Moving to Australia as PRs or employer sponsored
doesn't always mean we will be working as employees until age 60~65.
Few of us might have the burning passion
to be the boss of our own at a younger/stronger age 39~...
Any experiences/inputs/success stories so far?
Assessed Occupation: Industrial Engineer (IE 233511)
Achieved Goal: Australia PR (Permanent Resident). Thanks God!

...sharpening my core gifts now...
...working on new, better goals...

    @heyits7me_mags basta pag nasa Au na tayo let's keep in touch para kung sakali mang nasa isang lugar lang tayo e pwedeng ma-refer natin ang magiging clients natin sa isa't isa kung may service silang kailangan na kaya nyong i-provide.

    actually balak kong pag-aralin ng hair cutting si misis para sya na lang ang gugupit sa akin sa Au.haha! mahal daw haircut dun e. iniisip ko pa kung sa pinas ko sya pag-aralin o sa Au na lang kasi malaki din daw ang discount sa school pag PR ka na.parang mas OK pa nga pag sa Au na sya mag-aral para kung gawin din nyang negosyo, may maipapakita syang certificate.

    tingin ko maganda din tong negosyo para sa ating lahat.

    Malakas competition sa mga chinese business/laborer.

    Cheapest I can find is $6 haircut.
    http://yzzymae.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/boy-kuripot-tip-of-day-cheap-haircut_27.html

    Pag pinoy, nasa $25+

    In terms of quality of service, mas ok pa rin sa pinoy.

    Kung medyo maselan ka sa buhok mo at gusto mo may style - dun ka sa medyo mahal or hanap ka ng pinoy par ama xplain mo yung gusto mong gupit.

    Pero kung simpleng haircut lang or razor lang ang gamit, dun ako pumupunta sa mga chinese salon. Sign language lang ayos na buhok mo hehehe..... or dala ka ng selfie mo at ipakita mo.

    Sa umpisa medyo maninibago ka sa quality of service pero pag na compare mo naman ang price eh pwede na at kung simpleng gupit lang.

    Totally agree with all your comments, but totoo very competitive nga ang beauty industry dito. Wow hindi pa ako nakakapagpagupit ng $6, cheapest I had was $10 so far.. daming options, photography which is in na in now, beauty salon, event's coordination.. how about sa health and welness, what do you guys think?

    Cheers,
    Greg

    photography parang masyado na sumikat. Halos lahat yta nakakabili or meron na ng DSLR.

    Mahirap lang mag picture ngsarili hahaha....

    Maraming mga asian/chinese mostly into remdial massage. KAdalasan nakikita ko parang mga student. Madalas kasi may ari ng mga health massage are chinese.

    Maganda business ang health massage kasi kasama sa cover ng extra ng Private health insurance and Remedial massage> Either used your entitlement or loose it.

    Hindi ako mahilig sa mga massage pero napipilitan ako minsan claim kasi sayang since partly covered ng private health insurance.
