Comments:Since when has a bad choice in ones life been something that there is a need to have regulations for? I understand that it can be frustrating when someone makes a bad choice for themselves, but that is a choice they made for themselves whether it was a good one or not. There should not be a regulation that would inhibit any progress a salesperson can make for their business. The first full month of business is where the momentum starts and continues to build, which is what can make or break a new venture. It should be up to the individual to listen to their inner voice on whether the venture that they are thinking of taking is the right one and is at the right time in their life. I have been a consultant with Partylite for a year now. I started as a customer 12 years ago. In 2000 I decided to give Partylite a try to earn extra money for my family. My business failed at that time. It was not the right time for my business. Five years later I gave it another try and am now watching my business grow at a slow and steady pace. Which is what I had planned for it. It seems to me that someone is always trying to place blame on someone or thing for their failures. Often times the blame belongs in their lap. There is not one business that doesn't go through those unforseen things that life throws our way. They have to then decide what plan of action they will take to survive and succeed. I, as a consultant would not like my name relseased out their to just anyone. I know that our region of the company hold meetings every month and that anyone that is interested in starting their own business are welcome to come and join in on the meeting to see if it is something that they would enjoy being a part of. Yes, you will get those that are more interested in signing someone up and that not all information is given, but that is when the individual listens to that inner voice and those that are in their lives to give them feedback on whether it is a good choice for themselves. Their is already a period of time that someone can change their mind after they sign the papers. It is up to the individual to read the fine print on the contract that they are signing and to ask any questions involving their change of heart. I know that some companies or their consultants can be forceful, but that should be a warning for the individual to back off or go to another consultant that can be more helpful and guide them to a strong and growing business. The feeling is wonderful when you do have someone that is a big part of your business and has helped you succeed.
