In recent times it has become more than clear that there are advantages of having an international business; working globally is not something that is only reserved for large corporations or those with lots of money to invest.
Today, the Internet allows you to take much more advantage of the concept of globalization and reach corners of the world that you had not imagined a few years ago.
But despite this, it is quite common that most professionals do not dare to develop an international business and only limit themselves to delivering their services locally.
Are you one of them? If so, I am going to tell you what are the most important advantages that you could have if you change your mind and turn your private practice into a business beyond your borders.
Ready to meet them? Here we go.
Three (3) Advantages Of Having An International BusinessTo Offer Your Professional Services
Table of Contents
Advantage #1 – There Are No Borders In The Economy
This advantage is tremendously important if you are just starting your business and have high expectations of generating money in a short time. And it is for two fundamental reasons.
First of all, you are not restricted to the economy of your country. It may happen that your country is in an interesting cycle of economic growth that allows you to develop a business with strong prospects. But it can also happen that it is not (most of the time it is not like that, right?).
So, not limiting yourself to the economy that you may be living in your country of residence will give you a greater chance of growing quickly in your business.
On the other hand, in a complementary way, it allows you to take advantage of the flourishing economy or the latent need that may be living in other cities of the world. In itself, this is already a sufficient advantage to decide to expand your service offer to any part of the world, but let’s see other advantages that could end up convincing you.
Advantage #2 – Higher Positioning As An Expert
There is nothing better for your position as an expert than to be recognized internationally. Beyond the typical phrase, “no one is a prophet in their land” which luckily does not always apply, it is true that having the experience of working with clients anywhere in the world positions you in a totally different way. Why is this?
In the first place, cultural or communicational diversity (even in countries where we speak the same language) makes you have to be much more prepared to face the challenges of working with someone with whom you do not share other points in common.
And secondly, this same process helps you greatly accelerate the learning curve of your business or your professional practice.
Advantage #3 – Work From Anywhere In The World
This idea is great, especially when you think about maintaining a balance between your personal and professional life. Today still very few jobs in very few countries allow you the flexibility to work from home. However, with your own business and a good organization, you can do it.
But it is not limited only to this. Since you have prepared your business to offer your services anywhere in the world, you can also be anywhere in the world (something that you usually cannot do if you are used to providing local services, because they will require your physical presence).
What is the biggest benefit? Imagine being able to spend 1, 2, 3 months at your favorite vacation spot, and still be working. It is common for children at school to have many more vacations than what their parents can afford, how about taking advantage of that time to go to the beach and continue working from there?
Also, another concept that is emerging in some countries with the “slowdown” of daily life and the search for a better quality of life, is that some are leaving the large conglomerates and main cities (where the stress level reaches the highest peaks). high not only at work but also in everyday life: several hours to go to and from work, little time to have lunch or a snack, and in general to the detriment of a healthy diet, the great imbalance between work and personal activities which causes a sedentary lifestyle, more stress, anxiety and even a feeling of permanent dissatisfaction) to move to other places where they can balance their lives more.
But it is essential to have a job or a business that allows you to do it.
What do you think of these concepts that I have shared with you? Which of these advantages would make the biggest difference in your life today or in your business as you have it implemented today? What are you waiting for to evaluate having clients worldwide?
