Start Import/Export Business

In today's economy, an import/export business could be your ideal choice for a small business. A small company can profitably sell abroad what it markets, and goods imported from overseas can be offered for sale in the U.S. for a substantial markup. Unlike manufacturing or a storefront, an import/export business offers an inexpensive entry into owning your own business. There may even be the advantage of international travel. Students will determine what products to offer, learn where to locate suppliers and outlets for their products and will be introduced to government regulations concerning import/export.
