Let's Take This Online

Let's Take This Online

By Digital Hoos
Let's Take This Online has undergone a transformation of its own.

Starting off as a podcast purely focused on media and digital marketing, it became something different.

It is now an unscripted, unedited (except for curses) podcast that is about authentic, genuine and raw conversations with individuals of very diverse backgrounds.

Some guests are entrepreneurs, , some are adventurers and music producers and many other professions.

Every guest has been through a journey of their own and this podcast is about deriving value and knowledge from them.

I truly hope you join me on this path!

#64 Document Your Journey
We all love motivational memes and quotes.  We love consuming endless hours of content from our favorite motivational gurus and speakers.   But do we question the advice we are getting?   Is every life coach passing on the right knowledge?   This episode is my thoughts and formulation of ideas on this Billion $ industry.

#63 A Podcast 13 Years in the Making w/ Farrah Berrou
I find friendships interesting, especially comparing the kind of friend I used to be to the one I currently am. Friendships are complex dynamics that change drastically based on your own journey. Some friends drift away while others become closer over time. Farrah is one person, even when I wasn't the greatest friend, that has been there throughout the years. Over 13 of them to be exact! Funny enough, we both ended up podcasting and she has been a great supporter and person I go to for podcast advice. Not only did we discuss podcasts, but I also got to learn a lot more about her work in her wine classes and her love for the industry itself. It was very insightful for me and I hope for you as well.

#61 All Things Podcast w/ Zeina Tabbara
Just because we are in lockdown doesn't mean we can't podcast with guests right?   Finally had Zeina on the podcast where we talked everything podcast-related.   Zeina is a podcast fan and has been closely monitoring the Middle East podcast realm and always has some great advice.   Talking to her, I learned a lot about the business of podcasts and what's popular these days.  I hope you enjoy!

#60 In a Lockdown | Solo Episode
We are in a lockdown!   Dubai has instilled a curfew and 3-day complete lockdown while it sterilizing the city.  So what better way to spend the time than record podcasts?   In this episode, I ask you to share your concerns and outline some of the information I gathered about this outbreak from credible sources. Let's be honest, genuine and authentic. We are still coping with these new changes and that's ok. We are in this together.  Onwards!

#59 Living That Iso Life | First Solo Episode
We are living in strange times.   A mysterious disease has spread itself across the world, people are panicking, lives are being lost, jobs are being lost, and we are social isolating.  Instead of one day, looking back and recording content about this time,  I thought it would be best to do it while we are living it. I wanted to share my feelings and thoughts on what is going on in the world today and hope it resonates with you.   So here it is! My first solo episode. No guest, just me.   Onwards!

#58 Mind Boggling w/ Abz Ali
"A Day Without Laughter is a Day Wasted" - Charlie Chaplin Comedy is awesome, isn't it? There is a special skill to make a room full of people laugh. I have been getting more and more into the comedy world over the years, learning of comics like Theo Von, Chris D'elia, Bryan Callen, Bobby Lee and a ton more from around the world. Only recently have I started learning about the local UAE comedy scene and my first attempt was visiting a local comedy show hosted by Comedy Kix, a UAE comedy club. What brought me there is a story of its own and the result was awesome. One comedian really grasped the attention of the crowd through his crowd work, it had a strong feel of Andrew Schulz, and that was Abz Ali. After the show, I invited Abz on the podcast and when we started recording I knew it was gonna be an interesting one. This one is for the books! I hope you enjoy it and laugh along with us.

#57 Who Am I? w/ Hani Kamel
How authentic are we with our content?  Why do we not share our journey with others?  Do you have value to add?   These are some of the questions this podcast episode tries to answer.   I was fortunate enough to sit down with my closest friend Hani, who I've known for over 20 years. Like so many of us, Hani and I ended living in different countries and continents and it has become rare to have a long-form discussion face to face. This is why this episode is very dear to my heart.   I was finally able to share my thoughts and ideas of this journey I am on for the first time with someone that has known me in my early days.  Not only that, I was able to hear his thoughts and perspectives on many topics and learn more about him.  It was a great episode full of value and I hope to have many more with Hani in the future.   One lesson that I definitely can take away from this is, we all need to put more effort into our relationships as true genuine friends are hard to come by.

