For most small and medium-sized business owners and chief executives, the international question looms large, in business plans, strategy sessions, and in late-night calls with anxious investors.  For some, the decision has already been made: products are now shipping overseas, and services have taken flight. New sales figures and lead volume data have either validated the decision to go global, or illustrated the need to work harder.  In some cases, the metrics may simply have confirmed fears that the time for new frontiers was not yet ripe.

No matter what the size of the business, employees are critical to an organization’s success.  This is especially true when a business wants to grow or expand. Employees help develop new products and services. Employees manufacture the goods. They provide the service. Employees can help delight a customer or destroy a relationship. So when it is time to hire, a business owner needs to be thoughtful about the right person for their organization.

Ten years ago, I took two big risks: I founded my first digital media startup company and became a volunteer firefighter. It was a difficult decision at the time. At the same time I was launching my first company, I was making a commitment to one of the most highly regarded volunteer firefighting organizations in the country. I found that becoming a firefighter helped me become a more effective CEO and disruptive entrepreneur.

It’s a fact: women in business are on the rise. We’ve all heard of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, both of whom rocketed through the glass ceiling to become household names. And those two famous females are hardly alone: women now occupy 24% of corporate senior leadership positions around the world. What’s more, 37% of worldwide entities in the formal sector are owned by women.

During my first business trip to China in 2004 I was looking for a place to take a short tour in Shanghai.  My Chinese colleague, a very classy Chinese woman, offered a recommendation, “Go to the Bund, it is where all of the young people go to make LOVE.”  Naturally, I was more than a little confused and taken aback by her suggestive advice.
