MARK'S (NOT SO) DAILY BLOG

The world is a stage

I've been pretty quiet the last few days, not because I've been taking a break, but simply because September/October is always the busiest season for the MC circuit, and I've been travelling around SA and been on stage every day this week.

Thanks to the team at Old Mutual who have been hosting me in Cape Town and Bloemfontein as we launched revolutionary new products to their brokers and advisors. I also spoke the audience about my experience with cancer and heart disease.

One of the guest speakers was Professor Tim Noakes who is turning the whole "weight loss" theory on it's head by advocating a low carb high fast diet.

After hearing his talk twice during the roadshow, I just had to buy his book to read more.

It's fascinating as his perspective on eating is as a scientist and it has got the medical fraternity in an uproar. My verdict is still out as to whether I subscribe to his theory, but I love the fact that he's a fish swimming upstream and willing to challenge the norm. After all, at one stage when everyone thought the world was flat, someone stood up with a theory that the world was round, and was ostracised as being ridiculous!

The Old Mutual roadshow is still coming to Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Durban over the next 2 weeks. If you're a broker, I'll see you on stage!

Tonight I'm on a different stage, dressed as a hippie, as I host SAMANCOR's annual event which has a retro theme! I'll have to dig into my party suitcase to retro-fit myself! Peace, love and no war this weekend!
