Ellen helps you find the place back to balance: your work and your values can peacefully co-exist, even better, your values can help you focus your business.

Irish SME Owners…Introductory Post About Growing in US

Sometimes synchronicity is there for inspiration! Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Stuart Allcock of Applied Business Support (he is based in Ireland) and arranging with him to exchange posts. At the same time, I began working with an Irish SME who is ready to expand actively in the US. Knowing the kinds of details that just seem to pile up as a company seeks a physical presence here in the US, it made sense to write an introductory post. Sure…you know you are looking for customers but what else do you need to do at the same time?

Here is the link to my post on Stuart’s website: Keys To Growing Your Business In the US – Where To Start

(While the post is written for Irish SME owners and executives, the information is certainly appropriate for other SME’s from around the world. )

If you missed it, check out Stuart’s post about exporting to the EU: Starting Exporting To Europe – Planning It Out

As always…if you have questions about expanding here in the US, please take a look at my services page,  Expanding In the US and let’s talk. All initial consultations are complimentary as it is my intention to make your expansion here as smooth as possible.

Managing Out Of a CrisisOne story in particular caught my eye…

The Minister of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD and the Minister of  State for Small Business John Perry TD announced that a guide titled, Managing Out of a Crisis. This guide is supposed to be something that struggling small business owners could use immediately. With the news remaining grim, it can feel overwhelming or even paralyzing trying to keep things going.
