Comments:I am very concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I believe that in its present form, it could prevent me from successfully operating my business as a direct seller of Tastefully Simple products. I understand that your mission is to protect the public from unfair and deceptive acts or practices, and fully support the effort to do so. Companies that are running scams do nothing but hurt those of us who are running honest businesses. However, some of the sections in the proposed rule will make it very difficult for me to sell Tastefully Simple products and help others start Tastefully Simple businesses of their own. My Tastefully Simple business has had a phenomenally positive impact on my life, financially and otherwise, and I would hate to see it become difficult for others to take advantage of the same opportunity.
