This is an excerpt from my May 2013 Monthly Financial Review. I thought it was worth reposting here.
A lesson in negotiation
I've been reading a lot lately, mostly business and personal development books. Here's a quote from Sebastian Marshall's Ikigai:
Tynan, I love what your doing with SETT and if there's a way I can use my passion, skill and experience to help it grow, I want to. Since you've only just opened up SETT to the first 50 people, I don't think your quite ready for this, but I wanted to throw the idea out there.
If and when you want to expand SETT beyond the English-speaking community, I want to help you. This could involve finding non-English language bloggers who want to switch their blogs to SETT or coordinating professional native-speaker translations of the SETT content.
I'm posting this in the community section instead of emailing you directly because I thought that it might provoke an interesting discussion about the business benefits of reaching out to speakers of other languages. Has anyone ever tried to expand their products or services to the non-English speaking market? If so, what results did you see?
