Business Opportunity Rule
Hi-I believe the proposed rules for business opportunites will hurt our business and this country that was based on free enterprise without doing anything to prevent deception. The Quixtar opportunity is extremely legite. We let people know they can check out our business with the Better Business Bureau and the US Chamber of Commerce. Steve Van Andel, was chosen by his peers to be the Chairman of the US Chamber of Commerce. I believe the proposed rule of 10 references needs to be eliminated for the above reason. References are subjective, where the BBB and the US Chamber of Commerce are not-or at least shouldn't be. I understand there are many "get rich quick scams", but Quixtar is not one of them and our sister company Amway already went throught the "fire" years ago and the FTC stated we were "highly desirable in the marketplace". The proposed rule of giving a prospect a list of all lawsuits, arbitrations, is extremely unfair. Especially since it states"...regardless of whether or not the accusation was true". Please do not penalize Quixtar and us as IBO's for other company's bad business. We do our best to set the example of the golden rule. Thank you for your time. God Bless.
