Of all his achievements, benching 180kg in his local Mangere gym would have once rated as Marcus’ finest. But that was a year ago, when life was all about winning. Aggressively. These days, Marcus prefers yoga and pilates to keep him in peak condition, and his softer outlook has helped him eradicate the hard sell from his repertoire as a money lender. Where in the past any business was good business, he now wants to do the right thing by his clients and make sure they think through their decisions.
