While the US is a huge market in itself, two-thirds of the world’s purchasing power exists offshore in foreign countries. This represents a big opportunity for small businesses to expand and grow. But, as with all growth strategies, knowing when to make that leap into new markets isn’t quite so easy, especially when faced with the unknowns of cross-border selling and a potential maze of regulations.

That being said, there are certain signs and characteristics that indicate that a business is ready to export. Let’s take a look:

Can You Make the Commitment?

Any expansion strategy requires that all stakeholders are on-board and are clear about the level...

Last week, international experts on disaster reduction met in Geneva to develop a new global framework to make the world more resilient to increasing natural disasters.

The bill would unnecessarily divert valuable staff and financial resources from this effort and would also impose additional unbudgeted costs, he said in a message accompanying the veto Friday night.

Cuomo also vetoed legislation to provide veterans with health information about service-related post-traumatic stress disorder and brain injuries. The bill would also require annual reports on veterans in jails and prison. The governor said it would impose the reporting on state corrections officials, who have no authority over local jails, and given the transient jail populations it wouldnt provide substantive data.
