Comments:Re: Objection to the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. When you consider taking a job at a store, the store doesn't have to give you a list of everyone who has quit, make you wait a week to apply, and refer you to another store closer to your home. Why should we have to? I am concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I believe that in its present form, it could prevent me from successfully operating my business as a direct seller of Tastefully Simple products. I understand that your mission is to protect the public from unfair and deceptive acts or practices. However, some of the sections in the proposed rule will make it very difficult for me to sell Tastefully Simple products and help others start Tastefully Simple businesses of their own. Frankly, if this were passed, I and many others would likely feel the need to resign, so the economy would lose all of those entrepreneurs of predominantly woman-owned, small businesses, as well as the businesses that they would have spawned.
