Episode 33: A Chat With Her Excellency Dr. Sara Al Madani On Taking That Risk And Starting Your Business In The Age of Covid
Her Excellency, Dr. Sara Al Madani is one of the realest people that I have had the opportunity to meet. She’s a fashion designer, serial entrepreneur, member of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (for those who don’t know, Sharjah, is one of the UAE’s seven emirates). But above all her professional accomplishments, Sara is kind. This comes from a deep love of herself, which isn’t narcissistic, but, in knowing God and being guided by Him. All of this is coupled with knowing and respecting herself, which results in her having a love of humanity. When she is able, she gives of herself by sharing tips and wisdom to inspiring entrepreneurs.
We discuss taking that risk and starting your business in the age of Covid. The Pandemic has left a lot of people jobless and some might be considering starting a business, but don't feel confident or feel like they have the tools to be an entrepreneur. We chat about the necessary tools to start a business; how to know if the person you're thinking to partner with to be a business partner is the right person; what else is needed (being emotional, mentally, and socially equipped) to start a business; and, Sara share what she wishes she had known before starting her first business, which, you will find her response surprising.
