I've been reading a book called How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia (highly recommended, by the way!), and I was thinking last night about some of our members who live in countries where the cost of living is very low compared to western Europe, Australia, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, and the USA/Canada. While I'd love to hear from people in these locations, I'm especially interested in those in less developed countries. For instance, I know a number of our BST suppliers are from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc., and I'm imagining that those who are successful are making absolutely ridiculous amounts of money as a result (good on 'em!). I'm curious: how has that money changed your life? Do you help your family with it? Do you hire friends/relatives? Do you travel? I've been happily self-employed for about 4 years now, thanks to what I've learned here on BHW, but I'm more interested in other people's stories.