#56 I Still Have My IPod w/ Rami Zeidan
"I graduated computer science and day 1 I got a marketing and sales job" So many of us choose an education degree that we are either pushed into or we chose to appease someone else. A big chunk of my podcast guests all studied something that they did not end up practicing in their professional careers. Rami always had a love for music, so even though he studied coding he chose a career path that brought him to what he loved. At the time of this podcast, he was working in Anghami; a music aggregator that is dominant in the Middle East. Now, he is the Head of Video and Creative at TikTok. I met Rami in the podcast world, as he hosts his own podcast, and it was just great to riff and discuss his journey.

#55 Build That Empire w/ Nick Vinckier
Self-awareness.  I have been obsessed with this concept for a while now and discuss it openly with my podcast guests, friends and on social media.   Sometimes in life, you go down a rabbit-hole due to circumstances, your group of friends, or a number of other reasons.   My guest on this episode started his hustle creating a rap group in his hometown to then owning a nightclub at the age of 20.  He had to develop that self-awareness to realize that if he continued down that road, it might take him to a place he did not want to go.   He is currently the Head of Growth at Chalhoub Group after spending many years as Managing Director of Duval Consulting.   Nick found a way to take the learnings of his youth and implement them in his professional life. Listening to that journey was just awesome! You can find Nick here As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: YouTube Instagram Twitter Facebook Newsletter

#54 Buy Buy Buy Buy w/ Pedro Goncalves
You learn a lot from the people you work with, even if you don't think you are.  Some teach you technical stuff, others teach you strategic aspects and even the ones you think suck, they actually teach you as well.  The point is, always learn. Learn from everyone around you. Pedro is one person, that really helped me shape my knowledge of digital media buying; especially the world of programmatic He is an ex-colleague who took the time to riff and discuss aspects that, at the time, were out of my realm of knowledge. So to get him on the podcast and discuss different topics from media to running a beer company and much more was just awesome!

#53 I'm All About the Drop w/ Rayan Bailouni
I first came across Rayan from his Instagram ads playing one of his Beat Labs; the moment I heard that song I was blown away. His Beat Lab series has blown up due to the consistency and creativity of his work. You have to check out the beat he created call Shogun, which will be on his Instagram page. Apart from producing music for artists, Rayan also sings and can be seen across many music events in Dubai. Not only did we talk about music we also delved into our personal journeys in life, the importance of self-awareness and a ton of other topics. I really hope you enjoy this episode as I had an awesome time talking to Rayan.

#52 At Home Anywhere w/ Rachael Lynn
It is always awesome having an author on the podcast. The process they follow to write, edit and publish a book is a long and difficult one and is full of lessons that I want to derive.  I first was introduced to Rachael through social media, where she is active and constantly posting valuable content. Once her book was released I got a copy and started reading, and I truly enjoyed it.  At Home Anywhere is Rachael's journey to Dubai and the constant moves she did before, and most importantly the lessons she learned and hopes to share with us. It was great speaking to her and I recommend this episode to everyone out there Rachael's Instagram   Website   Free Chapter of her book As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: YouTube Instagram Twitter Facebook Newsletter

#51 Just Kidding...Not Really w/ Muzammil Hamza
Another great time recording with a friend and ex-colleague. Muzammil and I have known each other for many years but never had the chance to sit down and just talk.

S02 E49 - Jayde Vincent
It is quite rare, or at least not as frequent, to see a social media influencer who utilizes LinkedIn to its full extent. More so even, when that person is from a younger generation.  This is exactly what caught my eye about Jayde. Not only is she a verified creator on TikTok and has over 1.2M, but her utilization of LinkedIn is one that most adults seem to be lacking in. She literally is everywhere on LinkedIn! I've seen her dropping daily posts, she actually has a great series of ABC's of TikTok, she appears on a ton of podcasts as well as collabs with individuals across the platform. It was great to record an episode with her and I am excited to see her success in the future. https://www.tiktok.com/@jaydecandance https://www.linkedin.com/in/jaydevincent/ As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/digitalhoos/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/digitalhoos LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hussam-el-hage-42566230/ Sign Up to the LTTO Newsletter Here: https://mailchi.mp/6f383cc738de/lttosignup

