Comments:Federal Trade Commission July 17, 2006 To Whom it May Concern: I have been a consultant for nine years now, and have always been impressed with the integrity of PartyLite Gifts, Inc. Please consider modifying the proposed regulations designed to protect consumers from companies that might defraud or scam the public to be more practical for legitimate companies like PartyLite Gifts, Inc., which has been in business since 1973 and has been a valuable member of the Direct Selling Association for years. We are consistently voted at the top of the D.S.A. for our dedication and commitment to providing high quality candles and accessories to our customers. By making a potential new consultant wait for seven days before he/she could start as a consultant for PartyLite Gifts would be detrimental to the individual. Also, by making it necessary to provide potential new consultants with names and phone numbers of ten consultants in order to get references would be an invasion of privacy for other Leaders and Consultants, and would be another hoop through which to jump when one just wants to be able to begin as a consultant through PartyLite Gifts. I cannot say enough positive things about PartyLite Gifts as a company and I would hate for it to be more difficult to share the wonderful opportunities with others who would benefit tremendously by joining our team. PartyLite has changed my life for the better, and I want to be able to share this opportunity with as many people as I can and I would appreciate if you would modify these proposed regulations so it will not hinder our company as a whole, as well as the many individuals this would affect in a negative way, who would like to be a consultant. Thank you for your time and for your consideration. Sincerely, Jennifer Currie, Independent Consultant for PartyLite Gifts, Inc. since 1997.
