Due to the Russian sanctions by the US, my company was severely hit and business dropped by 80%. In an effort reduce cost, I was being let go. While obviously unhappy, I could understand the predicament the company is facing and do not hold any hard feelings for them.
I saw this as a opportunity of starting my own business which I had been shelving for sometime now. I have actively searched for business opportunities and one seem to stand out. I have been contacted by a winery and they are interested in working with me to export their wine.
I see a lot of potential in bringing their wine into South East Asia. However, the main hurdle I'm facing right now is to raise capital for the business. My intention is to open a wine restaurant in Thailand and at the same time becoming the distributor for them in South East Asia.
I am sincerely looking for funding to start my own business.
