Business Story

Why this business was started

Purely for adventure, i was a senior manager for one of the worlds largest shipping company. Basically i had no idea about self employement and i wanted to test myself. Changed my career completely and taken a very hard task, after all i am glad i did it! Being your own boss is worth it, also i would rather be selling plysical goods such as furniture and decor than selling service which is much harder!

The reason of selling this business

In 2017 i have been offered a fantastic position from an overseas furniture manufacturer. Now i am their UK MD with a small share in the business. First i thought i could run 2 businesses together however the new job took over my life slowly but surely. At the moment we supply some of the largest retailers in the UK, we import more than 15-20 containers a month. During this tempo i have no time to run MFD but more importantly my business partners would not be happy me spending my time on any other business! Therefore i have decided to sell my business to focus on just one thing.

What's involved in running this business

Doing all necessary , working everyday will bring huge success.

This business was founded: over 5 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 2 hours per week

    Hi, I am the UK MD of an overseas furniture manufacturing company. I have worked many years for some of the largest logistics companies in the world in management and business development positions. In 2015 I have made myself redundant and become self employed to start selling furniture & decor online, just to start my own business and gain experience. 2 years after i have been offered a senior managing position from a well known furniture manufacturer and i have accepted it. I love spending time outdoors, boating, fishing and parties! .
