Comments:The Direct Selling Association and individual members including PartyLite are filing statements to the FTC to modify the proposed regulations to be more practical for legitimate companies like ours. In addition, all Consultants are encouraged to send letters or online communications to share their thoughts with the FTC.A seven-day waiting period would mean that a potential new Consultant could not join until seven days and might have to wait to turn her Show into a Starter Show. She'd lose the momentum of her enthusiasm and that of her friends and family. Ten required references not only would be time-consuming from a clerical point of view, it might even be considered an invasion of privacy for other Leaders and Consultantsto provide.
