Meanwhile, Mark Sham - founder and CEO of Suits & Sneakers - believes that the internet has fundamentally changed the world and as a result, we can now learn about almost anything, at any time, in any location, and at virtually no cost. This form of learning is called informal education and Mark is passionate about showing the masses how to use this alternative way of learning to hack the value creation system.
Before founding Suits & Sneakers in 2015, Mark was a prolific entrepreneur who founded a host of businesses but ultimately, he realised that he wasn’t cut out for most of them and worked toward building Suits & Sneakers.
In this candid discussion, he and Good Things Guy Brent Lindeque talk about everything from Mark's lockdown government rant, which went viral; to his business journey along the years - to happiness, which is Mark's new mission. Listen to the JacPod podcast below.
