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. 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.
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. His family stays in Corniche before, and Al Husn was the former name of its centre.
Since the education in Abu Dhabi before was not that high, Al Nowais traveled to Qatar to be able to get into a school.The norm before was to migrate to a different place, like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to be able to survive.
Al Nowais’ family only returned to Abu Dhabi, along with other families, when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president of UAE. 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.
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 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.
With his outstanding capabilities as a leader, he has successfully made their business fly, which finally became a famous distributing, manufacturing, trading, and contracting company. 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.
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. His brilliance even made him acquire some businesses that are dying, wherein he restructured them and made them earn a lot once 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.
