As for YOU, Okami.... I say keep the faith.

Truly, IKEA is nothing but a distraction. The people who shop there are not your market! Without an IKEA, those same people would choose to buy something similarly cheap elsewhere. Every minute a professional woodworker spends fretting about IKEA is a minute that could be productively invested in identifying REAL prospective customers and figuring out how to effectively market to them. Sam Maloof didn't become Sam Maloof by trying to compete with the price of mass-produced junk - instead, he raised his prices and rich people flocked to stand in line and wait.

You can do it.
Thanks for the support Laurie
I'm trying hard to keep things going steady here. It's been a tough year here in Japan.. Many small businesses have gone under. We're all hoping for a better 2012

Hopefully our (my?) advice against going was good advice and he hasn't bought into something similar. He has stellar talent and I wish the best for him.
Does anyone else remember that situation I'm talking about?
Yes, I remember that, Ron..
There are a lot of scams coming out of that part of the world.

I was thinking it was NIgeria or Namibia or someplace. In any case, I'm pretty sure that's not what happened with Eiji. I'll try to find out...

Yes, that sounds correct. Hopefully (I guess) he has a new, good paying job near where he lives now.
