Key Idea: Focus on One Idea at a Time

Ahmad Chebbani's accounting business was strong before he launched other companies.   More...

Key Question:


Ahmad says he can't resist a good idea. It is the entrepreneur's fire, but it can cause problems.

Q: Have you ever met a person who is all ideas and no action?

A: If the answer is "yes" you probably met a person who has never started a business. Just thinking about something gets us no where but frustrated. Most business owners are like Ahmad and have to continuously weigh ideas to decide if they are worth investing time, money and attention to develop. The plague of too many ideas is that it can take us off path so that we never complete or succeed at anything. Fortunately for Ahmad, he stuck with Omnex until it was able to generate the cash needed to start other ventures and to buy real estate.

Think about it

Are you able to stay the course until you achieve difficult goals?

Focus on One Idea at a Time

HATTIE: Hi, I'm Hattie Bryant. Why are there so many people of Arab decent living in America today? It is because America is the home of the brave and the free, and we attract those who are very brave and want so much to live in freedom. Now you'll meet Ahmad Chebbani, the founder of Omnex Accounting, Arabica and a Beirut-based digital imaging company, and a founding member of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce.

He is just one of the millions from war-torn lands who has taught us, without peace there can be no prosperity and with peace, everything good is possible.

Today we go to Dearborn, Michigan where we find the largest concentration of Arab-Americans in the US. They have turned a declining neighborhood into a growing one and Ahmad has been central to the success.

AHMAD: I can never pass a good idea. This is the problem I have. If I have a good idea, I would never just want to drop it. I've owned other businesses; we've sold them. But I like starting up new ideas. Everything I have ever done was original.

HATTIE: In 1987, Ahmad Chebbani and his wife, Michelle, started Omnex Accounting, and today they have 16 employees preparing tax returns for some 3,500 individuals and 600 businesses. The office is located on Warren Street, close to their clients.
