Kazuyo Katsuma, one of the most famous women in Japan, even making The Wall Street Journal's "The Top 50 Women to Watch" list, offers her advice on how to live one's life.

This newly packaged edition of Katsuma’s first major publication has arrived! With all the books she authored becoming best sellers, not a day goes by in Japan where she cannot be seen appearing in a major media outlet such as television, newspaper, and magazines.

In Practical Guidebook to Independent Life, Katsuma candidly shares all her knowledge on studying, investing one's time, optimization, finances, as well as how to become a stronger person, and even how to choose the right partner. 

According to Katsuma, an independent woman is someone who:

-  Earns more than 6,000,000 yen annually

-  Has a good partner

-  And only improves upon her self as she ages, constantly improving her ability to be both emotionally and financially independent from others

Take a moment to read Practical Guidebook and learn in-depth Katsuma’s rules for being independent, and you too can open the door to independent living, along with a whole new world of possibility and freedom.
