*News: This is a great time to let you know that the entire year I’ve been writing a new book on exporting to be published by Apress December 2013. The book will equip you with the knowledge you need to market, sell, and fulfill orders internationally, taking full advantage of the Internet and the opportunities it creates. It also imparts a can-do spirit on exporting, leading to greater revenues, stability, and profitability for your business. I can’t wait for you to read it! Watch for more coming soon!
