Straight from the Source:
“I was a 25-year-old account executive making $25,000 a year when I accepted my first job overseas. By the time I returned to the U.S. 10 years later, I was a vice president in one of the world’s largest consumer products companies, making more than twentyfold what I had when I left. I worked hard, played hard, learned a lot and had fun. None of it would have happened if I’d stayed in the United States.” –Perry, Coauthor

“In my three years in Asia, I grew both professionally and personally. From getting used to being the only woman in a room full of Japanese men to managing the cultural divide between myself and my Hong Kong team to managing multiple currencies, cultures and business protocols — sometimes in a single day — I faced challenges I had never encountered before. My business savvy, management skills, and stature within the company increased quickly, as did my title and salary.” –Stacie, Coauthor
