First off I am not advising that you do this. I previously wrote about how much money you need to move to Asia with to get started working as an English teacher.
And that was based on an ideal.
Sometimes you can't get the money together or things just aren't ideal. So let's say you get there, but you only have a little money to your name and all of your documents ready.
How can you make it work?
Well, I know you can because I have been close to broke many times in a foreign land and I still made it work.
Don't go to Reddit and r/tefl and ask this question. That forum and many of the other Reddit forums are full of pragmaticists and naysayers.
