Your inside source @ THE PRETORIA ATTORNEYS ASSOCIATION

Image
The Pretoria Attorneys Association (PAA) is a voluntary association of attorneys, established in 1946, to facilitate and enhance an independent legal profession for the Tshwane Magisterial Jurisdiction, which broadly reflects the diversity of the Republic. The Association is organised in various subcommittees to best represent members’ interests. Two fully functional offices are located at the Pretoria High Court and Magistrate’s Court to assist Attorneys and members of the public. Speaking at the PAA Annual Golf Day I am extremely proud to serve as the Chairman of the Property Committee and as a member of the Executive Committee of the PAA.  Please follow this LINK for more.

Did I just include DR SEUSS in my MOST INSPIRATIONAL BOOKS?

Image
What books have been influential in my life? Well, I really enjoy biographies and history books.  I also enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's books.  I don't read much fiction anymore but I really enjoyed a wide range from Sydney Sheldon to JRR Tolkien, when I was younger. More recently, I have enjoyed the more inspirational or motivational books like The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and Rich Dad Poor Dad. I now have twins (11 months old) and I must say that my absolute favourite inspirational book at the moment is  ―  Dr. Seuss,  Oh, the Places You'll Go! “ You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go... ” I would love to engage with the readers of this Blog, so: What books have been influential in your life?   What books do YOU suggest that I read?

  How To Complete A Property Offer To Purchase (OTP) like a PRO - YouTube We have done a series of videos with Taurai Jack of M5 Real Estate (Pty) Ltd, known as M5 Property Addicts, about certain legal aspects of Property Investment and Property Law in general.  The series starts with a look at the solid foundation that all serious Property Investors should establish, namely a solid business structure.  " The most important aspect of making money out of property is preserving and protecting both the property and the wealth that is created. Far too many property investors rush into buying properties without first getting a suitable property investment structure in place.
