Comments:I am 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. 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. As a new, part-time consultant, I have been very impressed with the training and leadership provided by this company. Perhaps, as an alternative, regulations could be put in place requiring training and supervision measures be enacted in all direct sales companies. Thank you for allowing me to contribute my opinion and for taking it into consideration.
