Comments:I have been selling PartyLite for 3 1/2 yrs. I started my business overseas on a military base. When your in the military overseas it is very hard to get a job on the bases due to the hiring process of nationals always getting hired first. I was very upset at first and then I found PartyLite. It has helped my husband and I buy our 1st home after 12 years in the USMC Active Duty. We never would of been able to afford a house on just his income, not to mention I took my job with me back here to the states. Sponsoring is a big part of my business, since the more we sponsor and the more they sell and sponsor the more I make off of my Central Unit. Everyone is offered a starter kit at no cost to them and if they choose PL isn't for them they have the option of letting PL buy it all back at 90% or keeping everything they got for FREE. Not to mention all the paperwork I would be required to keep on top of all the records I have to already keep and this also is penalizing the new consultant that wants to start their business when their ready to. As far as references, How many people are going to want to have to call Japan, Italy, Ehngland, Germany, etc.... to check on references are those of us in the military going to penalized for not haveing direct consultants in the states under us since 98% of us that lived on this bases sponsored on these bases and still live on these bases. In closing, I appreciate everything the FTC is trying to do to support consumers like myself, but these proposals would negatively impact legitimate, and absolutely wonderful businesses like PartyLite.
