Almost got drug into that once, about 15 years ago. I don't remember the Quixstar name being mentioned. Was invited to a "meeting" by the manager of the grocery store I worked at in high school. I go there, uninformed, warned by my father that "its probably Amway" with a knowing look in his eye.
I go there, intros were made, then the "leader" of the crew said,
Leader: Tonight, we are going to talk about making LOTS of money in network marketing"
****lotsa cheers and chatter****
Leader: how many of you would like to make 4 times what you earn now working just a few hours a week?
*******more cheers and chatter*****
Me: Is this just an Amway presentation?
Leader (blinking and shocked) : Well, what do you know about Amway?
Me: I know enough that its not for me
Leader: Well why would you want to bring negativity in here? Would you be willing to listen with a postive and open mind?
Me: Sure, rock and roll dude
Lasted about 2 hours, no hard sells, and no one ever called me. Most of them there were friends anyway, so it wasnt a totally lost evening
I just don't believe that there is an easy sure way to riches, its hard work, takes determination and doesnt (usually) happen overnight as the multilevels would have you believe.
