    If you want your business to remain competitive, consider the opportunities for increased production efficiency and a wider reach by doing business beyond the United States. Going global allows you to tap into a marketplace of more than 7 billion people and enjoy additional advantages that lead to business growth.

    First of all, what does “being global,” mean? 

    Being global is having an international outlook, an awareness of other nations beyond your own borders and the opportunities, which lie therein. Furthermore, it is appreciating that our worlds no longer cease at geographical borders and rather gel seamlessly into one another. Our lives are too short to put restrictions on our ability to enjoy and reap the countless benefits from all that are out there by confining ourselves to outdated and artificial boundaries. When there exists such a depth and breadth of potential opportunities and experiences, it is absurd not to grasp them with both hands. We are more connected than ever before thanks to advancements in communications technology, speed and ease of travel between nations, the reduction and removal of trade barriers and the growth of the Internet. This has all, in turn; contributed to a greater recognition that being internationally aware can add so much more to our lives.

    So why should I be global?

    In short because it will change your life. Having international exposure can, should and almost certainly will change the direction of your future - for the better.

    How does this translate to my business?

    As an Executive Director of Global Chamber Denver, I am part of an organization, which represents and supports the interests of businesses not just nationally but anywhere they want to operate. One of our key functions is to support and help businesses realize their ambitions to become an international trader. Whether it comes from international market insight or simply putting you in front of the right people, the Global Chamber can provide you and your business with everything you need to turn your ambitions into international trading realities.

    There is no question about it, having an ambition to become global and actually following through with it are two very different entities. Leaving your comfort zone to begin trading in a market on the other side of the world must seem daunting. The risks and challenges involved are undoubtedly greater. However, there are countless success stories of organizations that have done just this.

    Final points

    Through being brave and becoming global, you can become bigger, better and bolder. You can grow and you can learn things about yourself and your organization that you never really knew before. Take this chance to expand your horizons and explore the countless opportunities and challenges that are waiting; opportunities and challenges that will test you, amaze you but ultimately, make you.

    So…. what’s stopping you?
