"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends upon the unreasonable man."
- George Bernard Shaw
Michael Kies is proof that when life presents us with challenges it is the unreasonable person who makes progress and thrives.
Raised on a vineyard in the Barossa Valley, when he was ten Michael's unreasonable expectations helped him save his father's life. With his family started facing financial hardship in the mid 1980s, Michael got unreasonable again and decided to start over. He left the farm, taking with him nothing more than the shirt on his back. He and his wife, Tina, started from scratch when Tina sold her hairdressing salon and they bought a shop.
In 2008 Michael faced another challenge when he was diagnosed with leukaemia.Once again he became unreasonable, deciding to fight the cancer every inch of the way. Helped by doctors and nurses who were equally unreasonable in wanting to beat the illness, he is here to tell his story.
Having sold his real estate business in 2008, Michael now shares his unique perspective – that by having unreasonable expectations you will bring great things into your life.
