    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    It’s been another week since I posted an update. Things have been getting really busy. I had four different groups of guests staying on Saturday night. It’s becoming more difficult to manage keys, communications, cleaning/washing etc I’ll have to start putting systems in place. The new...

    Social Media Wantrepreneurs & Surviver Bias

    One thing that I have noticed in regards to marketing is that while many of us on here talk about the more technical minded individuals who have difficulties connecting with business owners and expressing how they can help them in a proper way. There are also many individuals who are extremely...

    Social Media Wantrepreneurs & Surviver Bias

    I think many if not all of the big industries are already disrupted or are in the process of being changed by technology. The early days of the internet are well and truly over but I will admit that the opportunity to do even more will always still exist as tech continues evolving. The fact...

    Social Media Wantrepreneurs & Surviver Bias

    One of the biggest issues I have noticed with those looking to start a business and become entrepreneurs in this day and age is the fact that those with online businesses scream the loudest. If you are a young dude/girl growing up having spent most of your life with a small amount or very little...

    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    Yeah, a quick google search reveals that they are phasing out the deductibles in the UK. They will be gone entirely by next year. So, yes you probably will work out a lot better going down the business route. Here in Ireland we still have 80% mortgage interest relief on rented properties...

    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    Hey fishgodeep, thanks for your response. It's nice to see another fellow Irishman on here. We are beginning to build a small community of Fastlaners here and maybe it's time to organize some sort of meetup or group chat for a start anyways. I'm actually based in the west, not Dublin! (yet) *...

    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    Hey man, thanks for reaching out here on the thread. I'm not actually juggling as much in my life now as I was previously. Things got really busy and I decided to take a gap year in the middle of college to pursue these opportunities. I have also only been writing for copy clients who I have...

    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    Week 2 Update: * Busy busy busy.. my current goal is to achieve Superhost status by July 1st. To do that I need consistently high reviews and a minimum of 10 stays before that date. Currently I'm at 6 so it shouldn't be too hard to get four more by the end of June. The main tourist season here...

    Doing the Andy Frisella "75 Hard" Challenge

    I have attempted the challenge twice and failed both times. 14 days and 7 days. I'm really embarrassed even writing this but it has to be done. While I struggled with working out twice a day due to me also working 12 hour days on my business doing physical work it was ultimately alcohol that...

    INTRO ~Hello, Where have you been all my life?

    I'm based in Ireland. It's also a hot market right now but not on the scale that Toronto is currently operating at. There are a few options here if you want to continue down the Real Estate path such as House Hacking (i.e If you already own a house start renting out rooms short term on AirBnB)...

    INTRO ~Hello, Where have you been all my life?

    Welcome to the forum! You mentioned that your husband is a contractor. In what profession? If its in construction then maybe you could try getting involved in Real Estate. Over a few years you could channel some of the money that both of you are earning into it eventually building up a portfolio...

    REAL ESTATE "I'm Not Here To Take Part, I'm Here To Take Over"

    End of May Update: * It's been a while but I'm still working on my Real Estate goals. Last night at 3am I got my first 'sale' as part of my management contract for apartments in a tourist location in my city. It's only 150 euro for use of one double bedroom for three nights but its a start...
