Sam Mallikarjunan is one of those people whose mental clarity shines through everything he does and says. This hour-long talk is worth the listen for the sheer value of Sam’s ideas and advice.
The third episode I recorded for the podcast stars Sam Mallikarjunan, one of the people who has influenced me in a meaningful way over the past few years. He is Executive Strategist at HubSpot, PDP Instructor at Harvard University and Faculty Chair at the University of Florida, and you might be surprised to know that he achieved all this without ever getting his bachelor’s degree.
This is not the only surprising fact about Sam!
