Business Opportunity Rule
As a small business owner, who is working hard to make a living in these tough times, I want to comment on the proposed rule change R511993. I believe this would hamper my ability to grow my business because of unrealistic extra work, paperwork and notification rules. No other businesses are under the gun in this same way, so why single out the Direct Selling area. The "bad guys" always get found out, and the "good guys" would be very harmed by these new rules. The direct selling market is large, and it gives people who don't have a lot of money an opportunity to start their own business with a minimum of new or no debt. By making these new rules law, that would be virtually impossible and put an undue burden on us. All we want in the chance for the American dream, work hard and make money honestly. I don't think that's too much to ask, but the system under these new rules would most certainly eliminate most of the opportunity.
