How I Got Here: Megumi Moss

megumimossI am founder and CEO of CareFinder (www.carefinder.jp), a bilingual babysitter matching website operated in Japan. I have done a number of things before CareFinder. In my early twenties, I studied fashion and business in London. After realizing that fashion wasn’t for me, I traveled a bit and took the Trans-Siberian Railroad back to Japan. I worked in the corporate world for majority of my career and spent 10 years at Sony.  Though I enjoyed working at Sony, I didn’t feel satisfied with what I was doing.

I realized there was a major childcare shortage in Japan when I was trying to have a child while working at Sony. After learning about US babysitting services from my husband, I decided I needed to leave the corporate world and start something similar in Japan. Soon after, I founded CareFinder.

I didn’t know many people outside of Sony and wanted to build my network so, at the urging of a friend, I decided to join FEW. FEW has been inspirational for me. Meeting very motivated women has helped me to tap into my own motivation. Without FEW, I would not have been able to take CareFinder to where it is today.

I was so inspired to contribute to the FEW community, that I joined the FEW board for a couple of years. It was a very enriching experience. I stepped down from the board to focus on CareFinder, but I look forward to being a long-term member of FEW and helping the community flourish.
