“100 years of life” and future side business

1. Japan is reaching the era where people will live over 100 years.
2. Changes in the environment surrounding side businesses.
3. “The best ever” where the compound interest of success will come true.

Be careful here! Pit of side business!

1. Do only one type of gig.
2. Expect too much out of the side gig.

The equation to be 1 in 100 successful
TO-DO: Prioritize the scenery beyond financial freedom.

What I want to try?

Mystery Shopper
To me, they just give a new cooler name to the auditor. Your job here is to audit the performance of the business.

Social renting, this one is an investment;. So it is a crowdfunding bank.

To sum up, the book opens up the world of Japanese gigs to me.

Work part-time as a beginning of a business.

Goal check: I learned what gigs are available and where to find them. In Japanese sites, they call these auditors a monitor.
