    Reminds me of an old joke:
    "How can I make a small fortune in the Philippines?"
    "First, come here with a LARGE fortune!" :smile:

    There is one other option, leverage your existing profession and work as a consultant using your home country as your business 'base' and do all your work remotely. Global marketplace now, pick up a short term contract from US/UK/Euro/Oceania etc.

    Unless you want a particular 'bricks and mortar' type of business.

    Thanks for the response. What is the basis of your statement? Do you have any experience in running a business in the Philippines? What about outsourcing companies like Qualfon?

    Friend was well known Restauranter here in DMGTE he was always stating that the harder he worked / appeared to be more successful, the more his rent etc were increased. Plenty of locals well versed on sitting on a Foreigners shoulders and being carried up the mountain!
