Every person should be entitled to certain rights. Water, food, and electricity are things we take for granted. We turn on our faucets to watch water come out. The United States has less than five percent of the world’s population but enjoys seventy five percent of its resources. The United States Market has the luxury of resources. We also enjoy access to liquidity that is scarce. I talk a lot about countries I have worked in.
I currently count twenty nine.
I hope to add one more by the close of this quarter. The opportunities that exist in foreign markets cannot be understated. As a Professional Entrepreneur it is imperative you recognize markets outside your backyard. A million dollars in the country of Kenya has a completely different premium than the state of Florida.
Do not be culturally close minded in searching for your next venture.
Government support is open in countries that need basic enterprise. Knowing stakeholder perception is important. The United States has a perception as a financial leader. Professional Entrepreneurs from the United States can negotiate very profitable deals. Good professionals find the best opportunities they can find. Market cycles that downturn in local markets create opportunities for growth in foreign markets.
News outlets create false impressions foreign opportunities are scam prone. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Ugly Truth about Scams
Three South Florida Call centers were recently charged in a billion dollar Medicare scam. The Justice department announced this month that telemedicine firms and medical equipment companies shipped unneeded back, shoulder, wrist and knee braces. Investor loss stands to be substantial. The most complicated scams are typically committed in the United States. The US Federal Trade Commission reported that of the 1.1 million people who reported fraud 46% went to tax fraud and 23% went to identity theft. 79% of the scams were US based transactions. The individuals committing these acts overwhelming reside inside the United States. Routing to overseas call centers is typically masterminded by US Citizens.
Lowering Risk & Maximizing Profit
Overseas gets bad reporting in the media. I have discovered the most profitable ventures involve working with foreign governments to provide basic business needs. Make sure water turns on in a major city and see what they pay you. You will be surprised the cost benefit analysis. Professional Entrepreneurs go where markets make opportunities. Never overlook an opportunity due to location. Unattractive private deals in US Markets can become sought after Public-Private deals in foreign markets. Foreign government backing changes risk profile. Anytime you involve a government the risk goes down. Making more money with less risk is the definition of financial prudence. Find a way to be prudent. Find a way to have a broader horizon. Find a way to value foreign markets.
