Having Business with International Clients
Some people say that success can really make your life harder than it used to be. The Peter Principle theorized by Dr Laurence Peter states that an employee will soon find himself promoted to a position for which he is not really suits if her does exceptionally well in his present position. And the reason for this is that you have done exceptionally well in your previous position since you had the capability to do it and so you can easily complete the tasks. In your new position, there is a whole new set of responsibilities which are more difficult than your previous ones. The new job may be more difficult but there are employees who can still excel in this and you will soon find them promoted to a higher level.
At some point in the hierarchy, you will be put in a position which is completely beyond your capability. You realize that the limit of your competence is only up to the last job you had. There is no demotion in corporations but sometimes people who get promoted to certain positions will soon find themselves getting less effective as compared to the positions they held before. Although this may be true, the corporation still continue to do well since there are still other employees who are still doing well in their positions and have not yet reached their level of incompetence. This happens only in a hierarchical type of organization but if you run your own business, you will not experience this kind of problems. You success if you do well and you suffer if you don’t. International business is one area where successful business owners should venture.
Meeting business people from other parts of the world is something really exciting. But, you will need to give them a good impression and make them recognize your abilities. Here are some thing you need to organize to achieve that.
Do not make your international guests take a commercial flight but rather book jet charter companies if you are asking them to come over. This sounds expensive but it is your ticket to making a good deal. And then it will not seem so expensive after all. When choosing a hotel, make sure that your choice can enhance your relationship with them instead of hinder it. When making arrangements make sure that it is something that your guests would do if they were doing it themselves and knew the place well enough.
If you have having these business guests, then at least make a research of what kind of people they are. You should remember that there are those who would like more activities and other would like more quiet.
