10 ideas for working for yourself in Japan

If you’re looking to move to Japan and start working in Japan… why not just start a business instead and have the freedom to travel Japan and live where ever you want. It’s not for everybody, but it’s an option to consider. I was checking out MSN today and this article caught my eye: StartupNation Home-Based 100: 10 top home businesses in 10 categories. I’m always interested in hearing success stories and I know stories like this fuel other entrepreneurs by letting them know that a dream can become a reality. I know this talks about Americans but anybody can be a successful entrepreneur when living in another country. If that other country isn’t your home land, you might have a few minor setbacks but that shouldn’t stop you. If you’re not sure where to start there are some great entrepreneur magazines available and some books to get you started.

There are 100 people listed on MSN. Here are a few I find really interesting.

From The Top Ten Yummiest
Ciao Laura, Smyrna, Tenn.
Ciao Laura, as Laura Faust likes to be called, knows how to cook, and she knows how to stir up the votes. Her company takes people to Italy on cooking adventures, hopping from local restaurants to 15th-century villas to once-upon-a-time culinary hot spots like Pompeii. She must have a lot of happy customers willing to support her.

From The Top Ten Most Innovative
The Organizing Wiz, New York
As a professional organizer, Ilene Drexler can change your life. In the confines of Manhattan’s smallish apartments, we can’t imagine a greater luxury than having things tucked away neatly to clear some space and let the light in again. In a personalized, one-on-one consultation, she’ll assess your situation, decide on the right prescription and, with your green light, start sorting, weeding, categorizing, labeling and storing items. She currently focuses on residences, but this also sounds like a great service for rushed small-business owners.

From the MSN article:

Millions of Americans dream of starting their own businesses at home, but these entrepreneurs have made it work. The StartupNation Home-Based 100 represents the best of the best — the most successful, the most innovative, the most adventurous, the downright wacky and more.
