What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:
  • The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) launched the Indiana State Trade and Export Promotion (IN-STEP) program to develop and expand export opportunities throughout the state, assisting Indiana small businesses with identifying, marketing and selling Hoosier-made goods in international markets. 
  • According to a Small Business Trends article, small businesses are less likely to expand sales across borders (ouch ... must not be focusing on e-commerce).
  • Quote of the week: Globalization is a fact, because of technology, because of an integrated global supply chain, because of changes in transportation.  And we're not going to be able to build a wall around that." – Barack Obama
  • US is No.1 country for UK small businesses to trade with over next three years.
  • How to mitigate external risks when running a small business.
  • E-commerce trends to watch in 2020.
