I hope you're all having a promising day. During the last few months I've read and heard from various reliable sources on the many profitable ventures gained by entrepreneurs exporting back to the USA or a European country, often after their vacation, that they have returned many a time to specialize in a particular (range of) products. Having planned for several months now, a few good ideas have been researched and by further networking a few extra good ideas have been added. Is it all really that simple? What primary skills do I need to develop before boarding the plane? For those with experience, which countries are 'the best' for start-ups with a near-guaranteed profit or at minimum some form of substantial gain so to cover travel costs sufficiently? What GROUP of products appeal to people so as to clear inventory fairly quickly? Glad to have found this site and I appreciate all of your helpful responses to these preliminary questions.
