Do you have what it takes to make it in one of the world’s toughest, most competitive markets? If you’re British and have ambitions to start a business here in the States, this week’s #MindTheChat (Friday, July 19 at 1 pm ET) will tackle the ins-and-outs of entrepreneurship on this side of the pond. We’ll be chatting with British business owners who have successfully made the transition to the U.S., including Darren Darnborough, co-founder of Stuck For Staff, which helps to execute successful field marketing and brand experience campaigns for companies and agencies; Catherine Lyn Scott, a British publicist who launched the London Flair PR firm on both sides of the pond; and Louise Hart, founder of Steady On, which focuses on audience development for independent films, documentaries, and original web content.

Participate and ask questions using the hashtag #MindTheChat!

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
