Mark Sham โ€“ Everyoneโ€™s winging it (don’t be discouraged)

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 doesnโ€™t cater to everyone. In this episode, Charles talks more to Mark about informal approaches to effective learning.

The two also chat about Markโ€™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.
