Making Money Rain for Your Business
Challenges in business are no match to the capabilities of Hussain al Nowais, who is the managing director and chairman of the Emirates Holdings, making low companies boom in no time. It will be such an honor to know the success story behind this amazing UAE Businessman.
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 that their lives have already improved, it is evident how much they earned through their sacrifices.
He shared that back in the 1950s, drinking purified drinking water is already a kind of luxury while having an air conditioner for a room is just unthinkable. Abu Dhabi looked like a village with no citizens, as Hussain al Nowais described it before. His family stays in Corniche before, and Al Husn was the former name of its centre.
Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.The norm before was to migrate to a different place, like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to be able to survive.
Many families, which included the family of Al Nowais, decided to come back to Abu Dhabi when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president. When they came back, their family was blessed after Al Nowai’s grandfather became a foodstuff and material trader instead of remaining from his past job as a pearl merchant. The business was good, making their family have a trade organisation.
Al Nowais continued schooling in the United States of America after finishing high school in his beloved place, 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. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.
One of the biggest events in his career that made their business grew more and more was when he was able to have a contract for a certain government department in supplying electrical equipment.
He earned his success through acquiring skills and knowledge and continuously improving them along the way.
Al Nowais was even clever enough to think that it is good to have a food business when the Gulf War began. By acquiring businesses that are already failing, he found ways to restructure and make them rise 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.
