Feeling stuck, frustrated and just about ready to give up?

It’s awful right. We don’t want to give up and go home, that would feel like failing. Besides, you want to live in Japan, but you want to make enough money to go out to nice restaurants, take a trip a few times a year, and pay off your students loans.

I totally understand, and I’ve been there.

Fast forward a few years and headaches, and I get the best pay I’ve ever had in my life.

I can help you on your path to getting that kind of work here in Japan, and do what you want to do, not just what you have to do to pay the bills. Do you want to get paid what you’re worth?

Where a lot of foreigners are:

  • We work too much and don’t get paid enough.

  • We can’t take holidays, and only get time off when everyone has time off, so travel is really expensive.

  • Our house is tiny. We can’t afford to move and even if we could, many of the places we want to live refuse foreigners.

It doesn’t have to be that way for you.

I’ll show you how to switch it up.

What difference can it make:

  • An extra ¥40,000 per month can be the difference between scraping by and not worrying about money.

  • An extra two hours not working per day can mean having time to take Japanese classes or relax more.

  • Getting a 200k bonus every year can mean a week-long holiday to Bali, or enough to move to a nicer apartment closer to where you want to live.

And it doesn’t take all that much extra work to do it – in fact, you can make more money while working less when you know which positions offer the best hourly rates.

Discover your passions

You might not even know what you want to do with your life. Don’t worry. That’s normal in this world where so many of the coolest jobs were invented after you finished school. I’ll help you figure out which path is right for you, and set you off in that direction.

Do the work

I’m not an oracle, and I can’t give you your dream job on a silver platter. You will have to do the work, but I’ll help you set bite-sized goals and steps to take so you can keep on building momentum.

Join Other Successful Expats

I asked Charlie for help because of his experience in job search in Japan but also because I know he is interested in helping people to find their own “why”.

[Charlie helped me] realise that it’s possible to work as a freelancer in Japan and pursue my dreams.


[I wanted to know] how to become self-employed, and how to successfully free up time in order to seek better professional opportunities. I needed to talk to someone that thought out of the box and Charlie is brilliant at doing that.
