Lavin and Cohan apply decades of expertise to break down the work of exporting into manageable components. The core messages of the book: (1) It is easier than you think; (2) you do need a plan. The authors offer you the tools to devise your own plan. Lavin also founded the company Export Now to help manufacturers and distributors in the United States easily reach new e-commmerce customers in China and around the world.
