He takes us through a five point "reality check". I've cut and pasted below. You can read the entire post here, including comments.
- If you have first world debts, don't even think about it. Pay them off and then come back here for the next step.
- Labor in Nicaragua is close to free. If the only "skill" you have is a strong back, forget it.
- Still reading? Ok, do a skills inventory. What can you do that the average Nicaraguan can't.
- Look at your skills inventory and figure out who could afford to pay you to use those skills. Being a computer programmer that can work on-line with customers in Germany is good. Being the best person on the planet to teach English to Spanish-speaking rural farmers is not.
- Do you have the business sense to actually use your skills to make money?
