“It doesn’t matter how old you are or what your experience is. You just have to have that little inner voice that says ‘I really want to do it’ and for a woman, ‘I think I can.’” - Wendy Pease

Have you ever wondered what would be needed for you to leave corporate and become a business owner? Today’s Finding Brave guest is an expert in this topic, and I’m very excited because it’s an area we have not yet talked about in over 200 episodes of the podcast. Today, she shares how you can own a business and think global right from the start, as well as how to communicate across cultures and languages to expand your business in the process.

Wendy MacKenzie Pease is the owner and president of Rapport International, a translation and interpretation services company specializing in marketing, legal, and medical/life sciences translation. Throughout her career, she has worked with hundreds of companies to help them communicate across more than 200 languages and cultures.

Wendy has an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and a BA in Foreign Service & International Politics from Penn State. Her expertise in international relations grew from working in several international and global marketing roles and spending years living abroad.

Wendy is a frequent speaker, writer, blogger, trainer, advisor, master networker, and avid world traveler. She hosts the Global Marketing Show podcast, which features experts on opportunities and challenges in increasing multilingual lead gen and revenue.

If you think that you’re done with corporate life and you’re ready for a new adventure in business ownership, like both Wendy and I were, we’re here to tell you that you have some great options. Buying a business is something you absolutely can do, and Wendy can help you turn this dream into a reality for you.
