Interview with ARQAAM.AD (@arqaam.ad)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I had received the yearly bonus from my work, and did not know what to do with the money. I found a number plate, which was special and expensive. After a week, i found a buyer for it for higher price. In other words, i made profit and an amazing investment. So I continued buying and selling, for which i needed a platform for. And instagram was the perfect platform..

Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?

I have made amazing relationships, friends, and memories. Even when i buy a number from a customer in need of cash, they thank me a lot for helping them ending their need of cash. The customers always thank the honesty that we deal with. Even my VP at work, who has retired contacted me for numbers without knowing who i was. And when i told him who i was, he felt proud that i am doing a side business beside my work.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

I advice them to be humble, patient, honest, trustworthy, and always deal with customer with respect and give them the priority.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My father was the greatest help, as he provided me with accommodation which reduced the cost of living a lot. He has also helped me to think right, and estimate the price of the car number plates. Moreover, my uncle Khalfan, who spent hours with me thinking a name of my account, how to design the logo, how to attract customers and so more.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the World? 

When i buy a number from a customer, some of them sell because they need the cash for something else. We try to be as generous as possible so they get a good price. Moreover, when we met with the customer, if he/she have any issue regarding the formalities that we know of, we spend hours with them and try to save them effort, hustle and money.

Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

When we lose money in the business, I remember what my best friend always says “thank god the hardship came on my wealth, not my health”.
