Misleading title. Should be named " Failure World Business Symbol" or "How to become a s*ave/Prison B**** in a New World"

MC ends up in a fantasy magic/sword world and decides to sell soap to make a living. Decent start, right? Except...... the MC promptly makes a train-wreck of crappy business decisions. Luckily god himself must be watching out for the MC since he has roughly half a dozen "blessings" to keep reality from occurring (3 in 1 language blessing, 1 plot armor blessing, and 1 super luck blessing).

Examples of mistakes... more>> in just the first 9 chapters include:


1) Selling his fancy high quality cookware and paper at dirt cheap prices. Sold at ~300k monies. Yet he literally sells 20 pennies for 3 MILLION monies just a few days later.... that cookware's probably worth a lot more AND he could've used it in his plans to make soap.) This mistake is excusable since he just got there and didn't know anything. But I would've still kept the paper just to jot down my notes/ideas/process in [Japanese] to keep my ideas straight & keep New Worlders from knowing what I'm planning.

2) Creating his product in plain view of everyone outside the damn castle. Great way to get your simple idea stolen. Inexcusable. There's no copyright protection. He could've simply burned the wood outside and made the soap in his room or something. (as long as he's using no/low-smoke heating.)

3) Giving away his first bar of soap at manufacturing cost. Wut? MC already knew soap is a luxury good. Realistically everyone's going to expect ridiculously low prices (seriously, who wouldn't brag about receiving something like super fancy perfume for $1?) Derp. Besides, he was dirt poor, at least turn a profit on it to cover a meal/inn cost or something.

4) Telling his newly gained s*ave the entire manufacturing process and requirements. She just met you, literally nothing's stopping her from just taking the process and selling it to the loanshark for her freedom & 10 million monies. Derp. Even the loanshark realizes he could just force a s*ave/future worker to tell him the manufacturing process. Should've just left the s*ave to burn firewood for the ash/ask around the city for sources of ash (since it doesn't seem like the citizens are using it for anything).

5) Buying a damn plot of land AND a factory on literally his 2nd day in business. Holy carp you farking moron. Should've just stuck with the stall idea and bought a RESTAURANT to obscure your manufacturing process/requirements (since a restaurant can easily use salt, oil, and firewood).

6) Telling a freaking loanshark the exact manufacturing cost. He's a damn loanshark, he doesn't need to know how much profit you're turning. That's just asking to get robbed later down the line. Better to keep costs/profits a secret so people mistakenly believe you're barely turning a profit --> Less likely for your entire operation to be seized. Hell, I would've just BSed it by claiming it's a re-manufactured bubbleberry product to make it more believable/obscure my process or by claiming it's made by some unique talent/blessing only I have (Thus ensuring my safety/discouraging theft).

It has soap in it, what more could you ask for?

... Well...

Maybe... but could you pick up the soap? (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Also its very different from the usual agriculture and democracy crap that other world travelers bring so its a big plus, the story also has a very simple layout so don’t expect soapy descriptions, the chapters are very short so you would most like want to binge read this.

The MC is the s*upid naive kind that is led by women. I feel like he is asking to be robbed. The only thing he knows is how to make soap but he is telling everyone the initial price and what goes in it. I don't understand why the japanese love to have a tsundere character and the harem plot. This MC is such a sissy wiht such blessings use your head more.
