Anita -- My apologies! What's even stranger yet is this podcast is featured EVERY SINGLE MONTH in our Borderbuster e-newsletter! What was I thinking?

Hi Laurel,

Thank you for linking to both the UPS home page and the UPS Global Advisor page. We agree that the links can help businesses “Go Global”. We also wanted to remind you of UPS’s free Snapshots for Small Businesses. The snapshots are designed to educate American small businesses on the benefits of pursuing export opportunities in other countries including: Brazil, China, Canada, India, Mexico, Poland and Vietnam. The non-commercial snapshots contain an overview of a country’s etiquette tips, cultural insights, questions to ask prospective shippers, lessons learned from an American business already in-market and much more. Please let us know if you or any of your readers have questions about the Snapshots for Small Businesses.
