I was speaking to my cousin the other day about how I'd like to eventually run my own business one day but was unsure of the kind of business. He's a recruitment agent and, knowing that I'd just returned from seeing friends in Italy, told me how valuable it is to have reliable and trust-worthy friends in foreign countries. He therefore suggested I do some research into setting up an imports business. I liked the idea straight away, especially given how I live in a big port city, and so started doing some research yesterday. I found this article: It sounds perfect... which makes me skeptical. Could I really make money doing this without any initial investment? Any advice appriciated. Thanks.
