Working in Taiwan, other than English teacher?

Actually I kinda suck at that. I tan so easily I've occasionally been mistaken as native American. But I digress.
I've spent a lot of time in retail, but I worry that my language inability would hinder such work prospects. I'm plenty fit enough for manual labour, but I've never found postings for such work in my months on Google.
I'm actually planning on opening my own business back home and have an idea or two that *might* work overseas, but again there's the language barrier -- how do I sell to customers I can't talk to? -- and to the best of my knowledge I wouldn't be able to own a business in Taiwan anyway. Which kinda sucks 'cause I would stay there if I could make the money.

If you've got nothing to offer there's pretty much zero chance of you working anywhere outside of your home country legally.

As for why, I've been rather obsessed with the place since my last visit. I liked it more than any of the other places I've ever been, which in Asia includes Japan and Singapore. So I figure I'll go back for Chinese lessons for a few months to find out whether I was just bored or whether it's really where I want to be. And perhaps while I'm there I can make quick hops out to some of the other countries I'd like to see.
