This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.
I know there are many teachers among us. A bar owner or two. Probably some NGOers as well. But it's apparent that others have found a variety of ways to make a living in Cambodia. Several internet entrepreneurs, for example.

Okay. I don't earn my money in Cambodia. I do contract engineering work for the international division of a large US construction company. Just no projects in places I want to live so far. I do get quite a bit of time off on a rotating work schedule, which I almost always spend in this part of the world. If I was smart enough to figure out how to make some money in SE Asia, I would do so. I have no interest in teaching. I'm looking for some new ideas.
To play along:
I do, as has been stated before elsewhere, contract software and web development work. Generally via telecommute, but occasionally for local clients as well. I have also developed an e-commerce solution which, with a few more bugs worked out, will be ready for market locally at a quite low price and allowing both credit card payments and Wing payments as checkout options. For additional fees it can also (potentially) be integrated into an existing point of sale system... the fee and even possibility will of course depend on the point of sale software being used by the customer, but I'm pretty good at making things that were never designed to play with others do it anyway.
