Comments:Re: Proposed Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing because I am concerned about the proposed new business opportunity rule. If this is put into law, it would be oppressive and burdensome for companies and distributors. I belong to an honest and reputable company that is helping many people to improve their health and life while pursuing the American Dream. This company, Young Living, is known for it's products. Most distributors join the company because of it's products, and work on selling the products, not selling the business opportunity. It only costs $50 to become a distributor of this company; and for that $50 you receive products and materials worth much more than that. Plus, Young Living has a money-back return policy. There is no great financial risk. Passing a law that would require new distributors to wait before being able to join a company seems to be un-American and limits our freedom and our right to conduct a legitimate business. It is much riskier to buy a used car. It would make more sense to me to have a waiting period before being able to drive a car off of a lot. I think we need protection from used car salemen, not legitimate companies. The part about disclosing names of previous customers to potential new distributors is an invasion of privacy. A lot of people depend on a networking business to maintain their families. They have a right to do this and a right to do it without any unnecessary restrictions. Please take this into consideration and do not pass this Business Opportunity Rule.
