Maction Planet Founder Mac guests on the ‘Business Success Japan’ podcast
PRESS RELEASE: Maction Planet is excited to announce that Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, was the special guest on the latest episode of the Business Success Japan podcast hosted by Lydia Beukelman.
The Business Success Japan podcast was created to provide an easily-accessible resource for people who want to develop Japan-specific communication skills, especially in the business world, providing listeners of each episode with a skill, piece of information, or shift in mindset that will allow them to be more effective in their interactions with Japanese professionals.
“With his years of experience in Japan and his profound admiration for the country and its culture, I knew that he would be able to share important insights with my podcast listeners.” said Lydia. “Mac’s story is proof that, while head-knowledge is important, true success in Japan can only be reached through deep and meaningful connections.”
“I have been following the Business Success Japan podcast for some time, so when Lydia reached out and invited me to be a guest, I was honoured.” said Mac. “I hope our conversation proves inspirational to those considering moving to Japan, or who want to take their experiences and relationships in this great nation to the next level.”
In this episode, Mac shares his own experiences moving to and falling in love with the country, as well as his practical insights into how best to build and maintain relationships in Japan. Lydia and Mac also discuss an important concept for foreigners living and doing business in Japan to know called the ‘gaijin-card’.
Lydia’s favourite quote from the episode:
“Leave a little bit of the negative parts of your individuality at immigration, and come here with an open mind and an open heart and an open spirit to try to understand Japan from Japan’s perspective.”
