Hello,
My wife and I are considering relocating in the next year. Currently I have a computer/cell phone repair business and refurbish computers and cell phones for resale. Is this type of business something that there would be a call for on any one of the islands ? Trying to decide if a career change would be a requirement for relocation. I would appreciate any input.

Thank-You
John in Maine

If you are good at it you can make yourself indispensable doing that work in STT.

At least one person markets his services on What's Going on St Thomas facebook page. Lots of posts asking for recommendations on fixing broken screens.

There are always opportunities for new businesses to flourish especially if you're a good marketer and can sell yourself and your services effectively.

Our extremely crappy power utility (WAPA) and the corrosive environment should make your business very profitable replacing power supplies and the like.
