Comments:I am concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. In its present form, I believe it could prevent me from successfully operating my business as a direct seller of Tastefully Simple products. I understand that your mission is to protect the public from unfair and deceptive acts or practices. However, some of the sections in the proposed rule will make it very difficult for me to sell Tastefully Simple products and help others start Tastefully Simple businesses of their own. Since our "Starter Kit" is only $170, the financial "burden" to a prospective recruit is minimual. Most TV's, stereos, cameras and other electronic equipment costs more than starting your own business with Tastefully Simple. I urge you to reconcider this proposal since it would make my job harder and not allow me to offer this fantastic business opportunity to those who need extra income.
