From a personal perspective, launching this podcast series was a business idea. I started it not only to bring value for other people but also to earn money myself by utilizing the social media forums.

For the business to be successful, it was essential to make people aware of my podcasts and different channels it was aired on. Through this entire experience, I learnt my mistakes and am working upon relaunching the courses.
