On this week's Colombia Calling podcast we get to chew the fat (cockney rhyming slang for: "chat.") with long-time immigrant to Colombia and friend to the podcast, Eric Tabone. Tabone shares some of his insights into setting up a start-up here in Colombia, some of the dos and don'ts and how he ran this business successfully for 12 years before stepping aside and becoming a gentleman of leisure....although he continues to consult for businesses here! Some of his important pointers: 1. Relationships are gold. 2. Don't underestimate a good lawyer. 3. Paitience is key. 4. Culture identification is vital. 5. the Banking system is horrible.
