Comments:To whom it may concern; I encourage the ftc to allow current sponsoring practices with direct selling businesses to remain as they are. I go to great lengths to educate and inform my prospects before they make a decision to join our team. There are many times when a prospect takes information home and of their own accord, decide to join our team within days or sometimes hours after being show our business. Forcing us to delay this decision making process for the prospect will harm the spontaneous side of our team building efforts. I ask my prospects what they need as far as information and encourage them to make their own decision on their own timetable, letting them know I am not pushing them into something, simply opening a door for them. Once a prospect decides to join our team, they like being able to register and get started right away. It alows the business to grow rapidly and with excitement. I have never had a teammate say they wish they had waited before they got on the team. Even the ones who decide to get involved the day they are introduced to business are glad for the opportunity to start right away. Perhaps a better rule would be to require direct selling companies to offer a full refund of the cost, and cancellation of the registration agreement signed by the new prospect or team member anytime during the first sixty or ninety days, or some time period, in case the prospect changes their mind about getting involved. Thank you for listening. Please allow the continuation of current sponsoring and registration practices.
