Comments:I am concerned about the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. While I respect your responsibility to protect the public from unfair and deceptive acts or practices, several sections of this ruling seem UNfair and will make it very difficult for me to sell Gano Excel products. The seven day waiting period if most confusing and burdensome. Why would this ruling not be in affect for people buying TV's, cars, and other items that cost much more than the $24.99 sales kit from my company? There is already a buypack policy for all products including the sales kit in existence with my company. Further, the reports that accompany this ruling are burdensome and will greatly inhibit my ability to build my business. I will be spending too much time filling out paperwork in order for Gano Excel to complete accurate reports for FTC. This ruling appears to be micro-managing the American enterpreneaur instead of assisting them in the spirit of economics and competition. Additionally, in this day of identity theft, I am uncomfortable giving out the personal information of individuals without their approval to complete strangers. I feel this will reduce the ability to earn an income as people will be very concerned about their own privacy. Consider too, that most clients are women. What impact will this have on harrassment? I depend on this income to supplement my budget. I sell and use these products because I enjoy and like them. I believe they are beneficial to my well-being as well as others. I do appreicate your attempts to protect consumers, but this ruling is impractical, violates privacy, and unfairly targets direct selling businesses. Thank you for your consideration.
