Comments: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 8 1/2 years. In that time, I have been able to build an income that allows me to remain home during the day to raise my children and add very necessary income to our household. In addition, I have brought many 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 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 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. I know there are dishonest people in the world without a proper work ethic, however, please do not let them spoil the wonderful direct sales opportunity for others. That is the beauty of the business....flexibility! This is something that we do not always have in the regular business world. Thank you for your consideration.
