The richest, mysterious and ancient culture of Japan captivates the minds of the rest of the world for over 100 years. The countries of Asia and Europe were enthusiastic and adopted the experience of Japan for a long time. In the modern world, it can be said that every third person for at least a short period in life, but felt the enthusiasm for blooming sakura trees.
The Japanese cultural heritage and multifaceted complex traditions set the trends today, without losing its relevance and importance. One of those who realized this in their own experience and became successful, having absorbed her wisdom over the long years of staying in this country, is the famous billionaire and philanthropist Patokh Chodiev.
Businessman Patokh Chodiev since childhood dreamed of Japan
Being a Soviet schoolboy from an Uzbek town, Patokh Chodiev became interested in Japanese culture. He read in the library those rare magazines or books, where it was possible to collect that tiny drop of information about a mysterious and distant island state.
The future billionaire and philanthropist had a chance to get more information about Japanese culture in his youth. This happened when a graduate of the Frunze school firmly decided and managed without any outside help to enter the elite of Soviet university - MGIMO. Diligence and talent allowed Patokh Chodiev to pass the admission exams with a high score.
Here, at MGIMO, Patokh Chodiev was presented with an extensive library fund where he, with unusual zeal and enthusiasm, began to fill in the gaps in informational baggage about Japanese culture and traditions of the Japanese. Here he began to learn the language, albeit without the opportunity to communicate with its native speakers.
Patokh Chodiev: true desire gives opportunities
After graduation, the future entrepreneur had the opportunity to go to Japan as part of a trade mission from the USSR. He received the position of advisor. Once in the Land of the Rising Sun, Chodiev from the very first days set to deeply study the national heritage, traditions and secrets of business ethics among representatives of the ancient people.
Making the dream, that you actually live and breathe, come true is real. A living proof is Patokh Chodiev. The job of an advisor to a sales representative and training in Japan became the basis for his life path and the long history of becoming a businessman. It was here, in Japan, that Patokh Chodiev, while communicating with representatives of the business world, learned how an effective business works. The Japanese gave him a huge store of knowledge and information about the productivity of proper communication, following business ethics, which later became his distinction from other personalities of the first cohort of independent entrepreneurs after the USSR collapse.
According to Patokh Chodiev, her owes his entreprenerial success not only to his own qualities of character, but also to correctly chosen priorities in life. The road to success was built during his studies at a Moscow university, and the formation of a philanthropist was in the homeland of the samurai. Mostly the carriers of the ancient culture and traditions of the island state instilled in Chodiev a faithful approach to business management, providing growth prospects for many years. The secrets of a good life and the alignment of life priorities that successful and respected Japanese people shared with him included even the intricacies of communicating with relatives, loved ones, colleagues, as well as business partners and even enemies.
But not without successful acquaintances, which grew into fruitful long-term cooperation, the consequence of which was the creation of transcontinental corporations.
Patokh Chodiev will not cease to be grateful to Japan
Patokh is usually laconic. The billionaire is used to expressing his intentions with weighty actions. So he expresses his love for Japan, its rich ancient cultural heritage in supporting large-scale projects. The Japanese people appreciated his wide gesture of gratitude when Chodiev bought, for the purpose of preservation for the Japanese, a unique collection of kimono by the hand of master Ittika Kubota. He bought it for more than $ 3 million and said that as soon as there was a representative of Japan who could ensure proper preservation of the exhibits, he would immediately donate the entire collection. And this is by no means an example of his appreciation.
