Diary Of A Bangkok-Based Businessperson

An entrepreneur based out of Bangkok, Thailand, writing down thoughts, ideas, challenges, and lessons learned in diary form. I travel often to other parts of Asia for business and love every bit of it.

Currently, I am a shareholder of and manage a pharmaceutical company in Bangkok with a few partners. I have tremendous respect for my partners and understand the importance of a strong win-win business relationship through the hardships of past failed ventures.

I speak Japanese fluently, and Thai and Mandarin Chinese 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, pharmaceutical, beauty & spa, food, 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 love exploring new ideas. 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 surrounds investments I make. I am by no means an investor adviser or expert 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 storytelling & communications skills.
