Comments:My wife and I have been building our Quixtar business together since 1986. Prior to then, both of us were building the Quixtar, formerly Amway business, as singles. We have had success in the business reaching the level of Gold Direct Distributor. In reviewing the proposed FTC rules, while we do feel that laws should be in place to curtail fraudulent business opportunities, we have always felt that Quixtar/Amway has been an excellent and legitimate business opportunity. The things that we feel would hurt our business and others whom we have brought into the business and will bring into the business follow. We feel that having someone wait seven days before being allowed to sign up for the business would be too long. There are some individuals who, once they see this great opportunity, want to sign up right away. We also feel that giving prospects names of 10 other people in the business may affect our business or some of our prospects because those individuals might want to sign up with someone else, even though we have exposed them first to the business opportunity. Also, in reference to giving out names, phone numbers and addresses of business owners would be an invasion of privacy. We feel that it is also unneccesary to provide past litigation information out to persons because we are not versed in that area, and feel that it would be a waste of time and information to share with others.
