Comments:In regards to Business Opportunity rule R511993, I would like to voice some of my concerns. Since I am a distributor for a very well-run organization, my fears are that the 7-day waiting period would cast direct selling plans in a negative light. It could also cause problems with record keeping and administrative problems, and delays in delivery. In litigation cases there are no distinctions between cases won or cases lost. In this day and age, it seems ludicrous to have to find the 10 closest distributors. We appreciate the FTC's goals, and we know there are fraudulent groups out there, but the FTC's proposed rule would unfairly target legitimate direct selling businesses. I have been a distributor for Natures' Sunshine for several years, and although I don't use it as an income for my family, it has helped us be able to afford good quality products that have made a huge difference in the health and well-being of my family and friends, since most of us are benefitting greatly from the holistic approach to health. Please consider my concerns in this matter. Thank you for your time.
