“I began my painting business for motorcycles while I was enrolled in a high school. Later, when I got admitted into a university, I opted to work in a venture organization while continuing my education. I worked in that firm for about two years and learned significantly from it. Eventually, I used the knowledge I learned and the experience I earned to set up my store in Saitama prefecture.
I began work hunting in my third year of university and interned at multiple organizations. However, I was never really satisfied since I could not discover the companies I wanted to join. Although I was employed as an assistant in these organizations, I felt like I wasn’t learning enough. I felt restricted around them.
This actually struck me, and that is the point where I asked myself why am I looking for an organization, why am I not setting up one on my own?
This began my life as a businessman. It was literally the best decision I ever took. It groomed me physically as well as intellectually. The sole purpose of this business was to eliminate waste and magnify productivity, both domestically and internationally.
Subsequently, currently, I am aiming to make some pivotal contributions in the world. I am working to lay down the basis of a society where worth and data stream more reasonably.”
What were some of the major obstacles you had to overcome while building your businesses?
“For my situation, I felt a significant hindrance with regards to developing myself for the business I initiated. When I was a student, I had some experience regarding sales and stuff, but I had no other critical vocation experiences.
I firmly believe that we live in a time where the key to enlightening our future is getting ourselves involved in internet-related fields such as IT, or Social Media. For my situation, since I didn’t have such a profession, I was in a dire need to study, learn and get myself adapted to the industry I chose, to make myself capable enough to lead the company.
