HoHoHo, it’s December! It's feeling a lot cooler in Dubai, now all we need is some rain and maybe some snow to make the season truly festive.

We’re just coming out of a long holiday weekend to celebrate the UAE’s 50th birthday. The Golden Jubilee, or quinquagenary, was celebrated across the country December 2. We're so proud to call the UAE our home!

December is always a good time to review and reflect on the year that has gone by, and a time to express gratitude, even for those difficult experiences. It is through those that we learn some of the most influential lessons in our lives.

We thought this would be a good time to listen to Mohammed Al Balooshi, the UAE’s athlete of the year in 2018, who shares his unique personal story of discipline and dedication. His most difficult moments landed up defining him as a person and his journey into entrepreneurship.
