Success in Business through Perseverance
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.
The experiences of Hussain al Nowais in his younger days have inspired him to succeed in order reach his dreams.
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. 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.
Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.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.
Al Nowais’ family only returned to Abu Dhabi, along with other families, when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president of UAE. 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. The business was good, making their family have a trade organisation.
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. 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.
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 recalled how we build everything almost from nothing.
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.
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. By acquiring businesses that are already failing, he found ways to restructure and make them rise again.
And up to this day, he is still showing and sharing his excellence, such as having Federal Foods.
