If you’re looking at social media, you may say, “China is the biggest market.” Well, 600 million people in China never saw a toothbrush, so they don’t have a computer and they don’t have a cell phone. So knock about a billion people off of that billion and a half population. Now we have about 500 million people. Market size is what Americans often go with, but there are other things like product adaptability, and whether or not there are a mix and a com- plement of cultures. And do our executives even want to go to these markets (because it’s going to take a lot of time)? How is the American stigma perceived?
Are we loved, are we hated? All of these kinds of factors—and I’ve come up with about 70 of them go into a matrix, so we can actually grade a country and an opportunity, one versus another. This type of market research isn’t as hard as it seems….see it at the market entry toolkit found here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/93616 .

And some of you say…have a heart…
Cardiovascular scientists have announced that it will be possible to 3D print a whole heart from the patients’ own cells within a decade. A bioengineer has been quoted saying that the heart is one of the easiest organs to bioprint. In fact, scientists have already bioengineered a coronary artery and printed the smallest blood vessels in the heart used in microcirculation.
“For bioprinting it is the end of the beginning as bioprinted structures are now under intense study by biologists.”
Does this mean no heart attacks?

3 Bad International Business Strategies. Here is a one minute video on common but bad international business plans.
Businesses study countries and their markets as they ponder which international markets to enter.
They often ask such questions as:
• How big is the market?
• What is our market niche?
• How do we reach our target market?
• What will our brand look like?
• How will we manage our partners and channels?
And will international business methods differ?
