TORONTO, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - Doing business abroad isn't just for big
business. The new edition of Report on Small Business magazine arrives today
with a special report on how small Canadian companies can be and are
successful operating abroad and what we can learn from their trial-and-error
experiences in countries like China, India, the U.K., France, Chile and the
U.S. In this "Rough Guide" for small businesses, noted global competitiveness
expert Andrea Mandel-Campbell profiles nine Canadian entrepreneurs who have
found their way in the world. From selling spring water in France to weighing
trucks in Chile and leading reforestation in China, Canadian entrepreneurs
prove they have a whole lot to offer to the world.
The November issue of Report on Small Business magazine also features:
- The cream rises to the top: Business tips from Halifax entrepreneur
Michael Duck - one of the most famous - and outrageous -
entrepreneurs in Nova Scotia. Duck's simple cream dispenser, which he
invented in 1985 has made him a Maserati-driving multimillionaire.
- How to replace yourself: Sometimes, getting a demotion - even giving
one to yourself - is a step in the right direction. The founders of
Toronto advertising agency Zig speak from experience as they share
the details of the unorthodox transition.
