Jay’s finding that lots of people are asking him similar questions, on of which is how to use social media. In this episode of The Business Mentor podcast Jay answers this popular question and expresses the importance of focusing on yourself and your journey rather than those of other peoples.
- Social media is a great platform but don’t believe everything you see. People on there want engagement and attention.
- I look to inspire other people on social media.
- Don’t look at social media as an indication of your performance because people often fake how their life really is on there. They don’t tell you about their problems and issues they may be having.
- Don’t look at social media and think because you don’t have the same success as someone on there, you’re failing.
- Look at where you are now and think about what you can change right now for yourself to get to where you want to be. Break down the steps and make little changes daily until you get there.
- Look at your own journey not other peoples because often you don’t know what’s actually happening in someone else’s life outside of their social media.
‘Use social media as a motivation.’
‘Don’t use social media as an indicator of how well people are doing.’
‘Make sure you do your diligence.’
‘Don’t compare yourself to others on social media.’
‘Put in the work. Avoid the mistakes.’
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.
