I am an entrepreneur and I am not ashamed. I like to make money and I like to do good, and when I can do both simultaneously, I am at my happiest – so Cuba presents a conundrum. How could someone like me (a business person) live and thrive in Cuba?
- Someone like me (a foreigner) has not right to stay in Cuba beyond the terms of the tourist visa or temporary residency granted because of one’s work.
- If someone like me was looking for a more permanent solution…then (easiest solution) it would be time to get married to a Cuban…..and Miguel was good looking, but he wasn’tthat good looking!
- Most private enterprise is limited to small service businesses – selling food/restaurants, taxis, hairdressers (of course), renting rooms in homes, etc. The services I get paid to render in the US are non-existent in Cuba…because they are free.
So unless I plan on being a black market business chick….which (for the record) I do not….making money in Cuba remains an elusive concept to me.
How do you make money in Cuba? If you have some ideas, I would love to hear them.
