Ussefsa3d ,

Everything about this podcast is amazing!

I am just blown away by the quality of the podcast, there isn’t a single episode that doesn’t leave me motivated & inspired, the host is more than amazing and the guests are always dropping so much value.

This podcast is great for any Muslim interested in entrepreneurship, whether they already have their own business and want to improve or aspire to be an entrepreneur.

Personally, I believe that this podcast is even beneficial to Muslims who aren’t necessarily interested in entrepreneurship because the advice shared can be applied in all areas of life, this podcast has it all!
