I have been with the Shoebox Franchise team since November 2015. I had previous small business experience and had just completed Cert 3 & 4 in Business Administration in 2014. I was keen to start a small business so that I had time flexibility and control of my own destiny. My husband and I met with Sandie & Yvette in July 2015 and immediately felt at ease; all the information was provided up front. We immediately felt they had an excellent knowledge of the business and the market.
In the early days, as with all small business there are bridges to cross. In my case there was many obstacles to overcome but from Day 1 I had full support from Sandie & Yvette through the business development stage and this still continues today. I have now attended 3 annual conferences and enjoy very good relationships with the Shoebox Team and other franchisees.
The ongoing support and assistance with everyday queries are more than I had expected, the franchise support team are always available to assist in my personal development.
Kathie McGow - Gold Coast Central
I have been part of the Shoebox team as the very first franchisee in January 2013.
I was an experienced bookkeeper with over 25 years’ knowledge however, I wanted the support of a franchise in order to start my own business. I met with Sandie and Yvette and felt instantly that their franchise was the type I wanted to be involved in.
I am regularly kept up to date with changes in the legislation and always have their support. We had our first annual conference last year. It was so much fun, I knew that it would be based on information/education during the day and fun/activities during the evening. My lifestyle has completely changed and I am now able to enjoy a better balance between work and fitness. I now participate in marathons and tough mudder challengers, it has been a great journey!
