Competitions News Women's Month 2022

Competition: Win a signed copy of Bricks for Chicks – Property Investment for Women who Kick Ass!

This competition is closed. Congrats to Tsebo Mphuthi for winning the signed copy!

With Women’s Month coming to an end, we want to highlight the topic of ‘investment’ – so often done but not from the perspective of a woman. Investing is something that many people can learn how to do, yet it seems that more men than women are investing their money.

So why are less women investing their money? It comes down to three main reasons – women get paid less, they lack confidence and they are generally more risk-averse. What if there was a book that taught you how to invest in property that puts cash in your pocket, that puts you in control of your finances, and allowed you to have more disposable income at the end of every month?

In Bricks for Chicks, seasoned and savvy property investor Tanya Haffern introduces budding investors to property investment, demystifies industry lingo and outlines the basic strategies investors can employ to maximise returns. With this step-by-step, practical – and fun! – guide, Tanya aims to inspire and encourage women to start and grow their own property portfolio, and increase their financial skill set to acquire the confidence to become financially independent.

As a mother of two daughters, I am passionate about empowering women to be financially stable on their own terms. A man is not a financial plan and it’s time to flip the narrative of investing being hard, complicated or something we don’t talk about. Imagine how empowering it would be for you – and your partner – if you knew how to create passive income and grow your own property portfolio so you can take care of your own financial needs and in time, support those around you and the causes you care about”, says Haffern.

If you are looking for invaluable insights from a battle-sharpened, clued-up, kick-ass chick who doesn’t pull any punches and, at the same time, will inspire you to succeed in property investment, then you’re in luck! Bricks for Chicks was written for you.

Sam Beckbessinger, author of ‘Manage Your Money Like a F*cking Grownup’ says, “Bricks for Chicks is a delight. It was funny and smart, easy to follow, and I learned so much!”.
