Often when I travel, I see products that are not sold in the U.S. but could be very useful. However, I wasn’t quite sure about how to bring those products back to the U.S. for commercial purposes. The conversation with Kelly helped me to better understand how to develop products through collaboration with small business owners in other countries.
Be open minded. Be very flexible and have a collaborative attitude.
Her advice to aspiring female entrepreneurs
- Think creatively. Know what’s out there and come up with something really unique. Do your research. Check out the marketplace so that your product won’t be redundant.
