To Go Global, Shift Your Perspective


With your business, are you afraid of dealing with the unknown?  Get over it.  Because to do well in the international marketplace, you have to be fearless and get on with the life of conducting worldwide business.

Sure, it has its challenges; but you can overcome them by building partnerships and strategic relationships.

Take Mrs. Evelyn Mungai (pictured), author, mother, politician and entrepreneur who is from Nairobi, Kenya (Northeastern Africa).  She was was asked, “What do you feel may have been your strongest seed of inspiration to take the leap into global entrepreneurship?”

Her answer?  “Other people’s skepticism.”

Read this fabulous interview conducted by Tasha Phelps with Mrs. Mungai which addresses several great questions, points and tips about taking a business global, including:

“What significant barriers did you face when deciding to take your business global?”

Answer (Mungai): “Money, men, doubt … Take your pick. When I decided to grow my business globally, it was skepticism that continued to confront me.  There were a lot of people who didn’t think that a woman in Kenya could – even OWN a business – let alone do business internationally. It didn’t matter, though, because I still did what I knew I could do. I sometimes wonder if I pushed harder just so that I could prove people wrong.”

Go here for the full interview.
