Welcome back to another episode of the Business Mentor Podcast. Today, Jay takes you to a keynote talk at his junior school where his journey in business and entrepreneurship all started. Listen in to hear Jay inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and learn a little bit more about the Business Mentor himself.
- Working hard is the number one rule to being successful. Continue to put the effort in and you will see improvements in many areas of your life. No matter where you are or where you come from you need to work hard. You have the same ability as anyone, you just need to pay attention and when you work hard you get rewards.
- Getting yourself a mentor at a young age is essential to success. You’ll learn about business, get accountability and support.
“Always makes the time to go back and help support the school that supported Jay.”
“Whatever you want you can achieve it. Work hard at it and day by day continuously improve”
“There’s a market for young entrepreneurs, they’re clever, engaged and they want to learn”
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I was younger but I know I wanted to do well.”
ABOUT THE HOST
Jay Dhillon is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in the UK with a proven track record of growing businesses from start-up to success- and helping others do the same. From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0-500 employees and three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all without any investment other than a small amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few.
Its huge success inevitably brought about outside interest and at the age 33 Jay eventually sold the company to a London investment firm in Doyen Resources. Today, Jay owns several businesses in different sectors and helps entrepreneurs achieve success.
A calling to give back and help others led to Jay being chosen for the highly-coveted role as a Prince’s Trust mentor, where his achievements were marked by a personal invitation to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince Charles.
After helping several young entrepreneurs to success as a mentor for the Trust, Jay’s burning desire to bring his wisdom and knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast.
Jay feels that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring and is now sharing his knowledge with his growing audience via his podcast.
In the UK alone 95% of business fail within the first five years and Jay’s aim is to reduce that number.
Backed with the hard-earned knowledge and experience from his time in business, The Business Mentor Podcast will share Jay’s personal business lessons as well those of other successful entrepreneur guests who share their wisdom and secrets on the show.
