    Ok, so I am an expat in Jakarta Indonesia and I have been living in the country for almost ten years now. I also married a local. My husband and I were talking, we have been thinking of taking a step towards a well-off life since the kids are getting older and their demands getting more expensive. Axis Capital Group, http://www.axishcl.com/?ui=jobs, actually helped me but still can you suggest a good business, any advice?

    Restaurant is a good idea, after all Jakarta is flourishing in tourism you can take advantage of that. And you can never go wrong with food as they say. You’d find more options at axis human capital group

    Start with something small, you wouldn’t want to risk all your money. Then bit by bit it will be successful. It is all in the matter of how you will manage the business.

    Becoming self employed for the first time and creating a new enterprise carries a number of risks and rewards. All new businesses need support and advice to ensure that their new venture has the greatest chance of success and that any risk, identified or not is mitigated. This isn’t from me, I read it from a business website, I thought it might help.

    Many first-time entrepreneurs feel the need to jump at every "opportunity" they come across. Opportunities are often wolves in sheep's clothing. Avoid getting side-tracked. Juggling multiple ventures will spread you thin and limit both your effectiveness and productivity. Do one thing perfectly, not 10 things poorly. If you feel the need to jump onto another project, that might mean something about your original concept.
