Have you seen the 90's movie "Small Soldiers"? Those barbies were scary!

I am impressed by your story. Is Ivory or Ebony available from Kinokuniya Singapore? Thank you.
Thank you so much for the hospitality and lunch! My group and I had a great time ^^

MIRAI STORE TOKYO店内前面写真や動画OK 。展示しているドールおさわりOK。持ち込みドール服着せてもOK。
Sounds like a good problem to have though, guess that's evidence you're getting out of the entrepreneurial start-up stage and moving to the next stage of a business.
What cute puppy :3 <3
yikes. managing people is probably the most difficult aspect of your job. since it's not just one personality, but multiple personalities. each one different from the next. they all have their own experience, concerns, troubles, egos; it's honestly such a pain to round up people for a common goal and motivate them to work towards it. and this is just coming from a guy who plays internet team games, lol!

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

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
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
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 ^^
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 :)
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.
I love video games, consumer electronics, Asian dramas and music. I am currently in medical school and do some light blogging for fun.
Hopefully Danny will upload more episodes of Culture Japan to Youtube because there doesn't seem to be an on-demand way to watch this show :(
(unless I've looked in all the wrong places)
Super Potato is a fantastic place to visit, but be aware that they have higher prices due to all the Western media publicity they get.
Why are you reposting something from 4 years ago?
I would consider the iPhone if it came out for multiple carriers in the U.S. (particularly Verizon). In the U.S., iPhone is exclusive to the garbage AT&T for the next couple years.
I knew immediately this was a repost because Danny doesn't do photo walks anymore :(
I did not like the Apple iPad case because it was so flimsy. If you need a stand, you can get a business card holder or a plate holder for very cheap, both of which work fantastic. A couple photos here http://www.protocolsnow.com/2010/05/22/deciding-on-an-ipad-case/
Personally, the iPad is too limited for me and I wouldn't get much use out of it. It is fantastic for my mom though, and I bought her one for mother's day.
M-flo has a couple jazz-inspired collaborations, but otherwise that's a pretty weird comparison.
Agree on Danny's amazing networking prowess though!
I forgot to mention that Limousine Bus takes you directly to the front door of many hotels. The seats are also fairly spacious and comfortable. Highly recommended.
I've had nothing but positive experiences with Limousine Bus. I always travel with a lot of luggage so using the trains is a big hassle. If you don't like carrying big suitcases up and down stairs, stay away from the trains!!
I bought an iPad for my mom. It's great for web browsing and email but it certainly has some significant limitations. Hopefully as time goes on, there will be more cool apps released.
Welcome home! The Heathrow airport lounge is very familiar to me because I was stranded there last year also. Only for about 3 hours though, not a week like you!
Good job blending in with the group. Almost worked ;)
Hope you get home soon! Paris isn't a bad place to be stuck though :)
Look on the bright side... of all the places to be stranded, Paris isn't too bad ;)
Can't wait to see your travel photos!
I agree, not too big a fan of sites that rely exclusively on user-generated content. At least Dannychoo.com still publishes lots of original content.
Fantastic facility design!
iPad is Apple's biggest disappointment. I haven't seen such widespread discontent from a new Apple product. Seems like a completely superfluous product.
Danny looks really handsome as a young man! Did you have any fun encounters with the lovely flight attendants? :)
Thanks for introducing cu-te.tv to us!
Wow this is very impressive use of technology!
Very cool feature, though it seems like too many users are spamming the images.
It's hard to get a bad meal in Japan :)
Which camera did you use? These photos look quite a bit sharper than past photos.
I got my copy! Looking forward to Otacool 2 :)
