One of the options to consider when thinking of postgraduate education is the opportunity to pursue an MBA (Master of Business Administration).
As an entrepreneur who has set up several startups but also studied a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship, I find myself wondering if an MBA would be of value to me.
Lifestyle (Life Currently & Community Events)
(In case you missed it) I share on my business journey – what started out as a small lifestyle blog in 2013 eventually turned into a quarter+ million dollar business, that is growing.
Over the past few years, I have learnt SO much about the tech sector, but also the media sector. In this video, I go into detail of how I set up my blog, and how I worked with my friends and colleagues to create what is soon to be one of the most notable businesses in Malawi.

GMAC New York City MBA Tour
As someone who has built s everal startups and studied entrepreneurship at postgrad level, the question for me has been ‘would an MBA be of value to me?’
I joined 38 Universities yesterday at the MBA Tour as was hosted by the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) at The Westin in New York City. I learnt a lot about MBAs and the schools that offer them. I go into detail re what I learnt yesterday at the MBA Tour – why I think an MBA might not be for me, and potentially why it just might be for you!
In this era of digital media, there are endless benefits to building and having a strong personal brand as a professional. The question is often “What is Personal Branding?“
A few reasons to become a personal brand: 1. You position yourself as a force in your industry, 2. You attract opportunities, 3. You minimise imposter syndrome, 4. You (can) become selectively famous, 5. You increase your confidence, 6. You take control of your career, 7. You build wealth.
I am creating a full series on personal branding which I will be updating wekly. You can watch it here.

So You Want to Become A Content Creator?
Content creators, whether freelance or in-house, are in high demand. And there’s no sign of that demand slowing down.
In this video, I discuss exactly what being a content creator means, and the different ways you can apply that title to yourself. I also share a step-by-step process on how to become a content creator – things you should do first; and as the series progresses, I will be sharing in detail which tools you’ll need to get started.
Speaking of tools to get you started – recently purchased the $499 Sony ZV-1F camera to replace my main vlogging camera.
The Sony ZV-1F is a compact vlogging camera with a Type 1 (13.2×8.8mm) sensor and a fixed 20mm equivalent lens. This is a camera clearly aimed at vloggers, and features a three-capsule mic and fully articulating screen for facing-the-camera video creation.
