Business Advices and Q&A
Mohamad Al Sheikh Suliman answers some of the most popular questions a lot of us have, and generously gives some tips for anyone seeking to start a business or improve an already existing one.
What is the definition of SUCCESS ?
According to Mohamad Al Sheikh, success is not merely achieving a goal by any means necessary, but it is in fact setting an end goal, and walking towards that goal, with each step bringing 100% of self-gratification.
Mohamad Al Sheikh also explains that, in his opinion, the opposite of success is not failure. Failure shows that the person has at least set a goal, tried to achieve it, but unfortunately not achieved the anticipated results. As long as the person has put some work into achieving a certain goal, not being able to attain it is not being unsuccessful. This person will eventually reach their goal and achieve success. Al Sheikh explains that the opposite of success is a plain person without any goals or aspirations. This person will never achieve success because they don’t have a goal and they’re not putting any energy into anything.
How to choose what Business to invest in ?
Mohamad Al Sheikh is very adamant about investing in more than just one type of business. He personally has several businesses in a variety of niches. He owns one of the biggest Online Trading Companies, controls about 90% of the meat industry in Turkey, and has invested over $7 million in about 44 different companies and startups.
Mohamad Al Sheikh’s strategy before making any investments is to ask yourself, what is the purpose of this investment? He goes further on to explain that there are two main purposes for investments: Either to increase your capital, or to earn a consistent monthly or annual source of income. Once you set your financial goal, it would be much easier to decide which niche and what type of business to venture into.
Al Sheikh then explains that one of the biggest reasons why one should consider investing in more than just one type of business is to minimize the risk. Of course, starting a business is not exactly a breeze. There is no guarantee that this business will take off and there are several factors that can and can’t be controlled. In order to minimize the risk of losing the capital in one try, investing in a variety of businesses will give you a higher chance of success and more chances.
