In tribute to Kobe Bryant, who has recent passed away in a tragic accident, Jay covers 10 life lessons that Kobe has inspired Jay to implement into his life to improve personally and professionally.  


  • Always have a winning mentality because if you’re telling yourself that you’re going to loose, it’s more than likely that you’re going to loose. 
  • Keep learning, improving and paying attention because you’ve got to keep studying your craft. 
  • Work hard. If you follow Kobe’s story, one thing he always stood by was working hard. He practised the same shot over and over again. 
  • Live through pain, don’t let it defeat you. Have he right mind-set to go through the pain to get that result you wanted. 
  • Huge success only comes with huge sacrifice. Dedication and sacrificing all comes along with business too and it’s something we all will have to do. 
  • Never admit defeat. If you’re defeated in your mind, you’ve already lost. 
  • Don’t loose your edge and keep what makes you you. You often become unmotivated If you loose your edge so it’s important not to loose it. 
  • Never hate your haters, use it as ammunition and energy to drive you forward to prove them wrong. 
  • Conker your fear, everyone has to start somewhere but step by step you will get better. The more you do it, they better you’ll get. 
  • Leaders can’t win population contests. You’re not going to ever please everyone. 


Kobe’s passed away but his legacy carries on!’ 

‘The more you work, the more you get back’. 

‘If you want it, you will do it’. 

‘Life is short so enjoy it’ 


Recruitment Boss


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 to 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 of 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.
