    Wow again. I went to that website you recommended and look what I found regarding Bo Short and Passport.

    Quixtar Qrush Provides the Bo Short Timeline
    Qrush has put together various comments from Eric Janssen, Scott Larsen and many emails from Bo Short's former associates (In the end they all are former with Bo :) to compile this timeline:

    1995 - Bo Short buys the majority share of his PV for three legs to fake a diamond pin. Bo has his mom and dad both buy PV as accomplices of this travesty of justice. This cost Bo and Sandy Short in excess of $100,000. Since Qrush broke this story recently, which you can read more about here and here, Bo has admitted to faking one entire leg and spending $60,000 to do so.

    1996 - Bo Short neglects his group and it falls back to sapphire level. Bo and Sandy spend all their time speaking to make up for the huge debt load they accumulated by their lack of integrity when purchasing their fake diamondship.

    1997 - Bo Short refuses to accept responsibility for his pathetic business and life and looks for someone or something to blame. He sees that other diamonds associated with his organizational system are not growing either and smugly concludes that he is not the problem. Bo continues to speak and writes a book to help alleviate his debt load.

    February, 1998 – A group called ProNet is formed by Bo’s upline and crossline. Bo Short has nothing to do with the planning of this since his group is so small that he is the laughingstock of the other diamonds. Bo pretends to be a big shot and convinces the leaders that Dexter Yager is to blame for the lack of results in their organization. Bo continues to speak and celebrates his first of profits after his ridiculous debt load is finally paid off. Dexter Yager wishes them all well as they leave.

    September, 1999 – Quixtar.com launched and Bo’s business is down to platinum level. Bo continues to misrepresent himself as a diamond and feels no remorse at charging outrageous speaking fees even though he has no group. Bo decides to build a house that he cannot afford and dreams that he will be able to speak forever to pay for it.

    July, 2000 – Bo Short realizes that ProNet is not falling for his tricks, deceit and outright lies anymore, which you can read more about here, and Bo’s speaking engagement are reduced. Bo’s ego cannot handle the truth about his embarrassing business and looks for someone to blame for his reduced income due to his reduced speaking income. Bo decides to blame the ProNet upline and proceeds to attack the leaders of ProNet and convinces other disgruntled diamonds to leave ProNet. Bo Short even has the audacity to discuss business with crossline diamonds at Larry Sweat’s grandmother’s funeral.

    Bo Short and a handful of other diamonds from various organizations decide to meet and discuss the problems and search for a way to make more money off the system without actually leading the various teams. Bo Short spell bounds the other diamonds with his smooth talk (the only thing Bo is good at is worthless talk) and convinces the group that the problem is they are not making enough money on books, tapes and functions. They decide to rebel against their uplines and prove what great leaders they are with Bo leading the charge.

    Shortly after July, 2000 – Team in Focus was formed. Bo Short, with his smooth talking, gets elected TIF representative to Quixtar for tools. Bo works with Quixtar, but doesn’t like the answers he receives and begins to blame Quixtar for his lack of results (losers have to blame someone because it could never be their fault). Bo pushes the TIF team to create a tools bonus structure without customers. Lacking customers puts the whole Quixtar business at risk since everyone would receive a discount, which would violate FTC rules. Quixtar repeatedly offers to work with TIF, but will not risk the whole business for an obstinate Bo Short. TIF diamonds realize what everyone eventually realizes about Bo Short, that he is all talk, no action and cannot get the job done. Bo Short is now not even a qualifying platinum and the rest of the diamonds realize that they have been listening to a fake that is jeopardizing their businesses. Bo is now going further and further into debt with his housing project because he cannot delay his gratification because his parents have always given him everything he wanted. Bo begins work on his own MLM and sells out his TIF partners without saying anything about it.

    September, 2001 – Bo Short realizes that the gig is up and no one in TIF is listening to him. Bo also realizes after reviewing the situation with his lawyer that Quixtar was right and TIF will be shut down if they have no customers (customers are anyone who pays retail for the tapes and books). In a typical system the platinums and above qualify for discounts and everyone else is a customer until they hit certain volume requirements. TIF, by allowing everyone to qualify for a discount was running the risk of being declared an illegal pyramid. Bo determined the best thing to do is what he always does when things get tough and that is to run. Bo sent his lawyer in to do his dirty work and left TIF partners without even a handshake. Bo Short is very duplicitous.

    October, 2001 – Bo leaves his under 4,000 PV business and resigns all $400 a month of income. (wow, what a sacrifice :) Bo sends in his resignation letter to Quixtar and TIF. Passport is officially formed although Bo had been working on it for over a year. The fact that Bo was receiving income from Quixtar while building a business to compete against Quixtar is highly unethical behavior on Bo’s part.

