2016-08-29 23:52   Standing at the Starting Line

Y (Kuma's owner)

Yesterday was a remarkable day for my husband and me. We started our business, selling our products (Juno's Spinner) on eBay. We both love puzzles and have been having a dream making puzzles as a business.

To start with our business, we had many difficulties such as getting information, studying English and preparing documents for the Australian government and so on. The highest hurdle was permanent residency, of course. We had to gain permanent residency at any cost otherwise we were not able to start our business in Australia. We had been having days of trial and error. We had spent about five years to reach our aim. In this five years, lots of people helped us. I'm grateful for their cooperation.

We haven't even established our company in our home country, Japan. We had no idea what to do and decided to ask specialists; accountants. They had done a good job, they prepared the documents to establish our partnership business. We had done all the paperwork and we are finally standing at the starting line.

I had been aiming my target to start our business, but I'm going to change my goal from now on. Making good puzzles and making a living with it, that should be our new goal.

Transformable Plyhedron - Juno's Spinner

We are mainly going to make and sell our original puzzles but our first product is not a puzzle, it's a transformable polyhedron (dodecahedron model) which was invented by my husband in 1998. I think it takes some time to produce wooden puzzles. We intend to sell our originals, even if it is not a puzzle, like we are selling this time, it's OK. We want to produce originals.

Luckily, we have plenty of ideas. We would like to realise our ideas. That's our dream.
