|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 437|
Comments:There are 2 problems with the proposed regulations: 1- The seven-day waiting period This would mean that a potential new Consultant could not join until seven days after being provided with detailed papers about the business. In our business this could affect the person joining in regards to her turning her Show into a Starter Show, and losing the momentum of her enthusiasm and that of her friends and family. Basically this would completely alter how someone gets started. 2- Ten required references To sponsor someone, it would be necessary to provide each potential new Consultant with names and phone numbers of ten geographically closest Consultants so they could get references about PartyLite. Not only would this be time-consuming from a clerical point of view, it might even be considered an invasion of privacy for other Leaders and Consultants.
