Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



Wal-Mart has been purchased by South Korean Shinsagae.

Wal-Mart is South Korea that is.

Wal-Mart said the will “focus their efforts where they can have the greatest impact on their growth strategy.”

What that means is, they can make more money somewhere else than they can in South Korea. OR…they couldn’t figure out how to navigate the South Korean discount market and attract South Korean customers.

Wal-Mart couldn’t make it in South Korea after being there for about 8 years.  The best they could do was make the place last among Korea’s five major discount stores.

Gee…Wal-Mart canNOT do everything everwhere. Isn’t that interesting?

What do you think?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.

    Wal-Mart needs to come back home and get out of the fiarine market. And stop worring about how to make money in other Countries because it is destoying the job market here with low wages and poor benefits.
    At one time Wal Mark was a great place to work but now it is just a means of paying the bills.
