Amen. Other than the deceptive tools scam, that's been the main issue since the internet started exposing what Amway/Quixtar is, not just what they want you to think.

Even if the tools scam were to continue, if the products were priced so that they could actually be retailed, it wouldn't be as bad of a deal.

At least then, an IBO just starting out could make SOME money.

As opposed to what's going on now...

So visit Quixtar Lost My Cents, and see for yourself the value that Amway/Quixtar provides the IBO's and customers.

Bridgett's Challenge


This challenge is open to any IBO who wishes to prove to all the critics the retailability of the Amway/Quixtar products. If you are here, it's because you are either curious, or have been challenged. If you have been challenged, then I hope you take me up on it. If this business is all you and your upline say it is, then it shouldn't be too hard to alleviate the concerns raised by critics. If it doesn't seem that it will strengthen your argument, a wise person would address and correct why it won't put your business in a positive light.

If you can't correct it, then I know what a real business person would do.

I was over HERE at Jimmy Payne's Blog and issued another challenge to Bridgett the IBO (I guess).

It goes as follows:

I'll make a list of what I'm buying for the next month. You give me a quote, and include shipping. If you are even 5% OVER what I would spend anyways, then you got yourself a customer and PV.

Don't start on the convenience with the door to door delivery for two reasons:

1. I could pick up toilet paper when I'm picking up milk.

2. It's seldom to your door anyways, without a HUGE amount of money for delivery charges.

What do you say Bridgett?

Thought So.

That's why this business doesn't work.


This challenge is also open to any other IBO who wants to Shut me up. Or the original Rocket's Challenge is still open with no takers. Funnily enough, the one who was trying to be the biggest knob about the challenge has since quit and moved on to greener pastures.

Either would be nice, as I have never once gotten a taker.

Remembrance Day

Take a moment today to reflect and remember the people who have served in all the different conflicts.

Whether I like what you say or not, whether you like what I say or not, let's remember the big picture and be grateful that we can say what we think.

There is no greater freedom than that.

Thank you to those who made it possible.

Another One Bites The Dust...

Yet another Amway/Quixtar leader has resigned.

New article over at Scott Larsen's site which you can find here. According to Larsen's article, Jerry is a 30 year IBO at the diamond level.

Why would someone like Jerry Harteis resign? Is it not worth hanging on to to will to his children?

In the previous post, some person who goes by anonymous gets into a banter and into a hissy fit when I remark about how I think the training is a bunch of spin to justify the higher prices. My point is that a number of companies are able to train people on the value of a product, and don't even worry about justifying the price. If the market accepts it, it will sell.

What does Jerry Harteis think about the prices? Same as me, evidently.

"Additionally, the IBOAI board had been repeatedly asking for more price-competitive product lines since the internet had leveled the playing field with regard to product availability. Those requests have gone unheeded."

Don't get mad a what most people know, anonymous.
