Solicitors: Why Don’t They Respond To My Emails?!

If you've been around me long enough, you know there's one group I dread almost as much as builders - solicitors.


Slow as snails, stuck in the past, and almost ghostlike with responses.


But here's the twist - my solicitor, Stuart Forsdike, doesn't fit the mould.⁠


Stu, the backbone behind PCS Legal, has revolutionised the scene. Starting out as a small & humble family-run firm, PCS is now a national heavyweight with over 170 staff.⁠


I sat down with Stu and he revealed it all - the secrets of conveyancing, the reasons why solicitors are notoriously slow, the cash flow behind the curtain, and much, much more.⁠


So grab your gavel, tune in, and find out why Stu is the exception to my solicitor scorn.

    Dubai, Dubai, Dubai — the glitzy city where you can flex for the ‘Gram with clean streets, safe neighbourhoods, and every luxury imaginable. But, under all this opulence, is there a darker side?Where's Shaz and I both agree that the city’s a mix of opportunity and excess — a business hub where entrepreneurs come to strike gold. You’ve got the skyscrapers and luxury cars that just scream ‘success.’ But it’s not all shiny; the service industry can be hit or miss, and there’s a lot of flash with little substance. Genuine connections can be challenging unless your bank account matches the scene.Still, the networking opportunities are gold if you know how to play the game. The right connections can launch your business, but only if you stay smart and don’t drown in trends and ‘pay-to-play’ deals.Curious about Dubai’s real draw and how it shapes up as a place to invest or live? Tune into this episode for our full take!Give Shaz a follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wheresshaz/

    Ah, affirmations — they aren’t just some feel-good fluff for your morning Instagram scroll. They’re about setting the tone for your entire life.Teaming up with Where's Shaz, we dove into Intelligent Change’s affirmation cards, and let me tell you, these hit different. They actually echo a lot of the mantras I swear by in my own life. But here’s the real talk: flipping through a few cards isn't enough. You've got to be stone-cold honest with yourself when you read these. No point in reciting stuff you don’t believe.If you're serious about improving your life, give these a shot. Just remember that the real change starts by first being real with yourself.
  • THE 6-Step Solution for Solving ALL Problems

    07:00
    Let’s get this straight: Business isn't for the faint-hearted. Over the years I've had to deal with so much shit — rogue builders, no-show cleaners, and suppliers who can’t keep a deadline to save their lives. But guess what? I mastered how to turn all that mess into a money-making machine, and now it's your shot. Here's just a snippet of my 6-step framework:1️⃣ Cause and Consequence — get to the root and see what’s at stake.2️⃣Map your Timelines — track when things need to happen, and set those deadlines.3️⃣ Allies in Action — your crew is crucial, because no one wins solo4️⃣ Crafting your Fix — design a solution that’s not just a patch but a full-on fix.5️⃣ From Plans to Reality — execute with precision, don’t let those plans collect dust.6️⃣ Learn from the Journey — every problem is a lesson. Get smarter, get stronger.This isn’t just about damage control — it’s about owning the process and leading the charge. If you're spinning in circles, pretending you’re “too busy” to address the chaos, then you’re not just stuck — you’re sinking. Take control, make smart moves, and turn those problems into stepping stones.
