“Idea is the key and devotion is the route – entrepreneur needs passion to achieve goals” says Hatim Shabbir Hussain Dabbawala, CEO, Bohra Developers who started his journey with a job with a media group rather than an Engineering  company, soon after completion of BE in Computer systems from NED.

After working for 4 years with e-Publication DAWN, he started thinking on the lines of transitioning from job to his own business. To kick start, he started working on the financial plan and initiated the saving process which would give him the financial cushion to run down his daily expenses, when he would lean to his own business. According to him, this support was helpful during his first 3 years of business life.

His game plan was to deliver the best to his organization till the time he was working there and started developing strong network which would complement as a growth to his own business. Industry started knowing him for his thirst of completion and he penetrated the zones of e-culture by proving smart work habits of efficient round the clock working. BohraDevelopers today serves customers from Singapore to United States and has a team that works hard to satisfy the client’s needs. This fishing and furnishing of customers added the viral marketing edge and gained a business PR which is worth mentioning.

“Doing the best in this moment will put you in the best place for the next moment”. Oprah Gail Winfrey

He knew that making the leap from “working for the man” to “doing your own thing” can often seem impossible. It suddenly happened that he got a chance to visit Abu Dhabi and meet with EZware technologies. 9/11 blocked new visa processes for Pakistanis and Hatim had to return. While leaving from there he got a franchise offer from EZWare Technology to work for them in Pakistan. This was again a big opportunity as that franchise was converted into a potential client after completion of basic job. All coins started fixing well; in place and on time.

Starting with one designer and 2 computers this journey started in 1999 and today he has a team of 23 engineers working on many technology sets and focused to serve the industry with innovative ideas. From cyber editor @ dawn to CEO @ bohradevelopers.  He enjoyed the career move and is now inspiring others.

BohraDevelopers’ slogan is “committed to deliver excellence”.

Entrepreneur needs to think out of the box to achieve the milestones else they would be found dipped in various problems.  Despite of various socio-political conditions and economic challenges in Pakistan, BD is sailing well. With projects from Houston, Dallas, Dubai, Nairobi, Berlin, Jeddah and other locations in the world; BD has a good queue built for its brand image across the globe.

Strong network has resulted in developing the customer base of above 300 clients and have resulted in dealing with above 900 projects. BD has got 65 domains of dawn.com and has done more than 20 projects for the same client.

Hatim suggests hard work and sincerity to assignments is the key to success. As BD has to learn every day – there are times when we fail – an old rhyme from good days make us feel brave and come back – Lets recite it together.

’Tis a lesson you should heed,  Try, try again.  If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try again”.

At last, Hatim’s blog as an entrepreneur gives lessons of continuity and sincerity – IT is growing multi folds. This is the time when BD needs to plan growth in a smart way.

I met Hatim way back at Dawn, in connection with placing banner advertisement on Dawn website for the company i was working then. No wonder, Hatim has progressed excellently (Mashallah). I am also forwarding the link to this blog to one of my friend working in the IT field who wants to be an entrepreneur himself. As usual, another good blog post from the Master blogger Hammad.

Hatim, the person mentioned is my uncle, though I knew that he was succeeding on every leap, but he also makes sure how to enjoy and not to get exhaust by the Hard Work he does. For me his every step forward is mentor in self.
