What are the challenges of running business in Singapore
« on: January 17, 2019, 05:29:17 pm »
What are the biggest challenge of running a small business in Singapore?

Beside our small local size, there are other challenges maybe other business owners can share.

For one, the lack of support from Singaporeans. I find Singaporeans feels that if this product is overseas, it stands for higher quality.
If its Singapore.. ahem, can trust or not?

LOL
Every small business owner needs to be the accountant/salesman/operating manager/cleaner/etc etc...
tiring

-Missing parcels from singpost.. this one beyond anyone's crtl haha
-Not really lack of support from Singaporeans actually majority of ppl who buy have foreign names I think it doesn't really matter which nationality support lol.
-Haggling from locals sometimes

Yeah tired but fun.

Actually ur right made in Singapore kinda less quality based on experience of buying.

Coz overseas got machines for mass production with few years experience production line worker, their monthly volume might be 5 digit number of transaction that's y they already know which exact materials work, how to calibrate the machine, how to maintain and upkeep the machine and skilled technicians too. This local won't be able to fight.
Like I buy some $30 bucks local handmade charm, it burst open and spill in 2months... while the $3 one from overseas can chuck everywhere but can't be damaged lol.
