OPPORTUNITY DON’T HAPPEN,
You create them
In March 2019, I came back to the UAE. I joined a networking group, it was my first network group meeting in the UAE. I was so nervous and was even thinking to cancel my visit to it. But after talking to my self a few seconds I decided to go. I didn’t know the people but I was so happy I went to this meeting. I enjoyed it so much and met new people, some of them are now my friends. I told the people about our company and what we do, they liked the concept. The people gave me more motivation and some people even let me meet with there business relatives.
I was so busy with networking and meeting new people again. It was very nice, eating & drinking but the real work wasn’t finished yet, the registration for my company, my company licenses!
One of the requirements to start your own company is an office. So I had to look for an office space. I was looking on the internet for office space and I found one! So I sent an email to the owner of the office space and in a short time, they came back to me. I could see the office space on the same day ( that’s a big difference with Holland, it is almost impossible to make an appointment for the same day). So I went to see the office, oh my god I was so excited it was on the 27th floor and a view on the Burj Khalifa. The office was established in the Business Bay, so it was a great place for an office. It was the first time I met Business Bay. The rate was good so I made my choice very fast and took the office space! But certainly it was not only the rate what made my choice took fast, but it was also the kind people of the office and there help. They helped me with a PRO who helped me so much with setting up my company. This guy was so helpful to me and still, he is. He arranged everything for me for such a good price, he even did extra without payment. Those people are valuable!
The office I rent was a shared office, but it was no problem of course. Everything starts small.
I get my licenses and it was again a few steps forward, proud of my self and happy with the people who motivated me and one of them where my parents and children.
I went back to Holland and prepared my next journey to the UAE in June 2019.
