There's a few JW's I still deal with. Some business etc etc. Well 3 years back I was involved in a financial group of investers in a commercial purchase. Well I was smart enough to secure my money. 3 years later and I have my investment back. Well the deal is starting to go sour. My back is covered.
Well the brother running the group is an elder and is starting to panic. To protect himself he wants to sell now. He calls everyone in the group to agree with him and then he calls me. I am no attorney but I am a broker so I do know Real Estate Law. This "brother" starts with how he's already discussed this with the group and 95% agree with him. My response? I don't care for decisions by majority because it rarely has to do with a decision by who is right. He starts in again and I'm interrupting and telling him I'm calling my business partner, (an attorney), and getting real advice. He keeps grinding me in circular arguments, the fact that the 95% agree with him blah blah blah. I told him that 1st of all, I care little what the "majority " speaks, 2nd, before he started flapping his gums he should have sought council with someone in the know. 3rd, this conversation is inane and I'm hanging up.
I mean really. This was the same Nazi tactics in the KH. Tell the person the decison is already made so tow the rope.
Well turns out I'm right. Council agreed with me.
So now he's trying to find him a person to agree. I said good luck.
I heard from another investor that he called my actions apostate. I said thank u
