The New Globetrotters: Women

The New Globetrotters is a research paper I wrote six years ago and is still relevant to today’s women entrepreneurs who are navigating their businesses in the global marketplace.


Both the number of female-owned businesses and the level of international trade continues to increase on a global scale.  An overview of the literature and statistics regarding the increase in female entrepreneurship and in internationalization are presented.

The benefits of internationalizing are discussed. The twelve keys to creating an international entrepreneurial mindset are outlined. Some of the keys to developing a global orientation to entrepreneurship include but are not limited to:  comfort with change; a willingness to learn about other cultures; passion and enthusiasm; experience traveling to at least one foreign country; and an all-encompassing perspective.

The factors to consider when choosing a market for expansion are examined. Finally, the author suggests ten action-oriented business philosophies that have aided her in her experiences as an international entrepreneur.  Included in this list are the following suggestions:  research and map out your export journey; know your goals and strive for them; trust your instincts; and make personal contact with consideration and professionalism.

The entire research paper can be found here; go to Page 58.

And visit Amazon for information on the book, “Handbook of Research On International Entrepreneurship,” where this research paper is published.
