    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...

    Week One of Bookings Update: * I have hosted two separate groups of guests and made 300 euro. With four more bookings confirmed it brings the total sales this week to 1000 euro. I'm really happy building up 5 star reviews now! Even going as far as having to sneak away from my cousins after...

    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...

    NOTABLE! The MAIN difference between someone who makes 100k /year and someone who makes 1m?

    In my opinion the most successful people I have seen have an active income from their business pursuits and a secondary income from another industry. The most common one is somebody owning a business and then funneling the profit they make into Real Estate. That's where you get the saying that...

    How I went from $0 to $300,000 at the age of 22 (Oh, and back to $0)

    Thanks for sharing this story. While I didn't invest in crypto at all I did have a business previously that went from making good money every month to absolutely nothing so I can relate to this. Probably one of the best posts I have read here on the Fastlane forum in a long time. @MJ DeMarco...

    NOTABLE! A fundamental question for any entrepreneur: What do I want from my business?

    There are options to combine elements of both. I'm 21 with a strong desire to travel which I had been doing previously while copywriting however my family was always involved in real estate mainly here in Ireland where I'm from. Over the last year I have become more involved in that branching...

    So I learned how to ride a bike this weekend

    Didn't manage to get a picture of me as there was only the two of us but I went swimming in the sea with my lifeguard friend today in 12C/53F weather. First time in the water for over a year, enjoyed it a lot to be honest and learned a few things but it was PROPER COLD so we didn't last too long.

    Bug Report: Fatal Error when searching for "speed reading"

    Didn't want to start a new thread to report this bug with Advertisements. I have been seeing this since about January but had been ignoring it up until now. @Fox @MJ DeMarco

    Significant Change to Upwork coming in May 2019... “Pay to Bid”

    Really looking forward to these changes. Less competition for those of us who are already doing well and for only a few extra pennies every month.

    O/T: HEALTH Any BJJ folks on here?

    Only been training BJJ since about June last year, not as consistently as I would have wanted but I'm getting there. I didn't really realize how far I had come in those few months until I got randomly attacked by a drunk dude in a bar just before Christmas. Spotted the sucker punch coming a few...
