May I suggest you spend it wisely, for instance, imparting your knowledge on those that need help with their projects because they are too tight to pay for it to be done by one of us rip of tradesmen.

Anyway I’m off for a swim in my pool, followed by a drive in the Lambo. 😂
Not too tight to pay, just not willing to pay over the odds for work that in some cases I can do better myself. Another thing, when I started out in engineering if we worked 4,6 or 8 hours that's what we charged the customer. In fact sometimes we would do a little more than we charged to help customers out. Information was always given freely to people we could help and sometimes, just to give a bit back for our good lifestyles, we would help others actually with work, if we had free time, no charge. People now are just too ungrateful full stop.
What made our country strong was helping others out if we could, not screwing them over, which is pretty much standard nowadays. I served my time training properly for years and having pride in my work and gratitude, not just to earn as much as I can by any means. It's because of this take, take as much as I can mentality of people today, why our society is falling apart. Should not of read about prices on here. Rant over.

Not charge the customer for it, that's for sure. It's called a little give and take. Not take, take. Just take some time and think about it, you are ripping the customer off, full stop.

Understand this I send all my customers a written they know exactly what they are paying for and have the chance to say no , I do not stand over my customer and give them a price and ask with menace when they would like me to start the work, so how is that ripping anybody off .

@OnThe Up I'm curious to know if your free advice and helpful nature was happening after you had finished your days work and spent another couple hours having sat in traffic to do a quote that you provide for free with free advice, getting home at 8pm, using your own fuel, out on the road for which you also pay business insurance for, a higher rate of tax having the van, liability insurance and no paid holidays/sick days. Or was it done from the comfort of an office where you still got paid by the company you worked for regardless if the remaining hours were being billed directly to who the firm you were doing contract work for?

I'd also like to point out the person you said is ripping people off is the person that gave you his advice. For free.

You are either the slowest tiler on earth or you are earning a absulute fortune.
Ive no idea where you are, but you chargethem prices in lancashire, you will be sat at home playing doctors and nurses with your wife or husband
It's called custom work, see the last 5 pictures. Some of you might say you buy these products in store and just install them . Not quite accurate. I carefully design them, fabricate and install them myself. A lot of work. To deliver this kind of job takes time. Do not confuse a McDonalds job with custom work. See the first picture, I get hired to fix these kind of jobs and sure the hell I fix them. More pictures on my website.

Right, so basically, you ain’t charging normal m2 work , you are charging for bespoke jobs, so basically your whole input is kind a waste of me typing, thanks for that, you owe me £30

You are dead wrong buddy. Read the second post. It clearly states prices per m2 plus additional prices for the custom work. Don't just pick on me for no reason just because you cannot deliver a top notch job. I m in London, price speaking, that s the real price for professional jobs. Reason why I don't live in Lancashire damn it!

Ah bless, it’s superman, your right , I cannot in no way deliver a top notch jjob like you sweetheart, I’m only a poor northerner , and your a septic living in the big smoke.
It’s no wonder no one comes on here anymore with massive billy big ballsacks like you and a few others on .And trust me, mitres and bullnose are not really bespoke,as everyone and his sister in law does it, I was being nice , it’s really easy work with the right tools .
Good day my elitist spermstain, I may come back on in a month or two to see your brilliant comeback.Carry on the bespoke work.

Show us what you can do and we call it even. However, you should not be talking about bullnose if you never done it yourself to see how easy is to fabricate anything let alone porcelain. Do not talk please!
