“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it” said Winston Churchill. Are you busy dreaming or are you hard at work? Easyspace have again welcomed back Andrea del Campo from our partner ePages to explain why ecommerce retailers should prepare for winter sales during the quiet summer period.

Sean Mallon is a 29 year old entrepreneur who started his first business, Intelligent Business Transfer, at the age of 21, armed with just a Yellow Pages and a mobile phone. He has successfully run this business for over 8 years now, helping more that 1,200 everyday entrepreneurs realise the value of their hard work by successfully completing the sale of their businesses.
Sean identified the trend toward self-service platforms like eBay, Gumtree and eMoove, deciding that the business transfer industry was prime for a disruptive new business model. He spent around six months attempting to secure funding for the new business, successfully securing £1 million of investment last year – launching Bizdaq in November 2014. With Bizdaq Sean is cleaning up an industry and ensuring that small business owners save on average over £10,000 on the sale of their business.
