Comments:My wife and I have been in "direct marketing" for 17 years and have built many strong and long term relationships with people in my organization. I am VERY concerned about the proposed changes, and how they can hurt the people on our team, and prevent them from being able to create and grow successful businesses. Here are my suggestions: 1. Should create a level playing field by requiring clear, simple, and standardized income disclosures that apply to all direct sellers. 2. Should require a reasonable cancellation policy. 3. Should not require a seven-day waiting period before the prospect could register. 4. Should not require direct seller references be provided to prospects or disclosures of past litegation. 5. Should not require financial records to be disclosed to prospects.
