I'm new here and I'm young. The money I am going to be investing with is entirely my own. I know I will get some questions regarding how I made my money I'd just like to say that it was made through a couple small businesses I am running. The business I want to start is a kitchen renovation business specializing in custom cabinetry. I live in the states, but this business will physically operate in a South American country. I am incapable of staying in South America and looking after this business, as a result I will leave the business in the hands of a trusted craftsmen who will be in charge of making sure all the orders are made to standard. I will have a 100% ownership in this business as I will be the sole investor, profits will be split 65%/35% over the first year or until I make my investment back. I will be receiving the 65%. Once I get a return on my investment profits will be split 50/50. The craftsmen and I have agreed on the above terms, I need advice on whether or not the above seems like a good idea from a return on my investment viewpoint, I am not in need of help on how to execute the business or how to source materials, workers, and good locations; I am fine in that area. I'd also need to know the risks of not being involved in the business since I will not be there. The business partner has been in my family for 15+ years and we are very confident in the quality of his work, I will visit this country every 6 months to check up on how things are going and I will regularly speak with relatives and my business partner. I will set up a bank account in this country with online banking to monitor profits. Would it be a safe bet to set up security cameras at these workplaces or would it be considered a negative sign of trust. I know this is a lot to ask for especially for being a newb on this forum; but I'd like to know what I'm getting into. I am especially seeking guidance from investors that are in similar situations, but not limited to the same line of business. Thank you in advance.
