Jay is joined by author, speaker, world record holder, entrepreneur and investor Rob Moore, back for a return engagement for the Business Mentor Podcast, in what is being billed as his most intimate interview ever!
Rob is here to answer your questions, and the response has been phenomenal. Listen as he discusses parenting, networking, podcasting, politics and what makes a good interview…
- There isn’t much Rob regrets, but he does mourn the fact that he didn’t take his entrepreneurial chances a little earlier in life. There were chances that he could have taken, but didn’t. But Rob’s view on his past is that it’s always best to focus on the now, and on the future. As he puts it, “I don’t look back, I look forward”
- The most important thing, and the most rewarding, is to help others achieve their best. Rob’s success is incredible, but the real pleasure comes from knowing that he helps, influences and benefits others who are on the way up.
- When it comes to podcast guests for his show, Rob speaks to people that he thinks his audience will find interesting. The guest may not always be someone Rob likes or shares a point of view with, but the challenge is something he relishes. The qualities he generally looks for in a guest are:
- Are they controversial?
- Will the guest help the show to reach a new demographic?
- Is the guest being requested by the audience?
- Rob doesn’t subscribe to the current trend for putting people down in public, especially those who are clearly more successful than others. They have got to where they are through clever marketing and by being the best in their field, no matter what their politics or beliefs are.
- It’s always better to concentrate on the things in life we can control. That should always be the focus for your time, energy, enthusiasm and work.
- Rob’s main ambition in life is to help as many people on the planet get better financial education and to start and scale their businesses, especially young and under-privileged entrepreneurs.
- The best way to reach your customer base is by any means possible. It’s always better to be on every social media channel, use every type of contact available, especially those your competition aren’t using. Rob uses handwritten letters to reach people and has seen huge success. Plus, using these methods allows for new ways to be disruptive.
- ‘We all have challenges, we all have fallouts. That’s just part of business’
- ‘I don’t look back, I look forward’
- ’The success of others is really the measure of your own success’
- ‘I try to have a multidimensional thought process when it comes to my guests’
- ‘I like to think about what I can control, not what I can’t’
- ‘When my time is up I want to have helped millions create a better life with their finances and business’
- ‘Being disruptive means never standing still’
ABOUT THE GUEST
Rob Moore is a triple best- selling Property Author, public speaker, entrepreneur, and multi-million- pound Property Investor.
He co- founded the UK’s biggest property education company Progressive Property in 2006 with Mark Homer and has since helped over 100,000 entrepreneurs towards achieving the same, including consulting for many established multi-millionaires and keynoting at some of the UK’s most important business events.
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 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.
