Living in Pattaya long term.
If you want to live in Thailand forever. The only way to do it is build a business and a brand.
Short term insecurity means long term security. If your business folds you didn’t adapt or pay attention to the market. And you can always make another business using your experience gained.
To start this process, surround yourself with successful business owners. Absorb their attitude, knowledge and experience.
Experience can be very expensive to learn the hardway or save alot of money by seeking advice.
