having a team that can help you manage your work
Please to be create hairpiece for intelligence doll of colour brown shiny. Ordering numbers 1000 items by month 5 of following year. Confirmation please doing.
Danny you're such a creative thinker, I'm sure you'll improve everything somehow.
Google Translate...lol Most of these translation sites and even some programs cannot successfully translate any of the idiosyncrasies of most languages, especially when translating some of the harder languages like Japanese into English and I'm sure, Korean to English is just as bad lol
So yeah, networking is going to be much harder with a language barrier limiting potential business growth in foreign markets. And as an entrepreneur like yourself fully know these markets can provide a huge potential for business and cannot be ignored.
Join you when i have the chance ... ;)
Well I read a lot about business owners because when I grow up I want to be one.. #Humor But some trends I've noticed with certain business is they remain a certain size so they can keep things in perspective and they just work on cashflow... and quality. They literally choose to remain a certain size instead of just getting "bigger and bigger" So that is always an option.
Networking is the most powerful marketing key to sustain success the operation of company, but also be more challenging than ever. ganbatte Danny-san!!
don't get an m.b.a, it stands for Masters at Being ssholes
You should do a job opening position on your website and list down the qualifications. This would help build interest and im one of them
There really is a small talent pool for people who would fit the role of an Operations Officer. It's always a toss-up between hiring internally and grow talent in-house, or hire someone externally but would take the time to appreciate what the business is all about...
I feel you man, and it never is easy building a dream. Here's to keeping the dream alive! XD

Sociologist, in Tokyo on a WH visa, would be glad to be of help =)
Need help? Call 999 for further help
He should make Elf ears in all colours as an option part... I wasn't too interested in the dark skin although It's a "Smart" move ^_-, But I didn't think of the Drow/Dark Elf angle... Now I'm like.. Hmmmmm....
Would you employ someone from the UK or is this only for Japanese residents?
Is fluent Japanese required?
Thank you :)
<<=== management . Owner/manager . BJD collector.. Artist ... Need a job in Japan !!
As my team continues to grow, the thing I struggle with the most is managing so many people. We have a great team of folks with ninja execution skills but I currently lack folks with people management skills.
Ideally I would have somebody who can run operations while I work on growing the business - it continues to be challenging doing both.
Networking has been key to building the company but I have not been doing as much as I should what with the hands-on production. I have been delegating as much work as possible but there are still some things I need to handle - for example I'm the only one who can speak Korean in the company which I use to work with some of our vendors who work on our apparel and wigs - Google Translate just does not cut it ^^
@shaniaassyiffa ingat yg ini dek?
@neverxxmind cute doll
We love the skin tone. When I was a young thespian makeup artist had it tough matching our skin tone. You struggle reminds me of that time and I pray you will make us proud with your production choices. Wabi Sabi and the state of shibumi will guide your hand. Harmony will balance out perfectly.
Great post Danny! Thanks for sharing!
I'm amazed that the E-GO has regenerative braking! It's really like a Prius :)
I currently commute using a regular longboard (http://www.longboardhub.com) and really find it painful to get uphill... Maybe it's time for me to get one of these electric skateboards :)
Omg XD @hauralil_sorcerer

She's gorgeous!!! Thank you DANNY. SHES EVERYHTING THAT I'd wanted.
Smart doll elven ears? :) Smart doll demon horns? :D
@dannychoo ahahahah cocok sekali
That's the Stair-Rover. Danny has had that for a little while now, and its always impressed me that he got hold of one before they were ready for launch. They had the best kickstarter videos I'd seen for any skateboard. He's getting a neat collection of boards now. Guess the popularity of them is growing in Japan these days too.
Going back only a few years, it was hard to find store retailers for skateboards in Japan.
Ouch, that is wet. I stopped riding my electric board in the rain ages ago just due to the hazard of how slick everything becomes. It gets depressing to have to revert to walking on foot, but it avoids the standard skateboard injury you showed. Hope that heals up quick.
Omg shes so cute!!!!!
I like this :) .
it's so cute i want this
But how about dark skinned Indian folks?
I think the red would look better if it's a bit more light-colored (https://t.co/D3P7OMglEc bottom right). Just a suggestion ^^
it's only a matter of time before Upworthy picks this up and do a writeup about beautifully diverse skintone dolls
So every time anything remotely green tea flavored comes up you're going to tag me? -.- I think something like Oreos is going too far anyway. Not my style.
Nazo Kiyoubinbou you would probably like these :p
Favorite Anime: Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Hellsing, Akira, Nausicaa. Also a fan of old Morning Musume, I'm talking like Nakazawa, Iieda, and Abe era.
Great story Danny. I bet those jerk foster parents are real ticked off that you made it big following your dream and are so well loved by many now. In many ways your life is like Harry Potter: you are British, you had evil foster families, but you weaved your magic and came out on top. Japan is maybe like Hogworts??
Yeah, I actually agree with you, sorry it was just a "jerk" reaction (get it? ok I am bad at jokes). A lot of my fellow military personel were actually very uninterested in culture and were just looking to get laid. Some of the stuff they did was embaracing and down right unacceptable. Luckily I tended to keep to myself or a very selected few while in the military and steered away from that type of folk. Still the military was kind of a hurdle in my life so I have to take pride in it and when I see comments like that my initial reaction is negative, sorry about that. Really it comes down to the golden rule: treat others as you'd like to be treated. I can live by that.
I'm throwin' my lot in with Godzilla.
Ah the old Vader carrying case.
Lupin is some great stuff
Rad Vader fig
Vader is awesome.
Godzilla is where it's at!
I lived in Okinawa for 2 years on Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, which I believe is the base they talk about moving. I really enjoyed just relaxing on the beach, eating Okinawa soba, and drinking the local beer Orion. In the summer I think they must have lit fireworks every weekend. Plenty of festivals with good foods and good drinks.
As far as the tension goes, yeah I felt it there between the locals and US. I mean that's to be expected. I'd be disgruntled if there was huge amounts of Japanese military bases in my home town too. That said I really enjoyed my experience over there. Also i was surprised to find that many Okinawans don't like to be considered Japanese. I heard from one that it was the mainland's decision to place the US military bases mainly on Okinawa. Not sure if that is accurate. Okinawa also has a distinct Okinawan language that as far as I could tell is completely different than Japanese even though the alphabet seemed to be the same.
Something to try for you dare devils that are ever in Okinawa is the habu-sake which is sake that has a dead snake soaking in it. As one of my friends so simply put it "Don't worry, the alcohol neutralizes the venom". Not too sure, but I think a local myth is that eating or drinking anything that has to do with a snake helps you with love.
Okinawa soba is the bee's knees.
You know, not everyone in the military was an arrogant jerk.
Iz don know much abouts Samurai, but I watch Seven Samurai, andz Yojimbo and Iz lovin' 'em! Toshiro Mifune is one of mine favorite actors andz Akira Kurosawa is ones of mine favorite directors!
