|Not used in a business context. かつどう means ‘She’s active in charities and AIDS awareness.’ ‘He’s really active in the youth baseball league.’ ’This area has been a hotbed of gang activity.’
|Someone who is active, as in always getting stuff done, a self-starter, someone who is DIY – as opposed to a passive, timid, apathetic, obedient person.
