Oops, that's a Dutch Facebook page. Think it should be Cycling Plus Magazine. www.cyclingplus.com/

This is an amazing testimony about the greatest spiritual healer (Mama Shamirah Call/Whatsapp+27714397271) who helped me bring back my husband and father of my three kids back to me. I am from Johannesburg and happily married to a loving and caring husband with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago between me and my husband. So terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. He said that he never wanted to stay with me again, and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children pass through a lot of pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back after much begging but all in vain and he confirmed it that he had made his decision and never wanted to see me again or anything to do with me which left me so devastated that i even thought of taking my own life but still my kids kept me pushing on. So one evening, as i was coming back from work, i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband, and i explained every thing to him and that's when he told me that the only way i would get my husband back was to visit Mama Shamirah the greatest spiritual healer who had just recently helped him too get back her stubborn wife that had left him for another man. I at first honestly never believed it would work for me but i had already known and witnessed my friend's situation so i decided to give it a try,since i had no other choice than to follow his advice. Then he gave me Mama Shamirah's contact number (+27714397271) which i called and made my consultation with Mama Shamirah. So the next morning, Mama Shamirah assured me that i will get my husband back with in two days, what an amazing statement!! I never believed, she spoke with me and told me everything that i needed to do as she made the spiritual prayers. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past six {6}months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back, i at first thought it was dream, but it was so real. So Amazing!!. So that was how he came back that same day with lots of love and joy and he apologized for his mistake and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day, our relationship has been stronger than how it was before, by the help of this great woman Mama Shamirah. So i will advice you out there to kindly visit Mama Shamirah in case you are in any condition of situations like this, or you have any problem related to "bringing back your ex lover back or any life struggles. You may Call/Whatsapp Mama Shamirah on +27714397271 she will definitely help you with in the shortest time you can imagine.

Contact Mark

Mark’s team will reply to all enquiries that are not covered in the FAQ’s.  If you have a quick question for Mark himself, please get in touch on social media.

FAQ’s

The two hardest parts of any project is committing to actually do it and then fundraising.  There is no golden ticket for sponsorship, but there are some simple useful tips.  Unless you have a profile and a strong track record, don’t waste your time cold contacting potential corporate sponsors.  To get started, direct network by asking everyone you know for introductions to people and businesses who may be interested in your ambition.  Then do the same with them, so that your network gets bigger and bigger.  If you simply ask for money straight away, when the answer is no, that is the end of the conversation.  Instead, ask for introductions.  When it comes to kit, it is also very unlikely to get free kit without a strong track record of publicity.  So give suppliers an easy yes, by asking for cost or trade price products.  This way you get a huge discount on the kit you need, and they aren’t making any losses.
If you are sitting in an office job imagining the freedom of running your own business in the outdoors, then be realistic about the amount of hard work to make a living.  If you build the right skills then one route is as an instructor or guide.  Likewise, if media is your passion, then volunteering and building your CV is crucial.  Many, but not all cameramen and producers have formal training.  But if you would like to build a career like Mark, running your own expeditions and with a TV profile, then you need to systematically build your brand, using social media and traditional media.  Gaining commissions for TV is very competitive and relies on having unique ideas.  Being a competitive athlete in organised competitions is unlikely to create these opportunities.  Be incredibly determined and expect set backs – discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.
If you are planning a major expedition which will be interesting for the public to follow, then please do let Mark know through social media and he may be able to mention and RT.  However, due to the amount of requests that Mark receives for social media promotions for charity events, these is not always possible.  Mark is also not able to take on any new ongoing charity roles for the meantime, but has a discounted rate for charity talks and appearances.  Please get in touch with enquiries.
Almost everyone has the ability to take on adventure challenges, but it is sensible to build up experience and fitness over time, rather than immediately taking on the world.  For most expeditions you should start with good all round fitness and then you will get fitter and more conditioned to the long hours during the challenge.  If you are setting out to break World Records and be more of an endurance athlete than a nomadic adventurer, then this will take a more systematic approach to training.  Injury and illness are your biggest concerns on long expeditions.  If you are cycling, then correct bike fit is essential to avoid repetitive strains, and for all sports think about cross training to build all round muscle balances.  But the biggest transition from taking on one day challenges to major adventures is your mindset and there is no training book that will help with this.  Experience and time in the great outdoors is the only way to build resilience and your comfort zone so you can take on tougher challenges.
