Description

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 American business men and women 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 and grow their international sales through exporting from the United States.

globalEDGE Blog - Article: Book Review: Exporters! The Wit and Wisdom of Small Businesspeople Who Sell Globally by Viktoras Puskorius, March 25, 2014

"If you are a business that is considering exporting or expanding exports, I highly recommend Exporters!.  The book assists companies in understanding and developing a strategy to take their business to the global market. The book does a great job covering a variety of different companies that offer a unique set of products and services. From reading this book, a company can generate an understanding of the great resources there are in order to begin exporting. Some of the government export assistance programs offered include the U.S. Commercial Service, Export-Import Bank, and the Department of Commerce."
