And we are pleased to be quoted (GlobeTrade) in the article as well -- thank you John for including us!

This is a great article! Small businesses seem to be on the increase as posckets of the worlds economy is coming out of recession. I started up a virtual office in London to get things going in the UK. Its the perfect way to set up a small business in another country.
