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, they are already enjoying the good things that they have earned.
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, as Hussain al Nowais described, can be compared to a village with no people. He also mentioned that his family once lives in the area of Corniche, wherein Al Husn was the town’s centre.
The insufficiency of school’s in Abu Dhabi was the reason why Al Nowais went to Qatar to study.This did not only happen to him but to many people before, considering as a norm.
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. Their progress as a family started with Al Nowais’ grandfather who from a pearl merchant became a trader for foodtsuffs and materials. The business was good, making their family have a trade organisation.
Al Nowais went to the U.S. to study after he got his high school diploma from a school in Abu Dhabi.
He has shown great strength and optimism after graduating with a business administration degree in the U.S. by going back to UAE in order to practice his skills. It is so impressive who Al Nowais has lifted his credibility so high, making him succeed even in his early 20’s, wherein he was able to deal with big names in the business 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 trying to grow, one event that he considers as the turning point was when he got a contract for a department in the government in supplying equipment for electrical use.
He earned his success through acquiring skills and knowledge and continuously improving them along the way.
During the Gulf War, Al Nowais saw their food business as something that would succeed because it is needed. His brilliance even made him acquire some businesses that are dying, wherein he restructured them and made them earn a lot once 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.
