The U.S. is the world’s largest exporter of products and services, but a comparatively small percentage of businesses actually do it.  The business owners who export find it lucrative, educational, and endlessly fascinating as their work brings them into close contact with people and cultures worldwide.  This book profiles 25 Americans who battled competitors, fear of the unknown, and personal adversity to build successful small businesses in the global marketplace. Alternately humorous, amazing and inspirational, their stories also serve as valuable advice for readers wanting to follow their example.
