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. Abu Dhabi looked like a village with no citizens, as Hussain al Nowais described it before. 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.
Many families, which included the family of Al Nowais, decided to come back to Abu Dhabi when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president. 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 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.
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.
Even the beginning of Gulf War was seen by Al Nowais as a chance to begin a food business, because of its necessity. His brilliance even made him acquire some businesses that are dying, wherein he restructured them and made them earn a lot once 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.
