Comments:Dear Federal Trade Commission Member, I am writing to you regarding your proposed regulations for those of us in the direct selling business. I am a PartyLite Leader and have been working in this business for 10 years. In that time, I have been able to build an income that has allowed me to buy my own home and create a life in a new area of California. In addition, I have helped over 100 people start their own PartyLite business, many who have also been able to use this opportunity to support themselves and their families. The regulations you are planning would make it incredibly difficult to introduce anyone to this opportunity. One of the best things about this business is that anyone can start this business and be earning money within a timeframe of two weeks. Most people join PartyLite wanting and often needing to earn money right away, and your proposal would make them wait even longer. In addition, I cannot see myself sharing private information about other PartyLite Consultants and I certainly not want my private information shared without my consent. Please reconsider your proposals to regulate legitimate, professional direct sellers like me. You will only end up impacting my income, my future and my family’s future. Respectfully Yours, Vicki McLeod, Regional Vice President PartyLite Gifts, Inc.
