Ten Tips for Starting a Business in Mexico 

By Marcia BalesAfter starting a business in Mexico and running it for 10 years, you’d think you’d be an expert, but I’m afraid I still feel like a beginner.
What follows are the lessons taken from starting a business in Mexico, and even if you don’t own a business, the information below can be of value. Most expats will find themselves as business clients or in the position of hiring a care taker at some point, and the principles are the same.

In 1539 Francisco de Ulloa was the first european to discover the Bahía de los Ángeles in what was the final expedition financed by Hernán Cortés. The area was explored again in 1746 by the Jesuit missionary Fernando Consag during his attempt to investigate the disputed question of whether or not Baja California was an island. Consag is credited with giving the area its name. In 1752 a loading dock was built to explore Mission San Borja, and the entire Baja California Peninsula.
