#4 – How Founder Of We Buy Cars Today Thomas Deldago Built a Multi-Million Pound Business Car By Car

 

 

Hello Guys,

On this episode, I’m joined by successful entrepreneur Thomas Delgado.

Thomas is the founder and owner of the hugely successful ‘We Buy Cars Today’ enterprise. During our conversation, we delve into Thomas’s inspiring story of how he started the business and literally grew it car by car as he would drive all around the country making deals. It wasn’t long before Thomas had to expand. Today Thomas runs his company We Buy Cars Today, a high tech modern business with a multi-million-pound turnover. 

We delve into Thomas’s motivations and inspirations as an entrepreneur and how he feels about the work/life balance. I found it a motivational conversation and it’s an excellent showcase about what can be achieved through hard work, perseverance especially in what Thomas would call an ‘unsexy business’

I think there are plenty of insights into how to become a successful entrepreneur in this episode,
