In the past, many were asking themselves why they should pursue truly challenging goals, Dubai was only asking, why not? So should we.
Before you ask how to grow, first ask why. To live the life you love, find your purpose, then let that drive your career, relationships and everything in between.
Dubai resides at the intersection of too many cultures to name. There is no replacement for the lessons you can learn and the experiences you can have when you embrace the myriad of cultures around you.
65% of the population of the Middle East is under 25. As you take time to ensure the leaders of tomorrow grow to do great things, pause to appreciate the drive and enthusiasm that young people bring to the table.

Growth does not come without growing pains—and in places like Dubai, we all share these pains. But we share success too. I share both my struggles and success with you so we can talk about growth together.
