Slacker to businessman

It seems like every time I update this site, I am apologizing for not writing much and telling you that I have been really busy. So...that is true. AGAIN!

But now, for the first time since I left investment banking, I truly know what being busy means! Yep...no more slacker Kirk!

First of all, I finally got a visa! Woo hoo! It is an investor visa, which I received because I have formed my own company. If that was all, I wouldn't be so busy, but I am using that company to start and run a surf shop in Kugenuma, Japan. I have spent the last two months getting ready for this and the opening is scheduled for December 20th.

I am really excited about it, but also very worried. It is a big commitment of both time and money. And I worry that my Japanese isn't good enough to take on a project like this. I can communicate, but it is not sophisticated enough for nuance or persuasion. Then again, my English can be pretty awful too, so who knows?

Anyway...wish me luck!
