Understanding Businesses

Making Money Rain for Your Business

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.

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 that their lives have already improved, it is evident how much they earned through their sacrifices.

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.

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.

Al Nowais’ family only returned to Abu Dhabi, along with other families, when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president of UAE. The grandfather of Al Nowais, who was once a pearl merchant, worked his way and became a building material and foodstuff trader. 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 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 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.

He was indeed very passionate about what he is doing in his life, which is why there is no doubt why he uplifted their family business into a trusted contracting, distributing, trading, and manufacturing company. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.

When his career was still trying to grow, one event that he considers as the turning point was when he got a contract for a department in the government in supplying equipment for electrical use.

He earned his success through acquiring skills and knowledge and continuously improving them along the way.

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.

In this very moment, he is still sharing his knowledge to many and earning more money, especially that Federal Foods is under his name.
