If you’re looking to start a new business, one that amounts to nothing – this is something I know for a FACT you could do. There’s this crazy 37-year-old guy named Shoji Morimoto in Tokyo, Japan.  And he’s making serious bank renting himself out, quote, “to do nothing.” Everybody knows “someone” at work who is already doing the same. Haaa. You know I’m right.

In this case, exactly what does “hire me to do nothing” mean?  People hire him when they basically need a body but that’s it.  Like, he’ll get hired to show up at someone’s going away party to make the numbers better.  Or he’ll just walk in silence with someone who doesn’t want to be alone.

One woman says she hired him when she was meeting a guy for the first time . . . when she just needed someone to listen to her views on love and not respond . . . and when she went to apply at a job and needed support. Shoji says he will, quote, “Eat and drink, give simple feedback, but do nothing more.” Side bar: That’s what friends are for.  Maybe try making a friend?

Crazy ain’t it. But since he started his job doing nothing in 2018, he’s had more than 3,000 people hire him.  He charges $100 per job.

I trust dogs and horses, love country music, and country fried chicken. Fought many men, and loved only 1 woman. She's from Nashville, so the accent. Life is short. Make somebody smile, Dog-gonnit. Haaaaaa.
