”What time is it ? Really ? I guess it’s true when they said time flies when you’re having fun” Eindhoven, 2011
”Do you have gas and light running through the building? Great! The only thing what I did for most of your neighbours is just checking if we can save money on your energybill. I guess you have no time to do it your self, thats why we are here for you.”
Everyone needs gas and light to live in their house. What most of us still don’t know is that you can choose your own supplier and save your energybill. Just like Shell and BP, if there are two gas stations next to each other and shell asks $1.50 litre and B.P provides $1.30 litre, where would you tank? Exactly. Why would you pay more for the exact same product? Luckily, nowadays people are getting more awareness and it can really save your bill. Now I can imagine you don’t have interest to find out which company is cheaper and how much it can save you and all the things you need to do for it. So thats why we have these guys that do all the paper work for you! They will show you exactly how much it will save you! I mean if nothing changes and you can save money. Who cares about the logo right?
They had to prove themselves because they just started, with no papers and as two “young boys”. At that time Dennis was 21 and Robin just turned 19. They made a deal to make 40 deals for that period. People did not think this was manageable. And they were right. They did not make 40 deals that period. They made 50! This duo gives a good example of – Turn your passion into work and you will never have to work again. ”A day of work flies by. I don’t even feel like I’m working. Selling your personality in combination with a good product equals sales.”
What are you guys doing?
Profit Supply aims to save your cost on your energy bill. Most companies want to give you a disccount just for the first year because you are a new customer. Profit Supply is looking for ways to keep giving discount even the year after.
Ever since we were little we wanted to start a business together. We were already in the energy market and we saw that the companies could only give the customers a discount for the first year, we felt so bad. So now we came up with a solution to give them discount every year.
Friends vs Work
Make good choices with who you want to do business with. When you become their boss it is sometimes hard to tell them what to do, without sounding bossy. The switch from friend to boss can cause a lot of conflicts. So choose wisely.
What are your goals?
We are now based in just some parts of Holland, We want to go national.
What is the your main secret what no one else can know about?
I would have made less costs. Thats a big tip I wanna share with other entrepreneurs. We work with a system where we get payed after the contract are verified. But the employees had to get payed for this month. It can be tricky so try make as little costs as possible !
