Start helping the poor people

leave a comment »

Irrespective of from where you are you can change the life of a lot of people around by joining the charity activities organized by the leading charity workers in the world. Don’t think that charity is just the money you give them, it is also the quality time that you spend with the needy people giving them calm and comfort with your deeds and words. Providing the needy with food, shelter, clean water, life-saving health services, and safety from violence and abuse will give you immense happiness says people like Ali Sharaf, a leading business man from Texas. People like him have become matchless inspirations by giving as much as they can to the poor people around the world. We should always take them as role models and should be on the forefront of all the activities which are done for a good cause.   I do agree that we don’t have the wealth that the noted business men and celebrities may have; still we can do a lot. If you don’t have enough money to donate try to give your time. You can work as a volunteer and help organizations that work for poor people.  There are plenty charity organizations that need your help. After serving people who are less fortunate you will change a lot and will become more caring loving and highly forgiving. So start helping people around you!

Charity & business, do they go hand in hand?

leave a comment »

Yes, they do. Because there are a lot of business men in this world who dedicate considerable amount of time for charity works. They work all day long and have busy day to day schedules, yet spend a good amount of time to get themselves involved in the various charity works that change the lives of the poor and the needy by bringing them food, shelter, education, job, medical aids and a lot more. Many of these people have that so called magical healing touch that can easily fill the cracks of poverty sadness and disappointment that millions of people around the world have. Even though most of them have a craving for the so called glitzy and glamorous world, they also do spend much for people who are deprived of such happiness in their lives.  Business men like, Ali Sharaf, from Texas, are very close to commoners and understand their problems easily. Also many of them are fortunately well aware of the crisis that our world is going through and hence immensely help as much people as they can to eradicate poverty and other such grave issues that the world faces even today, after such a lot of developments happening around us.  Most of them say they get immense happiness working with charity organizations and helping people around the world. Let’s take such people as our role models and do as much as we can to help poor and needy people. Let’s change the world to a better place to live in!

If you start listing a few things that you can’t live without, fuels, both renewable and non renewable, may come in one of the top positions. A day without getting fuels for our cars and bikes would be something really impossible to think about. Thanks to those professional fuel distribution agencies and their owners, like Ali Sharaf from Texas! They are always keen on the careful and timely distribution of fuels so that we don’t run short of fuels. They make sure that the fuel contracts are implemented on time and the needed amount of fuels are distributed properly throughout the state. They securely deliver all the major brands of fuels on time without compromising on the quality of the product delivered.

These companies have contacts with the most reliable and reputable fuel transport carriers in the country and thereby make sure that transport and distribution of fuels are done in an efficient and time bound manner, delivering quality products to their customers. Thus they painstakingly focus on worry free and reliable delivery of fuels. Distribution of gasoline and diesel fuel requires a lot of care and professionalism. Most of the fuel distribution agencies deliver all the major brands of fuels including Exxon/Mobil, Shell, Conoco/Phillips and Valero, along with other unbranded varieties of fuels that we need for our day to day life. Hence it would be really difficult even to think about a day without these fuel distributors. n agencies and their owners, like Ali Sharaf from Texas!

What’s the shortcut to success?

Here is the answer –  Know exactly what you want in life, put your entire mind in to it, and strive hard to achieve it. Passion and hard work always bring a lot of reasons to smile!

 A fine example for this is the story of Ali Sharaf, a veteran business man from Texas, who migrated to US all the way from Damascus in Syria, looking for the booming opportunities in business.  Some of you might not have heard of Ali Sharaf, or might have ignored him saying he is just one among those thousands of Syrians who migrate in search of a living.  But story of Ali Sharaf is different by all respects.

 Ali Sharaf was born in 1957 in Syria to a farmer father and a homemaker mother. After graduating from the famous Damascus University in Syria with a Civil Engineering degree Ali Sharaf wanted to establish himself in the field of engineering and construction and hence started his own company. He worked successfully for about 6 years, before moving to US by 1986. All set to chase his luck, he bought the first Convenience Store that year.

 Convenience Stores as you all know are small and medium sized stores conveniently located and arranged with items like sweets, ice creams, soft drinks, news papers, magazines, processed foods and groceries, which you use in your day-to-day life. Such stores help a lot of people who are busy with day-to-day chores and don’t have time to go for a detailed shopping that often takes a lot of time. Ali Sharaf had big plans in his mind and knew about the growing demand for Convenience Stores. With all his hard work and determination he expanded his business in 10 years by owning 11 successfully running Convenience Stores.

 If you look around you can see that most of the Convenience Stores can be seen inside gas stations.  Travelers who stop near gas stations would often look for washrooms facilities and convenience for buying and having food and drinks. They can get food, drinks, reading material, maps and a lot more close to the gas station itself, without going to a nearby supermarket.  The close proximity of gas stations might have fueled his business ideas, making him expand his business by investing in fuel distribution.

 In 1997, Ali Sharaf bought H&H Oil Co., Inc., a premier Exxon Fuel Distributorship which had annual sales of about twenty million gallons. At the same time he continued to build and acquire Convenience Stores for another nine years. “In 2006, he changed the name of the company to Victron Energy, Inc., and started a new headquarters in Waxahachie, Texas. Since then Victron Energy, Inc. has expanded to distribute fuel for not only ExxonMobil, but also Shell, Chevron, Texaco, Conoco, Valero and other, unbranded fuels. Victron Energy, Inc. now boasts close to three hundred million gallons in annual sales and is still growing with new construction and acquisition of properties.” While people attribute his success to luck, Ali Sharaf’s story, like many other Syrian immigrants, is more one of hard work, determination and sacrifices.

 Ali Sharaf strengthened his business by associating his company with 13 different  and leading food franchises in US like Sonic, Krystal, Denny’s, KFC,Church’s and Subway, . By 2006, Victron had its own brand called Texas Best Smokehouse, giving away some really scrumptious delicacies for the foodies in US. Texas Best Smokehouse thus turned out to become another feather in Ali Sharaf’s cap.

 Texas Best Smokehouse, with all those unique facilities and lip smacking delectable delicacies including barbecue, jerky, smoked meats, and cheeses, as well as its own private brand of candies, jams, nuts, wine and energy drinks, became a roaring success very soon.

 With all his expertise in construction business, he started branching out his businesses into other developments. “He soon developed a 40-acre shopping plaza around I-45 in Seagoville, and a 60-acre plaza in Red Oak, Texas. He also developed a seven acre shopping center, with a Sonic restaurant in Royce City, and another similar project in Carthage, Texas. He has also finished a high-end,310-unit apartment complex near I-35 and Ovilla Road in Red Oak. The same store is repeated in so many towns in Texas, including but not limited to Tyler, Longview, Kilgore, Venus, Burleson, Carthage, Italy, Balch Springs and many more. Ali’s accomplishments continue to contribute to the overall economy of the region; bringing more and more opportunities to the people he serves.”

Ali Sharaf is always passionate about construction and building. He enjoys the happiest moments when “a raw piece of land is turned into a successful project, which can bring economic growth to North Texas, creating additional jobs and enhancing the tax base of the local communities.” “Ali believes in small town American values like hard work, integrity and honesty because these same values were instilled in him as a young man”

 With all these successes Ali Sharaf is always proud of the positive impact he has had on the lives of the people of North Texas. In every location that he goes, Ali Sharaf is always determined to give back his share of service to the community there, with the creation of successful jobs and opportunities. Victron has so far created over 7,000 jobs directly or indirectly in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. With his successful life & business journey, Ali Sharaf always tries to inspire individuals around the world, making them understand the importance of handwork, dedication, and risk involved in the pursuit of one’s dream.
