An Educational Week

Getting everything started this past week has been very educational. I've learned about how websites have changed since I last made one. I've learned about tax laws, import laws, and business licenses. I've learned about Japanese business mannerisms. And I've learned a little bit about marketing. But, the most important thing I learned is how fun it is to work for myself. Every time I have work to do, I'm happy to do it. Even the boring and tedious stuff.

I also realized how awesome of family and friends Sara and I have. Without them, none of this would be possible. Of course both of our parents are instrumental in all of this, but I'm also lucky to have people like Jeff Marks around (honestly, my cousin is a marketing genius). A lot of people are taking time out of their days to talk to me and give me advise and counsel. I really appreciate it.

Here's the kicker though... I get to do all this, every day together with Sara from wherever we want to be.
