Comments:I have been an independent consultant and Leader for PartyLite Gifts for over 5 years...and have helped more than 50 new consultants join this wonderful company. I believe that imposing a 7-10 day waiting period would unfairly penalize those companies who have stellar reputations and clearly are not defrauding the public. It appears from the notice that the intent of the 7-10 day waiting period is to give the purchaser time to review the contract before putting any money at risk. PartyLite consultants are not putting any money at risk, because the kit is free. PartyLite has always maintained its no cash investment operating model and as such there is no risk. In addition, it is my very strong opinion that my contact information is mine to give out when I feel it necessary, and not to be given freely to those who may or may not have a legitimate need for it. The requirement to provide the contact information of fellow PartyLite consultants is an invasion of their privacy and could potentially put them at risk from scammers looking to get information about people in the area by masquarading as someone interested in a business opportunity. In these days of hightened awareness regarding personal information it shocks me that this is even being considered. In closing the regulations being considered would be harmful to my business and impact my income, my future and my family's future. As well as my ability to bring people into this business as I have done over the last 5 years. I do hope you will reconsider.
