Comments:I would like to express my displeasure and, therefor, my opposition to the rules as they are proposed at this time. I am solely in the Shaklee distribution business to get discounts on the products for myself, my family and my friends. As I do this, I operate as a 'one man shop', and never sell the products retail. Rather, I give them to family and friends who inquire for them. I look forward to a time when I could try to develop this into a business opportunity and I find the current proposals an unfair hurdle placed clearly in front of the small businessman. Surely, you must see how adding these measures complicates the 'one man' operation in its administrative duties. Please give consideration to my position, and that of the many other small businesses derived from Shaklee distribution, who, like me, are also very small organizations. We are over burdened with the normal duties of advertising and selling our products and services. Please do not cause us to divide our time in even smaller pieces. Thank you for allowing this comment.
