Laws of success are drawn from within. Listen to your heart and follow the way. We are the greatest hurdles to our successes,” says Nicole Rodrigues, the super successful dynamo who runs Diva Models, Diva Beauty Salon, Diva Laundry and NM Investments.

Mother-of-two, this Indian-born entrepreneur boasts over 18 years of experience as a model, booker, manager and agency founder and now with a real-estate investment fund under her belt, Nicole is somewhat of a Tyra Banks in the making. “Last year was amazing and I learned to be as adaptable as possible – a true chameleon.”

Nicole loves her life in the UAE but admits people have misconceptions about the region. “People think it’s fake and shallow. I think the UAE is the real deal and gives the life that everyone wishes for. It’s safe, and secure and full of opportunity… I don’t understand when people complain!”
