Yoko and I are both entrepreneurs, and we have been interacting as friends about our respective ventures. She is particularly good at antici ... pating customer needs and expectations, therefore designing and marketing products. She will help you avoid cutting corners where you cannot; she will also help you place your product in the right channel.
