Comments:As an independent consultant with PartyLite Inc., my business would be adversely affected by the proposed changes in the Direct Sales Association regulations. The 7 day waiting period could cause new consultants to lose momentum. It is important to carry the momentum from their starter show into starting their career as a consultant with the company. Such provisions would add no additional protection to the individual since there is no practical penalty if the individual does not fulfill their agreement. Also, requiring that 10 references of other leaders and consultants in the area be provided to a new consultant could be considered an invasion of privacy. PartyLite is an honest company comprised of honest, hardworking consultants. We should not be penalized for other organizations who may operate outside of the rules and regulations.
