How to Sell to China: Advice for small businesses

On the Feb. 10, 2013 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll talk with Stanley Chao, author of Selling to China: a guide for small to midsized businesses. I have read the book, cover-to-cover and it truly is an eye-opener, and very authoritative, indeed definitive.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.
