How do you earn a living in Cambodia?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Most of my income comes from Google Adsense and is somewhat passive.

One advantage is I can go anywhere, when I get tired of Cambodia I go live in another country for a few months... lately I've been thinking about going to Malaysia for 3 months.

A massive disadvantage is it's quite solitary work.
Sounds like you've got things figured out. Good for you! I don't even know what online publishing is.
:oops: Sounds like pornography. :shock:

I guess that means you are a writer? What kind of content?

I've been kicking around in various areas of construction/engineering management for ages. I was hoping to find something different. I have an idea for a small business, but am worried about financial failure at this point, and losing the savings I now have. I just don't want to start all over again at this stage of life if the business went tits up and took my investment money with it. I am almost at a point where I can retire and live (modestly) off dividends and investments, decades before the standard retirement age.

I work online in sales, but in the mainstream Entertainment Industry. Low-level, but in Cambodia even that pay is quite substantial.

Strangely, we're starting to move into Aussie government training program, it's almost like working on the dole, it's like free money of you do the right things, haha.

I have the freedom to roam as well, and I have a small team of 5 to work with online. Fun work, at times, occasionally real work, but it's a fun and profitable hunt and challenge to me. :)

It's almost like online fishing, and a license to fish in the giant pond of Australia! Sometimes I can land a big one! (We have differing products, some with much bigger commissions! ;)

I'm a writer with a programming background. My main source of income comes from a website that teaches people about music... though that site is looking old now (it still makes money), but I need to find a new subject. Something I've been struggling with for quite some time.

My Khmer teacher wants me to help him make a "Learn Khmer" website, so I am actually considering that, even though I doubt it would make much, it might help speak Khmer better.

I've become independently wealthy by preying on the misery of others.
