Comments:Dear Sirs, I have been in direct sales in a limited manner for many years.A family member's serious illness created a need for extra income to buy health products for full recovery. Direct sales helped supplement our income making this possible. I am concerned that the proposed Business Opportunity Rule with the elimination of the $500 business threshold will force "we"small business ownersto be forced to follow regulations that should be kept for larger companies.I also have concerns that the seven-day waiting period may be impractical for many small businesses My small business is a treasure. Please consider these concerns.
