As the title says , I have an investment of £1000 ...

I am planning to go live in S.E.Asia November 2019 ... I have £10,000 back up ( plus a full time job in England so this amount is rising ) but I want to invest a £1000 for the next 7 months and hope , with work , I can make £1500 a month business from it to sustain my stay with out using my back up money.
I don't want to be tied to one location in S.E.Asia.
Besides the normal , wise crack ( excuse the pun ) sell my ass , I need to get out of England , as to be honest , this island is sinking , rapidly. IMO..

What do I have .... my background in S.E.Asia ?
I'm a qualified photographer , with over $5000 worth of camera equip.
25 yrs as a builder. ( previously worked as a const. consultant / manager for people ( new expats ) who have no experience in building house , so I managed the building of their new homes , I also speak Thai ) but unofficially and without permit to do so.
I lived in Thailand for 15 yrs. owned 4 businesses ( bricks n motor biz , not bars ) but sold them to return to the UK due to family issues.
I also popped over to Australia to work 4 months to pay the next 8 months in S.E.Asia. So I'm an experienced traveller ( travelled most of S.E.Asia ).

What does S.E.Asia how to offer...?
1. Beautiful beaches
2. Sexy women
3. Cheaper labour
4. Plenty of businesses with no online or Facebook experience , when it comes to promotions.

What are my options... ?
1. travel blogger ?
2. Selling sexy Asian girl photography to instagrame pages to give them a steady flow of new material ?
3. A BHW member to suggest / start a JV. With me , this would be great. Poss.. a sexy Asian girl insta and CPA... ?
4. I was thinking of setting up an app making use of the sexy girls out there , with advertising banners for sale , as I travel getting businesses to sign up. But feel this is a big ask , and £1000 wouldn't be enough , would it ?
5. In Cambodia , a friend of mine wants to invest $10,000 each ( 50/50) on a 19 roomed hotel , being rented out at $3000 a month. But I have no hotel exp. But I don't like the bricks n motor idea.
6. Possible dropshipping ?

What I don't need is ...?
1. To be in one location , I need to move around , can't stay in one place too long.
2. a bricks n motor biz. Needs to be online to allow me to move.
3. Another Thai wife... lol

TBH ... this thread is more of a what the hell do I do .... all replies welcome.
Thank you members.

I am sure that you will find a way, take into things like grass cutting or dog walking

I haven't yet posted about this in a thread but I did mention it in a comment. I am starting up a real estate business in the UK and I am now looking for some additional money. Please don't go for your #5 idea as you can do way better things with five grand in property.

If you want, we can jump on a call and I can lay out a few ideas to you that will surely catch your attention, especially because it's so close to home.

Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

Sorry the uk is the last place I want to invest ... although I do consider property to be one of the best ways to invest here.
I see u do digital marketing and social media , that is something I'd like to be involved in but again not in the uk , but thx.

Not going to lie, this may be a tough one considering your network throughout SE Asia. I've had quite of bit of experience working in multiple avenues in Asia and being a western with money doesn't mean jack sh*t anymore like it did in the 90's and 2000s. I'm personally going to recommend investing your time and money into building a strong network, and they will show you where the true opportunities are. There are too many free photo options for you to depend on selling photos, you want to invest in something that's undervalued at the moment that is going to grow in the upcoming years. Cheap labor only holds value if you're exporting something, not sure if that's the avenue you're looking for. If you take the time and network there I'm sure the answer you're looking for will reveal itself.

lol I'm actually a male, it was set as female by error. As far as experience in Asia, my relationships I made there in college are what fuel my business now. I feel like it's the same no matter what country in Asia you're working in, strong relationships help build strong businesses. Never approach with business first, you want to build a personal relationship first and construct a business after.

I know there is a lot of photographers in SEA making bank on stock photos, so that's a possible route to pursue. Also you could do professional wedding/function photos there. Lots of opportunity in that field in SEA as well as film making.

As for the investment, it's gonna take time and resources to master any online business. If you want to learn something before you leave I highly suggest you look at building a network of SEO affiliate websites or paid traffic. Currently not doing too bad on paid traffic myself, but it's a lot of pulling and pushing to get stable ROI's.

I love my Photography and diving so who knows might be able to combine the two.
I understand it's not going to be over night , hence I am looking to start now and have 6 months start before I actually arrive in SEA.

Use your camera to capture night scenes, specially the red light districts and post the videos on YouTube. Nothing too explicit though so that you can monetize the videos. There are a bunch of channels doing it already and getting thousands of views on all their videos. Even in millions on some videos.
You can do this as a side gig and work on some other stuff as well as it will take some time for your channel to pick up.
