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 4.5 years. In that time, I have been able to build an income that allows me to have a little extra in this tough economy. This business has also allowed me to start saving for my first home with my new husband. In addition, I have brought approximately 30 people into this business, 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 incredible 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 do not want my private information shared without my specific 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, Kerri L. Johnson Unit Leader - PartyLite Gifts, Inc.