S02 E47 - Mark Hirst
I found that in order to grow you must first acknowledge what you don't know. Pretending to know something for the sake of a conversation will bring no value in the long run. Once you can understand that you do not truly know something, you can venture ahead to gather the knowledge and information to grow your aptitude. SEO and website design have always been realms where I lacked knowledge. My strength was always in SEM (Search Engine Marketing or Paid Search) and SEO was not in my scope. Over many podcast episodes, I was able to gather different experts on the field and learn first hand about how they go about these unknown worlds (to me). Mark Hirst is one of those people. He is currently the MD of Blue Beetle, which is an agency that provides clients with services in digital, website and SEO. https://www.linkedin.com/in/mphirst/ As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/digitalhoos/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/digitalhoos LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hussam-el-hage-42566230/ Sign Up to the LTTO Newsletter Here: https://mailchi.mp/6f383cc738de/lttosignup

S02 E46 - Saana Azzam
I had stage fright when I was younger, as it was a reflection of my confidence issues. One decision I am proud of myself to have taken is forcing myself to be on a stage, through the enrollment in a drama class. That really set the stage for me in the growth of my confidence in the future. Today, I really enjoy public speaking; even though I still get pre-speaking jitters. I embrace them though and I use them to be excited throughout my talk. However, I am still learning about the realm of public speaking and what it takes to speak professionally. Saana is one who is very well versed in this world. She is the founder of MENA Speakers(among being a speaker herself), which is a  speaker and MC Bureau in the Middle East. They aim to provide speakers and trainers for a variety of events and training across the region. Her journey into founding MENA Speakers is quite interesting and I really enjoyed exploring her learnings across the way. Definitely reach out if you want to explore speaking, becoming or hiring a speaker. https://mena-speakers.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/saanaazzam/ Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to get up to date episodes.

Do you know those guys who travel around the world and film documentaries? We all have had that dream, of quitting our jobs and doing just that. However, we don't see the years of work and effort these adventurers put and the obstacles they have to overcome. Ryan Pyle is one of those guys.

S02 E41 - Neal Patel
The best thing about this podcast is talking to individuals who know something I don't. SEO is a realm that I never dove into, as I always stayed on the paid search part of the game. Talking to Neal was awesome as he is so knowledgeable about the subject and explains it quite well. This conversation was organic in itself where we explored different topics and aspects of Neal's expertise. He currently is the MD over at Bruce Clay MENA, which one of the top SEO agencies in the region/world. I knew Neal earlier in his career and his rise to his current position is definitely a reflection of the work he put in to learn a ton in his field. Definitely a topic to explore, especially if SEO is something you know nothing about. https://www.linkedin.com/in/patel-neal/ https://bruceclaymena.com/ As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/digitalhoos/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/digitalhoos LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hussam-el-hage-42566230/ Sign Up to the LTTO Newsletter Here: https://mailchi.mp/6f383cc738de/lttosignup

Vimal is currently the VP of Performance at Merkle EMEA with a strong background in media. I have always been quite outspoken about my viewpoints on the media industry when it comes to the client fee structure, the culture, and the hiring process; and it was really refreshing to hear someone in a senior position agree and voice similar thoughts. Vimal and the Merkle team are trying to change the way the standard agency works on many levels and we went on many tangents that I absolutely loved. This is one of those podcasts that allow me to formulate and shape my ideas further and it was great to bounce off of Vimal You can find and reach out to Vimal below as I am sure he is up to discuss the podcast topics further. https://www.linkedin.com/in/vimalbadiani/ As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/digitalhoos/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/digitalhoos LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hussam-el-hage-42566230/ Sign Up to the LTTO Newsletter Here: https://mailchi.mp/6f383cc738de/lttosignup

Sami is an emotion & body code practitioner where he removes trapped emotions, traumatic experiences and other imbalances from people's lives. It was really interesting speaking to him about his journey and how he got through his own experiences and overcome problems. One thing that I learned in this podcast is that in life you will speak to others that have different beliefs and practice things you don't practice. It is about having a conversation, listening and trying to take and add value. I hope you enjoy this podcast! http://www.startfeelingfree.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/sami-fakhreddine-165073191/ As always, I'm Digital Hoos and you can find me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/digitalhoos/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/digitalhoos LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hussam-el-hage-42566230/ Sign Up to the LTTO Newsletter Here: https://mailchi.mp/6f383cc738de/lttosignup
