With a wonderful wife and two great kids (so far) to provide for I realized that in the future this wouldn’t be enough to pay for school fees, medical and everything else. So in January 2004 I sat down with Smith’s School of English and we put into effect a plan. In September 2004 I opened my school in Okamoto, Kobe. This was also the start of my property investing. With an English school??? Let’s go back a few years.
