Comments:Regarding the Business Opportunity Rule - R511993 Let me begin by saying I am not at all against the FTC imposing rules and regulations on MLM companies and the way they do business. It is a needed and important governing body. I have read the proposed Business Opportunity Rule and believe this rule is a huge mistake in assuming that all MLM companies are created equal. As a Xango Independent distributor, I could not be more satisfied with how the Xango company conducts business with me. NEVER have I had any reason to complain about their integrity, honesty or service to me as a distributor. It has been such a positive experience for me that I only wish I would have heard about the Xango opportunity sooner. They are an MLM company that has indeed set the standard in this industry for all other MLM companies to attain to. Initially, I became a distributor of this product for my own use only, having no intention of doing this as a business. Had these stringent rules been in place at the time I enrolled, I know I would not have enrolled, It would have been to much of a bother, just trying to understand the ruling. It would have made me fearful of the product and of the company. And had that been the case, what a shame that would have been. Not only did the product impact my health in a huge way, but the business opportunity if brought to me as a result of being a consumer of the Xango product, has changed my life as well. I now for the first time in my life am able to have my own home based business, doing what I am good at, and making the extra income my husband and I need to make it in this world. With hard work, determination and integrity our plan is to continue building our business to assure a good future for our family. It is truly the American Dream and Free Enterprise in action. Imposing these rules on a first class company and opportunity such as Xango presents to consumers would literally devistate my business I have worked hard to build thus far. I URGE you to take whatever action that can be taken to reconsider and revise this rule. In the attempt to crack down on MLM companies that do not operate with the same integrity that Xango does, you are hurting everyone. The impact on hundreds of thousands of honest distributors will be devistaing not only to them, but to the American economy as well. There HAS to be a better way - and this rule as it is stated must be changed. I believe the way it is written would still allow the disonest MLM companies to remain dishonest, and severely cripple the honest ones that are really making a positive impact in the world.
