Dubai: “Never give up on your dreams because they do come true,” said Donna Benton, who recently sold a majority stake of her Dubai company for a whopping Dh367 million.
Benton, founder and chief executive officer of the Entertainer, sold a 85 per cent stake in her Dubai-based company to GFH Financial Group, a Bahrain-based financial group.
However, the exact value of the contract was not revealed.
The 43-year-old Australian took to social networking sites to talk about the proud moment of signing the multi-dirham contract in front of her two children at home.
As Benton signed over a majority stake in the company that she has worked so hard for during the last 17 years, she described the moment as: “Emotional as I reflect on where I started in 2001 to where the Entertainer is today. Never give up on your dreams because they do come true."
"Signing the deal at home with the two people I love so much couldn’t have made me happier. It’s the journey that makes you the person you are today,” wrote Benton on her Instagram post.
Last Sunday, Benton took to the airwaves to confirm that the final deal was indeed in the nine digits, and residents from across the UAE tuned in to listen to her inspiring success story.
