When you say Inshallah, it means you will do your absolute best and unless there is some form of divine intervention that stops you. God wants you to do your best, not use the phrase as an excuse! Otherwise a meteor might fall on your head!

#QTip: What does Wasta mean?


It's time to talk Wasta. What's it all about and what does it mean?

Wasta means connection. Many people use their relationships and connections to get an advantage in a situation. Sometimes it could be as simple as using a Wasta to get an opportunity, or sometimes it could be to get a premium location for a shop you want to open. 

#QTip: The last piece

#QTip: Offering the last piece


Check back EVERY SUNDAY! In this episode of #QTips, it's about offering the last piece.
