I read a book called Do Less, and everything the author writes in the book resonates with me as I was overworking for a long time. Yet since 2011, I have changed my habits and traveled the world. 😊 What my life was like in the past: Before 2016, I was working extremely hard (too hard). I had three jobs at the same time. I was teaching at three different institutes. I injured my vocal cords and was crying late at night because I didn’t know what to do – I liked that profession, but my voice was not [...]

As a business owner and world traveler, I’ve met a lot of entrepreneurs who run Internet businesses while traveling the world. As I’m very interested in time and energy management, I’ve summarized the best tips for time and energy management. Time is an asset.

As a digital nomad, I’ve been working for myself for a very long time. Since I run an online business, I don’t have to go to the office every day in order to get my work done – I can simply do everything on my laptop. Therefore, I’ve been a superfan of international travel for more than one decade. Get rid of low-leverage activities. As I am able to travel the world while doing remote work, I have decided not to do the following low-leverage activities: I don’t answer phone calls from unrecognized telephone numbers anymore. This type of phone calls [...]

Talking about travelling in East Asia, my favorite activity is going to Muji while having fun in Japan. As to Muji’s opportunities, two important opportunities have been found: The first opportunity is international expansion. Sato (2010) maintains that the current domestic market in Japan is already saturated because Muji is a very popular and well-known brand in Japan. Meanwhile, the eco-friendly, no-brand trend looks very attractive and desirable globally. Thus, Muji can expand internationally. Now Muji also has many stores in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. The second opportunity is launching new sustainable and environmentally friendly products. [...]
Investors are going to build a new hotel in Southeast Asia, so travel in Southeast Asia will be more stimulating: Passage is a high-end, luxurious themed hotel based in Singapore. It is best characterized by multiple themes from different cultures. As a customer-based and service-oriented business, Passage focuses on innovation, uniqueness and good value. Since Singapore holds a very strong position globally, it provides a positive environment for such a new business. Although this new brand requires some time to create brand recognition and build reputation, its new attractive features would certainly generate competitive advantages amongst rivals on the market. In [...]

Singapore holds a strong position internationally, has FTA with numerous countries such as US., China, India, Japan, Korea, and Australia. The stable politics make Singapore a healthy environment to establish business. Economically, low-income tax and steady GDP growth make Singapore attractive to investors. Inflation rate is relatively low (1.49%) compared with Australia (2.21%) on average since 2010. However, currency appreciation against the major inbound tourists including China, Indonesia and the US., proper plan is needed when appreciation is extreme. Socially, being a multicultural and tourism country, a high hospitality experience standard is highly expected by global tourists. The rise of Airbnb [...]
Travel in Japan is popular because Japan has so much to offer. Muji is a Japanese retail company that sells a wide range of consumer goods and household products. Its design philosophy is very minimalist as it emphasizes reducing production & packaging waste as well as recycling. Also, its ‘no-brand’ / no-logo policy is truly unique. The brand name Muji means no-brand high-quality goods. Due to its no-brand strategy, Muji spends very little money on classical marketing or advertisement. Clearly, word of mouth, the simple and satisfying shopping experience and its anti-brand movement have significantly contributed to Muji’s success as a [...]
Currently, in Australia there are two eco-friendly hotels that are successful – Bubble Tent Australia in New South Wales and Mile End Glamping in Western Australia. As these two hotels are highly profitable already, it is clear that although the current market size is not tremendous, the growth potential is huge.

Since more and more people are becoming health-conscious, seeking a healthy lifestyle is the current industry trend (Manson 2020). Similar hotels in Japan and Thailand have already attracted a large number of [...]
