Felix, or no Felix? That is the Question.

I hope all of you had a terrific holiday season and once again would like to wish everyone health, happiness and prosperity in 2014.  We have a very exciting and event-filled year planned, so over the next couple weeks you will be seeing a number of announcements on the pages of this publication.  Today, I would like to kick off the year by announcing an upcoming release of the completely updated and revised Fluent In Foreign Business™ book.

The new edition sub-titled “A Candid and Practical Guide on how to Grow Your Company by Expanding into Foreign Markets”, will include the 2015 Emerging Markets: KeysToAmerica™ Challenge, as well as additional chapters on Financing Exports and Projects, Franchising Abroad, Picking Most Promising Markets, Risk Mitigation, and new stories about author’s own international business adventures. The new edition of the book is scheduled for worldwide release on March 18th of this year. Those wishing to reserve a signed limited edition hard cover version, please register below.

Meanwhile we at Fluent In Foreign have a very serious question to all of you:). Should our beloved Global Felix™ be included in the second edition? Some folks who read the book said that having Felix illustrations included detracts from the serious nature of the book, others love the jovial character who makes difficult issues and complex subjects easier to deal with.  Here are some Felix illustrations from the book, each illustrates the main issue of a corresponding chapter. Let us know your opinion, on whether we should include Global Felix in the new edition of the Fluent In Foreign Business?Thank you and all the best in 2014!
