Success in Business through Perseverance
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. 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. Hussain al Nowais even compared Abu Dhabi to a village that is deserted back then. His family stays in Corniche before, and Al Husn was the former name of its 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.
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. 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.
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. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.
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.
By improving his acquired skills and knowledge, he became successful in his chosen career.
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.
