My travels in business have taken me to many countries, including Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, and the UAE (Dubai). I speak Japanese fluently, and Thai, Mandarin Chinese, and Korean at conversational level – skills of which has been indispensable to me and have played a vital role in understanding business culture and acquiring the necessary information to conduct business in those countries.
My business journey has taken me through many industries including finance, beauty & spa, food wholesale, outsourcing, and information technology. I see plenty of opportunity, particularly in this day and age, in bringing resources, technology, or know-how from one culture to another and will explore ideas here. I believe that maintaining a healthy body and giving back to society are also an important part of good business practice.
I also trade the US stock markets regularly and may write down any ideas or intuitive feelings I may have. I am by no means an expert investor and will not pretend to be, but am experienced enough to make a decent living trading & investing.
I am writing this as means of keeping a journal, something I have intended to do for some time now. My purpose is to help me push forward ideas, generate new ones, learn from past mistakes, and above all, improve my storytelling & communications skills.
