Currently we have a number of great entrepreneurs in the country who are doing fine and leading private lives like MR DAVID NAMA of DANA HOLDINGS.

The other weekend as I was preparing to go to bed, David Nama, Chairman and CEO of Dana Holdings asked me to stand in for him at a function the following day:
'My brother,' he called over the phone, 'I am at the airport.
I have an urgent business trip to Johannesburg which I did not anticipate and I need you to help me address a meeting tomorrow morning.'
This is the life of Nama.

He has such tremendous energy that if time could be sold, I would trade in with him for a few dollars (as I have plenty of it and do not know what to do with it!)!