    December, 2001 – Passport ships it first product, just two months after Bo’s resignation from Quixtar. More about Passport's hidden costs here, about Passport possibly being for sale here, and about Bo's possible battle plan here.

    April, 2002 – Team in Focus leaders are suspended by Quixtar for running a very risky tool business with no customers (the very model that Bo Short pushed TIF into when he was TIF representative to Quixtar and the real reason why Bo Short left TIF). Bo Short cost many diamonds their entire net worth and many of his former TIF partners feel nothing but scorn when the name Bo Short is mentioned. Bo helped develop the very tool system that was TIF’s downfall, but Bo double crossed his own partners to take care of himself. Bo does not release sales data for Passport because of the embarrassing numbers.

    November 2002 – The “Unholy Trinity” is formed to attack and steal Quixtar IBO’s because of sagging sales of Bo Short’s Passport business. And yet again, Bo needed to find someone to blame for his lack of success and decided it must be any diamond that remained in Quixtar and followed their rules, and an example of one of these attacks can be seen here. Bo Short teaches Scott Larsen how to look presentable and provides many half truths for Scott Larsen to write about. Bo Short also teaches Eric Janssen how to position himself as neutral while asking leading question to bait new Quixtar IBO’s, persuading them to call Bo Short.

    2003 – Bo Short announces he is doing a Dateline segment and states the reason is to get the truth out. The real reason was to help with the sinking Passport ship.

    May 2004 – Dateline runs the Quixtar piece and it is embarrassingly weak, greatly disappointing the cons. Dateline took over a year to create a show that featured three bozo’s who could not even qualify for jury duty. The big story is that some organizations don’t tell their groups that money is made on tools. Interestingly enough, Dateline did not say that the products were overpriced or that the tools business was illegal or that the Quixtar business was an illegal pyramid. Dateline must have lawyers that can determine the facts, unlike our “Unholy Trinity.”

    August 2004 – Qrush enters the scene and it is the beginning of the end of the Passport Smoke and Mirrors business. Any business that cannot be held up to the light and asked basic questions about their sales revenues will not make it in the internet age. Stay tuned as we watch Bo blame someone else and run yet again, leaving a wake of victims behind, as is his usual mode of operation.

    This is the sad timeline of a sad individual that goes by the name of Bo Short. If you are in Passport or have been prospected in Passport then please get these questions answered here before proceeding. Qrush believes in the integrity of most of the Passport Gang of 10 and believes Bo has smooth talked you like he did his former associates.

    The above statements are based on my experiences and opinions and emails from many of Bo Short’s former associates that are sick of Bo Short’s alleged lies and broken promises.

    Here is something else I found about Passport and Bo Short. It looks like it is from a fan of his named Ty Tribble. Bobby, what do you make of this one???

    Bo Short I Love Thee, From Ty Tribble

    Bo Short, my darling Bo Short,

    Without a doubt you and Passport are my shining star,

    You filled my head with dreams and whispered in my ears,

    You killed all my bad thoughts and chased away my Quixtar fears,

    Tho I've loved you for so long, I'll love you longer still,

    Whence I'm thrust upon that Conference Call and handed $100 bill,

    I'd kiss you on your mouth so sweet,

    And suck the toes upon your feet,

    Your Bo Short beauty stuns my soul,

    Like butter on a dinner roll,

    And when I'm old and falling down,

    Bo Short my darling our love will ere abound.

    From your sweetheart Ty Tribble (fade to Ty softly crying)

    My favorite Qrush post is the last one. Talk about someone that cuts to the chase. If I were an enemy of Qrush's I would surrender before he made me walk the plank. Read Away:

    Bo Short, Scott Larsen, Eric Janssen & Real Men?
    Quixtar Qrush checked his email and noticed that Qblog’s Eric Janssen has still not admitted his true reason for his Anti-Quixtar Qblog site. Qrush is forced yet again to continue the exposing of a very cynical young person. Qblog’s post is in blue and Qrush’s comments to follow.

    Real Men don't do Quixtar
    Real Men don't do Quixtar.

    Eric Janssen, Real Men aren’t hypocritical liars either. Eric, is the reason why you have concluded that Real Men don’t do Quixtar because you failed at Quixtar? What great logic you have Eric Janssen.

    Real Men don't sell soap, cosmetics or water purifiers.

    Bo Short, Real Men don’t lie about others to save themselves from bankruptcy. Real Men don’t borrow money from friends and not pay it back. Real Men don’t attack other men’s character to improve their image.

