Making Money Rain for Your Business
Businesses normally face challenges, which are not an issue for Hussain al Nowais, the managing director and chairman of the famous Emirates Holdings, known for making dying companies live again and even succeed. There might be a lot of questions in your mind regarding the ways on how this UAE Businessman bloomed in this kind of business.
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.
Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.There was a norm before that people leave Abu Dhabi and go to Saudi Arabia or Qatar to get out from a difficult kind of life.
When Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became president of UAE, a lot of families have returned, including the family of Al Nowais. 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.
When Al Nowais completed his high school in a school in Abu Dhabi, he then went to the U.S. in order to resume his education.
After finishing a business administration course in the U.S., he was totally filled with wisdom and might, which gave him the courage to go back home in order to practice what he has learned. In 1978, Al Nowais was known to be one out of few who was able to study outside UAE and was able to successfully communicate with businessmen from different countries.
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 remembered how he made everything possible by starting from scratch.
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. 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.
