Assalamualaikum. We do not need to go anywhere else to look at examples of great entrepreneurs, because we have them here in Malaysia. There are many successful Malaysian entrepreneurs. But, I want to talk about 1 only. The rest of them will be shown in a form of video at the end of this post.
What crosses your mind, when I say Mokhtar al-Bukhary? Ding ding ding! That's right! He is one of the richest entrepreneurs in Malaysia and a very humble one. He has so many companies. The picture and video below describes his work and accomplishments.
Tan Sri Mohktar al-Bukhary
Have I told you that his net worth is $3.1 billion? Yes, that's a big number. I wish I had that much of number in my paycheck. LOL, that's impossible. You want to have a lot of money? Want to be rich. Be an entrepreneur!
Another interesting fact of Syed Mokhtar is back in 2009, "Low-profile tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary and India-based Vavasi Group are buying a majority stake in Zain, Kuwait’s biggest telecommunication company,". [w] WOW! I know, right. Enough said, he is RICH.
Now, how inspired are you to venture yourself in the business world? I know. I'm inspired too. Well, let's find out the rest of Malaysian entrepreneurs through the video below, shall we?
