I used to be US based, and now I am sitting in good old central america. My wife's family is from here, yada yada yada, my business has gone down online because I cannot use paypal here, and my own paypal in the US is tied to my bank that unfortunately does not do business with this country. Long drawn out story short, I still make an income online, Just cannot seem to get the money, accept through to much BS and it is easier to do two things: 1. go home (not an option, my wife's father is old and she wants to be here for the next six months, if not move here) 2. get someone with verified paypal in US to accept payments from me, western union it to me, and make some money doing it. All of my money comes from my eBay sales. That is it. I am starting to do a few other things, but mostly it is all eBay. In the end this situation is pissing me off. Though this country is great, a gallon of milk is less than a dollar, I eat 3 fully prepared meals a day for less than 3 dollars. And the real estate opportunities are endless. Beach front property, 60 acres, undeveloped, $15,000. OMG that is a gold mine. They build great houses here for $8,000 and then resell to americans (on the beach and in little communities) for no less than $80,000 an acre. Think of the profit there. By the way, for those in the US that want a damn good business idea, buy refurbished laptops (50 for $80 a piece from vantage point asset solutions in oklahoma city, oklahoma) and resell here for $200. I can own 85% of market share here and sell all 50 in one week. I just do not have the savings right now to pull this off. Wish I had investors, this would make a shit load of money. All offline of course.
