I am interested in starting a foot and nail business. I don`t know where to start.

Is there any seminars in East Coast area?


I would imagine that this would be profitable. I'm a home health nurse and patients are always asking if I would do their nails. I'm not allowed. Kepp me updated on your progress,\.

My suggestion is that you start with your state's Department of Public Health to check their requirements regarding foot and nail care standards around this. Podiatrists are required to follow the Department of Public Health's requirements for foot care and nail care, so this should help outline public health requirements / policies and may point you in the right direction as to what is required to start this business. There are also standards for nail care for Cosmetologists as well, as they deal with nails / nail care, so there should also be standards for them as well.

After you have the DPH standards / policies for foot and nail care, you can then move on to obtaining a business license, etc. There should be an outline of how to start a small business in your state in your state's main government's website. Most states have this sort of thing.

Below is a link to the U.S. Small Business Association that may provide resources for you to start your new business.

Best Wishes!
