Companies such as Coca Cola, Ford, and Apple have all made the attempt at expanding their businesses overseas, and all of which have been successful. Some companies that have not succeeded have tried to expand too quickly and their expanisions do not turn out as successful. Before you consider bringing your business to different parts of the world, there are a few questions to ask yourself. First, ask yourself if your business is strong enough in the location you have it now. Is the sole purpose of moving overseas to attract more consumers or was the first location not successful and you are hoping for it to be a hit in a different part of the world?

Planning ahead and considering all financial issues is essential when considering a move as large as opening a new location.
