Women business owners face unique challenges as they look to exporting. But let me share a tip with you on how to overcome those challenges.
In early 2012, the State Department asked me to write an article about women energizing world economies. In it, I talk about my experience in starting and running a global business, Globetrade.com, and serving as a consultant to countless global women business owners. My key point: In order to gain self-confidence and overcome social attitudes, women need to network continuously, support each other, look for role models, update their knowledge and skills, and have a clear vision of what they wish to accomplish.
Based on my experience, there are five things that are important before you venture out in the world to do business internationally. I cover a few of them below along with offering a bunch of resources for women business owners and entrepreneurs alike who export.
