Q: Anyone up for creating a business ?

I have been living in China for a few months and have been visiting a lot of factories in many cities such as Guang Zhou, Shen Zhen, He Bei, Fu Shan and so on. I think there are a lot of business opportunities and high potential of success especially for us Expat to make it come true. I have met a few expats who successfully established a business either act as a middle man or creating own brand in many products. I believe it is a great opportunity as China's economic is growing rapidly and stable. 

 

Let me know if anyone is interested so we can team up and further discuss about it.

"I know it sounds crazy, but we met over the network, teamed up for business, looked for opportunities, we had no true plan and nothing really going on besides "travel and doing business", but we worked hard a couple of years and eventually it paid off. And the guy only had been here for a couple of months, yet he just figured it out. Now I get to spend my life like most people can't. Trust me, everything can happen on the Internet, especially with total strangers in China, YOLO, go for it guys, it works!"

 

- No one, ever.

That's funny, because my definition of entrepreneurship was almost exactly the same.

 

"Entrepreneurship is in order that you spend most of your life like most people can't, that you spend a few years of your life like most people won't."

 

 

It appears that you have done your research and stolen my definition, only to reverse the structure a little bit........

You need a Chinese partner to set up a business in China, at least if you want to do it legally. Good luck finding someone trustable who doesn't expect to earn 80% of the benefits while doing 20% of the work, I did, but it was not an easy task.

I don't know if I would call myself a successful entrepreneur but I will tell you that whatever it is you are trying to do... you are doing it wrong. 

 

Better to use the inner-circle angle on this one and not open public chat rooms for finding a business partner.

Hello Robk,

 

I am not offering my business but asking if anyone is interested in creating a business together. That's how it start, people come and out in life everyday. 

 

It is a great step to share the business ideas with people who are interested instead of talking about things and gossips.

Do you have business experience?

do you have a business plan?

do you have a business idea?

do you have any money to finance a small business?

What business model/methodology do you prefer/are you familiar with?

 

what will you as an individual bring to a business?

for me, these are all basic questions i would ask anyone.

You are too late.

 

All the markets are cornered, and the established traders are struggling to find new products and new markets.

 

You won't make money selling cheap mops to Mexico, for example.  They already have cheap mops.

Brooms.  What China needs are brooms for sweeping the floor.  I don't mean those ridiculous and inefficient ones that resemble what little kids use in their cubby houses and pass as brooms in China, I mean real brooms.  Ones that enable floors to be swept properly.

If it were possible to buy one, I would.

I'm going to a meeting this afternoon where the hot topic will be how we go about setting up a business.  Everyone will be very serious and they'll talk and talk and talk and I won't understand a word of it.  After I've had enough I'll go for a beer.

The thing is, they fully expect me to cough up and throw my hat in with them.

But, to be perfectly frank, I'm pretty sure I won't.  Call me a nervous nelly, but I'm suspicious of Chinese people's motives.  And competence.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
