Get the Guide
Dear Clients & Friends of SH International:
We used to be more secretive about how we achieved powerful results for our clients seeking to establish new global sales and distribution channels. Then we realized that no matter how much information we share, it will not come close to the impact of having us deliver specific insights or implement hands-on solutions for your company.
So we have prepared a complimentary guide giving you a general overview of the process that we follow, as well as relevant pointers. We welcome feedback as well as requests for more information on how we would implement this process for your company.
Limiting Frustrations
Overcoming Obstacles to Global Growth
We love working with fast-growing, entrepreneurial companies. These companies are not afraid to break the status quo and challenge mainstream assumptions. By doing so, they realize aggressive global expansion plans which more stodgy companies dismiss as fantasy.
If your company leadership lacks courage, borrow some from us. We embolden and enable our clients to realize their global growth objectives.

Courage can be difficult in the face of frustrations. Besides having the right business foundations in place - contracts, protections, and relationships - here are a few tips for keeping your spirits strong:
Surround yourself with others who are equally ambitious. When realizing ambitious goals, if it seems like the world thinks you are crazy, something is in fact seriously wrong. Sometimes it is the goal, but often it is the people that you surround yourself with. Join circles of other globally ambitious company executives, and benefit not only from a jolt of courage but also from increased access to resources to move your company forward.

Diversify your international interests. Realistically, not every new venture will be successful. Be pragmatic and invest in more than one strategic initiative. If you over-focus on one, you may cause more damage through impatience and worry than if you have more than one chance at global expansion success.
Celebrate short-term wins. Whether receiving government approvals, sending a particularly large shipment, or putting together a series of meetings with high-level potential partners, celebrate it. It is too long of a journey to not have a party or two along the way. Be sure to send us an invitation.
Lean on us. If you would rather focus on your core business, then leave the global expansion responsibilities to us and engage us on an implementation service. We will check in with you every step of the way to make sure that we are implementing in accordance to your company’s vision and preferences. Of course, if you would rather do the heavy lifting yourself, our On-Call Advisory Services make sure that you get the insights and guidance you need, when you need it.

We expand businesses through global deals, ventures and initiatives. We leverage a proprietary network of resources, specialists and partnerships to achieve powerful results for fast growing consumer-driven businesses.

We specialize in enabling our clients to tap into emerging markets opportunities. Half of global commerce is now conducted with emerging markets. Harnessing the rapid growth of these markets is critical for your company to remain viable, relevant, and successful in today's world.
