It’s not uncommon for online entrepreneurs to want to expand their business into different language markets. If you’ve ever thought about transitioning your business into English-speaking countries, you may be wondering what steps you need to take to successfully launch into this new marketplace. You may be thinking that a business in a different language will be more of a challenge or not as successful as sticking with your native language.
In this episode, I talk about how starting a business in English can be easier than starting one in your native language. I also discuss the importance of overcoming negative beliefs, the challenges you may face and how to overcome them, as well as the importance of surrounding yourself with other like-minded entrepreneurs to help you achieve your goals.
