Interview with Khaled Yousif (@limitedgallery)

35

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

Its a passion, since I was little kid my dad used to take me with him to India, Thailand, Indonesia to buy raw materials for perfumes such as ambergris, musk, agarwood, oud oils, etc.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

More than 20 years ago I start a home business called Limited Gallery to sell vintage and rare and niche fragrances on wallpapers, eBay, my old page. After 3 years of success, I decided to open a small but I did not have enough money so I borrowed some from my dad and I opened a very small shop in Abu Dhabi.

 I started visiting and attending Exhibition in order to make the connection and to get to know more about Niche Business and now I’m one of the biggest and leading perfume shops in the UAE as I own 6 huge stores in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain ane Ras Al Khaimah.

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

Working hard to study the market carefully check the market needs and the location and recruit well-trained staff.

None of us are able to achieve success 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? 

Yes, my dad who passed away last year was my teacher and supporter. As I stated he was talking to me all over the world to buy raw materials for Fragrances. 

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

Sure, I always support people by donating, building mosques, waters, support poor families. Guiding a new generation to start a business.

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

Stephen King said, “get busy living or get busy dying”.
