As an entrepreneur, your opportunities are defined by your imagination and ambition. Whether you choose to start a new business, or to expand an existing business by going international, you will have many options to consider. You may choose manufacturing, import/export, publishing, or telecommunications—to name a few. Given that you may be embarking on this endeavor alone or with a small team, multi-tasking is key as you will probably act simultaneously as an accountant, marketer, salesperson, purchasing agent, and travel planner. As such, a general understanding of finance, accounting, and marketing will be crucial. Research the particular business policies and processes in the countries you’re interested in.
Entrepreneurship is for you if:
You like to be in control of your work, your time, and your money
You are self-disciplined, determined and motivated
You are a risk-taker with a head for business
You have a set vision for where you would like to take your business
