May the Gods smile on you marinewong,
Small western buyers need 100's of genuine little home office people all over China.
Never give up your dream.
Alibaba will have a special "Due Diligence" section in about another 6 weeks. Watch out for it and maybe you can get a little start there.
Congratulations Peter on ditching your job and starting up your home office to get around those awful time differences between continents.Why not tell us all about yourself and your home office to help others ...Your city + what you do best + what you hope to accomplish in the next few years + the heartaches and joys of being your own boss in a home office + give us an example of how much $ you might charge a little western buyer to do a particular job or to do one day's work for a western buyer, or etc?(Remember many little western buyers are very "little" and they also work in their own home office and without much money)?You see, many little western people are too "frightened" to seek help in checking out Chinese suppliers / getting help with orders and etc. They are used to professional "robbers" in their own country charging a "fortune" to do a day's advisory work. This makes them shy about asking for help in China.That's a pity because good honest help is available in China for a modest fee. We need to hear more on this forum about actual costs to get help in China.If you would be good enough to post it, I don't think the little blue bird will regard your info as a Trade Lead because your story may help many people in both East and West to better understand.
