Comments:I am concerned about the 10 required references and seven day waiting period that you are proposing for direct sales. I have worked in direct sales for 7 years and I think that the proposal might do more harm than good. Can you give a 7 day right to cancel rather than blanket waiting period? If I recall people now have a 3 day right to cancel. The required references could be an invasion of privacy. I don't want people giving out my name/number or address to their new recruits and I wouldn't be comfortable giving out my fellow sister coordinator and consultants names and numbers, at least not for 10 of them! Please consider these actions carefully. All of us are concerned about fly by night scam businesses or those with unscrupulous practices but don't punish all businesses because of those that cheat and scam.
