Here’s a question i received just the other day.
Mr Soutter, thank you for the Cash Baron secrets, very good read. However after going through it, i realised that these were universal principles and can work anywhere, my questions to is…
with everything thats happening economically and politically, why should i bother starting a business in Zimbabwe? Oscar P.
Are you asking the same question? There are alot of good answers to it, but today i’ll give you two that i dont usually give.
1) World Cup 2010 is in South Africa. Guess which is country is right next door to SA? Guess which country ‘shares’ one of the 7 wonders of the world with SA? WIth literally billions of dollarsbeing spent and to be made between now and 2010, you should be thinking seriousy about how to get in on the action. I’ll speaking more about this in weaks to come, and showing you how to take advantage of what’s happening.
2) Guess which country has had the highest/ best performning stock in the last 12 months? Whichever way you look at it, Zimbabwe’s in the top 5. Now consider the global economic problems and tell if that doesnt make Zim attractive. With Giants in USA dropping like flies, this is a great opportunity for you to diversify ‘out of the box’ and think Zim.
3) Robert Kiyosaki. I’m not big into overestimating what the ‘Gurus’ say, buy Even Rich Dad’s legend son recently confessed that Zimbabwe is where it’s at. Pay attention.
4) It’s still ridiculously cheap and to start meaningful businesses in Zimbabwe compared to other parts of the world. In a year or so, Government will start waking up to the business opportunities they control and start putting further and more dificult hurdles in your way. Dont wait. Dont procrastinate yourself out of an opportunity.
There you go, thats some food for thought. If you’re serious about getting ahead and seizing opportunities not yet flooded, then you need to ‘Think Zimbabwe’. After you’d though for a moment or two… ACT.
What other reasons can you think of to start a Zim business?
