Sell Your Products and Services Internationally – It takes a bit of luck and maintaining great relationships


I am in Latvia this week and in Russia next week training entrepreneurs and small business support experts. People often ask me: how do I get this work? So let me tell you my story. I first worked in Russia in 2001. I met Peter the head of a project in Nizhny Novgorod in 2000 at a small business development conference in Turin, Italy. He was looking for a small business expert to evaluate a project he was working on in Russia. He asked me if I would be interested in working on the project, I said yes and that’s how the relationship started. He then moved to a new project in Kaliningrad and asked me again to work with him in 2009. So it takes a little bit of luck, saying yes even when you’re not sure you can do it and maintaining relationships. The project I am working on in Latvia is through a contact I met in Belgium at another conference a few years ago. So how can you grow your business internationally and export your products and services:
