Comments:I am concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I believe that in its present form, 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. When I became a Tastefully Simple independent consultant 3 years ago, I did it primarily because I wanted to earn some additional money. My family now depends on this extra income, and I'm very concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule, because I believe it will jeopardize my business.
