guy's do you have other business suggestions?

how about lending firm? kasi i remember, may nag-rerent sa amin na ganito ang business, ang they are inviting investors to invest money with them, that time syempre wala pa tayo noon  ;D, but now i can do it, i mean, pwede na akong mag-invest, un nga lang hindi ko alam kung saan sila hahanapin, dahil lumipat na sila ng place, directory? huhuhu, nakalimutan ko din ang pangalan ng kanilang lending firm...

naikwento ko lang yon dahil, i think isa pa ito sa gusto kong business, yes, it's very risky, but nakita ko naman ang sharing ng negosyo na yan, medyo maganda din...

anyone? may mga nag-ooffer ba na ganito dito?

ok...i think medyo maganda yang suggestion mo na digital printing, medyo creative nga ang wife ko.

is it expensive to start? we have a personal computer, but i think the printer that we are using right now is not capable for this. ano ba ang dapat gamitin, is there any specific printer? anu-ano ba ang dapat services ang i-market for this kind of business?

any idea guys?

thanks.

depende, since sa tingin ko me pc ka na, just be ready with a good printer, some software for digital picture manipulation...para makatipid, instead of using photoshop there are free software that can be use, search mo nalang photoscape, i use this to add efffects and sizes of my photos...

i still used my c45 na epson for this, i print photocard, photo invitation, photos from usb, cp, friendster, in 3r, 4r and wallet size. so far ok naman...hehehe..

rhina, thanks for the advice...

actually yan nga ang iniisip kong negosyo, yan foodcart, since my mother ay mahilig magluto at once na din syang nagkaroon ng restaurant biz. matagal-tagal na yon, hehehe, di pa ako pinapanganak.

may mga worries lang ako dahil hindi ko alam kung paano mag-start, i mean like, kung mag-uumpisa ako within the mall, paano ang permits? malaki ba ang rental fee? ano ba ang mga limitations ko?

sabi nga nila, malaki-laki na daw ang itong pwede kong i-invest, but syempre i'm looking for a best.

may mga options pa akong tinitignan aside from foodcart, itong internet cafe. may space kasi akong mapagtatayuan ng biz na yan, di naman sya business area, but yong volume ng tao ay maari na ding sabihing strategic area para negosyo.

kung saka-sakaling makapagstart ako this coming august, coz this is my vacation, my wife will be the one who will manage all of this.

guys, please help me and give me more ideas how i can start a new business.

maraming salamat po!

madami nang ka competition sa internet cafe. in fact nagbabaan na ang price ng rentals. tapos malaki ang budget sa maintenance ng mga pc's



Agree...

100k to 200k investment is a huge amount to waste in an internet cafe business. I myself is cafe owner and really struggling, I cant turn my back into this business, since nakatayo na eh but all i can do now is to keep moving by adding more services or other businesses where i could still use what's left of my investment.

Just keep your budget in a bank for awhile to earn interest. Business is here whenever you are ready. But it needs time to study and research whatever business you are planning into.

I dont have regrets with my current business, but I wish i could have been more wise with regards to my investment.

Agree ako dyan. Why not deposit your money sa bank like time deposit. And when the time come you are ready to come home, then that is the time to do business. A business needs a personal touch, pwedeng ipagkatiwala sa iba but again when important time decision is needed, you are not around. and I believe this is the reason OFW failed in business, akala nila pag nagtayo negosyo pwede nang tumakbo mag-isa. there should be somebody to drive the business and that is you, the entrep. Strong determination to pursue is the key to a successful business undertaking.

thanks rprondina...

you are right meron na akong pc sa bahay, the software naman i think wala namang problema. how about photo paper? magkano ang pinakamura at syempre proven na maganda din ang quality? what i'm thinking is, since nandito ako n ako sa saudi at mura naman dito ang mga electronics, i will try to scout for my printer to be use at yong mga photo papers na din. then, i will compare kung ok ba dito bumili or sa atin na lang. please give me idea sa mga pricing pati na din ang printing.

maraming salamat ulit...

TheAUDITor, maraming salamat sa post mo....

tama ka, i need to be there kung magtatayo ako ng sarili kong business...agree ako dyan!

although i'm just "young" compare sa ibang mga nag-aabroad dahil almost 5years pa lang naman ako, but what i observed with our kababayan na matagal na sa ibang bansa, they just end up nothing. pag-umuwi sa atin, ang akala mo ba ay dala na ang lahat ng pera sa pinanggalingang bansa, dahil sa nagkikinangang mga alahas, magagarang damit at naglalakihang gamit sa bahay...pero pagkaraan ng ilang linggo, gusto na nilang makabalik agad sa abroad, dahil ubos na ang kanilang ipon. Ayaw kong mangyari yon sa akin, kaya't hangga't maaga, i'm trying to study what kind of business ang maganda para sa akin, para pagdating ng araw na i need to start my own business, hindi na ako mahihirapan.

sensya na TheAUDITor, medyo mahaba ang naisulat ko, hehehe...well, gawin ko yang payo mo...

maraming salamat ulit.

aquinora...

i think investing my money in balance fund will be a good idea while i'm still outside the country...

can you tell me in layman's term what is uitf? how can i invest and how can i earn on it? i tried to search it in the internet but i cannot find anything that i can understand easily...i hope you can tell me more about it...

shukran! (thank you in arabic)  ;D

a lot of banks here in manila are offering UITF like BPI, BDO, PNB, Metrobank etc

actually it is a "trust"  between you and the bank.
parang ipagkakatiwala (kaya "trust" fund) mo muna sa kanila yung pera mo, gagamitin nila ito sa mga investment na pinag aralan mabuti ng kanilang finacial analysts (projected financial viability). yung pera mo at ng ibang investors ay pagsasama samahin. so, ang earnings/dividend ay depende sa sucess ng pinaglagyang investment.

kapag sucessful, baka in 3 mos ay mag earn ng 10 to 20 % ang pera mo minsan nga may 50% pa.
Maraming klase ng trust fund, katulad ng Banco de Oro.
meron silang Peso bond fund, Premium Growth Fund, etc, pwede kang pumili according sa risk tolerance mo. Why? kase ang mga ganitong investment ay not insured by PDIC unlike the standard time deposits.

Sa ganitong klaseng investment ay pwede rin unti unting mawala ang pera mo, dahil ito nga ay ilalagay sa ibat ibang investment. kaya dapat piliin ang pinaka magaling na bank or company sa larangan ng UITF, IPO, etc.

Nagbibigay naman ng lecture or explanation ang bank sa mga walk in investors nila.

Goodluck  :D

salamat sa magandang explaination mo straightforward...

sa tingin ko maganda nga ang ganyang investment, yon nga lang madami ding mga questions ang nasa isip ko...tulad ng, magkano ang minimum investment ang usually tinatangap nila? what if may mga emergency na kailangan mong kunin ang pera mo, papayag ba sila? since high risk nga itong ganitong investment, paano ka nakakasiguro kung ang declaration nila ay tama? i mean, sabihin nila na nalulugi at the back of their mind ay di naman pala? papaano sila nagbibigay ng earnings, by month, quarterly, bi-yearly or yearly ba? marami bang mga investors ang sumasali sa ganitong system?

pardon me with my questions medyo dumami ata...hehe...

regarding pala sa kung saan mo ise-save ang pera mo, hmm...lagay mo sa mga mutual fund muna..PHILAM daw ang best dito...pero try mo rin ang money market ng sunlife...hehehe...


regarding sa digital printing...

i used products from cdr king, either my inks are those of generic refill/branded ng cdr...ang photopaper ko is from cdr din...
