Take the 47 minutes and 49 seconds to listen to what was a great interview with Kojo on the gig economy, the freelance workforce and starting a small business.
On Monday the 19th February 2018, I once again had the honour of chatting to Ernest Pillay on the Drive Time Experience on Radio 2000. Ernest is a gentleman and a fellow freelancer who took a keen interest in the WTF [What The Freelance] book and course that is running now at Vega Schools.
I have to say, they also play the coolest chilled drive time music - check them out!

On the 1st of February, Vega School and Growing Pains Business Coaching hosted a very insightful talk by Mr Aviv Weil, the head of creative workshop at Facebook Africa. Some of the human insights and stats are stagering!
Aviv shared global trends to several digital agency heads and about 150 team members that currently are involved with Growing Pains. We also had the pleasure of Francois, the campus navigator at Vega Jo'burg, telling us a little about the school and its alumni.
Vega hosted the event as Growing Pains along with What The Freelance have developed a Freelance Mini-MBA that starts in March 2018, across all four of the Vega SA campuses.
Last Sunday morning, I was given the pleasure of speaking to Ashraf on SAFM on his freelance career and the challenges he faced and often still faces as an independent professional.
The conversation covered aspects of the current economic situation is SA and how the education system is letting people down in the entrepreneurial space.
Last night, I had the opportunity to speak to the Kaya FM audience on the #LifewithKojoBaffoe show. The topic was centred around the current economic climate and how this is growing the small entrepreneurs and the freelance economy.
With Kojo being a freelancer most of his life, the conversation was frank and honest pointing at the clear need that business skills are lacking in the independent professional space, something our What The Freelance book and course at Vega School is certainly helping with.
If you tuned it, great, if not - what our Facebook page for the next interview coming soon...
