Thank you to everybody who has posted their wonderfully supportive comments so far and I look forward to meeting some of you in 2014.

I'm off to Russia to be with Svetlana's family this Saturday, returning on the 2nd January. It's a very rural part of Russia so access to the internet is very poor, which for me is probably a good thing as it will mean that I get a proper rest and return fully refreshed for the New Year.

I will leave you with this question; at what point does work become a paying hobby?

My answer is that it's when you have systematised and outsourced all the things you don't like doing and can spend the vast majority of your time doing the things you love, especially if you still get paid for doing those things. I believe we should all work whilst we are capable of doing so, the challenge for most is being able to enjoy it.

Thanks again 🙂

Did you mean the advice was tailored to suit the client or the lunch?!!

I have crossed swords with Mark a few times over the years and whilst we don't always agree we always learn something. Mark also has a far wider range of knowledge areas than I do being stuck with just Landlord and Tenant law related issues.

The only thing that will stop you getting clients Mark is as you yourself identify, your location. If only you were based in Birmingham you’d make a fortune but who knows maybe a future monthly clinic could be held there!! If so royalties on fees to me for that idea please!!

£1,250 a day I guess puts you at the top end of the range in terms of consultants fees, but then as with everything in life you only get what you pay for and anyone paying for time with you is spending their money wisely.

Be interested to hear after a few months how many lunches you’ve had to provide, or how many shorter session visitors you’ve had.

Either way very best of luck with it I reckon anyone within two hours driving time of Norwich will be beating your door down.

Thought you were easing up on work commitments my friend?!!

A great idea Mark! I find both the site and your insight invaluable and I hope to book an appointment sometime in the near future!

Mark, what a great idea. Having worked with you for approx a year and a half now, and shared many conversations and emails as well, I have also benefited from your insight and market knowledge.

I'm confident that all 'serious' BTL'ers whether long established or new to the business, will be calling on your expertise.

Whatever your fee, it is not a cost but an investment and no doubt they will see a return.

(although I think Svetlana just wants a long lunch every week, and it looks like you're paying for that too! 🙂 )

Good luck Mark; not that you need it! Five minutes on the phone is worth its weight in gold so an hour or more is a goldmine!

I would like to book the four hour slots every Saturday and Sunday for the rest of our lives together please.

What's for lunch?

By the way, is it OK if I use our joint account to make payment? LOL 😉

Having worked with Mark for over 11 years I had to much to say to fit into a comment so I wrote my own article "My views on a consultancy with Mark Alexander" which you can view if you wish here >>

Wishing you the very best with this Mark. There are, as we have found, a number of Landlords out there who would clearly benefit from your considerable knowledge. Your advice gave us the confidence to proceed with a litigation against ours (one of the rogues).

All the best in Russia this Christmas. Our Russian family will probably pass you in Moscow as they make their way to us for the holiday period.

best regards, Roy and Tanya

Congratulations on a great idea Mark. I can't imagine there are many people better placed to give advice on the subject.
