Spotlight on An Author: Sheryl McCorry

Sheryl McCorry's first book Diamonds & Dust became a bestseller after it was published two years ago. Her second book Stars over Shiralee tells more about her life from where the first ended. I read the second book first, but rushed to my library to borrow a copy of Diamonds & Dust as soon as I'd finished her second memoir. Sheryl became the first women in the Kimberley to run two million-acre cattle stations. She writes in a real down-to-earth way and it's wonderful to hear about life on the cattle ranches of regional Australia. It's certainly foreign to South Africans, but interestingly it's also very different to the lives of most Australians.

South African military history has always held my interest. It comes as no surprise because four generations of my family served in the military and various wars and I have 22 sets of family medals in my collection. Even after spending over 30 years in Australia, I am as keen as ever on the subject, and have recently written three books, two of which are about the Boer War.

When I arrived in Australia in August 2007, the first question everyone asked me was: "Who do you support?"

Being a World Cup year, my reply was always the same: The Boks! I was usually given the evil eye and I just assumed it was because I hadn't picked the Wallabies. It soon became apparent I had no idea what they were on about.

The Mitsubishi Lancer has a well known and respected history of competing in the World Rally Championship and the Dakar Rally. These are arguably the two toughest races on the planet, yet Mitsubishi has always managed to stay in the upper echelons of the competitors. One of the primary benefits of being involved in competitive motorsport is that the use of cutting edge technology to keep you ahead of the pack on the race track will slowly migrate south into the road cars, benefiting the consumers.

It goes without saying that the current financial downturn has brought home some very hard truths. The vital phrase “cash will always be king” for example, should be fixed in every business owner's mind for life. Most business owners spend a lot of time, money and effort focussing on the ‘bigger picture'. However, the main reason most businesses fail during a period of growth or downturn is due to a lack of cash flow rather than a lack of profit.
