-- A message from the author
I know that I don't have any special talent.
If I had, I wouldn't have had those "dark days."

I have become "needed by people" because of marketing as "wisdom for living," which I have mastered in the 20 years from those dark days to the present.

By understanding marketing, I have been able to expand the scope of my work significantly. It also helped me to rethink my career plan. Not only that, but by extending it to the level of my way of life, I have been able to enrich my hobbies and send out information.

I want to share with you all the marketing as "wisdom for living" in this book.
