Mark Sham is the founder of Suits and Sneakers, an informal, online, education platform. He also presents the travel channel, Like a Tourist (Act like a tourist in your own city)
Mark believes that there are many ways to become an expert. While formal education has its place, it doesn’t cater to everyone. In this episode, Charles talks more to Mark about informal approaches to effective learning.
The two also chat about Mark’s unique hiring practices, the time and effort it takes to create content and build a name, and how quickly life can throw small businesses a curve ball. Mark also shares his joy in inspiring fellow South Africans to explore their home country.
