Comments:To Whom it may concern, I strongly disagree with the proposed Business Oportunity Rule, R511993. The proposed ruling would greatly cripple my business. My business is dependent on the ability to move quickly. When the opportunity of my business is presented to a prospect, they are given the full opportunity to investigate any claims that I am making, in fact I encourage it. Some people see my business and are elated at the opportunity presented to them. Some see this business as what they have been looking for, for a really long time. The opportunity to do something great. Be someone great. This nation was founded by people who did not follow the ordinary. Great people of this world are defined by the things that made them stand out. Whether it be Bill Gates, Ronald Regan, Bill Clinton, Sir Edmond Hillary, or Warren Buffet. They all followed the path less traveled and because they did they are or will become known for doing something less common. My business, this business of direct selling, gives ordinary people the chance to become unordinary. The chance to do something they never imagined possible. They have to opportunity to have an income as high as they desire, to live how they want to live. Yet by passing and enforcing some of these rules, would be stripping the opportunity away from people. My Quixtar business, is just that mine. When a prospect registers and becomes an Independent Business Owner, they are told that it is NOT a get rich quick scheme. That in order to suceed will require alot of hard work. The registration cost is around $65. That is less than it takes to fill up by vehicle with gas. All the issues, requiring a prospect to wait 7 days, providing all the litigation againist the company, a reference list, and providing disclosers on earnings would not only cripple my business but would put me out of business. If we are required to list all the litigation against Quixtar, I would like to see all the litigation against Wal-Mart posted on the doors of their stores. When a prospect is interested in the business, I tell them of a way for them to meet other business owners. It usually is after they meet other people that they register. And finally providing disclosers on the earning amounts would be immature. If that is required, please make sure that all colleges disclose how exactly a freshmen in college will move up the corporate ladder and how much they will be making at every step along the way. Instead of telling them that there is "X" amount to be made as a doctor or lawyer, because each one makes different amounts. In this business as well. People who learn and grow will make more. The ones that build a bigger business are rewarded for their hard work. Quixtar is an amazing company. By placing these restrictions on Quixtar business owners would possibly be hindering the next Warren Buffet from giving away billions of dollars to help other people. Do you want to hold someone back who wants to do that. Quixtar is the only company I know that will reward you many times over for the hard work that you do. And it is the only way for people who are less advantaged to achieve great and amazing things for their lives. I strongly urge you to reconsider and do not pass this bill with these restrictions on direct sellers accross the nation.
