Comments:The financial opportunity Partylite has provided for my family allowed me to leave my corporate Financial Analyst position and focus on my family and Partylite business for the past 12 years. I have shared this opportunity with many other people and have witnessed awesome achievements. One gal held a show and decided to start to earn Christmas money 10 days before Christmas. It made a $700 difference for her family. I am concerned with the 7 day waiting period, because some people need income within that timeframe. I understand that some businesses do not operate legitimately, but the proposal negatively impacts those that do as well. I also have concern for privacy with having to disclose 10 nearest consultants to a prospective new consultant. Not only is this a cumbersome activity for the person providing the information, I don't see how it can benefit the new consultant. In our business, you can meet other consultants at trainings. No personal information needs to be shared unless both parties are willing to share it. I would not appreciate my personal information being widely distributed to people I do not know. While I appreciate the FTC's concern to address illegitimate business practices, this proposal negatively impacts those with integrity, as well.
