"I love speaking, educating and feeling different culture. It's fun, it's an adrenaline rush, and the best part is the satisfaction I get from being able to help business professionals attract the clients they want."
"My dream was become president when I was a kid. I decided to become sales man. My first job after graduate university, Olivetti Japan was with a nationally recognized sales training company like IBM and Xerox. I worked hard and achieved top sales. I wanted to learn the marketing strategy next. One of my customers was an excutive VP of Microsoft Japan at that time. I asked him how to succeed in business field. His answer was "establish new company". Then he gave me an opportunity to establish new company. But he didn't promise a salary. I did consider whether I do or not. I did think "I can get a lot of business technique and marketing strategy on the job training. I've experienced a lot of important procedure like developping business plan and financial plan, creating documents for investors, negotiation with investors and other stakeholders. That was everything for business. Finally we succeed at raising money 3.5 million dollars and establishing the company. (This company is DirectInternet Corporation. Please see Experience) I learned a lot from this experiences. And this company utilized innovative US technology, so I had to do every business with people from US. Then I've understood a lot of differences in Japanese business culture and US business culture. I've struggled to bridge the communication gaps between Japanese business culture and foreign business culture.
From then on, I strongly would like to contribute my experience of bridging the culture gaps to everyone. This is a story how I established my company. Again, I hope " Beare " with us!!
