    International Business Etiquette Essentials

    On this week's edition of Export Success, I'll be speaking with internationally-known business etiquette authority Ann Marie Sabath, founder and President of At Ease Inc.  Ann Marie has consulted with firms around the world, and is the author of numerous books on etiquette for international businesspeople.  She's travelled the world to share her knowledge and insights, and to help companies large and small avoid the kinds of cultural gaffs that can short-circuit even the best business ideas.

  • SPEAK BUSINESS- Entrepreneurs, actually...say YES!

    in Business

    When you meet new people, you can tell " who got it". It is something about Entrepreneurs that makes them be unique, they think in a different way than the rest of the population. They are THE different kind. The kind of People that decide to risk everything for a crazy idea, a mad idea that nobody can understand, at first. What makes them BELIEVE THEY CAN BE, HAVE, DO  SOMETHING DIFFERENT? Is it because they want something different or because they ARE different?


    Entrepreneurship is a way of life. What it takes to be successfull in today's market place?


    What is your story? Do you remember the hardship of starting your own business? Who was there for you when you made that decision to follow your dream? What you had to sacrifice along the way, to step up? Who helped you kick start? What is your ecosystem looking like? Do you feel resourceful in front of challenges and red type? Are you responsible for your success? Who is responsable for your failure?


    Is it really possible that the eye color of people plays a role in their fortune?


    Why the Blue- Collar Millionaires are obsessed with Blue eyes partners? 80% of millionaires who are looking for dating partners, are flexible on their partners' eye color, they would be attracted to people with blue eyes.


    ENTREPRENEURS, actually...Say Yes!


    Our Speacial guests today are from Los Angels, California, and they always believed that Entrepreneurship is in their genes. Entrepreneurship, actually, is the ecosystem where you take responsibility for, both, your success or failure.  


    What is your story? Are you an Entrepreneur at heart? What is your legacy?
