Arigato Natto 3ーFive steps to scale up small initiative in Europe

English日本語EspañolFrançais, Português

Since I moved to Denmark (last November), this is the first entry to write something related to the experience here.

Natto making in Denmark as a scale-up.

Yes, it is about natto making which I started in Africa. But it is also about showing how to scale up something. So hopefully this will serve for natto lovers as well as anyone who wants to scale up what you do, be it a start-up, project, hobby or your learning cycle.

Among so many things in our planet, there is one big group which maintains life of all living things.

Passing HSK 3 in 1 month after 3 years of absence since the decision to study Chinese

English日本語EspañolFrançais, Português

你明白我在写什么吗?

Although Chinese has been my “to-learn language” for several years, I haven’t been able to improve much simply because my level of motivation was not that high.

The deadline was in 1 month, which was descent timeline (as opposed to X years). In this entry, I am sharing my journey, including what HSK is, why I took and how I worked on to pass it in 1 month.
