Thanks for all the responses. Now I have some more stuff to think about, and to decide ultimately whether to take the plunge or not. I believe the market in Guatemala/Central America is very ripe for this kind of business, and it could flourish into something nice.

For those interested, I also found a very interesting article about a guy who does this for a living. You can find the article here:

On a somewhat related line, this two-part article on technical self-employment appeared in Slashdot a few days ago:

http://homepage.mac.com/monickels/techjob.html

I believe both pages give out very good tips.

I'll post when I'm starting this whole new line of work.

Thanks!

Marcos
