In Latin America one has to invent something to make money, it is not like the USA where one can just go work for a company, although the USA is changing fast in the direction of the Latin American experience.
What are you good at?
Well that’s the thing, I’m not sure yet what I’m good at in order to turn it into a business or such, that’s what I’ve been trying to figure out lately.
For now I work online and am looking to get another online job because the one I am at right now will end June 30th. I’ve been asking about the savings account situation in this country and it turns out it’s nothing like the USA, where you can get a 10-12% average return, over here it’s like 2% at the most, which is nothing.
I’ve been thinking about getting a teaching certification because it turns out that online teaching pays very well, that’s what I’m doing right now but I could make even more if I had a certification.
The other thing I’ve thought about is small scale farming but that’s also not that good over here, in the USA you could make more than $80,000 a year with micro farming because things sell for a whole lot more there, but here they don’t sell for much, so it would have to be something special that you know will sell for a lot over here and that people will actually buy.
I’ve also thought about setting up a bakery because that actually can be a good business here, but I need to save up to get a good quality oven and other things.
