Hello everyone, I am Ai Sasaki, a Japanese financial planner and a matchmaker.
It has been 8 months since the last post. I went to Ghana again last April and stayed for three weeks to work with my partner Donald. It is not easy for the private company to start a business in a developing country, however, we have still advantage for his good connections in Ghana. We forwarded one step for our business. After I backed to Japan I had to renew the business in Japan. I opened an insurance agency in my company and employed three insurance planners last August.
Donald backed to home town San Francisco in the United States at the same time and started to prepare to move to Japan with his children and his sister. We will settle our new home in Hiroshima, Japan and will become a big family! I found a big apartment for the new family near my office and went to see Hiroshima International School for his children. Now he has visited London to foward the next step for the family. Our love is growing step by step.
Where to live must be important matter for every couple. It depends on where to work. Where to work is a financial base. It is easier to move for young age because they can still develop their career flexibly. But in modern age most men and women work as salaried worker and are managed where to work, what to do and when to work by a company so the older they grow, the harder to change their job they become. I saw many around 40’s Japanese women can not make a choice of marriage until they find a man around who can maintain his family because they want to have a baby too. Most of them are educated beautiful women. But many Japanese men exclude around 40’s women from candidate of their wife. In my idea, those around 40’s women should go to find their future husband in the world if they don’t find in Japan.
If I was a salaried worker I would be more difficult to choose international marriage. But fortunately I am an entrepreneur and have started my business as a finacial planner and a matchmaker after my career in the insurance company for 9 years and could manage my time and work by myself. Besides I could communicate in English and already knew I should invest in all over the world though I did not know yet where I invest. When Donald and I met first time, he was about to retire the military in six months and was thinking to start a business in Ghana. Ghana was his last post. He talked me about profitable investment opportunities in Ghana and proposed me to invest in Ghana. Ghana? I was not familiar to Ghana. Japanese investment intention has been toward Southeast Asia countries. There may be still attructive investment but I thought it means Japanese are already crowded in Southeast Asia and is too late to invest. Then I decided to study about Ghana and started to walk on the road to invest in Ghana with Donald’s guide. He had already found a property to invest and had an investment vision. I was attracted to his vision. We put my idea into his vision together then started to walk together. This was our beginning. Now we have companies in Japan and Ghana. He mainly manages the business in Ghana and I mainly manage the business in Japan.
It has been two years and nine months since we met. We have walked on the steep road together to build our financial base until today. I think it is good for us to experience to get over hard time together before marriage because we have to manage both the family life and the business. Lovers spend just only good time together but marriage (husband & wife) is a unit to get over hard time with romance and hope for the future. When I was young I didn’t understand that very much. Recently Donald started to call me “Wifey” when he wrote me emails. What is Wifey??? I looked up the word in the dictionary. Wifey is a more special word to say for his woman. What word should I reply to him? And I found the word in the dictionary and replied to him “Hubby”.
