Blog Dabbler

I just started this blog so that I could comment on other blog sites, whether pro IBO or not. But upon further thought and because of a comment made by a blogger known as OneIBO(, I have decided to dabble in blogging (meaning I'm not just dabbling in my biz). His comment that really grabbed me was that he was glad that he never promised to post daily.

I read blogs both before and after my [now] wife and I started our business powered by Quixtar. I understand that both sides firmly believe in what they are saying. Thats the beauty of opinions. My wife made a comment one night when she discovered that I had spent the majority of the night reading blog sites on this opportunity instead of going out and building our future. I agree fully, and sometimes it takes that to get a man going. So, I will never blog my way into the "failure" that fuels anti-opportunity blog sites.

That being said, I am not anti-blog either. I know that people will investigate this opportunity whether we like it or not. I feel that everyone is entitled to their opinion and 1st ammendment rights to free speech. I also feel that those investigating should be able to be well informed. So be informed, PEOPLE FAIL IN THIS BUSINESS!!! SOME people fail. So if you are investigating this or OneIBO's blog site to see if this is a legitimate business, the answer is this: YES!!! But it may not be for you. But it may be. And this is my opinion, but it is my experience that the people that listen to their growing upline and plug into the "system", will find success. Because they will become the person/leader they need to be to succeed.

SOME people fail. And SOME of those people will not take responsibility for their part in the lack of success. And SOME of those people will choose to voice their opinion of this opportunity while putting the blame/responsibilty onto the biz.

I will try and share some things on my Quixtar experiences past present and future. Thanks to the great example of OneIBO. Thank you.

Actually, most people in this business fail.

Just so you know, there is less than 1% of people who sign up that go diamond.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll be sure to link you.

What's the percentage of people that of people that start in any field that make it to the diamond lifestyle. Lets really think about this one.

Teachers: 0% (I know cuz I are one)*i did that on purpose*

Doctors/Lawyers: 0% because they have to be involved in their practice 60-100 hours a week to make that kind of money

Real Estate: this one could be interesting, if anyone finds it let me know

Inventors: < 1%

So I guess I'm still confused why its bad to take a low to no risk business system and work it in your spare time (not quitting your instant income) for any kind of chance though I feel that the 1% is skewed because of those that get in and do NOTHING, EVER. Or those that quit at the first obstacle. If we did this in our jobs we would have a new job every week. Every job has things we don't like doing, and jobs incomes don't always pay all the bills. But most all people put their faith in the idea that their job will take care of them, they will get a raise or promotion. I'm just not seeing that much these days.

I wonder what the "committed" IBO to diamond percentage is. Who needs diamond income to better their lives, even Ruby or Emerald would be fantasic enough for me. Better than any 40 hr./40 yr. deal. Especially since its still just as big or bigger at retirement. $32,000/yr after busting my butt, no thanks.

So whats the IBO to Changed Life ratio?

Teachers, Doctors, and Lawyers are at least making money while they do their chosen career. Not so with most IBO's.

Natch for the real estate folks as well.

If you feel there's no risk, then great! Just make sure you aren't plopping piles of money down on motivation, resulting in a net loss every month like the majority of plugged in IBO's do.

I feel bad for you if you get no fulfillment out of your present job. Maybe you should focus a little more on the good you accomplish with your job that you chose, and then you wouldn't have such a negative attitude about it. Or else find another job where you can actually be happy with your function in society.

If you loved your job then it wouldn't seem like such a heavy cross to bear.

In any event, you have a better chance of getting a job you enjoy than succeeding in Quixtar. And I don't even make a profit by telling you not to do Quixtar.

But I may save you a few bucks.

Its not whether or not I find value in my current job, I do feel a purpose and find fulfillment in doing well at it. As a matter of fact, I do plan on doing the portions of my industry that I find have the greatest impact on society, i.e. coaching with character & values.

Here's what I've found though, and I'm not saying that all places are like this so you don't have to take my statements and globalize them again: as much value, "good you accomplish with your job", and "happy with your function in society" many people put into their jobs, working for someone else, they don't get that same kind of appreciation back from their employers.

Not everyone has been "down-sized" because the company doesn't want to take care of them the way they deserve, but I'd like to read an exchange between you and someone that has put in their time and effort and committment and then been dropped. I think jobs are fine, and guess what... I still have one. I just can't count on mine taking care of me and my family in the long run.

One final note: in case you are worrying that I'm the kind of person that is looking to "get rich" just to sit on it and buy expensive and useless things, rest assured, I'm not. What the financial benefits this business system offer do for me is help so money stress is not a factor on my marriage. So that I can have time to invest in the lives of teens with a ministry I believe strongly in. So that I can support those that have been called to full time ministry. And so that I can have the platform to influence society for the better.

Well, to be honest, I do understand what you are saying. I would be concerned about being downsized as well, but I am in essential services, so it really is a non-issue for me. Trust me when I simply say it won't happen for me, and that was one of the reasons I got into essential services. Security. Money. Opportunity. I made those choices when I was 22 years old and I'm glad I did.

As far as being appreciated, I'll tell you what my outlook on appreciation is. If you get paid every 2 weeks, you are appreciated. I do feel that sometimes my work isn't appreciated, so I can relate. But, I still get paid.

As far as money not being a stress in marriage, you'd be surprised at how many jobs can offer that if you are intelligent about your finances. I don't have real money stress in my life, I'm 31, and have the dreaded J ay oh Be.

I do hope you succeed in whatever you decide. But I will say, if money is a major stressor with you at this point, trust me, I've been there. Don't blow money on Quixtar motivation, hoping it will turn the tide.

YOU will turn the tide. Pave your own way. The "system" doesn't work for over 99% of people.

I'd hate to see you be one of them.

Joe says: Simple answer. Committed IBOs attend major functions. At major functions, there are probably 25,000 IBOs and about 5-10 diamonds. That should give you an idea.