    Real Men don't spend an entire weekend listening to some shmuck in a cheap suit ramble on about "dreambuilding" and buying from "Me-Mart." Real Men watch football and baseball and NASCAR every weekend.

    Scott Larsen, Real Men don’t spend their entire lives on the computer being a cynic living in some cheap apartment dreaming about destroying others for his own jollies. Real Men don’t write emails to their former associates lifting themselves up at their fomer associates expense. Real Men marry women, have children and serve their communities in their country.

    Real Men don't care about vitamins or energy drinks. Real Men eat rare steak, drink cold beer and smoke fat cigars.

    Eric Janssen, Real men don’t care about blogging rules or linking etiquette. Real Men don’t mock their wives when the wife attempts to improve their finances. Real Men build business not quit and blame others. Real Men are examples for their kids and don’t glorify swearing, linking to porn, drinking beer and smoking like Eric does in front of his young son. Your son will grow up and be embarrassed to call you dad after reading your blogs.

    Real Men don't listen to "motivational tapes" in their cars. Hell, Real Men don't drive cars. They drive TRUCKS. And when they drive those trucks they listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd or Bruce Springsteen, not some guy name Dexter or Orrin.

    Bo Short, Real Men don’t do motivational tapes claiming to be a diamond when their business is in the toilet and below platinum. Real Men wouldn’t collect money off of a system for years and then claim it was wrong when it benefits their cause. Real Men don’t have to steal from others to build a business. Real Men drive whatever they can afford after they ensure the safety of their own wife and kids. And when they drive that vehicle or are at home, they improve daily to be better servers in their communities. Real Men say all the good they can about everyone and when they can’t speak good they say nothing at all. Real Men have character and will not let anyone assassinate another’s character without coming to their defense. Real Men do not choose to fight, but understand there is no peace without justice.

    The only Diamond a Real Man cares about is the one on the baseball field.

    Scott Larsen, the only diamond a real man cares about is the one he uses to ask for his wife’s hand in marriage. Real Men do not spend 8 hours a night attacking others character while remaining single, lonely, angry, confused, and bitter. Real Men build their wife’s self esteem and protects the honor of their brides.

    Real Men don't trust a man who can't explain what he does for a living during the half-time of a football game. Real Men really don't trust a man who has to explain it during a "special meeting" with a whiteboard, brochures and an hour on a Thursday night.

    Eric Janssen, Real Men don’t trust a man who can’t explain why he spends so many hours away from his wife and child on a blog to attack others. Real Men don’t trust a man who has to have the wife bring home the bacon while he pontificates online. Real Men grow up and get on the playing field of life and not jeer from the stands against the performers.

    Real Men think Quixtar is a woman's business dressed up in a man's suit.

    Bo Short, Real Men see right through your act and that is why Passport has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Real Men see Passport for what it is, a sorry attempt from a depraved man to steal from others who believed in Bo more than he believed in himself. Good Bye Passport and Good Bye MLM Bad Boy Bo Short.

    Real Men don't do Quixtar.

    Scott Larsen, Real Men don’t spend their life talking about that one time back in 1993 that they signed up in Amway. Real Men aren’t victims and they move on and grow up in life.

    Real Men are Real Leaders and love their God, love their country, love their family and display courage in following their dreams. Real Men encourage others in all fields to serve their fellow men and women and leave their mark on this world. Qrush over and out.

    The above statements are based on my opinions and experiences and a very cynical post from a young critic named Eric Janssen who has lost his way.

    A post I found on another blog below. Looks like Bo Short is unpopular everywhere.

    Do you think lying is exclusive to any one company or any one mlm?

    Guess again.

    Bo Short, founder of Passport, scammed his way to the top of Amway by pretending to be someone he is not, and then turned on the company when his business dissolved. He admits to his deceptions about secretly buying his business volume, which was clearly against the rules (and he knew it).

    Now he wants people to trust him, calling Passport “a different kind of biz.” Actually I would agree with him there. He has no training, only a few junk products, no public financials, a huge debt load, and no one netting $500/month, even after 3 years.

    We need to do one of those football style lotteries where we all guess the date when we predict passport will finally file for bankruptcy. The closest person to the correct answer wins.

    Scott Larsen is Bo Short's paid henchman. He is paid to bash successful Quixtar organizations to help Bo Short in his near bankrupt Passport company. Scott Larsen is a bad attitude person and the rule of thumb is that anything he is bashing must be the best because he hates winners. Scott rarely post under his own ID because he is scared of more lawsuits. Scott has written more attorney general complaints than any man alive according to sources and everyone is rejected because the AG know what a moron he is.
