You need to go to the gym more than once a week for it to be worth it, and for a few years. I am going to say this politely, i notice in life there are two types of people, one where if they are giving instructions they go full out, the other where you give them instructions, you need to hold their hand and push them to do it, hence why i said a lot of people like to talk, but actions are not there.

Stop debating guys on here about Brexit, invest in your business or whatever it is to generate more money, go to the gym 5 times a week, find time. Stop making excuses and talking so much about what girls want and don't want, go full out, and not make excuses on  why you are not putting 100%.

It's not that easy Japs, I'm guessing you're in IT and so hence send heavy IT files over the internet and can work remotely and only need do a certain volume of work a day and can schedule when. Perhaps it is something else but similar concept.

Most of us don't have that option available. More perhaps have done due to working from home but that is a recent change and not one I am able to enjoy. Even then it can often mean you having to remain in the country to do it and working full out.

Hence most people are knackered by the time they finish work. The gym being the last thing on their mind. Usually diner and rest is all that is possible. Now you and I both know that to do gym it's not just about finding time but also not being tired while doing it. A tired guy at the gym doesn't perform well and normally goes home exhausted early and not up to his usual workout. That sort of life can't be maintained in the long run.

Myself I work 30 hours a week in my job then I spend long weekends converting my one bed house into a three bed house for rental. That should be done in the next few months. That should hopefully allow me more time for gym. I do all of the work on my house myself but while this involves some heavy lifting it tends not to equate to enough of a work out I think as there is technical working out and lighter work mixed in. Hence I am usually knackered by the end of it too much so to do the gym.

Apart from rental income when I get it in the conversion plus bring in an area outside the cities (virus uplift) means I am probably on course for an uplift in property price of approximately £100k over the original price though minus costs if materials if that so perhaps £70-80k uplift for three years or so work (tax free). Thats ok more than I would have got if I just worked extra hours in my job, not astounding but ok. Main thing is I will have rooms to rent out so that will give me more scope.

Other than rental income when it comes which will only provide so much I could ideally do with some online business but at present that alludes me. Many people try it but you can easily find yourself in a swamped market making no money if not careful so it's not as easy as some might think. Anyway that is why I can't spend hours in the gym. At the moment staying in work is more pressing. I count myself lucky that I'm not one of those being made unemployed.

I know a lady in ukraine, making $25 an hour teaching english to chinese kids online, she bought 3 properties in odessa. She speaks some chinese, you can learn some broke Chinese , make a good income whilst in ukraine. Heck you can just use english, and charge $15 an hour and be fully booked out, why don't you? Got to beat Moby, Rosco and the others in the Brexit debate right?

I know nothing about Brexit, what is happening with Trump, or coronavirus, but my business industry, i know it better than anyone else. My clients know i am an expert, they beg me to take time off. Gym, i know about, tattoos i know about, i am an expert in the fields that effect life.

You got a few hours in each day, and you are choosing to waste them. I work 80 to 100 hours a week, i make it work, just stop making excuses.

Regarding myself, i started my business by myself (with my ex fiance's support), i was making $200 a month whilst working 80-100 hours a week. I made the site, made the content,i did it all by myself. My ex fiance's mother says that i am good at doing stuff solo. After 10 months i built it up, my brother left his job as a data scientist , in a lucrative job to work full-time with me. You are guessing a lot of stuff about me, but wrong .

Forgot to say that I get what you are saying for sure if a guy works out, gets a toned physique then buys some decent quality reasonably expensive threads to put on that bod many FSW will start seeing him as prospect and not prey. It's a case of no longer putting lipstick on a pig as some guys might say here.

It's probably something a lot of guys can't emulate easy. A lot of guys can go in a pay a few hundred pounds or dollars for an expensive wardrobe but be lacking in physique. I'm not one of those fat dudes I'm an everyday average build type of guy but to date not much in the way of muscle even though I do some physical exercise.

