Do you have a product or service that you're presently selling to a government entity here in the U.S.? Selling to government buyers is considered by some to be a unique skill, if not an art form! Once your company is able to make a connection in this market however, it can be the source of large and consistent orders, with limited to no risk of non-payment. Despite this appealing side of the government market, the typical small business owner/manager thinks that getting their product or service to be considered by government buyers in other countries is an impossible challenge. That said, a surprising number of small and mid-sized companies here in the U.S. have done precisely that, with unbelievable results.
This week on Export Success, I’ll be speaking to Gregory Maguire, Senior Director, Legal and Government Affairs for Revision Military, based in Essex Jct., Vermont. Revision sells ballistic protective eye gear and helmets to various units of the U.S. military, and to military and security establishments around the world. Greg will talk about how Revision has promoted its products to prospective foreign government buyers, and what special factors exporters have to take into account as they start planning to enter the foreign government buyer space.
So join me on Monday, October 28, 2013 @ 3:30 pm EST to see how your company can tap into this important and growing exporting opportunity.
On the October 23, 2013 episode of Liberal Dan Radio: The simplest breakdown between the two main sides of the political spectrum is if you need more government or if you need less government. So I want to have that discussion today. Where are the places where more government intervention is needed? Where are the places where less government intervention is needed?
Many of the people who are against the Affordable Care Act believe that it is a governmental power grab. They believe that it is government run wild and that government shouldn't have a place at the table. They believe in free market solutions. Do they work? Is full government intervention the answer? I will look at Texas (of all places) to show where a good mix of government and private ownership may be able to bring a better solution.
The recent case regarding the arrest of two students after a bullied girl killed herself has also opened the discussion of if we need more or less government. Is bullying a right of passage that government has no right to interfere with? Would cracking down on bullying by making it a crime violate free speech rights? Or does the right to be kept free of harm enable he state to come down and place strict penalties for those who wish to torture and torment other people.
A campaign flyer in New Orleans was published before the last election seeking to turn voters away form voting for an openly gay candidate. Should there be stricter laws dealing with such mailers or would that also be a violation of free speech rights?
I will also look back at the Erin Cox case and check for updates.
Those issues, tweet of the week, headlines, words of redneck wisdom and more, tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.
