Everyone Can Compete on the New Global Playing Field

Think your business is too small for globalization?  If so, change your attitude because according to Jeremy Melis, Director of Small Business Marketing at UPS, size doesn’t matter.

“The world’s electronic commerce system has transformed retailers into e-tailers, attracting and retaining consumers around the corner and around the globe. So, brands of various sizes and scope can now compete on the new global playing field, valued at $2.3 trillion and projected to almost double by 2021,” says Jeremy.

So what’s a small business to do in order to compete?

Start small, take baby steps, and as Jeremy highlights, “Other advancements and technologies are also making it easier for small businesses to launch, manage and dominate in the world of e-commerce. The key is to understand the many options available to drive business to the next level.”

See what those resource options are by clicking here.

A quick thank you to UPS for their support to WEGG.  We could not provide the incredible educational programming at WEGG without them.

From Aspiring Actor to Founder of a Global Transportation Company: SHE Gets it Done

FromAspiringActorToFounderOfAGlobalTransportationCompany

Vietnam-born businesswoman Ms. Lily Tran grew up in an entrepreneurial family in Iowa in the United States.  She began working in her family’s retail and trading businesses when she was 14 so she knew what hard work and dedication meant to making a success of the family business. Yet, surprisingly, what Tran really wanted early on was to become an actor when she grew up.

“But I needed to pay my bills while I pursued a career on Broadway, so I took a job in sales in the freight forwarding industry. Needless to say, it was love at first career. Here I am, 17 years later in the same business.”

Tran is founder, owner and CEO of Tran Logistics, a woman-owned, minority-owned small business.  Customers include but are not limited to:  private companies in the aerospace and maritime sectors, as well as U.S. government agencies like the Department of Defense.

Trans says her company handles exports and imports, moving oversized cargo like aircraft engines, satellite equipment, heavy vehicles and equipment, as well as myriad parts and other supplies, offering service to more than 200 cities.

She’s come a long way with her talent and is using two of her greatest gifts — a combination of in-depth experience and personal service in everything she does.
