Comments:I am writing in response to some proposed FTC rule changes that if implemented will negatively affect the opportunity I have to pursue a business of my own in a free country. Specifically, imposing a waiting period on new business owners is not necessary because Quixtar has a money back guarantee on any business investment, unconditionally, for up to 120 days. This is more than enough time for someone to back out of the business if they find it is not for them. Also, the need to provide 10 references would be a burden on us in two key ways. First, the added work necessary to keep a list up to date of available references will create an undue hardship of time. Second, those asked to be a reference would have their privacy violated and may, if they are new, not understand that they are not to 'steal' other peoples prospects. The way we build the business by allowing new prospects to see the FTC approved plan and supporting documentation, and then meet independent business owners that have experience and can give a credible answer to questions is more than satisfactory to us. Thanks for your consideration of these comments.
