Why I write about Quixtar?

Well I have lost time and money in Quixtar, and I'm not excited about it. I was never told about BSMAA and learned a year after we quit that I can't even sue my upline for misrepresentation and loss of $10,000. And that's not it, list goes on and on.

But hey, there are many companies I'm not a big fan of. Halliburton, Petro Canada, Nortel, Wal-Mart, Enron, but I don't want to write about them. Yawn! Yet I could write books about Quixtar. Why?

Quixtar is funny! Other companies are so boring! Even WWE who looks hillarious but its successful because of same-ole boring professionalism.

And our lovely Quixtar: So funny! And cute little things like:
  • You are a broke loser if you are not building this business
  • You must love you employer more than your wife if you have a J.O.B
  • J.O.B = Jackass of Boss
  • You are not man enough if you are not diamond
  • We love you (Supposedly business gurus and adults saying this!)
  • Be in submission to your upline
  • Never question anything
  • People who don't build this business have HUB disease (Head up Butt)
  • Businesses work, people don't (?)
  • God will roast P & G in hell at the hands of IBOs (What will be IBOs doing there?)
  • We'll kick their teeth down their throat
  • Paddle the canoe
  • If you don't have $300 to signup, you need this business more than anybody.
  • Borrow shoes for your kids from your upline and pay for tools.
  • Flush the stinking JOB
  • Internet is a bathroom wall full of lies (where exactly is
  • Figures don't lie but liars can sure figure ('liars' who? 'figuring' what?)
  • Stay 'positive', never pass 'negative', never crossline
  • This business is not about money, money is just a bi product for doing God's work
As long as I get to hear funny things like these, I'll keep interested in Quixtar. Moment it become professional and boring like other corps, yawn, and implement 70% rule and get rid of toolscam, I'll loose interest.

I just wonder how so many adults (including me!) fell for this? How we so blindly followed and trusted complete strangers and kept spending money against common sense? Were we up against professional con-artists? Or Merchant of deceptions ;) Who is this 'Zack' by the way?

Didn't you say earlier that you knew your sponsor very well and respected him ? In case, I am mistaken; by now you must have analysed what exactly made you trust your sponsor and/or what exactly lured you in. Is the lure of money and lifestyle of diamonds portrayed so blindingly compelling as to entirely overlook feasibility of the whole thing ? Or Is the trust in your sponsor overriding your commonsense to check the numbers?

Since no one will admit to "blindly follow and trust complete stranger" while actually doing so, what exactly made you do it ?

There must be a mistake on my side. I never knew our sponsor before. First time we saw them they have invited us for plan. We ‘relate’ with them big time, they were / are just like us. So we trusted them (same background helped, both immigrants in Canada from Pakistan). We later became best friends and soon their family was the only family we associated with. We thought if they are doing good in Q, so can (will) we.

Before than that, lifestyle of some one else wasn't any attraction to me. But now associating with ppl like them and so many others all claiming and affirming to get that life style in few years made us believe it is just around the corner.

I think it was trust more than attractive and misrepresented lifestyle. Later we found we were the only leg of them while my upline was chanting he (my sponsor) is his widest leg, when pins were recognized. So he was in ‘red’ all the time wile claiming to be doing good.

Also, how one can check the number? Not the plan numbers. They are twisted. Internet, yes. Why didn't I do it? If my sponsor is saying it's good it must be good! I sponsored many people like that. No one checked the numbers. It’s all trust game.

Okay, I am considering Quixtar, so I decided to do some research on the internet. First I searched for articles in reputable periodicals, to no avail. Next I simply queried 'Quixtar info'. And came up with basically two categories: 1) Those connected with Quixtar and 2) Those either non-partial or against it.

I guess the reason I state this, is that I am trying to locate 'hard' facts about Quixtar. So my question is what are these 'numbers' you say to look into and where can I find them?

Good question.

Hard facts: Check out This site has been sued many times by Quixtar / "Systems" But they never challenged it's accuracy. So I'd assume data is correct here.

First, there are 3 parts of Q business.

Tapes : Seminars : Meetings. I'd venture to say this is not so legal and plain BS. You don't need that. When signing, ask lot and lots of questions about BSMAA, as in BSMAA, you are giving up your rights to legal appeal other than arbitration. It’s included when you signup for Quixtar. LOOK OUT

2nd part: Buy for yourself and teach other to do. By maths, this model is doomed to fail for majority. Products are expensive! you have to do 100 PV => 280 bucks!

3rd part: Retail. Yup, legal. If you are interested sales / retail, go for it. Stay away from the "system" like BWW and buy product at IBO price, sell them @ Retail Price. Don't bother with tapes and meetings.

Good luck.
