Exporting your product or service is one indication that you are going global. Well, Small Business Administration never have stopped in supporting small business owners in our endeavor to global entrepreneurship because just earlier they announced their new offering.

The Small Business Administration is now offering Global Enterprise: A Primer on Exporting, a new online course that provides small businesses with information and guidance on exporting opportunities and international markets.

Available at the SBA Web site, the free course has a series of 30-minute training programs that allow small business owners to study at their own pace. Topics include how to identify international markets, developing an export strategy, making and receiving international payments, and finance trade operations.

The course also offers tips on determining a firm’s readiness and suitability for exporting and includes direct links to resources.

Upon completion of the course, participants receive a certificate of completion from SBA.

Interesting post. I'll have to keep it in mind, because I'd love to run my own business soon. It'll obviously be challenging, so I can use all the help I can get. I want to buy a business rather than start one from scratch. I've thought about a franchise or something home-based, but I don't know. Do you have any suggestions? Advice? Thanks.
