Comments:I have been a Shaklee distributor for 23 years. Originally, I became a Shaklee Distributor because I love the company's nutritional, personal care and household products. I also wanted to earn some additional income working from home. I have recently retired from the Internal Revenue Service and I depend upon this extra income for our livelihood. While I appreciate the work of the FTC to protect consumers, I believe this proposed new rule has many unintended consequences for direct sellers and that there are less burdensome alternatives available to the agency to achieve its goals. Thank you for your time in considering my comments.
