Halo pa liem, Sy lahir 27 mei 1989 jam 10:15 pagi Dan suami sy 26 februari 1990 jam 11++ siang Anak saya 31 agustus 2017 jam 9pagi Sejak menikah , keuangan kami berantakan sekali dan jadi menumpuk hutang , usaha juga turun drastis .. Suami sy bekerja seb akuntan , dan sy usaha stiker .. Sejak menikah usaha sy turun drastis .. Saya hendak memulai usaha lagi , di bidang apa cocoknya ya pa liem .. terimakasih ..
FU GUI : Usaha anda turun drastis kemungkinan karena banyak dirugikan oleh relasi atau kompetitor usaha, atau bisa juga oleh teman anda sendiri. Hindari joint usaha dengan teman, karena anda lebih baik usaha sendiri. Usaha bidang stiker tergolong usaha yg berelemen Kayu memang kurang bagus, lebih baik usaha dibidang yang berhubungan dengan Tanah atau Logam ( misalnya property, perhotelan, retail, aksesoris wanita dari logam, otomotif, alat alat rumah tangga dll ). Karir suami cukup bagus sejak 2013- 2017 namun tahun ini agak menurun, untuk usaha anda lebih mampu usaha dibandingkan suami. Semoga sukses.
