Making Money Rain for Your Business
Hussain al Nowais, the Emirates Holdings managing director and chairman, enjoys taking challenges, such as making dying companies live and soar high in the world of business. A lot of people are wondering how this UAE businessman succeeded so much in his career.
According to Hussain al Nowais, he was born in the time when life was so hard, which made him push his limits.
When Hussain al Nowais was still young, he and his siblings saw the struggles of their parents. And now, they are already enjoying the good things that they have earned.
According to him, purified drinking water was a luxurious kind of water for them while only a few can afford to have an air conditioner. Abu Dhabi, as Hussain al Nowais described, can be compared to a village with no people. Years ago, their family stayed in an area of Corniche, and the town’s centre was Al Husn.
Since the education in Abu Dhabi before was not that high, Al Nowais traveled to Qatar to be able to get into a school.The norm before was to migrate to a different place, like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to be able to survive.
Al Nowais’ family only returned to Abu Dhabi, along with other families, when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president of UAE. Their progress as a family started with Al Nowais’ grandfather who from a pearl merchant became a trader for foodtsuffs and materials. Their family managed to become a trade organisation after that.
Al Nowais went to the U.S. to study after he got his high school diploma from a school in Abu Dhabi.
He finished a business administration degree in the United States of America and then practices it right away in the UAE, wherein his heart and soul were filled with optimism and bright ideas. It was no surprise that when Al Nowais was 22 years old, he was already one famous and successful person who can communicate well to foreign businessmen all over the world.
He was indeed very passionate about what he is doing in his life, which is why there is no doubt why he uplifted their family business into a trusted contracting, distributing, trading, and manufacturing company. He even recalled how we build everything almost from nothing.
When his career was still on the state of growing, he was given a chance to supply equipment for electrical use for a department in the government.
The reason why Al Nowais is successful in his career is that he improved his knowledge and skills regularly.
Al Nowais was even clever enough to think that it is good to have a food business when the Gulf War began. He even bought dying businesses and restructured them, making them reach the pick again.
Even up to this very day, he is still showing everyone in the whole wide world how possible it is to succeed for such a long time.
