Image 26/64 for "How I started my company in Japan"

In October 2013, my wife and I moved out of our 3 story house so that it could be used solely as an office - we did this so that the business could grow as much as possible. It was not only challenging to continuously have staff in our house, but also started to affect my mood being cooped up in the same house day and night.

We rented a makeshift apartment nearby which allowed wifey and I to have privacy and also meant that I could get away from work for a bit. While we did manage to get away from work and have a life outside the office, the apartment was small and cramped just like the office - I hated it.

I do understand that there are many folks who don't even have a roof over their head and feel selfish for complaining. I guess the apartment did serve as even more motivation to get out of that place.

The apartment never felt like a home at all which is why I didn't even bother trying to decorate the place. The walls were so thin that we had to wear headphones when watching TV so as not to be a nuisance to folks living next door.
