YAP is a very insightful podcast. Hala and her guests always talk about interesting topics that are also very helpful not only to grow our businesses but also to improve our lives. One of my favorite episodes is the interview with Mo Gawdat about the dangers of AI. Great conversation, great questions and answers to prepare us all for the wave of change that is about to reshape our lives.

I love this show! One of my fav episode is with Ramit Sethi where they speak about the psychology of money. There’s so much to learn about finances, self improvement, and being a better version of yourself. Definitely a must listen!!!! 👍

Any SMM failure badly affects the company's reputation and scares away potential customers, and sometimes worsens relationships with loyal ones. Therefore, you should always remember that in social media marketing, the price of a mistake is high.
