“I stand tall because I am a nobody” is the essence of my life. I have learnt not to carry the weight of being a son, a husband, a father, an employee, an entrepreneur or for that matter anything at all on my shoulders.
I strongly believe in the power of effort, which reflects in my outlook and thinking and I realize that the results are not in my control. My definition of success is the realization that you are a ‘nobody’. In the bigger picture one is a mere pawn, making the moves based on the circumstances, be it success or failure.
My thinking is shaped by the way people from around the world deal with daily situations in life. My experiences have come from being receptive to the flavors of different cultures. I believe in minimalistic living and have designed my life to do more with less.
My identity doesn’t make a difference, because it’s the content that matters. I don’t accept things at it’s face value unless a reasonable answer for my ‘why’ is received, which perhaps is the third perspective.
I am the Chief Executive Officer of Big Boys Toys – The Innovation and luxury lifestyle exhibition (www.bbtvegas.com).
I have over 25 years of diverse experience which includes 14 years of running a corporate event management company, Artaaj events in Dubai (www.artaaj.com).
Artaaj events was set up in 2003, which grew to a team with over 24 nationalities. This gave me the unique opportunity to see life through the lens of people from different cultures thereby helping me develop a third perspective.
