Haysam’s advice for aspiring entrepreneurs

 

He said, when speaking to those wanting to launch their own business, he would tell them: “To learn when to say ‘no’.” He elaborated: “I mean in this chaotic world it’s pretty tempting to develop a way of saying no to certain things and obviously differentiating between grabbing the right opportunities and letting go on different occasion.”

 

The meaning of travelling

 

The business owner said: “Travelling enriches my soul, so I can say it connects me with other people and different cultures. I believe there are always opportunities to learn something.”

 

His life mottos 

 

Haysam shared both his personal and professional motto with a&e. The latter is: “Be accountable for your actions and be responsible – it’s only you who is responsible for your actions.”

 

Haysam’s dad is his biggest inspiration 

 

The Eid hairdressing talent didn’t begin with him. Haysam’s dad, Younes Eid is the owner of Salon Younes Eid in Beirut, Lebanon. Of him, the entrepreneur said: “First and foremost must be my father who inspires me. It probably sounds like a cliché but honestly, he does. He started his journey from nothing and he built it up to the top… You know the achievement he made in his career and his determination, it’s thanks to him I’m doing what I’m doing to today… He’s been a real example to me.”

 

What he would tell himself in 10 years

 

“I’d like to think that I’m proud I followed my gut, I so much believe in gut feeling and… when it comes to decision making, I follow my guts and I’d like to be proud of that in 10 years time with no regrets.”
