Yes, he has:

1.  had the days where he wanted to quit, but “we don’t quit”

2. had his equipment malfunction

3. second guessed if he was doing the right thing or not

4. worried about cash flow

5. stayed up at night thinking about how the business will grow


But starting a business in Japan has presented a host of other issues that most entrepreneurs do not have to face such as:

1. securing permits in a foreign land

2. initially, not speaking the language

3. not understand the monetary exchange rate

4. developing a market penetration plan for an unfamiliar demographic in a foreign country

5. planning what will happen

Rob has proven to be an entrepreneur who can overcome obstacles.  Keep doing your thing Bruh, 06!
