Paul Evans, we salute you! What a great time we had on this episode of The DubaiLife Podcast! Paul's story has the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster for sure! It is a tremendous story of incredible highs and at times unfathomable lows! But he's here now and has put his stamp on "DubaiLife" with brands such as Asia Aisa, Q43, Wavehouse, Karma Cafe, Lock Stock & Barrel and STK Downtown!
From early setbacks with dyslexia and bullying to finding big success in the fast-paced GE Sales arena! Paul set off for Egypt and hit the party life hard. All of this was shortlived as after 18 months of non-stop partying he found himself with acute pancreatitis and in a coma for 77 days. The story surrounding his illness and the coma is a podcast episode in itself! The real change in Paul's life was when he woke up from this coma. This was the inspiration behind the name of his record selling book "When I Woke Up"
After a long recovery, Paul went back to Egypt and grew his business. His company transforming the Egyptian nightlife scene until another set back came in the form of the Arab Spring and the Egyptian Revolution.
It was at this point that Paul with a young family ended up in Dubai and the rest is history!
