Comments:Please consider altering your new regulations so that new consultants do not have to wait to begin their business. Their enthusiasm at start up is a large part of their early success. There are no start up costs involved in our business, and therefore no risks. A business like ours should be exempt from rules to protect consumer investments. Also to require giving references would be difficult since we are all independent consultants, I have no right to give out another consultant's identity. Our company has literature with this information provided for contacting and that should be sufficient. Trying to protect people from unscrupulous marketing is important. Just be careful that you don't damage legitimate companies and their programs in the process. Thank you for listening. Pam Huyck PartyLite Leader PartyLite Gifts, Inc.
