My Journey Starting an Accounting Firm in Dubai

I moved to Dubai after qualifying as a Chartered Accountant.

I worked for a few years in Dubai. However right before I was about to have my first daughter, I decided to move from having a corporate career to being an entrepreneur. Not only did that give me the flexibility to take care of my child, but also the vision to broaden my horizon and unlock my true potential.

In July 2011, I started Legends Accounting Services in Dubai and today after 8 years we have expanded in different countries.

I had several challenges in this journey but with the support of my family and husband, I kept going. It is not easy being an entrepreneur and running a business for that matter it is not even easy working in a Corporate.

My only goal in sharing my journey is to inspire others to follow your heart and always stay grateful.
