The Hawaiians have a name for it, Laniakea which translates to Immeasurable Heaven. This term refers to a super-cluster of 100,000 galaxies that spread 500 million light years across the Universe. (If you think that is a big number, consider the 6.7 billion light-years from one side of the Universe to the other – and no, I am not getting into a discussion of the Universe having no ‘edges’ or is expanding etc.)

What I want to wish you is “Laniakea” Immeasurable Heaven, as we approach the start of the Festive Season and the conclusion of this year.

What a year! Individually and collectively. Nationally and Internationally. I don’t know about you, but I have never experienced anything like it.

At MANSAM® Magazine we will only ever treat you how we would want to be treated. No pop-ups (I detest them), no spamming, no low-quality ‘noise’ that will try to steal your attention.

What you will get is our best ideas and material. Content to suit you – our very select, special and unique audience. Only the best from our Contributors and our Advertisers – and their best ideas too. As I wrote in a recent Blog (have you looked at our Blog Section recently?) “If you want world-class success, you need to make world-class choices – and become the person who you are meant to be – to do what you are meant to do.” Easier said, than done. Also 100% correct if you want to excel.

As Dan Sullivan, a hero of mine says, “Always make your future bigger than your past” and my mate ‘Rocket Jones’ expanded that quote to read, “make your tomorrow bigger and better than your yesterday”.

Publishing MANSAM® has taught me a great deal. About myself, about You – our readers, listeners and viewers, about our Advertisers, about the ‘Market’ and about Australia and about this World of ours. Obviously Australia is #1. Do you know our #2 readership is the USA and in large numbers. I definitely should be selling adverts there! The top list also contains  Sweden, the UK and Belgium. That, to me, is amazing when we are coming-up to 4 years old in 2018.

“You cannot be half envious and half grateful.” Dan Sullivan and I want you to know I am totally, completely, full-on grateful to all of you who enjoy this unique magazine of ours.

Here’s what our last 2017 Edition holds for You.

VIDEO

I am – as I am certain you are too – very health conscious, particularly as we live in a melanoma kingdom! This is a brilliant, short video by IBM OUT-THINK MELANOMA every beach-goer at every beach, every farmer, every holiday-maker, every convertible sports-car driver – all of us – need to watch this video! I like that it is shot at Bondi too and features my Surf Club.

The Team at MANSAM® Magazine joins me in wishing you a good, safe, happy Holiday Season and end-of-year. Enjoy this final MANSAM® for 2017. Back at you in January 2018
