A young South African lawyer recently proved that a retweet can go along way for business people on Twitter. This after he shared a tweet about his law firm and received nearly a hundred thousand retweets.
As a result the young ambitious lawyer, @9xMartin, received his first client which he will be representing under his very own law firm. He once again took to Twitter to thank everyone who had helped him promote his law firm by retweeting his post.
He also mentioned how he did not think that sharing a post about his law firm would work, but decided to take the chance. He also explained how his followers had helped him reach more people by retweeting the post.
"I took a chance and announced the opening of my firm on twitter, thinking it would just be a flop. But you guys showed me love and helped me reach more than 90k people. Today I had my first court appearance under my law firm because of someone who saw a repost on Twitter."
Twitter users who were touched by his humble nature took to his comment section to share messages of support and to wish him well with his upcoming case. Read some of their comments below.
"God will always lay a hand to your work brother. Twitter community, keep on doing Lord's work."
@HapistoV shared this advice:
"Go and represent well, respect your clients time and stick to your promise. One client will refer you to another one. The law firm in that way will grow bigger and bigger. God bless your hustle."
Briefly.co.za also reported that studying is hard, working is hard, and doing both at the same time is a difficult task that many South Africans have to juggle in order to pay for their fees. Thabo Mashego from Tshwane did just that and much more.
According to a post he shared on Facebook page Varsity World, Thabo had multiple responsibilities at home and society while he was both working and studying towards obtaining his second Master's degree.
Thabo graduated Cum Laude from the Tshwane University of Technology earlier this year. He obtained a Master's Degree in Business Administration and is now working on a PhD. Facebook users have been telling Thabo what an inspiration he is to them in the comments.
