LIVE AND LEARN: AMBAREEN MUSA
Making life easier for the consumer is really important to me. Being caught out as I was with that car loan still annoys me until today - how did I not know that? I want to help people avoid that feeling.
What’s your mantra or catchphrase?
‘Now!’ is consistently something I say. But seriously, it would be ‘keep the passion’. Keep the fire inside you. Get things done, get things moving, move on and adapt.
Best thing about a day at Souqalmal.com?
Seeing the team so proud of what they do and what they have achieved.
Hardest thing about your job?
Motivating the team is one of the hardest things I do. As an entrepreneur, you tend to be singleminded. You just go out there and get things done.
Piece of advice to a future you?
One thing that has helped me is the ability to network and the ability to ask for help. I have always had a philosophy to open up, talk, ask for help, let people in. You can’t do it alone. And don’t give up so quickly.
