|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 437|
Comments:Proposed FTC Business Opportunity Rule Seven-Day Waiting Period... -Casts direct selling plan in a negative light. -Leads to record keeping and administrative problems. -Causes unnecessary delays. Litigation Reporting... -Is unfair that it does not distinguish between winning and losing lawsuits. References... -Is impractical to find 10 nearest distributors. -Raises privacy issues due to ID theft and safety. Appreciate FTC's Goals, But... -We understand there may be fraudulent groups out there, but the FTC's proposed rule would unfairly target legitimate direct selling businesses. Personal Story... -I have been selling this product for over ten years. -I am a single mother of three, self-employed with my direct marketing business. It is my income and has afforded my living and time with my children. -Selling products has giving me the opportunity to be my own business and given me confidence to succeed at whatever I choose.
