This business would provide career development / human-resources strategies for local businesses in countries like Brazil. I exchange for that information, the local businesses would provide me market research information / direct client contacts which would help to expand my business in the region.
Thank you very much for your informative reply!
One additional question: Since part of the work will be executed in places like Brazil, would you recommend that I link up with a local attorney, or a specific kind of business entity, in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly, especially if I wind up paying the local company for their services in monetarily, as opposed to continuing the pure exchange of services?
