My first job after college was with an international shipping company. I later started my own business manufacturing industrial products and began exporting them to Asia/Pacific countries, including China, in 1978.
I sold that business in 1987 and began importing, selling B2B. Business boomed and after I had employed all my family I expanded by franchising the business. By the time I retired I had franchises operating in 4 countries.
Heart surgery forced me to sell that business and retire, but I can't make my brain slow down, so I wrote my eBook on safe sourcing and easy importing. I revise it twice a year and I enjoy teaching through my book the hundreds of entrepreneurs in 35 countries who are now using it.
