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. 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.
Hussain al Nowais shared that back in the days, they saw the sacrifices 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. Hussain al Nowais even compared Abu Dhabi to a village that is deserted back then. 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.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. 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. That was the beginning of their family business, which is an organisation for trade.
Al Nowais continued schooling in the United States of America after finishing high school in his beloved place, Abu Dhabi.
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.
Along with his dedication, intelligence, luck, and commitment, he was able to evolve their family business into a well-known contracting, trading, distributing, and manufacturing company, which is not limited in UAE. He even remembered how he made everything possible by starting from scratch.
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.
The reason why Al Nowais is successful in his career is that he improved his knowledge and skills regularly.
Even the beginning of Gulf War was seen by Al Nowais as a chance to begin a food business, because of its necessity. By acquiring businesses that are already failing, he found ways to restructure and make them rise again.
In this very moment, he is still sharing his knowledge to many and earning more money, especially that Federal Foods is under his name.
