Quotes:

01:20 – “Both Isaac and I have doubled and even tripled our businesses by taking our existing products that we were selling in the US market and essentially just expanding those products out across the EU and the UK.” – Kirsty

15:37 – “That’s what we’d always advise is, rather than trying to do this yourself, always work with a professional (like AVASK) especially when it comes to country regulations because it can be a minefield.” – Kirsty

18:35 – “Understand the opportunity in those marketplaces first, before you just blanket go ‘Hey, I’m going to launch everything across all marketplaces.” – Kirsty

07:35 – “I’ve always said that you can’t put your eggs all in one basket, even though you’re doing well in one market.” – Melanie Shebangu

28:40 – “I’ve been using [the Pan-EU program] for about seven or eight months so far and it’s been working pretty well.” – Isaac
