Have you ever play Robert Kiyosaki's Cashflow 101 board game?

There's deal card "Automated Business Opportunity". These are most profitable business on the card. ROI (Return On Investment) is 60-100%. I was looking for these opportunity in real life for long time (about 4 years).

I was invited sales presentation for vending machine (drink & snack) business. It was first time for me to listen the automated business opportunity. I was so excited.

But I declined. But it is good deal only if it is 20 years ago.

$20K for 3 vending macines. 1 machine is about $6K and earns $6K / year. Then it is about 100% ROI.

But it requires to have physical work to buy snack & drink, deliver, maintenance machines. You need to have inventory and employee (or employ yourself). Then the ROI need to be calculated as subtract your labor.

I was at seminar about Web 2.0 last Friday. The gap was big for me.

Now I realized I'm in Dream Job for 40 hours week and Dream Business for 30-40 hours week. Well I know I'm workaholic. But I don't have any stress. Because I love it what I'm doing.

So the Dream Business I believe now is internet affiliate business or network marketing business. Because you don't need to have inventory, employee, office, commute. You can choose place to live any place in the world.

You still have to customer education, sales, follow up. But it is the most fun part of business. Because customer become your friends.

I had another personal reason. I don't want to contribute people's illness by selling soda or snack.

BTW, my wife and I love to go to sales presentation. If you know something interesting in Silicon Valley, please let us know. We can go together. With us you'll be more secure because I won't do impulse purchase : )

羽田家の2連シャワーフィルター Do you know your skin absorb toxin?

It is called transdermal absorption. Many people care about what you eat & drink. But it is easy to forget about this toxin through your skin. Skin care, cosmetics, even shampoo & soup may harm you.

Chlorine (& chlorinated compound) is in the tap water & shower water. When it get vaporized, you intake to your lung.

Your pore also open with warm water and absorb toxin more.

Right photo is my shower filter. White one is old one. Black one installed recently. Both did not reduce water pressure so much.

I used to get itchy after the hot shower, but after 2nd one. I don't get it any more. My wife experienced same way.

When we had white one first time, we noticed the difference a lot. But the filter may not work long time.

Water in Silicon Valley is not so great. Especially in San Jose. Mountain View was much better. But after both shower filter I think the shower water quality got much improved. I recommended white one to friend in Oklahoma. She like it too. So I think it is worth to try for your place too.

BTW, black one has cleaning mode. In the mode it spray out to left side. It's better to install facing to wall.

White filter: Aquasana Shower Filter
Black filter: New Wellness Shower Filter

You may be able to install 2 white one. (white one is cheaper)
