My friend’s dad, Bob, owns a small company in Dallas. He works out of a nicely decorated warehouse/office. Inside this office there are some empty offices and cubicles. Inside the warehouse is warehouse space, friendly employees, forklifts and other equipment, and an elevated loading dock.
I’ve found that if I conduct business at this location, and I don’t get in Bob’s way, I can generally get away with it. Bob doesn’t stop me, he doesn’t help me either, but he doesn’t stop me. So I set up shop in Bob’s building.
It is possible to buy copper transformers for a price in the US, and to sell them for a higher price in either China or Hong Kong. This was my first truly international business, scrap recycling, I’ve been doing it for three years and it is the way I fund Xingergy. Finding, shipping, dismantling and especially importing into China, scrap is difficult, complicated, drawn out, and risky. But I do it because if I don’t, my Xingergy company will fail, I will fail.
