Expat business owners in Vietnam - If you could start over...

..what would you do differently?

So far, I'm realizing the importance of translators and not taking things literally, at face value.

I'd learn to be better at lying and cheating.

OMG!!   ..so that's why I'm doing so well..?      :blink:

Depends if you are dealing with locals or foreigners.....

Is it a truth or are you trying to entertain people? :)

MM?   ..Much More...   ..of Me, my Mere Meo...

My Mysogynistic Mistakes aside, you might well be Mighty Mouse...

..but having been hauled over the coals for (constantly) being   :offtopic:

..it seems my true nature will never be known...    But that's Ok.

True Intelligence would want Power over none - but itself.

And (sadly?) values often have two faces...       :nothappy:       :idontagree:

The enigmatic Bazza!

Sounds like you were given short end of stick too many times or are you being facetious?

Just being honest. As a manager have had to listen to BS that sometimes almost defied categorisation - and the categories range from simple fibs, through outright fantasy, to utter lies. It took me a few months to learn to  look at EVERYTHING with a jaundiced eye.

Example - to contractor - "you are missing out large chunks of the seismic lines in your search for bombs" contractor answers  - "yeah but don't worry, there is nothing there". "how do you know?" ... "We just know"
