impaired, have arthritis, have had a stroke, have had an operation ie hip replacement, knee replacement, are overweight, are disabled and those who just cannot get down to cut
their toenails anymore.

# 12. What If It Doesn’t Work For ME?

Like all things in life worth having, there is no guarantee this will work for you. There is, however, a complete system that when followed has been proven to be successful.

Ask yourself, what are the moments you feel most proud of in your life? Was it when the opportunity was easy to achieve? Or was it when you had to stretch yourself a little in some way, and as a result of this you learned that you had more in you than you realized!

Success without fulfillment is failure. Fulfillment comes through growing and contributing to others. This is one of the reasons why this business is so popular.

# 13. What If I Don’t Have Much Confidence or Experience?

Many of our franchisees come to us with only limited confidence in their ability to cut toenails and run their own business. But, why would it be any other way? This is not a business you have experience in yet, so how can you know how well you will do it?

You may be low in confidence, but what you will have is a drive to improve, a desire to meet people, and an enthusiasm to create more success in your own life through making a difference for others. These are the qualities we notice our franchisees possess!

We are seeking dedicated people with a passion for caring. Ideally they also possess initiative, integrity and ambition.

# 14. What exactly will my role involve as a new franchise owner?

Franchise owners must be willing to follow The Toenail People business system and operations manuals.

# 15. How much could I end up earning?

Your earning potential and your level of gross income will depend upon a range of factors including the effort and energy you put into your business. While we cannot provide projected earnings for you, we can provide a financial modeling tool, and key information to allow you do your own projections and set earnings targets to support your lifestyle. We will provide as much information as we can under the provisions of the Franchising Code of Practice, but strongly recommend that you also seek independent business advice.
