Your business is scaling.  You're getting more and more interest and orders from customers abroad.  You know you should be following up on such opportunities because it's all incremental revenue that helps your company grow.  But It's a big world out there!  Where to begin?  How do you do it?  To start, you can't do it all!  You need to focus - on just one or two countries/markets to get started.  Where you're already seeing some traction.  And/or places that we might call "low hanging fruit".  Places that are nearest Texas and the U.S. - like Mexico and Canada.  Or where the English language is prevalent to ease early business conversations - like the UK, Ireland, the Nordic region, and Australia.  And, very importantly, where there are knowledgeable resources on the ground right here in Austin and Central Texas whose job it is to answer your questions, make introductions abroad, and help you succeed in your global expansion opportunities.
