Default #2 Importing and exporting.

As seen in answer #1:

For me: "slop and mess". However, I did make small fortunes importing Tiger Balm and Chinese Yo-Yo's. I had made a connection in Taiwan when I was there.

OF COURSE, big fortunes are made in this arena, but, again, for a simple minded guy who can't hold a thought for more than a second or two, this is an overwhelming business of red tape, paperwork, constant contact, and, well, just "slop and mess". Why import a 100 cans of Tiger Balm to make 500 bux, when I can flip a Hobart mixer in a day for the same amuont...sans headaches. ?????????

But you? Have at it. I suggest Dien Rice might be a good contact to start with, he has the connections, and may be willing to offer some consulting if you waved enough Benjamins under his nose.

MY best advice, do due diligence, and get a handle on what the business is all about before you dive in because some guy on the Internet claims he got rich and is going to show you how to do it too.

ALL links for education purposes only, I have no affiliation and offer NO endorsements of any of them.

OK, with all the above being said,

WE very soon may have opportunities for you in the Export/Import area. Both Dien and I are beta testers of an international business program, and when it clears beta, we may have a good deal for you. Stay tuned.

But, as far as ME actually doing this? Naw. Only if I can find a new product which needs marketing and I could secure an exclusive license on it, then, go ahead and contact me, I do have some marketers looking for products.
