Comments:To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter because I am concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I believe that in its presented form, it would prevent the business I operate from continuing as a XanGo™ Independent Distributor, and would destroy the small business I have worked so hard to build and operate, as well as those of the dozen people I have helped. I have been operating a home based business, which is an independent Contractor representing XanGo™ LLC, for more than 2 months. I contracted to operate this business because I loved the product and wanted to share it with others. Many of the people Please don’t destroy these small business people who are supporting their families with their XanGo™ income alone. There are, today, thousands who are solely supporting their entire families from their XanGo™ income. Some of the sections in the proposed rule (Rule 511993) would make it hard or almost impossible for me to sell the XanGo™ product and would make it especially difficult, if not impossible, to introduce others to this fantastic opportunity under the proposed rules. Changing to the new rules would devastate the growth and profit potential of the business we operate. I believe this seven-day waiting period is unnecessary, because XanGo™ already has a 90% buyback policy for all products including sales kits purchased by a salesperson. The current procedures in place by XanGo™ already insure that no one can ever be hurt financially by the XanGo™ business opportunity. One of the most difficult sections of the proposed rule is the seven day waiting period to enroll a new distributor. The procedures associated with the proposed rule change would make it, literally, extremely difficult to build and operate a XanGo™ business. This change would stifle the initial profit and actually make operating a XanGo™ business less profitable than it currently is under the existing rules and procedures. For a new rule to stifle profit should point out the inadequacy of thought that has generated this new rule proposal. The XanGo™ sales kit only costs $35. With these new proposed rules, the XanGo™ opportunity would cease to be for the average person and would require one to be an aggressive and capable business person in the beginning. This is exactly opposite to what the XanGo™ business opportunity was designed to do. I would be glad to provide references, but in this day of identity theft, I am very uncomfortable giving out the personal information of individuals (without their approval) to strangers. Women in my organization may be subject to sexual or racial harassment so, unless the FTC passes an addition to this rule. Also, sharing names and addresses of existing distributors with a "prospect" would open an organization to being attacked by other businesses. A person from another sales organization who wished to proselytize an existing organization would literally be given the key to the bank….it would be like hiring the fox to protect the hens in a hen house. Why would any person in his/her right mind feel sharing existing contacts and/or customers with their competition was in their best interest? Daily I see many scams on the Internet and I have been approached by many crooks because of my success. The proposed rule R511993 will do nothing to stop these unscrupulous crooks. They hurt my business! This rule will not stop Crooks – they violate the current rule all the time.But I am a good American citizen and the proposed rule R511993 will hurt me. Thank you and please help me retain the right to operate a XanGo™ business where the company, XanGo™ LLC already has procedures in place to protect anyone from loss of money and/or time and credibility.who are damaging or hurting innocent people,XanGo™ is a good company, please do not lump great companies like XanGo™, which has a 100% money back 30 day guarantee, into the same barrel as those who currently take advantage of others daily.
