Comments:I am somewhat disturbed at the proposed new rulings for business opportunities. I realize that there are fradulent groups preying on Americans, however, I feel that this new proposal, if approved would do great harm to the established and reputable businesses already in operation. I have been with the Nature's Sunshine program for nearly two years now, and have had excellent dealings with them in all aspects of business. This opportunity has helped me and my family tremendously both financially and health wise. Being a single parent is definitely a challenge, and having had the freedom to become a part of such a program has greatly benefitted me as well as my friends and family. Knowing how hard it is today to just scrape by and make ends meet with two paychecks (not to mention just having one income) having the freedom to participate in such a program is a huge blessing. I feel that the proposed rulings would put too much stress on such reputable programs and make it even more difficult for those wanting to participate as well as adding unnecessary stresses, delays, and other hardships to those who are already members of such programs. I appreciate the FTC allowing the opportunity to have my opinions heard in this matter, and am sure that the FTC will make a ruling that will be in the best interest of all Americans.
