Comments:This rule, though it has good intentions, is exceedingly restrictive and hindering to the operation of a legitimate free enterprise network marketing business. The company my business is affiliated with, Quixtar, should not require a set number of days before a potential business owner may start his business. It is a restriction that is unnecessary and engenders confusion and apprehension on the part of the business owner. It throws doubt on the legitimacy of my business with the question, "well, WHY can't I get started right now?" As is the case with many companies and businesses, employees are not given the right to know the exact amount of their employer or fellow employee's income, and consequently, this should not be enforced with my business as well. Before a potential independent business owner starts his business, if given the opportunity to see and meet other business owners in the area who may or may not be conducting themselves ethically, said potential business owner may be coerced to get registered with one of the other business owners in the area who are not conducting themselves properly. This, coupled with the fact that I am personally the one who did the work to meet or find this prospect and may consequently be robbed of a potentially profitable business owner, combine to what could be called a tragedy and an injustice to my business. I trust that you will make the right decision to allow for those of us who build our businesses on integrity, values, and ethical principles to continue building them without these unnecessary and potentially crippling restrictions. Thank you for your time and consideration.
