Working independently has so many benefits, but we're curious to know what it is that you value the most?

How much value do you put on the people you work with - your team, clients, partners, suppliers?

Customs and logistics paperwork are a common source of stress and frustration for smaller companies and independents. How much do you know about the process? https://t.co/SsUz0eWjXY

There are a lot of misconceptions about working for yourself. When it comes down to it, what do you spend most of your time doing? (Is it something we could help with??) 😉

What do you love most about working in Dubai?

Words to remember - every mistake is a lesson! Like if you can empathise with that sentiment!
