My name is Rutsuko Noda DeBels.

I’m a business consultant and owner of Outward Consulting LLC. 

As a native Japanese person living in the United States for over 23 years, I’ve become an expert about building a bridge and helping businesses between the US and Europe and Asia with unmatched passion. I’ve also helped the world’s biggest tech companies for their localization goals for past 18 years. 


In my private life, I enjoy chasing my other dreams as an athlete. I’m a runner and yogi. 


I’m a big believer for an old Japanese motto "practice makes perfect". Every small practice and time we put to improve every day counts and makes a big difference at the end. Persistence pays off. You’ll find me blogging about my runs, inspirations from my dear fitness pals and photos in Instagram.
