|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 437|
Comments:I, Brad J. Berendes, am writing in reference to Business Opportunity Rule, R511993. I encourage the FTC to decline the Business opportunity rule. I have been involved with Quixtar as an Independent Business Owner for seven years. I have had a positive experience the whole time. I believe the stipulations that are outlined in the proposed Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 would not benefit my business in any way. I believe the way Quixtar has conducted business with the registration process of new Independent Business Owners is sufficient. I feel that the proposal is unfair, and I don't believe any other business out there has to go thru the process that is proposed in rule R511993. The people we bring into our business are well informed thru literature packs, DVD's and many other business support materials. Also, the agreement that is electronically signed thru Quixtar also informs the new business owner of the rules and rights they have as a Independent Business Owner. Once again I strongly encourage the FTC to decline rule R511993.
