Comments:To Whom It May Concern: We have recently been notified of the FTC’s Business Opportunity Rule R1511993. Given our position as business owners and dedicated advocates of fair business practices, we are strongly opposed to this potential addition to the FTC regulations. As strict adherents of all federal trade regulations, our company and all our consultants would face insurmountable difficulties in attempting to reach compliance. Our business thrives on the unique culture created within a direct selling organization; this culture is exemplified by a simple sign-up procedure and straightforward business opportunities. The new Business Opportunity Rule would greatly discourage future growth of independent consultants. With such rigid administration in place, new consultants would be lost in paperwork before they even learn the business! In addition, the financial and growth incentives of developing their businesses through recruiting will be overshadowed by the immense amounts of record-keeping and time-restrictive formalities required by your organization. We ask that you please reconsider enforcing the Business Opportunity Rule. Sincerely, Debra Lin "Cookie Lee" Owner and President of Cookie Lee, Inc.
