Comments:I strongly oppose the Proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I do understand that it's your responsibility to protect the public from unfair and deceptive practices, but I believe there are more honest and realistic methods of doing this without threatening the income of a lot of hardworking honest distributors who have always followed ethical means of representing thier companies. There is a good chance these requirements would discourage many prospective purchasers of the products that have given people a safe effective way to prevent serious health challenges and saved the government money in their seniors years. Most of us became distributors only after positive results with the products and company philosophy of doing an honest business. The expense and time tied up with these procedures would discourage many average folks who have been able to use the supplemental income of a business like Shaklee to support them when there full time jobs were eliminated not due to any fault of there own. Please consider a different approach to meeting your compliance needs.
