On Sunday, Shawn and I took a break from our studies and walked around the Photo Imaging Expo in Tokyo. Thanks to the power of social networking, we were able to meet and enjoy lunch with the dynamic duo of Gary Fong and Melissa Carl. Gary is an incredible entrepreneur and slightly well-known in the photography community. My write up will not do him justice, so I encourage you to read up on Gary for yourself and check out the business website – Gary Fong Inc.
Gary and Melissa were in Japan for the initial launch of Gary’s products to the Japan market. (There is no doubt their products will be well-received in Japan!) We had a great time getting a peak inside their creative minds, as well as listening to their stories on how impressed they are with everything in Japan. We can’t say enough about how down-to-earth and hilarious they are! Maybe it’s the ‘midwest connection’ that Melissa, Shawn and I share. 🙂 Their energy is contagious and we walked away feeling so inspired!!
Melissa & Gary – We honestly can’t thank you enough for your time. This was an experience we will definitely not forget! (Can you say “C-o-l-l-a-p-s-i-b-l-e”?) We look forward to following the success of your business and meeting up with you on your next trip to Japan.