I'm guessing that I would have to bring the gym more into my way of life so I can pace it a bit and do it as a way of leisure to get in the amount required. I'll try and or more time to doing it from home as I've got a bench and weights and don't fancy going to the gym at the moment for virus reasons. I think that's the best way of trying to up my efforts there atm and try and make it a long term thing.

Oh the Brexit stuff and posting here I generally just do during rest time when knackered. I'm guessing you're making more than $200 a month now you built your business up.

Youíve been saying this for some years now!!!!
Are you ever going to finish?

Hmmm, so youíre hoping for an increase in house valuation of £100k.  :deadhorse:

Even if you have a nominal increase in your property value itís just a paper exercise unless you sell. So no gain for Trench.
Youíve mentioned doing all the work yourself so so no adherence to building regs, certifying any electrical work etc.
Better not tell your house insurer, especially if youíre taking in lodgers.
This is Trench LaLa Land.

So how much income are you hoping to realise from renting rooms. £100 per week inclusive?
Thatís £10400 annually less bills. Take away £3000 for council tax, utilities, insurance pa
(Iím being generous here) which leaves £7400 annually which gives Trench under £600 pm. I havenít included taxable income over £7500 which is the threshold so that leaves even less. Of course, knowing Trench heíll probably charge rent at just the level to avoid paying any tax so if we factor that in, itís an income of
less than £350 pm.

Wrong on all counts JG. A property that has increased substantially in value can be used to buy another property or money invested elsewhere by use of a mortgage.

Building regs apply for work to existing buildings but alteration work may be carried out without inspection so long as it's to the building regs standard. It's generally down to the homeowner to apply for an inspection. Many old houses are often nowhere near building regs standard being constructed way back. Some have been changed but by bit over time as they pass from owner to owner, do you think they have ever been inspected?

I would of course get an electrician in at the end to any necessary work and to certify it.

Tax is dependent on whether still working. If not I can use my personal tax allowance of £12.5k.

Admittedly this won't bring in vast sums but it will make me more financially independent and hence able to spend more time on other ventures that may bring in more money. We're not all born rich you know ;)

Oh really.
Maybe in Tralalaland one can expect a £100k increase in a propertyís valuation by converting a 1 bed terraced to a 3 bed.
Even with a nominal increase in valuation itís all paper money. As for expecting to remortgage and buy other property, what bank is going lend with no cash deposit and an annual income like yours.
Iíd love to be a fly on the wall at your meeting with your bank manager when you apply for that mortgage!!!

Of course, I donít know exactly what renovation/conversion work you are doing but my understanding of the building regs is that there are several areas such structural alterations or drainage, even reroofing, rendering/replastering are covered by the regs so itís not as simple as you would have us believe.

One would hope you wouldnít be such a tightwad so as to ignore basic safety norms.

I suggest you do some reading about income from lodgers and tax on such income.

Youíre certainly right about that.

Now youíre back in LaLaLand.

Perhaps if you spent less time in LaLaLand and more time working and earning a decent income you could actually make a difference.

Trench,

You are making excuses. You work a grueling 30 hours per week. Hahahahaha!
If you work any 30 hour days, take that day off, otherwise you should be at the
gym AND learning Russian AND improving your income AND improving your
future earning potential. The more you work out the less knackered you will be.

If a girl starts making excuses dump her immediately since she isn't serious enough
about you or motivated enough to pursue.

This forum is many things but excuses tend to fall on deaf ears. Be a man of action!

That's a funny postcard Bill I like it! :D

Well, funny as it may seem I did get an idea for a website business today to try to boost my income and give me more independent income. It's something I can do within my existing schedule so shouldn't conflict with existing tasks too much. I'll try and start cracking on it this week :) Don't worry it's not teaching English, decided that I would pass on that one unless no other option lol. The gym stuff I will just have to try and get some time in at home which I've struggled too at the moment but here's hoping. When my schedule eases up a bit I will replace it with more gym stuff, till then the lifting work doing up my house will have to suffice.

Learning Russian I want to get going on again and think I might be able to fit some in at night after working on my house. I can lay in bed and follow the tape on it. I'll give that all a bash and let you know how it goes ;)
