Sign Update magazine

Can be ran from any location


Asking price £100k, but don’t need to pay up front. This can come from future profits, by sacrificing some income, but still making a living.

This would come with a long term hand over, and an option to pull out if it’s not for you.

I run the magazine almost entirely on my own, with 1 part-time features editor. The skills I need for this are: Sales, basic website maintenance, graphic design, book keeping.

Being able to write is a big bonus, as can build relationships with the customers, but it’s not essential.
