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.
In an interview, Hussain al Nowais shared that he has experienced the hardships of their parents back then. And truly time will come that you will reap what you saw, especially that they are now more than capable to sustain themselves due to hard work.
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.
Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.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. 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.
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 finished a business administration degree in the United States of America and then practices it right away in the UAE, wherein his heart and soul were filled with optimism and bright ideas. 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.
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.
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.
In this very moment, he is still sharing his knowledge to many and earning more money, especially that Federal Foods is under his name.
