If you know Tamer Hassan, you know that both online and offline, he (and his family) provide motivation, inspiration and positive energy to others as much as they can. I really appreciate how honest and open this podcast is. It’s very relatable, but still extremely inspiring. Thank you to Tamer and Belle. Looking forward to more!
