Starting your own business either with the help of people like Enigin PLC or trading completely independently could prove to be one of the best decisions of your life… conversely it could turn out disastrous! However, the exciting thing is the outcome is almost entirely in your hands.
If you are thinking seriously about starting a new business as a distributor for energy saving products you are sure to find the information on this site very helpful and practical. While opinions are readily available from various sources about what may and may not work what I can offer you is years of practical experience as a designer, manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of energy saving products and solutions in both the commercial and industrial sectors.
I am presently Technology Director of Enigin PLC, and while the company may be relatively new on the global scene, the people behind Enigin have a strong pedigree in this industry. You can follow some of the major milestones I achieved over the years in “The Journey So Far” section of this site. It will also give you an invaluable insight into the final stages that led up to the formation of Enigin PLC – particularly relevant if you are considering sharing our success.
So… what’s the main purpose of this personalised “Ian Wrigley” site, and in what specific way is it fundamentally different from the information provided on the official Enigin website? Is there information here that is not on the ‘official’ Enigin web-site?
Firstly I believe I can give you an important level of objectivity on both Enigin as a company and (as a Founder Director), my personal values and approach to business. This I am providing without charge and with no obligation regardless of whether we work together in the hope it may help YOU on your journey.
Enigin was ‘born’ so to speak in 2006, which is relatively recent, with the primary objective of taking Eniscope and the EnergyMaps concept to a waiting global market. The Senior Management Team on the other hand have decades of hands-on practical experience within the energy saving business and most of us have worked together for many years. Although in ‘official terms’ Enigin can only publish information on what it has achieved since inception (which in the opinion of many is outstanding), and what it aspires to achieve in the future. Whereas I can personally speak from a broader perspective not only because I have started several successful businesses from scratch and understand the difficulties involved and the pitfalls to be avoided, I have also spent most of my thirty plus years as a businessman delivering energy saving products.
Because I introduced people to this business decades ago who are still going strong, I can share their experiences as well. I firmly believe businesses are really about people and the resources they bring to the table. I hope you will benefit from these experiences.
Secondly, I have huge respect for those people who have fortitude and dare to be different by courageously ‘pinning their colours to the mast’ with resolute determination to succeed. I relish the opportunity to interact with like-minded professional people who have made the decision to take control of their lives, personally and professionally, and if by sharing this information others can benefit it gives me a greater sense of fulfillment. I relish being actively involved in each Enigin partner training programme and I have met many fascinating people from various backgrounds and cultures over the years.
Finally, I hate to see people ‘throw in the towel’ all too quickly, when for the sake of a little more encouragement and persistence they could have begun to see positive results. I have had considerable positive feedback since this site was launched and some within the industry have said the information has profoundly influenced their lives. I welcome constructive feedback, only a fool believes he knows it all, so a big thank you to everyone who’s contributed.
The good news is that today we live in one of the most spectacular times in all human history – more than at any other time we live in a world of opportunity. I believe the energy saving business is one such business opportunity with massive potential – but it is most definitely NOT a get-rich-quick scheme.
All of us would like to think of ourselves as having the capacity to really make a difference both in our own lives and the lives of others! Our destiny in life is no longer automatically determined through some accident of birth – now more than ever we have the opportunity to shape our lives for the better. Is it not a wonderful concept to realize that we can create the kind of future we both want and deserve for our families and ourselves, regardless of where we might be today? The timing is perfect for you to start your own business as an independent distributor, and with a range of unique, quality, energy saving products from Enigin PLC you could soon be well on your way.
While starting your own energy saving business requires commitment and is certainly not for the faint hearted (it’s no exception running your own distributorship as an Enigin partner), we don’t have to make massive investments and huge personal sacrifices slogging our gut’s out just to make end’s meet in the vain hope that one day we might just ‘make it’… it’s actually relatively easy to get right – once you know how – and enormously fulfilling when you succeed in creating your own profitable asset based business. However, there is a flip side… it is also easy to get it wrong – and unfortunately most people do, simply, because they don’t understand the Pitfalls to be avoided or fail to implement the Critical Success Factors for starting any new business. So, be all means read my white paper entitled: “Don’t Start An Energy Saving Business Until You Have Read This“, which you can download from this site.
It was an incredible ‘eureka’ moment in my life to discover that as a young entrepreneur my success in life was limited only by my own mental capacity. By this I mean my or YOUR ability to visualise the kind of lifestyle you want… and then work progressively to develop the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to enable you to identify and take hold of the opportunities that unfold each day.
As kindred spirits I sincerely hope that by sharing some helpful information with you here today, your journey will be as enjoyable and rewarding as mine has, and still is!
To your success,
Ian Wrigley FRSA
