Comments:I have been an Independent Business Owner for about 3 years and have had nothing but a very positive experience. I have chosen the Quixtar Corporation for most of my infrastructure because of it’s clarity of purpose, ethics and integrity in business practices. When I started my business, the contract that I signed with Quixtar was straight forward and clear. It was designed protect both parties. It is reasonable the require minimal information to people to make an educated decision. However, there is no reason to require exhaustive documentation, references, and a “7 day waiting period” for any direct selling organizations, as this will damage the US economy and moral. A very high percentage of Americans have their own businesses and I believe the proposed Rules are discriminating against direct selling organizations in particular. My other IT business provides products and services similar to that of Quixtar, (reselling and manufacturing products and services) yet it does not have such FTC proposed requirements. The FTC would have to propose for ALL business to have such requirements and that is impossible, unnecessary, and ridiculous.
