What’s this blog about?

This blog is about what I am learning in my businesses, and my quest to create value. I hope you'll find some!

I’m pleased to note that by definition, at least 2 of my companies are in line with Jeff Bezos’s philosophy, Makhsoom (which negotiates the largest possible discount for its subscribers) and, which is specialized in helping customers find the cheapest possible accommodation in any destination.

As for the others, we try to find a reasonable balance between adding maximum value to our customers and charging an appropriate price, but I will be thinking of ways to apply Jeff’s mantra wholeheartedly to these businesses too.
