I was just chatting with my sister over at yahoo messenger when the thought of putting up a business in Manila came up. This topic has been discussed on and off for years and who knows when it will materialize. The main driver for us is to achieve freedom, from corporate slavery that is. Not everyone wants to be employed forever. Then we brainstormed ideas like food franchise, internet businesses or a small coffee shop.
What makes this difficult for us is the current economic situation. There are a lot of businesses that folded up and many would prefer to hold on to their monies until the economy rebounds. The decision to go ahead with setting up a business requires a lot of thinking and praying. But I’m hoping that this time around, something solid comes out of our discussions.
