Ahh this t shirt...can't wait for its release and gorgeous doll!
Let me add these:
Well done Danny san, you got great team and a great leader ( you ) ( ^-^ )~
that is why being able to speak English is a must in the business world...if you can speak third language like Japanese, Korean, Chinese or French, then it will be your strength in the business world
you should just hire someone who have operation management skill to manage your team...
care for a guy from indonesia? not just me, but from around 250millions soul, we have a vast amount of people searching jobs like this. not to mention working in "Mirai Project" is a dream comes true for indon otakus ^^
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
@bellarch28 ingat ingat
danny, please ask your dad! how he manage the company
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 is beautiful!
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 :) .
Time for something new...soonish...
Nice post Danny. It is very much like the one you have written in the past. In other words, if you need to force writing, then it will be crap. Looking forward to your writing on depressing. I wish I could say I didn't fall down that dark hole.
Those of us who like you as a person and are interested in what you are doing will continue to be here for the journey. I find that the people who demand a lot of content are the ones creating nothing. They give no thought to the sacrifices given by the creator. It has been and will always be about quality over quantity.
I would like to go on one of these photo walks. Photography has become like golf, great way to meet people and make contacts.
Hope you and team have a great time! Photos from the Sony look great.
Congratulations Mirai! At this rate Danny you will be working for her soon. ^o^
It's the Peace Statue at the Nagasaki Peace Park.
Lately I have been coming across people who actually want to fight about how expensive it is in Japan. I know, I meet some strange people. Hey, what do I know about living in Japan. :p
When visiting Japan find a local supermarket to buy some of your meals. No need to pay high prices in a conbini for the same food. If you rent a place with a kitchen all the better.
If you wait until you have a lot of cashflow on hand, waiting is all you will be doing. ^^
Danny what about several banner stands that you could put behind a table or in the center of the display you had at Wonder Festival? If they cost to much to buy, maybe you could make then from PVC pipe.
If winters continue like the one we are having now, you might need an all season tire. No offense, but four wheel drive will do no good without the right tires. Gotta think about your back too. ^^ Take care Danny.
Chains like these are a real pain to put on. --#
Now I feel really guilty for crying in my beer about my current situation. My wallet laughs at me lately when I look at it. >< I will try to do my best to help get you back home. I know the short term sacrifice will pay off big for you.
Where did you find the keyboard overlay? Amazon I guess? I have been looking for one myself.
Happy Chinese New Year to you too Danny and everyone here reading! May this New Year bring good health and success to everyone. It's the year of the Horse! Yatta!
A very Happy New Year to you and your family Danny! Keep going and never stop! Thank you for all the inspiration.
I'm pushing forward on my goals and falling down hard. I refuse to give up because I have too much to lose.
Keep pushing forward everyone! Start making those dreams a reality today!
Merry Christmas Mirai-chan! You look cute as always. ^^
Merry Christmas everyone.
Nice post Danny. I always enjoy seeing the Christmas lights in Tokyo. Merry Christmas Danny.
Super cute stuff Danny.
Oh yes, watched a lot of Votoms back in the day. ^o^
Solomon is always living his life according to his own standards and not someone else's. I wish him great success on his new project!
Arabian and Columbian coffee are my favorites. I like french roast or Italian roast after a good meal or with deserts. Next time you are in the state you should pick up a bag of Eight o'clock Coffee.
Same here, I've been drinking more coffee as of late. I hope Starbucks will bring the rewards program in the states here to Japan.
The wife and I recently purchased a Keurig Machine at Costco. It works similar to a french press which give that rich flavor that we love from a cup at Starbucks. We are both pleased with the results so far and like the fact there is no mess to clean up. It is nice for a quick cup in the morning or for a travel mug when heading out.
I haven't tried making tea or ice coffee yet. Right now I'm experimenting with the empty k-cup which allows me to use coffee or tea not sold in k-cups. I'm having mix results so I'm not ready to recommend it yet. You and the wife might want to keep your eyes open for a demonstration in a shop or department store.

Coolsome, photo comments now show up in feedly preview mode!
My favorite as well. I recently sent mail some to friends in Japan. Looks like you need a care package. ^o^
My wife has been hinting at a day trip to Kyoto for shopping and such. It will finally be a good chance to visit Tenshi no Sato as well. You know me, I haven't adopted a DD yet but I do do think they are sweet. ^o^
I'm assuming you have photos of the Volks office to share too? ^^;
You are missing the point of the comments being made. No one is making light of what Samsung is doing. The point is we should be against ALL companies that abuses the rights of their workers. Pointing the finger at ONE company while ignoring the wrong of other companies is not right.
I can tell you as an American and a union member that many workers died at the hands of company thugs to create unions in the US. Just as with the Japanese, Americans did not have these right handed to them, they fought for thoese rights. Worker can always change the system.
Just discovered this three part article by Andy Ihnatko on Techhive about his switch to Android. In this second part he makes two points about customization which lead to ease of use. Well worth the few minutes read.
I recommend the iPhone to most people who ask me. Anyone who would need an Android device will not ask which device they should buy. :p In other words, people who need, can and are willing to get their hands dirty will go for the Android device.
Right now I want to switch to Android simple because I'm not a fanboy of any manufacturer and I see myself as cross platform person. I want to develope for both Android and iOS devices. What is holding me back? Money is a big issue right now. Yes, a big issue. I have a few applications I can't find counterparts for on Android. Solutions I need to find answers for soon.
Off topic, I ordered a new non-retina MBP last month. I took a hard look at the retina machines and decided I didn't need one and it wouldn't give me any benefits over the high-res display. With the new MBP specs out, I have an entry level retina machine. Now I can afford to buy some new apps and gear as well.
You know as well as I do Danny that it's all about what you need to get done. At the same time it's about building and living your life and not someone else's life. You don't buy things because they are new or in vogue. You buy them because they are what you need to build your future, your way. ^_^ Hey it worked for Steve Jobs...
