The business world is changing on a regular basis and small business and entrepreneurship is at the forefront. I am constantly looking for opportunities to enhance my knowledge/skills and increase the market share for Gadsden County small businesses and its citizens. That being said, I have been given the opportunity to travel to China, yes China and explore the world of global trade, global marketing, international business and general business practices. I will work with local college students, business owners and leaders to gain first-hand knowledge of successful business practices in a country that has the fastest growing major economy in the world and is the largest exporter and second-largest goods importer. I will also be able to share the endless possibilities that exist in Gadsden County.
